As the needs of seniors and the disabled continue to grow globally, a new company, RiseMark, has been created to align several different organizations that offer a variety of valuable care services to people across the U.S. and around the globe.
Three organizations, RAH, Inc., RAH, International, and IKOR- are wholly owned subsidiaries of Risemark (Brands). By combining the Franchisor organizations under the RiseMark umbrella, these brands will be able to leverage tremendous synergies and create additional opportunities for delivering the utmost value to senior clients and the disabled on a global basis.

We started working with Right at Home about a month ago to provide services for my mother who has Alzheimer's and to provide support to my father (her primary caregiver) six days a week. So far we have had an excellent experience. The caregivers are supportive, caring people and have given my Dad a much deserved break as well as providing knowledgeable care for my Mom. I have also been impressed with the structures and processes put in place to insure that we get consistent, reliable care. Our relationship with Right at Home is still new but we couldn't be happier.
