ComForCare of Hendersonville, TN Employee Recognized as 2019 Caregiver of the Year

DETROIT, December 18, 2019 -- ComForCare Home Care, a franchised provider of in-home caregiving services, announced their Caregiver of the Year at the company's national conference. Beth Trivett, a ComForCare caregiver in Hendersonville, TN,  was awarded the 2019 Caregiver of the Year from over 125 nominations. 

"Beth represents the gold standard of our ComForCare values," said Mike Sluder, franchise owner of ComForCare in Hendersonville — a suburb of Nashville. "She is attentive, caring, efficient and confident in her abilities, which all make her a superior caregiver. The families she cares for trust her unconditionally. There is no value you can put on her heart and compassion for others."

Through this award, Beth was recognized for her years of extraordinary commitment, hard work and dedication. She consistently goes above and beyond for her clients, while also juggling caring for her own family at home. She is particularly sensitive to caring for clients at the end of their life and supporting the family during that difficult time.

"Caregivers are the heart of the ComForCare franchise system across the U.S. and Canada," said Mark Armstrong, founder and president of ComForCare and At Your Side Franchise Systems. "And it's stories like this one that remind us why caregivers are so important. We are honored to have Beth as a part of our ComForCare team and recognize the impact she has had on so many lives."

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people 65 and older is expected to increase to 55 million in 2020, and demand for businesses like ComForCare will continue to increase as people prefer to age in place.

Q&A with Lori Vrcan, Franchisee of CarePatrol (Franchise Chatter)

Lori Vrcan, Franchisee of Charlotte, South Carolina, previously worked with a national senior living community as a sales and marketing manager. In that position, she was most impressed with her interactions with CarePatrol. Each client referred was pre-qualified and a good fit for the senior living community in terms of needs, budget and personal interests. After she and her husband Todd did further research, they decided not only would buying a CarePatrol franchise be a great investment, but it was a meaningful change and the opportunity to work together and help seniors.
