When you make the investment in a senior care franchise you want to make sure it’s going to be an investment that will lay the groundwork for something big down the road. When our franchisees start their new careers with us their fears are laid to rest by the senior care industry’s steady rise over the past decade. The need has never been greater for in-home senior care, and the awareness for this need has also been growing. In the past, retirement or assisted living facilities were the most viable option for senior citizens who needed personalized care.
Now, family members understand the value of allowing seniors to age in the comfort of their own homes. Senior Helpers allow seniors to age in the comforts of their own homes while our dedicated caregivers provide much-needed daily social interaction. Here’s what makes the Senior Helpers opportunity special.
One of the main reasons for the success of our franchisees is the thriving senior care industry. By 2020, the in-home senior care industry is expected to add at least 1.3 million new jobs, while at the same time, revenues for the global home health sector are projected to grow to $300 billion. According to the World Health Organization, nearly a quarter of the world’s population will be 60 years or older by 2050, meaning the need for in-home senior care is poised for growth and makes now the perfect time to invest in a senior care franchise.
According to The World Health Organization’s Department of Aging and Life Course, 32 to 42 percent of seniors over 70 suffer injuries as a result of falls each year, adding even further traffic to already oversaturated local health care systems. In-home care is crucial for keeping seniors safe, and preventing these accidents from occurring, as well as relieving pressure on hospitals and emergency rooms. Seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia also require highly specialized care to ensure their comfort and safety. In-home caregivers fill a vital role in providing this necessary care.
Senior Helpers franchisees help to provide the care, and train the caregviers, that the elderly will need as they age. As the needs of the elderly grow so too will your franchise grow with it.
When you open a senior care franchise, you won’t just be enjoying the benefits of a healthy, lucrative industry. You will also enjoy being able to give back to your community on a daily basis and feel like you’re making a difference in the lives of local seniors.
Caregivers are integral and indispensable parts of many family’s lives; they provide much-needed peace of mind, and a sense of confidence that their loved one is being expertly looked after. As a Senior Helpers franchisee you would be helping seniors get their motivation back, their independence back, and hopefully a positive outlook on life.
