Non-Senior Care

Before Mandy was born, Joe and Lois knew they had a special child with special needs. Mandy was diagnosed with Down Syndrome while Lois was still pregnant. But Mandy's condition has never affected her determined spirit and keen sense of independence. As she entered her twenties, it was this independence that allowed Joe and Lois to help their daughter to move into her own apartment a few blocks away. Mandy's parents knew that she needed a little more supervision and assistance than a typical young adult. They also knew that Mandy would become defiant if she felt her parents were checking on her too often. That's why Joe and Lois introduced Mandy to Erica.

Erica is a Right at Home caregiver that stops by Mandy's apartment to make sure that she doesn't need anything and that things are going well. Mandy loves Erica's visits. The two of them visit for a couple of hours every few days while Erica helps Mandy with things around the house or takes her shopping. The whole experience has strengthened the relationship between Mandy and her parents, as well.

Right at Home provides numerous companionship and homemaking services to Mandy, including:

  • Safety supervision
  • Companionship
  • Helping with hobbies and crafts
  • Reading aloud from books, newspapers and magazines
  • Transportation
  • Bringing in newspaper/mail
  • Playing cards/games
  • Grocery shopping
  • Light housekeeping

We greatly appreciate the professionalism each of the cargivers demonstrated. As family, the peace of mind provided by knowing a trained well qualified and reliable caregiver was assisting our family member was priceless. They kept us well informed and became trusted "team" members especially as we provided love and care to our beloved family member in those final months. Thank you again for all you continue to do. It is with great peace and confidence that I continue to refer others to Right at Home and their great staff.
