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 Set to Open in Orange Park Florida

A Place At Home - Orange Park

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.

About A Place At Home

APAH provides personalized in-home care services attuned to the specific needs of each client. Through the service model dubbed CARE, APAH helps seniors to live at home for longer. They stay in a familiar and comfortable environment with close support and a degree of independence. However, when it’s in the patient’s best interest to move to a nursing home, then we find them the best facilities and facilitate a smoother transition.

We have open territories coast to coast for entrepreneurs looking to grow a business that makes a positive impact on the community.

A Place At Home’s Story

In 2012, A Place At Home began offering a range of Senior-Focused Care services. These services including In-Home Care, Care Coordination, and Senior Living Alternatives (SLA).

Their first franchise location in South Denver celebrated the second anniversary of their grand opening in April 2020.

“I’m incredibly humbled that we are making an impact in communities across this nation – not only because we are helping seniors through the aging process, but also because we are helping entrepreneurs live out their dreams of business ownership,” said Jerod Evanich, President of A Place At Home.

A Place At Home is dedicated to preserving the quality of life for seniors by giving them the support they need to stay as independent as possible and couldn’t be more thrilled with receiving this prestigious recognition for their brand.
