    Pros

    Love the mission of Comfort Keepers....to provide care to our clients as if we were caring for a member of our own family. There are many training opportunities. they have flexible scheduling and I like the ability to work one on one with a client and make a difference in someones life. It makes me feel good knowing i helped someone.

    Cons

    Overall this is a good company. Not everything is perfect but they have an open door policy so if i have a complaint I know someone will listen

    Pros

    You are out and about during the day and get to spend a good amount of time with your client.

    Pay is very low, reimbursement for gas spent is low, scheduling of clients was too crowded.

    I have been working at Comfort Keepers full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company really tries to work with a schedule that works for you. Pay is better than other local companies and I am very happy with them. They also fit caregivers and clients well. They really do try. I am full time and they give me all the hours that I want.

    Cons

    I really don't have any. I was hired immediately.

    I have been working at Comfort Keepers

    Pros

    The clients I've had from Comfort Keepers have been more like family to me than clients. I am very comfortable with my supervisors. Any time I have a question concerning my client my supervisors are there on call or call me back within fifteen minutes.

    Cons

    I have no cons to report.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My supervisors make me feel like family. I have no improvements to suggest.

    I have been working at Comfort Keepers part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They are amazing at matching you with a client. Once I told them I play piano they placed me with a client who was a music teacher before he retired. We had such a great time together!

    Cons

    When a client is hospitalized you may lose hours unless they can find you a case to sub into but this is true for pretty much any home care company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like more training throughout the year.
