Tomorrow is #NationalSunglassesDay. Sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat are the best defense system for your eyes against sunlight and harmful UV rays. To be effective, both must be worn every time you're outside for prolonged periods of time, even when it's overcast. But what type of sunglasses should you buy? Here are a couple of tips from American Academy of Ophthalmology.

With a skilled, reliable caregiver in the home, family are able to work, play, exercise, attend to their own healthcare appointments, and enjoy the many other mood-boosting activities that tend to fall by the wayside as their loved one’s care needs increase. Professional in-home caregivers provide companionship, supervision, nutritious meals, transportation, medication reminders, plus much more.

Seniors take medications for many health conditions. But medications themselves can have side effects, such as drowsiness and confusion, that impede physical activity. An in-home caregiver can be sure your loved one is taking his or her medications correctly, and can report any side effects.

Reminiscing can be an important tool for socialization. For seniors who receive home care, sharing memories is a great way for staff to get to know the person better by learning about their life stories and accomplishments.

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.
