Homecare is a growing market in Canada and Nurse Next Door is the country’s fastest growing seniors care franchise. We have locations across Canada and this has already proven that our business is a model of success.
Our centralized, 24/7 call centre handles all our franchisee’s schedule needs nationwide. Our system is one of a kind in the industry and allows us to shoulder much of the administrative tasks, allowing our franchisees to focus on running their business.
Nurse Next Door has received multiple top employer awards. This is attributed to our flexible shifts, in-house companionship training program, specially designed Mommy Shift, and comfortable work culture. Our partners only hire the best caregivers in their areas and deliver the best service to their clients.
Our leaders are the best in the industry. Our cofounders John DeHart and Ken Sim were listed as two of the Top 40 Under 40 in Vancouver and received the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Emerging Entrepreneurs in 2006. Our advisory board is filled with industry professionals who continue to guide the direction of our seniors care franchise.
Our franchisees take advantage of a powerful national brand. Nurse Next Door has received media coverage by several major outlets furthering our profile and brand recognition in the country. Recent coverage includes CTV, CBC, GlobalTV, The National Post and The Globe and Mail.
The Nurse Next Door package consists of a seven-week training program ending with an intense one-week hands-on program at the Nurse Next Door Head Office. Following this there are regular weekly support visits from a qualified business coach. Our ongoing support programs are an essential feature of the Nurse Next Door success story, and they have earned us a spot among the 2009 Franchise Satisfaction Awards which celebrates the top performing franchises in North America.
As homecare is becoming more needed while the population ages, Nurse Next Door is poised for rapid growth. Statistics show that the size of the elderly population will more than double in Canada over the next 20 years and this will put a heavy strain on the healthcare system. Nurse Next Door is an affordable solution for Canadian families and the perfect business opportunity for entrepreneurs looking into starting a seniors care franchise.
“Really, it boils down to systems. The people at Nurse Next Door have built incredible systems that have helped make us so successful and we’re definitely excited for the growth to come.” - Chris Wilkinson, Nurse Next Door Franchise Partner
