Assessing Your Eligibility – Do You Have What It Takes?
The first step to starting a home healthcare agency is to determine whether or not you have what it takes.
Success in the senior care industry requires a specific set of skills and attributes, but many of these “prerequisites” are easy to obtain. There is a misconception that home healthcare agency owners require medical training and healthcare backgrounds. In reality, many of our franchisees focus entirely on the customer service, sales, and administrative aspects of the business, and leave the care to the qualified staff and registered nurses we employ.
Starting a home healthcare agency is much more inclusive than you might think. Our training can bring you up to speed on any aspect of franchising that you may be unfamiliar with. Whether you come from a background in sales, staffing, customer service, or healthcare, the Executive Home Care franchise family is right for you.
