Can this be a home-based business?
No, you will lease a small office space that will serve as your main office for managing the business and recruitment of caregivers.

No, this is an owner-operator model. As the business grows, you may hire an operations manager.
What would a typical day look like as a franchise owner?
The answer to this depends upon how long your business has been open, how many customers you have, and several other factors. For a new owner, most of your time will be spent on marketing, sales, recruitment, and meeting with families. Being active and visible in the community is also important at any stage, so you should plan on spending a lot of time establishing and growing your brand locally as an expert in senior care by working with local aging and civic organizations.
Will I have a territory?
Your Designated Area (see FDD for details) will consist of approximately 15,000 – 30,000 people over the age of 65. Click here to see if your preferred territory is available.
How does the business generate revenue?
Right at Home offices generate revenue by matching qualified caregivers with families who need help caring for an aging loved one. Caregivers are typically billed to the family on an hourly basis, and execute a care plan that is customized for each client based on their need.
