About The Majors

John and Juanita Major began Right at Home Chatham, NJ in March of 2003. Dealing with aging family members over the years was an inspiration for the Majors to start a business that assists both seniors and the community that they live in. Both John and Juanita are longtime residents of Chatham and Madison, NJ and have been highly involved in their community through different service organizations and youth organizations, as their children grew up in Chatham. John is a Vietnam Army Veteran and is proud to say that Right at Home is approved by the Department of Veteran Affairs to provide services to eligible Veterans.
