Caring for your Community

Right at Home of Essex County has been family owned and operated for, going on, 20 years. Current owner Maeghan Scott took over her father, Moses Scott's, business in 2017 and shared that every day is different! 

In our conversation Maeghan expressed the importance of serving her community, keeping her father's legacy alive and the value in her work for her clients. Right at Home is a home care agency; their aids are sent out to assist with all the daily needs of elders, and individuals who can no longer care for themselves. 

Maeghan expressed how this can be an incredibly difficult experience for people to go through, not being able to do the things they once loved or just the things that made them feel like themselves like driving or getting up to shower. Right at Home emphasizes dignity and humanity in their clients first. Maeghan shared instances of aids doing a client's hair and seeing them light up at their makeover every time. But something as simple as an engaging conversation is enough for clients to feel seen and dignified.

She (Maeghan) is proud to continue her Father's legacy and she's found immense joy in serving her community. 

“Not every agency operates the way that we do and I think that's the special thing about being in a family business. We really treat our caregivers like they’re family. We treat our clients like they’re family and that's why we’ve been able to maintain such a great reputation for almost 20 years.” -Maeghan Scott
