Young Entrepreneur Incorporates Technology into Home Care Franchise for Affordable, 21st Century Care
Date:11/12/2013

Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

Justin Johnston knows what it’s like to watch a parent’s health progressively decline while trying to manage their in-home care and security. He knows the importance of maintaining a person’s safety and comfort while keeping the care affordable and effective.

That’s why Johnston, 32, recently opened Home Helpers & Direct Link of Walnut Creek. Founded in 1997, Home Helpers is the nation’s leading franchise specializing in comprehensive home care for seniors, new mothers and individuals needing recuperative and continuing assistance. Direct Link is its proprietary line of 24/7 medical alert systems, including a fall sensor, automated medication dispenser and vital signs monitoring units.

But Johnston is taking the business one step further – he’s supplementing his Home Helpers franchise with his technology company, Twilight Solutions, to bridge the gap between in-home health care and technological security solutions.

"When I was providing direct care to my terminally ill father, I felt he would have been better served with an option of home care and assistive technology- someone who could personally assist during crucial hours of the day along with technology solutions that could supplement with monitoring. For example, my father would occasionally wander out of the house and it would have been extremely helpful to have a security system with a nurse available to observe and identify that this was not normal and could immediately call for help in situations like that," he said.

“That’s what Home Helpers & Direct Link of Walnut Creek will be able to do. We can set up those security and technology measures while providing the in-home care so many need,” Johnston added.

Home Helpers & Direct Link offers free in-home consultations and works with each client to create a flexible, affordable care plan based on a person’s individual needs. Services offered include companionship, personal hygiene, meal preparation and transportation as well as medical services such as medication management, vital signs monitoring and care management. Johnston’s business also will be able to provide home security systems specially designed for seniors and those needing in-home care.

“We can create a plan that fits exactly what a person or a family is looking for, especially with the customizable combination of home care and assisted technology,” Johnston said. “And as a person’s needs change, which they will, we’ll be there.”
