ComForCare Featured in Minnesota Good Life Magazine
Senior housing developments are popping up all over the Twin Cities metro area, rising steadily along with the number of baby boomers entering old age.
And yet, the vast majority of Minnesotans age 65 and older own their homes and don’t plan to leave anytime soon.
But how are older adults, who often have special care needs, managing to age in place?
Family and friends often help with caregiving. Another option is hiring out for home-care services — another business sector that’s growing along with the aging baby boomer population.
Take, for example, ComForCare Home Care of St. Paul. It’s the fourth franchise of its kind to open in the Twin Cities as part of Michigan-based ComForCare, an international company that was founded in 1996 and began franchising in 2001.
ComForCare Featured in Summit Hill Living Magazine
Combining their work experience to meet the rising needs of seniors for hom healthcare, three St. Paul residents opened ComForCare Home Care of St. Paul last month. Cathy Daigle, RN, serves as the Director of Nursing. Jalane Mosley, RN and Kim Kirmeier, a business development strategist, together co-own ComForCare Home Care of St. Paul, a premier provider of private in-home care services for people of all ages, serving the greater St. Paul area and north to Spring Lake Park.
Before opening ComForCare, the two owners worked for more than two decades in their respective fields. Kirmeier, a Summit Hill resident, worked in business development and marketing. Mosley, who lives in Highland Park, has been a registered nurse for more than 20 years, including 15 as a clinic director. Both owners feel strongly about giving back to their community and becoming advocates for seniors and their families. They also county themselves among the sandwich generation, raising children while tending to the needs of senior parents and friends who require more assistance to remain in their homes.
