Founded in 2001 in Vancouver, B.C., Nurse Next Door Home Care Services is a global leader in-home care. With 200+ locations across Canada, USA and Australia, we are at the forefront of disrupting the homecare industry with our bold brand and “Happier Ageing” philosophy.
When Nurse Next Door started, we believed in changing the perceptions of ageing from the beginning. Our goal is to satisfy clients’ individual emotional and psychological needs as well as the physical and medical ones. Instead of feeling sad or helpless, we knew that ageing was something worth celebrating. The evolution of this vision combined with learnings from our clients led to the concept of ‘Happier Ageing’ which was created to identify and define engagement activities that would bring happiness — even if it was something small or simple.
Beyond providing the highest quality of care for seniors, the company improves the quality of life for their clients and delivers a unique #HappierAging experience to get clients back to doing the things they love to do.
What services do we provide?
Nurse Next Door has a more holistic, flexible approach to homecare. We assess clients’ needs and tailor services around the individual. We serve some younger people with disabilities or developmental disorders and those who need post-operative care, but seniors make up the bulk of our clientele.
We offer a variety of homecare services to support our clients’ health and independence:
- Meal preparation
- Caregiver relief / respite
- Transport / accompaniment

Why the home care industry
The statistics speak for themselves. Almost 90% of all seniors say that they want to age at home. There are now 11.8 million people aged 65 or over in the UK. That number is projected to rise by over 40 percent in the next 20 years! By 2025, 1 in 5 people in the UK will be aged 65+. In 2045, 25% of the population will be over the age of 65!
As the population continues to age, more people are desiring options. Instead of seniors moving into an assisted living facility once they are no longer independent, they and their family members want choices. As a result, many homecare companies have emerged to provide quality care so seniors can receive the help they need at a place they want to be — their homes.
This franchise opportunity provides a financial opportunity you can be proud of. You’re helping seniors and their loved ones find the care they need or are unaware about it. The calls, letters and notes you’ll receive from those you’ve impacted are unparalleled to any other feeling you’ll experience in another industry.
