Right at Home Valley Oaks - Elk Grove, CA has yet not published prices.
Right at home was the second service we used when my mother's memory care issue became more pronounced. She was experiencing sundowner's syndrome and had begun wandering. We started with about 6 hours a day, which was expanded to 9 hours a day and we used Right At Home Valley Oaks for a little over a month. The caretaker had the perfect temperament and connected strongly with my mother. She engaged my mother in conversation, card playing, and the two of them went shopping together. We couldn't have asked for a more loving person. She was able to take some of the stress away from this difficult situation. Because the Alzheimer's Disease had escalated, we've moved my mother into a memory care community. We appreciate all the kindness provided by Right At Home Valley Oaks.
Right at Home was founded by Allen Hager. For many years, Allen worked in health care as a hospital administrator. While in the hospital environment, he watched patients – especially seniors – leave the facility and return home, but not necessarily return to health. Once home, a lot of his former patients were unable to care for themselves.
Allen knew that with a little help, most of these people could lead healthy, happy lives in their own homes. But he also knew that there were very few companies that offered this kind of help. Allen didn’t just jump in and start a franchising company, however.
First, he talked to dozens of families to understand the different kinds of challenges they faced and what kind of care would help. Then he became a certified nursing assistant so he could experience the needs of people who were still living in their home but who needed some professional assistance.
In 1995, Allen started Right at Home in Omaha, Nebraska. Five years later, he started branching into other regions of the country by carefully selecting franchisees who shared his passion for caring for those in their community.
Right at Home now has more than 200 offices that serve thousands of clients across the United States. We also have operations in the United Kingdom and Brazil.
