Recovering Right at Home

Mary Girardi of Willoughby is a long-time sufferer of Multiple Sclerosis and is currently undergoing treatment for cancer. Needing help at home because her sister, Gina, works in customer service and her 10-year-old nephew, Gabriel, is at school, Girardi called on Right at Home, a Home Care and Assistance provider.

Girardi’s previous caretaker service proved to be too expensive so she retained Right at Home to provide light housework, meal preparations and transportation Monday through Friday at a more reasonable rate.

“I find them very dependable and trustworthy and I don’t worry about anything. They take the pressure off me and my family. I don’t have any complaints,” said Girardi in a resounding endorsement.

Mary’s grandfather, Dominic Mancini, came from Campobasso of the Molise region of Italy with his wife, Maria, and settled in Cleveland’s Little Italy. He worked as a cobbler in a Mayfield Road shop across from Holy Rosary where he routinely repaired the work shoes of gravediggers employed at nearby Lakeview Cemetery.

Dedicated to improving one’s quality of life, Right at Home makes sure care is, literally, right at home providing companionship, safety supervision, monitoring of everyday health reminders, offering helping hands with laundry, groceries, meal preparations, and other errands, and assistance with doctor visits and follow-up care.
