Innovative senior care model to be made available to residents this fall.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, August 28, 2018 – Former Marine Alex Caudill is no stranger to the healthcare industry, nor to senior care. But he saw gaps in the local senior care scene, leading him to become the latest franchisee for A Place At Home, an innovative Senior-Focused care model. The new branch, located at 10601 N. Hayden Road, Suite 108 in Scottsdale, is scheduled to open later this fall.

Caudill has cared for seniors both personally and professionally, and has seen multiple family members and friends through assisted living, homecare, and hospice.

“Every person deserves high quality care, regardless of their circumstances. I believe every company that serves seniors should go above and beyond to make sure every person has a top-notch experience while they’re being cared for by others,” says Caudill. “Every person’s needs are a little different, and I appreciate the APAH model, which allows caring professionals to tailor the experience to every person.”

Caudill goes on to say he was impressed by the company’s accessibility and dedication.  “I aligned with A Place At Home’s core values, ‘We are CARE,’ because it stands for the core values I live by personally. Being compassionate, accountable, respectful, and ethical are core values I teach my kids and try to emulate on a daily basis. They help care for people who can no longer care for themselves. That is the epitome of selflessness and compassion. I can honestly say every time we’ll be caring for a senior we’ll be caring for them as if they were our own family.”

Caudill spent 10 years serving in the Marine Corps, both on active duty and on the reserves. He spent the next seven years holding multiple leadership positions in the healthcare industry, including operations, sales, marketing, and business development. This has given him an extensive education in leadership, sales, and the operational success of a healthcare company.

A Place At Home launched in 2012 in Omaha, NE. After experiencing explosive growth, co-founders Jerod Evanich and Dustin Distefano continued fulfilling their mission: to be Passionate Professionals Providing the Compassionate Care Solutions You Need, Where and When You Need Us. To that end, they began awarding new franchises across the nation. A Place At Home offers a unique “Senior-Focused care” model which provides a continuum of  in-home care, care coordination, community placement, and staffing services.

Distefano was especially impressed with Caudill. “Alex’s positive energy, military background and his personal experience caring for others—his father in particular—was a perfect fit for our CARE values. I am extremely excited to work with him and to get him up and going in the Phoenix market.”

“We are excited to bring on another franchisee with ambitions to help people and to grow their own A Place At Home business in their community,” adds Evanich.
