They have given me this housekeeper. For as long as I have been with them, this is the first housekeeper that has been absolutely awesome. They could screen their individuals better.

I live far away from Norma, so I rely on them and trust them to take care of her so I don't have to drive there every day. They are kind, respectful, and know what they are doing.

They help me get to my appointments and go grocery shopping. I'm in area that I can't walk so I need them. I found that the people working for them are generally excellent. I can't drive anymore and the caregivers are drivers for me.
Provider Response
Driving our clients to doctor appointments is one of our core services. We try hard to get it right and stand ready to make changes if we falter. Thanks Antoinette for the review!

She does my grocery shopping, makes and changes my bed, and washes the floors. She impacts my life very much. I love my caregiver. She is very thorough, wonderful, and polite. I like everything about her services.

It is very hard to get the caregiver here to my home. I wouldn't recommend them because their scheduling is to the point where sometimes I get my caregivers at the times and days I need them.

January 22, 2019

By Susan O_3

I am a current client of this provider

They give us a bit of respite so we can leave the house for a bit during the day. I just really like the caregiver we have right now. They've done a good job of finding caregivers who fit my mom.

My mother-in-law really looks forward to her coming. She keeps my mother-in-law engaged in activities and conversation. They do well communicating and working with customers on scheduling.

By Loretta U_1

I am a current client of this provider

They have helped me the most by reaching things for me that I can't reach. They help me get out what I need and put things where I need them. They help me prepare dinners and get clothes ready for tomorrow. The caregivers I have had have been wonderful. It helps a lot. It's a great relief to me. The girls I have had so far have helped me physically because I have so many problems. I haven't been able to wear shoes for five years, but with the girls helping me soak my feet and rub the medicine into them I was able to put shoes on for the first time last week.

December 04, 2018

By Judy P_6

I am a current client of this provider

They have helped mainly with errands like shopping and cleaning. The only problem I see is that the caregivers do not always speak English the best and it's hard for my parents to understand with the thick accents.

December 04, 2018

By Diane K_9

I am a current client of this provider

It's been a help for me through chemotherapy and radiation. They do the cleaning and the shopping, it really takes a lot of pressure off of me. I've had them for four years and I've had three different homemakers, and all of the women that have come have been excellent. I have no complaints.

By Shirley N_4

I am a current client of this provider

By Marie O_1

I am a current client of this provider

I don't like getting my mother cleaned up and showered, so it's wonderful for me. It's good for my mom to have so many people to talk to. They are very honest. They call when they say they are going to call. There was a screw up with scheduling and they were very apologetic. One time, a caregiver hurt her back while taking care of my mother and they were honest with me and told me why she wasn't going to come back.

October 03, 2018

By Herbert T

I am a current client of this provider

When I'm in pain, there's always someone there to help me out when I need a little help. They could try to keep just one person instead of different people coming. I would be more comfortable with one person.

September 18, 2018

By Paula L_3

I am a current client of this provider

My caregiver helps vacuum and clean my floors, as well as changing the bed. They are really good and everything, but I keep getting a different caregiver practically every week. Every time I go over everything that needs to be done, it's time for the caregiver to leave. It takes up too much time when I have to interview the new people and re-explain everything to those who come over.

September 18, 2018

They relieve a burden off of me. I like that they are nice.

It doesn't really impact my life. I'd like more consistency. They could be consistent.
Provider Response
Thank you for the feedback Beverly. We work hard to ensure that the care team we put in place is consistent. We try not to change team members for change sake, but that is not always practicable. That said, we will continue to reinforce with your care team the need. Thank you for taking the time to tell us.

By Peter M_1

I am a current client of this provider

She is there only one day a week. She gives him companionship. It is two hours that I don't need to worry about him. He might have just gotten lucky. The companion we have is perfect for my loved one.

By Jean D

I am a past client of this provider

The services were very much needed. There was one lady who was outstanding. She was an organizer, and she became my best friend. If things were picked up more, that would be better, because my back and arms hurt and they don't work as well. Some of the girls were really great. They should have washed the floors and the bathroom floor. They should have helped me more with laundry because I have a bad back. They did help me with dishes and I was very thankful.
Provider Response
Thanks Jean. While we don’t always get the care team match 100% of the time, we work hard to make sure you are happy with your service. If not pleased with the service, just tell us. Please call the office and we will work to get it right!

