Recognizing Our Wonderful Right at Home Caregivers

Announcing September 2018's ...


senior home care

Please join us in congratulating our September 2018 Caregiver of the Month, Dalores Lounds!

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.

Dalores’ outgoing and bubbly personality makes her a perfect match for her clients. Dalores is especially skilled when it comes to clients who have dementia. She possesses a natural talent for keeping the atmosphere calm and light, and completing all tasks, even at times that can prove to be difficult. She goes above and beyond keeping the office up to date with her client’s conditions, whether that be supplies they need in their homes, medications they are running low on, or just general changes.

One of our favorite things about Dalores is that she calls the office and sees if we need her while she has free time in between clients or on a day off! Like our best caregivers, Dalores rarely calls off her accepted shifts and never misses a clock-in or out and is diligent in turning in her care notes each week.

Dalores, 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, Dalores 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 September 2018 Team Player of the Month!

Kelly is one of our top live-in caregivers who provides nothing but excellent care for her client. Since she started with her client this summer, his physical strength and well-being has radically improved. His family has called the office multiple times to give praise for Kelly’s work ethic and patience. Kelly has also trained her client’s other caregivers and makes sure they have the knowledge they need before starting their first shifts. She regularly calls the office to get information that will help her client, whether it’s for medical supplies, or advice on how to handle a situation as his condition changes.

The office appreciates Kelly’s timely clock-ins and outs, her practice of not calling off her shifts, and her regular delivery of care notes. 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 September 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.
