Right at Home understands that people need a sense of security and well-being. We also understand living hundreds of miles from an aging parent can be stressful. Right at Home provides comfort to both our clients and their families. Our caregivers are trained, bonded and insured. We help your loved one maintain a healthy lifestyle, give them companionship and provide peace of mind for your family.
How Does Home Care from Right at Home Work?
Some people need assistance until they get back on their feet after an illness or surgery. For others, more continuous assistance is required. Right at Home provides help a few hours per week or 24-hours a day.
When you call our office, we begin asking questions to make sure we understand your needs. Then we develop a Custom Care Plan for your review and approval. Once approved, we work hard to find the right trained, insured and bonded caregiver to meet your specific needs based on our many years of experience. Caregivers are then supervised by members of our team, including Registered Nurses, who ensure the specifics of the Care Plan are being followed.
About Right at Home, Inc.
Right at Home was founded by Allen Hager. For many years, Allen worked in healthcare as a hospital administrator. While in the hospital environment, he watched many of his patients – especially seniors – leave the facility and return home, but not necessarily return to health.
Once home, a lot of his former patients were unable to care for themselves.
Allen knew that with a little help, most of these people could lead healthy, happy lives in their own homes. But he also knew that there were very few companies that offered long term care for this kind of help. Allen didn't just jump in and start a franchising company, however.
First, he talked to dozens of families to understand the different kinds of challenges they faced and what kind of long term care would help. Then he became a certified nursing assistant so he could experience the needs of people who were still living in their home but who needed some professional assistance.
In 1995, Allen started Right at Home in Omaha, Nebraska. Five years later, he started branching into other regions of the country by carefully selecting franchisees who shared his passion for caring for those in their community.
Right at Home now has caregivers in more than 300 locations that serve tens of thousands of clients across the United States. We also have caregivers in Canada, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Ireland and China.
Right at Home has provided a continous level of superior, professional companionship service to our 82 year old Mother who is afflicted with several Alzheimers-related medical issues. Through 24/7 supervision, Right at Home thoughtfully selected and assembled a qualified team of caring companions and nurses who have demonstrated an extraordinary committment and compassion often in a challenging environment. Tasked with several responsibilities ranging from grocery shopping, to light house keeping, medical appointments, and personal assistance, Right at Home's caregivers have dramatically improved our Mother's overall socialization, disposition and well-being.
