Meet Our Comfort Keepers®

Our team is uniquely qualified and ready to help 

Every member of our team is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care providers, and only those who pass this process go on to complete training to deliver our special brand of home care and become Comfort Keepers®. What truly sets our people apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others. 

All Comfort Keepers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. They are bonded, insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

2012 Comfort Keeper of the Year: Margaret “Marge” Battle

Marge has spent most of her adult life caring for others. Marge has five children, the oldest 48 and the youngest 38, and nine grandchildren. In June 2013 she and her husband will celebrate 50 years of marriage. He speaks of her adoringly for the love and nurturing she has brought to their family and describes her as a natural caregiver, a trait that has been evident in every assignment she has covered throughout her tenure with Comfort Keepers®. Over the past three years, Marge has touched the lives of thirteen clients and their families. Although each relationship is uniquely different, Marge has embraced each with determination, compassion and integrity. When Marge accepted her position as a Comfort Keeper® on July 3, 2009, her goal was to “Make people happy”.

Marge’s thirteen clients would be honored to know that she is being nominated for this award especially Father P, a Roman Catholic priest, who was most particular about his care and meal preparation. Father P had interviewed eight girls before accepting Marge as his caregiver and fondly referred to her as his “Little Miss Sunshine”. She had a calming effect on Father P, who could be a bit rambunctious. His brother and sister-in-law, who lived in Ohio, were forever grateful knowing Marge cared for him like a member of her family.

I am a methodical thinker who strives to maximize efficiencies and believe that delivering your best every day, no matter what you are doing, is the stepping stone to excellence. I work daily to create an environment that allows our team to be challenged, grow as individuals, and embrace servant-hood. I enjoy working in this industry rooted in such a deep purpose and feel blessed to serve each client with their unique challenges. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family (Carol, Alyssa and when possible Whitney, Josh and now my grandson Jackson), being active with our church, and taking advantage of outdoor activities.

I am a creative thinker who has been put in many boxes throughout my career with one emerging theme, meaningful communications. I strive to create, facilitate and foster communications that truly connect individuals in reaching a common goal . . the right care for you or your loved ones. I promote our capabilities to the local community, coordinate a team of CSA’s (certified senior advisors), and partner with other care providers to ensure the right care is given for each situation. In my spare time I love to explore the wonder of creation through the eyes of my children (Lydia and coming soon Spencer). We enjoy the arts, sports and everything in-between.

In my spare time I love boating, outdoor activities, gardening, cooking, spending time with family and friends.
