Major expansion for Comfort Keepers
Irish home care organisation Comfort Keepers has announced details of a major expansion in Cork City and North Cork along with further recruitment in the region.
The company is set to open a new office in to cater for the North Cork region in the coming months which will be headed up by new Client Care Manager Anne O’Donoghue.
Anne, who hails from Mitchelstown, is a dual qualified General and Sick Children’s Nurse and has experience in many areas of nursing including care of the elderly, sick children, intellectual disabilities and also community nursing. She has previously held the position of Home Help Organiser with the Health Service Executive.
“I’m looking forward to this very exciting and challenging role with Comfort Keepers,” said Anne.
“I firmly that homecare is the way forward for the care of the elderly in Ireland as most people want to remain in their own homes for as long as possible. Comfort Keepers can make this happen by providing a very high standard of homecare by carefully selected trained carers.”
In addition to the new office, Comfort Keepers is also expanding its Cork City offices with a move to a larger premises in the Melbourne Business Park on the Model Farm Road.
In the past year, Comfort Keepers has doubled its size in Cork and currently employs over 100 people, with 50 more carers to be recruited over the coming months. Following its success in the recent HSE tender application for home care services, the company is now the number one ranked home care provider for enhanced home care packages by the HSE.
“This is great news for the Comfort Keepers team and our clients in the Cork region,” said Sue Cogan, Sales and Marketing Manager in Comfort Keepers.
“The move to the bigger premises in the Melbourne Business Park will help us to expand our service offering and give the team some more badly needed office space. Our neighbours Signarama in the business park have been a huge help in getting our branding organised and we’re delighted with the new premises.”
