Reta in Longview
Reta Griffin moved from New Mexico to Longview Texas two years ago due to health conditions. She and her husband have always lived private lives, always taking care of each other’s needs when situations occurred. In January 2017 Mrs. Griffin endured a fall that forced the couple to consider more assistance in the home.
“Our first caregiver was Trish. We had never used any services like this before, so I didn’t know what to expect. The doorbell rang as scheduled, I opened the door, and in walked this smiling lady like she had been here a million times before!”
Mr. Griffin says while giving my shoulder a playful grudge. Mr. Griffin opens up to us about life before Right at Home; “Things were getting harder, we are both getting older and it was obvious to me that if I wanted to keep her safe, I had to back off and let someone else help me take care of her. Trish came in and bonded with Reta immediately. It was obvious that she truly cared about her.”
Shortly after, Trisha received a promotion as the Longview area Care Manager. “I was worried and sad. I grew to love her and I didn’t want someone else to be sent out who didn’t have the heart she does.” Mrs. Griffin told us, “But then came Krysti, and she has been so amazing to me!”
Mrs. Griffin says she relies on Right at Home for her showers, preventing falls and “having someone to brighten her day”.
Both Mr. And Mrs. Griffin look forward to Krysti showing up for her shifts and say they cannot put into words how thankful and blessed they are to have her. The Griffins give Right at Home an “A++ in our book!!"
Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Griffin, for allowing us to help!

Ms. Brinson decided to do some research after having a bad experience with another company. She was on the hunt for an honest, dependable, consistent and friendly company to help her with her daily needs. While watching T.V. a Right at Home commercial came on and “I just couldn’t get it out of my head,” says Ms. Brinson.
Ms. Brinson’s daughter gave us a call June 23, 2016 and she started services with us three days later. She says she couldn’t be more pleased! “Having Mandy (Caregiver, pictured on the right) allows me to get things done that others might take for granted. I get my laundry done. She helps me clean out my fridge, and best of all, she has a heart of gold!”
“If I see one of my friends struggling with something, before I have to open my mouth Mandy is on her way down the hall to lend a hand. Right at Home has been so helpful! I can call Trish (Care Manager, pictured on the left) with any question and she always calls me back,” says Ms. Brinson.
Before becoming a Right at Home client, Ms. Brinson was having falls several times a week. We are proud to say, she has not had a single fall since she has been with us!
When asked what her favorite qualities of Right at Home were, she responded, “Honesty! And taking the time to place a caregiver in my home that I have grown to love. I wish everyone could have a Mandy, but not mine!!”
