Albert Eshoo - Owner

A native of Westchester County, Albert Eshoo earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism, marketing and American history from New York University. Upon graduation, Albert began a career in financial services with Morgan Stanley, where he spent the next 25 years of his professional career. In addition to working on Wall Street, Albert dedicated his evenings toward earning his MBA in finance from Fordham University.

His work with Morgan Stanley led Albert to work in Hong Kong for six years. After getting married in 1999, Albert and his wife, Joyce Barocas, resettled in New York City in 2003.

Albert’s personal experience with caring for a senior

“My aunt and uncle who live in Westchester are now in their 80s. My uncle had a hip replaced but waited so long to receive surgery that he had to go into a rehab facility to prep for surgery. My aunt is in the beginning stages of dementia. My sister and I are their main support system. Helping them has been an eye-opening and educational experience. This process highlighted for us how important it is for people to stay in their homes as long as possible,” says Albert Eshoo.

In 2014, He and his wife decided to launch a new career providing support to families who need extra assistance in caring for their loved ones; they opened a Right at Home Office in Lower Manhattan. “I’ve loved Manhattan since I was just a kid. It is tremendously rewarding to help people stay here and take advantage of all that it has to offer for as long as they can,” said Albert.

Besides work, Albert enjoys cycling, sea-kayaking and playing squash in New York City. He has also been a dedicated volunteer with organizations such as New York Squash, Heartshare, New York Cares and StreetSquash: An Urban Enrichment Program.
