Doug’s relationship with his paternal grandmother helped shape his love for the senior population. Working with her as she aged and watching her transition from home to a nursing facility, opened his eyes to the need for in home care. Doug donates his time and resources to many senior events including The Active Aging Collation, the Memories in the Making Alzheimer’s project, member of local Chamber of Commerce and other various community activities.
Ann Harrison, RN
Ann Harrison, a registered nurse, worked in a hospital and in a home health care agency and discovered the unmet needs of seniors who required non-medical assistance that a home health care agency couldn’t provide, as it would often not be covered by insurance. It was difficult for Ann to tell these seniors and their families that her agency couldn’t provide the kinds of assistance they needed to remain in their homes and even more difficult knowing they would have to move into a room in a nursing home and lose 95 percent of their belongings in the process.
So, Ann began researching a way to provide this type of care needed by a growing number of seniors. In doing to, she discovered Comfort Keepers and its effective brand of in-home elder care and helped found her own local Comfort Keepers franchise.
