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 St. Charles, has served over 1000 families! Peggy retired in June, 2016, while 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 best in the industry, receiving Home Care Pulse’s Employer of Choice Award six years in a row, Provider of Choice Award six years running, and the Leader in Excellence Award five years in a row — the only company in Missouri to achieve this feat more than twice. The Right at Home St. Charles team is also a multi-year Caring Star and Caring Super Star Award winner from Caring.com.
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.
