Owning an Executive Home Care franchise is a very rewarding and exciting way to do business, and we often get asked, what does a day in the life of a franchise owner look like?
Well, in many ways, it’s very much like a day for any small business owner; in other ways, it’s truly a unique and meaningful way to make your living. Here, we’ll dive a little more deeply into what makes the life of a franchise owner, particularly an Executive Home Care franchise owner, so interesting and fulfilling.
Managing Your Senior Caregiving Franchise Team
One of the first things you’ll do as a new Executive Home Care franchisee is put in place a team of professionals who understand the importance of compassionate and respectful in-home senior care. Your pre-opening training with us will prepare you to find, vet, and hire your staff—from individual caregivers themselves to management personnel—and once they’re in place, part of your life as a franchisee will be to manage them and their schedules. You’ll make sure the fit between client and caregiver is a good one, and communicate regularly with the family members of seniors as you learn more about their unique needs and tailor your care approach to them.
You’ll also spend regular time with your management team to set growth goals and determine key performance indicators, hire any new staff that may be needed, and address any concerns or issues that may arise. Running your successful Executive Home Care franchise is a true team effort, made much simpler thanks to our cloud-based technology platform that covers all aspects of business, allowing you to schedule time more easily, manage billing and payroll, communicate with clients, and much more.
Creating a Better Balance for Our Home Care Franchise Business Owners
During the first 12 to 18 months of your new franchise, you’ll be highly involved in its establishment. But after that, you might decide to turn over more of the daily responsibilities to your management team, leaving you the freedom to determine what kind of balance you’d like to strike between your personal and professional lives.
Ultimately, however, your Executive Home Care franchise is your business, an investment in your future, and a valuable asset to your community. As such, you’ll always want to stay involved in it to a certain degree—networking with your community, building relationships with other business leaders, and reaching out to your best customers as you grow our brand.
Throughout all this, you can count on the benefit of our ongoing corporate support. Our expert marketing efforts on your behalf, for example, will enable you to reach those best customers, and our industry expertise will help you stay on top of important trends. You’ll also have access to our proprietary Operations Manual, which contains breakdowns and best practices for all our processes and procedures, so you’ll always have answers at your fingertips.
The life of a home care franchise owner can be an exceptionally rewarding one, especially if you’re part of the Executive Home Care brand. To find out more, please get in touch today!
