“In this town, we take care of each other. It’s how I was raised and how we run our business today.” -Chris Churches 

Rooted in Community and Caring

“Right fit, right time!” That’s what this husband/wife team felt when they saw an available ComForCare location in Chris’ hometown. With Kendra’s experience as a nurse and Chris’ business expertise and entrepreneurial spirit, this dynamic duo couldn’t be happier to hit the ground running after acquiring the ComForCare location in northern Michigan.

Being a trusted resource for care is what Chris and Kendra are all about. From the members on their team to the clients they serve, Chris and Kendra are committed their mission: Treat everyone like family and make a difference in their community.

“I always wanted to be a business owner, and Kendra is a rockstar nurse,” Chris said. “We are excited to leverage both of our strengths while making a positive impact on our community.”

Home: the Heart of the Matter

Chris grew up in Gaylord, and while Kendra was raised downstate, there was no denying this is where she belonged too.
“When we went to the grocery store and so many people knew Chris by name, I knew we had made the right choice in settling down here. It really feels like family.” Kendra recalls.
Chris and Kendra are now happily raising their two children in the town that means so much to them. That’s why treating their clients like family comes so naturally to them.
“In this town, we take care of each other. It’s how I was raised and how we run our business today.” Chris said.  
“Our dedication to the community is unstoppable,” Kendra adds. “At our core, we’re here to make people more comfortable and have better days in the comfort of their own home.”
