Paul Farrow sworn in as county executive 'Waukesha County will be the EPICENTER for economic growth' in region Barbara Eash antiques column 5A Doris loves her Menomonee Falls apartment where she lives independently and is close to her daughter Janet. Janet had suggested Comfort Keepers to Doris so she could get help to allow her to remain at home, as she struggles with arthritis. Doris has difficulty hearing so she communicates with the Comfort Keepers office staff via email. According to Doris, her caregiver Ruby, "is like an adopted daughter to me. She makes me a special breakfast and keeps my apartment clean." According to Shar Meller, owner of a Comfort Keepers franchise, this match has turned out very well. Doris and Ruby have similar personalities, are members of the same church and they grew up in close proximity in the same neighborhood. Shar recently visited the two and said they were laughing and hugging and enjoying each others company. A CALLING Shar had watched her own dad and mom fight to remain in the comfort of their home. She saw firsthand the determination and stress – both mental and physical – on her mom as the main caregiver for her dad in honoring his wish to die at home. Shar said she had an inspiration or a calling from God to dedicate her life to helping seniors remain independent with the love and dignity they deserve. Comfort Keepers Provides Peace of Mind!
