View the stories of two more of our $5+ Million Club Member Agencies. One of the owners of was providing care to families in their homes as a caregiver when she approached us to start her very own home care business. Three years later, with our backing and support, she had built a $5+ million home care agency. Our members are not extraordinary people – but they have a passion for helping others – and are not afraid of the hard work it requires to implement our proprietary tools and programs into their communities.

We recently completed the Boot Camp training with AHI Group – what a great experience! The training program and content was excellent, providing all information required to assure a strong start to our home care business. Thanks Mark and Kristy for a great week and I look forward to getting connected with my coach/mentor soon!

AHI Group is a valued partner and is always very responsive to all our questions. The entire team has been wonderful and has given us the tools and coaching needed to grow our home care agency. I would not hesitate to refer this company to others.
AHI Group Veterans Pension Benefit Program Starts The Conversation
“I have been in medical sales for over 15 years and I can tell you the AHI Group VA Program starts the conversation with any physician or skilled nursing facility. We have only been launched for a few weeks and already have two clients activated and a handful that want to start care services once they get discharged. For the first time in my career I truly feel we are helping someone out every day. Thanks for all your help, great lead generating programs, and support!”

January 2019 – Been so busy this past year that we have not put up all our membership groups on this site. Our new years resolution in 2019 to do better at that this year! Haha. Another great group of our newest members to go through our initial training and get handed over to our “post launch support team” consisting of people who have previously started and grown their very own home care businesses from the group into multi-million dollar operations in 3-5 years. We enjoyed having our assisted living placement specialist come and visit this group and talk about how our members can make $1,500 to $7,000 for simply referring a senior to an assisted living community – and get paid by the community if the senior chooses to move into that community. There is a company named “A Place For Mom” out there who makes their sole income from doing exactly this – it is called “Assisted Living Placements.” This is just one of the handful of “Snap On” businesses that we teach our members and give them all the tools and support they need to successfully implement the snap on businesses into their local community.

July 2018 – Another great group of our newest AHI Group Members getting ready to open their doors for business in their various locations across the nation! We had a guest speaker at our boot camp who is an AHI Group Member of 6 years. He joined AHI Group in 2012 and now runs a $6 Million home care agency in California (a state with one of the highest levels of competition in the home care industry). Our guest explained how beating out his competition was key to his agency’s success over the last 6 years. He said that the unique programs and tools that he received from AHI Group were the catalyst to getting him in doors that were closed to others. This agency now has three offices with plans to open additional offices in other locations across California. The owner is super glad that he has not been restricted to small territory as has been able to follow the business wherever it has taken him and his agency. The owner said that his gut feeling to not go with a franchise 6 years ago has led to him being able to have true ownership of his business and expand it to achieve much more than he could ever have achieved if he purchased a franchise territory in his local area… especially when most of the “good” territories had already been sold to other franchisees – leaving him with just one small good territory to market his business and no prospects for purchasing another good one close by to enable expansion. With AHI Group, our agency owners are able to expand their business any time in any direction and follow the leads and referral sources wherever they are located. This allows our members to capture all the opportunities that come to them. That’s true business ownership and a core value at AHI Group!

January 2018 – Welcome to our newest 2018 AHI Group, Inc members! They were a fun bunch with lots of vitality and humor. We wish our Members lived closer so we could see them all more often – but alas they are spread across the country so phone calls and emails have to suffice. We really do feel like each of our members becomes part of our “AHI Family” once they have gotten to know our team and been with us for 5 solid days here in Irvine, California. This is just the beginning, of course, the real work starts once they open their doors for business – but the groundwork has been completed and their relationships with our founders (Mark & Kristy Dunning) and our support team here have been solidified. This gives a solid platform and friendship to work with ongoing – which is very important to the culture and approach of AHI Group, Inc. Every member of AHI Group, Inc is an integral part of the whole operation and we truly value each member’s individual contributions to further the good name of AHI Group, Inc nationwide and promote our Gold Standard of Care in the Senior Care Industry.

September 2017 – Another excellent group of entrepreneurs to go through our Boot Camp and become our newest members of AHI Group, Inc. This group had a nice group of Nurses and other healthcare professionals like Physical Therapists, Pharmaceutical Sales Reps, and Medical Device Sales Reps. AHI Group is always looking for bright and talented individuals who have a passion for helping others. If you feel like you are such an individual and would like to find out more about starting a home care business in the booming senior care market place then reach out to our business development team for a free consultation by calling the above phone number or filling out our ‘Contact Us’ form above. On another note – we had an AHI Member from Indiana notify us that they are opening another office in a neighboring state and would like our assistance in helping them get licensed in this state. Per our agreement with them back in 2012, we agreed to assist them at no extra cost with getting licensed in as many states as they desire as they grow their business. We are always proud to see our AHI Member Agencies growing into new market places and expanding the capability of our VA Program across the nation.

July 2017 Boot Camp. Another terrific group of individuals from various backgrounds that are getting ready to open their doors for business and jump into our post boot camp support teams that consist of a coach who has previously owned a successful home care agency and a handful of other AHI Group member agencies from across the nation who have already launched their agencies. On another note, we recently saw that two of our home care agencies are posted on a large home care software company’s website – as two of the fastest growing home care agencies in their respective states. Click here to see a copy of the two articles. One of the home care agencies has grown 15x in size in the last 6 years of being in business and last year decided to start their own franchise – which is allowable under the AHI Group model. The other doubled their revenue for the second year in a row during 2016. Great to see these AHI Member Agencies making their mark in their local communities and taking great care of seniors and those with disabilities!

