They could actually have someone who will make the effort to walk with him. I like that they are local. They are always answering the phone when I call.

I cannot think of anything to improve or how they could have made it easier. The caregivers could be more friendly. They did do everything we asked, but the way they did it was an issue.

They need the knowledge of how to handle basic first aid. They could have better selection of personnel.

They could make sure the caregivers they hire get here on time and get here period without having to get a substitute at the last minute. I don't know how to run a company, so I don't know how they could improve, but I get upset on weekends when I have various caregivers that don't know me and sometimes don't know what they're doing. During the week, I have great caregivers.

My husband is disabled and it helps me to go do things that he can't do. They have always done what they say they are going to do. They are on time and extremely helpful.

They helped by sitting with him and talking to him. They provided companionship. I really liked that they keep us with the good caregivers that were on time.

The client is hard to lift on my own, and I can't handle it by myself, so them coming in helps in that way. They do what they say they will do for you.

They are all friendly and courteous! They are conscientious and well meaning. They need to work on their communication among themselves. Occasionally I see lapses in coordination. Sometimes the caregivers say they will do something but they never come back because of how they are structured.

The services have allowed me to have a life. I really didn't use them long, I don't know how they could improve. I used them a few nights and didn't have any problems.

They've made my life easier by being wonderful with my grandmother. She has several issues that pop up on a routine basis. There were some issues at the beginning. The communication skills in within the business needs to be better.

I have no training in caregiving for the elderly, so I would not feel comfortable doing the bathing, and they do that for us. It is a weight off of my mind. They have been very reliable and consistently good.

It was very helpful. They can make sure the workers can do the work. Some of the caretakers were fine and Melisa was great. They just need to make sure that they know what to do.

I am a current client of this provider

I would like our caregiver to come on a regular basis instead of sending us a different one every time. I didn't like having to reexplain to every caregiver. We had some issues at first. We have some wonderful caregivers, but there have been some in the past I didn't feel comfortable leaving with my wife.

They do psychical activities like bathing and so forth. They could have more time available rather than just the two days out of a month.

By Geraldine C_5

My aunt was in assisted living and we were desperate to find someone to come. The impact is that they saved us. With COVID-19, they would not let us stay with her. We were in a critical situation. I like their ability to find companions during the Christmas holidays.

It turned out that they showed up after the time for them to be there, so I called and tried to track them down. They need to improve their booking process.

Provider Response

Thank you for letting us know the caregiver arrived late and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We have an alert system in place to let us know if our caregiver is ten minutes late through our scheduling and clock-in software. An office person would have been notified automatically but as you can imagine, sometimes those alerts can come at the same time. In the future, we recommend allowing extra time if there is a specific time to leave for an appointment, procedure or to leave home for an event. I apologize that the caregiver was running late. As a reminder, clients are only billed for actual time there, not scheduled time. If you’d like to discuss further, please do not hesitate to give us a call in the office. Beau Green, President

It was nice not having to do the night shifts. Some of their caretakers were excellent like Chuckie and Pamela but some of them were poor and would fall asleep at night so my father would get up and wander.

My mom couldn't communicate very well and was pretty much wheelchair-bound. The caregivers at Right at Home were there for her while I was gone, which I feel was great for her. I would recommend Right at Home because of the quality of care and how well they worked with me to provide the care for my mother. For the last 6 months they cared for her during COIVD, they kept her safe and restricted their interactions.

The services were helpful in terms that it proved somebody to be there when were need them to be there, but it was bare minimum. The quality of the caregivers needs to be improved.

Provider Response

We appreciate all opportunities to improve. Thank you for the feedback. During our in-take process, it all starts with a care plan that is ‘housed’ in the environment where the client lives: providing the Right People, with the Right Mission, the Right Approach and the Right Services. We do take a more proactive approach to making sure we are accomplishing everything is done that is expected of our team members prior to them leaving. We believe this approach will address future issues related to quality of care. Thank you again for the feedback. We take our accredited by the Joint Commission, the highest standard of care in the healthcare industry, seriously and we see this as an opportunity to improve.

We really like the people Right at Home Birmingham; they're really wonderful. The caregivers come and walk with our dad upstairs. He has a big water bottle in his bedroom and in his den, and they fill them up with water and ice, they make his coffee, they fix him some oatmeal or cereal, and they take out his trash. Whatever we need them to do, they do it. My mom passed away and they were really helping out a lot with her, too. One thing we like is that they don't have a four-hour minimum because they have an office there. So if you only need their help for 15-20 minutes or half an hour, you can have them for just that short amount of time. For my mom, there were times when she needed their nurse to come for an emergency, and she was able to come right away. We paid them weekly and we didn't have problems with billing. We've had three to four different caregivers and we adore every single one of them; they're all wonderful.

