Nurse Next Door Home Health Care Franchise Opens First U.S. Location

Franchise System Led Home Health Care Revolution in Canada; Plans 25 More U.S. Locations in Next Year

VANCOUVER, BC - (Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) - Nurse Next Door's cheerful, holistic approach to home health care has revolutionized the industry in Canada. Today, the franchise system opens the first of a series of locations in the United States, seeking to transform a field too long focused on merely extending life instead of celebrating it.

"We're tremendously excited to open our first U.S. location, and we've reached agreements on seven others, which certainly will help us quickly build market share," said CEO John DeHart. "We anticipate many more locations as people discover how much Nurse Next Door can contribute to seniors' quality of life."

The first operational American Nurse Next Door location is in Mission Viejo, Calif., and owned by Tony Uzzi, a 54-year-old former nurse and pharmaceutical company executive who wanted more control over his career and more meaning in his work. Uzzi said he was especially drawn to the business' adherence to its core values: admire people; offer WOW customer experience; find a better way; and be passionate about making a difference.

"I thought their core values and brand were very infectious," Uzzi said.

Unlike most home health care businesses, whose care models are based on performing impersonal tasks, Nurse Next Door seeks to treat both body and soul.

Nurse Next Door caregivers ask every new client, "What did you love to do that you no longer can?" Then they do everything possible to help the client do it again, whether it's swimming, walking in the park or piloting airplanes. Most of its clients are elderly, but Nurse Next Door also serves special-needs and disabled clients of all ages.

"Nurse Next Door presents a great opportunity for American entrepreneurs to meet a huge market need and make a real difference in their communities," DeHart said.
