Our Story

Home care is in FirstVisit CEO Dan Bofoya’s DNA. Inspired by his mother’s career path as a caregiver, Dan’s first business was a home care franchise purchased from another family member. He later owned and operated an independent private duty agency, growing their client and caregiver roster five-fold over four years.

After finding and getting started with a popular home care software platform, Dan was disappointed to discover that – despite a steep price tag – it was outdated and clunky. Caregivers didn’t want to use it. The agency’s admin preferred to stay on pen and paper.

There had to be a better way. Except there wasn’t. So Dan decided to create it by building a user-friendly, intuitive and straightforward private duty home care platform: FirstVisit. With FirstVisit in place, home care agencies can:
And while we do make the best private duty home care software on the market, we also support home care agencies in a variety of other ways. Discover our resources for agencies at every stage of their business development.

Dan founded FirstVisit while operating a private duty home care business with his family. He quickly realized that the business software they were using was very limited compared to operating systems he had used in other areas of his life. He believed he could find a better software solution for the home care industry and so created FirstVisit! Dan received his Bachelor of Economics from the University of Saskatchewan and has extensive experience in the home care industry. His intense interest in technology paired with his passion for improving processes, made him perfectly qualified to tackle the software challenge and to succeed in bringing FirstVisit to the industry. In his free time Dan enjoys spending time with family, reading, and exercising.