In the time that they come, I'm able to get what I need done. My husband does not like when there is a new caregiver so I have to stay. My use with them is very little because I'm the primary caregiver.

The most helpful part has been the people coming in every day to clean up the beds, change the beds, wash the linen, fold it, dry it and put it away. I like that they are friendly and hard working.

By Tommy H_1

I am a current client of this provider

I think she works other jobs for Right at Home and there are some days she can't come. She has more medical knowledge than most caregivers. Chances are I'm going to have a second surgery and odds are that I'll need a second caregiver for me. They can actually have more people available to work. I've been trying to get a second caregiver to be here for me. The permanent caregiver is very good but when she can't be here I don't have anyone that I can feel like I trust.

Occasionally someone will work for a while that is really good and caring. Most of the time there is a constant parade of new faces that only want to sit and read their phones. All my jewelry is missing. Right at home keeps half of the money they receive and only pays their workers 9-10 per hour. They can get at least twice that on their own, so only the worst of the worst are willing to work for Right at Home.

Provider Response

At Right at Home Birmingham, we too have a goal of consistency and sometimes things outside of our control happen that prohibit consistency in the home. We take pride in our accreditation with The Joint Commission, we are a preferred, in-network provider of BlueCross BlueShield, we offer generous benefits to our staff including BlueCross BlueShield health insurance, we offer weekend shift pay differentials for our staff. It is rare but we do TB testing, Drug Testing, and Background checks prior to hiring staff. Right at Home uniforms are provided at no cost to all caregiver staff. The owner’s mobile number is available at any time to clients and staff. Right at Home hires less than 30% of the qualified people that pass our competency exam to represent us. Additionally, we offer private pay skilled nursing in the home. Our amazing office staff is available on-call 24/7 and any time a call comes in, at any time of day, you’d talk with someone that is part of our staff and knows our care team members and clients we serve. We are trusted in the community and that’s why 70% of our new cases start the same day or next day. We have fantastic staff and they respond quickly. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve.

unfortunately, there were a few phenomenal providers that couldn't come consistently. The other providers were incompetent and completely unable to perform the duties required of the job. From lifting the patient into and out of his wheelchair to helping clean the patient and his bed, at least four people sent were unable to perform these tasks. Two "caregivers" spent all of their time on their phones, neglecting their duties entirely.

Provider Response

We at Right at Home Birmingham take pride in our caregivers. We prescreen all applicants prior to beginning their employment with us. Once they have met our high standards of care, they receive ongoing training to help increase job-related competence. If a client is disgruntled with the level of service received, we encourage these issues to be called to our attention. We’re prompt and attentive in working with each client for resolution of each complaint received.

Our goal at Right at Home Birmingham is to improve the quality of life for those we serve. Our caregivers believe in this goal and we welcome feedback from our valued clients if they feel we fall short of that goal so that we can make improvements immediately.

Right at Home is the only agency we recommend (we tried two others first and they offered poor service by comparison). The agency is always willing to help, to listen and available, putting the patient first and foremost. Right at Home earns an A+ with us!

I can't thank you enough for how thoughtful you have been towards the care and concern you gave my mom and me from the moment we met and continued to be even when she went to the skilled nursing! But also the times you visited her in the hospital and nursing him were "way above" what anyone would ever expect. That speaks volumes of you and your business! Thank you for all you did for her and me. God bless!

RAH, thank you! You and your staff made my dad's life very comfortable while treating him with respect in his last year on Earth. We will miss him, but know he is with our Lord and Savior!

RAH staff--we are very grateful to right at home for the care you helped us provide mom. Mom passed away the way she hoped she would; at home, peacefully and surrounded by people she loved.

Custom Care Plan

From the moment you call, we begin considering the specific needs of your loved one. We ask questions during the initial call or meeting to form a basic needs assessment. After discussing your particular situation, we will prepare an initial Custom Care Plan and then work with you to fine tune that Care Plan based on your loved one's specific needs. Once the plan is agreed upon, your local Right at Home team matches the right caregiver to implement the plan.

Caregiver Training and Care Supervision

Every Right at Home caregiver goes through an extensive interview process, including background checks. Once hired, caregivers are trained through Right at Home University to ensure that they're able to deliver the care set out in your loved one's Custom Care Plan. Before providing care, they're bonded and insured.
