Our Founders’ Story

How did they build a successful homecare business?

John DeHart and Ken Sim, Nurse Next Door Co-Founders saw a business opportunity when Ken’s pregnant wife had to go on emergency bed rest.

Ken hired a caregiver and was shocked to learn that the caregiver had just faxed in her resume the previous day to an employer she had never met! 

By doing more research into the homecare industry, John and Ken found that the homecare industry had a somber image with sterile businesses that only provided task-based responsibilities. The duo knew that they could create something better, hence the creation of Nurse Next Door in 2001.
