Since the pandemic struck, it’s never been more important to ensure the proper care of vulnerable seniors, and Right at Home has decades of experience and a comprehensive suite of services to help elders age gracefully and peacefully at home.
Because Right at Home has a trusted service in a growing space, its franchise locations have moved quickly. With 10,000 U.S. citizens turning 65 every day and a “silver tsunami” of aging baby boomers expected to need care over the next decades, savvy investors have already staked out their territory. Between 2014 and 2019, in-home senior care franchises grew at an average rate of 8%, much of that driven by Right at Home’s solid growth.
What Sets Right at Home Apart
Right at Home, unlike any other senior in-home care franchisor, was founded by a hospital administrator, Allen Hager, who understood the impact proper, compassionate in-home care has on the quality and longevity of one’s life.
Right at Home was the first national brands to create a package of services called RightTransitions that assists hospitals and health care providers in reducing preventable hospital readmissions and their associated costs. During a pilot study of the program, Right at Home reduced hospital readmissions for seniors by 65% with a 99% customer satisfaction rate. In just three years, Right at Home saved the hospital $1,000,000 from the pilot program.
Right at Home's Investment
The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Right a Home franchise ranges from $82,000 to $150,800. This includes an Initial Franchise Fee in the amount of $49,500 that must be paid to the franchisor.

Why a Caregiving Franchise?
There are five strong reasons to invest in a caregiving franchise. First, the U.S.’s aging population will naturally come to demand care over the coming decade. Right at Home will allow these seniors to age at home and live independently in the comfort of their own home. Secondly, caring for seniors in-home costs less than traditional options. Third, as an essential business, Right at Home has proven recession and pandemic-related resilience. Not only did the brand not lose business, but it also took on additional clients throughout the challenges of 2020. Fourth, the franchise offers best-in-class support for franchisees. Regular conferences, hands-on training, town halls and round-the-clock business support ensure that franchisees who seek help will always be able to find it with Right at Home. Finally, Right at Home franchisees go to bed at night with a deep feeling of satisfaction in their work as they improve the lives of the elderly, one of the most valuable and ever-dwindling human resources on the planet.
Right at Home offers entrepreneurs and caregivers fulfillment in their jobs and the opportunity to have their successes significantly help seniors in their community. Right at Home is eager to connect with passionate and service-oriented entrepreneurs who love what they do and who often find caring for the elderly as fulfilling as spending time with their own loved ones.
For entrepreneurs who do seek that level of fulfillment in their careers, Right at Home offers a way to make that journey incredibly financially rewarding. By 2050, the U.N. estimates the world will have two billion people over 60 years old. On average, adult children live 282 miles from their aging parents. For women, the problem is especially challenging and isolating as nearly half of women above 75 live alone with no one to assist them.
Right at Home empowers people who care about seniors to make a difference in an industry that desperately needs them.
Why Franchisees Love the Brand
Right at Home has hundreds of satisfied franchisees because it listens to its owners and operators and provides them the tools to have fulfilling, profitable businesses. For Rosaleen Doherty, a franchisee in Massachusetts, the brand’s leadership inspires her.
“One of the things we loved about Right at Home is that founder and chairman Allen Hager had a full-blown background in this. He had been a hospital administrator. He really understood how the care worked. That was really what was important for us. So, in the end, it was truly the upper management of the franchise. I saw their willingness to work with the franchisees,” she said.
After 20 years in the corporate health care field, Kenneth Helmuth, a multi-unit franchisee with the brand, was moved by the opportunity to make a real impact in seniors’ lives while collaborating with a skilled team.
“I’ve personally seen the emotional and physical toll on relatives and friends that years of caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease, cancer or permanent disabilities can take,” said Helmuth. “A passion for serving clients, their families and caregivers, as well as the community, led me to pursue Right at Home business ownership in Durham and Chapel Hill. After doing my due diligence, seeing the business model and meeting the incredible leadership team, I knew Right at Home was the right choice for me.”
