About Nurse Next Door

Did you know every single day in North America, 10,000 people turn 65 years old

According to AARP, 90% of all seniors say that they want to age at home. As the population continues to age, more people are desiring options.

Nurse Next Door offers senior care services ranging from simple companionship care and light housekeeping to skilled nursing services such as medication management, dementia care, live-in, and end-of-life care. The company was founded in 2001 by John DeHart and Ken Sim, who were inspired by their own struggles in finding home care for loved ones. We've done exceptionally well in Canada and the United States, and people are taking notice. It's why we have over 200 franchises across North America and a master franchise in Australia.

Why a Nurse Next Door Home Care Franchise?

Bold Brand: Senior care often has the stereotypical image of being somber and melancholic. Nurse Next Door is disrupting the home care industry with our bold, fun and pink brand— we celebrate aging!

Happier Aging philosophy: With the abundance of home care companies, we knew that we needed to do something different to truly stand out. Based on calls we received from clients, we developed our trademarked Happier Aging philosophy — a truly unique experience designed to get seniors back to doing what they love. We believe that care goes beyond tasks and our mission to bring seniors happiness is being noticed.

Check out Happier Aging in action:

24/7 Call Center: We are the first and only home care franchise brand that has developed a 24/7 centralized call center that we call: Care Services Center. The purpose is to help alleviate duties such as scheduling and incoming calls from prospective clients so our partners can focus on building their business. We believe everyone deserves work-life balance and having our Care Services Center open 24/7, 365 days a year is just an example of how we go above and beyond to support our Franchise Partners!

We believe seniors can stay at home. We believe in Happier Aging. We believe in making lives better. Does this resonate with you?


“Building a successful quality business is by far the most satisfying thing to me. To see income come in because of something you’re doing that also benefits the community is powerful. Seeing our caregivers and Care Designers do what they love to do and giving people the opportunity to stay at home is pretty awesome.”

Tiffany Rubin, Nurse Next Door Delaware

“Going at it alone, there’s a lot more hurdles. With a Nurse Next Door franchise, you have support and the benefit from HeartQuarters and Corporate office. You also have the camaraderie and learnings from other franchisees. I think that’s really important for the community to have home care with consistent back-up and support.”
