How Does Home Care from Right at Home Work?
Some people need assistance until they get back on their feet after an illness or surgery. For others, more continuous assistance is required. Right at Home provides help a few hours per week or 24-hours a day.
When you call our office, we begin asking questions to make sure we understand your needs. Then we develop a Custom Care Plan for your review and approval. Once approved, we work hard to find the right trained, insured and bonded caregiver to meet your specific needs based on our many years of experience. Caregivers are then supervised by members of our team, including Registered Nurses, who ensure the specifics of the Care Plan are being followed.
