Comfort Keepers Mission
Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest level of quality of life that is achievable. We shall treat each of our clients with the respect and dignity they deserve, as though we were caring for a member of our own family.
The special people who deliver our unique brand of in-home senior care (We call them Comfort Keepers®.) are carefully selected, screened, and trained to provide professional, compassionate care.
About Our Location
Considered the premier provider of in-home care for seniors and other adults, Comfort Keepers® got its start in the Miami Valley, more than a decade ago. Kris Butler (Clum), owner of the Springfield Comfort Keepers office, co-founded Comfort Keepers after discovering, as a registered nurse, that many of her patients needed - besides medical care - help with the activities of daily living.
Their children, busy with work and family, weren’t always available to assist them. Kris felt that with the help of a reliable, quality in-home care provider these individuals could continue living safely and healthfully in their own homes.
Today this proves true in more than 650 Comfort Keepers® locations across the U.S. and other countries - including the four Miami Valley/Greater Dayton area Comfort Keepers offices owned and operated by Kris. Our exceptional caregivers, whom we call Comfort Keepers®, serve clients and their families as trusted partners, providing a wide range of high quality in-home care services tailored to each individual’s specific needs - from companionship and homemaking services, to personal care and technology solutions, to respite care to relieve family caregivers.
Comfort Keepers often partners with other Dayton and Springfield area care providers, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home health care agencies, and hospice care, to provide a comprehensive in-home care solution.
In addition to providing compassionate senior care, Comfort Keepers serves other adults who could benefit from a little extra help around the home: new moms, individuals recovering from surgery, accidents or an extended illness, and others with specific in-home care needs. Our goal at Comfort Keepers is simple: to allow individuals to enjoy the highest possible quality of life in the comfort of home.
Interactive Caregiving™ is based on four primary pillars, which Comfort Keepers leverage to care for, engage, and interact with our clients:
- An active senior mind promotes independence, better mental and physical health, happiness, and a longer life.
- A physically active senior maintains strength and independence, lessening or delaying the effects of aging.
- A well-nourished senior is more energetic, both physically and mentally.
- A safe senior lives in an environment that reduces the likelihood of accidents and promotes timely response when illness or accidents occur.
With our Interactive Caregiving approach, we are able to raise seniors’ quality of life to a much higher level than typical in-home care providers.
Our Client Care Coordinators conduct free in-home assessments and consultations to determine each individual’s specific care needs to tailor the best possible plan of care. Call us today to schedule an appointment. Comfort Keepers is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - whenever you need assistance.

Stop Senior Hunger
During May, Older American’s Month, Comfort Keepers® in Clark, Champaign, Greene, Miami, Shelby, Darke, Preble and Logan Counties asked the community to make donations to the STOP Senior Hunger food drive to help local seniors and raise awareness for this growing epidemic that impacts millions of older Americans. All food was collected between May 7th - 25th and will stay in the local communities. All non-perishable food items collected during the month of May will be given out to seniors in need in June.
In response to a growing need for awareness about senior hunger, the Comfort Keepers system has launched a nationwide campaign called 'Feed Seniors Now' to create awareness for the importance of a healthy diet for those 65 and over. The senior nutrition campaign aims diet and nutrition information, encouragement and necessities.
Comfort Keepers engaged local businesses and organizations to partner together to show support for seniors needing extra assistance to access food. With the help of our local partnerships, volunteers and community donations Comfort Keepers collected over 5000 pounds of food. To learn more how you or your organization can join the STOP Senior Hunger initiative in 2013 contact Lisa at 937-299-5555.
