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.

In-Home Care and Assistance in Grayslake, IL

Right at Home Grayslake Owner Mike Steiner

At my core, I believe in emphasizing quality at all levels of care. We started our Home Care Agency in 2013 and have grown to be recognized as one of (if not) the top Agency in Lake County – this is per Home Care Pulse and Caring.com. It’s all about the quality of the people we hire and their values.

After I was liberated from two decades of the corporate "rat race" I did some soul searching and realized I loved helping others. I found that helping others was not just a good thing to do overall but I finally found my calling. I love what I do and don’t call this “work” at all. The team we have is absolutely the best. So very proud of everyone who makes us who we are. Our mission truly resonates: To Improve The Quality of Life For Those We Serve. How can you beat that!

Since I started Right at Home, I think it has given me a new purpose in life. It has helped me build a stronger bond with my son. I’ve learned never to judge and I think most important that each day is a blessing and to share with others that as we age we don’t need to restrict ourselves and that so much is possible with a little extra help. For years as a Navy Veteran, I didn’t think much about it but now as I meet other Veterans, I feel proud and it’s so awesome to hear about others who have also served.


Mike's professional accomplishments, service in the US Navy, and life experiences instilled in him valuable skills and perspectives. His dedication to customer service AND getting the job done right, uniquely qualifies him for Right at Home.

As a 20+ year career at Motorola as a Project Manager managing multi-million dollar projects locally and around the globe, Mike's life experiences in working with all sorts of different people has shaped and helped him finally find my passion – helping others. Prior to Motorola, Mike served in the US Navy gaining skills in discipline and problem solving that are critical to running a top-quality agency.

Mike is very active in his community. He serves and has served on numerous Boards including AgeGuide (local Area Agency on Aging) Board Member and Legislative Committee; Board Member of the Illinois Continuity of Care (Lake/McHenry Chapter); Board Member and Legislation Co-Chair of the Illinois Home Care Association of America; and past Board Member of ExtraCare (adult day care - Alzheimer’s or other Dementias).

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, Right at Home's work with Free Wheelchair Mission began in 2016 as the company looked for a partner that would help us further our mission of improving lives worldwide. To date, the Right at Home 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.
