Nurse Next Door


Nurse Next Door is a home health care franchise that provides in-home care for clients, most of them seniors, who need everything from companionship to end-of-life care. It’s a company that occupies a rapidly growing market niche positioned to meet one of the biggest sociological developments of the last century: the “silver tsunami” of an exploding elderly population as the Baby Boomers reach retirement age.

Nurse Next Door is different because we’re about caring, not just health care. Other home health care companies offer specific services and construct their care plans around them; in other words, they’re task-oriented and care for clients based on how well their needs match the available services. A Nurse Next Door home healthcare franchise flips that dynamic on its head. We start with the client. What does the client need?

Support and Training Notes:

Our training starts with our eight-week Countdown To Launch program, which covers everything from insurance to wrapping the Nurse Next Door car to reviewing John’s insights to familiarizing yourself with our online systems. It’s a lot of information, but you’ll need it to make it through training week. For the critical first six to eight months, an assigned coach will guide you through the inevitable rough spots. Our coaches are part counselor, part cheerleader, part business consultant — and the entire home office team is available for as long or as often as you need us.

Get Started!
