Larry Aronson is the owner of Homewatch CareGivers, which serves South Orange and surrounding communities. In May, he was named a 'Star Franchisee' by CNBC after being selected from over thousands across the country.

The real star here is the team of people that work together to deliver high quality care in our community. Through their efforts we make a difference in the lives of our clients and their families," said Aronson.

"We have seen how having a high touch model really impacts our clients positively," said Stacey Chusid, R.N., director of nursing at Homewatch CareGivers of South Orange. "When clients have an issue with a medication or a change in condition, they turn to us so we can coordinate care with their health care provider and loop in their family, too."

"Ultimately, seeing the benefit to the clients is what makes our team excel. Our entire organization is committed to exceeding client and family expectations. We're very pleased to be recognized for doing so," said Margo Weill, M.S.W., director of client care at Homewatch CareGivers of South Orange.

Aronson and his team have previously been named a Leader in Excellence by Home Care Pulse, a satisfaction management firm that surveys both employees and clients to find those business owners who go beyond expectations in home care.

America's Star Franchisees were selected through a partnership with CNBC and Franchise Business Review, which reviewed 28,500 franchisees representing 364 brands between June 2014 and December 2015. Using a variety of metrics, one franchisee was selected from each state as a 'Star' within a top-performing franchise brand.

Homewatch International Inc. is the franchisor that Homewatch CareGivers of South Orange is part of.

"Larry has been an important part of our network of franchisees for over seven years now," said Leann Reynolds, CEO of Homewatch International Inc. "He has been successful financially and in delivering quality, dependable home care. We are so proud of his efforts and the efforts of his team."
