Non Medical Support
Dad is finishing up being ill and is a little weak. He could use help with meals and basic housekeeping until he regains his strength.
Mom remains in steady health for her 82 years and wants to stay in the house even though Dad is now gone. But some days she just gets so lonely.
Grandma is in an independent living apartment, but she needs rides to doctor appointments and to get her hair cut and colored. (She’s not giving up her favorite stylist after 40 years!) Grandma also enjoys her weekly outing to bargain shop.

Commonly Asked Questions About Non-Medical Services
Q. How will you find the right companion for my senior?
Once you contact us, your local Right at Home Darien, CT office begins a personal assessment of your loved one’s specific needs. We set up an initial in-home visit with your senior and your family members and we interact in-depth about what services would work best for what your elder needs. Next, we develop a Custom Home Service Plan just for your senior and work with you on any modifications. We then search our team of bonded/insured companions to find the appropriate team member for your loved one. Matching details include your senior’s needs and interests and the relational compatibility of your loved one and our at-home assistant.
Q. What if my senior only needs a little assistance?
Not a problem at all. We are available for how many hours or days of the week your senior needs extra help. If your loved one only needs assistance with organizing the house and dusting and vacuuming once a week, we’re here to help. If your senior wants a walking companion three times a week, we’re here to help. Right at Home adult support service is flexible to fit the support service that is needed and for how often you prefer.
Q. Are we locked into a long-term service contract?
Right at Home does not lock you into a long-term contract. Our exceptional service speaks for itself. We can accommodate the type and length of companionship your loved one needs, whether your family needs a couple hours of respite or you are looking for multiple weeks of service for your loved one. Contact our office to explore the types of nonmedical services and support plans we offer.
Q. How quickly can in-home service start?
Often we can match a companion to your senior’s individual needs and living situation within days of your initial contact with us. While we hesitate to rush and bypass our well-tested process in evaluating the optimum experience for your loved one, we will work with you to make adjustments in more time-sensitive situations. Give us a call, and together we’ll figure out the next best steps for your senior’s continued well-being, safety and contentment.
