After retiring from a long and successful career in the toy industry, Bob Nations decided to feed his entrepreneurial spirit and take on a new business venture. At the same time, Nations and his family were forced to put his grandmother, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, into a nursing home due to the lack of suitable in-home care options. His grandmother sadly passed away six months later and Nations decided to open a Senior Helpers franchise in her honor. Since then, Nations has been providing his community with the first-rate senior care that he once could not find and has built his business into one of Senior Helpers top franchises.
“The one thing I wasn’t aware of when I started was how great and rewarding my job can be. It’s amazing the impact we have on people’s lives each and every day.”
Being an entrepreneur at heart, after retirement I began looking for new business opportunities. At this time, my grandmother, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, fell and broke her hip. Due to a lack in adequate in-home care options I was forced to move her into a nursing home where she passed away just six short months later. The death served as a beacon to me, shortly thereafter, I decided to invest in a home care franchise in her honor. I sought senior care franchises that offered renowned dementia care, excellent coaching programs and those with proven business models in place.
I quickly set three goals for this new business; (I) to be the best, not the biggest, (II) be in the top 10% of all Senior Helpers franchises and (III) give back to the community.
Beyond monetary success, my favorite part of being a Senior Helpers franchisee has been the ability to give to the community what was once unavailable to me – a quality in-home care choice that gives families peace of mind.
