Why Geelong is a Great Market for a Nurse Next Door Home Care Franchise

While Nurse Next Door franchises across Australia are in high demand, the Geelong home care market is particularly attractive. The older population in Geelong is nearly 45,000, representing around 20 percent of the population, and growing. Nearly 11 percent of Geelong households are older couples without children whilst a further 11 percent of households in the Greater Geelong region are older people living alone. 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 existing market gaps for home care in the Disability and Aged care sectors in the Geelong region.

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.

Backed by our philosophy of care centred around Happier Ageing and 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, 24/7 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 200 locations throughout North America, Nurse Next Door gives entrepreneurs an opportunity to build a proven business with heart. Nurse Next Door is Canada’s leading private home care provider, and is generating huge buzz. 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.
