IRVINE, California, April 26, 2023 – Comfort Keepers®, a market-leading provider of uplifting home care for seniors and adults who need assistance, has been awarded the Great Places to Work® Certification – a program managed by the Great Places to Work Institute and its senior care partner Activated Insights. The certification process involved surveying employees from Comfort Keepers locations across the country and evaluating more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. The survey found that 87% of employees at Comfort Keepers say it is a great place to work compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.
Currently celebrating their 25th Anniversary, Comfort Keepers has helped tens of thousands of seniors and their families find connection, positivity and purpose, while providing meaningful support for the caregivers who nurture them. The Great Places to Work survey evaluated both Comfort Keepers caregivers and office staff nationwide on topics such as, employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on both caregiver and employee experiences, no matter who they are or what they do for the company.

- 94% said their work has special meaning and this is not “just a job.”
