Building a Legacy
Right at Home was founded by Allen Hager who worked in healthcare as a hospital administrator for many years. While in the hospital environment, he watched many of his patients – especially seniors – leave the facility and return home, but not necessarily return to health. Once home, a multitude of his former patients were unable to care for themselves. Allen knew that with a little help, most of these individuals could lead healthy and happy lives in their own homes; but he also knew that there were very few companies that offered this kind of help.
Allen didn't just right jump in and start a franchising company, however. First, he talked to dozens of families to understand the different kinds of challenges they faced and what kind of care would help. Then he became a certified nursing assistant so he could experience the needs of people who were still living in their home but who needed some professional assistance. In 1995, Allen started Right at Home in Omaha, Nebraska. Five years later, he started branching into other regions of the country by carefully selecting franchisees who shared his passion for caring for those in their community.
