Press Release Summary: Locally owned and operated franchise to deliver quality
in-home care to Victoria seniors.

Press Release Body: With approximately 18% of Victoria residents currently 65 years
or older, the needs of local seniors are extremely important. As the national
percentage of seniors is set to double over the next 20 years, Nurse Next Door,
Western Canada's largest in-home senior care provider, has launched a franchise
dedicated to the Victoria area to help address the rapidly growing senior care

The newest Nurse Next Door franchise, locally owned and operated by Alyshia Vogt,
will address the healthcare needs of Victoria seniors by providing a viable
alternative to long-term care facilities. With current nursing homes proving to be
both costly and inefficient the vital services Nurse Next Door provides allow
today's local seniors to live comfortably at home.

"This franchise allows us to improve the quality of life for thousands of Victoria
seniors and ease the burden on their caregiving families," says Vogt. "We are trying
to educate residents now to help them understand that there is an affordable
opportunity to keep their aging loved ones at home while still receiving the care
and attention they need."

Vogt, an experienced registered nurse, made the shift from hospital nursing to
building an in-home senior care business because of her experiences in institutional
care settings.

"Our hospitals and care facilities are facing very difficult challenges in caring
for our seniors and it is our aging loved ones that are suffering," said Vogt. "As
an entrepreneur, I wanted to step up and help address this challenge by keeping
seniors where they want to be - in their own homes."

Nurse Next Door's Victoria franchise provides a full spectrum of in-home senior care
services ranging from 2-hour per week companionship to 24-hour, round-the-clock care
from a registered nurse. These services help individuals who have a variety of
professional care needs live happy, healthy and at home.
