The Importance of Community

As an in-home care provider, we understand seniors' connections and relationships are key to living vital lives as they age. Likewise, we know as a company that having strong connections and relationships in the community is key to ensuring seniors get the resources, education, and care they need.


Summer Kick Off!!!

Nothing like a good ol' fashion cookout to kick off the summer. Right off the grill hotdogs, juicy hamburgers, potato salad, baked beans, chips, and dip……plus WATERMELON!! Who can resist ice cold watermelon!

We had a great day cooking, eating, socializing with our friends at South West Mansion Oklahoma City. Thank you so much for allowing Right at Home be a part of your Summer Kick Off!

Caregiver Development Across the Community

As the top private home care agency in Oklahoma City, Right at Home is committed to continuous caregiver development. This week we spent time with senior caregivers and staff from Hefner and Southwest Manions in Oklahoma City, honing and developing skills that help identify possible effects of dementia. Putting yourself in their shoes while trying to function through activities of daily life can be sad and eye opening. In the next 30 years the number of Americans age 65 and older with Alzheimer's dementia may grow to 13.8 million. It’s important that we know how to care for our aging community!

Thank you, Hefner and SW Mansion’s, for allowing us the use of your staff and community!

For over a year now we have been feeding quarters to the RAH/Hefner Mansions PIGGY BANK when calling Bingo! The first number called is the PIG number. Every time that PIG number is called I add 50 cents to the piggy bank. To win the bank you must have a BINGO on the PIG number. I’m happy to announce on Wednesday we had a BIG PIG Winner taking home almost $20.00 in quarters home!! Thank you Hefner Mansions for allowing Right at Home-OKC be a part of such a fun group to call BINGO!

Virtual Walk Team Thank You to Our Virtual Walk Team!

On Saturday, Aug. 15th, Right at Home Oklahoma City was proud to join the largest event in our city dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Parkinson's families. It is more than just a fundraiser; it’s an opportunity to come together to raise awareness and celebrate the lives of the more than 15,000 Oklahomans living with Parkinson’s Disease. The Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma "Rally Walk and 5K" supports the work the foundation does to inspire hope and transform life for Parkinson patients and families in Oklahoma. As an organization operating solely in Oklahoma, 100% of donations will stay in state to provide programs and services to local families.

Right at Home Oklahoma City's team did the Virtual Walk at our office. The Drive Thru Parade offered important information, plus festivities, fundraising, and fun! Matthew Morton, Development Director for the Parkinson’s Foundation, served as DJ and the official 'Acceptor of Donations.' A good time was had by all as Bruce McIntyre, Executive Director for the Parkinson's Foundation, mc’d the event. Erica Portell from Ballet Oklahoma and her daughter provided the dance moves! Erica is a regular volunteer who leads 'Dance for Parkinson’s' activities for the Parkinson’s Foundation. Right at Home Oklahoma City gives a tip-of-the-hat to the 'Drive Thru Parade' leaders (the Cooks), parade event sponsors, Virtual Walk organizers, and all of the great supporters of the Foundation's activities for holding top-notch events!

50+ Better Living Expo in Oklahoma City

Right at Home-OKC, Crystal Self, Greg Self, Jamie Baade, Kimber Horst, along with Rebecca Vieth of Right at Home- Edmond, join forces for the 50+ Better Living Expo in Oklahoma City on June 19th.

50+ Better Living Expo

This one-day event featuring over 150 exhibitors plus seminars from experts in health & wellness, nutrition, finance, technology, travel, home healthcare, assisted living, and much, much more!

In addition: It was a honor and a privilege to meet a true WWII to hero, Mr. Raymond Duncan, while attending the 50+Better Living Expo.

Staff Sgt. Raymond Duncan served as an Air Force crew chief mechanic while stationed in England during World War II. At 97 years old, memories fade. For Duncan, his memories from WWII are vivid. Duncan still dreams about the day in 1944 when a buzz bomb went off over his base a second too late, sparing his life. “It was a quick, ‘tatatatatat,’ when the engine on that buzz bomb was firing,” the veteran said. “When I came back and worked at Tinker Air Force Base for 27 years, I hear one of those engines fire and chills ran through me.” Duncan’s crew, the 487th Bomb Group, led the largest air raid during the war. He said 235 members didn’t make it back. “Nobody tried to make friends because you didn’t know who was coming back and who wasn’t,” he said. Duncan received a Presidential Unit Citation and Good Conduct Ribbon, among other honors. “Had we not won the war, we had lost that war, I wouldn’t be here and neither would you,” he said.
