Entry into the European market signifies a major milestone for this global home care brand.

Nurse Next Door England


VANCOUVER, CANADA (June 7, 2023) 

Nurse Next Door, North America’s rapidly expanding home care franchise system, is proud to announce its entry into Europe, beginning with the vibrant nation of England. This strategic growth further solidifies our ongoing commitment to redefine senior care and uphold our ‘Happier Aging™’ philosophy globally by awarding our master franchise rights for England to entrepreneurs Prash and Karen Patel.

Since 2014, Prash and Karen have been successfully operating their own home care business in Surrey, England. They are now preparing to seamlessly transition to the Nurse Next Door brand and systems, paving the way for the launch of national franchising endeavors. 

Nurse Next Door’s VP of Global Franchise Development, Arif Abdulla, praises the Patels, saying, “They bring a wealth of healthcare and home care experience and, more importantly, a genuine connection to Nurse Next Door’s purpose and core values. This is the combination we were looking for in a partner to bring our brand to England.”

Nurse Next Door has a successful establishment of over 300 franchises across Canada, the US, and Australia; we’ve been honored as a Top Global Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine. This expansion into England represents the next phase in our quest to make lives better worldwide, a testament to the transformative impact of our ‘Happier Aging™’ approach.

Cathy Thorpe, President & CEO of Nurse Next Door, enthusiastically remarks, “We are incredibly excited to bring our unique concept of Happier Aging™ to England with Prash and Karen. We firmly believe that seniors can age happily at home and our philosophy ensures care goes beyond just clinical tasks and allows for individuals to get back to doing the things they love.”

Sharing his thoughts on the partnership, Prash Patel states, “Karen and I are thrilled to embark on this new chapter. We have always aspired to make a national impact, and partnering with Nurse Next Door became the clear path to achieving that goal. The company’s vibrant brand, robust operational systems, and successful track record in other countries position us exceptionally well for expansion throughout England.”

At Nurse Next Door, we offer an extensive suite of medical and non-medical home care services, always aimed at maintaining seniors’ happiness and health in their own homes. As we venture into England, we carry this commitment with us, aiming to imbue our approach in every interaction.
