Every caregiver on our Comfort Keepers team in Lakeland, FL team is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care providers and caregivers, and only those who pass this process go on to complete training to deliver our special brand of home care and become Comfort Keepers. What truly sets our Comfort Keepers apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others.
All Comfort Keepers 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.
For over 14 years, Tracy Kelley has been inspiring others to take action on what some might call the most noblest of pursuits— providing respite care for our senior loved ones.
The realization of this passion for serving others, however, can be traced back over 27 years ago, while attending Florida Southern College for her Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology. It was during her education and her many years of serving customers of all ages in the insurance industry that she found her passion for people, but wanted to do something more.
As a mother of three, she was seeking to fulfill that passion while maintaining a flexible schedule for her children. When Tracy saw a growing need for elder care in Polk County, she realized that her passion for people would be best put to work by helping seniors maintain independence and quality of life in their homes. Owning and operating a home care service that offered a range of caregiving levels—from respite care and palliative care to dementia care and end of life care—would give her the opportunity to give something back.
Never losing sight of that vision, in 2002 Tracy opened Polk County’s first Comfort Keepers to provide unparalleled senior home care to residents of Lakeland, Winter Haven, Sebring, and the surrounding Central Florida area.
Tracy sets the high standard for everyone at Comfort Keepers by demonstrating that every aspect of the company must be grounded in love for the clients. It’s at the heart of everything a Comfort Keeper caregiver does for the client.
In her spare time, Tracy enjoys spending time with her family and supporting worthy causes that help enhance the quality of life for local senior residents. In Tracy’s own words, “We get to help the hands that built America.”
