Comfort Keepers Stars Awards 2019

Celebrating excellence in homecare and support.

The Comfort Keepers Stars Awards 2019 highlight the excellence of our Comfort Keepers teams around the country.

It certainly was a night of stars on Friday night in Killashee! They came from all over the country to eat, drink and be merry and to crown a few stars along the way.

Hosted by the ever-entertaining Daithi O’Se, this is our 9th Annual awards and it’s a great opportunity to come together, review the year, celebrate our achievements and recognise those who go above and beyond on a daily basis.
