The company, established in 2005, has been praised by the autonomous accreditation body’s adjudication panel for meeting standards of excellence in the areas of trust, commitment, performance and customer-centricity.

The All-Star accreditation also ensures the company’s continued inclusion in The AIBF Register of Irish Business Excellence (TRIBE).

Comfort Keepers delivers care services for thousands of clients in need across the country, with their services organised from nine regional branches including Tullamore.

Its mission is to provide people with the highest quality of life that is achievable, treating each client with the respect and dignity they deserve.

The Comfort Keepers management team collectively has over 100 years’ experience working in the healthcare industry.

The AIBF SuperTeam accreditation is a prestigious recognition of their vast workforce of dedicated Client Service Managers, Care Co-Ordinators and Carers, who are all focused on providing top quality homecare.

Pamela Kerrigan, Branch Manager at Comfort Keepers Tullamore said:

“We are delighted to achieve All Ireland Business Foundation SuperTeam 2023 accreditation for demonstrating exceptional teamwork. This is an outstanding achievement for our team; it recognises their unwavering hard work and dedication in providing quality home care services to all our Midlands clients, as well as our ongoing commitment to supporting our team in every way we can so they can provide the best care possible.”

Collette Gleeson, Managing Director at Comfort Keepers Ireland said:

“Our teams all across the Midlands are made up of amazing individuals providing outstanding care and support to the most vulnerable in our local communities and their families. Every day they help people to stay safe and happy at home for as long as possible.”

Speaking at the announcement, Deputy Chair of the Adjudication Board, Kieran Ring, said:

“This certificate verifies that Comfort Keepers has been named AIBF SuperTeam 2023. When it comes to business, teamwork is the cornerstone on which a business is built, and this accreditation recognises and champions that.” 

“The SuperTeam accreditation recognises the Comfort Keepers team, in which every member plays a fundamental role in delivering success. The Comfort Keepers team is a diverse and supportive group of people working together with a shared belief and value system that delivers business objectives.”

Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation, Kapil Khanna, said the accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.

“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.”

The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.

The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.

Comfort Keepers works closely with the HSE, their clients and their families to deliver quality, person-centred home care services that are designed to keep people happy at home for as long as possible.

Comfort Keepers Tullamore provides over 1,300 hours of care per week to clients across Offaly, Laois, Longford and Westmeath.
