The number of enquires has grown dramatically in the past year as people see the aging population on the rise and the growing need. Statistics Canada predicts the amount of seniors will increase from 13% in 2006 to 21% in 2026.
Comments Peter Drutz, president of Comfort Keepers Canada, “We are pleased with the increased number of quality enquires for the franchise. The additional points of distribution of the Comfort Keepers brand across Canada will allow us to pursue and put in place national alliances and programs to more fully support different needs at a national level.”
Two such recent alliances include being approved as the official national supplier for the Canadian Institute for the Blind. Comfort Keepers caregivers have received special training for working with the seeing impaired. As well, Comfort Keepers has been approved as the home care vendor for the Blue Cross program. Through Blue Advantage Comfort Keepers provides special discounts to its 8 million members.
