Right at Home of Seminole County Recognizes Its Unsung Heroes as Caregivers Provide In-Home Care for Those Most Vulnerable to COVID-19

As hospitals struggle to accommodate an unprecedented influx of patients, the in-home care franchise is providing essential care to the elderly and disabled in the comfort and safety of their homes.


Longwood, FL — As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to ravage communities across the world, it is heartening to see people and businesses stepping up to offer their strength and resources to protect the most vulnerable among us. We have no shortage of our own heroes coming to the fore, and of them are our local Right at Home employees, who are saving lives and helping to stem the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic by providing care services to senior adults and adults with disabilities in the comfort and safety of their own homes.


Dennis, a disabled Vietnam veteran, and stroke victim, has been provided service from Right at Home Longwood/Lake Mary for the past three years.  Alicia, his Right at Home caregiver continues to help Dennis with his personal care, light housekeeping among other things during these trying times.  His wife comments, “I especially appreciate the care Alicia has shown my husband during the past several weeks.

We have used other companies before but none have gone as far as Right at Home.  They have truly gone above and beyond.  Dennis and I appreciate all they have done for us.” 


“We are truly proud of not only Alicia, but all of our caregivers, who continue to care for our clients during the Coronavirus pandemic”, says Rob Hoffman, franchise owner and President”.
