Welcome to our Comfort Keepers blog for Bloomington, Indiana where we hope to share valuable information with you ranging from home health to puppies to cookie recipes!

Why you ask would I share cookie recipes? Well let me tell you- Comfort Keepers is based off the philosophy that people live longer, happier lives if they can stay active in mind, body and spirit, this is part of Interactive Caregiving: the Comfort Keepers approach to senior care. The idea is to keep people active, make/bake cookies, go shopping, create a meal plan or simply having a conversation with someone. Helping someone to maintain quality of life is so important in this day and age, studies have shown the more active the person, the longer, better the life and that is what Comfort Keepers is all about!

I wanted to back up my data so I did a little research on the topic and came across this wonderful study on people as they age. There is a lot of information out there proving the results, a simple search will provide you with the results. I decided to share this study because it was too good not to share!

Let me know your thoughts on that and just in case you were wondering about the cookie recipe, I found this on!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
