Right at Home was founded in Omaha, Nebraska, 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 the elderly– leave and return home, but not necessarily return to good health. Once home, many 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.
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. Five years later, he started branching into other regions of the country by carefully selecting local owners/operators who shared his passion for caring for those in their community.
Right at Home now has more than 500 offices that serve thousands of clients across Ireland, the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Japan and The Netherlands.
