Homewatch CareGivers - Franchise

Make A Difference In Your Community & Build Your Own Business 

If your dream career involves serving your community and caring for others, it’s time to consider joining the rewarding and profitable home care industry. 

Right now, the home care industry is flourishing — and Homewatch CareGivers has perfect the business model. Now more than ever, people are choosing to stay at home as they age, which has created a high demand for high-quality home care services. As American seniors continue to live longer, the industry will only continue to grow. There’s never been a better, more urgent time to enter the home care space and provide our seniors with the dignified independence they deserve.

Our Homewatch CareGivers franchisees offer a full range of home care services, from companion care to complex personal care. Our unique approach to care is designed to provide meaningful companionship as well as practical and concrete aid that our clients require in their daily lives. Our caregiving services are not just limited to senior care, but also include after-hospital care, after-surgery care, child care, postpartum care, and more. 

Our franchisees manage the strategic direction of their business and are responsible for creating a positive, client-centric culture. We provide them with world-class support, including online training tools with 2000+ courses, employee recruitment tools, a unique client acquisition model, and much, much more. 

History of Homewatch CareGivers

In 1980, Homewatch CareGivers® was founded by Paul Sauer on the principle of delivering high-quality and compassionate care to people who needed home care services. Homewatch CareGivers provided senior care services in the Denver Metro area through the late 1990s. Eventually, they began franchising upon realizing there was a greater need for quality home care services throughout the country. For nearly four decades, the Sauer family ran the company and continued to expand its national and international footprint.

Today, the original vision of being the premier provider of home care services continues under the ownership of parent company Authority Brands. Under Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Tucker, Homewatch CareGivers endeavors to strengthen its position within the continuum of care by preserving dignity, independence, and safety for clients.
