What Makes Happier At Home The Best In-Home Care Solution for Your Family?

  • Caregiver Continuity – We strive to keep the same caregiver for each visit. Our patient-family is served by consistent caregivers to foster trusting and meaningful relationships. This allows for superior oversight of the patient’s well-being over time, as behaviors are observed closely and changes are recognized. This in-depth relationship philosophy helps to ensure better medical compliance and observations in condition changes.
  • Community Connection – We are locally-owned by health service professionals, with family pharmacies that are invested in the collective health of those we serve. Advocacy and awareness of health and medication issues distinguishes our team in home-based care. When communicating with healthcare professionals in hospitals, senior living residences, or outpatient facilities, expert care advocacy benefits all of those we serve.
  • Flexible Care Hours – From around-the-clock continuous care to brief one-hour sessions, our schedules are customized to meet the exact needs of our clients and their families. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Happier at Home provides more than elder care, our services are available to everyone. We provide specialized care for a diverse range of clients, including the disabled, seniors, and those suffering from Alzheimer’s & Dementia.

Our patients are happier and healthier at home. Our families have peace of mind.

After graduating in 1989 from hometown alma mater University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy, Leslie’s career path veered into the field of Long-Term-Care, serving as head of pharmacy operations for several national LTC chains.  In 1998, she was recruited to Anacortes, WA by a start-up software company, tasked with spearheading the development of a software solution unique to the LTC pharmacy industry.  The product is known today as Axys.

Eventually life led her to Iowa, where she lives today with her husband and family.  In 2018, Leslie and husband Mike purchased Sumpter Pharmacy, bringing her professional life full circle, fulfilling her intense passion for community pharmacy as well as her entrepreneurial spirit.  While at Sumpter Leslie has gained a true caring for the people of Adel and surrounding areas.  This caring is why she’s so excited to provide even more services to the community by keeping people Happier At Home!
