Our goal is to help seniors remain independent in their own home or place of residence.  Our mission is to provide the highest quality of care to seniors. Our team of dedicated in-home caregivers can assist with companionship and mental stimulation, memory care, light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation and planning, bathing set up and monitoring, dressing, grooming, transportation, medication reminders, overnight care and more.

Every individual’s circumstances are unique, so we customize care plans specifically tailored to support each client and carefully match them with a trained and trusted caregiver best suited to their needs. We provide service in private homes and apartments, independent & assisted living communities, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and rehabilitation centers throughout Buffalo, NY.

What Makes Happier at Home the Best In-Home Care Solution for Your Family?

  • Caregiver Continuity – We strive to keep the same caregiver with their client for every visit.  This promotes the development of a strong relationship and trust between the client and the caregiver, making the experience feel like a friendly visit to lend a hand. This allows for superior oversight of the patient’s well-being over time, as behaviors are observed closely and changes are recognized. Our 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 four-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.

What Our Clients & Their Families Say About Us

About Us

Joseph Voelkl founder of Buffalo Pharmacies, began servicing the pharmaceutical needs of the Buffalo community back in 1955. Through the years, he has taken care of numerous families at all stages of life.

Having seen over the years, many family and friends who have had debilitating life events and the lack of consistent, compassionate and reliable care, he and his sons decided to open Happier at Home to meet these needs. So many families today do not know where to turn with their questions and need assistance keeping their loved ones in their homes.  There are many incredible facilities in the community but often the loved one desires to stay in their home.  Sometimes loved ones need a little help with medication management, going to the doctor,  taking care of their homes and daily chores.  We have seen this need and are committed to helping families and their loved ones maintain their independence for as long as possible. We firmly believe and are committed to the saying, ‘There is no place like home’.

Our Happier at Home division will allow us to provide in-home care for seniors and disabled, as well as providing compressive geriatric care management.
The Voelkl family and its team members, are committed to being advocates for seniors and to provide a positive impact in the lives of the disabled, seniors and their families.

Our Team

Joseph Voelkl


Joseph Voelkl, the only son of German immigrants, his father was a butcher and mother was a cleaning lady, instilled in him that hard work and determination will always enable you to achieve your goals and aspirations. With this knowledge, Joseph decided to enroll in Pharmacy School at the University of Buffalo. After becoming a pharmacist, he purchased his first retail pharmacy and grew his business to a total of 8 retail stores now called Buffalo Pharmacies. Recognizing the changes in the Health Care Industry, he has created and adapted his business in the Health Care market to suit the needs of his customers and the Western New York community. Joseph has been fortunate that two of his five children, Trent and Todd, decided to carry on the tradition of compassionate health care. Trent and Todd have both been a part of Buffalo Pharmacies for over 20 years and are committed to carrying on his values and ideals of empathetic care. Today, Buffalo Pharmacies is comprised of retail pharmacies, home medical equipment and provides medications for nursing homes, senior and assisted living facilities.

Joseph has served on numerous boards during his career, including Niagara Lutheran Health Foundation, Hauptman-Woodward, Key Bank, The Buffalo Philharmonic, Erie County Medical Center Lifeline Foundation and is a recipient of the Signum Fidea Award from St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute.

Several years later, Trent moved up to Vice President of Operations for Buffalo Pharmacies.

Trent has served on numerous boards and been involved in the community serving on the Amherst Police Foundation, Buffalo Zoo Board of Directors, Brother’s of Mercy Foundation, Niagara Lutheran Foundation, Erie County Medical Center Lifeline Foundation and was a Business First 40 under 40 recipient in 1996.
