Welcome to Comfort Keepers of State College, Altoona & Clearfield, PA Home Health Care Services Center
With a strong desire to enrich seniors’ and other individual’s lives by helping them continue living independently in their own homes, David Hellyer and Terri Breindel opened Comfort Keepers of State College, Altoona & Clearfield, PA on April 1, 2004. From this location they serve individuals and their families with non-medical home health care services throughout Centre County. In June of 2006, David and Terri opened a satellite office in nearby Tyrone, to specifically serve the residents of Blair County. They opened the Clearfield, Pennsylvania Comfort Keepers franchise on January 1, 2007. They and their staff provide services that enable senior citizens to continue living independently at home throughout Blair, Cambria, Centre, Clearfield, Indiana and parts of Jefferson County. They also serve other adults who need help at home—for instance, a new mom returning from the hospital with her baby or those recovering from illness, injury or surgery.
The locally owned and operated Comfort Keepers office helps improve the lives of seniors and other adults who just need a little extra help to live safely and independently at home through home health care services. It also provides their families the peace-of-mind knowing their loved ones are living happily at home. Our caregivers—our Comfort Keepers—deliver compassionate, professional care that enables our clients to maintain as high a level of independence and quality of life as possible in the place they are most comfortable—their own home.
We provide a full range of senior care services—companionship, personal care and home safety and technology—that can be tailored to meet the evolving needs of seniors and other adults as they age at home. We’ll work in tandem with outside care organizations to provide a comprehensive care solution, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, palliative care agencies, and hospice.
Our services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and someone is always available to answer your calls. Comfort Keepers services may be arranged anywhere from a few hours a week, to provide family caregivers a respite, to full-time and any amount of service in between—whatever is needed. We offer free in-home assessments to determine your and your loved one’s needs, and we work with you to develop a home care plan. Each person a Comfort Keeper cares for is unique, and so is every care plan.
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 home health care services (we call them Comfort Keepers®.) are carefully selected, screened, and trained to provide professional, compassionate care.
Our Philosophy At The Heart of Our Care Services
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 senior care.
