Hattie had always been active. She went for long runs years before jogging was popular. She had even hiked part of the Appalachian Trail. And she still chased her toddler grandson around the living room whenever her daughter and son-in-law were in town. But Hattie started to have hip pain that worsened with time. Her doctor suggested a hip replacement. Hattie didn’t hesitate. However, there was no one within driving distance who was able to help Hattie with her needs during her recovery. Hattie and her daughter consulted with Right at Home, deciding to have a caregiver come to the house for the first three weeks after Hattie’s surgery. The procedure went off without a hitch and after a few weeks, Hattie was back on her feet and felt decades younger.
While she was recovering, Right at Home provided numerous companionship and homemaking services to Hattie, including:
- Bringing in newspaper/mail
- Light housekeeping
- Grocery shopping
- Washing dishes
- Laundry services
- Running errands
- Range of motion exercises
