Senior Home Care is Personal to Van
In 1998 Van’s mother passed away after suffering from pancreatic cancer. Near the end of her life Van’s family utilized a hospice service to provide primary care for their mother, and their eyes were opened to the impact of the home health care industry on patients and their families.
A New Path
After this experience, Van began researching the health care service business and attended classes to learn about health insurance so that he could become more familiar with the industry. With healthcare at the forefront, Van wanted to make sure he was well educated concerning the healthcare market. After meeting with the RAH corporate team during Discovery Day, Van realized the company truly understood the healthcare segment and provided an incredible support system for their franchisees to give the best client experience in the industry.
