Comfort of Home Healthcare is uniquely qualified in the field of in home care because of the personal experiences of its owners.

Here is their story:
Jason Douglas, Co-Owner
After graduating from Missouri Western State University, Jason worked for a variety of non-profit organizations, in addition to home care agencies.
Shortly after Missouri Western, Jason’s father fought a hard battle with cancer. With the help of family and Hospice, he was able to live out his final days in the comfort of his own home.
Several years later Jason’s father-in-law became ill and needed in home care 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The family found it very difficult and
frustrating to find quality help in order to
keep him at home. The frustration of this
experience was the foundation behind
wanting to start an in home care agency
that did things differently.
Once Jason’s father-in-law passed away,
he and his wife moved his mother-in-law
into their home so that they could better
take care of her. Through the wonderful
caregiving from his wife, family and
Comfort of Home Healthcare, she was
able to live her final days in the loving
environment of their home with people
who love and care for her the most.
Through many trials and various
experiences, the passion to help people
stay in their own home runs deep and is in the hearts of his entire family.
Tad Ulmer, Co-Owner
Tad brings a different perspective to Comfort of Home Healthcare, because he has needed 24 hour care 7 days a week for his son in his own home.
Sixteen years ago Tad received a phone
call every parent hasnightmares over,
“Come to the hospital, your 15 year old son
was in an automobile accident.” After
rushing to the hospital he wasinformed that
his son was unresponsive and in intensive
care. Once stable,they informed Tad that
his son had suffered severe head trauma
and they didn’t know if he was going to
make it out of the hospital. Tad’s son
eventually stabilized and was somewhat
responsive tothe environment around him,
although it quickly became clear thathe
had sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury and
was going toneedpersonal care for the rest
of his life.
Eventually they moved him from the hospital into an institution to take care of his needs. He spent five years in there, until Tad foundout that there are programs out there that would allow him to take is son home with 24 hour care. After a year fighting to bring him home, and remodeling his home to make it wheelchair accessible, his son came home and has been there ever since. Although home, the transition was not as easy as it sounds. Tad still needed to rely on other agencies to provide the care. After trying several agencies out, it became clear that he was going to have to do something about it himself. Thus, another part of the foundation of Comfort of Home Healthcare was established.
Tad brings a high level of commitment to Comfort of Home Healthcare and cares for each and every client as if it were his own.
