Home care business opens in Marietta | News, Sports, Jobs
MARIETTA – A Marietta native and former physical therapy assistant has opened a 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 work experience at a local skilled nursing facility.
Her career as a physiotherapy assistant began in a practice including treating residents, assisting families through the next level of care, and managing a team of therapists providing therapeutic care.
She uses her experience in her life’s mission.
“My primary goal is to have a positive impact on those we serve and their families,” said Heisse. “It is important to me that every client and family is treated with the care and professionalism that I expect of my family members.”
As the baby boomer generation reaches old age, there has been an increased demand for quality home care services, said Margaret Haynes, chief operating officer of Right at Home. The need is across the country and in Marietta, she said.
“It’s a fantastic community, and Chrisy and her team are dedicated to supporting the many families here,” said Haynes.
Right at Home has more than 600 franchises in the United States and seven other countries.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, Right at Home was deemed an essential business, making the brand one of the few companies not only maintaining its existing customer base, but also taking on new customers. The company is taking advantage of the momentum to bring its 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 carefully screened, trained and bonded and insured before entering a client’s home.
The company is based in Omaha, Neb.
