Cary and Wendy Rotter
We launched Comfort Keepers in the greater Memphis and northwest Mississippi area in 2001 with a vision to be the best senior care provider anywhere and to be an extension of the families we are privileged to serve. Our commitment is to hire and retain the best caregivers in the market and to place the best caregivers possible on every assignment. Most staffing companies cut corners when it comes to hiring and placing workers. At Comfort Keepers we never make this mistake. We have built a wonderful reputation by honoring the trust our healthcare colleagues and families place in us. In fact, they routinely refer us to their patients and residents and use our services for their own family members.
In our first decade of business, we lost three of our parents. We used Comfort Keepers caregivers extensively and know first-hand what a tremendous difference our services can make for families. We have served thousands of families in the Mid-South with distinction. We are proud of this success but sensitive to the fact that our business must be earned every day. Importantly, we feel obligated to be immersed in our industry and to give back to our community. We serve on multiple boards that promote senior care, advocacy, social services to the needy, and assistance at multiple levels locally and nationally.
Cary is a native Memphian with a B.S. degree from the University of Memphis and has significant experience in staffing and business management, including working for a Fortune 250 corporation. He has a unique perspective and significant insights on senior care, has authored multiple published articles on senior care and its implications for families and businesses, and is frequently invited as a speaker.
