A Touching Hearts at Home franchise business is a perfect second career for New Jersey franchisee George Efstatos
A career sales and business development professional, George Efstatos left the corporate world to become a home care franchise owner. In 2013, he opened a Touching Hearts at Home franchise in Northfield, New Jersey.
Immediately drawn to the appeal of starting a new business, George said he was considering other options when he found Touching Hearts.
“I got tired of living out of airplanes,” George says of his former career, “I wanted something more stable. I wanted to be home more often, as my kids are getting older, and so forth. Plus, owning my own business was something I’ve always talked about and thought about doing.
“The flexibility to do it my way was really important to me,” says George. “I did some research in terms of which agencies would be a best fit. There was a lot of flexibility with Touching Hearts’ model. I think part of it was because Touching Hearts focuses on companionship, which is the area I want to be in.”
Helping real people
Touching Hearts at Home has been helping aging seniors stay in their homes since 2007. “People aren’t calling us because they need a maid, a butler, or anything like that,” says George. “They have a real issue, whether it’s Alzheimer’s, dementia, fall risk, heart conditions. These people need real help, and the satisfaction of helping them is rewarding.”
Touching Hearts at Home is the senior home care franchise with a passion for serving clients. We enrich their lives with quality care. We provide companion care and assistance to seniors who need help with non-medical, daily tasks of living, such as meal planning, grocery shopping, laundry or light housekeeping.
Giving our clients peace of mind is one of the many rewards of owning a Touching Hearts at Home franchise. We ensure the highest quality of life, often at our clients’ greatest time of need.
For George, the combination of the freedom and flexibility of owning his own business while helping others makes for a meaningful career — one that he looks forward to every day.
If you’re like George — contemplating a second career or looking for rewarding work that gives you work-life balance and the ability to set your own schedule — then Touching Hearts may be perfect for you.
