In-home care service franchise meets client needs
By Kevin Smith
When Eleanor McLain fell and injured her knee, she relied heavily on her regular in-home caregiver to help her around the house.
But when her caregiver had to be away for three months, McLain turned to Right at Home of Pasadena, an in-home care service franchise, owned by Diane Fortner and her husband Bob Hingston.
Right at Home provides trained, insured and bonded caregivers for a variety of home care and home health care needs. The service was a godsend for McLain, 87, who lives in the Villa Gardens retirement community in Pasadena.
“I was unable to get out much and they supplied me with excellent caregivers,” McLain said. “I used them for several months. Right at Home provided all the help I needed, and I’d be happy to have any of them back again.”
Fortner and her husband launched their Right at Home franchise in July 2007. They live in La Crescenta and run their business from an office at 1785 Locust St., Suite 3, in Pasadena.
