Phil Chandler, Owner

Phil Chandler- owner of Right at Home Ventura CountyPhil has fond memories growing up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Every Sunday his paternal grandmother (we called her “Grandmarie”) would visit after church for lunch and we would catch up on the activities of the week. She had a delightful sense of humor, telling the family the latest spicy joke she had heard recently. When Phil was in college, she began to have medical challenges, and ultimately developed severe cognitive impairment. In those days we called it Senile Dementia and not Alzheimer’s Disease, but that is probably what it was. Phil’s Mom became her primary caregiver, and he saw firsthand the effort and stress that family caregivers go through. When Grandmarie passed away she didn’t recognize any of her family and wasn’t able to feed or bathe herself. This foundational experience molded Phil’s view of elder care and the impact it has upon the family. He carries this experience with him as he performs assessments and hires and manages caregivers. He feels that this business is a calling, and strives to provide the best care to all Right at Home clients.

This is why he is so passionate to provide care to families experiencing Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias.

Seeking to empower and better the senior community in Ventura County, Phil Chandler became a Certifed Senior Advisor. Certified Senior Advisors have a broad-based knowledge of the health, social and financial issues that are important to seniors, and the dynamics of how these factors work together in seniors’ lives. 

Phil has worked in engineering management positions in Ventura County for the last 25 years. He holds advanced degrees in engineering and business.  His experience working with relatives needing long term care drew him to this calling.

Phil understands the desire of seniors to remain independent in their homes.  His desire is to offer an affordable, high-quality solution to those that need care in their home.  Additionally, he wants to give the family peace of mind that their loved one is being taken care of appropriately with respect and compassion.

He uses his technology background to apply new devices to help a senior live independently, safely, and with dignity. One of these devices is called the Smart Sole, a GPS tracking device for people with Alzheimer’s or Autism that wander and may not be able to find their way home. The Smart Sole sends a text message and email to a caregiver when your loved one leaves the house and the caregiver can find the person immediately using a map display on their phone.

The Ventura County Office of Right at Home is a locally owned and operated franchise office of Right at Home, Inc., a senior home care and staffing company providing care since 1995.  Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve.  We do that by providing high quality in-home caregivers to serve you.
