The number of people 65 years of age and older worldwide will double by 2050 and these people want to remain independent in the comfort of their own homes. BrightStar Care is primed to fill the international demand for expert, high-quality in-home care. The home care franchise is already seeing success in China, Mexico, Australia, and within the Middle East and is planning expansion into Canada and the United Kingdom via Area Developer or Master Franchisees.
“We are off to a great start with our international expansion endeavors,” said Shelly Sun, CEO and co-founder of BrightStar Care. “Our goal is to bring BrightStar Care into every country that has a high demand for our services, and with these recent efforts, we are well on our way. Our brand is committed to providing A Higher Standard of Home Care for families, and we have the proven model with a solid infrastructure to help our international franchisees deliver high-quality care in their communities all over the globe.”
BrightStar Care is unique among private duty home care providers in its commitment and ability to deliver the highest quality of care. Each franchise location employs a Registered Nurse Director of Nursing who creates unique, personalized plans of care for each client and oversees professional care teams of well-qualified, experienced caregivers who deliver expert, compassionate and personal care. Many BrightStar Care locations also provide the full continuum of care, including non-medical and medical services, which means BrightStar Care can continue to provide trusted service to clients as their healthcare needs advance from companionship to more skilled care over time. In addition to the active role of the Registered Nurse Director of Nursing, BrightStar Care locations are required to obtain and maintain Joint Commission Accreditation. The Joint Commission is an internationally recognized healthcare-quality organization with rigorous standards.
Spearheading the international growth plan is franchise development veteran Anthony Padulo, who has successfully expanded brands such as Dunkin’ Brands, BP Oil and Aamco into global markets. As Executive Vice President of Domestic and International Development for BrightStar Care, Padulo is focusing efforts on securing deals with Area Developers to own and operate multiple locations at a time, or Master Franchisees, who can sub-franchise after opening two to five of their own locations.
“World aging is not slowing down anytime soon – quite the opposite, in fact – and every country across the globe could benefit from the services that BrightStar Care provides,” Padulo said. “The ideal candidate for this business opportunity is someone who recognizes that demand, has the team and infrastructure in place to bring the brand in their region, and is committed to making a true difference.”
