In-home care company opens in Marietta
MARIETTA — A Marietta native and former physical therapy assistant has opened an in-home care service for seniors and adults with disabilities who want to live independently.
Right at Home in Marietta is Chrisy Heiss’ first location and will serve Marietta and surrounding communities. She has 15 years of experience working at a local skilled nursing facility.
Her career as a physical therapist assistant started at a included treating residents, assisting families through the next level of care and managing a team of therapists providing therapeutic care.
She is using her experience in her life’s mission.
“My main goal is to make a positive impact on those we serve and their families,” Heiss said. “It is important to me that each client and family is treated with the care and professionalism that I would expect for my family members.”
As the baby boomer generation reaches its senior years, there has been an increased demand for quality in-home care services, Margaret Haynes, chief operating officer of Right at Home, said. The need is across the country and in Marietta, she said.
“This is a fantastic community, and Chrisy and her team are dedicated to supporting the many families here,” Haynes said.
Right at Home has more than 600 franchises in the U.S. and seven other countries.
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in 2020, Right at Home was deemed an essential business, making the brand one of the few businesses to not only maintain its existing customer base, but to also take on new clients. The company is leveraging the momentum to bring its in-home care services to families in new markets across the country, including Marietta.
Founded in 1995, most Right at Home offices are independently owned and operated and directly employ and supervise staff. Each caregiver is thoroughly screened, trained and bonded and insured before entering a client’s home.
The company is based in Omaha, Neb.
