Recognizing Our Wonderful Right at Home Caregivers

Announcing February 2019's ...


Please join us in congratulating our February 2019 Caregiver of the Month, Valerie Mallette!

Valerie stood out last month for not only working every single day but also for working over 200 hours total! On most days, Valerie has numerous clients and goes straight from one shift to the next. One of her clients was admitted to rehabilitation earlier this year. Valerie has continued providing quality care and companionship to this client during her recovery and often after she has completed shifts with other clients.

In addition to her regular clients, Valerie kindly accepted shifts with 3 brand new to her clients. Some clients have dementia, while others need hands-on, personal care. Valerie uses her vast amount of caregiving knowledge and personal care skills to provide outstanding care for every single client she serves and is regularly praised by her clients. In fact, the spouse of one client recently told our office staff that they can never take Valerie off the case!

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

As a reward for earning the Caregiver of the Month award, Valerie 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 Angela Walker, our February 2019 Team Player of the Month!

She is especially deserving of this award as she has become a “Team Player” for the office staff. While juggling overnights with her client, Angela covered several shifts with a client last month who needed some heavy personal care, including some challenging transfers.

Furthermore, Angela is approaching her 4-year anniversary for Right at Home this May! We are truly lucky to have a caregiver so committed to caring for others and keeping the office updated on any changes in her clients’ conditions. She is dependable, always responds to messages, and helps her clients to the fullest of her abilities. Angela, 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, Angela will receive a $50 bonus and company-wide recognition.


We would also like to congratulate our February 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.

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.
