Trained and Compassionate Caregivers

caregiverOur caregivers want more than a job. They want to make a difference in the lives of those they care for. As a company, our job is to give caregivers the direction and tools they need to fulfill their personal mission of service, as well as our corporate mission of improving the lives of those we serve.

Carefully Selected Individuals

To ensure that the people we employ meet our high standards, we have a rigorous selection process.

Before caregivers can become employed with Right at Home and begin caring for clients, every one of them must go through:

  • Reference checks
  • Background clearance
  • Personal interviews
  • Competency testing

Training and Continuing Education

Once a caregiver meets our strict selection criteria, it's just the beginning. First, all Right at Home caregivers are insured and bonded. Then, each caregiver goes through a comprehensive orientation process that ingrains our policies and procedures.

We provide ongoing, specialized training that ensures that our caregivers understand the high standards of care expected by Right at Home.

Through Right at Home University, caregivers are given training on issues that help them develop as better overall caregivers, as well as deal with very specific situations, including:

Meet Our Caregivers

Our Hero Caregiver, JennJenn Jakob has been in caregiving field for 8 years and has experience in homecare and facility. She says: "I like to make changes in seniors' lives. I want them to have a good life. All clients are special to me and every experience with them is memorable". She wants to become a CNA "to keep caring for people in need and would recommend Right at Home to all seniors and caregivers for its flexibility and friendliness"!

Our Hero Caregiver, EmilyEmily Soldridge has been with us for almost 2 years. She is a RN student who says "was driven to look for a job that will help me to become a better nurse". She says: "I am not just a caregiver. I love building relationships and I am more than a friend to them. I like to make a difference in my clients' life-it makes me very happy as I make memories every single day".

Our Hero Caregiver, KelcieKelcie Basan in her own words: "I have been with Right at Home since April 2020. I joined the field of caregiving to gain patient experience to become a better nurse once I graduate. This field is about caring for others which is the main reason I want to become a nurse. To me being a caregiver is more than just a job. It is becoming a friend and companion to the clients I take care of. I see most of my clients everyday so I want to build a trusting relationship with them to improve their care and quality of life."

"My typical day of work involves helping with showers, preparing meals, and other household chores. Now during the COVID pandemic, my favorite part of my shifts are learning more about my clients and sharing stories. I enjoy doing activities they like to do such as puzzles, singing, or watching their favorite shows. One of my most memorable experiences was being able to take a client to the Farmers market in town. The client hadn’t been there since the virus happened and it brought her so much joy to get out of the house. I was so happy to give her that experience."

"My goal for the future is to become a nurse. Specifically, I would like to become a pediatric nurse and bring joy to children. When I was in high school my best friend's boyfriend was diagnosed with cancer. I spent many hours at the Children’s hospital and seeing how the nurses changed the patients lives during such a bad time made me passionate about helping children. I would recommend Right at Home to work for because the experiences with the clients are unlike anything else."

Not all heroes wear capes.
