Our franchise owners come from different backgrounds, but share a passion for helping others
Touching Hearts at Home is a unique brand. What makes us unique is the type of people we attract as franchise owners. We carefully select our franchise owners to join our supportive culture, based upon service, integrity, and compassion. Despite their different backgrounds and gifts, all our franchise owners share a commonality: a passion for other-oriented service and a commitment to make people’s lives better.
“Touching Hearts is an absolutely wonderful opportunity, both emotionally and financially, for people who are driven and have that entrepreneurial spirit,” founder Renae Peterson says. “It’s extremely rewarding to help someone. To know that you made a difference in someone’s life and changed it for the better.”
Our franchise owners do not need a medical background, just a shared passion for helping others and a drive to grow their business.
“The ideal Touching Hearts at Home franchisee is somebody wanting to make a difference. Do you need a health care background? Not at all. You just want to provide home care services for our vulnerable populations for the right reasons, and at the same time you want to make a living, and there’s nothing wrong with putting those things together,” says Renae. “We look for people with a passion for helping others and integrity for doing the right thing, as well as the drive to build and grow their business. The bigger we get, the more we can help others in the community.”

“Being part of an organization that has an amazing culture, a knowledgeable corporate team, and the support of owners nationwide certainly is a difference-maker when you consider all that comes with running a home care business. Almost three years later, I know we made the right choice to join the Touching Hearts at Home family.
With a growing population of seniors and the talented team we’ve built to support our efforts, we were able to grow our business exponentially in a short period of time. We feel great about the future of our office and industry as a whole. It is such an honor to have the opportunity to provide quality care to our growing senior community.”
Allan Hunt, Owner/Administrator
Touching Hearts at Home – North Houston
“Touching Hearts at Home has provided a wonderful opportunity for me to serve people in my community in a very meaningful, personal way. The support I have received from the home office in starting and growing this business has been outstanding. We have exceeded all our financial projections, well beyond our expectations! I love coming to work every day knowing we are helping our clients with the best caregivers who are so committed to being excellent! I am so thankful to have found a business so rewarding. My only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner!”
Touching Hearts at Home – Yardley, Pennsylvania
“I tell people I’ve been thanked more in the past 3 years than I had been in the past 30 years as a salesman in the corporate world. The opportunity and privilege of being a Touching Hearts at Home agency owner has proven to be the best experience of my professional career. I’m overwhelmed by the kindness, compassion, and professionalism of our care team. We have met so many wonderful and selfless people in this industry. It’s so rewarding to be able to make a difference in people’s lives. Jeff and I were friends for years before becoming business partners, and our friendship has grown even stronger as we continue on this journey together.”

A personal experience leads many to choose a career with Touching Hearts at Home
Many of our franchisees come to us by way of a personal experience with an aging loved one. Whether their parent or grandparent needed a little extra help with basic chores and companionship for a few hours a week, or required almost non-stop care as they declined with a more devastating disease, many of our franchise owners know first-hand the difference that quality and compassionate senior care made in their families’ lives. Our founder Renae Peterson was inspired by her own mother, who was a client.
“A big part of why I’m here starts with my grandma, Joella,” Denver franchisee Ryan Fensler says. “I was blessed to be able to spend a lot of time with her growing up. Each day we’re able to surround ourselves with phenomenal caregivers and go out and make a difference in the community. I don’t know of any other industry where I could get that sense of fulfillment, where we’re giving to others.”
