Senior Home Care is Personal to Van
In 1998 Van’s mother passed away after suffering from pancreatic cancer. Near the end of her life Van’s family utilized a hospice service to provide primary care for their mother, and their eyes were opened to the impact of the home health care industry on patients and their families.
A New Path
After this experience, Van began researching the health care service business and attended classes to learn about health insurance so that he could become more familiar with the industry. With healthcare at the forefront, Van wanted to make sure he was well educated concerning the healthcare market. After meeting with the RAH corporate team during Discovery Day, Van realized the company truly understood the healthcare segment and provided an incredible support system for their franchisees to give the best client experience in the industry.

In Loving Memory of Mrs. Phyllis Andrews
Van Andrews honors his mother's memory by taking care of families in Indianapolis. Here is what Van has to say about his personal experience that led him to start his journey with Right at Home Indianapolis North.
"My mom passed away from pancreatic cancer 15 years ago. My father was my mother’s primary caregiver and watching him care for my mother during this time was really tough. It wasn’t until her last few months that we sought out hospice care. They came in and took care of my mother during her last few months. Watching this transition inspired me to buy a Home Care Franchise such as Right At Home. Having watched what my mother went through was emotional. That experience helps me relate to families about the transitions with their loved one." — Van Andrews, Right at Home Owner
