At Your Home Familycare Among San Diego’s Fastest Growing Businesses
Outstanding Growth Earns Ranking in 2009’s Top 100 by San Diego Business Journal
(San Diego) – Due to exceptional growth in providing client services, the San Diego Business Journal named At Your Home Familycare among San Diego’s Top 100 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies.
The list of the region's 100 fastest growing privately held companies is compiled annually by the San Diego Business Journal, an award-winning publication that examines the San Diego economy and offers analyses of the community's ever-changing business and economic scene. It is based on audited and verified company financial statements over a three year period from 2006 through 2008. This is the second year At Your Home Familycare has achieved this designation.
"It’s an incredible honor to be among such a select group of highly dedicated San Diego entrepreneurs," said Laurie Edwards-Tate, MS, President and Founder of At Your Home Familycare. "Though At Your Home Familycare is among the smallest of this remarkable group, I feel honored to serve our community's seniors, disabled, and youth, helping them to remain safely in their own homes."
"On behalf of everyone devoted to our mission, At Your Home Familycare wishes to thank the San Diego Business Journal for its critical support of San Diego-based businesses,” added Edwards-Tate.
In 2009 the market for in-home care nationwide is projected to reach approximately $15 billion, exhibiting a decade-long average compound annual growth rate of 10%. This industry is in its infancy.
Today, there are 36 million adults age 65 and over in the United States. This population is expected to nearly double to 70 million over the next 30 years. With an increasing average life expectancy for Americans reaching over 75 years of age, the need for senior care will continue to escalate.
To qualify for Top 100 consideration, businesses must be privately held and independent. The business cannot be a division or subsidiary of another company. Companies must have at least $200,000 annual revenue. The total annual revenue generated by all companies on the list: $57.3 billion. Total number of people employed by the listed companies: 13,404.
