Award-Winning Home Care
Bill and Karanda Osborne, Owners
We are on top of the world with our newest addition to the family, and are proud to be members of the international, award winning, Right at Home family! My beautiful wife Karanda is a CPA and manages the finances, Wyatt manages us, and I run day to day operations as the President and Agency Director with the support of our compassionate Caregivers and administrative team.
Right at Home Belmont primarily serves a mix of large and quaint historic mill towns west of Charlotte throughout the Greater Gaston County Area as well as Steele Creek down into south Charlotte. Our office sits on the corner of North Main and Catawba in the iconic Stowe Building downtown Belmont, where you can still hear the whistles of the Norfolk Southern train rumbling by.
Bringing Marine Corps Critical Care Experience back home to serve seniors in Gastonia and Belmont
Post deployment, I obtained a BS in Health Services Management from East Carolina University and, for over a decade, lived out a passion of practicing lifesaving critical care in the back of helicopters, airplanes, and ambulances, as an Aeromedical Specialist prior to Right at Home. I strongly believe it adds irreplaceable value to maintain current credentials as a Registered Respiratory Therapist—Adult Critical Care Specialist, Neonatal/Pediatric Specialist, and EMT, providing additional oversight for clients with serious cardiopulmonary diagnoses. I am a proud veteran of the Marine Corps having seen combat in Fallujah, Iraq. I enjoy collaborating with fellow veterans to help our brothers and sisters in need.
We are blessed with and take very sincerely the opportunity to provide both emotional and physical support allowing clients and loved one’s piece of mind, safety, and comfort, right in their own home. In continuation of aspiring to make a positive difference for others in need, Karanda and I are fortunate with the ability to use our God given talents in ways that will improve the quality of life for those we serve with Right at Home!
