Are you deciding whether you want to invest in a home care business opportunity or a sole proprietorship? If you have already determined that you have the passion and drive to run a senior care agency, the next step is to figure out the form that this business will take.

Reap the Benefits of Becoming a Franchisee with Senior Helpers

At Senior Helpers, we have seen many entrepreneurs grapple with the choice between franchising and sole proprietorship. Those who have chosen to purchase a franchise package with us have encountered many benefits along the way. When you choose franchising with Senior Helpers, you are in business for yourself, not by yourself. You’ll receive assistance with everything from processes to systems, and tools to training.

To learn more about what you can expect when you take advantage of our home care business opportunities, explore the list of benefits below.

  1. The ease of a turnkey business model.

If you’re new to the world of business ownership, you may feel overwhelmed by questions about how it all works. This overwhelm can cloud your excitement about opening a business and prevent you from connecting with the core reasons you wanted to open a home care agency in the first place. 

Choosing to work with a franchisor like Senior Helpers will ensure you are always able to step back and see the bigger picture. As we offer a turnkey business model, all you have to do is follow our instructions to get on the fast path to a successful business in home care.

  1. Improved access to financing. 

You may find that it is easier to get all the necessary financing when you have the weight of a successful, established brand name behind your business. At Senior Helpers, we have financing available for new franchisees through third-party lenders with no-cost qualifications and are SBA-approved.

In addition, you can benefit from the guidance of our experienced team as you learn about your financing options and move through the lending process. In contrast, you may find acquiring financing as a sole proprietor to be quite tricky, significantly slowing down your efforts to get your business up and running. 

  1. Name recognition that instills both potential clients and caregivers with trust.

In the industry of senior care, trust is an invaluable asset. Families would always rather put their loved one’s care in the hands of a known entity rather than an up-and-comer. As a Senior Helpers franchisee, you’ll benefit from our years of experience building a solid, trustworthy reputation even though you’re new to the industry. In fact, Senior Helpers has been recognized by influential third-parties including Entrepreneur, Fortune, The Alzheimer’s Association of America, and The Parkinson’s Foundation.

In addition to attracting potential clients, this reputation will also be noted by potential employees. That’s because Senior Helpers has been Great Place to Work® Certified for five years, a status that acts as a huge draw for caregivers who are looking for an employment destination.

  1. Nation-wide advertising campaigns and local marketing support.

In order to spread our brand’s message far and wide, we invest in both nationwide marketing campaigns as well as local marketing support for our individual franchise locations. As a sole proprietor, you would have to learn the ropes of marketing all on your own and engage in a lot of costly trial-and-error along the way. Conversely, as a franchisee, you’ll have our experts helping you create an “Off to the Races” marketing and lead generation strategy targeted to your local community, all while you simultaneously benefit from our more wide-scale advertising efforts.
