Few industries are more rewarding than senior care, but you may be wondering: is it worth the investment? When will I turn a profit? What kind of support will I get? Senior care is an attractive business opportunity because everyone has had a loved one in need of special care, or knows a senior who could benefit from in-home care. The market for senior care is broad and ever-expanding, but the landscape of the healthcare industry can still seem scary to a prospective franchisee with little prior experience. You want to make sure your investment in a senior care franchise is well-placed, and to do that, you need a comprehensive understanding of the industry and the ways in which Senior Helpers supports its franchisees.
