Home Care in Cedar Rapids from Local Professionals
Stephanie Humphries | Owner
It is my absolute pleasure to be the owner of Right at Home in Cedar Rapids. I love speaking with people, learning about their lives, and determining how we can best serve them. I am a strong believer in helping people stay in their homes in surroundings that are most familiar and comfortable to them. It is our intention at Right at Home to enhance quality of life. My interest in this business is rooted in my professional background of home health physical therapy. The communication and assessment skills I gained through working in physical therapy have served me well in home care. I am an Iowa native and earned both of my degrees from the University of Iowa. My husband and I live in Cedar Rapids and we have three daughters and one golden retriever. I enjoy gardening, the outdoors, traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
Stephanie stays busy as a Caregiver Support Group Group Facilitator with our Local Alzheimer's Association Chapter, Advisory Council Member of the Linn County Heritage Area Agency on Aging, Assistant Treasurer of Linn County TRIAD, Chair of the Linn County Task Force on Aging, Chair of the Health Care Industry Sector Board, Classroom Volunteer with Junior Achievement, and gives many workshops and presentations in and around the community.
Schedule Care Manager
My name is Juan Soto, and I joined the Right at Home Cedar Rapids team in March, 2014 as a CNA a few months after I moved to Iowa due to my wife relocating to the University of Iowa. Prior to joining Right at Home I was a CNA for 12 years working at various assisted living facilities, nursing homes, home health, hospice, and in home care agencies obtaining specialized training in dementia care, Alzheimer and many others. In 2015 I was first promoted to Staff Coordinator and then to a Schedule Care Manager, my current position, where I oversee the daily management of the care-giving staff and take the lead in ensuring our customers receive the best service in the industry. I have enjoyed my time at Right at Home where it feels like working with family, and am excited to continue serving all our incredible customers.
My name is Kristin, I joined the Right at Home team in 2015. I have always loved caring for others starting at an early age. As a young girl I enjoyed helping out in the special needs class room thru my elementary school. From there I knew I had a special gift and that was caring for others. I worked at the ARC with children with disabilities, the hospitals and REM where I gained knowledge of behavior disorders, brain injuries, mental and physical disabilities. I love making a difference and helping others. I have been blessed with two amazing little boys, Cayden and Kayne. Seeing them grow and picking up on characteristics that I see in myself just fills my heart knowing they may follow my path and care for others as well. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and pets, fishing, volleyball and riding my horse. I hope to make an impact on the lives of our clients and staff thru Right at Home.
My name is Christina Gilson and I joined Right at Home in March 2020 with over 10 years of experience in office work in the home health field. I find great satisfaction working in the home care industry and supporting our clients in sustaining their positive quality of life that comes from being able to remain at home. I have two daughters and a son, and I enjoy spending time with them, extended family, and friends. In my spare time, I like doing home improvement projects and traveling.

Nurse Team Lead
I am a Cedar Rapids native who graduated from Jefferson High School and earned my RN/BSN from the University of Iowa. Since that time, I have worked at St. Luke’s Hospital and Oncology Associates. I most recently worked at a home care company as their RN, responsible for responding to a client’s health concerns and using my creativity to assist in managing their symptoms. My favorite part of being a nurse is seeing my client’s health improve as their symptoms lessen. I really enjoy getting to know clients and their families. I joined Right at Home in March 2020 and I am excited to use my expertise within this company. I am married with two adult sons and I enjoy exercising, gardening, and volunteering at my church.
