About Us

The Webster Comfort Care Home management team is a group of citizens who believe in the dignity and value of every person, and who care about our community. United in our desire to provide hospice-based care, our role is a privileged one. We believe in individualized care to accommodate the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the home's residents. We also wish to embrace each resident's family and friends with love and support that would continue throughout the grieving process. Partnering with local hospice agencies, we provide complete and comprehensive around-the-clock care.

Our Staff

Julianne moved to Webster, from Phoenix, AZ, in 2002 for her husband's job. She worked as a Social Worker at The Villa of Hope before moving to Puyallup, WA in 2006.

Ruth has worked as a Volunteer Coordinator for over 25 years, and is thrilled to be part of the Webster Comfort Care Home Team.  Ruth grew up in Rochester and currently lives in Brighton with her husband, Peter. She has 3 grown sons, 2 step-children and 2 grandsons. In addition to spending time with family and friends, Ruth is an obsessive gardener and also enjoys baking, cooking, biking, walking, eating and reading - not necessarily in that order!

Ruth feels the key to running a successful Volunteer Program is to truly utilize the volunteer staff, and here at Webster Comfort Care Home, we are truly dependent on our Volunteers. Won't you consider joining our Team?!