April 2017 Boot Camp. Another great group to go through our onboarding training. They will finish up their training by doing an additional two days of home study – which will total 8 days of training. For those who have got their state license already they are able to launch within 2-3 weeks after completing our Boot Camp and become our newest AHI Group Members! We recently got feedback from one of our agencies who launch 1.75 years ago in PA. The agency now has 110 employees and is “growing fast” according to their agency owner who was previously an RN and worked in a hospital setting before coming onboard with our organization. It is always great to see our home care agencies providing jobs out there and most of all helping seniors get the care they need so they can enjoy the sunset of their lives.

January 2017 Boot Camp. We had three existing home care agencies attend this boot camp. These agencies have already been in business for a number of years and were looking to get access to our Veterans Program and our Workers Compensation Program to help them drive more revenue and clients to their home care agencies. The owners of these existing agencies were very impressed and pleased with the Boot Camp training and stated “the training was so detailed and very well organized” and “wished I had got this training before I launched my own home care business as it would have saved me thousands of dollars in insurance premiums alone, and legal fees, and wasted marketing dollars…” We also had seven other parties who are new members of AHI Group and starting their home care agencies in various locations across the nation. All enjoyed the ‘kick off’ to their new career as a home care agency owner and are looking forward to the networking, weekly coaching calls, and day to day support from our AHI Group Support Team to help them remember and successfully implement what they learned this past week at our 5 day Boot Camp Training.

July 2016 Boot Camp. Its been so busy around here this past 8 months we have not put up our recent Boot Camp pictures and testimonials. Here we go for July 2016 Boot Camp. Another great group of our newest AHI Group Members. We had a great week together and look forward to getting their doors open for business in the next few weeks – once their pre-launch tasks are completed. They will then be assigned into one of our coaching/mentoring groups where they will be coached by our support team who have previously owned a successful home care business and are each now working in our Corporate office after selling it. They will learn from those who have actually been there and successfully ‘done that’. Unlike some of our competitors in both the franchise and non-franchise worlds who have no-one on their corporate team who has actually owned (from the ground up) a successful Home Care business. We consistently see that those of our AHI Group Members who use our unique programs stand out from the crowd in their local communities. The devil is in the detail and we guarantee that our AHI Group Members can beat out any competitor home care agencies who are claiming to have a VA Program due to the discounted care pricing and the interest free loan we offer families. It equates to more hours of care for the Veteran/Spouse and allows them to start care often without paying out of pocket due to our interest free loan program. It all rolls out to be the most attractive and cost effective VA Program for families nationwide. Add to that our National Insurance Contracts that bring clients to our AHI members door’s without requiring them to do any marketing and you have two programs that can pay for the personal care services of your clients – which is a huge determinant in whether or not people get care services in place or not. If families cannot afford the care then they cannot start care. However, if they can get their care paid for then they are usually very eager to get the care in place and start reaping the benefits of it in their day to day lives. At the end of the day – that is the most rewarding part of doing this type of business – we get to see lives change for the better every day as we help these wonderful seniors maintain their lives at home instead of going to a nursing home or something similar. You can’t put a price tag on how good that feels.

July 2015 Boot Camp Class. This was a wonderful group of new AHI Group Members. From Doctors, Nurses, to non medical HR professionals and in between, this group came from many walks of life but with one thing in common – a strong desire to help seniors in their local communities get the care they need in the sunset of their lives and grow their home care businesses to be the Gold Standard of Care in their communities using AHI Group’s tools and coaching! Also, here are some recent updates from some of our member agencies out growing their businesses. “Hey Team, just wanted to let you know that we have 43 clients now. We hope to hit the 50 mark by end of next month to keep on track with our next milestone! Anyway, just wanted to thank you and your team for all your hard work and consistent support of our agency. We love the lead generating programs and other marketing tools that give us a great edge in our community. Talk to you on next weeks call! Also, we’ll be out in CA for vacation in a couple of months and will let you know so I can drop by and take you guys out to lunch! Talk to you soon. Mike and Laurie.”

April 2015 Boot Camp Class. Another great group of medical professionals and people from various non healthcare industries – all with a common passion and desire to help seniors. Four of our newest agency owners almost signed with nationwide home care franchises and a fifth almost signed with a consulting/membership organization when they ran into AHI Group – StartupHomeCare. Here’s why one of them chose AHI Group, “Our decision came down to comparing apples to apples. We realized we were getting everything and more when we compared line by line what the franchise was going to give us vs. AHI. The VA program, LTC Insurance corporate contracts, Workers Compensation Insurance contracts to drive new client leads, and ALF referral programs that bring clients to our business were also a huge selling point.” This boot camp also brought two existing home care agencies to AHI who wanted to learn how to better sell private pay services in their local community. One of them is the largest home care agency in the state of Georgia and runs on Medicaid Waiver revenue. This agency had hired marketing consultants, marketing sales people, etc. but had never been able to crack the private pay market place – despite being the largest independent home care agency in Georgia with 500+ employees. Upon speaking with AHI Group – StartupHomeCare, this Georgia agency owner knew very quickly that AHI has an outstanding and unique organization and wanted to come on board to learn how to beat out their local competition in the private pay world. In addition, getting access to AHI’s VA Program, Long Term Care, Workers Compensation Insurance, and Medical Device Corporate Contracts were a few more reasons they paid the same funds as everyone else to become a member of AHI. We look forward to meeting this agency owner in Tampa, FL next month for the National Assisted Living Association Annual Conference where AHI will be a Gold Sponsor. If you are in Tampa come visit us at booth #1121 May 4-6, 2015.
