From the time he joined Home Helpers in 2002, John Squires was a passionate ambassador for the Home Helpers and Direct Link brands. He understood the power of a network of offices with a common brand and a common commitment: providing excellent care.
An incredibly strong strategic thinker who could build great relationships with anyone who worked with him or even knew him, John was always first to step up and take on an initiative. He often spoke with franchise candidates considering Home Helpers as a business opportunity; he also mentored new owners as they launched their own businesses within the franchise system.
Among his many contributions and achievements within the Home Helpers care provider system, John served as a founding member of the Philadelphia Co-Op that won the 2008 Pioneer Award. He was also recognized as a 2009 IFA Franchisee of the Year. In that same year, he was honored with the Adam Brown Spirit of Home Helpers Award. In 2008, he received the Home Helpers President’s Award.
Continually providing his leadership, time, talents, and friendship to our developing system of franchise owners while growing and leading his own successful business, John left an enduring mark on the company and its franchisees.
John tragically passed away in November of 2011, but his vision and mission live on: his wife Janet and business partner Tom Carroll continue his Home Helpers mission.