By Zubair A

I am a current client of this provider

I had a very bad experience. The person who was helping me out left me alone for several weeks. They should have arranged to have somebody out here for me. They answer the phone quickly when I leave a message.
Provider Response
We encourage our clients to call the office whenever there's a concern about schedules or a shift that needs to be filled. We strive to ensure that all of our clients get the right care when needed. Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. We will certainly review with the staff our communication standards as well.

She is very caring and good to me. She does what I expect her to do. I haven't had much interaction with them. They sent me a worker and I haven't had any conversation with them at all.
Provider Response
We are glad that our care team is caring and good for you. If you have any questions regarding your services or about your care team member, please give us a call at the office. Our nurse case managers are here to assist.

They keep me off of my feet, which is good because I have MS. The caregivers are all well trained and they all do a good job. They are good at cleaning.
Provider Response
Multiple sclerosis is such a horrible disease. We are happy to help Paula maintain her independence at home. We have some of the most well-trained care team members on the South Shore. Keep up the good fight Paula!

By Camille I

I am a current client of this provider

I am not allowed to do stairs, and the laundry is downstairs so she does the laundry for me. The caregiver has helped me out an awful lot. She will give me ideas about what needs to be done around the house like helping me go through the closet to get rid of things that I didn't need anymore.
Provider Response
Keeping you independent is part of our DNA. Decluttering and light housework is part of our job. Glad to help!

My husband needs 24 hour care, and it gives me a break and a chance to clear my head. The aides that they send are qualified, and they return my calls if I have any questions or concerns.

By Ethel C

I am a current client of this provider

It's been really good at times and really bad at times. Some of them don't have the ability to do what they're supposed to do, so I wish they didn't send them to me. Right now it's not that good, but it's been really good before.
Provider Response
Ethel we are sorry to hear that you are not happy with our services. Please call the office and speak with our operations manager. We will work to get it right. We work to get consistency of care, but sometimes we need to work a bit more.

April 26, 2018

By Barbara S

I am a current client of this provider

When they come in and ask me what I want them to do for me. For example, they'll go grocery shopping, do my laundry, or vacuum for me. I had an operation a few months back and couldn't do a lot of things, so they helped me a lot in regards to that.
Provider Response
We are very happy to assist Barbara! Our nurse case managers specialize in helping individuals through transitions from Hospital to Home!

By Mary H_31

Provider Response

April 03, 2018

By Anonymous

I am a current client of this provider

I have to cancel a lot of my Right at Home appointments because I have more important doctor appointments at the same times. They don't understand why I have so many appointments when I have several doctors. It seems to be the same ongoing problem. Sometimes the caregivers don't clean everything and take too much time on the laundry instead.
Provider Response
We try hard to manage our schedule to suit our clients needs. We get that life sometimes interrupts, but our care team member also needs some advanced warning on shift changes. We feel that 24 hour notice of cancellation is a reasonable approach. We do try and have the caregivers prioritize their work and get to what’s most needed in the time allotted.

April 03, 2018

By Francisca F

I am a current client of this provider

They give me good service, the give me a good caregiver, and they give me everything that I need. I don't have to clean the house all of the time now that my caregiver is coming once a week, and that is helpful.
Provider Response
Every little bit helps Francisca! We can do shifts as short as three hours to full 24 hour care. Sometimes that once a week is all you need to stay home! Thank you so much for your 5 star review.

March 23, 2018

By Marilyn H

I am a current client of this provider

I have recommended them! Everything has been positive, from my caregivers to the office. The care really helps me. I am a person who doesn't usually let people help me, but I am comfortable with the caregiver and the office staff. I am doing much better than I ever could without them. They are fantastic. I can't say enough good about them.
Provider Response
Great news Marilyn! We are thrilled that our care givers were able to help you get over the apprehensiveness of in home care. Delivering quality care is in our DNA.

March 16, 2018

By Vincent D

I am a current client of this provider

Here's my problem with them, the girls that come during the week, they don't call sometimes and don't show up. I need a phone call or some kind of coordination so I know if someone is coming. Sometimes a caregiver that was assigned is unassigned and that is disorienting. They take care of my bedding, washing, vacuuming, and I have a problem with bringing them up and down the stairs, and they clean in the kitchen as well. They will do things that my husband can't do anymore.
Provider Response
Vincent we are sorry you have had to deal with call outs. We strive hard to ensure care giver availability and that communication between the clients and our office team is robust. Certainly, if there is problem we try and notify all call outs and you can always call the office for assistance 24/7. Sometimes life happens for the care giver as well. Because of our size, we typically have the ability to swap in a care giver on the same day. I am glad to hear that they are helpful with the in home chores.

