Care Team

Our team members were hand-selected by the A Place at Home management team for their professionalism, expertise, and compassion

Joe and Janis Christie, Owners

Joe and Janis both had personal experiences that made them aware of the need for professional personalized assistance to seniors and their families during transitions from a current situation to the next stage in their life.

“My mother was ill for many years,” says Janis. “My father was caring for her, but he needed assistance with her care. He didn’t know how to find it, or where. He had to work his way through the difficult process of balancing my mother’s needs with his own by himself.”

Joe adds, “Watching two loved ones struggle with age-related illnesses brought awareness that seniors and their families need assistance during periods of transition. My mother’s husband was bed-ridden, and she was left to care for them both, despite having neither the skill, nor the stamina, to do so.”

Joe was contacted by a social worker to inform him that his father’s Alzheimer’s disease had left him unable to care for himself. “I was named as his guardian. Having little understanding of what this entailed, it took me weeks to sort through the responsibilities to make meaningful progress with his care. Needing so much help, and being unable to find it, was an eye-opener for me.”

Joe and Janis were led to pursue the senior care business in order to lessen the burden and uncertainty for both seniors, and their families and to be the professional resource providing compassionate care solutions.

We chose A Place At Home because their vision and mission mirror that of our own and we were impressed by A Place at Home because it offers a continuum of care model that’s affordable, adaptable, and well-coordinated. In addition, A Place At Home’s “We are CARE” philosophy is a commitment to the Company’s core values of Compassionate, Accountable, Respectful, and Ethical.

Rooted In Care

Trees hold significant symbolism. The Tree of Life is a concept spanning across multiple schools of thought. Whether it’s art, religion, or literature, the Tree of Life largely represents the intertwining of all living things.

At A Place at Home North Texas trees represent a powerful meaning.  Like others, we think of trees as the symbol of the vitality of life, and those that came before us, and those that will carry on after we are gone. It stands for families and ancestors. It stands for strength, stability, and nourishment.

Like families, the branches grow and extend. The leaves, while in appearance similar, each have their own uniqueness and texture. The roots keep it stable and extract nutrients from the earth to help it develop, grow, and repair.

We think of the care that we provide to families and those in need as the roots that support the family system when it is needed the most.  It is a means to help nourish the lives of loved ones and the strength that families need when they can’t do it all themselves. It is a belief that caring, above all else, is the path to ensuring generations can live on in the past, present, and future with hope and happiness.

When we developed our logo, we thought long and hard about what it means to provide care to families. We saw the tree as that symbol that would represent our commitment to the lives of all that we serve. And when one of those that we have cared for is gone, we plant trees in honor of them through the Arbor Day Foundation. This assures families that the life of their loved one has meant something of significance and will carry on for future generations to provide a symbol of lasting peace and comfort.

A Place at Home North Texas is rooted in CARE.

Client Testimonials

A Place At Home – North Texas answers you whenever you call them, went into detail about the clients, let you know when you are doing a good job, and when you tell them your experience level they put you with the right person. – Felisa, Caregiver


A Place At Home – North Texas truly cares about who they work for and they believe in what they are doing. – Michelline, Client


After I entered an assisted living community, Janis from A Place At Home stayed with me daily for a period of 5/6 hours. My family had asked if she would do this because I was being quarantined because of the virus. The family was concerned with me being alone for 24/7 in a rather small apartment. Janis really put her whole self into making my time of confinement pleasant.  She just pitched in and did anything I needed. She did some cleaning, dishwashing, preparation of coffee so all I had to do was push a button the next morning. She is a real thoughtful person and even included loving my best friend Paco (a 19 year old fur baby). We passed the day doing mostly just fun things including watching movies on tv, reading, and playing games. She shopped for groceries for me and Paco. Janis prepared food if we needed it and my dog Paco liked that a lot as she brought him grilled chicken. His very favorite. After her time was up, he searched everywhere for her. Still does when he thinks of her. We miss her a lot.” – Nell, Client

I am almost 90 years Old. I live alone with a little dog named Piper to keep me company. My immediate family members are deceased, and my distant relatives live too far away to care for me. I need a walker to walk around and I cannot drive. I also have rheumatoid arthritis and live in pain. As I found it more and more difficult to take care of myself, I began to look for help. My neighbor suggested that I move to assisted living, but the thought of having to cope with moving terrified me. So I prayed for guidance and searched the internet for a solution. God really does answer prayer, and I found A Place at Home in North Texas and called them up. Janis and Joe Christie came to my house for an initial meeting and I was instantly and honestly impressed with their willingness to listen to my needs, answer all my questions and “be there” for me.

Never in my wildest dreams did I expect so much compassion and solace as I received from them. They were receptive to all my needs, including finding a care giver who would be willing to walk my little dog…because I couldn’t. Janis even took him for a walk while she was there… and I never expected that. Since then she has been like a mother to me, generously providing everything I needed when I needed it and never making me feel that it was a big deal. I hired them and they have continuously surprised me with services I never expected, including veterans benefits since my late husband fought in World War II. She came to my house when I thought I was having a stroke and called the paramedics to take me to the hospital. She even took care of my little dog so I wouldn’t have to worry about him!! When I returned home she made sure that someone visited me every day and took care of me. Janis and Joe are never further away from me than a phone call or a text message. They never failed to respond immediately whenever I needed help, so I never felt alone anymore since I met them. My life is now fuller and richer than ever before. I am richly blessed. – Shonsaya, Client
