Some senior care franchisees have commented on what a challenge it is for you to stay abreast of changes in state licensing for senior care. For them it can be frustrating and time consuming because 28 states currently have some form of licensing or registration for senior care businesses.
With Right at Home you’ll never have to worry. They can keep you and your clients updated on these requirements because Right at Home has a full-time specialist dedicated to watching over clinical and licensing issues for their franchisees. Her name is Pat Stemmermann; she’s an RN, and she’s been with Right at Home for 9 years. Pat also has run the flagship Right at Home office in Omaha, so she is exceptionally qualified to their franchisees.
What makes Right at Home the expert in senior care licensing?
- The fact that they have someone on staff that does this full time is a real differentiation – many senior care companies leave franchisees on their own for this important task.
- They proactively monitor legislative initiatives within the various states to stay abreast of changes to current legislation, and they stay on top of the ones who are considering legislation to enact new licensing requirements.
- Most of the “licensing” states require that the franchisee submit a procedures manual to the state for approval. This manual in many cases contains hundreds of pages of content, which would require countless hours to create from scratch. With operations in 41 states, Right at Home already has a manual that has been approved in most licensing states.
- As of today, they have helped over 150 franchisees get their licenses and registrations.
Currently the following states have some form of licensing and/or registration:
Minnesota Illinois Nevada Rhode Island
Indiana New Hampshire Tennessee Pennsylvania
Colorado Kentucky New Jersey Texas
Connecticut Louisiana New York Utah
Delaware Maine North Carolina Virginia
Florida Maryland Oklahoma Washington
Georgia Massachusetts Oregon Washington DC
