Walter Ochoa is owner and operator of Right at Home of Brooklyn and Staten Island.
Walter graduated from Del Valle University in Guatemala. He met and married his American sweetheart, Jean. They moved to Brooklyn, where they live with their 2 children. They are very involved in the community.
Walter has worked for some of the top financial companies in the world; however, despite his success, he had always wanted to do something more fulfilling. He wanted to assist those wishing to stay in their own homes, but could no longer do it alone, especially the elderly and disabled. When the opportunity arose to start his own business, he took it. In 2010, Walter and Jean ventured to open the first Right at Home office in NYC.
Walter knows he made the right decision; people want to age at home! Right at Home has now assisted thousands of clients, adults of any age that need assistance to continue living “Right at Home”. It has also created thousands of employment opportunities and has trained Nurses, Home Aides, and Family Caregivers in the community, as well as in several prestigious facilities in the city. We also focus on “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia” and how to improve the care for those who suffer this disease.
Walter has also served on several boards, recently as Secretary for the Community Advisory Board for the Bay Ridge Senior Center, and as representative of the Northeast Region for the Right at Home Franchise Advisory Council.
