n 2012, long-time friends, Dustin Distefano and Jerod Evanich, were inspired by their own personal experiences to start a business built on providing professional in-home senior care that allows seniors to remain happy and independent in the comfort of their own home. A Place At Home offers not only in-home senior care services including companionship, homemaker, personal, and medication care but also saw the need for additional seniorfocused services such as senior placement and medication coordination to truly guide seniors through the aging process. They also offer caregiver staffing to healthcare companies. A Place At Home is committed to their “We are CARE: Compassionate, Accountable, Respectful, and Ethical” philosophy and incorporates these values into every service they provide. They saw success with this model and began franchising in 2017. There’s now a growing franchise family network spanning coast-to-coast.
