Testimonials

I am so proud of my father for making the crucial decision to allow ComfortCare Homes to care for my mom.  It is hard to decide to “give up” but he knew mom was in great hands.  I appreciate the staff support of me and my family in caring for mom after dad passed away.  I felt confident and positive at the whole expereince.  Thank you ComfortCare Homes (Founders Crest).
