Jim Ryan, Owner
As a United States Navy veteran and former International Business Machines (IBM) employee, Jim Ryan found his most fulfilling jobs involved helping people work through challenging problems. He opened a Right at Home in home care agency to help fellow veterans and families who need to find day to day help for aging relatives and adults with disabilities.
Jim was moved by the ordeal he had gone through with his own mother, who at age 77 was diagnosed with a massive brain tumor and died 6 months later. This event was made tolerable by the fact that his sister , a registered nurse (RN) , was able to provide personal care and support during his mother's final months. He realized that many people don't have friends or family able to provide dedicated day to day personal care for their aging or ill loved ones in a comfortable, familiar environment.
Jim relocated to York county in 2007. He and his family currently live in the Clover area.
Prior to opening his business providing professional caregiving services for adults, Jim worked for IBM for over 30 years, and also served in the Navy. He enjoyed traveling the world with the navy, in particular his time spent among small villages in South America.

Rebecca Gilreath, Marketing Representative
Rebecca is a native Carolina Girl but she lived all over the United States before finally coming home to the Carolinas for good in 2016. She chose the home care field to help others navigate the often confusing landscape of aging in place. After her own experiences in caring for her Mom during her battle with cancer, her Dad’s journey to the end through Alzheimers and her husband’s ongoing fight with Prostate Cancer she feels she’s uniquely qualified to help clients make the best decisions for their situation with experience only gained from life experience. Outside of work you can find her and her husband cheering on their favorite Sports teams, playing with their fur babies or visiting their now-grown children in Baltimore and Asheville. She’s glad to be part of the Right @ Home family and looks forward to helping you or your loved ones age in the place you call home.
