Comfort Keepers Elderly Care of Federal Way, WA's Mission
Back in 1998, Kim Sanchez and her parents, Jim and Pam Bianchi, were challenged and struggled as a family in crisis mode, to provide quality care to Pam’s parents. As many Americans dealing with aging parents and their increasing care needs, Pam’s mom had Alzheimer’s and her dad was the main caregiver. Her dad then had a massive stroke, leaving him paralyzed on the left side and unable to speak. The family was thrown into a crisis situation and they didn’t really know what options were out there for them. The family really wanted to honor their parents’ wishes of remaining in their own home, so for a few years, between 7 children and 20 grandchildren, they took shifts providing care in the home. Jim and Pam eventually moved into her parents’ so they could provide elderly care at home for them in their final year.
Jim, Pam and Kim learned quickly the immense responsibility it is to shoulder caring for our seniors. They looked back on their experience and thought to themselves, “if only we had a little extra help in the home, it would have made all the difference in the world.” This journey is what led Kim and Jim to the Comfort Keepers family. After years of wanting to start a business, they discovered Comfort Keepers and started their franchise in April of 2002, caring for seniors for over 13 years in Seattle, Burien, Seatac, Tukwila, Des Moines, Kent, Auburn and Federal Way Washington. In 2008, Jim and Pam retired and moved to Arizona. Kim Sanchez is the owner of the business now and covers the entire South King County region. They have built a solid reputation of providing the highest quality of elderly care to their clients.
This high quality of senior care has resulted in their office being honored as the "Best of Federal Way" for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017 by the Federal Way Mirror for "Adult In-Home Care." For more information on the award, you can read more here.
