"We are truly honored to receive this award," Joanie Yeomans said. "Comfort Keepers is an extension of us personally and reflects those experiences with friends from church. In many cases, a Comfort Keeper becomes like a member of the client's family; there is often a genuine emotional attachment. It's that sincere caring that we are all about."
