Who We Are
Right at Home was founded by Allen Hager. For many years, Allen worked in healthcare as a hospital administrator. While in the hospital environment, he watched many of his 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 500 locations that serve tens of thousands of clients across the United States and internationally.
The mission of Right at Home is to improve the quality of life for those we serve.
First and foremost, we exist to serve our clients. Whenever doubt exists in a situation, we consider this our guiding priority.
How we treat one another dramatically affects how we treat our clients. Every Right at Home associate deserves and receives respect, consideration and support.
We strive for creativity and innovation. New ideas and better ways of doing things are encouraged and rewarded.
Profitability is important and comes from proper execution within the framework and spirit of our mission and values.
