Right at Home Values Our Caregivers
Caregivers Are the Heart and Soul of Right at Home Charleston
Right at Home Charleston's mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve. We succeed through teamwork and having the best caregivers in the industry. Their professionalism, training, compassion and commitment to our clients and our clients' loved ones is unparalleled and we appreciate all they do. Every year, every month, every day we appreciate our outstanding Caregivers who are going above and beyond to create an amazing experience for our clients in Charleston and its surrounding areas. We truly value our outstanding people. Who knows, maybe a career as a caregiver is right for you!
Our caregivers are the foundation of our growth and success, and those who have been with us for years now are a wonderful example of this. Our long term employees provide the experience and expertise that clients are looking for and that Right at Home appreciates and values as the face of our industry. In a continued effort to always show our appreciation for the caregivers, starting in January 2021, we began giving a bonus for those who reach milestone work anniversaries of 3, 5, 7, and 10 years.

In 2022, Right at Home Charleston decided to have our very first Halloween trick-or-treating event. Our office staff wanted to get in on the fun of the holiday and share the good times with the caregivers and their families. Office staff dressed up in costumes, we decorated our office, and then invited caregivers to bring their children and/or grandchildren by the office for a couple of hours in the afternoon on Halloween to trick-or-treat. Each office staff member had a bowl of candy or treat bags prepared and enjoyed seeing all the smiling faces of the children as they came in. A good time was had by all who attended!
Caregiver Appreciation Party!
Right at Home has a yearly Caregiver Appreciation Party and part of the fun is raffling off gift cards. Pictured is caregiver Jordan Holleman with her $25 Kroger Gift Card.
Caregiver of the Year 2018 — Berkley Hopkins
Berkley Hopkins, a Right at Home caregiver since 2011, is defined as excellent when it comes to providing care.
“The question isn’t why Berkley should be awarded, but why shouldn’t she. She leaves me at a loss for words. I get emotional because she always has my back.” — Autumn Ward, Right at Home caregiver. Berkley's clients love her, “She’s in high demand and is spread thin sometimes. She never complains,” Ward said.
Berkley sees her role as a caregiver as a way to improve the lives of others, rather than a job. “When people have good care they feel comforted and feel like they’re still able to stay home,” Hopkins said. “Love. Have love and feel compassion. Take care of them and help them get better. Just be there for them.”
According to Caregiver recruiter, Cheri Beck, Hopkins has continually developed a bond with patients and given them a sense of security. Aside from care, and comradery, Hopkins also prays with her patients, furthering her love and compassion.
Berkley Hopkins was recognized in the Princeton Times.
