The ComForCare Franchise Story
Join the brand that revolutionized home-care solutions for aging adults
When ComForCare opened its first location in Michigan in 1996, in-home senior care was an emerging industry. In the 20+ years since our founding, millions of families have relied on in-home care services to help their aging loved ones get the care they need and deserve.
As an early entrant into the burgeoning in-home care industry, ComForCare quickly made a name for itself by creating thorough training programs designed to help franchise owners overcome a major obstacle: staff retention. Through its CaregiverFirst program, as well as a 10-step hiring process and opportunities for certification and job growth, ComForCare has created a system that finds and keeps the best and most talented caregivers.
ComForCare also leads the industry in client-oriented programming in the memory care space. Its DementiaWise program has received accolades from the Alzheimer’s Association and others for its overall approach to memory care, including Joyful Memories, a music-oriented therapy.
