Recognizing Our Wonderful Right at Home Caregivers

Announcing August 2019's ...


Please join us in congratulating our August 2019 Caregiver of the Month, Barbara Ostrowski!

You may remember seeing Barbara’s name last month as she was named our July Team Player of the Month.

Barbara continued to provide excellent care to her clients throughout August and became a full-time live-in caregiver! She spends a few days each week living at her client’s house, providing outstanding care for her, and continuing her shifts with another client the remaining days of the week. Her client’s daughter praised Barbara’s care and complimented how she engages with both her and her mother. They enjoy playing board games together and cheering on the Chicago Cubs! Barbara’s sole focus is on her clients and she engages with them with a positive attitude.

In addition to her regular clients, Barb also was an outstanding team player and covered 5, yes FIVE!, emergency call-offs in August! Barbara, a huge thank you to you for making your clients happy and healthy, mentally and physically!

As a reward for earning the Caregiver of the Month award, Barbara will receive a $100 bonus, be given Right at Home apparel, have her name engraved on the Caregiver of the Month plaque in our office, and receive company-wide recognition.


Please join us in congratulating our August 2019 Team Player of the Month, Melissa Conner!

Melissa provided care for several clients last month who needed round-the-clock care and spent many overnight shifts tending to each of their needs! Melissa has been with Right at Home for over three years and for over the last two years, she has been the primary caregiver for the same client.

This client required heavy personal care, transferring assistance, and companionship. His wife was at ease knowing that Melissa was there and trusted Melissa to care for her husband to give her respite. Sadly, her client recently passed away. Melissa was able to provide valuable end-of-life care and comfort to him and his wife in his final weeks. She truly was considered a member of this precious family. Melissa’s other client was appreciative of Melissa’s positive attitude and attentiveness during her overnight shifts with her. Her client appreciated that Melissa was always awake and alert when she needed assistance throughout the night. Melissa, thank you for upholding the gold standard of care!

As a reward for earning the Team Player of the Month award, Melissa will receive a $50 bonus and company-wide recognition.


We would also like to congratulate our August 2019 All-Stars, who will be awarded a $20 gift card to Meijer and receive company-wide recognition. Right at Home All-Stars are selected based on several factors, including excellence in regularly clocking in and out on time, not calling off shifts, and providing great care to clients. Total hours worked for the month and a willingness to cover shifts and be a team player are also considered.

Thank you to all of our Right at Home caregivers! Each one of you is a valuable part of our team that provides the “gold standard” in homecare to northwest Indiana seniors.

We are the Right People, Doing the Right Things, the Right Way, for the Right Reason


During my recovery from foot surgery, I had the BEST care takers who took care of both my Mom and I. Each person has their special talent and way of making us feel comfortable. If the need should ever arise, I will feel comfortable knowing Mom will get the wonderful care this company provides.
