Celebrating Our Caregivers is Part of Our Culture
"Our caregivers have been and will continue to be the foundation of our growth and success. In home care is based on individual relationships that are built between our caregiver and their client. Having caregivers that are attentive and engaged is what fuels our success. We have prospered because our caregivers have followed the golden rule of 'treating others the way you would like to be treated.' We discuss this in new hire training and make it part of our culture. Keeping this 'top of mind' will allow us to remain the agency of choice in the areas we serve."
— Eric Hicks, Owner of Right at Home (pictured)
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.

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 fo 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.
