Meet Our Owner
Mark Sheets climbed the corporate ladder successfully, working for more than 20 years at executive levels of Fortune 500 companies. He has an extensive background in financial services and information technology, but his Christian faith led him in another direction.
“I was looking for more of a way to help people in a direct way,” Mark said. “As I climbed the corporate ladder, I felt more and more of my time and energy were being spent on things that were not as important as they could be.”
His search for an opportunity to serve people led him to launch Comfort Keepers® in Greater Richmond in 2005. Mark and his team of caregivers provide in-home senior care services in Richmond and its neighboring communities in Chesterfield, Henrico, and Powhatan counties.
Why You Should Consider Comfort Keepers
In the Richmond area, we make a point of providing high-quality and reliable services that make it possible for your loved one to live independently in his/her own home. There are many companies providing similar senior care, but we believe that our Comfort Keepers are among the best.
Our care begins by carefully selecting the people we send into your loved one’s home. We provide higher pay and benefits to attract the best caregivers available and provide extensive training to prepare our caregivers to support your senior’s needs.
“We hire higher quality folks, and it requires higher quality folks to make it through our rigorous training,” Mark said.
What makes Comfort Keepers of Richmond different from other senior care services?
Our background checks on potential employees exceed state standards, and we update them every year. Our nursing supervisors make frequent visits to the homes of our clients to make sure that our personalized services meet their specific needs. The frequency of these visits also exceeds what the state requires and what other senior care companies provide.
And we can create a care plan that’s customized to exactly what will support your wishes to live safely and independently in your own home.
“No matter what you need, we can find personal services or the technology to meet your need. Because of our association with Comfort Keepers®, we have more options available to meet your needs,” Mark said.
Mark and our team focus on providing you or your loved one with the help and support you need, but Mark has not forgotten why he left the corporate world to start Comfort Keepers in the Richmond area. His priority is still taking care of others and hiring the best people to help him do that.
“We are also able to provide jobs to people that have a heart for helping other people. That’s a true blessing,” Mark said.
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.
