Thinking of starting a home care business for elderly people, but not sure if your area is profitable? In today’s article, we address this common concern. Readers can use our franchise opportunity search tool or read on to learn 3 reasons why Senior Helpers is a good fit in any area.
Many people inquire about whether starting a home care business for elderly patients makes sense in their specific geographical area, and our default answer is “yes!” The aging process is not confined to certain parts of the country.
Because of our access to superior nutrition, medicine, and health services, the elderly population in America is enormous, and it continues to grow every year. 3.1 million seniors were added to the US population over the past 5 years, and by 2030, 20% of all Americans will be over the age of 65. This means that business is easy to come by wherever in the country your franchise dreams may take you – especially with the Senior Helpers brand reputation behind you.
That said, it is true that some healthcare institutions will be reluctant to establish themselves in rural areas. This problem is limited to healthcare services that require office or clinic locations. Because medical resources are so precious, large-scale medical centers will usually be constructed in busy cities so that they can be made available to as many people as possible. This is why you may have noticed that smaller “cottage towns” typically lack hospitals.
However, even rural areas can be profitable for homecare services. After all, the classic image of a “country doctor” making house calls originated in a rural area and was essentially the precursor to the Senior Helpers franchise.
Prior to the internet boom of 1993, means of long-distance collaboration were limited. Today, with the help of Skype technology, internet archives, email communication, and video tutorials, it’s easier than ever. This means that franchise opportunities are not limited to those areas that share a border with another Senior Helpers franchise. Though you may be required to travel for your initial training, the majority of your questions, inquiries, and support needs can be satisfied remotely. This makes starting a homecare business for elderly patients possible almost anywhere in America, creating some exciting opportunities for ground-level market entries.
Senior Helpers franchise opportunities are not limited to the United States. The world is aging, and we have the training, support, and systems required to help people around the world.
