Providing RightCare for Tony and his family

Caregiver Bridgette and Tony

"My grandfather (98 years) lives in a facility in a small town in TX. We take turns going out to be with him and get him to and from his off-facility Doctor visits. With our schedules it has been hard and expensive to coordinate and fly out every time we need to take him off-site, and going alone with the van driver causes him extreme anxiety. When Care first became available I was disappointed because they didn’t have any services in that remote part of Austin and my request could not be filled so we made the needed arrangements for November. After that, I quickly realized how hard care was working to bring on a service provider in that area. Within weeks they found a wonderful partner (Right at Home) and they were able to pair a care giver with my grandpa for his visit last month. I only had to pay $4 total for Bridget to go to and from the Dr. with him and I just wanted you to know the value this benefit has to families in need of help who are separated by distance like mine. One more thing I learned is that after the 10 days of care is used, our service provider is going to honor the care.com contracted rate for per hour, which is significantly less than their regular premium rate. Much appreciated! - Eric, Tony's grandson

"Hello Ms. Greenwalt, I would like to introduce myself; my name is Angela, Tony (98) is my father-in-law. I first want to tell you how thankful we are that Starbucks has implemented this wonderful benefit, that my son, Eric, who lives in Seattle, can share with his family. The service your company provides has truly been a life saver for me. Knowing you are there for dad has alleviated my stress and anxiety. For the last four years I have been flying back and forth to Texas to be with dad on an average of every three months, staying for two to nine weeks at a time. Unfortunately, I have not been able to return to Texas since September 2018 because of my own health issues. I love this man as my own father. My heart’s desire is to be with him. I live in California and as you know, he's in Texas. It has been, both, exhausting and expensive going back and forth. Thank you for the care you provide for families. It has been an invaluable asset, both emotionally and financially, to have Care.com and Right at Home to call on. What a blessing and a comfort to know someone will accompany dad to his doctor visits and/or just visit with him. Having this benefit is a wonderful stress reliever and takes away my worries that dad will have a companion when he needs someone. It also alleviates the pressure of calling a family member or friend to go and/or be with dad. Again, thank you for the help you provide." - Angela, Tony's Daughter-in-law
