3 Tips to Find the Best Senior Care Franchises
Today’s post shares some strategies you can use to evaluate homecare companies for sale near you. Read on to learn 3 things that all the best senior care franchises have in common, then see how your current #1 choice holds up in comparison!
Evaluate The Company’s Web Presence
We’ve reached a tipping point in 2019. Internet search is now the most common method consumers use to evaluate companies before committing to a purchase. And make no mistake, there’s plenty they can glean from your website and social media pages alone.
The best senior care franchises understand that establishing a strong digital presence is crucial in 2019. Take a quick visit to your prospective brand’s website and socials. Are you happy with what you see? Is the material they post valuable? Are their followers engaged? Most important of all, are you able to book a consultation or get in touch with a representative with a few clicks?
For an idea of what you’re up against–or what you could have–check out our website! Our socials, citations, and web assets are exactly the kind of thing you should be looking for.
Look For Industry Seals Of Approval
While there is no singular “seal of approval” to watch for, certain industry accolades work just as well.
The best senior care franchises will have plenty. From positive reviews on third party websites to industry awards and favorable media coverage, there are plenty of informal “seals of approval” you can hunt down.
Take Executive Care for instance. In our nearly 16 years of business, we’ve accrued dozens of glowing reviews, positive media coverage, and a whole litany of awards and accolades. You can find all these and more with a few minutes of dedicated Google research.
Opt For Multi-service Care Models
While there are some benefits to dominating a niche, many senior care franchises box themselves into corners by offering only 1 or 2 forms of care.
Thanks to advancements in medical science and nutrition, Americans are living longer than ever before, and that’s drastically changing the way elderly populations are using care services. Older populations are more prone to disability, chronic pain, mobility limitations, frailty, and dementia, which makes them the heaviest users of specialized and skilled care services by far.
In 2019, the number of older adults requiring specialized care has never been higher. Research by the journal of Social Work in Health Care indicates that the over-80 population will comprise more than 5% of all seniors by 2030 (Spitzer et al., 2004). This is going to impose a lot of new demands on America’s senior care infrastructure.
With these variable care needs in mind, it makes sense that all the best senior care franchises offer more than one kind of home care support.
Executive Care offers a broad range of senior care services, including:
- Companionship care
- Personal care
- Live-in care
- Specialized care
- Skilled care
- Supplemental staffing
By offering all of these services under roof, our franchisees are truly able to make a difference in their communities. Whatever care needs arise in your area, you will be able to help! Additionally, multi-service care models maximize your potential profits and resilience by ensuring your business appeals to a broader clientele.
