Right at Home St. Charles Owner Kirsten Pahde
Throughout her life, Kirsten Pahde’s grandfather was a constant presence, a constant joy and a valued friend. After his passing, when Kirsten’s grandmother needed care, Kirsten watched her own mother struggle with juggling a full time job and attending to the needs of an ailing parent. Kirsten felt helpless at times, knowing that she was unable to contribute as much as she wanted to her grandmother’s care, given her obligations as a full time employee, full time spouse and full time parent.
In 2007, Kirsten found the solution to the problem she faced and that is faced by so many families when she and her friend, Peggy Langdon, joined the number one home care franchise in the world, Right at Home. Since then, Right at Home of St Charles, has served over 1000 families! Right at Home of St Charles has been named Provider of Choice as well as Employer of Choice by HomeCare Pulse and has been voted the best Home Care Company in St Charles County multiple times. Peggy retired in June, 2016. As a Certified Senior Advisor, Kirsten continues their quest to improve the quality of life for those we serve.
Right at Home of St. Charles provides in-home care and assistance to seniors and disabled adults enabling them to live independently wherever they call home. Kirsten has led her team to be the proud recipient of the Provider of Choice, Employer of Choice and Leader in Excellence for 2017 by HomeCare Pulse. Caring.com has also awarded her team, the Caring Star of 2017. These awards are so rare and Right at Home is the only in home care in Missouri to receive Leader in Excellence and one of there in the state to be a Caring Star.
Kirsten and husband, Bruce, have three children, William, Andrew, and Jenna and two puppies, Oscar, and Lady. Kirsten enjoyed her position as CFO in her family’s nationwide newspaper marketing business for 20 years prior to starting Right at Home and her experience with her family’s company along with growing up watching both parents operate their own businesses has shown her that with hard work and perseverance, anything is possible. Kirsten feels that Right at Home's mission to serve the Senior, Veteran & disabled adult communities is fully in line with her own.
Kirsten’s close relationships with her grandparents and watching them struggle through years of physical and mental challenges were driving factors in realizing the need for home care in this community. The mission of Right at Home is to make a difference in the lives of those they serve by providing compassionate caregivers who assist with activities of daily living, household chores, transportation, and companionship, following a plan customized to the needs of your loved one.
