Vancouver, Canada, August 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- With Saskatchewan seniors currently accounting for more than 15% of the provincial population, the needs of this group are becoming increasingly important. With the demographics demanding it, Vancouver-based Nurse Next Door Home Healthcare Services, Canada’s fastest growing home care franchise system, has kicked off its Saskatchewan expansion with the launch of a locally owned and operated franchise in Saskatoon.
With nearly 28 locations already in operation throughout BC, Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia, Nurse Next Door is rapidly expanding across the country. The Saskatoon franchise will serve as a starting point for further expansion into Saskatchewan as well as Manitoba increasing Nurse Next Door’s national footprint.
Having interviewed hundreds of prospective candidates from across Canada, local Saskatoon couple Rob and Heather Van Norman were selected to bring the company’s award winning home care services to the growing market.
“The demographics in Saskatchewan are really screaming for our concept,” says Nurse Next Door co-founder John DeHart. “The priority for us was really finding the right partners to launch with in Saskatoon. With Rob and Heather’s strong roots in the community coupled with their commitment to making lives better, we’re confident we’ve found the right couple to drive the Nurse Next Door brand.”
The newest Nurse Next Door franchise will address the care needs of Saskatoon seniors by providing a viable alternative to long-term care facilities. With current nursing home proving to be both costly and inefficient, the vital services Nurse Next Door provides allow today’s seniors to live comfortably at home.
“We are excited to bring home care services to our local community in Saskatoon,” says Rob. “We really want to ensure that local seniors and their families receive the care, attention and peace of mind they deserve.”
All of Nurse Next Door’s franchise locations provide a full spectrum of in-home senior care services ranging from a few hours of companionship per week to 24-hour, round-the-clock nursing care. These services help individuals with a variety of care needs live happy, healthy lives at home.
