Care At Home

Est. 1993

From 1993 to 2003, Sandra Dunkel, RN, owned and operated Special Care, a franchise home care business based out of Philadelphia. During that time, she was the only person in the office, managing requests for service and visiting approximately 20 clients and families in need of the services provided by 30 caregivers.

In 2003, she left Special Care and founded her locally-owned, licensed home care agency, Care At Home (CAH), initially offering assistance with activities of daily living, medication reminders, light housekeeping and shopping/running errands. Today, she has more than 100 active clients, over 240 caregivers and is supported by an office staff of 15.

In 2007, Sandra opened Care At Home Preferred (CAHP), which is a licensed Medicare certified home health agency that provides essential medical home care services such as skilled nursing, physical and speech therapy. Operating both businesses has enabled her to continue to seek the highest standards for individualized and client-centered medical and non-medical home care for her clients.

Care At Home has two locations in Arnold and Fox Chapel, Pa. that provide services to Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler and Westmoreland counties. Affiliated organizations include: Pennsylvania Homecare Association; National Private Duty Association, Chamber of Commerce for Allegheny Valley, Strongland and Oakmont and Alle-Kiski Faith in Action.

It is the promise of both Dunkel and CAH that they will always be there for their clients to help them navigate through their life journey. Whether that journey enables them to remain in the comfort of their home or a facility, their promise is to be there to help them by providing the resources they need to make the best decisions that will provide them with the best care.
