Meet Our Comfort Keepers®

Our team is uniquely qualified and ready to help 

Every member of our team is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care providers, and only those who pass this process go on to complete training to deliver our special brand of home care and become Comfort Keepers®. What truly sets our people apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others. 

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.

Luke Ries

General Manager

Hi! I’m Luke Ries, the General Manager for Comfort Keepers® of Eastern Wisconsin. I’m a Wisconsin native, born and raised, and I’m delighted to serve the communities where I grew up. I have been in the health industry for over 19 years. The last several years were optical care.  For me, there’s no greater reward than serving others. Each day I’m humbled by the kindness and professionalism our team brings to helping seniors lead happy, safe, independent lives.

I am a Comfort Keeper®!
