Hospital to Home

After a stay at the hospital or other care facility, there’s nothing like returning to the comfort of home. A discharge from the hospital can seem like a welcome end to an injury or illness. But the transition to living at home can be daunting. It’s difficult to manage appointments, medications,and the routines of daily living such as grocery shopping and housework when all you want to do is rest and recuperate. That’s why we developed our RightTransitions® program.

Right at Home Chattanooga can help seniors and adults with disabilities get home safely and prevent further hospitalizations with regular visits by our trained caregivers. We’re here to make living at home easier, so you can save your energy for recovery.

Everyone at Right at Home, from the office to the caregivers is courteous, responsive and genuine. There's no higher compliment than being able to say I trust Right At Home with my family."

"At first, I was concerned about bringing people into my parents home that I didn’t know. I now know that the level of professionalism and knowledge, not to mention kindness of the caregivers employed by Right at Home, is excellent. I’m so glad that I am working with them—aging is tough, and this group is helping us through it. I can count on the caregivers and, when problems arise, they are solved expeditiously. I can recommend them without hesitation."

"Right at Home was such a blessing for my family. They provided care for my mother that allowed her to remain independent in her home instead of moving into an assisted living. They helped get her to and from doctor's appointments, clean her home, and make her meals. We just loved our ladies that were part of her life and are so thankful for all they provided."

"My mom’s caregiver has been with her for over 3 months. She has developed a deep bond with mom and both care about the other every much. Even when mom was in the hospital for 4 days Courtney was right there with her when the family could not be. She also goes to all appointments with me (doctor, hair, and sometimes shopping) to make it easier for mom and me. I am very thankful for the love and support she gives our family."

"The Right at Home caregivers treat my mother as a long time friend. The are very patient and kind. My mother was lonely, but not anymore. She looks forward to her caregiver spending the day with her. They do everything together from eating out and shopping to decluttering the house. My sister and I do not have the time needed during the week to spend with our mother. We are so grateful to Right at Home and highly recommend them to find your loved one the perfect friend."
