Born and raised in Lima, Bullock stayed in her hometown and followed her dreams of nursing. With a registered nurse degree from James Rhodes State College and a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Ohio University, Sandra spent the past 11 years working a variety of nursing jobs including long-term, skilled nursing; in-home healthcare; and hospice.

“I was inspired by my experience with in-home healthcare, as this service will continue to be important as Lima’s baby boomer population continues to age,” said Bullock. “It’s important to both seniors and their families for seniors to be able to age gracefully in the comfort of their homes. I’m excited to bring this much-needed service to Lima and look forward to working closely with the local community.”

Now is a critical time for the in-home care business, due to the 78 million baby boomers who are already 65 years old, and with 10,000 people turning 65 every day in the United States.

“We are thrilled with Sandra’s experience with in-home healthcare nursing and her passion for improving the Lima community,” said Brian Petranick, chief executive officer and president of Right at Home. “Right at Home is revolutionizing the in-home care industry, especially since there are more elderly across the world living at home, exactly where they want to age comfortably and happily. With family not always close to their loved ones, we can apply learnings and experience from all over the globe to ensure the Right Care will be given by the Right People to the ever-increasing aging population throughout the world.”

This new office opening comes after a successful first quarter, when Right at Home opened 14 new franchise units and signed agreements to open an additional 10 territories. Right at Home’s success so far this year builds off the momentum of a successful 2015. Last year, the company performed more than 20 million hours of care for its clients and opened 53 new franchise units. The brand was also identified as one of the “Top Franchises to Buy in 2015” by Forbes magazine for the second consecutive year. And for the third straight year, Right at Home was honored by Franchise Times on its “Fast and Serious” ranking of the top 40 “smartest-growing” brands that are seeing consistent annual unit and revenue growth.
