Meet Our Comfort Keepers® Caregivers and Home Care Aides
Our team of caregivers and home care aides are qualified, caring and ready to help
Below you will find a few of the team members who make up our Comfort Keepers family. Every member of our team shares the Comfort Keepers® values. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care aides and caregivers. Those who pass this initial screening go on to complete a comprehensive training, ensuring they are prepared to deliver our special brand of home care as Comfort Keepers® caregivers and home care aides.
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.
Rocky and Diane Genovese
Rocky Genovese, owner and founder of St. Joseph Comfort Keepers, has always had a heart for seniors. He explains, “I got involved in home care to help seniors stay as independent, as long as possible, where they most want to be—near loved ones, in the familiar surroundings of home.”
He adds, “It makes me feel very good knowing I am helping families, and that motivates me to do more for them. I am concerned when I see seniors being forced out of their homes, because I know, that with just a little help, they could continue living at home.”
Rocky entered in-home care with Comfort Keepers after seeking a new career that would provide his life greater meaning and fulfillment. One particular experience led him to home care. He helped provide care for a life-long friend who had a less than satisfactory experience with a home care agency. That convinced Rocky of the need for quality, compassionate home care providers.
In 2009, Diane joined Comfort Keepers as Community Relations Director. She says, “I share Rocky’s passion for enhancing seniors’ quality of life. When he told me he felt we would make a great team serving seniors through Comfort Keepers, I felt in my heart that this was my calling. Having grown up in a close-knit family, with elderly aunts and uncles, I have always had a fondness for seniors and a keen understanding of their strong desire to maintain independence and comfort in their own homes.”
