Yes. Every caregiver is employed by the local Right at Home office. To help ensure the safety and well-being of our clients, we perform a criminal history background clearance and then cover each caregiver with general liability and workers' compensation insurance.

Yes. We do our best to take the guesswork out of matching the right caregiver with you and your family by using our proprietary screening and selection system. We encourage your involvement in the decision-making process. Your satisfaction is important so we try to accommodate requests for a change in caregivers, as allowed by law.

Our goal is to establish a long-term caregiving relationship with your loved one. Should your family want to request another caregiver for any reason, we'll search for a match until your family is happy. We understand that a strong rapport and trust with a caregiver are vital to a successful in-home care experience.

If your loved one receives care for many hours in a day or at different times of the day throughout the week, it may be necessary to schedule more than one caregiver in a given week. If your family requires multiple caregivers, our goal is the same: We want you to be satisfied and happy. We'll do what it takes to make sure we achieve that goal.

You can change the frequency or type of service we provide your loved one whenever it's necessary. We understand the care situation can quickly change, so we're as flexible as possible with your loved one's care.

Right at Home uses several tools to track the care our caregivers provide. First, we use simple time sheets filled out by each caregiver. Then, we use a combination of internet-based solutions to verify time and attendance. This allows you to have a written record of care services provided in the home. We can also provide written verification at any time.

Also, our itemized invoices are always sent after services are complete. This lets you ask any questions about time or date of care, and it allows us to make any schedule adjustments before your next invoice is sent.

No. You don't need pre-authorization, pre-qualification, certification or even a prescription for Right at Home's services. You choose the services you want, when to start those services and how often those services are used.

If you request assistance with billing a private insurance policy (such as long-term care insurance) for our services, we would be happy to help with the entire "benefits coordination" process. This includes providing any documentation you may need for reimbursement by an insurance carrier.

Every family we serve receives a custom care plan specific to their needs and budget. Several factors help determine the exact cost:

  • Number of hours of care per week
  • Level of home care services received (nonmedical, skilled nursing, etc.)
  • Area of the country where services are provided

Our home care services are typically billed on an hourly basis. This makes it easy to make a custom care plan for you. To discuss the exact rates for the services you may need, contact your local office. We’ll set up an in-home consultation to begin discussing a custom care plan and the rates for each service on your plan.

We always provide a written rate sheet prior to initiating care services. Rates will never be increased without at least 30 days’ notice.

Medicare provides an eligibility tool to see if your family qualifies, but they typically don't pay for the type of hourly personal care service that Right at Home provides. Right at Home may be able to provide documentation to third parties such as long-term care insurance companies that could help you obtain the best coverage possible.

Additionally, Right at Home has preferred relationships with many companies that either fully reimburse or partially reimburse for home health care. Typical accounts for reimbursement include reverse mortgage, health savings accounts and flexible spending accounts.

We also work with reimbursement programs like Veterans Aid and Attendance, a benefit paid to veterans and surviving spouses who require our services; the benefit is in addition to their monthly pension.

No. You (or an authorized representative) are only invoiced after the completion of services. Usually, this happens weekly. You never have to pay caregivers directly. And you'll never be asked to pay an additional fee to any employee.

We adhere to all applicable federal and state guidelines related to privacy of personal and health care information. This starts once we have a formal service agreement, before a caregiver even comes to your family member's home. The written service agreement stipulates the exact restrictions on the use of your information, which clarifies that unauthorized individuals will not be given access to information without a client's or their legally authorized representative's formal consent.

Your information is never sold to a third party under any circumstances. In fact, only the office personnel and caregivers who are directly involved in your service will have access to information related to the care of your loved one.

Give us a call. We'll arrange a time to visit you, your family and/or any authorized representative to fully discuss your particular home care situation and how Right at Home might help.

Together, we'll go over the care your family needs and the care we provide. We'll answer all of your questions regarding in-home care services and costs. Then, we'll begin putting together your custom care plan and matching your loved one with the right caregiver. Usually, care can begin within a matter of a few days.

"When I contacted Right at Home about a caregiver for my wife, I had no idea what to expect. Enter Jennifer. Jennifer immediately established a rapport with my wife, Teddy. She was not just a caregiver and companion; she became a family member. Jennifer has been a very caring and compassionate friend to Teddy, always ready to go that extra mile. The time has now come for Teddy to enter a structured care facility, but myself and our family, will always remember Jennifer for the wonderful and caring person that she is. May God bless you, Jennifer."

"Cindy and I couldn't be more grateful to Right at Home for the quality of service and the care and compassion demonstrated toward Mom. After a bit of adjustment with individual caregivers, Vicki was able to assemble an amazing team who gave Mom the dignity and compassion she deserved in her final years. We would recommend Right at Home to anyone seeking home care services. In fact, we have recommended Right at Home to friends and colleagues. We think you are all truly wonderful and we are extremely grateful to have had Right at Home as part of Mom's "circle of support."

"I like the friendliness and the fact that they can handle any of my problems. I've had a couple of strokes, but I wasn't in favor of having someone in my home. I have someone to keep me company. I had a caregiver clean the entire house and that has helped considerably. They do anything I need them to. I like that I can call them and know them on a personal basis. It makes it easier. They know my habits and that I need someone who has a vehicle and who can drive me. They are advised to that before they come. "

"I think they do a good job. They are always prompt, and I'm really pleased with it. It's been very good for me. They are great. They take me to the bathroom, talk to me, and are very good at what they do. They also feed me. They do everything I ask them to do. They are matched very well. I just get along with everyone."
