A Growing National Challenge

Culture and tradition are vital to the New Zealand lifestyle. From the Maori to the Pâkehâ, the preservation of culture and tradition is important, and economic challenges can threaten their vitality. Today, a new challenge is confronting New Zealand. According to the Ministry of Social Development, the portion of New Zealand’s population that is over the age of 65 has increased from 11% in 1991 to 13% of the total population in 2009. This surge in the elderly population is expected to become 21 percent of the population by 2031. Organisations including the New Zealand Ministry of Health report that mobility, nutrition, physical activity, injury from falls, and sensory impairment are among the ailments that pose the largest risks both to the senior population and to the capacity of the health care organisations available to help them. Additional resources are needed to help meet the rising demand.

An Opportunity in An Expanding Industry

The franchised business sector in New Zealand is booming according to the most recent Franchising New Zealand survey. The survey revealed franchised businesses in New Zealand produce between $19 billion and $21 billion a year and employ over 100,000 people. Franchisor expectations for franchise sales has risen as well, with levels expected to increase by 32 percent. This growth, coupled with the rising demand for elderly care services, makes elder care franchise businesses a strong sector to investigate.
