Right at Home has passed an international milestone and opened its 500th office.
The company, which first opened in the US in 1995, has established itself as one of the fastest-growing leaders in the home care sector, opening up 289 offices around the world since 2012.
“Right at Home’s local owners are making it possible for people across the world to age with dignity within the comfortable surroundings of their own home,” said Brian Petranick, CEO and president of Right at Home Inc.
Right at Home now operates in 45 states of the U.S. and seven other countries throughout the world. The UK, where there will soon be 35 trading offices, is the most established arm of the business outside America.
The average number of people turning 65 each day currently hovers around 10,000, meaning that the amount of caregivers needed to care for this increasing demographic continues to increase worldwide.
“Finding care for the elderly continues to be an increasing issue across the globe, which is why Right at Home has continued to see growth internationally, as well as in the United States,” said Blake Martin, chief operating officer of Right at Home International. “With 63 operating offices outside of the United States, we are proud to be able to take our proven systems into different cultures to help the aging populations in Europe, Australia, Asia and The Americas.”
Husband-and-wife team John and Cendra Flessner are owners of the 500th territory in Kansas City.
“My father passed away six years ago from Alzheimer’s, which was the primary reason that I decided to become a Right at Home franchisee,” said John. “For 17 years, I did contract and legal work and it was time for a change. I’m able to be part of the community now, and provide a service that positively influences people rather than sit behind a desk reading contracts.”
