As we all know, you can't chose your family, but...
If you love working with others and crave a career where you can make a real difference, then a senior home care franchise might be the right option for you. Choosing to work with seniors means you are choosing to help people each and every day. The home care industry provides a unique opportunity to contribute to your community while receiving a fantastic return on your investment.
"My favorite part of this business would have to be making lives better. When we hear about or see how our caregivers are really making a difference in peoples lives. We have family members who tell us they couldn't have done it without us. It's really powerful" says Carmen Eberle, Nurse Next Door Penticton franchisee.
Caring for Canada's aging population can be one of the most gratifying businesses you can get involved in. No business is without its fair share of work but a home care franchise not only pays financially but is emotionally gratifying as well. Most seniors prefer to stay in their own home for as long as possible, you can be part of the solution enabling them to do so.
According to Retire-At-Home Services, Canada has over 5 million seniors and 15% of them pay for private home care. By the year 2016, it is predicted that 1 in 6 Canadians will be a senior. It goes without saying that as Canada’s population ages and our healthcare system struggles to keep up, there will be an increase in demand for seniors home healthcare.
You likely agree that senior care franchises are booming right now, but is it a fit for you? In order to succeed in the senior home care business you really need to be a ‘people person’. When someone is depending on you, they can be unintentionally physically and emotionally demanding. To thrive in a senior's care environment, you will need to be a compassionate and patient individual.
There are a number of home care franchises expanding throughout Canada, each with their unique benefits. If you think purchasing a seniors care franchise is something you would be interested in pursuing, I encourage you to take the time to do your due diligence. Every opportunity is different but with the wide variety of opportunities available, there is bound to be one perfect for you.
