Owner of Right at Home Darien
David Babcock, Owner
With the passing of his father from complications of Diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s, and an extended illness with his Mom, Dave’s interest in the homecare industry began. When his mom was ill several years ago, he and his siblings took care of her in shifts. During this time, he developed some of the skills and tools that caretakers all possess. He also realized how difficult it is to be a good caregiver.
It was during this time that he and his family decided they needed in-home care for their Mom, at least for some period of time. They had great difficulty finding the right, quality caregiver that was also qualified, and that became a game changer for Dave; he realized this is an industry where he could make an impact. When he discovered Right at Home, he knew he had found a company that truly catered to, and cared for its patients.
Satisfied with his accomplishments leading the family’s business, Five Star Products, Inc., Dave resigned from the company and begin a new journey by acquiring Right at Home in Darien.
Growing up in Fairfield County, Dave has always had a desire to help and contribute to the area’s development. After graduating from Suffield Academy, where he performed community service, he furthered his education at Denison University earning a Bachelor of Science Degree. He is also a graduate of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Business, Owners, Presidents and Managers (OPM) Program and a member of the Board for the Connecticut Chapter of the American Red Cross.
Through his experiences, Dave has developed a real ease working with seniors, their families, senior living communities, dementia communities, caregivers, doctors, hospital staff, and the like.
