It’s not unusual for prospective franchisees to have questions about Executive Home Care’s senior home care franchise opportunities, and we welcome them. Smart investors do their homework, compare brands and offerings, and spend time investigating their options.
Ours is an important industry that meets the needs of more and more seniors every year, so it’s doubly important to be as well-informed as possible before becoming part of it. Here, we’ll look at four common questions we get about our senior care franchise opportunity and their answers.
Do I Need Healthcare Industry Experience to Start a Home Care Franchise?
One of the most important advantages of an Executive Home Care franchise investment is that you need no prior healthcare industry experience to take advantage of it. This is primarily for two reasons: first, we make sure you’re thoroughly trained in everything you’ll need to know to operate your franchise successfully before your doors open for business. Our experts will teach you how to find and hire the right staff, how to market your franchise, how to set growth goals, and manage client expectations, among many other essential topics.
Secondly, your franchise will be providing services that are non-medical in nature, which means you needn’t be a doctor, nurse, or any sort of licensed health professional to deliver care. What will help you operate your franchise is prior business or management experience and the drive to succeed!
What Kinds of Services Will My Senior Care Franchise Provide?
Generally speaking, your services will revolve around the in-home care of seniors who need basic help with activities of daily living. These include companionship care, light housework, running errands, managing medications, tending to personal hygiene, overnight stays, and more. You’ll also be there for the family members of seniors in the way of respite care, giving them the time they might need to relax without having to worry about caring for their senior loved one.
Will I Be Providing the Care Myself?
No. Your main function will be to oversee operations with the help of your staff, and set growth goals, network with your community, and grow your business through marketing efforts—all with our help, of course! During your pre-opening training, we’ll teach you how to attract, vet, and keep the qualified caregivers you’ll need to provide your suite of services. We pay very close attention to the client/caregiver relationship, which is a real brand differentiator and one that sets our franchisees apart from the competition.
How Much Money Can I Make with My Home Care Business?
This is a common question, and the honest answer is that much of your success will depend on a number of factors, including:
· How thoroughly you follow our business model
· How actively you market your franchise
· How involved you are with your community
· How quick you are to respond to feedback and opportunities
· How driven you are to succeed
While no franchisor can promise ultimate success, what we can assure you of is our complete commitment to your growth as you find your place in a thriving and recession-resistant industry. Many of our franchisees are earning meaningful incomes while living meaningful lives delivering care to a growing demographic.
