Owner Comfort Keepers Wichita
Doug and his family have been business and civic leaders in the Wichita community for decades. His parent’s, Charles and Mary Lou Stark, started ComfortCare Homes® in 1993 after providing care for Doug’s grandparents, both afflicted with dementia through the 80’s. What started out as a personal cause became a mission to serve others faced with the same caregiving challenges.
Doug graduated from Heights High School and attended The University of Kansas. After a 10 year stint in the wholesale concession supply business, he went on to become the original Little Caesar’s franchisee, building 7 stores in Wichita starting in 1988 and sold the franchise in 1993. He moved on to become the President of ComfortCare Homes® and carry on the family business.
In 2007, Doug became co-owner in Comfort Keepers, a private duty, home care franchise, assisting the frail and elderly with additional care in their homes. Like ComfortCare Homes®, Doug forged ahead with new levels of care, specializing in Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. In 2016 Doug became the sole owner of the Wichita franchise.
“I am a Comfort Keeper because I wanted to create a Premier company culture that would attract CareGivers with purpose and heart.”
Doug and his wife, Kathi, have been married 40-some years. Both are native Wichitans. They have lived and served the community in many capacities. They have 3 daughters and one son.
"I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Social Work in 1990. My 28-year journey in the healthcare field includes a variety of settings such as acute care hospitals, rehabilitation hospitals as well as skilled nursing facilities and assisted living.
For the largest part of my career, I acquired my experience from working in the home healthcare, hospice and private duty in home care industries.
The knowledge that I acquired from practicing social work gave me tremendous resources/tools to assist my transition into Operations & Business Development.
I came to Comfort Keepers because I saw an opportunity to create uniquely better experiences for our clients as well as our caregivers. It has been extremely rewarding and such a joy to watch the lives of our clients and caregivers flourish because of these experiences."
Client Care Coordinator
"I have been a CNA for 18 years and worked in the long-term care industry for most of that time. Upon being hired at Comfort Keepers, I started as a caregiver in the field.
Since then I was promoted to work inside the office as a Scheduler and now as a Client Care Coordinator. The fact that management saw me with qualities that warranted being promoted (which I never thought was possible) means they care about their employees just as much as they care about their clients.
I came to Comfort Keepers because I love what they stand for. This company has been a true blessing to me."
Scheduler/ Client Care Coordinator
Kayleigh Rosson has been with Comfort Keepers since December of 2017 as the Scheduler / Client Care Coordinator.
She has previous experience working in Home Care as a CNA and as a Branch Manager of another local home care agency. She handled everything from scheduling to invoicing as well as Human Resources and auditing.
She would like to Home Care to be her career field for a very long time.
"I chose to come to Comfort Keepers because of the joyful atmosphere and the opportunity to learn and grow in the career field that I desire. It has been an amazing experience to work with such amazing people who have taught me so much already."
"I chose to work for Comfort Keepers because I love to help people. My background is based in customer service. Working in retail and the food industry drove me to seek out something more worthwhile in my career.
I strive to put my best foot forward in assisting anyone that calls or stops by our office. The best reward is seeing the growth of our clients and the joy they experience."
