Our Mission

Put simply, our mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve. Of course, we recognize that everyone’s idea of “quality of life” is different, which is why it’s so important to us to make you an active part of your own care plan. We want you to be in the driver’s seat regardless of any limitations or challenges you’re facing.

Most of all, we believe aging isn’t just about staying healthy, safe and independent. It’s also about living well.

Right at Home Orland Park Owner Tracy Mikes

As an owner of Right at Home Orland Park, I am honored to help our clients age with dignity and comfort in their own home. We also provide care for seniors and adults who are recovering from surgery or injury or living with illness or other health limitations. I have firsthand experience with the challenges that families are facing as their loved ones need more assistance with activities of daily living.

Several years ago, I was privileged to help care for my father as he struggled with illness and aging, and have assisted my mother with her care needs. My personal experiences have given me insight into the value of exceptional home care.

After an extensive search for the “right” in-home care company, I was fortunate that Right at Home with the RightCare philosophy crossed my path. The core values that Right at Home fosters include integrity, collaboration and accountability, which all resonate with me. Right at Home is both personally and professionally rewarding as our team truly makes a difference in the lives of others.

Our Philanthropy

Globally, an estimated 70 million people with disabilities have no access to a wheelchair. Those who cannot walk must crawl or be carried to their destination. In collaboration with a network of like-minded partners, Free Wheelchair Mission has distributed more than 1 million wheelchairs to people with disabilities in 93 developing countries around the world, providing renewed dignity, independence and hope through the gift of mobility, at no cost to the recipient.

As an organization, Right at Home's work with Free Wheelchair Mission began in 2016 as the company looked for a partner that would help us further our mission of improving lives worldwide. To date, the Right at Home team's efforts have raised more than $400,000 that has funded over 5,000 wheelchairs, which were distributed through life-changing Vision Trips to Vietnam, Ecuador and Costa Rica.
