"My father has used Right at Home for his care needs for a year and a half now and I cannot recommend Right at Home highly enough. The staff are very dedicated, and my father feels entirely comfortable with his care. The manager is always on hand to help with any queries or concerns and goes over and above to help out. I receive daily updates via a secure app so I know exactly how my father is getting on day by day, which is very comforting. Thank you to the manager and team for doing such a fantastic job!"
