Comfort Keepers Raises Hourly Wages to $15.00
Posted by Rockford Buzz
Posted on April 10, 2021
Comfort Keepers®, a leading franchise network in the in-home care market for seniors and other adults needing care, has taken great strides to express their appreciation for their caregivers for all the help and joy they deliver to seniors during the pandemic and beyond. With COVID-19 creating unprecedented circumstances for seniors who found themselves isolated or unable to safely reside with loved ones, these caregivers found ways to safely support, inspire and uplift their clients in the comfort of their own homes. To express their gratitude for the essential work caregivers perform every day, the company has taken steps to enhance pay, benefits and training in Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin and nationwide.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the Comfort Keepers caregivers found ways to stay safe while helping to maintain the health and well-being of some of the country’s most vulnerable. In support of their hard work and dedication, the company is now offering wage increases along with their 401(K)-retirement plan matching, expanded benefits and employee recognition programs. By making these enhancements, Comfort Keepers is able to increase their caregivers’ overall standard of living to better attract, train and retain the best professional staff in the business.
“Our caregivers have shown incredible dedication, flexibility and devotion for their job and the seniors they care for,” said Mark Podemski, Owner of Comfort Keepers. “By enhancing pay, benefits, and training for our caregivers, we can increase their quality of life and in turn, help ensure our overall mission of delivering joy and meaning to seniors every day. Our caregivers are heroic in their own right and we want to say thank you for all the valuable work they provide to our community.”
In Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin, Comfort Keepers is looking to expand its caregiver family and hire compassionate, responsible caregivers who are wanting to provide seniors a sense of joy and a greater quality of life. A typical caregiver job description may include meal preparation, companionship, transportation, running errands, helping with personal care and more. The job is very rewarding on its own – but also offers starting wages of $15.00 per hour, benefits, job training and flexible schedules. Visit ComfortKeepers.com for more information.
