BURKBURNETT, Texas (July 16, 2021)—HomeWell Care Services, franchised by HomeWell Franchising Inc., a non-medical in-home care franchisors, is featured this month in an episode of “Designing Spaces” focused on aging in place. The episode aired Friday, July 9, 2021, at 7:30 a.m. (ET) on Lifetime with an encore presentation airing on Friday, July 16 at 7:30 a.m. (ET). A stream of the episode is available at the Designing Spaces website. 

According to AARP research, nearly 90% of people aged 65 and over want to stay in their home for as long as possible. However, family members of seniors may have concerns about the ability to maintain independence, including finances, living arrangements, health, mobility, safety and caretaking. 

The hosts of the show approach this delicate situation with in-home care experts Ronnie Taylor, owner of HomeWell Care Services in Austin, Texas and Michelle Cone, SVP Training and Brand Programs. We see Taylor deliver an expert assessment and consultation for Phyllis, who recently suffered a fall at home, and her daughter Zade, to design a custom in-home care plan that ensures her safety and independence. 

“We are thrilled to be featured in an episode that is bringing this topic out into the open. Many families struggle with having these conversations with their aging family members. Part of what HomeWell agencies offer is a consultation and assessment where clients and their family members can talk openly about what is going on. Our goal is to provide a personalized care plan that fits that specific client, and we work very closely with the family and keep that communication open,” says Taylor. 

Also appearing in the episode are brands Philips Hearing, ServiceMaster Restore and American Water Resources. 

“To be featured with leading brands in the senior and home space is a testament to the brand positioning and identity work we embarked on back in 2018,” says Mishelle Payne, VP Marketing. “The elevated brand image is a standout in the home care industry, and we are very proud to integrate our brand with Designing Spaces, Lifetime, and other leaders.”

The episode will continue to air in syndication, and can also be viewed at designingspaces.tv.
