Italian Club Mesa
Right at Home Mesa was invited to attend an event at the Arizona American Italian Club by Aunt Barb’s Placement Agency. Over 30 vendors were there that help with the aging population. Air Conditioning, Home Health, Home Care, Cabinet repair, massage therapist, Legal advice, Palliative care, etc. It is always an honor to be included at an event that serves the elderly. There are so many people out and about that take advantage of an elder’s situation and gives them false information and repair things that don’t need to be repaired. Being a part of a group of colleagues that trust each other and know they will be honest and fair is what these events are all about. Thanks for Barbara and Monica for inviting us to be part of your group. And special thanks goes to Arizona American Italian Club for hosting this event.
Dollhouse find new home after donation to Leisure World

In those 20 years, the house went through a large amount of trauma and needed remodeled With our daughter now done with college, the doll house needed a new home. Right at Home provides care for several clients in Leisure World and are familiar with Leisure World’s charity events and their donations to many organizations. We know that the doll house would go to a great home after the remodel. After several months and many man hours, the doll house was auctioned to a couple who bought it for their own daughter. She has a disability herself and this doll house will be a part of her therapy. The proceeds went to fund another project in the workshop. They are in the middle of building toy cars for the U.S. Marine to give to the children in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks to our donation, they are able to make an additional 150 toy cars.
