Renowned Senior Focused Care Solutions Company, A Place At Home, Awards New Senior Care Franchise in Papillion
Rick and Kris Perkins have cared about the safety of Larimer County and Douglas County residents for a long time.
Rick is a former counselor and manager who spent 20 years with Child and Adult Protective Services, as well as serving as Program Coordinator for the Juvenile Assessment Center. Kris is a former 911 dispatcher and EMT, and worked in sales and deployment roles for Motorola Solutions, Inc. where she deployed public safety software across the United States.
Now this husband-and-wife team is turning their attention to senior care issues by opening a new A Place at Home franchise in Papillon, NE. The APAH innovative care model has been wildly successful because it tailors senior care solutions to the needs of individual seniors and their families.
Each franchise offers a wide range of in-home care services, care coordination services, and senior living placement and transition services.
The Omaha-based company has experienced explosive growth all over the country after its launch in 2012.
The Papillion franchise will open at 10791 S. 72nd St., Suite #104 in Papillion, and will also serve Bellevue, Offutt, Ralston, Chalco, La Vista, Council Bluffs, and Center Lake.
The couple came to this decision after seeing the challenges for care and living transition for Rick’s 97-year old grandmother. “Helping seniors age in their own homes has become a passion for me,” he says.
“We chose A Place at Home after completing a market analysis on multiple franchises in the home care industry,” adds Kris. “We quickly realized that the men who created A Place at Home truly cared about what they were doing, and why. And we felt the four core values of the APAH C.A.R.E. philosophy—Compassionate, Accountable, Respectful, and Ethical—align with our own personal values.”
The main goal of A Place at Home is to help seniors stay in their homes as long as it is a safe, viable option. Transitions to senior care centers are offered as a free option when an APAH’s services simply won’t suffice any longer.
“We understand enlisting the help of professionals to care for loved ones is a tough decision to make,” said Rick. “We want to be able to relieve some of the stress on families when they’re faced with that decision. We want you 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 facility, when the time comes.”
To A Place at Home 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.”
“It always starts with a conversation,” stresses Jerod. “We only want to work with people who are truly in alignment with the C.A.R.E. philosophy. If your personal values already rest on that foundation then we’re happy to help you parlay your professional background and acumen into becoming a successful A Place At Home owner.”
