The ComForCare Franchise Story
Join the brand that revolutionized home-care solutions for aging adults.
When ComForCare opened its first location in Michigan in 1996, in-home senior care was an emerging industry. In the 20+ years since our founding, millions of families have relied on in-home care services to help their aging loved ones get the care they need and deserve.
As an early entrant into the burgeoning in-home care industry, ComForCare quickly made a name for itself by creating thorough training programs designed to help franchise owners overcome a major obstacle: staff retention. Through its CaregiverFirst program, as well as a comprehensive hiring process and opportunities for certification and job growth, ComForCare has created a system that finds and keeps the best and most talented caregivers.
ComForCare created DementiaWise®, a comprehensive care approach for people with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia that focuses on accentuating the positive by supporting and encouraging remaining skills and abilities; and Joyful Memories®, an interactive, singalong program that uses the power of music to create connections and positive outlets for emotional expression.
ComForCare’s DementiaWise® is recognized by the Alzheimer’s Association® for incorporating evidenced-based Dementia Care Practice Recommendations in the following topic areas: Alzheimer’s and dementia, person-centered care, assessment and care planning, activities of daily living, and behaviors and communication.
