Touching Hearts at Home is a unique, non-medical home care company that began in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1996. Due to so much interest in our unique and compassionate approach to in-home care to seniors and others, which we see as a privilege that must be met with great integrity, we began franchising in 2007. We have been growing in across the United States ever since, as franchise owners in markets of all sizes find success with the affordable Touching Hearts at Home opportunity, which values empathy and the belief in the dignity of all people.
The senior-care industry is a dynamic, rapidly evolving segment of healthcare. About 20% of the total U.S. population, or 54 million people, are senior citizens. As the Baby Boomer generation, those born from 1946 to 1964, continues to age 10,000 people will turn 65 every day for the next two decades. Seniors' longevity with a desire to stay in their own homes is driving the demand for non-medical in-home care. At Touching Hearts, we are prepared to meet their increased needs, so consider becoming a part of a franchise dedicated to being the solution of choice.
Touching Hearts at Home franchise owners draw from a corporate team with a wealth of experience. For instance, founder and CEO Renae Peterson has extensive ownership experience in the non-medical in-home care services industry. Prior to franchising Touching Hearts in 2007, she owned and operated a senior-care business for 11 years. Renae was also a successful franchisee with Merry Maids, one of the largest home service franchises in the country, founded by her brother Dallen Peterson.
Improving the lives of the clients we serve is our driving passion. Delivering on the promise of quality care ensures a rewarding and successful partnership for all. Create a business that is a true community asset, making a difference in the lives of clients and their families every day.

“My life journey led me to desire to own and operate a business where I can help people, make a difference in the community and ensure lasting financial stability for my family. The decision to pursue Touching Hearts at Home was a very easy one for me. From the first phone call with Scott, I knew this was where I needed to be. The Touching Hearts at Home franchise is a family. Renae is the kindest, most supportive and intelligent CEO you will ever have the honor of working with. The entire franchise truly cares about each and every one of us. I always feel welcome, supported, and appreciated even though I'm the one who is deeply grateful for this opportunity. I had the freedom to negotiate my territory, received exceptional training and support materials, as well access to one on one support as often as I need. I network with the other owners for additional support and this is truly a fun family of successful entrepreneurs. I would highly recommend this company to anyone!”

“After more than a decade in the corporate world, we knew it was time for a change. When we decided we wanted to own a franchise, we began the process of researching the best in the industry.
When we first spoke to Touching Hearts at Home, we immediately connected with how down to earth and open they were. They made time to walk us through at our pace and connected us with other owners that were welcoming and willing to share their experiences. This process revealed to us how truly special the culture is; it is more than a business, it is a family.
With an industry that is growing rapidly, it was critical to us to have a lot of runway with regards to the size of territory we wanted. Additionally we required the flexibility to be the type of owners we wanted to be while respectfully representing a tremendous brand.
Approaching 1 year in business, we know we made the right choice with the right industry at the right time but more importantly, we know we joined the right family. We would, and have, recommended Touching Hearts at Home to others looking for a premium brand in a growing industry backed by an amazing support team.”
— Chad Sutkay, Owner, Touching Hearts At Home Racine, WI
“I became interested in a starting a new career in Home Services after navigating through the care giving process with my elderly father. I interviewed many franchises but partnered with Touching Hearts at Home because of the culture. Some of the other groups that I interviewed run their organizations with the sole focus being on the bottom line. Touching Hearts at Home is different. Renae Peterson, the CEO & Founder, is accessible and has a heart of gold. She allows her franchisees run their own business while being there for support. Touching Hearts at Home is more than a business - it is family.”
— Jeff Bryck, Owner, Touching Hearts at Home Elmhurst, Illinois
“I approached Touching Hearts at Home, as I was seeking to partner with a Franchisor that had a great reputation and was recognized on a national level.
Touching Hearts at Home has successfully achieved both, meanwhile having markets that are not over-saturated with an excessive amount of offices. With ongoing post-training support from the corporate office and that of my peers, I have the necessary resources to guide me on my path to success.
I would recommend Touching Hearts at Home to anyone wanting to join a group of experienced leaders that know what it takes to grow a thriving Home Care business. I know I made the right decision in joining the Touching Hearts at Home family!”
