About Right at Home of Morris & Union Counties, NJ

John and Juanita Major began Right at Home, Chatham in March of 2003. Dealing with aging family members over the years was an inspiration for the Majors to start a business that assists both seniors and the community that they live in. Both John and Juanita are longtime residents of Chatham and Madison, NJ and have been highly involved in their community through different service organizations and youth organizations, as their children grew up in Chatham. John is a Vietnam Army Veteran and is proud to say that Right at Home is approved by the Department of Veteran Affairs to provide Home Care to eligible Veterans.

Jackie Major, John and Juanita's daughter, is also proud to work for Right at Home. Jackie is a member of the Society of Certified Senior Advisors. She has always had a passion for helping others and leading groups as a longtime Volunteer in Homeless shelters, mentor in youth organizations, sports teams, and human rights organizations. Jackie attended Chatham schools and college at Saint Joseph's University where she received her B.S. in Sociology as well as a second degree in Fine Arts.

Right at Home is an active member of the Coalition on Family Caregiving, the Morris County Caregiver Coalition, Chatham and Madison NJ Chamber of Commerce, Greater Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce, Alzheimer's Association Early Detection Alliance, and Society of Certified Senior Advisors, among many other groups. The Major family prides themselves in their compassionate, caring, and highly qualified Caregivers, Nurses, Marketers, and Office staff. Someone is on call to assist 24 hours a day and 7 days a week!
