For over 25 years, Right at Home has provided quality care to seniors and their families when they need it the most. Hearing that an illness is not responding to treatment or that the end of life may be near can be extremely difficult. Many people prefer to spend their remaining days at home where they are most familiar. This can put a lot of pressure on family members. Our hospice care service provides support for family and comfort care for clients.
Providing Care to Your Family During Hospice
Whether you are simply trying to relieve someone's pain during a serious illness or whether you're trying to provide end-of-life care, it can produce a lot of stress for everyone involved in caregiving.
We can give you a respite from the daily tasks that seem to build. Our caregivers can provide support during trying times while our care plan coordinates for you, provides frequent and timely updates, and provides grief support.
We coordinate the care plan with hospice on your behalf. During this difficult transition period we understand your family is busy making arrangements and shouldering heavy burdens. We stand in for you and coordinate care with hospice. We will take away the worry of medication management, maintaining good hygiene, and inform both hospice and you of any changes in care and progress. Our goal is to provide peace of mind to you. Know that your loved one has someone who cares for their needs.
Open Lines of Communication
We provide frequent updates on care and progress of anyone within our care, both to you and the hospice staff. Caring in hospice requires commitment through all levels of care. Our caregivers through experience and training are able to let families know changes in condition and alert families and hospice clinicians. We understand that sometimes family members cannot be present due to distance or other commitments and hospice staff does not provide long stays. Our presence insures that families and hospice staff receive timely and frequent updates even while they are away.
Care Whenever You Need It
24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can have time to rest as well as focus on other issues that makes the transition of the patient easier and comfortable. Contact us with any questions or for help through a hospice transition.
We provide support to any stage of grief. Our board certified chaplain and certified pastoral counselor, George Dzimiri, has over 16 years of experience walking alongside families through hospice. We are aware how much emotional, spiritual, and psychologically overwhelming end of life care can be. Our chaplain is available 24/7 to provide support to families.
We also offer spiritual support to staff and residents in skilled nursing facilities, independent living, rehabilitations centers, and memory care units. Our grief counseling is available to anyone and anywhere we work.
Providing Hospice Support
Right at Home’s compassionate caregivers are there to provide emotional support for clients by relieving anxiety and stress.

In addition to respite care and companion care, we also provide personal care in many areas. This includes:
- Bathing and showering assistance
- Bed baths
- Oral hygiene
- Toilet and incontinence care
