Gary Lafreniere

Prior to opening A Place At Home Gary was a Co-Founder and the COO of a software company for 20 years. In addition to being COO, Gary managed a team regularly recognized with award-winning customer service. His passion for home care comes from his personal experience in caring for his mother Ruth before she passed in April 2020. Gary saw the challenges first hand and witnessed the amazing compassion from the caregivers in his community. When his company was acquired in 2020 the decision was an easy one for him and his family to open up the first A Place At Home location in Massachusetts.

Michelle Taranto
Michelle Taranto

Community Liaison
Michelle has over 22 years of experience in marketing and client management but it’s her personal experience with elder care that brought her to A Place At Home. In 2020, she left her job to care for her mother Lorraine who had Alzheimer’s. She passed away a short two months later and that was when Michelle felt called to pursue a career helping seniors. She is passionate about helping other families navigate through similar transitions.

Marlie Francois

Recruiting and Retention Coordinator
Marlie has spent the last 10 years as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) at Lahey Hospital.  Prior to that she also worked in Assisted Living Communities and began her career doing in-home care. Marlie never looked at her job as “work”,  as a mother of 2 she says caring for people comes second nature to her.  Marlie will oversee the recruiting and retention of our caregiver staff, she will also provide training and will visit with our customers.

Belinda Cronin

Client Care Coordinator
Belinda comes to A Place At Home with years of in-home care coordination experience in addition to her managerial experience in the hospitality industry.  Our philosophy of ‘We Are CARE’ is what drew Belinda to this new opportunity as she has excelled at coordinating care for her many clients in both industries.  A Place At Home is growing fast, Belinda has joined the team to help in the growth of the company and her career.
