Executive Care Set to Open San Jose Office
With an aging population that requires help with daily activities or with managing health, in-home care has become a popular solution. Looking to help manage the rising demand for such services, Executive Care, one of the nation’s leading providers of skilled home health care, is set to open an office in San Jose.
Slated to open December 1, the business will be located at 1101 S. Winchester Boulevard and will service Santa Clara County. This marks the opening of Executive Care’s second office in California. An office opened in Pasadena earlier this year.
“We believe in Executive Care’s mission, and we see the need in our community for an improved, coordinated level of care for local families and loved ones,” said Mahesh Gupta, who will own and operate the business with his wife, Sangeeta. “We are thrilled to be able to provide this much-needed service in San Jose, and to do so as a partner with Executive Care, who has a proven track record of success.”
Originally from India, Mahesh moved to the United States in 1994 and has worked as a software developer for the last 35 years. After caring for his aging parents, Mahesh increasingly saw the need for home healthcare services in his community and decided to help others by opening an Executive Care office.
“My parents back in India are in need of personal care. I personally saw the amount of juggling in daily life management back home, and I hope to help alleviate not only the seniors or injured pain, but the pain of their family members who are trying to care for them and live their own life,” noted Mahesh. “Executive Care allows me to care for my community at a time when families need a high level or coordinated care.”
Founded in 2004, Executive Care offers a variety of caregiving and skilled nursing services to help families often overwhelmed with the responsibility of providing care to a loved one – all while ensuring the patient remains in the comfort of his or her own home. Services range from companionship and help with meal preparation and household chores to help with bathing, personal hygiene and personal care. Executive Care also serves individuals recovering from illness, injury or surgery.
To guarantee the highest quality, Executive Care requires all prospective caregivers to undergo an intensive pre-employment screening process, including a criminal background investigation, verification of references and an employment history check. All caregivers are insured, experienced and undergo skills tests and continuing education training. Registered nurses closely supervise and monitor all staff, conducting periodic evaluation assessments.
“As Executive Care continues to increase our footprint from coast to coast, we are excited to enter the San Jose market and continue providing an alternative to a nursing home or other type of senior care facility,” said Todd Leonard, Vice President of Operations and Development at Executive Care. “We are pleased with the rapid growth we are experiencing, and look forward to new opportunities to assist our communities nationwide.”
To further augment the company’s growth, Leonard estimates the Bay Area market can hold ten additional offices and is seeking franchise partners who have a passion for health and helping others to assist in developing additional offices.
Including a franchise fee (for a territory with a population of 500,000 residents) of $44,900, initial investment to own and operate an Executive Care office ranges between $99,650 and $169,900. The franchise fee for a second territory is reduced to $35,900 and $29,500 for a third territory.
