I live in Elora and I had an appointment with a ENT Specialist in Guelph. My transportation fell through and I contacted Right at Home Guelph the day of my appointment and told them my problem. I was told they could take me to my appointment on such short notice so I would not have to take a cab both ways. Beth and I have a great relationship and since that day she has taken me to any medical appointments I have. The level of care I receive from Right at Home Guelph is excellent. They are kind, considerate and real people persons, especially with seniors like me. Beth seems to know instinctively what to do whether to inject a bit of humor into a situation or to reach out and hold my hand. I would recommend them to others for their care and compassion. I know that should I need a more involved level of care in the future that Right at Home will be right there for me.
