Non Medical Home Care Services

Nonmedical Home Care Can Help Your Senior Loved One

Dad is finishing up his chemotherapy and is a little weak. He could use help with meals and basic housekeeping until he regains his strength.

Mom remains in steady health for her 82 years and wants to stay in the house even though Dad is now gone. But some days she just gets so lonely.

Grandma is in an independent living apartment, but she needs rides to doctor appointments and to get her hair cut and colored. (She’s not giving up her favorite stylist after 40 years!) Grandma also enjoys her weekly outing to bargain shop.

Personal independence is important at any age, but especially for seniors who sometimes feel like they’ve lost other freedoms like driving, traveling alone or entertaining family and friends. With a little extra hand of a trained in-home caregiver, older adults can enjoy their day-to-day activities safely and confidently. A world-leading provider of nonmedical home care, Right at Home also gives family caregivers a respite break and chance to recharge.

With our comprehensive senior care services, Right at Home knows just how to help older adults live well and age well . . . right at home.

Why Use Nonmedical Care

Letting elders age in place can bring fear and uncertainty among family members who can’t regularly be on site with their loved one. Right at Home nonmedical home care ensures seniors maintain as much self-sufficiency as possible, while family members remain at ease knowing their senior is receiving personal, trustworthy care. And, all at a price that’s more affordable than care facilities or a visiting nurse.

Commonly Asked Questions About Nonmedical Care

Q. How will you find the right caregiver for my senior?

Once you contact us, your local Right at Home Boston North office begins a personal assessment of your loved one’s specific needs. We set up an initial in-home visit with your senior and your family members and we interact in-depth about what services would work best for what your elder needs. Next, we develop a Custom Care Plan just for your senior and work with you on any modifications. We then search our team of highly trained, bonded/insured caregivers to find the appropriate team member for your loved one. Matching details include your senior’s needs and interests and the relational compatibility of your loved one and our at-home care provider.

Q. What if my senior only needs a little assistance?

Not a problem at all. We are available for how many hours or days of the week your senior needs extra help. If your loved one only needs assistance with organizing the house and dusting and vacuuming once a week, we’re here to help. If your senior wants a walking companion three times a week, we’re here to help. Right at Home adult home care is flexible to fit the care that is needed and for how often you prefer.

Q. If we needed more specialty care, can you offer that?

We can always adjust your loved one’s Custom Care Plan as individual needs change. If your senior is hospitalized, we can provide more specialized nursing care during at-home recovery. If your loved one develops a serious illness or declines in cognitive ability, we would evaluate if your current Right at Home caregiver still is the best fit or whether we should turn to the skilled nursing skills of another well-matched caregiver.

Q. Are we locked into a long-term service contract?

Right at Home does not lock you into a long-term contract. Our exceptional home care speaks for itself. We can accommodate the type and length of in-home care your loved one needs, whether your family needs a couple hours of respite care or you are looking for multiple weeks of care for your loved one. Contact our office to explore the types of nonmedical services and care plans they may offer.

Q. How quickly can in-home service start?

Often we can match a home caregiver to your senior’s individual needs and living situation within days of your initial contact with us. While we hesitate to rush and bypass our well-tested process in evaluating the optimum elder care experience for your loved one, we will work with you to make adjustments in more time-sensitive situations. Give us a call, and together we’ll figure out the next best steps for your senior’s continued well-being, safety and contentment.

"Just wanted to thank you for all you have done to help Paul during my recent sudden disability. Jonathan is a TREASURE! He is very capable, very industrious, self-starter, as well as kind, gentle. The lady who filled in on Sunday, was that Theresa (or Rebecca)? She also is a good listener, very determined to do a good job and takes initiative like tidying up Hanneh's room. If Desiree is still out this Sunday we would be happy to have her back. The other lady who came Saturday morning was also perfect. God had answered our prayers for Hanneh to be well cared for during my recovery by these wonderful caregivers, and thru your finding the right staffing for Hanneh's needs. Here is my highest compliment, "I couldn't have done better myself!"

"Pauline is good to my mom. Pauline takes my mom to her hair appointment. She couldn't be better. I couldn't live without her. She actually cares for my mom, I know she does. She's had Mom over to her house for meals and stuff, and she does her hair. She goes to the store and does whatever Mom wants. We have a food card so she does the shopping for Mom. She makes sure that everything is fine and that Mom eats. She always quizzes me to make sure she ate and is asking questions and makes sure that everything is done."

"Dear Friends, I wish to convey my thanks and appreciation for Norma's help and assistance, while my regular caregiver, Michelle was on vacation, from Sunday, July 7, to Sunday, July 14. Michelle is hard to replace, but Norma exceeded my expectations. She is efficient, energetic, a great caregiver who is a joy to have close by and helping. I look forward to Norma coming back someday when Michelle takes off. Michelle is another super "special" caregiver - I am so fortunate! Thank you! 'Blessings for all"

"I like the flexibility and the ease of scheduling. They are always willing to jump in and help. I don't have to wonder if they will do something. They make sure she is changed and kept clean. They fix her lunch and will do light housework. It is nice to come home and see that the dishes are done. They are very quick to respond to schedule changes or if I need to change hours. I appreciate that they keep her engaged, sit with her, and talk with her."
