Chester In-Home Care Services
Chester is a large suburban town located in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. As of 2010, it was home to 34,000 people, and it is known as the oldest city in Pennsylvania. Chester is located on the western bank of the Delaware River in between the cities of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Wilmington, Delaware.
Originally settled in 1644 as “Upland” by the Swedish, Chester was incorporated in 1682. William Penn, known as the founder of Pennsylvania, acquired Chester as a safe haven for Quakers. Chester was able to experience rapid growth over the next few hundred years due to its wealthy manufacturing community that dabbled in metals, locomotives, shipbuilding, and textiles. Chester helped a play role in the American Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and World War II!

Who We Are, and How We Can Help
We know it can be hard to leave a home you've lived in for many years and enter an assisted living facility or retirement community. Understandably, seniors can be reluctant to leave their homes even if they do not have the physical capacity to properly maintain their home themselves. This is where Comfort Keepers comes in. We bring ourselves directly to you and help your loved one stay in their home while still providing excellent senior care.
Another thing that Comfort Keepers understands is that while your loved one grows older, their activity levels tend to decrease. We believe that social interaction and activities are key to staying healthy as you age. Multiple, major studies have found that there are many benefits of staying active as you age. Because of this, we offer an interactive caregiving approach. With this approach, our caregivers are able to provide your loved one with a healthy life, all while taking advantage of everything that the town of Chester has to offer.

Senior Caregiving Services
Being able to confide in Comfort Keepers to take care of my elderly father was such a blessings because he needed professional help that I could no longer provide to him.
