How to Evaluate a Home Care Franchise for Sale
So you’re ready to get started with a home care franchise, but you need some help evaluating your options. That’s understandable–there certainly are enough out there to feel overwhelmed.
Make sure you’re not tying your investment and entrepreneurial talents to a sinking ship with the following four evaluation tips:
#1) Your home care franchise should have policies you’re proud of.
If the home care franchise in question doesn’t have policies you can stand behind, look elsewhere.
First and foremost, Executive Care is about high quality care. That’s why every care plan is customized, and why all of our caregivers and Registered Nurses must complete comprehensive reference and background checks. Every member of our staff is bonded and insured. We also never outsource client care–all of our employees are ours, never subcontracted, and that means they all meet our initial and ongoing training requirements. Furthermore, all caregivers are closely supervised to ensure the clients’ loved one is always getting superior service. We also conduct periodic follow-ups to ensure that each family has the right caregiver match, and if not, we offers caregiver swaps at no charge until the client is completely satisfied.
Executive Care is also big on transparency. Before clients commit to any in-home care packages, we provide a no-obligation, face-to-face meeting. This gives us an opportunity to learn more about our clients’ care needs, and gives their families an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about our personalized services.
And since ultimately our goal is about providing care for those in need, we do everything we can to make our service affordable and accessible. We do all we can to help clients find long term care insurance policies to cover the cost of their home care services. We also never charge additional costs or fees–if additional charges are required as a result of increasing care needs, clients get notified well ahead of time, and there’s never any obligation.
#2) Your home care franchise should offer a complete continuum of care.
America’s long-term care needs are diverse and dynamic. If your chosen home care franchises is only focusing on one or two long-term care services, you’re missing major sales and caregiving opportunities.
Executive Care offers a complete continuum of care, including:
- Personal care
- Live-in care
- Specialized care
- Skilled care
Our home care franchise model is built on seven potential revenue streams. You can learn about all seven on our website.
#3) Your home care franchise should have a trusted reputation.
In the senior care industry, clients are entrusting the safety and comfort of their loved one to your company. Starting a business in a trust-based industry isn’t easy, unless you’re partnering with a brand that already has a trusted reputation.
Executive Care has been helping families lift the care burden and improve the quality of life of their aging parents since 2004. In that time, we’ve earned an exceptional reputation, both online and locally. We are a proven care commodity, and our franchisees feel the difference that makes.
#4) Your home care franchise should have quality training and support.
Executive Care provides initial training, opening support, ongoing support, on-site visits, and comprehensive marketing and sales assistance. Some of our most successful franchisees entered into our system without any experience in sales, senior care, or marketing–if your prospective home care franchise can’t make the same claim, proceed with caution.
