OMAHA, NE - (Marketwired - Feb 13, 2014) - As baby boomers begin to enter their elder years, the demand for senior care services continues to expand. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare support is one of the fastest-growing industries in the nation, with 34.5 percent growth increase predicted by 2020. Right at Home, a leading in-home senior care franchise with more than 350 locations in 44 states nationwide and a presence in six countries globally, continues to meet and exceed the growing demand for quality services. The Omaha-based brand recently demonstrated its leadership in the industry by completing its 100th training class, reaching a major milestone for its growing system.
"The milestone of having trained 100 classes of new franchise owners is indicative of serious growth for Right at Home," said Eric Little, senior vice president of franchise development for Right at Home. "More importantly, we've been able to help more than 75,000 families by delivering on our mission of improving the quality of life for those we serve."
The 100th training class included nine individuals who will be opening Right at Home care offices in their local communities across the U.S., as well as a team of franchisees who will be introducing the brand to Australia. Reaching this landmark number and welcoming new franchisees to the system will allow the brand to kick off 2014 with continued enthusiasm following two consecutive record years in franchise sales for the brand. As Right at Home approaches its 20th anniversary, the company is looking to continue building momentum and sustaining development, both domestically and internationally.
Little says that the company can attribute their solid, steady growth to a well-developed network of franchisees who are ready and willing to serve a rapidly aging population around the world -- a demographic that will increasingly require and desire in-home care in the years to come.
"In the U.S. alone, 13.7 percent of the nation's 316 million people are age 65 and older," said Allen Hager, chief executive officer. "Right at Home has experienced significant growth even without the baby boomer demographic, so we know the potential for growing our concept is tremendous. Therefore, our aim becomes finding business-minded franchisees who have a passion for caring for this growing population."
Right at Home, Inc. offices are independently owned and operated and directly employ and supervise all caregiving staff, each of whom is thoroughly screened and trained prior to entering a client's home. The result is an industry-leading service that offers a full continuum of personalized care to individuals in need.
The Right at Home franchise opportunity is designed for professionals who care for others and their communities as much as their investments. Using Right at Home's proprietary marketing systems, franchisees have built significant businesses that have grown, even in challenging economic conditions.
"It's an incredibly exciting time to be involved with the senior care segment," Little said. "We're looking forward to the next 100 training classes and helping even more families in the years to come."
Founded in 1995, Right at Home offers in-home companionship and personal care and assistance to seniors and disabled adults who want to continue to live independently. Local Right at Home offices are independently owned and operated and directly employ and supervise all caregiving staff, each of whom is thoroughly screened, trained, and bonded/insured prior to entering a client's home.
