BrightStar Care, a provider of skilled medical and non-medical in-home care services, is looking to add 26 franchises in the Philadelphia region.
“The aging demographics in Philadelphia, coupled with the fact that there is an undeniable need for in-home care services, makes this community an exciting development region for BrightStar Care,” said Anthony Padulo, the company’s executive vice president of international and domestic franchise development.
The Philadelphia Corporation for Aging estimates that the number of people 85 years of age and older in the region will grow 19 percent to 34,230 residents by 2025.

Padulo said most of BrightStar’s franchise operators don’t come from the health care industry, adding that the company looks for people who are business managers with a “strong passion” for the home care business.
Franchise operators are required to have liquid assets of $100,000 and a net worth of $500,000. The initial investment to buy a franchise, according to the company's web site, is between $92,000 to $174,000.
