Home Instead Senior Care has announced that Jaime Peñaherrera has taken over ownership of the American Canyon franchise that’s part of an international network dedicated to keeping seniors in their homes and out of the hospital.
The local Home Instead office, serving Napa and Solano counties and located in the Canyon Plaza shopping center, provides services to seniors in private or rental residences and assisted living communities.
“I was introduced to Home Instead Senior Care as my own mother was getting older, and I began to think about ways to ensure she was receiving the best care possible,” said Peñaherrera in a press release. “This is an important cause to me, and I believe every family deserves individualized in-home senior care with a compassionate touch. I am proud to become a part of an organization with such strong values, professionalism and exceptional services.”
Before becoming a franchise owner of Home Instead, Peñaherrera worked in healthcare for large, for-profit global companies as well as nonprofit, community oriented organizations, according to the announcement.
Home Instead provides in-home care to seniors through professional caregivers who assist seniors, including those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, with personal care, respite care, transportation and hospice care.
“Many families do not realize that it’s possible for their aging adults to live safely, comfortably and independently in their own homes as they age. It is our goal to set the benchmark for non-medical, in-home care in Napa and Solano Counties and the surroundings areas,” said Peñaherrera. “I’m excited to continue serving the community in this new role at Home Instead Senior Care, which aligns so well with my own values.”
Home Instead Senior Care was founded in 1994 and now has over 1,000 franchises worldwide.
