A Place At Home, an award-winning in-home senior care franchise, has awarded a new franchise to Orange Park owners. Chris and Brittany Adams are the new owners set to help APAH fulfill its goals for helping elderly Americans live a vibrant and healthy life in their homes.
A Place At Home – Orange Park will meet the surging demand for in-home senior care services in the area. The Adams completed their training in July. They are set to open their doors the first week of August.
APAH co-founder Dustin Distefano stated, “We are excited to add two highly skilled and passionate individuals to the APAH family. They bring a wealth of business management experience that aligns with our CARE philosophy. They are genuinely committed to transforming lives in Orange Park.”
The franchise’s new location at 155 Blanding Blvd, Unit 10, Orange Park, FL 32073 is strategic in the area. Chris and Brittany plan to serve more than ten surrounding communities. Those communities include Middleburg, Penny Farms, Green Cove Springs, Keystone Heights, Fleming Island, Ashbury Lake, Bellaire- Meadowbrook Terrace, the Argyle Forest, and Oakleaf Plantation area.
Data from the 2010 census shows that 22% of the Orange Park population is seniors. A large percentage of these are living alone, while only 3% of those that need living assistance prefer nursing homes. These statistics explain the growing demand for in-home care services in the area. The Adams are determined to fill that gap. The two entrepreneurs come with broad expertise in the health sector, commerce, and elderly caregiving. CEO Chris Adams has more than 30 years of experience in the senior living profession. Operations Manager Brittany Adams comes with more than 18 years of experience in the retail sector.
Personal reasons attracted them to senior care. Chris spent most of his youthful days volunteering at a hospital. At this hospital, his father worked as a Healthcare Executive and his mother as a Registered Nurse. Moreover, when his parents aged, he became their sole caregiver and developed a passion that he later turned into a career.
“When I serve a senior, I am fulfilling my passion to care for Seniors and preserving the legacy of the Senior to live in dignity and pride,” says Chris.
Brittany had a similar positive influence from Chris. She spent her childhood and early adulthood, volunteering in her dad’s senior care community initiatives. After 18 years of operations management in the retail sector, she logged out of the system. She will join him at APAH’s new location in Orange Park.
“I love serving seniors as they always give me a smile and are happy you are there for them,” says Brittany.
Firstly, Chris and Brittany chose A Place At Home for its commitment to improving the quality of life among the elderly. Secondly, Chris pointed out that APAH’s CARE philosophy, which stands for Compassionate, Accountable, Respectful, and Ethical, accurately reflects his personal beliefs.
