VA Approved Senior Home Care Provider in Belmont, NC
Countless U.S. veterans valiantly served our country, but now struggle every day to live at home and care for themselves. Thousands of U.S. wartime veterans and their surviving spouses, aged 65 and older, are in need of in-home caregiver assistance. Unfortunately, not many of them are aware of tax-free benefits that they are entitled to through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
At Right at Home Belmont, we are a veteran owned and operated home care agency, and always glad to help our Gastonia and Belmont area veterans get everything for which they are qualified.

“Denise (caregiver) has been wonderful, and she’s done real well. And Bill Osborne, the owner of Right at Home, has been such a godsend for me. He helped coordinate care for me through the VA. It’s so nice to know there are people out there who are helping veterans get what they need and what they deserve.”

Supporting Military Spouses
We are a veteran-friendly employer and are supportive to military significant others and spouses.
“When a deployment happens, which can be up to 18 months, it’s a hard, hard time for the military spouse. What we’ve found as an employer is, we can provide more than a place to work. We are there for them. They know that they have a place to go, someone to talk to. We can help them get through the time that when it feels so long for their loved ones to be gone.”
Heather Hicks’ husband was deployed to Kuwait when she first joined Right at Home. During the deployment, Hicks said the Osbornes would call to check in on her from time to time; “It’s been so nice to have the extra support of the Osbornes. Someone without military background wouldn’t understand the idea of being married to the military.”
