A Place At Home Revolutionizes Senior Care in Katy with Compassion and Community Connection

A Place At Home Revolutionizes Senior Care in Katy with Compassion and Community Connection

April 17 2024

A Place At Home is ushering in a new age of compassionate senior care for the community. Co-owned by Arnold Barrera III and Rebecca Barrera, residents of Cinco Ranch, this local franchise opened its doors in October 2023 to provide personalized care to aging populations in the Katy area.

The Barreras, dedicated parents and grandparents, have always been motivated by the desire to serve. Rebecca, a Registered Nurse with over three decades of experience, was moved to establish this franchise after witnessing her own mother's struggle with independent living. Following an unfortunate fall at a senior community, Rebecca and her sisters had to reevaluate their mother's care. Rebecca realized the need for better information through the decision making process, sparking her desire to help others navigate senior care options and ultimately, opening A Place At Home in Katy.

Arthur Barrera, whose career has also been devoted to the medical community for three decades, explains their driving force, stating, "Providing support to our local and surrounding community is our main focus. It's about so much more than business for us; we genuinely want to make a difference in people's lives."

A Place At Home is a compassionate and dedicated provider of a wide range of at-home care services. With a focus on both non-medical in-home care and care coordination, A Place At Home offers a variety of options including senior living alternatives, companion care, healthcare navigation, personal care, and lifestyle care. The caring team of professionals at A Place At Home includes highly experienced caregivers who are committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics and respect. 

Their passion and dedication are reflected in the franchise's client-focused services. The most rewarding aspect of their work, according to Arthur, is "knowing that we are providing a service that offers crucial support and relief for individuals and families in need."

In the spirit of community involvement, the Barreras recently joined the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce to share their services, network, and get more involved in the local community. On March 13, A Place at Home was honored with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, officiated by the Katy Area Chamber.

Matthew Ferraro, president and CEO of the Katy Area Chamber of Commerce, offered his support for A Place at Home, stating, "A Place At Home embodies the spirit of our community — service, care, and engagement. We're thrilled to have them as an active member of the Chamber."

The Barreras are not only business owners – they are also active community members. While Arthur is involved with Katy Elks, Rebecca regularly participates in local events, supporting the community they now serve.

Beyond simply providing quality care, A place At Home serves as consistent resource for guidance and support to family members throughout the aging journey. As the number of residents requiring compassionate, personalized elder care continues to grow, A Place at Home is poised to make a significant difference in the lives of many Katy seniors and their families.
