Comfort Keepers provides in-home care assistance, such as cooking nutritious meals, light housekeeping, running errands, medication reminders, and assistance with bathing.

Shar is a top performing franchisee because she demonstrates a strong commitment to her own franchise and clearly delivers quality service to seniors and other adults in the Milwaukee County area.” said Jim Booth, President and CEO of CK Franchising, Inc. “Shar’s attention to managing exceptional caregivers and other personnel, efficient operations management, as well as effective sales and marketing efforts are reflected in her location’s success.”

The Meller family has dedicated their lives to make that difference. As we expect our caregivers who are simply the best to treat each client as a family member the owners treat their administrative staff and caregivers with the same love.
