LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. (October 22, 2020)—CareBuilders at Home, a national network of private duty homecare agencies providing comprehensive nonmedical homecare solutions, announced that it has appointed Lori Yount as Vice President of Operations. In her new role, Yount will oversee operational performance and franchisee training and support.
Prior to joining CareBuilders at Home, Yount served as CEO and Vice President of Franchise Development for an international in-home care concept which she grew by 350%. Her experience spans the home-based post-acute care industry, including durable medical equipment, skilled home health and hospice care, and private duty home care. She is an expert at developing and implementing franchise support functions, including sales coaching and training, that directly result in increased franchise owner revenue.
“Lori’s experience is unmatched. With nearly two decades of senior leadership experience in home-based care, she is uniquely qualified for the role and is set to make a big impact on our franchise system and growth,” said David Savitsky, CEO of CareBuilders at Home. “Brands have flourished under her focused leadership. We’re excited to welcome her to the team!”
Yount joins CareBuilders at Home at an exciting time. The emerging brand is rapidly expanding across the country, having recently signed franchise agreements covering key markets in Texas and Michigan. As the brand grows its footprint, Yount will be responsible for identifying and implementing best practices across all areas of the business.
“CareBuilders at Home is in an incredible position for growth,” said Yount. “COVID-19 has legitimized homecare agencies as an essential participant in the continuum of care and shone a spotlight on the value we bring to health care, the community, our clients and their families. The CareBuilders brand is backed by decades of experienced home care professionals and led by a blend of the top business and clinical minds in the healthcare industry. This unique combination of business and clinical expertise provides CareBuilders at Home franchise owners with unparalleled support that allows them to focus on growing their business and creating the best possible client and caregiver experience in the industry. I’m excited to join the team.”
