Meet Our Comfort Keepers® Senior Caregivers

Our team of Comfort Keepers senior caregivers is uniquely qualified and ready to help

Every member of our Comfort Keepers team of senior caregivers is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care providers, and only those who pass this process go on to complete training to deliver our special brand of home care and become Comfort Keepers® senior caregivers. What truly sets our people apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others.

All Comfort Keepers senior caregivers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. They are bonded, insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

Dr. Wayland Marks

Geriatric Physician

I’m Wayland Marks, MD, and I have over forty years of experience in geriatrics and internal medicine. Comfort Keepers has given me the opportunity to continue to help frail, older individuals and to be involved in training caregivers to help this population. I have a special interest in helping individuals with dementia, like Alzheimer’s disease, and assisting family members and caregivers who take care of them.

Louise Desilets

Registered Nurse, Personal Care Manager

I am Louise Desilets. I have been a certified Home Health & Hospice nurse for over thirty seven years. My role at Comfort Keepers is to devise the Plan of Care to help our clients obtain the best customized care, so they can continue to live in their own home. I also work with fellow team members to ensure we are providing a nurturing experience to our clients, while supporting our Comfort Keepers in continuing their education. I am married with four children, and I enjoy writing, walking, biking and volunteering time in my church and with local community charities.

Denise Develin

Client Care Manager

I am Denise Nielsen, and I have been a Comfort Keeper since 2014. I came to Comfort Keepers through a current employee, but I had been familiar with the company as they provided care for my late future mother-in-law. Comfort Keepers made such a difference in mine and my fiance´’s life with their wonderful care and attentiveness. My mother-in-law’s last days of life were better because of Comfort Keepers, so I knew I had to be part of such a great team. I love what I do because I feel like I make a difference helping so many seniors in our area get the care they need and deserve. I love being a Comfort Keeper!

I was very fortunate to live overseas and travel all over Europe growing up. Bob and I have three children, two daughters and a son and six amazing grandchildren. I am a die-hard Dallas Cowboy fan.
