As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to ravage communities across the world, it is heartening to see people and businesses stepping up to offer their strength and resources to protect the most vulnerable among us. Winston-Salem has no shortage of its own heroes coming to the fore, and some of them are our local Right at Home employees, who are saving lives and helping to stem the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic by providing care services to senior adults and adults with disabilities in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

“We believe in improving the quality of life for those we serve,” said Greg Brewer. “Right now we are focused on assisting the seniors and disabled adults in our community. Having a caregiver in the home, preparing meals and interacting with the senior, makes a difference that promotes healing and overall good health for the senior. This is a mission’s opportunity to help other people.”

By providing in-home care for the most vulnerable community members, Brewer’s Right at Home caregivers are alleviating the burden on overfull hospitals, trying to protect those for whom the virus presents the biggest risk, and providing companionship to reduce loneliness.

“Right now, we as a society are faced with an unprecedented challenge,” said Brian Petranick, CEO and president of Right at Home. “We believe that everyone should be doing what they can to protect and strengthen our communities. As a business that is uniquely well equipped to respond to this crisis, we are so proud of our Winston-Salem Right at Home office and the role they are playing.”

Risk of exposure to COVID-19 remains lowest for those who can stay in their homes and limit outside contact. Right at Home caregivers are trained extensively on limiting exposure and reducing the risk of spreading infection. Right at Home continues to actively monitor the recommendations and guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and their state and local departments of health.

The locally owned Winston-Salem office of Right at Home is a franchise of Right at Home, LLC, serving the communities of Forsyth, Davie, Stokes, Guilford, Davidson, and Alamance.
