About Homewatch CareGivers

Powerful Home Care Franchise Opportunities

In 1980, Homewatch CareGivers® was founded by Paul Sauer on the principle of delivering high-quality and compassionate care to people who needed home care services. Homewatch CareGivers provided senior care services in the Denver Metro area through the late 1990s and eventually began franchising upon realizing there was a greater need for quality home care services throughout the country. For nearly four decades, the Sauer family ran the company and continued to expand its national and international footprint.

Today, the original vision of being the premier provider of home care services continues under the ownership of parent company Authority Brands, LLC. Under Homewatch CareGivers’ Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Tucker, Homewatch CareGivers endeavors to strengthen its position within the continuum of care by preserving dignity, independence and safety for clients.
