A Calling To Meaningfully Improve People's Lives

Jon and Katrina Lawson opened a Right at Home office to serve the South Bend area. After graduating from Notre Dame Law School, Jon practiced as an attorney in New York City before returning to South Bend and continuing his 18-year legal career as a partner at SouthBank Legal. As an attorney, Jon represented many corporate clients in the medical field, including hospitals, clinics, and medical device manufacturers. Despite enjoying the practice of law, Jon felt called to work directly with individuals and help improve their lives in meaningful ways.

Katrina loved being a stay-at-home mom and raising their three young children. Previously, she worked in New York City at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Breast Cancer Center as a clinic assistant and then pursued a marketing career. Katrina always intended to return to the workforce in a way that would positively impact the local community.

Helping seniors remain and thrive in their homes struck a chord with Jon and Katrina. Both of their grandparents received loving and supportive in-home care that improved their grandparents’ longevity and quality of life. They are also cognizant of the struggles and challenges often present when caring for loved ones. This is especially so given the competing demands on family members’ time or when aging loved ones live far away, such as Katrina’s parents who remain in New York and Jon’s parents who spend time in Michigan and Texas.

Jon and Katrina are proud and excited to bring Right at Home to the area and provide peace of mind to local seniors and their family members.

Person-Centered Home Care With Compassion And Dignity

Jon shares the reasons he opened Right at Home South Bend, and what drives his passion for homecare. Family, whether by blood or by love, is the glue that holds all of us together as we navigate our aging journeys. There is an authenticity to the relationships made among clients, client families, and their Right at Home care team. It's the human connection with an empathetic helping hand that brings fulfillment to so many in senior care.

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.

Our Philanthropies

Right at Home’s mission is “to improve the quality of life for those we serve,” and expanding our mission to serve others around the world is truly a pleasure. We support many organizations that help people live independently.

Free Wheelchair Mission

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, our work with Free Wheelchair Mission began in 2016 as we looked for a partner that would help us further our mission of improving lives worldwide. To date, our 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.

Right at Home offices support Josiah’s House in the Dominican RepublicRight at Home offices support Josiah’s House in the Dominican Republic

Josiah’s House

Over half of the children living in the Dominican Republic live below the poverty line and can be found on the streets in at-risk surroundings in order to make money. Josiah’s House runs family-style homes that provide vulnerable boys and girls with the basic necessities, education, life skills, and family home atmosphere needed to succeed.

Recently, 70 Right at Home offices came together to support Josiah’s House by supplying everyday items for the children of Josiah’s House. The group delivered suitcases full of clothing, personal hygiene items, toys, and other supplies.
