Starting a home care franchise may seem difficult on the surface, but the whole team at Senior Helpers is there to help make the process as streamlined and smooth as possible. From investment to location hunting to opening your doors, the franchise support team at Senior Helpers is there to help you remain poised for success. But there are a few things you can do when exploring starting a home care franchise that can help you hit the ground running.

A Reasonable Investment for Starting a Home Care Franchise

The biggest hurdle to starting a home care franchise is the initial investment. Luckily for you, getting a Senior Helpers franchise off the ground is much more affordable than you would think. No, you do not need to be a millionaire to invest in a Senior Helpers home care franchise. The initial franchise fee is only $49,500 with a total upfront investment between $100,000-$143,000. That makes starting a home care franchise through Senior Helpers among the most inexpensive investment opportunities in senior care franchising.

Finding Your Home

The population is aging. Per The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, the population of Americans over the age of 65 is projected to reach 98 million by the year 2060 – which is more than double the 43.5 million people over 65 as of 2014. That means there will be a growing need for qualified senior care in the coming decades, and as the senior population grows so too will the overall population. This, in turn, means that there will be communities in the forthcoming years in need of in-home senior care, a service you and your Senior Helpers franchise can provide. Once you’ve gotten the ball rolling and you’re looking at starting a home care franchise, take note that you won’t have to look far from home. Senior Helpers has available territories in 49 states including Alaska and Hawai’i. No matter where you live there will be a location near you for your Senior Helpers franchise.
