Meet Some of Our Team Members

(661) 287-4200 * (818) 360-1995

Our team is uniquely qualified and ready to help 

Every member of our team is professional, well trained and has hands-on experience with caring for an aging loved one. Each member of our team --caregivers and office staff-- undergoes a thorough, nationwide criminal background check, a DMV check and a Homeland Security check prior to being hired. These screenings are done every year on the team member's anniversary date. 

All caregivers and office staff are bonded, covered by Workers' Compensation insurance and we pay the payroll taxes. In short, we assume 100 percent of the employer responsibilty, so that you and your family do not have to. 

Joanna Frady

Staffing Coordinator

Joanna has been Comfort Keepers' Staffing Coordinator for over 4 years, but her experience with caring for seniors goes back much further. While caring for her aging grandparents, Joanna developed a deep understanding of what it really means to provide care for an elderly loved one. It is this compassion and her deep sense of commitment to helping seniors that makes her so good at her job. With warmth and professionalism, Joanna is the expert at matching just the right caregiver with a client in order to create a seamless transition. 

"When I am matching my caregivers with clients, I consider not only skill sets, but also personalities and personal interests so that the client and the caregiver feel like they belong together. You can't just put any caregiver with a client. You have to make a match." --Joanna Frady
