PCA, Commissioner of Oaths
Tracy, originally from the beautiful fishing town of Port De Grave, saw a need to assist families with their needs as they were making the transition from independence to home support thus leading to the opening of Coombs Compassionate Home Care Agency on October 1, 2012.
Tracy has many certificates such as grade 12, 1st Aid/CPR, Mental Health First Aid, Marine First Aid, Computerized Accounting, Home Support/Personal Care Assistant, Word Processing and Basic Bookkeeping.
Tracy's caring and compassionate manner stems from being raised with a solid background of love and respect, which put together with her education and training in a Personal Care Attendant course along with her experience in both community and hospital settings, fueled her passion to open her own agency. Encouraged by her passion to share her training and knowledge with others, Tracy researched extensively to ensure that when she opened her doors to the community, she was ready for the difficult but satisfying task ahead.
The business started in the basement of Tracy's home with an assistant in the office in Upper Island Cove. The company quickly outgrew this office and a new location opened in Bay Roberts.
Due to the increase in clientele, there was a need to provide services in the St. John's and surrounding area so Tracy took the initiative to open an office in Conception Bay South, which services the C.B.S. and surrounding areas, an office in Carbonear which services Harbour Grace to Old Perlican, as well as Trinity Bay to Whitbourne and recently, a new office was also opened in Mount Pearl servicing St. John's and surrounding areas.
The company became trademarked and incorporated in July 2015 under the name Coombs Compassionate Home Care Agency Inc.®™
