Comfort Keepers lends a helping hand to busy families
As the baby boomer generation pushes into retirement, the need for long term care has become more critical each year.

And Ian and Michele Webber wanted to help local families who need extra assistance caring for a parent or loved one, which is why they decided to open a Comfort Keepers franchise in 2004.
