How Our Custom In-Home Care Works
The Right at Home in-home care services difference is found in our custom care process. In very little time, we're able to assess and understand your loved one's unique situation and recommend a custom in-home care plan for their particular needs. This gets them the care they need as soon as they need it.
From the moment you call your local Right at Home office, we begin considering you and your loved one's specific needs. On the initial call, we ask questions to form a basic needs assessment.
After the call, we set up an in-home visit with you and the rest of your family – including the family member who may ultimately benefit from our in-home care. This visit allows us to gather even more information, answer questions and let you understand how Right at Home can help.
With Right at Home you will always know what services are being provided to your loved one. After our initial meeting, we develop a Custom Care Plan. This plan is tailored to your loved one's specific needs.
We make detailed recommendations on exactly what kind of services we feel would benefit them. We then arrange a follow-up meeting with you to go over the Custom Care Plan line by line and modify it as you see fit.
Once you approve the Custom Care Plan, we begin our search for the most appropriate caregiver to implement care. Our system of matching caregivers to clients takes numerous factors into consideration: care services needed, your loved one's interests and the personalities of both your loved one and the caregiver.

By looking at the whole situation, we're better able to provide your loved one with the best caregiver possible. Of course, if there are ever any concerns about a specific caregiver, we can search for and provide a replacement in very little time.
Our caregivers keep extensive notes about the care they provide. Those notes are kept at your loved one's home and are available at any time. Our billing system also provides a detailed description of services and care, so you never receive an invoice that doesn't include a line-item cost of care. And our franchisees and managers make regular unannounced visits to the homes to ensure caregivers are following the specifics of the Custom Care Plan.
Cannot say enough wonderful things about Right at Home. Right at Home was originally hired just to help with medications for my 83 year old father as he was alone in his home in Massachusetts while his four daughters live in Florida. As anyone that has an elderly loved one that lives out of state knows..it's hard to worry from afar. It was a great relief to know that Right at Home was checking on him and keeping in touch with us in Florida. The nurse was trustworthy, caring, kind and just fantastic in every way. Right at Home spent much time on the phone with us to help choose and get him into a rehab facility after he was sick last year, which I always felt was above and beyond. Just recently I was up in Massachusetts with my father because he had developed an infection. My dad refused to go to the hospital and the nurse from Right at Home stayed with us for an extra 4 hours or so until we could finally get the help my father desperately needed at the hospital. Again above and beyond. The Right at Home nurse was like an angel during this stressful time. Five stars is not enough to rate how much Right at Home helped us with our dad.
