Rebecca Gilbert-Johnson

Rebecca Gilbert-Johnson is the owner of Right at Home in Tolland.  Rebecca is a life-long resident of Connecticut and lives in Tolland with her three children and fiancé.  Rebecca’s educational and professional background have prepared her to provide exceptional in-home senior care services through Right at Home in the Northeast corner of Connecticut.

Rebecca graduated from the University of Connecticut, School of Nursing in 1997.  After graduation she worked in a long-term care facility before accepting an opportunity to join Saint Francis Hospital’s surgical fellowship nursing program.   Rebecca worked tirelessly to provide exceptional care to patients undergoing scheduled and emergency open heart and vascular procedures.    She was committed to working as part of surgical teams at Saint Francis Hospital and Hartford Hospital before advancing her career as a surgical nurse traveler.  Most recently Rebecca has had the opportunity to be a part of surgical teams at Tuft’s, Boston Medical Center, and Lahey Clinic.

During her career one thing has remained constant, Rebecca’s passion for providing quality care to those in need.  Rebecca’s interest in home based senior care services arose after caring for her grandparents for many years.  She has witnessed various levels of care and understands family expectations when looking for home based senior services. All elders deserve the best care and Rebecca intends to care for those in her community as if they were own. She understands first- hand the struggles and difficulties every family faces when taking care of a loved one.  Through this occurrence she observed a real-life testimony to the rewards excellent home care can bring to a family.  This experience coupled with her clinical background has forged a business that is committed to providing safe, compassionate care to seniors while giving family peace of mind.

Rebecca extends her dedication to the community serving as a member of the Tolland Community Chamber of Commerce, the local ELKS Lodge # 1359, and the Home Care Association of America.

Janice LaPointe

Director of Operations

Hi, my name is Janice A. LaPointe and I have resided in Tolland County for over 30 years. I have over two decades of experience in the Acute Rehab and Long-Term Acute Rehab setting.  In that time, I excelled in assessing functional abilities through activities of daily living, setting tailored goals for improved functionality, and meticulously executing care plans to facilitate patient’s return to home. I find joy in helping those individuals regain their autonomy within their communities.

I take pride in being a mother of two children and cherish this role immensely. As well, I am newly remarried to a loving and supportive husband. With a newly acquired real estate license in both Massachusetts and Connecticut I have had many opportunities to assist those looking to start a new chapter in their lives through buying or selling their homes. I am embarking on a fresh chapter as Director of Operations at Right at Home of Tolland.

I am excited to merge my compassion and expertise to positively impact the elder population to enable them to stay in their homes and age in place when possible. As someone who deeply values the comfort and well-being of our loved ones, I have a unique understanding of the importance of aging in place and providing quality services within the home.

My personal experience with my aging parents has fueled my passion for creating safe and nurturing environments that allow individuals to maintain their independence while receiving the support they need. I am committed to spreading awareness about the significance of assistive services and advocating for solutions that enhance the lives of seniors and their families
