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.

About Us

Toby and Dana Porter have been in the pharmacy business collectively for over 40 years.  They currently own So Cal Pharmacy Group with four retail pharmacy locations in southern California.  

Their pharmacy family has been asked numerous times over the years for recommendations on home care services.  As the local provider of home medical equipment in Whittier through Bright Plaza Pharmacy, Toby and Dana felt that branching out into the home care companion service industry was a very necessary growth of their family business.  Their patients trust them for the highest level of customer care and Toby and Dana will continue to provide this superior care into the home setting.

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.  They have seen this need and are committed to helping families and their loved ones maintain their independence for as long as possible. 

Their Happier at Home division will allow them to provide in-home care for seniors and disabled, as well as providing comprehensive geriatric care management.

Toby Porter


Toby’s wide range of capabilities built over 25 years of pharmacy industry experience provides our team a deep reservoir of knowledge with which to serve clients.  His skillset includes certification as a licensed pharmacy technician, certified orthotic fitter, home medical equipment specialist, and pharmacy manager. This exceptional breadth of professional expertise translates to great efficiency in helping patients receive the answers they seek, relief from symptoms they may be experiencing, or navigation through a complex healthcare system. 

As the medical field has become increasingly digital with online services, Toby not only follows these trends, he is a leader. He oversees all technology, installations, IT, and repairs for the So Cal Pharmacy Group. He consistently seeks the path that combines the positives of digital medicine with the invaluable person-to-person care with which he is intimately familiar from his professional training in a traditional pharmacy environment. 

As a business merchant and a family man raising sons in Whittier, it’s important to Toby that he and his staff be a reliable community-based health resource. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, they co-directed over 20 local clinics, vaccinating the local Whittier community, as well as partnered with the East Whittier City School District to provide weekly COVID-19 antigen testing for unvaccinated employees. This partnership allowed Toby to directly impact his local community, giving back, and ensured the district’s return to learn protocols went over smoothly.

Toby is energized and inspired to extend his expertise of home medical equipment and senior care into the At Home Companion Care space where his passion for people and management can thrive.
