Your Career as a Caregiver

Home Care Pulse Employer of Choice Award

At Right at Home You're More Than a "Number"

Right at Home Chicago Metro invites and attracts team members of the highest quality and professionalism. Our mission is to simply make each day better. Doing the very best we can for others makes a difference. Being present, listening, understanding, learning, helping, working, advocating, and celebrating are at the core of who we are.

This is what we offer our clients, their friends and families, our care team and employees, and our community at large. Our team is dedicated, smart, and dependable, working in a culture rooted in relationships.

Caregivers go by a variety of names, such as home care aides, home caretakers, and home health assistants. Whatever the name, as a Right at Home team member, you have access to premier benefits and incentives, but the biggest benefit is how you'll feel making a difference in people's lives. We know each employee has the responsibility of juggling work, family time, and life; yet day after day they are present for our clients. Our clients know they can count on our caregivers and employees to do the little things that can make such a difference in people's lives and that build relationships of trust, respect and joy. Right at Home's caregiving professionals are the heart and soul of what we do — true ambassadors of Right at Home and deserving our respect. They're so much more than just a number and a paycheck.
