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.

Kevin and Alyssa Kelly


Since 2007, the Kelly’s have been working in Wilmington, NC to provide the community to help seniors and other adults live independent, quality lives. Prior to Comfort Keepers, Alyssa had worked with seniors in the healthcare industry since graduating from Ithaca College in 1992. Kevin, graduate of Siena College, came from a financial background and has spent most of his early career working on Wall Street.

Alyssa and Kevin are very hands on with their business, with Alyssa involved in the day-to-day operations, while Kevin, who works at Wells Fargo in their Trading division, oversees the operational side. Along with their children, Ryan (12) and Kaitlyn (9), the Kelly’s love the close knit feel of the business, and think of their over 35 employees like an extension of their family.
