New owners aim to grow A Place At Home’s South Denver location

A Place At Home South Denver Franchisees

Alex Caudill and C.W. Hurst, both of whom have extensive experience within A Place At Home, have partnered to purchase the innovative senior-focused care company’s South Denver location. This was the company’s first franchise location. The new owners plan to move it to a new location at 8310 S. Valley Highway, Suite 300, Englewood, CO 80112.

About A Place At Home

A Place At Home’s mission is to be Passionate Professionals Providing the Compassionate Care Solutions You Need, Where and When You Need Us. They offer a senior-focused model of care that provides a continuum of in-home care, care coordination, community placement, and staffing services. The company’s goal is to preserve the quality of life for seniors by giving them the support they need to stay as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Professional Dedication

Caudill and Hurst are both uniquely experienced on a personal and professional level to own A Place At Home franchises and to continue building on its mission. Caudill, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps for 10 years, owns three A Place At Home franchises in Arizona. He was awarded top-performer of the franchise system in 2020. Caudill held multiple leadership positions in the healthcare industry, including roles in marketing, operations, sales, and business development. He knows what it takes to help a franchise succeed. Hurst serves as A Place At Home’s Vice President of Business Development in Scottsdale. This role gave him extensive experience within and knowledge of the company.

Personal Experience

They were both inspired to join A Place At Home after personal experiences caring for senior loved ones demonstrated the need for top-notch care that’s tailored specifically for each person.

Hurst and his wife helped his father, who had Parkinson’s disease, so he learned first-hand the challenges involved. Although they provided the best possible care, they weren’t professional caregivers. Trying to fulfill this role diminished their quality time together. By providing professional, trusted care for seniors, A Place At Home gives their loved ones peace of mind. It also allows them to focus on the invaluable roles that only they can fulfill.

Caudill was similarly inspired by his personal experience after witnessing multiple friends and family members in assisted living, home care, and hospice. Their experiences served as a clear demonstration of the need for personalized, compassionate care.

“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. I try to emulate them 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,” he explains.

Planning for the Future

The new owners plan to retain existing caregivers and recruit more in the near future. With incentives like retention bonuses and flexible scheduling, they’re confident they can attract additional qualified caregivers.

“We’re excited to bring our experience and energy to this new location and really see it take off,” Hurst says.

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.
