Non-Medical Home Care

Nonmedical Home Care Can Help Your Senior Loved One

Dad is finishing up his chemotherapy and is a little weak. He could use help with meals and basic housekeeping until he regains his strength.

Mom remains in steady health for her 82 years and wants to stay in the house even though Dad is now gone. But some days she just gets so lonely.

Grandma is in an independent living apartment, but she needs rides to doctor appointments and to get her hair cut and colored. (She’s not giving up her favorite stylist after 40 years!) Grandma also enjoys her weekly outing to bargain shop.

Personal independence is important at any age, but especially for seniors who sometimes feel like they’ve lost other freedoms like driving, traveling alone or entertaining family and friends. With a little extra hand of a trained in-home caregiver, older adults can enjoy their day-to-day activities safely and confidently. A world-leading provider of nonmedical home care, Right at Home also gives family caregivers a respite break and chance to recharge.

With our comprehensive senior care services, Right at Home knows just how to help older adults live well and age well . . . right at home.

Why Use Nonmedical Care

Letting elders age in place can bring fear and uncertainty among family members who can’t regularly be on site with their loved one. Right at Home nonmedical home care ensures seniors maintain as much self-sufficiency as possible, while family members remain at ease knowing their senior is receiving personal, trustworthy care. And, all at a price that’s more affordable than care facilities or a visiting nurse.

Commonly Asked Questions About Nonmedical Care

Q. How will you find the right caregiver for my senior?

Once you contact us, your local Right at Home Harvard office begins a personal assessment of your loved one’s specific needs. We set up an initial in-home visit with your senior and your family members and we interact in-depth about what services would work best for what your elder needs. Next, we develop a Custom Care Plan just for your senior and work with you on any modifications. We then search our team of highly trained, bonded/insured caregivers to find the appropriate team member for your loved one. Matching details include your senior’s needs and interests and the relational compatibility of your loved one and our at-home care provider.

Q. What if my senior only needs a little assistance?

Not a problem at all. We are available for how many hours or days of the week your senior needs extra help. If your loved one only needs assistance with organizing the house and dusting and vacuuming once a week, we’re here to help. If your senior wants a walking companion three times a week, we’re here to help. Right at Home adult home care is flexible to fit the care that is needed and for how often you prefer.

Q. If we needed more specialty care, can you offer that?

We can always adjust your loved one’s Custom Care Plan as individual needs change. If your senior is hospitalized, we can provide more specialized nursing care during at-home recovery. If your loved one develops a serious illness or declines in cognitive ability, we would evaluate if your current Right at Home caregiver still is the best fit or whether we should turn to the skilled nursing skills of another well-matched caregiver.

Q. Are we locked into a long-term service contract?

Right at Home does not lock you into a long-term contract. Our exceptional home care speaks for itself. We can accommodate the type and length of in-home care your loved one needs, whether your family needs a couple hours of respite care or you are looking for multiple weeks of care for your loved one. Contact your local Right at Home office to explore the types of nonmedical services and care plans they may offer.

Q. How quickly can in-home service start?

Often we can match a home caregiver to your senior’s individual needs and living situation within days of your initial contact with us. While we hesitate to rush and bypass our well-tested process in evaluating the optimum elder care experience for your loved one, we will work with you to make adjustments in more time-sensitive situations. Give us a call, and together we’ll figure out the next best steps for your senior’s continued well-being, safety and contentment.

"We hired Right at Home after a terrible experience with their competitors. We hired Right at Home to care for my 87-year old mother who has Alzheimer's. Since employing Lanette and her staff, my brother and I can sleep at night. Our hospice agency has been very impressed with the care Right at Home has been giving my mother. It's been a Godsend."

"You can only understand the hospice journey when you have to make it with your loved one. Lanette and her team know it well and she went above and beyond to help us through the difficult time of losing my beloved father. Each person that came to stay with us at my house had a special way about them that made me feel safe and comfortable doing things like sleeping through the night. Starting with Lanette, each employee is extremely professional and they truly love what they do. I can't imagine having made this journey with my family without the loving care of Lanette and her team to help us along the way. Highly recommend."

"I started using Right at Home in 2015 for my 92-year old father. Dad's long term care company recommended Right at Home. They have provided care for my father from 8AM to 10PM, 7 days a week. Their caregivers have all been caring, professional and reliable. Dad needed care 24/7 and Right at Home have been open and flexible with Dad's changing needs. I feel confident that he is in good hands."

"We had to place my mother in an assisted living facility. We did not realize how severe her dementia was. We had to have Right at Home take care of my mother for several weeks until we could get her in a nursing home facility with a Dementia Unit. Right at Home came in every day of the week for about 18 hours a day at the assisted living facility. My mother was scared and anxious. She never could have made through those weeks without the excellent care that was provided by the Right at Home staff. My mother is doing very well now. Thank you Right at Home for helping my mother and family get through those trying times."
