TRACY COOMBS,
PCA, Commissioner of Oaths
Owner/operator


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 which currently staffs 4 in-house employees in a newly opened, beautifully built office in Upper Island Cove.  The company presently employs over 70 home care workers in our three locations.  

As time went by, there was a need for services in the St. John's and surrounding area so Tracy took the iniative to open an office in Conception Bay South, which services the C.B.S., St. John's, and surrounding areas.  Recently, a new office was also opened in Mount Pearl.

The company became trademarked and incorporated in July 2015 under the name Coombs Compassionate Home Care Agency Inc.®™

With home care still very much the focus of the business, the opportunity to participate with Child, Youth and Family Services, providing families in transition with supervised access workers during visits or respite for families became available with re-unification of the family being the future goal.  We now offer these services in St. John's and surrounding areas, Conception Bay South and Conception Bay North.

Tracy and her team always encourage workers to assist their clients in keeping their dignity and independence, while still offering assistance with the daily activities of living.

CCHA's home support/supervised access workers must pass a strict security clearance check, have resume with 3 references, hold a valid first aid/CPR certificate and be bondable. The company also offers in-house training, provided through a manual which Tracy authored.

Tracy is also on the Board of Directors for the Newfoundland and Labrador Association for Community Living.

At Coombs Compassionate Home Care Agency Inc.®™, we believe that:

                 “Wherever Home Is.....
                            It's The Best Place To Be”........
