About Our at Home Care Services

A Place At Home started out of our founders’ own needs for support while navigating the uncertainty and anxiety of caring for aging loved ones. That’s why we’re so committed to providing excellent, consistent, and comprehensive at-home care to families throughout the Little Rock area, including North Little Rock, Conway, and the surrounding communities.

Meet Our Owner

Natalie Watts

Owner

Natalie had 25 years of experience leading sales and project management teams in the telecommunications industry when she opened A Place At Home – Little Rock. She’s been a part of the Little Rock community for 30 years. While the leap from telecommunications to senior care may seem to be a big one, Natalie wanted to make a bigger impact on the community than a corporate role could provide. Since opening in 2019, she’s done just that – brought compassionate and professional care to Little Rock.
