Daryl and Karen Sahli bought the Master Franchise rights for Right at Home Australia in December 2013 and they share a commitment and dedication to providing excellent care for older Australians, people with disabilities and persons recovering from a hospital stay.

They understand that just a little bit of care goes a very long way.

Franchise Owner Benefits
Unlike many franchise opportunities, home care offers benefits well beyond the possibility of monetary growth. This isn’t just an investment in a business; it’s also an investment in your community and your personal fulfilment.
You provide a better quality of life
When you leave your office at the end of the day, you haven’t just made a dollar; you’ve made someone’s day. Home Care is a necessary service that helps an aging population remain independent in comfortable surroundings. Your care – and the resulting independence – is often the difference between someone feeling happiness rather than helplessness.
You provide stability and affordability.
Family relationships are fragile. When something changes, it can often upset the balance of the entire unit, emotionally and financially. Your presence and services can make a difficult situation easier for the entire family at an affordable cost.
You provide fulfilling employment.
Most franchises create jobs; at Right at Home you create meaningful jobs. You’re not just helping your employees put food on the table; you’re providing a sense of accomplishment to those who are able to enrich the lives of others. With Right at Home’s proven track record, you’re also putting money into your community so that it can grow and thrive.
Training and Support
The abiding rule for Right at Home Australia is that the franchise support must be effective. In other words, it is the perception that support is available and effective but also a practical identification that this is, in fact, the case.
Franchisee and franchisor satisfaction with the quality and quantity of support, along with both network-wide and individual-unit financial success is the definition of “Effective”.
Right at Home operates state-of-the-art enterprise management systems that provide a high level of efficiency and cost savings.
Right at Home offer an initial two-week training program, one week in Omaha Nebraska and second week in Brisbane Australia. On-going start-up training using our unique 120-point, 18 month, RightStart program drives the success of our new owners.
Like all business ventures, a Right at Home franchise requires an investment in time as well as a financial investment.
Our Initial Franchise Fee is $120,000 which includes training, systems and procedures, and the rollout of the RightStart program.
We estimate that our new owners would need an additional $70,000 in setup costs including the recruitment of care management staff.
Working capital will be required during the early stages of the business and advice should be sort from your accountant or business adviser as to the amount needed.
Territories & Locations
Right at Home offers large exclusive territories that have in excess of 35,000 persons over 65 with a high proportion of self-funded retirees.
As Right at Home offers post-hospital stay care, total population is also an important criteria.
As Right at Home is launching its franchise business territories are available throughout Australia.
There’s no magic formula or personality test that will tell you, without question, whether or not you should be in the home care business. There’s also no perfect age, gender or marital status that will guarantee success. But there are some common themes. Once you complete your research, including talking with several of our existing franchise owners, you’ll have a much better idea of whether or not this business is a good fit for you.
Experience in our industry is not a prerequisite. We would like to train our franchise owners in all aspects of our business and how we do things.
Successful Right at Home Franchisees are highly motivated and have a strong desire and passion to be successful in a home care business. For some, it’s a passion for making a difference in the lives of families in their local community. For others, it’s a passion for building a successful business and for creating independence for their family through business ownership.
Whatever your motivation is, in order to be successful, you must have a passion together with:
– Personal experience in running your own business or a senior management role managing others
– Confidence and enthusiasm for selling home care
– The ability to motivate others
– A quick learner and be able to pass skills and knowledge on to staff
