Right at Home Twin Cities Owners Bob and Paul

For many years Bob and Paul have felt a strong calling to serve the community in a more significant manner than their church and volunteer involvement. Both had lifelong experiences with seniors in need of assistance. Bob worked in a hospital/nursing home as an adolescent, and Paul provided companionship and chore services for an elderly widow through all of his teen years. Both have impacted the lives of elderly neighbors and employees as adults. This background combined with the further inspiration of Bob's mother, a retired nurse who worked as a companion in the industry, helped the two decide to investigate their ability to provide this type of care and assistance to a wider community on a full-time basis. After months of investigation, Right at Home became the clear choice. The Mission of improving the quality of lives of those we serve hit the core of what they were searching for.  Since 2001, they have been fulfilling that mission in the Twin Cities.

Prior to starting Right at Home Twin Cities, Bob and Paul spent the majority of their careers in management positions. Bob spent 17 years managing stores for Kwik Trip, Inc. a convenience store chain based in LaCrosse, WI. Most recently, Bob has worked in the accounting department at Barrett's Moving and Storage of Eden Prairie, MN. For the last 3 1/2 years, Paul had been a manager and consultant with BORN, a leading e-business consultancy headquartered in the Twin Cities. Previously, he worked as a staffing coordinator and operations manager for Jeane Thorne, Inc. a premier administrative staffing company headquartered in the Twin Cities. Paul graduated with a BA in Religion from Luther College in Decorah, IA and has completed coursework at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA and Clinical Pastoral Education at St. Mary's Hospital in Green Bay, WI.

Currently, in addition to operating Right at Home.  Paul and Bob are very involved in the community.

Paul serves as President of the National Parkinson Foundation of Minnesota, Treasurer of the Minneapolis Area Senior Workers Association, Board of Training to Serve, Board of Twin Cities Quorum, Minnesota Chapter of National Private Duty Association, Group Facilitator for the Alzheimers Association, and sings and serves on the Board of the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus.  Bob is an active volunteer at Allina Hospice.

Our History

During his years working as a hospital administrator, our founder Allen Hager watched many patients, especially seniors, leave the hospital and return home. But they did not necessarily return to health. Allen found that, once at home, a lot of his former patients were unable to care for themselves. He knew that with a little help, most of these people could lead healthy, happy lives in their homes. This became the idea for Right at Home.

After talking to dozens of families about the challenges they faced and what kinds of care would help, he became a certified nursing assistant to experience firsthand the needs of people who required professional assistance to continue living at home.

Today, with the help of Allen’s insights, Right at Home has grown to over 600 locations that serve tens of thousands of clients across the U.S. and around the world.

Our Philanthropy

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.
