Our Caregivers Exemplify Our Core Values to Provide the Best Care for Those We Serve
"At Right at Home our caregivers (nurses and aides) are the heart and soul of our organization. As Barry (Right at Home co-owner) would say, “caring starts with us as owners.” We genuinely care for our caregivers and provide support in the forms of encouragement, prayers, and training to help them perform well."
"Right at Home is in the nurturing profession where human dignity, altruism, companionship, communication, integrity, and compassion are the values of our deliverables. We believe caring creates a culture of harmony and builds camaraderie. We are very proud of our caregivers’ dedication and devotion to the welfare of others." — George Davidson, Right at Home Owner
"Thank You" to Our Compassionate and Hard Working Caregivers Who Provide the Best Care Daily!
Brenda Dent, Caregiver

Lori Shook, Caregiver
Right at Home was blessed to hire Lori in February of 2018. She originally was hired to care for her mother, who had been admitted as a new client. Lori called the office to inquire about caring for her saying “Natasha, what are your thoughts-who better to care for mom than her own daughter who has already done it for the last 4 years?” Here we are over a year later and it is still the perfect match.
Privately Lori has been a caregiver for over 17 years. “Stage 4 cancer in the household gives you immediate responsibilities and experience. Although we have been in remission for 15 years, we have never left treatment.” Helping with everything from personal care to homemaking, it only made sense for her to join Right at Home and turn her everyday experiences into a career. Lori also has a background in assisting at the local Animal Protection League, working as a delivery driver for the United Parcel Service and as a correctional officer for the Indiana Department of Corrections, where she later retired.
Lori loves hanging out with her family and friends, especially when she watches her younger family members play sports. Outside of that, Lori is fully dedicated to doing a great job for Right at Home and the clients she sees. “I enjoy being a part of a team of caregivers. Not all companies in this field are equal and I am proud to be working with the best. I really enjoy helping others! I like the different experiences and seeing someone’s journey. Although it’s sad, I am humbled by seeing someone who needs care up until the day they leave this world. The only thing that I try to do every day is to treat all of my clients like I would my own mother.”
Collin Croft, Caregiver
Collin joined Right at Home in July of 2020. When he first came to Right at Home, he was working a full-time position and only wanted to work part time hours. After two short weeks, Collin left his full-time job to work with other clients within Right at Home. He is always energetic and has a positive attitude, that could brighten any room. He continuously brings joy in any situation and strives to give the best care possible to every client. Collin is always willing to learn and takes any feedback as a striving focus to gain more knowledge. Collin stated that their heart was within the care of their clients and it made his decision easy.
Collin strives to build a relationship based on honesty and trust with each client. He has helped to ensure that several clients have received the care they needed. Those clients during the unfortunate pandemic, were being discharged, due to the lack of caregivers. Collin stepped up and was willing to take on the full time of 60 hours per week. One of his clients has expressed on several occasions that they have found a friend in Collin. Collin has given them life back and helped them gain more confidence in themselves. During every shift not only are all tasks completed, but Collin has helped the client find new activities to engage in. Client's family has also noticed a change in the client’s happiness and now there is always a smile on the clients' face. Collin’s other clients have stated that, they love how caring and helpful he is, each visit. One client stated how detailed and engaging he has been since day one. They feel safe staying in their own home since Collin has come into their life. Collin is very motivated to have an impact on his clients, encouraging them to be as independent as possible. Not only does Collin display and seeks assisting in independence, their caring heart shows. One morning he called to inform the office that he was walking to the client’s house as their car broke down and their documentation would be late. After the owner offering to take Collin to the client, they denied the ride and stated they were almost there. Collin wanted to make sure his client had the care they needed that day. He has given his clients the opportunity to stay in the comfort of their home by providing the outmost, selfless care.
