Why I Opened My ComForCare Location
When my mother’s health began to deteriorate, I realized the quality of care I wanted for her was difficult to find. My family and I weren’t close to her geographically, so we looked for help in the area where she lived. Instead, we found scheduling inconsistencies, a rotating door of caregivers, and sporadic adherence to the care plan. We could not find good reliable care. I knew my mother struggled with her loss of independence, and I felt frustrated at the lack of quality options. I wanted to make sure other families were able to avoid these tragedies by offering compassionate, superior care for their loved ones.
I Love Seeing a Client Smile
As an owner, I am very hands-on in our business every day. I go to the initial client meet and greet to introduce myself because I want to make sure everyone feels comfortable and confident with us. I think it makes a client feel more secure when they can meet the owner.
Many of our clients have been dealt a hand they didn’t anticipate. Our mission is to improve their situation and make their life better, in any way possible. When we accomplish that, we’ve done our job. Quite simply, that is my goal each day.
The thing that gives me the most pleasure is seeing a client smile. I love to know we are having a positive impact on their day. We sincerely want our clients and their families to live their best life possible, and we go above and beyond to help.
We have a great staff at McHenry County ComForCare, and we hire only the most compassionate people. Sheryl Taubin, our director of client care and a Certified Dementia Practitioner®, loves to bake cookies or pretzels with clients or do things with them that they have always enjoyed, but can’t do anymore. These small gestures have significant benefits for the well-being of our clients. We strive to touch their hearts and share special moments with them every day.
