Meet Our Comfort Keepers Home Care Givers

Our team of Comfort Keepers home care givers is uniquely qualified and ready to help 

Every member of our Greenville, SC team of Comfort Keepers home care givers is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best home care givers, 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 in Greenville, SC pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education to become the best possible home care givers. They are bonded, insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

Chris & Erin Couchell


Erin, a lifelong Upstate resident and Converse College graduate, opened Comfort Keepers Spartanburg in 2006 after seeing firsthand the need for and value in keeping Seniors in their own homes. As the business grew, Erin’s husband Chris—a fellow Upstate native, graduate of Clemson’s Mechanical Engineering program, and MBA—became more and more involved.

In 2015, Chris joined Comfort Keepers full-time, and the Couchells knew the time was right to add the Greenville office to their team. Like the Spartanburg office, the Comfort Keepers Greenville has earned a reputation for providing excellent care to residents of Greenville, Pickens, and Oconee counties.

When Erin and Chris are not at Comfort Keepers, they are spending time with their three energetic daughters.
