Dad is finishing up his chemotherapy 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.

With a little extra hand of an in-home health aide, older adults can enjoy their day-to-day activities safely and confidently. A world-leading provider of non-medical health aide care, Right at Home also gives family caregivers a respite break and chance to recharge.
With our comprehensive senior care services, Right at Home knows just how to help older adults live well and age well . . . right at home.

Commonly Asked Questions About Nonmedical Health Aide Services
Q. How will you find the right health aide for my senior?
Once you contact us, we set up an initial in-home consultation with your senior and your family members and we interact in-depth about what services your elder requests and have a Custom Task List. Next, we use the Custom Task List just for your senior and work with you on any modifications. We then search our team of highly trained, bonded/insured health aides 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 in-home care provider.
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 in-home care is flexible to fit the care that is needed and for how often you prefer.
Q. If we needed more specialty care, can you offer that?
We can always review the Custom Task List as individual needs change. If your loved one develops a serious illness or declines in cognitive ability, we would evaluate if your current Right at Home health aide still is the best fit or whether we should look for another well-matched health aide.
Q. Are we locked into a long-term service contract?
Right at Home does not lock you into a long-term contract. Our exceptional in-home care speaks for itself. We can accommodate the type and length of in-home care your loved one needs, whether your family needs a couple hours of respite care or you are looking for multiple weeks of care for your loved one. Contact your local Right at Home office to explore the types of nonmedical health aide services they may offer.
Q. How quickly can in-home care service start?
Often we can match a home health aide to your senior’s individual needs and living situation within days of your initial contact with us. Give us a call, and together we’ll figure out the next best steps for your senior’s continued well-being, safety and contentment.
