When you run a home care franchise, you’re not just running a business: you’re undertaking a great deal of responsibility, and investing in a platform that can be a valuable resource for your community.
Senior Helpers franchisees might be spirited and ambitious entrepreneurs, but what makes them so successful is their innate desire to play an active role in their communities, to make a lasting difference in the lives of their patients, and foster genuine bonds between caregivers and seniors.
One of the best parts of our caregivers’ and franchisees’ day is being able to make a difference in someone’s life. We’ve all known a senior, whether a parent, grandparent, or family friend in need of special care, and we know how hard it can be for them when they don’t get the attention and care they need. Many seniors grow lonely in the absence of regular socialization, or struggle to simply perform daily tasks.
The presence of a caregiver can go a long way toward lifting a senior’s spirits and improving their quality of life. Providing personalized care is the foundation of Senior Helpers, and it’s what motivates our franchisees day in and day out.
Regardless of whether they actually have the time or expertise to dedicate to their loved one, many families are deeply involved in the caregiving process. Communicating with them, and making them feel included and informed, is essential to our mission. We pride ourselves on giving families peace of mind, and reassuring them that their loved ones are receiving the care they need. Our franchisees embrace the fact that they have the opportunity to make seniors feel safe and cared for, while also freeing up family members to live their own busy lives.
Like we always say, owning a home care franchise is more than just a business: it’s a great platform for getting involved in the broader community, participating in local health initiatives, and encouraging your employees to volunteer with local senior organizations. Our franchisees are excited by the prospect of educating their communities, and giving local families the information they need to navigate healthcare decisions. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and recovery risk management are among some of the topics often covered.
In addition to providing educational materials and being a helpful resource to the community, dedicated home care franchisees can also develop supportive and mutually-beneficial relationships with local care centers that serve the elderly. Some of our franchises partner with local councils on aging, as well as first responders, or sponsor local activities relating to national elder care needs, healthy aging initiatives, etc. In this way, many Senior Helpers franchises are not only businesses, but active, contributing members of the community.
