Both Kara Leong and Cindy Gustafson, owners of Comfort Keepers® East Bay, have always had a spot in their hearts for seniors.
Cindy has always been passionate about giving back and is an integral part of the community. Cindy joined Comfort Keepers as Community Relations Director. Searching for the right caregiving franchise was difficult, and Comfort Keepers with its Interactive Caregiving™, was the only brand which truly offered the level of personalized care that was important to her. Cindy recalled, “I felt in my heart that this was my calling. Having grown up in a close-knit family, with elderly aunts and uncles, I have always had a fondness for seniors and a keen understanding of their strong desire to maintain independence and comfort in their own homes.”
In August of 2012, Cindy joined Kara Leong, a Cal Berkeley graduate who had already been a Comfort Keepers owner for the previous two years. Kara explains, “I got involved with Comfort Keepers after my father had emergency heart surgery and was diagnosed with cancer. Dealing with the treatment and diagnosis of cancer has led me down a different path and the Comfort Keepers promise resonated with something deep inside me. The minute I joined Comfort Keepers, I knew I had found a place where I could make a real, meaningful difference. I belonged.”
Knowing firsthand the concerns that families have for aging seniors, their mission statement practically wrote itself. Summing it up in one sentence, Comfort Keepers East Bay is committed to "Providing the best, most engaging in home care possible at rates families of all income levels can afford."
What separates Comfort keepers East Bay from other home care agencies in the area is our commitment to providing the highest standard of quality that we can for our senior clients. We’ve worked hard and our Alzheimer’s and Dementia care standards are second-to-none and recognized throughout the community. We go above and beyond the call of duty, requiring all of our caregivers to enroll in Silverchair training with Dr. Elizabeth. This is in addition to all of the other training programs, background checks and professional recommendations that we require of our home health aides.
Interactive Caregiving™ is based on four primary pillars, which Comfort Keepers leverage to care for, engage, and interact with our clients:
- An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness, and a longer life.
- A physically active senior maintains strength and independence, lessening or delaying the effects of aging.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
With our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical in-home care providers.
