If you’re considering getting involved with a senior care franchise, it’s important to ask yourself why. Senior Helpers franchisees are motivated to join our franchise family for a wide number of reasons, and while there is no best motivation, it’s important to have one! The caregiving business requires passionate care and commitment, something that is not possible without a clear purpose in mind when you sign on.
Fortunately, Senior Helpers has a lot of compelling reasons to choose from, and they appeal to all kinds of people. For the compassionate “healer” personalities, senior care franchises provide tremendous opportunities to give back. For the number-crunching entrepreneur, there is no greater market opportunity to leverage. In fact, USA Today recently named the senior care industry as one of the fastest-growing in America.
In today’s post, we review some of the Senior Helpers media mentions, explaining exactly why authors, celebrities, and media outlets agree that getting involved in homecare is one of the most exciting opportunities on the market!
The American population is changing – aging, that is – and it’s having a tremendous influence on the growth of our job market. Today, the economy is at least partially recovered from the recessions of the past decade. This year, USA Today reported that over 1.6 million jobs were added in our country. Furthermore, the BLS estimates that employment will continue to climb 11% by 2022.
So what does that have to do with senior care franchises? The majority of this employment growth is projected to occur within the senior care industry. 1 in 5 Americans will be over the age of 65 by 2020, and economists believe this will put a huge demand on health care services. Health support occupations are expected to grow by 28% by 2022, with 6 of the top 10 jobs being in the healthcare sector. With over 90% of survey respondents stating that they’d prefer to “age in place” with caregivers treating them in-home, this presents a huge opportunity for senior care franchise owners.
A 2014 article by Entrepreneur.com shared details of Celebrity Apprentice winner Leeza Gibbon’s recent entry into the Senior Helpers system. The article contained some exciting nuggets of information for opportunistic entrepreneurs.
Senior Helpers was described as being “poised for swift growth.” The article highlighted the franchise system’s revenue jump from $27-million to $189 million, noting that the revenue per unit had increased by more than 380% in the same period. The author concluded that there was perhaps no better time for entrepreneurs to get involved in the senior care market.

Most people have the wrong idea of what it takes to get involved with a senior care franchise. You don’t need a background in healthcare, and you don’t need any former business ownership experience. If you’re coachable and serious about senior care, our training and support can cover the rest.
