About HomeWell Senior Care
Joshua Hoffman started out as an in-home caregiver himself. A client asking him when he was going to start his own business inspired him to open HomeWell Senior Care. The Seattle-based company began franchising in 2003. Though HomeWell franchises offer nonmedical companion care services, Hoffman based the business model on a licensed home health care agency model.
