The History of
Family inHome Caregiving

After nearly three decades of caregiving, both in a professional environment and for a 90+-year-old family member, who lived with me, I became convinced of the need for a service that provides very personal assistance to the elderly. 
After observing how other Home Care Organizations operate, I believed that I could provide a better way of life for seniors by providing sensitive, caring, quality service.  I have found that it's very important that Home Care Aides be properly screened and matched with the elderly when they require outside assistance to remain in their own homes.  When done properly, this can assist them in leading a healthier and happier life. 

In addition to providing help with day-to-day chores and Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), our Home Care Aides can lift the spirits of seniors by taking them out on walks, shopping and to senior centers and other areas where they can network with others.  I believe that keeping the mind active and ensuring that our Clients get more social interaction can be as important as good health and exercise. 

Family members who are caregivers are also given a much-needed break.  My team is committed to making this happen for more seniors in Monterey County and look forward to working with you to carry out this vision.

Richard's Other Commitments

Richard's commitment to serving the senior community goes way beyond his business enterprise. In 2011, Kuehn formed the nonprofit Hands to Help Seniors. Through active fundraising, the organization has addressed a wide range of needs, such as helping homeless women with first month’s rent and security deposit, removing black mold from a woman’s roof, and helping fund other peoples’ bridges and dentures. We find resources who give us great discounts so the money we raise goes even farther to help seniors. A five-member board, including Richard Kuehn, oversees the disbursement of funds to low-income seniors.

He represents District 5 of the Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council, is the council chairperson, and was appointed by the Monterey County Board of Supervisors, advising the board on aging issues. He’s also on the advisory council for In-Home Support Services, currently serving as vice-chair. His main role is to help translate and communicate governmental policy and procedure changes.

Richard is also a Board Member on the Triple-A Council of California or TACC, representing Monterey County at the state level in Sacramento. TACC represents the 33 Area Agencies on Aging Advisory Councils. The mission of TACC is to promote communication and collaboration among local advisory councils, and key state partners, and to:

Educate through the exchange of information, ideas, trends, and models of service delivery;
