Right at Home of Eastern Worcester County Honored Among Top Home Care Agencies in the Nation -- Named "Caring Star of 2018" for Senior Care Service Excellence

Positive Consumer Ratings Led to This Industry-Leading Distinction from

Westborough, Mass. – (December 7, 2017) — Right at Home of Eastern Worcester County (RAHEWC) is pleased to announce it has been selected as a "Caring Star of 2018” for in-home care service excellence. In ratings and reviews from family caregivers and cognitively healthy older adults, RAHEWC earned a 5-star consumer rating (the highest possible score) within the last year, while also having a high volume of positive reviews and meeting other qualifying criteria for this national honor. RAHEWC is among 253 home care agencies across the nation who earned the Caring Stars 2018 distinction.

“We aim to constantly deliver the highest quality of in-home care to our clients, and this award helps validate our delivery on that promise,” said Gail J. Hanson, owner of RAHEWC. “It is extremely gratifying to be able to serve this community and be recognized for what we offer our clients. On behalf of our caregivers, we want to say thank you to those who shared positive feedback and helped us become a Caring Star.”

Online reviews help Americans research and select the best senior care providers for aging or ailing loved ones. In multiple research studies, the majority of family caregivers have indicated that they turn to the Internet and consumer reviews when narrowing their options among home care agencies in their area and have relied on these perspectives as much as or more so than in-person recommendations from geriatric professionals or medical personnel. Now entering its seventh year, the Caring Stars annual list helps consumers see which home care agencies are top rated by other families just like theirs – which is particularly helpful as families gather for the holidays and discover increased or urgent senior care needs for their parents or grandparents.

"Congratulations to Right at Home for achieving this award after earning accolades on from clients and their loved ones," said Karen Cassel, CEO. "This important milestone speaks volumes about the positive difference Right at Home is making in serving older adults, and we celebrate their accomplishment."

Some of the positive feedback that led to Right at Home being a Caring Star of 2018 includes:

  • “I was grateful to have been able to find a company that was very kind and caring and I had no worries that my Dad was in good hands.”
  • “We recently used Right at Home for my Dad while he was at home for hospice care. The caregivers were professional, courteous, and supportive. It provided our family great relief to have professionals watching our father during this time so we could spend time with him without worrying about his medical needs.”
