What Is Home Care Assistance?
Home Care Assistance provides non-medical, in-home care for clients unable to sufficiently care for themselves. Typically our clients are 80 and older and receive care at least 12 hours per week from caring and thoroughly vetted caregivers. Many of our clients receive care from staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week because of our in-home care expertise.
Who typically Asks About In-Home Senior Care?
Usually, the senior client’s adult son or daughter (aged 45+) inquire about in-home care services.
How Do People Pay for In-Home Care Services?
The majority of our home care services are paid through private pay. Our services are not covered by Medicare, but they are covered by long-term care insurance. Around 90% of our clients pay in cash from the client’s own funds or from the family’s funds.
Can Only Affluent Families Afford Home Care?
This is not true at all. Some of the most successful Home Care Assistance franchise locations are set in areas with an average household income of less than $40k per year.
Why Choose Home Care Assistance?
The AARP conducted a survey that found that 90% of seniors aged 60 and over would prefer to age in the comfort of their own home. Home Care Assistance can provide one-on-one care in the familiarity of their home, for around the same price that they would pay in an assisted living, sometimes less! Assisted Living Facilities generally have a staff to patient ratio of 1 to 13 respectively, whereas Home Care Assistance specialists can provide undivided attention to the senior. Each caregiver is trained to provide a holistic standard of care that focuses on mind, body and spirit. Take a look at some of our books in our acclaimed Healthy Longevity series, such as “Happy to 102” and “The Brain Boost”.
What Is the Cost of a Home Care Assistance Franchise?
For a territory size of 200,000 residents, total franchise fees begin at $64,950. Depending on your desired territory size and where you open your retail location, the investment may total $199,000 to $223,950. Marketing spend, insurance, office rent and salaries over the first 12-18 months of business are included in this total.
What Does a Typical Home Care Assistance Franchise Owner Look Like?
You do not need a background in home care to become a Home Care Assistance Franchise owner. In fact, we have equipped franchise owners from all sorts of backgrounds to experience success in their franchise location, from executives to homemakers.
Is Home Care Assistance a "Home-Based" Business?
Home Care Assistance operates out of clean, modern retail storefronts that not only attract clients, but also help in recruiting caregivers and building referral relationships. This is a huge differentiation point between Home Care Assistance and other home care agencies.
Do You Include Training & Ongoing Support?
Every franchisee will be able to access a team of support and Home Care coaches to help with every stage of their business’ growth.
