Meet Shane Neuharth, Owner/Operator at Hallmark Homecare (

Tell us a little about your business. – Hallmark Homecare is a direct hire referral agency specializing in the recruitment of experienced, screened caregivers with clients on a direct hire basis. Essentially, we are the “matchmaker” between the caregiver and client. Our model provides advantages to both the caregiver and client compared to the traditional homecare model by eliminating the middleman.

How did you get started in the business? – I was approached on LinkedIn asking if I had any interest in Franchise opportunities. After going through the discovery process I felt Hallmark was a great fit giving my past experience in medical/healthcare sales. I knew the need for the aging population was there and wanted to help find a solution to those needing care.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – Probably just adapting to the everchanging landscape in Healthcare.

What has been your most important achievement professionally? – I would say surrounding myself with good people both as colleague’s and mentors.
