Nurse Next Door

Build a home care business with heart

Known for their bold pink brand and bright pink cars, Nurse Next Door is a home care business that stands out amongst other home care companies. With the core purpose of Making Lives Better®, Nurse Next Door is passionate about making a difference and enriching the lives of the people they care for. Encouraging a positive outlook through their philosophy of care that embraces Happier Ageing® and possibility, Nurse Next Door empowers older Australians and people living with a disability, to remain independent in their own home, on their own terms and keep living life to the fullest.

A thought leader in the home care industry, Nurse Next Door emphatically rejects the notion that people need to surrender their enjoyment of life because they need care. Instead Nurse Next Door Franchise Partners seek out the possibilities for their clients, building care plans on the foundation of each individual’s needs, desires and personality, arranging each care plan around the person instead of trying to plug the person into the package.

Disrupting Home Care Since 2001

Launched in 2001, Nurse Next Door founders John DeHart and Ken Sim set out to create a business that would do things differently, and better, disrupting a market that was, and often still is, task-based and sterile. With their commitment to Happier Ageing® and Making Lives Better® Nurse Next Door quickly gained an exceptional reputation in Canada and began franchising in 2007, now boasting over 200 locations across Canada and the USA.

In 2018, Nurse Next Door awarded Melbourne locals Amber Biesse and Matt Fitton the Australian Master Franchise licence. Having built and run several successful businesses, Nurse Next Door’s core purpose of Making Lives Better® resonated deeply with the couple, who also recognised the enormous potential of a home care brand that combined this core purpose and its associated values with world-class processes and operational excellence, honed over years of best practice.

Under Matt and Amber’s leadership, the corporately owned Melbourne location has quickly replicated the success of the brand in North America, with an increasing number of raving fans.

Key Benefits

Support and Systems

Nurse Next Door offers Franchise Partners a 24/7 Care Services Platform – a centralised scheduling and client support platform operating 365 days per year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Designed to alleviate the administration duties of the Franchise Partner, the care services platform handles all calls, inquiries and client visits allowing the Franchise Partner to focus on building their business.

High-growth market

Established in the aged care and disability support sectors, Nurse Next Door is uniquely positioned for long-term, year-over-year growth that’s unparalleled in the franchise industry. With forecasts projecting one in five Australians will be aged over 65 in the next 20 years and the NDIS giving people living with disabilities more choice and control over when, where and how they get the support they need, the home care market offers an unparalleled opportunity in the franchise industry.

Successful business model

The Nurse Next Door franchise model is a growing success. After starting in Canada, the franchise expanded to the USA and there are over 200 franchises across North America. Nurse Next Door Australia through its corporately owned Melbourne location is quickly matching the incredible success the system has proven to be in Canada and the USA, one of the toughest markets in the world.
