Comfort Keepers honored for offering exceptional care
Comfort Keepers of Florence was recently chosen as one of 20 recipients of the company’s Operational Excellence Award for 2020.
The award recognizes those in the Comfort Keepers family that have met a very high bar for operational excellence.
“These offices have impacted their communities through exceptional care provided to their clients, helping them maintain independence and realizing joy in everyday moments,” stated company officials.
David and Julie Coker operate the Florence franchise.
Inspired by demands on his family, David recognized the need for Comfort Keepers in Florence and brought the franchise here 11 years ago.
“Florence has been great to us, and we have serviced thousands of clients in the Pee Dee area,” he said. When David’s grandmother suffered a stroke in the spring of 2003, his mother and her sister were constantly running back and forth to assist her. They needed a break.
After doing some research on Comfort Keepers and meeting with them in Ohio, David brought that service to the Pee Dee.
“It has been a great experience, providing quality care for so many seniors and others throughout the Pee Dee area,” said David. “This is one of the few businesses I know of where you are fortunate enough to get thank you cards from your clients.
” Comfort Keepers now has 600 plus franchise offices nationwide. The local office handles Florence, Sumter and the Columbia markets. Florence is always one of the top 20 offices in the network.
“By providing the right mix of in-home senior care services, we are able to help your loved ones maintain independence while enhancing their quality of life,” said David.
