The Visiting Angels Heritage

We have been providing quality home care, across the world, for over 20 years. The company was founded in 1998 by Larry Meigs, who, after two decades in franchising, felt compelled to make a change in the care industry. Utilising his extensive business acumen and franchise know-how, Larry launched the very first Visiting Angels office in Havertown, Philadelphia, USA.

We now have over 600 franchisees operating in five countries: USA, Canada, Mexico, South Korea and the UK. We proudly support over 15,000 clients and provide work to almost 16,000 caregivers worldwide. Our global network enables unprecedented sharing of best practice, innovation and peer-to-peer support.

Today, Larry is still Chief Executive of Visiting Angels worldwide and plays an active role in the business. His passion and enthusiasm just keep on growing… as does our network!

In 2017, the Visiting Angels brand came to the UK under the expert leadership of Dan Archer; a franchise veteran and passionate ambassador for quality care at home.

Dan launched the first UK office in October 2017. In less than 12 months, Visiting Angels Sheffield proved to be one of our most successful new franchises. Ever. We’re now focussed on finding and supporting an army of likeminded professionals to embed the Visiting Angels brand across the UK.

The Visiting Angels brand

There’s more to a name than just sounding charming. Our brand encompasses the care, comfort and confidence that we bring to the lives of those we support. People in the UK, and across the world, often refer to our caregivers as “Angels”; add to that the fact that we visit them at home and it’s easy to see why our name is so apt and so memorable.

For our franchisees, being part of a brand which is unforgettable helps to secure your position both as a care provider and employer of choice in your local community; which proves essential for building a strong business.

For our clients and their families, our name brings with it a feeling of positivity and warmth, reassuring them of our best intentions. Given the choice, wouldn’t you want an angel to care for your loved one?

Why Visiting Angels?

A Unique Approach. We proudly acknowledge that our approach to business is different to anything you’ll have seen in the franchise care space until now. In addition to being carer-centric, our model isn’t based on building a network of hundreds of franchisees. We believe in quality over quantity. Why?

  • Mutual gain: by focusing on your business, its growth and success, all parties benefit
  • Share of voice: as one of 100, your share of voice is greater and more influential as a franchisee
  • Size matters: your territory is large enough to sustain substantial business growth
  • Family values: our network is a family. We want you to genuinely know your fellow franchisees
  • Face time: Limited our network size ensures that everyone gets regular 121 times with stakeholders
