A community leader and advocate for senior citizens, Myles McNamara opened the Santa Clarita, California, Comfort Keepers® franchise in 2001 to help Santa Clarita Valley seniors age with dignity and independence in their own homes.
Not only is this Comfort Keepers office an in-home care expert and a premier provider of in-home senior care services, the Santa Clarita Comfort Keepers has become recognized one of the region’s leading senior care resources. McNamara is a Certified Senior Advisor, a charter member and Past President of the Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center Foundation Board, and is active in raising money for senior causes, as well as other community involvement. He also produces and hosts the radio show “Aging with Power” on KHTS AM 1220, with the goal to empower seniors and their families with information.
With over 600 independently owned and operated franchises in the U.S. and abroad, Comfort Keepers has earned the reputation as a premier provider of quality in-home care. McNamara was drawn to the company by its mission to provide clients the highest level of quality of life that is achievable.
The Santa Clarita Comfort Keepers franchise enriches the lives of clients and provides their families the peace of mind that their loved ones are receiving compassionate, professional care that helps them to live safely and happily at home. As the owner and manager of the Santa Clarita franchise, McNamara enjoys helping seniors and seeing the smile on families’ faces when they realize that Comfort Keepers is here to support them and make their parents’ or relatives’ lives better.
Comfort Keepers provides a full range of services—companionship, personal care, and home safety and technology—that can be tailored to meet the evolving needs of seniors as they age at home, as well as independent adults who could use a little extra help around the house.
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.
A Trusted Senior Care Resource
Regarded as a trusted provider of quality in-home senior care services, the Santa Clarita Comfort Keepers franchise also has earned recognition as a knowledgeable, go-to resource for valuable information on the full range of senior services available in the Santa Clarita Valley. This service furthers our mission to support families and seniors through the transitions of aging and help seniors achieve the highest quality of life.
To help connect clients to a full array of senior services they may need, Comfort Keepers works and partners with a wide range of organizations, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospice and home health care agencies. We also offer a range of home safety technology solutions, which includes personal safety options such as personal emergency response units and medication management systems.
Having earned a reputation in the community for always following through with quality in-home care, the Santa Clarita Comfort Keepers franchise receives many word-of-mouth referrals from a wide range of senior service providers. And we stand apart from other in-home care providers for Comfort Keepers’ unique approach to in-home care, called Interactive Caregiving™. We involve our clients in their home care and offer them a mix of physical activity, mental stimulation, emotional support and social engagement that promotes their independence and quality of life.
In addition to providing homemaking and personal care services, our Comfort Keepers®—the name we give the special people who deliver Comfort Keepers’ special brand of caregiving—take walks with clients, work on puzzles with clients, engage in conversation, take clients to church or social events, all types of activities that are important to them and enrich their lives. Numerous studies support the concept that this type of caregiving promotes the health and well-being of seniors.
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.
