What makes Fairfield great are the people. You’ll find many residents have decided to settle here after being raised here themselves. Generations of families live all around town. Families raising families. One could say, the younger generations are the heart of this town, while the older generations here are the soul.

Neil Anand is one of those people. After a childhood growing up in Fairfield, he eventually decided to lay down roots here both personally and professionally. Not only does he live here, he is the owner/operator of ComForCare Home Care, whose headquarters are in town. “I feel fortunate to own a business in a town I love”, says Neil. He acknowledges how much the town has grown since he was a kid, noting that between the beach, the food, and the art and music scenes, there is something here for everyone. “If there is a new restaurant or venue in town, I will be there to check it out, and probably become a regular.” Neil is also an active member of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce and supports the Bigelow Senior Center.

The son of physicians, Neil saw at a young age the impact caring for people had on entire families. “I was able to see firsthand how important it is to help others in need. It’s a powerful lesson for everyone, especially a young kid.” After a successful career in marketing, Neil decided it was time to combine his entrepreneurial mind with his healthcare DNA. He quickly recognized that with the growing aging population, senior care is an important, fast growing industry. ComForCare is a premier provider of in-home care, helping older adults live independently in their own homes and to continue to do all the things they love. One could say, the heart of ComForCare is taking care of the soul of the town. “We primarily assist the elderly, who need help at home with activities of daily living (ADLs), including assistance with personal care, meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, transportation to appointments, and many other need-based caregiving options. We are committed to helping people live a fulfilling life and also offer special programs for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.” Neil explains.

Because of ComForCare’s compassionate high-touch approach, clients can expect Neil to be involved in all aspects of each individual’s care plan. He collaborates with families and medical professionals to develop the highest level of personalized care, leaving no detail overlooked. One such detail, for example, unforeseen fall risks within the home are carefully assessed during the initial on-boarding process, an element often not addressed with other care management companies. By also incorporating meaningful activities into each plan, ComForCare prioritizes preserving dignity and quality of life.

The consistent gratitude ComForCare Home Care receives is a reflection of what Neil
considers the biggest reward, making a difference in the lives of his clients and their families. He often hears of how previous moods and struggles have evolved to happiness and contentment. “We are here for our community so that they can live their best life possible.”
Heart and Soul.
