Who We Are
In 1995, former hospital administrator Allen Hager founded Right at Home in Omaha, Nebraska. As one of the pioneers of the home care franchise industry, Right at Home provides care for people who don't need an institutional setting, but still need some assistance to live at home.
While in the hospital environment, Allen watched many patients – especially seniors – leave the facility and return home, but not necessarily return to health. Once home, many of his former patients were unable to care for themselves. Allen knew that with a little help, most of these people could lead healthy, happy lives in their own homes. But he also knew that there were very few companies that offered this kind of help.
Before he considered franchising, however, he talked to dozens of families to understand the different kinds of challenges they faced and what kind of care would help. He then became a Certified Nursing Assistant so he could experience the needs of people who were still living in their home but who needed some professional assistance.
Five years after founding the company, Allen began branching into other regions of the country by carefully selecting home care franchise owners who shared his passion for caring for those in their community. Right at Home now has more than 300 locations that serve tens of thousands of clients in the United States, Canada, The United Kingdom, Brazil, China and Ireland.
Why do we do what we do?
First and foremost, Right at Home exists to serve our clients and their needs through our in-home care franchise network. Whenever doubt exists in a situation, we consider this our guiding priority. How we treat one another dramatically affects how we treat our clients. Every Right at Home associate deserves and receives respect, consideration and support.
The mission of Right at Home is to improve the quality of life for those we serve. If you want to experience fulfillment and significance, see an investment grow, and make a positive impact on your community and its families, then Right at Home could be the home care franchise opportunity for you.
It was important to me to affiliate myself with a brand that had already achieved strong brand recognition and credibility. I was interested in the franchising model, and Right at Home had a good one. I wanted to be local to Memphis and close to home, and I was eager to connect with a brand that had unlimited growth possibilities.
