Our compassionate caregivers are ready to assist you and your loved one

Every member of our Comfort Keepers team is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care providers, and only those individuals 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 people apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others. 

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

Chris & Erin Couchell


Erin, a lifelong Upstate resident and Converse College graduate, opened Comfort Keepers Spartanburg in 2006 after seeing firsthand the need for and value in keeping Seniors in their own homes. As the business grew, Erin’s husband Chris—a fellow Upstate native, graduate of Clemson’s Mechanical Engineering program, and MBA—became more and more involved. In 2015, Chris joined Comfort Keepers full-time, and the Couchells knew the time was right to add the Greenville office to their team. Both the Spartanburg and Greenville Comfort Keepers offices have earned a reputation for providing excellent care to Upstate residents. When Erin and Chris are not at Comfort Keepers, they are spending time with their three energetic daughters.
