ACT is the Perfect Market for a Home Care Franchise Business

ACT, canberra, capital, Australian, parliament, franchise business

While Nurse Next Door franchises all across Australia are in high demand, the ACT and Canberra metropolitan area is particularly attractive for those looking to build a business in the home care market . There are nearly 50,000 people over the age of 65 in the ACT – 45,000 of them in Canberra – roughly 20 percent out of a population of nearly 220,000 people, according to the 2016 Census. The needs of this group are creating an excellent business opportunity for entrepreneurs to build equity — fast.

Nurse Next Door is uniquely positioned to fill the gaps in the home care market in the ACT, with the population projected to grow at a faster rate than the country as a whole.

We’re Not Your Ordinary Home Care Franchise Brand

At Nurse Next Door, we truly believe that it’s about caring, not just health care. It’s a mentality that is embraced at every level of the organisation, from our Founders, to our Franchise Partners, to our Caregivers.

Our bold, pink brand is just what the doctor (or nurse) ordered.

Nurse Next Door’s brand, backed by its philosophy of care centred around Happier Ageing and our core purpose of Making Lives Better, Nurse Next Door is certainly attracting notice and helping our franchise partners stand out in the home care space.

Our Care Services Platform: A Game-Changer in Home Care

It’s no secret: The home care space presents an outstanding business opportunity. But why do so few major providers exist in the market? Because it’s a demanding business. Home care franchise owners have to be on call 24/7/365, answering their phones, managing client schedules, fielding and working around caregiver sick calls and all the other headaches that come with the business.

That’s where the Care Services Platform comes in. Nurse Next Door runs a centralised call centre with Care Services specialists, who handle such time- and energy-sapping duties as around-the-clock scheduling, inbound sales, employee management and business-critical analytics so our franchise partners can focus on building their businesses.

A Proven Home Care Franchise System

With more than 60 locations throughout North America, Nurse Next Door gives entrepreneurs an opportunity to build a proven business with heart. We are Canada’s leading private-duty provider, and we’re generating huge buzz with our rapid expansion across the United States. Recently, CNBC identified Nurse Next Door as one of the nation’s most promising franchise opportunities, and Fox Business has interviewed our co-founder and CEO, John DeHart, on the immense and growing home care market.

In late 2018, Australia became Nurse Next Door’s first global partner when Nurse Next Door commenced business in Melbourne. At the rate at which Melbourne has been able to penetrate the market and build a growing number of raving fans, the success of the brand in North America is being quickly replicated in Australia and all points toward a similar growth trajectory.
