Celebrating excellence in home care.

Home Support Workers are the lifeblood of Comfort Keepers. It is incredibly important to us that our carers receive the recognition, appreciation, and praise they deserve. They carry out tireless and crucial work in our communities.

Our Home Support Workers are heroes in the community. Because of this, we are passionate about recognising and valuing their efforts.

Each year we recognise our Home Support Workers for their work and commitment to providing care in our communities. Firstly, in the run-up, nominees like Richard Casey are elected and voted by their peers. Then, we announce the Comfort Keepers Ireland “Carer of the Year” and “Employee of the Year” Awards on the night of our wonderful employee awards ceremony

2019 Awards

The Comfort Keepers Stars Awards 2019 highlighted the excellence of our homecare providers nationwide.

Our stars came from all over the country to eat, drink, and be merry. Not forgetting to crown a few winners along the way.

Furthermore, 2019 was our 9th annual awards. The always entertaining Daithí O’Sé hosted on the night. It was a great opportunity to come together and review the year. We got to celebrate our fantastic achievements. Most importantly, however, we recognise those who go above and beyond on a daily basis.

We can’t wait for the next one!