March 16, 2018

By Maria R

I am a current client of this provider

They are very accommodating with their times if I have a doctor appointment or something like that. They send me very nice staff, which is nice. I have had other companies that send caregivers who are just there for a paycheck, but these caregivers are just nice people.
Provider Response
Maria, we are glad to hear that our care givers are nice! We strive hard during our hiring process to get the right people. We think it is what defines us and what sets us apart from other in home care agencies.

By Beverly T

January 05, 2018

By Roger O

I am a current client of this provider

Most of the caregivers are friendly and responsive to my needs. My apartment stays more together when I have Right at Home. If I don't feel physically able to get things done, they are able to work with me to get things done.
Provider Response
Thanks Roger. We try hard to make sure we get the right care team member assigned to each case. Keeping you in your home is our priority.

By Estelle D

I am a current client of this provider

The caregivers help me exceptionally well. They are excellent at what they do and are compassionate and caring. The caregivers are life-savers because I can't do housework around the house. Before they came, everything went from bad to worse but it is so nice to have clean home and someone to listen to me.
Provider Response
Compassion is a trait we look for with our care givers. Keeping you home is what we specialize in. Thanks Estelle!

By Correanne C

I am a current client of this provider

For the last month or so, I couldn't be happier. I have this wonderful woman that comes. Her work is perfect, and she's just a great person. Everything is good. When you start something new it takes a while to become adjusted. For a few months, it was like I had somebody different every week. I was developing anxiety with a different stranger coming in every week. I have had this new one for two to three months, and she's fabulous. The managers at the office are very on top of things, polite, and considerate. They call to let me know exactly what is going on. When she leaves, I'm in heaven. My house is so clean! It's really improved things for me overall, physically, psychologically, and emotionally. It's given me energy to do new things instead of trying to just get by day to day. Every week I'm so afraid that it's going to stop. They're very steady, and it's been really perfect for me.

By Kathleen M

I've had Right at Home's caregivers for several years now. I used to work for several years with another home care agency, and Right at Home does not match that agency's standards. The caregiver I have right now is really good, but it hasn't always been that way. She does my laundry, and she's very good at doing what needs to be done.

My dad had been resistant to home companions in the past so I was very nervous how he would react to the Right at Home caregivers. They immediately put my worries to rest. They were very gentle and nonthreatening and were able to get my dad up in the morning and take him to his day program even when he didn't want to go. It meant a lot that the caregivers agreed to meet with me prior to their first visit to my dad and I liked reading the visit log the caretakers filled out each day.

Right-at-Home is the go-to-service if you need to get an elderly parent to a wedding! RAH was friendly, efficient, and caring. My 86 year old dad was brought from Southshore, MA to Southern NH to attend my son's wedding. The wheelchair van was driven by a wonderful personal care attendant. He was prompt, friendly, and respectful. I would highly recommend RAH for your family needs.

Before my husband passed away, I had in-home care for him from Right at Home. They're basically okay. We had them for a little more than a week. Once I hired them, they had somebody that day. There were four different caregivers but only one came at a time. They were assisting my husband with almost everything. They helped him dressed and bathed him. They're okay except for one of their caretakers. I found my husband asleep in his chair and this caretaker was asleep of all things in my husband's bed. I got very angry over that and I didn't pay for those hours. I was very disappointed with that person. However, the other three people were excellent. They had great attitude and they were very competent.
Provider Response

Right at Home South Shore takes great pride in the quality and competence of our caregivers. First, we begin the process of selecting less than 40% of the applicants that apply for employment. We seek candidates that not only have the skills and compassion to want to work with the elderly, but also, those candidates must have excellent communication skills because companionship and conversation is one of the most important benefits that we bring to our clients.

All of our caregivers complete a comprehensive orientation program and must pass a competency test before they are placed with a client. Each caregiver is closely supervised by a nurse to ensure that they are following the customized plan of care that is developed for each client's needs. We encourage constructive feedback from all of our clients about any complaints or observations noticed about one of our caregivers because we'll make sure our clients' care experience is just right.

Right at Home/Rockland took care of my father before he passed, and they were spectacular. So was he, and he deserved their warm, compassionate, competent service.

RAH has provided a continous level of superior, professional companionship service to our 82 year old Mother who is afflicted with several Alzheimers-related medical issues. Through 24/7 supervision, RAH thoughtfully selected and assembled a qualified team of caring companions and nurses who have demonstrated an extraordinary committment and compassion often in a challenging environment. Tasked with several responsibilities ranging from grocery shopping, to light house keeping, medical appointments, and personal assistance, RAH's caregivers have dramatically improved our Mother's overall socialization, disposition and well-being.

