Owner Sherry James opened the Comfort Keepers office in Cape Girardeau, MO after caring for her grandparents. Her grandfather was a veteran, and after he passed away from Alzheimer’s disease she cared for her grandmother. Sherry was busy caring for a family of her own and had she known about the Aid and Attendance Benefit for spouses of Veterans, the role of family caregiver would have been a lot less stressful. It is Sherry’s mission with Comfort Keepers to help people remain in their own homes with excellent one on one at home care assistance. We encourage all veterans to take full advantage of this benefit.
