Comfort Keepers serving Delaware County PA and communities in Montgomery County PA, Chester County and Philadelphia currently has offices in Springfield, PA and in King of Prussia, PA. The owners, Clark and Sallie Bongaardt are Springfield, PA natives. Born and breed in Delaware County, Clark served as an attorney in Media, PA for over 25 years while Sallie worked as a paralegal for another legal firm.
After the experience of taking care of Sallie’s aging parents several years ago, they saw a need for quality in-home services. They purchased their Comfort Keepers franchise and Clark left his law practice to work as the first employee in the Comfort Keepers office. A year later Sallie joined him in their mission to provide quality in-home services to anyone over the age of 18 who is sick, disabled or elderly.
Over the last few years, the office has served many clients including Delaware County seniors that receive care from the County Offices of Services for the Aging (COSA), Montgomery County (MCAAS), veterans and the general public. Many families have written to express their thanks for all that Comfort Keepers did for them including the support provided to stressed family members who without the help would have had to miss work, quit jobs or change their entire lifestyle to take care of a loved one.
