About Our Location
Located in Clarksville, TN and locally owned by Clarksville native, Carolyn Beatty Steiner. This location serves Montgomery, Stewart, Houston, and Robertson counties, including the cities of Springfield, Greenbrier, Dover, and the surrounding communities. Our home care services range from short term to long term schedules, from just a few hours to 24 hour continuous care. Comfort Keepers services are available wherever our clients reside, from private homes, to senior care communities, and assisted living facilities; as well as hospitals, and rehabilitation facilities.
Few things are more important than a person’s independence. If you or someone you love is becoming less able to care for themselves, or if you or a loved one need assistance while recovering from surgery, or an extended illness, Comfort Keepers can help. We've spent a decade helping our neighbors live happy, independent lives in their own homes, as well as adults needing short term care by providing them with personal care, companionship, homemaking services, and safety solutions.
About The Owner, Carolyn Beatty Steiner
My Father cared for my Mother the last three years of her life. I was an only child living far away from home, so I was not able to help my Dad care for my Mother. As Mother's condition worsened, it became increasingly difficult for my Dad to accomplish daily tasks, such as going to the grocery store. There are only so many times you can ask a neighbor, or family members (with their own health issues) to come over to help, or just sit with my Mom to give Dad some much needed respite.
A year and a half after my Mom passed away, I learned my Dad had cancer, and desperately needed my help (even though he wouldn't admit it). I lived 900 miles away, and was employed with a Fortune 500 company's corporate office, so Daddy didn't want to bother me, or interrupt my life. As soon as I found out the truth of my Dad's condition, I was on the next flight (despite all the warnings of the next terrorist attack). You see, my Dad learned he had cancer on 9/11, and he didn't even know about the terrorist attacks the night I called him. I learned of his failing health condition on the following Halloween, when there were looming threats of more attacks. I didn't care though, because that was the only Daddy I had, and I knew God would ensure that I made it safely to him. Needless to say, I took FMLA for the next six plus months, and unfortunately, my Dad finally lost his battle with cancer nine months after being diagnosed. Like so many caregivers' stories, I truly believed Daddy ignored his own health for months while caring for my Mother.
I too suffered losses while caring for my Father, just like so many family caregivers do now. My personal life, and my professional life suffered, but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Six months after my Dad's death, I learned I would be losing my 12 year career within the next three months. While on severance, and working with my outplacement service, I found Comfort Keepers. What a difference a company such as Comfort Keepers would have made for both my Dad, and me while we were struggling family caregivers. I knew Comfort Keepers, and the franchise opportunity they offered was a Godsend; therefore, I brought Comfort Keepers to Clarksville, TN in 2003. In 2013 we celebrated our 10th Anniversary, and I, along with my staff am looking forward to celebrating another 10 years, and beyond.
Comfort Keepers Mission
Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest level of quality of life that is achievable. We shall treat each of our clients with the respect and dignity they deserve, as though we were caring for a member of our own family.
The special people who deliver our unique brand of in-home senior care (We call them Comfort Keepers®.) are carefully selected, screened, and trained to provide professional, compassionate care.
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.
