While there are many factors that go into selecting the franchise that’s right for you, including industry trends, profitability projections, hiring procedures, and the cost of the investment, Senior Helpers franchisees also tend to place a high value on running a business that helps people. Investing in a Senior Helpers in-home care franchise allows you to run your own business in a thriving industry, fill a vital gap in the market, and also play an active role in your community. A Senior Helpers in-home care franchise can be a great platform for helping not only clients and their families but also the community at large.
Owning a Senior Helpers franchise can be a great vehicle for getting involved in the community. You can participate in local health initiatives and encourage employees to volunteer with local senior organizations. As an in-home care franchisee, you could also choose to educate your community about the many facets of health and senior care, to help families better navigate healthcare decisions, especially when it comes to loved ones with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
In addition to providing educational materials and coaching to the community, an in-home care franchise can also be a resource for local groups that serve the elderly. Some of our franchises become partners for local councils on aging, or sponsor local activities relating to national elder care needs. In this way, your Senior Helpers franchise is not only a business but an active, contributing member of your local community and a springboard for giving back.
It’s a common misconception that to make helping others a main focal point of your career, you need to come from a service-oriented background, like being a first responder or being a local politician. However, some of our most dedicated, involved franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds totally unrelated to service or healthcare. You’d be surprised to see how transferable your skills can be.
Giving back to your local community with an in-home care franchise isn’t exclusive to those with certain backgrounds. It simply requires you to have the desire to make a tangible difference in people’s lives and the willingness to learn about, and adapt to, a new industry.
If you want to own a business that has a positive effect on the lives of seniors in your community, and become a valuable resource for local families, reach out to us today to take the first step toward having your own in-home care franchise.
