Meet Our Comfort Keepers®

Our team is uniquely qualified and ready to help 

Every member of our team is professional and well trained.

All Comfort Keepers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. They are bonded, insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

Donna Saliba

Administrative Assistant

Donna started working for Comfort Keepers in 2007, making her the second most senior employee in the company. While she started in the office, her main focus was to be a caregiver. She persued a career as a caregiver until 2017, when she was trasitioned back to the office. She still continues to work with clients when available. She says she is glad to be here amongst friends and seeing our caregivers stop into the office. 

Donna says, "Funny story: I was in second grade when I wrote that I wanted to help the very old and senior citizens who are sick or hurt! I guess the calling was always there!"

Although she mainly works out of the Beachwood office, Donna assists the Westlake office with administrative responsibilities as well.
