Our Mission

Put simply, our mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve. Of course, we recognize that everyone’s idea of “quality of life” is different, which is why it’s so important to us to make you an active part of your own care plan. We want you to be in the driver’s seat regardless of any limitations or challenges you’re facing.

Most of all, we believe aging isn’t just about staying healthy, safe and independent. It’s also about living well.

Right at Home Austin

Right at Home Austin Owner Edwin Young

Right at Home Austin West was started by Edwin Young after his grandmother told him she didn't want to go into a nursing home or other assisted living facility. His grandmother needed help, but only wanted to live independently and be cared for in her home. He believed many seniors, and their families, must feel the same way. Right at Home Austin West works with various healthcare providers and families to provide homecare in Austin that makes life a little less complicated for all family members involved and Edwin is heavily involved in the daily activities to make sure your family is treated with the care they deserve.

Edwin graduated from UNT and spent over 20 years working with companies such as Dial and GE. Edwin is also a Certified Senior Advisor. Homecare in Austin is an important part of the healthcare support system and, as Edwin puts it, "We are working hard to increase the quality of care our clients receive each and every day."

The importance of helping people and supporting the community at large is a big part of serving others. Through in-home care, Right at Home Austin offers an empathetic helping hand to support people as they live their future.

Our Philanthropy

Globally, an estimated 70 million people with disabilities have no access to a wheelchair. Those who cannot walk must crawl or be carried to their destination. In collaboration with a network of like-minded partners, Free Wheelchair Mission has distributed more than 1 million wheelchairs to people with disabilities in 93 developing countries around the world, providing renewed dignity, independence and hope through the gift of mobility, at no cost to the recipient.

As an organization, Right at Home's work with Free Wheelchair Mission began in 2016 as the company looked for a partner that would help us further our mission of improving lives worldwide. To date, the Right at Home team's efforts have raised more than $400,000 that has funded over 5,000 wheelchairs, which were distributed through life-changing Vision Trips to Vietnam, Ecuador and Costa Rica.