We started working with Right at Home about a month ago to provide services for my mother who has Alzheimer's and to provide support to my father (her primary caregiver) six days a week. So far we have had an excellent experience. The caregivers are supportive, caring people and have given my Dad a much deserved break as well as provide knowledgeable care for my Mom. I have also been impressed with the structures and processes put in place to insure that we get consistent, reliable care. Our relationship with Right at Home is still new but we couldn't be happier.

Cannot say enough wonderful things about Right at Home. Right at home was originally hired just to help with medications for my 83 year old father as he was alone in his home in Massachusetts while his four daughters live in Florida. As anyone that has an elderly loved one that lives out of state knows..it's hard to worry from afar. It was a great relief to know that Right at Home was checking on him and keeping in touch with us in Florida. The nurse was trustworthy, caring, kind and just fantastic in every way. Right at Home spent much time on the phone with us to help choose and get him into a rehab facility after he was sick last year, which I always felt was above and beyond. Just recently I was up in Massachusetts with my father because he had developed an infection. My dad refused to go to the hospital and the nurse from Right at Home stayed with us for an extra 4 hours or so until we could finally get the help my father desperately needed at the hospital. Again above and beyond. The Right at Home nurse was like an angel during this stressful time. Five stars is not enough to rate how much Right at Home helped us with our dad.

I am the son of a client of Right at Home South Shore, and wanted to report that my frail 91 year-old father (and his children) have had a very positive experience with this agency for more than three years. Right at Home has been very accommodating to my father's changing needs, both for different levels of care and for the number of hours of care he receives each week. My father has had some wonderful caregivers over the years who have gone above and beyond in providing care to him. In particular, it has been extremely helpful that Right at Home caregivers have been able to drive my father to shopping, medical appointments, and other activities. Especially on the South Shore, where transportation for elderly and disabled people can be very difficult (if not completely non-existent), this more than anything else has allowed my father to stay in his home and maintain the best quality of life possible. In response to the poster who reported that some of Right at Home's caregivers did not speak English, that has never been my experience in the many years we have used the agency. Finally, I have been very impressed with Right at Home's careful attention to my father's medications. Like many older people, my father has a bewildering number and variety of medications, many of which change in dosage levels on a regular basis. I am often confused by exactly how much he is taking of a particular medication at any point in time, especially since each medication has more than one name. With a well-trained Right at Home RN filling my father's pill organizer once a week, and staying on top of the frequent dosage changes by being in contact with his physician, this is one aspect of my father's health that I no longer worry about. This has been a great relief.

As many children of elderly parents have experienced, our parents were always very independent, strong and healthy, and they wanted to stay that way. However, as the years passed and dimentia took hold of our father, we could see that he required more help than our mother was physically and emotionally capable of providing on a long-term, daily basis. We tried to patch the day to day needs together with siblings dropping by to help, but with work and families of our own, it just became too difficult. This is when we were blessed to have several people recommend Right At Home out of Rockland, Mass. This company has been an such an amazing help to our parents and our entire family. Our mother at first was very reluctant to accept that she needed outside help and only permitted us to start with someone to come in 2 mornings per week. In just a few short months, my mother requested that we ask to have the caregiver from Right at Home come three, then four, then five days per week, as our father's dimentia worsened. Our parents and our entire family grew to trust and love this caregiver, who has become an indispensible companion working tirelessly to provide a high level of in-home care. She is ALWAYS punctual, runs errands, brings our parents to appointments if we can't, keeps the house neat and clean, cooks wonderful and healthy meals, keeps our father on a consistent schedule, and most importantly, shows compassion, provides wonderful companionship and conversation, taking an interest in our parents' lives and their happiness and well-being. Especially for our Mom, who has mobility issues, and for whom many tasks and hobbies have been put aside to care for our Dad, it warms our hearts to see the Right at Home Caregiver asking our Mom what she wants to accomplish this week, and then helping her to execute the project our task, whether it is sending out holiday cards, wrapping birthday gifts for grandchildren, or carving out time to do her geneology research. Over time, as our father's dimentia has brought on further decline, we now have overnight care through Right at Home as well. Every caregiver who comes for the overnight shift is punctual, professional, ENGLISH- SPEAKING, caring, consistent and very capable to handle the nightly routine. Our mother can now get a prper night's rest without the worry of our father getting up during the night, wandering or falling down. The overnight caregivers help our Dad get changed and ready for bed, help them both to the bathroom during the night and set them up for the day before leaving the next morning. We can not emphasize enough how pleased we have been, and what a sense of relief we feel to know that our parents are being so well-cared for while staying in the home that they love. We would recommend Right-at-Home to anyone in the area who is considering in-home care for any reason or for any length of time. The management is extremely responsive, professional and caring and the emphasis that they place in the screening and education of their caregivers really shows. We know that our parents are safer and more rested with the help of Right at Home, and we, their children are much more at ease knowing that compassionate and professional caregivers are taking such wonderful care of our Mom and Dad.

