Our Mission

Put simply, our mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve. Of course, we recognize that everyone’s idea of “quality of life” is different, which is why it’s so important to us to make you an active part of your own care plan. We want you to be in the driver’s seat regardless of any limitations or challenges you’re facing.

Most of all, we believe aging isn’t just about staying healthy, safe and independent. It’s also about living well.

Right at Home owner Jeanette Palmer

The owner of Right at Home Northwest Suburban Chicago, Jeanette Palmer, knows that caring for a loved one can be challenging. While trying to balance a career and raising a family, Jeanette was experiencing the challenges of arranging quality care for her aging mother firsthand. Based on her own experience, she realized there was a need for dependable non-medical and companionship services to help individuals live independently at home. After her mother’s passing, Jeanette opened a Right at Home Franchise to share her experience and help others in her community find quality care for their loved ones. For over ten years, Jeanette has been helping seniors remain independent in their homes.

Moved by her own experience, she decided to open a Right at Home Franchise in Algonquin to serve Northwest Suburban Chicago. For over 10 years, Jeannette has been helping seniors remain independent in their homes.

Our Philanthropy

Globally, an estimated 70 million people with disabilities have no access to a wheelchair. Those who cannot walk must crawl or be carried to their destination. In collaboration with a network of like-minded partners, Free Wheelchair Mission has distributed more than 1 million wheelchairs to people with disabilities in 93 developing countries around the world, providing renewed dignity, independence and hope through the gift of mobility, at no cost to the recipient.

As an organization, our work with Free Wheelchair Mission began in 2016 as we looked for a partner that would help us further our mission of improving lives worldwide. To date, our team’s efforts have raised more than $400,000 that has funded over 5,000 wheelchairs, which were distributed through life-changing Vision Trips to Vietnam, Ecuador and Costa Rica.
