In Italy, a strong emphasis on familial support remains and care of the elderly is traditionally considered a social duty.  Still, Long Term Care patients, when not treated by family caregivers, are typically treated in residential facilities.  In a time of evolving labor markets, healthier ageing adults, and mobile, dual income families, the demand for home care services in Italy has never been greater.  Currently, the private home care market in Italy is relatively undeveloped.  This gap in the market gives Right at Home a unique opportunity to shape and develop the private home care industry in Italy.  More importantly, private home care services, such as those offered by Right at Home can help maintain the Italian commitment to family support by providing alternative care solutions for the 12.5 Million adults aged 65+ currently living in the country.
