A Place At Home Opens Third Location in Texas

A Place At Home, which offers in-home senior care and other services designed to help seniors age with dignity and respect, is pleased to announce the opening of our third location in Texas.
The new franchise is located at 2001 Timberloch Place, Suite 551K, The Woodlands, TX 77380 and serves The Woodlands as well as surrounding communities of Conroe, Spring, Magnolia, Montgomery, Willis, Pinehurst, Shenandoah, Oak Ridge North, Rayford, Tamina, Panorama Village, Egypt, Chateau Woods, Sleepy Hollow, Decker Prairie, Stagecoach, Karen, Dobbin, and Bobville.

How we help

We understand that navigating care for yourself or a loved one can be confusing and overwhelming, and we’re here to offer compassionate, experienced help. From an initial meeting, assessment, and development of a care plan to monitoring and evaluating the care you or your loved one receives, we’re here to help every step of the way.

Adam and Trista Johnson are the owners of the new Texas location, and they bring a caring and professional background to the company and take pride in the mission of helping seniors to maintain their independence. The couple has two sons, Hayden and Gavin, and they’re pleased to be closer to Trista’s family in southern Texas after moving to the area.

A personal connection

Adam credits growing up on a farm in Minnesota with teaching him the value of a hard day’s work. He earned a bachelor’s degree in organizational communication and has a background in disability insurance.

“I began my career in retail management, but after several years was drawn into the disability insurance space where I worked as a manager and consultant,” he explained. “I enjoy helping people and look forward to making a positive difference in my community. My wife and I are excited to tackle this fulfilling new challenge!”

Trista earned a law degree from the University of North Dakota and has enjoyed helping clients navigate complex issues and finding solutions that help them reach their goals. She and Adam were looking for an opportunity to help people and to make a positive difference in their community, so they chose A Place At Home.

Her personal experience with coordinating care for her parents, both of whom have health challenges, also served as a catalyst. Her father suffered a stroke over five years ago when Trista lived out of state, and ultimately, she and Adam decided to move to Texas to be closer to her parents. Since then, her mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and her father has been diagnosed with leukemia.

“I am so grateful to be close now to help them get to their appointments and coordinate care. I want to help others do the same and make sure our seniors’ needs are being met,” she said.

The clear choice

The couple chose A Place At Home because it’s quickly becoming a national leader in in-home senior-focused care. The robust offering of services provided, along with their ‘We are CARE’ philosophy and the organization’s overall mission, made A Place At Home a clear choice, the couple added. CARE refers to the company’s core values of being Compassionate, Accountable, Respectful, and Ethical.

“Finding passionate entrepreneurs like Trista and Adam that also share our same CARE values is the exact reason why we started franchising A Place At Home. We not only feel rewarded being able to bring a higher standard of care to communities across the nation but also helping great people reach their goals of business ownership,” said Jerod Evanich, President and Co-Founder of A Place At Home.

A Place At Home Sells First Corporate-Owned Location

A Place At Home Omaha Owners

A Place At Home – Omaha Has New Franchisee Owners With Local Roots 

Omaha-based A Place At Home is now owned 100% by franchisees.

The day before the 2nd Annual A Place At Home Franchise Convention, A Place At Home Franchise sold its original Omaha location to Papillion franchisees, Rick and Kris Perkins. 

“I can’t think of a better match for our Omaha-location than Kris and Rick. They won our 2020 Rookie of the Year award at this year’s franchisee convention. They’ve cared about the seniors of our community for a long time. I am completely confident in their ability to take over Omaha operations. The staff loves them, we love them, it was a perfect match,” said Dustin Distefano, CEO and Co-Founder of A Place At Home.


Rick is a former counselor and manager who spent 20 years with Child and Adult Protective Services. He also served as Program Coordinator for the Juvenile Assessment Center. Kris is a former 911 dispatcher and EMT. She also worked in sales and deployment roles for Motorola Solutions, Inc. where she deployed public safety software across the United States. This husband-and-wife team have been running the Papillion franchise location for over a year now.

“Helping seniors age in their own homes has become a passion for us. The Omaha team has been wonderful to work with during this transition,” Kris says.

“We understand enlisting the help of professionals to care for loved ones is a tough decision to make,” said Rick. “We want the Omaha community to know we’ll treat your family like we’d treat our own family. And we want to ease the stress of the transition to an assisted living community when the time comes.”


The Papillion franchise office is located at 10791 S. 72nd St., Suite #104, and serves Bellevue, Offutt, Ralston, Chalco, La Vista, Council Bluffs, and Center Lake.

Their new Omaha office location will be at 9829 S 168th Ave, Suite A in 2021. There will be a central satellite office located at Terrace Plaza, 11414 W Center Rd. They will also serve Elkhorn, Fremont, Blair, Wahoo and Gretna. Additionally, Iowa communities of Council Bluffs, Crescent, and Glenwood will also be served.


To A Place At Home co-founders, Jerod Evanich and Dustin Distefano, awarding franchises to the right people is an important part of fulfilling their mission: “To be passionate professionals providing the compassionate care solutions you need, when and where you need us.” 

“Reaching this major goal of ours. The sale of our original location, means we can now focus solely on the franchise side of the business. We will continue finding great people to make successful owners,” said Jerod Evanich.
