Consider that many chronic illnesses—such as arthritis, osteoporosis and vision loss—cause disability, but don't necessarily shorten our lives. If we're lucky enough to live to a ripe old age, we'll continue to wish for good quality of life, no matter our health challenges. So it's important to create a plan for whatever the future brings us. Here are some points to consider:

For seniors with high blood pressure, diet makes all the difference. Healthy foods can help your loved one maintain a healthy weight. And following a low-sodium diet is usually especially important. In-home caregivers know that this can be a challenge. The solution? Preparing delicious meals with alternative seasonings. Your loved one will be pleased to find out that unsalted food doesn't have to be bland. #NationalHealthyHeartMonth

Spending hours alone at home can have such a negative impact on your loved one. The presence of a caregiver in your loved one's home, for a few hours a week to full-time, provides the stimulation and comfort of having another person around. ‪  #Seniors   #Caregiving   #AginginPlace

When you were a small child, you probably complained to your parents at bedtime: "Why do I have to go to sleep? It's a waste of time!" Most of us spend about one-third of our life sleeping—but sleep remains a mystery to us. We don't think much about it until we encounter a sleep problem.

Using our brains for mentally challenging activities encourages new connections between brain cells. You might say that the brain is like a muscle that can be strengthened! Watching TV and similar passive activities don’t offer the same benefits. Right at Home caregivers know how important it is to help clients seek out a variety of appropriate, mentally challenging activities. At home, they might enjoy a game of checkers, crafts, or listening to music. The Right at Home Caregiver can also provide transportation so clients can visit a garden, spend time with friends, or go to a museum.

With Right at Home you will always know what Care Services are being provided to your loved one. After our initial meeting, we develop a Custom Care Plan. This plan is tailored to a person's specific needs, and we make detailed recommendations on exactly what kind of services we feel would benefit them. We then arrange a follow-up meeting to go over the Custom Care Plan in detail, plus make any necessary adjustments.

Story
Tagline
We are an in-home care & assistance agency, providing quality senior and disabled persons care since 1995
Introduction

The Right at Home of Somerset, Hunterdon & Mercer Counties office is owned and managed by Janet and Carl Kuebler. Our mission is to provide support of the highest quality and integrity to improve the quality of life for those we serve.  

Janet, who manages the Right at Home (RAH) office, has a background in Sales and Marketing.  Prior to RAH, Janet worked for such companies as General Electric and Novartis.  Carl has been in Sales and Marketing in the pharmaceutical industry for nearly 22 years, working primarily in the area of cancer therapies.  He has had an opportunity to see the strength and character of cancer patients first-hand and the power that having control over your own care provides.  

Responsible for much of the care of aging and disabled parents, Janet and Carl feel there is a great need for the services that Right at Home provides and want to help address the challenges of the changing healthcare dynamic.  It is important that people have the opportunity to remain in their own homes and for their extended family and caregivers to have options to help make that possible.  Janet and Carl were customers of RAH before becoming owners.
