Recognizing Our Wonderful Right at Home Caregivers

Announcing December 2018's ...


Please join us in congratulating our December 2018 Caregiver of the Month, Bettye Ferguson!

Bettye is one of our live-in caregivers and works with her client for four full days per week. Bettye is dedicated to ensuring her client receives exemplary care, both physically and mentally. Her client is in a wheel chair and Bettye diligently encourages regular exercises to maintain his strength and mobility. Knowing that travel can be difficult for her client, Bettye reached out to the office for a list of home doctors so he can receive medical care at home, including physical therapy services. She also brings joy to her client daily by playing games with him, watching his favorite movies, and making his favorite meals. Bettye’s client and his family regularly praise Bettye for her dedication and the wonderful care she provides.

One of the many things our clients and office staff alike love about Bettye is her positive attitude and constant smile. She genuinely loves caring for people and does a wonderful job of it. And, as one of our best caregivers, Bettye never misses a clock-in or out, diligently turns in her care notes weekly, and keeps the office updated on changes in her client’s condition.

Bettye, a huge thank you for delivering the gold standard of care to your client and for being an outstanding caregiver.

As a reward for earning the Caregiver of the Month award, Bettye will be awarded a $100 bonus, 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 Kelly Whitaker, our December 2018 Team Player of the Month!

Kelly is another one of our fantastic live-in caregivers. She recently joined an existing live-in care team and agreed to a rotating weekend schedule to accommodate the existing care team members. Kelly’s client has dementia and she is skilled at handling difficult behaviors and situations that arise due to the dementia while always treating her client with patience and respect. She keeps her client’s care as her top priority and she doesn’t let the little things bother her.

The office staff and her client appreciate her positive attitude and respectfulness. Kelly has never called off a single shift and is always on-time. She also keeps the office informed of changes in her client’s condition and other issues so things can be handled appropriately and timely.

Kelly, thank you for upholding the gold standard of care and being part of our culture of excellence!

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


We would also like to congratulate our December 2018 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.

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.
