Our owner, Beth Sholom, has a long history of caring about and for the elderly community. Her mother worked for 35 years as an assistant to the executive director of a nursing home in Brooklyn, a short distance from Staten Island where Beth grew up.
Both of her grandparents eventually had to live in a nursing home Her grandmother lost both of her legs due to diabetes and needed extra care and moved to the nursing home and Beth’s grandfather, who had lived with other family members, fell and broke his collar bone. He did not want to live away from his wife any longer so even though they were in separate beds on separate floors in the nursing home, they were together. Beth always relates their experience to the Kathy Mattea song “Where Have You Been”
"They'd never spent a night apart For 60 years she heard him snore Now, they're in a hospital In separate beds on different floors Where have you been? I've looked for you forever and a day Where have you been? I'm just not myself when you're away."
Beth’s experiences with her mother working at the nursing home and her grandparents living there inspired her to always want great care for seniors. She became an elder care attorney with a degree in special education, so she could advocate for both the elderly and people living with handicaps.
Beth’s passion has always been to ensure that her clients received better care than her grandparents had, and she has worked tirelessly for many years to make sure that happens. Recently Beth’s father fell and had brain surgery. As he recovers, it reinforced Beth’s commitment to make sure that her clients receive the same type of care from Right at Home of Central New Jersey that she wanted for her own father. Beth’s motto and belief has always been and will always be that we care for your family as we would for our own!
Beth obtained her Certified Assisted Living Administrator license (CALA) in 2014 in order to understand how she can work with assisted living facilities and serve her clients better. She is also a member of the New Jersey Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, the Arthritis Foundation, Caring Connections of New Jersey and the Middlesex Consortium for Senior Care. Her staff members and her children team up every year to participate in the Walk to end Alzhiemer’s.
Right at Home of Central New Jersey is proud to announce that the Smash Out Alzheimer’s Foundation has been established as the official charity of Right at Home of Central New Jersey. Our Owner and Executive Director, Beth Sholom, is the Founder and CEO of the Smash Out Alzheimer’s Foundation.
For many years, Beth Sholom has advocated and raised money for various Alzheimer’s charities in order to find a cure for Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases.
Because so many of Right at Home of Central New Jersey’s past and present clients suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, Beth Sholom has always been passionate about finding a cure for this insidious disease. She decided to form a 501c3 tax-exempt organization to be able to raise funds for Alzheimer’s-related organizations on an ongoing basis all year long. We are proud that Beth’s dream has been realized and we have received designation for the Smash Out Alzheimer’s Foundation to continue our fundraising efforts until a cure is found!

Right at Home of Central New Jersey is proud to highlight our Human Resources Coordinator, Donell, as someone who embodies what our motto is: our team members are family and we care for our clients the way we’d care for our own family members.
Donell came to work with us about a year ago and has done a great job in every way. Not only is she a valuable part of our office team, she took the home health aide class which allows her to not only fill in should we have a caregiver callout but also know the skills and talents that potential caregivers who want to work with us need to know.
Donell also recruited her best friend, Dawn, to come work with us as our client care coordinator. She also encouraged both her mother, Nikki, and her sister, Brielle, to both become companion caregivers with us.
Brielle is also taking the home health aide class to become a certified home health aide (CHHA). Once she does that, she’ll become our receptionist as well as our Executive CHHA which will allow her to fill in if an emergency occurs and one of our regular caregivers cannot go to their client’s home that day, as well as dropping off gloves and other supplies to caregivers and drive live-in caregivers to their assignments.
Donell has created a true mission moment for Right at Home of Central New Jersey by encouraging her family members and her friend to help us provide the care that our senior clients so richly deserve.
We’re very proud to have Donell, Nikki, Dawn, and Brielle all be part of our extraordinary Right at Home of Central New Jersey team.
