Vaccination Success: Protecting Residents, Employees, and Our Community

In 2021, long-term care and healthcare-related organizations have faced unique challenges in keeping residents, staff, and families safe during the pandemic. As we continue to confront the dangers of COVID-19 and emerging variants, ComfortCare Homes is committed to doing all we can to keep each other safe.

“We believe safety and wellness begin with prevention,” says Micala Gingrich Gaylord, Vice President of Operations. “Nationally, healthcare workers are mandated to receive the COVID vaccine. We’re proud to report that in only three months’ time 99% of our total staff are now fully vaccinated.”

President Doug Stark says that because ComfortCare Homes is a family-operated business, it’s been important to operate with compassion toward everyone during this difficult time. “We met and visited with each employee to discuss questions and concerns,” he says. “And, because we believe this is the right thing to do, we provided substantial bonuses for employees who chose to be vaccinated.” 

Stark says the spirit of teamwork demonstrates the commitment caregivers have toward residents. “We’re all in this together, and as we move into 2022, we’re continuing to keep the health and wellness of our residents our first priority.”

ComfortCare Homes is dedicated to providing the highest level of personal care for those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. For information about open job positions or questions about care for your loved one, please call (316) 685-3322.
