Raouf Agrignan | Owner
I am a chemical engineer and always had the passion of helping people. I have my BS in chemical engineering from the University of Utah.
As a student I worked with Autistic people and senior citizens as a Certified Nursing Aid (CNA) while going to engineering school. As a CNA I provided personal Care to seniors in an assisted living facility.
I enjoyed helping people in their daily life activities. Assisting seniors was an inspiration that led me to this business and I am looking forward to improving the lives of seniors in Des Moines and the surrounding areas.

Esther Jacobsen | Scheduling Coordinator
Hi! My name is Esther Jacobsen and I have been in the Health Care Business for over thirty years starting as a CNA and eventually becoming the Dementia Coordinator in a Nursing Home located in Carroll, Iowa. In 2014 I moved to DesMoines and started my position as the Staffing Coordinator at Right at Home. In my role, I assist with day to day activities that involve our clients and caregivers. My favorite part about my job is when I fit the right caregiver with the right client. My daily goal is to make sure our clients are receiving top notch care from our staff and fulfilling their wishes in staying home as long as they can with our help.
I have three children that have blessed me with ten grandchildren. They are my favorite past time! I enjoy spending time with them at the Iowa State Fair or just spending time in the yard doing various outdoor activities.
