ComForcare owners share their experience owning and managing a home care franchise in Tennessee.
Home care came as a natural decision for Keith and Glenda Burke when they were looking into a new career path. Both had previous experience dealing with the challenges of finding reliable and affordable home care services for their aging parents. The couple chose to pursue a home care franchise with ComForcare because they were drawn to the company’s patient-centered care process.
Driven by Personal Experience
Keith helped his brothers care for their parents when his mother and father were both diagnosed with cancer. Similarly, Glenda provided support for her mother and father as while they dealt with various challenges as they aged. Her father was confined to a wheelchair following a stroke, after which, her mother’s health began to deteriorate. For both Keith and Glenda, the responsibilities of caring for both of their parents were very demanding and greatly affected their families.
As a result of these experiences, the couple wanted to provide other families with assistance caring for elderly loved ones. They understood the financial, emotional, and physical challenges of providing home care for a family member, and wanted to make sure others in their community had the support they needed.
“When the opportunity was provided to open ComForcare, we both knew it was the right thing to do,” shares Glenda.
A Reliable Professional Care Team
The Burkes now manage a team of home care nurses who are fully trained and qualified to provide professional home care services. They offer assistance for clients who may be dealing with the challenges of aging, a chronic condition, or recovering from a serious illness or injury. They also provide hospice assistance and comprehensive care services for those affected by dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
The Burkes own an independent home care franchise with ComForcare which gives them the freedom of independent ownership, while also delivering support, guidance, and award-winning care programs offered by ComForcare.
Offering a Client-Centered Care Model
For the Burkes, client-centered care is the most important and most enjoyable aspect of their work. They enjoy being able to listen to client needs and then offering personalized services that fit each clients’ unique situation. They are also committed to partnering with each clients’ entire care team, including family, doctors, pharmacists and specialists. By maintaining open and clear lines of communication, ComForcare home care nurses are able to update care plans as necessary to offer the highest degree of service.
Keith and Glenda Burke look forward to the future growth and success of their business and are honored to be a part of their community, providing personal and reliable home care services to seniors and their families.
