Richmond Hill South/North York. (October 17th, 2022) Nurse Next Door announced today the celebration of another successful year of running of its franchise location in Richmond Hill South/North York, Toronto. The award-winning, senior homecare provider is the first location for the city, and long-term residents and franchise owner, Johnny Ogbonna is bringing “Happier Aging” to the community.

After 7 years as an entrepreneur, Ogbonna a trained Engineer by profession with quite a number of other professional certifications and trainings was looking for a new way to support their community and to bring happiness to senior residents. When Ogbonna found Nurse Next Door, it was a perfect match.

“I was inspired to start my own franchise because I was drawn to the Happier Aging approach to senior care. Our goal as an organization is to keep our seniors living at home, while also getting them back to doing the things they love by exploring and discovering new experiences together, said Ogbonna.

Studies suggest that 50% of our happiness comes from our genetics and 10% from circumstances for which we can’t control – but 40% is self-made. 40% of self-made happiness comes from deliberate positive experiences that personally drive each of us. “We tend to put an emphasis on our goals, dreams and passions from our childhood to adult years, but as our seniors get older, they often stop participating in these activities that make them happy. This can be out of fear that they can no longer participate like they used to, or for other reasons, like mobility issues” said Ogbonna.

What if you had to give up doing the things that made you happy – the things you love to do? This question is at the heart of Nurse Next Door’s unique concept of Happier Aging. Many seniors have stopped pursuing their passions and dreams which can lead to overall feelings of unhappiness and eventually depression.
Opportunities that bring happiness can be big or small. Going to a garden center to choose summer bulbs, or playing a chess match at the park are some of the small things Nurse Next Door can do for clients to keep them engaged in the things they are passionate about. But there have also been some big dreams fulfilled by Nurse Next Door. Robert, a World War II veteran was able to take flight after 63 years on a Harvard Aircraft when his caregiver discovered his passion for flight. Miss Daisy, an 88 year old client who needs 24-hour nursing care started a bucket list with her caregiver, which included starting her own vegetable garden, and more notably, attending her first striptease show.

It’s this passion that has differentiated Nurse Next Door from other healthcare providers. The organization offers fundamental healthcare needs, such as home nursing, personal care and meal preparation – as well as customized care that focus on what brings joy to their client’s everyday life.

“Happier Aging is about getting our seniors back to doing the things they love,” said Johnny Ogbonna. “We want our clients to live their best lives, without boundaries.” said Ogbonna.
