Welcome to Right at Home, from Tref and Patty Hietpas, owners, and Carole Holt, Care Coordinator.
This is who we Are: (letter from client's son)
Dear Patty, Carole, Shelley and all of Dick's caregivers,
As this is the Thanksgiving season, I'm very happy on behalf of the Sheehy family to thank all of you for the fine work you have been doing for our father, Dick. We really don't know how we could have managed without you . From the day Dad came home in April each one of you, from office personnel to in-house caregivers have helped restore his spirits, lighten his burdens, and made him so happy to be home.
Running our own business, I know the work that goes on in an office, behind the scenes so to speak. Your efficiency and attention to detail in all such regards has been very professional and has contributed to Dick's well being from day one. I knew for instance that you had "primed" your caregivers with knowledge about Dick's interests such as history, his love of family, and his deep ties to Washington Island, Wisconsin Personally, I also appreciate the time and effort you made to insure that I had, as the lead family contact with RAH, every bit of information and assistance I needed to understand and handle the business end of our contract.
To Dad's caregivers goes our truely heartfelt thanks. They are on the front line 24/7 and nowhere near enough can be said for the job they do. As much as family members pop in and out, it is your caregivers who are always there for him. From his daily needs, to bringing and cooking fresh caught perch dinners and homemade pies, to going on rides to the movie theater, the farm market, through the state parks to enjoy this past falls colorful foliage, to always helping with his doctors' visits, to travelling with us to Dad's beloved island home, the caregivers have shared so much of themselves to see that Dad has as good a life as possible. No one could ask for more!
I also thank you all for enlightening what was once my own limited idea of what the home care business is really about. Beyond all the work, and there is much indeed, there are two words that come to my mind: Dignity and Love. These are the things that aging persons need most, and in my family's experience, Right At Home has helped our father feel both.
On behalf of the entire Sheehy Clan, thank you so very much.
