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!

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.