I give the highest recommendation to this company. My 94 year old mother recently returned to her independent living residence following a severe case of pneumonia and several weeks at a rehab hospital. She was extremely weak,depressed and suffering severe anxiety. She could never have continued to live independently without the support of Right at Home for about a month. A Right of Home manager/nurse met us at the hospital to develop the plan, consulted with the social worker, called us to confirm the arrangements prior to start-up, and personally introduced each aid who would be providing service. All details of service were implemented as planned. Service quality was very high. All staff workers were US citizens who spoke English as a first language. They all developed close relationships with my mother. Gradually, we were able to taper down the services (which started as almost 24/7) as my mother regained her independent living skills.

Hello, I am a Health Care Proxy, Power of Attorney to an elderly gentleman who I have know for over 30 years. He is like a member of my family. After "Ray" had a bad fall at the assisted living facility, I wanted Ray to have round-the-clock caregiving assistance, since he was at a high risk of having another fall. I have been very impressed with the Right at Home owners, as well as with the caregivers they have sent to assist Ray. The caregivers provide very detailed documentation in the daily notebook, so I can see at a glance how the shifts have been going. It is really a plus that the owner's wife is a nurse. She is very caring and very knowledgable about Ray's condition. My needs were very much in the respite category this time, however, I would like to continue using the RIght at Home Services for transporting Ray to doctor's appointments, etc. I would highly recommend Right at Home! It really will give you peace of mind, knowing that your loved one is receiving the best individualized care! Take good care, Wendy

My mother is a current client of Right at Home in Rockland. When my family and I decided earlier this year that she needed more assistance than we could provide, I explored assisted living, adult day centers and in home care to find the right solution for her. After a number of conversations with the owners of Right at Home regarding my mother's care and checking their references, we decided that keeping my mother at home with Right at Home was the best thing for her. We have 5 caregivers helping my mother throughout the week, and all of them have been wonderful. When selecting caregivers I do think it's important that they can communicate effectively with the client, and the caregivers we have all speak English perfectly. More importantly the caregivers proactively communicate about my mother's needs. If they notice something might have changed for her, they'll call me or the owners of the agency with what they've noticed so that we can address anything that needs to be addressed. Caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease is not easy, and I've been so impressed with the sensitivity and creativity displayed by our caregivers. They clearly think about what would be fun for her and then plan some activities before they come to her house. They have my mother doing crafts, playing board games and baking with them. They've also greatly improved her diet, and they keep her engaged and participating in the daily activities of life"”they shop and cook together as well as doing the basic home chores. She is much healthier and happier since we've put the home care in place. I have not had any issues with the bills that we've received"”they're accurate and easy to follow. I believe that "offended" might have the agency confused with another one. My strongest endorsement comes directly from my mother when she says that there's not one of the caregivers she would trade. We're happy to have my mother at home with high quality care.

My mom Ellen can't say enough about Right at Home. The caregivers they send out are wonderful. They are always so attentive to her every need. Not only have I and my sister seen a great change in my mom's appearance but she all over attitude is wonderful. We really didn't think she would be so inviting of a stranger into her home. (At first she wasn't). We started with just two days a week now we are up to five. My mom thinks of her caregiver Sally as a God send. Sally is like a part of our family. She traveled with my mom to my sister's house out of town. That was the best; we were all together again. We haven't done that in years. I just want to let you know that Right at Home is the best. Sincerely Charles Holmes & Family.

This agency was careless with our elderly mother.Often times sent non english speaking caregivers,always a high turnover of help. Billing practices a nightmare!
Provider Response

As the owner of this agency, i would like to respond to the negative comment above. I am sorry to learn that you had a bad experience caring for your mother at home, but I believe you may have my agency confused with someone else. The comment that none of my caregivers could speak English is just false because ALL of my caregivers are required to be fluent and clearly understood in English. In fact, 85% of my caregivers are born in the US because of the importance that we place on the ability of our caregivers to interact, converse and socialize with our clients. This philosophy has enabled my agency to become one of the most successful and respected agencies on the South Shore.
