Homewatch CareGivers


It is well-known that a large percentage of the U.S. population is aging; Baby Boomers began turning 65 in 2011, and the U.S. Census bureau projects that almost 20% of the population will be over the age of 65 by 2030. Home health care will play a pivotal role in the future, helping people curtail medical costs and live life where they want to – in the comfort of their own homes.

Homewatch CareGivers Franchisees provide much-needed services, while benefiting from a market with expected long term growth. In fact, the fastest-growing franchise category is Senior Services, according to Entrepreneur Magazine. And we rank consistently in the Franchise Business Review Top 50 for Franchisee Satisfaction and a Top 10 Senior Care Franchise.

Homewatch CareGivers provides the home care and personal assistance that individuals who are aging, disabled, and rehabilitating need to remain in their homes. Since its founding in 1980, the company has expanded to include over 220 franchised locations in six countries – while remaining steadfast to its heritage of home care.

Through training and ongoing support, each franchisee is armed with the tools and resources needed to build a successful home care business. Our professionally-developed and accredited online University equips each caregiver to deliver the exceptional care that provides peace of mind to clients and their loved ones. Each location provides specialty care to those living with chronic illnesses, which helps clients to age in place. In addition, the company offers the Pathways to Memory™ approach, which provides care for those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Homewatch CareGivers is looking for compassionate, goal-oriented people with a desire to help others and make a difference in their communities. Strong management and leadership skills are preferred, but medical and/or home care experience is not required.
