Providing the RightCare starts with the RightPeople
Meet the Team
Tracy Mikes, Owner
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.
As the care manager I am responsible for making sure the client and their family have the best experience in any situation. I started with Right at Home 7 years ago as a caregiver. I had many great experiences with seniors and helped improve their quality of life. I gained insight as the after hours coordinator making sure the client and caregiver needs were met any hour of the day or night. Having experienced several aspects of this business allows me to make a difference and help our clients live a purposeful life. "The meaning of life is to find your gift; the purpose of life is to give it away".
As a Care Coordinator, I am engaged with both the caregivers and clients to provide the best service to our client and their families. Being the daughter of aging parents that live 500 miles away, I can understand the need for great communication and making sure the Right at Home caregiver is someone I would want in my own parents home. Knowing that I can make a difference in someones life by providing service to a loved one near or far is quite fulfilling. My other role in the office is providing billing to our valued clients and paychecks to our hardworking caregivers.
My name is Charles Carrell and my main role here at Right at Home is Human Resources . I have loved taking care of the elderly since I was young. My past positions had incorporated hiring employees and being an agency caregiver for seven years. I'm excited to blend my two experiences together and impact the lives of Right at Home seniors every day. There is nothing more fulfilling than to make a perfect match with a caregiver and a Right at Home client. "Teamwork makes the dream work".
