About Touching Hearts at Home

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.


"I knew I would be learning operational aspects such as tracking caregiver hours and client management, but I was very pleased learn that the leadership is tracking industry trends to help franchise owners grow their businesses. I think this industry is only going to grow, and I know that Touching Hearts at Home is standing behind me and my team as we work hard to grow this business.”
— Jeff Bryck, Touching Hearts at Home franchise owner in Elmhurst, Illinois

Why Touching Hearts at Home?

Serving clients today, planning for tomorrow

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.

Our experience lets you start strong and grow stronger

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.

Personalized Training & Support

We know the success of our franchise owners, and the care they provide, are at the heart of our success and growth as a company. That’s why our franchise owners receive the training and support they need to meet Touching Hearts’ high standards of quality. That includes:

  • A comprehensive onboarding process that includes several days at our corporate training site. This hands-on experience usually involves three or four new franchise owners, so that they can learn as a team, support each other and forge bonds that will prove invaluable as they collaborate on best business practices and grow their operations.
  • Ongoing support, including webinars, on-site visits, conference calls and our annual owners meeting ensure that no franchise owner is ever more than a phone call or email away from the answers or advice they need.

Ideal Candidate

Who makes a great Touching Hearts at Home franchise owner? We believe that in order to be successful in this business, a potential franchise owner should be/have:
