Tim Petlin

Owner

Tim was born and raised in Los Angeles and has lived in Santa Monica and West Los Angeles for over 20 years. He graduated from Cal State-Northridge before attending grad school at UNC-Chapel Hill, earning two master’s degrees in Business and Health Administration. After spending over a decade working as Director of Operations for United Healthcare, he decided he had the experience to pursue a dream of owning a health care business and opened his Right at Home office in 2011.

Tim’s mother was a nurse and he has several siblings and extended family in the medical field, so he was always attracted to healthcare as a profession. He felt too disconnected from patient care while working for a large insurance company. Right at Home is a very fulfilling experience for Tim because he enjoys having more of a direct impact and seeing the results of helping people.

Tim’s family and community are very important to him.  His wife is a prominent Veterinarian in Santa Monica and his daughter is a student at Saint Monica Preparatory.

Tim believes in volunteering and giving back to the community. He and his office staff seek community outreach opportunities – everything from volunteering at assisted living centers, to participating in 5K run/walk fundraisers. Tim worked with Team in Training which trains participants for endurance events; in exchange the participants raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. For nearly 10 years he coached people on how to do triathlons. His motivation is helping people learn a new sport, get out of their comfort zone and at the same time raise money for a great cause. He’s coached more than 500 people who have raised over $3 million for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Anissa Arellanes

Client Care Manager

Anissa Arellanes was raised by an OR nurse and has been around healthcare her whole life. This perspective has helped her see and understand the multiple phases of care that our seniors can go through, which in turn has honed her empathy and understanding for them. Anissa brings over 5 years of geriatric care experience from assisted living environments to in-home care. Through the years, she has touched every aspect of home care. Her experience spans from basic reception to full-blown hands-on caregiving and up to upper management. With this accumulated knowledge and hands-on experience, she has built a solid foundation from the ground up.

Anissa not only has experience, but also has a personal drive to aid our senior population with her core belief that, "Our seniors can be easily overlooked and left behind, whether it's with a simple smile or a well-planned out care plan. My main goal is to see our seniors through eyes filled with empathy and care. As we age, our world becomes smaller and with care and understanding, I'd like to keep that world as wide and vast as we can for our seniors. As someone who has lost an elderly loved one, I wish for your loved ones to be cared for as if they were a part of my family. Care is not just how well you can take care of the body but also how we can nurture a person's soul. My goal is to ultimately elevate the human spirit through interactive care."

Anissa looks forward to serving all Right at Home clients with the same devotion, care, and support as she’s provided her own loved ones.

Isabella Paniagua

Human Resources Assistant/Recruiter

Isabella Paniagua  is our Human Resources Assistant who is dedicated to helping us find the right caregivers for the right clients. She has her degree in Psychology so she is able to interact with various people to help her place the right person in the right job.  Prior to working with us, she recruited nurses for another organization.

Isabella seeks to understand the needs of the caregivers and their unique skills. Because of this, we are better able to match these caregivers to our current or new clientele which allows us to provide the highest level of care. 

Isabella has a positive, cheerful and calm demeanor. This is exactly the kind of communication style we hope for from our caregivers. She is bilingual in Spanish which is also a plus in a city where there are numerous Spanish speaking caregivers and clients. As she continues to grow with the company, we look forward to expanding her role to include interacting more with our bilingual clients and caregivers, not just applicants.

Wiley Alexander

Field Supervisor

Wiley joined the team in 2014 as a Field Supervisor. He worked for many years in a large healthcare organization which is why this was such an easy transition for him. As a Field Supervisor, Wiley spends most of his time working with our current clients; checking in on their care and assessing any changing needs they may have. When he visits, he also ensures any protective supplies are readily available for both the client and caregiver such as gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, etc. It is our goal to keep our clients as safe and protected as possible in the environment they are in and Wiley is instrumental in doing so.

Wiley will also sometimes work directly with a client, although rare, these times ensure that he is in touch with what our caregivers go through so he can offer suggestions for improvement with both the client’s care and the caregivers skills. Wiley’s upbeat and positive attitude along with his infectious smile ensures our clients and caregivers feel welcomed and appreciated. He looks forward to serving all our clients and caregivers whether new or established.
