Recognizing Our Wonderful Right at Home Caregivers

Announcing October 2018's ...


caregiver of the monthPlease join us in congratulating our October 2018 Caregiver of the Month, Valerie Mallette!

You may remember Dalores as our TPOM in both April and June! Dalores had numerous clients throughout September, and added a new client to her already busy schedule.

Valerie was named Team Player of the Month in March of this year and has been named an All-Star every month this year going back to April. She worked nearly every day in October with multiple clients. One of her regular clients was hospitalized and sent to a rehabilitation center for a couple months. Valerie spent her time picking up extra shifts with her clients and covering emergency shifts for new ones. She has repeatedly been praised by her clients and their families for her work ethic and dependability, and we always know we can count on Valerie to complete every shift she accepts.

Like our best caregivers, Valerie never misses a clock-in or out and is diligent in turning in her care notes each week. 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 Paula Nebel, our October 2018 Team Player of the Month!

Paula is one of our newer caregivers but has already built up an impressive reputation! She has covered several emergency shifts, and always with a positive attitude. One of Paula’s clients requires special care because of her dementia, and although the client was resistant to any type of care in the beginning, and the client’s family was nervous about how everything would go, Paula has made a world of difference. Now, Paula and her client have developed a special bond, and her client’s daughter is astonished at the improvement she’s seen in her mom’s life.

Like all our best caregivers, Paula drops off her care notes each week and updates the office on all her clients’ conditions regularly. Paula, 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, Paula will receive a $50 bonus and company-wide recognition.


We would also like to congratulate our October 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.
