Testimonials

Founder’s Crest (Home) is a warm and open atmosphere with a lot of natural light. It has a fresh look and smell which is pleasing. My sister and I had a hard decision to leave mom in Wichita after our father passed away. Finding ComfortCare Homes was a blessing. The staff are loving, kind, gentle and caring with all of the Residents. It is like they are taking care of their own families.
