Frequently Asked Questions About the Right at Home Franchise Opportunity
One of our biggest differentiators is our proprietary care delivery system, RightCare—the experience that our franchisees create for clients, caregivers, and office staff. We always say RightCare is about “the Right People doing the Right Things the Right Way for the Right Reason.” That motto allows us to live our mission in a way that provides an individualized experience for every client. The services our caregivers provide may be the same as other home care companies, but it is our support, relationships, and staff that really stand out and make a difference.
