Learn more about Comfort Keepers home health services in South Bay
Comfort Keepers South Bay opened its doors in Torrance in 2002 when Richard Berryman, with his background in sales and marketing, wanted to get out of the corporate world and run his own business again. He looked at various types of franchises and hit upon a young franchise working with elderly people which really peaked his interest. He talked it over with his cousin, Mary Granger, an RN with her Master’s degree in Gerontology and she became very interested. This was what she had studied gerontology for. They became partners, went to training specifically about Comfort Keepers and opened their first territory.
Mary had worked for many years in nursing administration managing caregivers in hospital settings, one being Torrance Memorial Medical Center.
Richard, owning his own small business prior to his extensive sales and corporate management experience, brought a varied mix of skills to this new home health services business.
By 2005 they expanded their official territory to a second one in the Beach Cities up to El Segundo. In 2006 they bought their third territory in the other direction encompassing Palos Verdes and San Pedro. Now, their territories cover the whole South Bay. They have affiliations with Beach Cities Health District and they work with most of the long term care insurance companies.
Mary gets especially involved with complicated cases or with seniors that don’t have family close by. She coordinates their care and their medication regimen, keeps family informed, sometimes going to Doctor’s appointments with them, or coordinating care with the doctor’s office, Home Health Agency, or Hospice.
Richard is heavily involved with the various Chambers. He has been on the Board of Retired Senior Volunteers Program (RSVP) for several years. In our office Richard is involved in Keep-Safe Coalition, a grassroots, non-profit corporation that combines community, law enforcement, financial institutions and social service agencies in fighting financial abuse of seniors. The goal, since its inception in 2002, has been to keep seniors safe from fraud and abuse by educating and publicizing information on what’s happening in the South Bay area.
In 2008, Comfort Keepers South Bay home health services moved to expanded office space in Lomita, in the Hazard Financial Building, directly across the street from the Lomita Post Office on Narbonne. We are licensed with the California Department of Social Services as a Home Care Organization.
Currently in the home health services office there are three assistants:
Our Comfort Keepers, as we call our caregivers, are experienced in homemaker services and/or personal care. They are all registered with the State as Home Care Aides. Some have additional certifications and/or experience. They are various ages and ethnicity, and they love what they do.
