While all of our Senior Helpers franchisees have a passion for giving back to their communities, and helping local families, some franchisees have dedicated their lives to it even before joining with us. Since we’re in the business of improving the quality of life for our clients, and creating peace of mind for families, it’s no surprise that many of our franchisees are former first responders. Pursuing one of our elder care franchise opportunities allows you to continue helping your community while also allowing you to build a business and pursue your entrepreneurial dreams. Here’s what you can expect if you join our team as a veteran or first responder.


Transitioning from being a veteran or first responder to owning an elder care franchise might seem daunting, but it’s actually a more natural career pivot than you might think. As a franchisee, you’ll be able to transition out of an exhausting, stressful job, and into a role that allows you to continue helping your community. When you become an elder franchise owner, you will still have the benefit of a fulfilling career while also taking a less physically intensive, behind-the-scenes role. You will have the luxury of being your own boss, while still actively contributing to the welfare of the senior citizens in your community.

The Elder Care Franchise Opportunity

While you may already have relevant experience, we know you’re probably not an expert in franchising or business ownership. That’s okay. When you open an elder care franchise with us you’re signing on with an already-established brand and an excellent suite of products and services. We’ll give you a business plan to follow, which can be a great guideline for the early stages of franchising. We also offer a comprehensive training and support system designed to help you work through any obstacles.

What Makes You a Good Candidate

While many factors are taken into consideration when selecting our franchisees, including personal finances, business experience, and industry knowledge, we place a particularly high value on your passion for giving back to the community. Our brand is centered around making seniors feel comfortable, and the desire to get involved with local charities and senior programs, so we want to make sure our franchisees share our passion for caregiving. With veterans and first responders, we find that this value comes second nature to them.

As a first responder, you have years of experience devoting your career to families' peace of mind. You’re used to working under pressure and being responsible for the lives of others. We’re excited to work with people in this category because they understand the seriousness of a business that revolves around putting others first.
