History

Starting the In-Home Care Service
The Comfort Keepers® story began in 1997 when Kris Clum, a registered nurse in home healthcare, recognized the need at first hand. Sometimes her patients’ requests were simple – a loaf of bread or a pint of milk. Sometimes, they simply wanted a few minutes of conversation to brighten the day.

However, as a nurse, she was only allowed to tend to her patients’ “medical” needs. Kris and her entrepreneurial husband, Jerry Clum, Jr., knew they could provide a solution.

Today, that solution is known as Comfort Keepers and it provides in-home care to thousands of people worldwide.

Comfort Keepers now offers in-home care from over 550 franchised offices throughout the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal and Singapore.  Just recently, in the US, the system was ranked No.1 in Senior Care by Entrepreneur Magazine, won a Franchise 50 Award for franchisee satisfaction from Franchise Business Review and was named in the Up & Comers 100 Companies on the Verge in Franchise Times.
