When most people think of senior care, they think of institutional nursing homes or assisted living facilities. There’s a growing segment of the senior care industry allowing seniors to stay in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes for as long as possible. Non-medical, in-home senior care helps prolong seniors’ health and longevity and is ultimately a comfort and savings to family members. When our clients opt for the non-medical, in-home senior care services Touching Hearts at Home provides, they are choosing to not only maintain, but often increase the quality of life for their aging loved ones.

Our franchise owners are not required to have any formal medical training prior to ownership. Because we deliver strictly non-medical services, there is no requirement for professional medical personnel on staff. We provide extensive training programs designed to help you train, manage, and retain the highest quality licensed, bonded, and insured caregivers. They are trained to help older adults manage their living spaces by providing non-medical, person-centered, in-home services, for a few hours a day or 24 hours, seven days a week. During the recent pandemic, for example, our caregivers were considered essential workers and were part of the limited team of workers allowed to work with the elderly and disabled.

“It’s a great time to invest in a Touching Hearts at Home franchise,” says Scott Kummel, director of franchise sales. “Home care is on the horizon and is a popular option for individuals. The reason people get into this line of business is they want to make a difference. You are making a difference in the lives of the seniors you provide care for, as well as their families. It is a paramount option versus institutionalized care.”

Touching Hearts caregivers are like family

A Touching Hearts team is often the “first in” as loved ones make care plans for their senior family members. Touching Hearts at Home caregivers help seniors with basic, non-medical tasks, which help keep them out of nursing homes and living in their own homes independently for as long as possible. Many of our relationships with clients span several years, even decades, making caregivers more like family members than service providers. Touching Hearts at Home Caregivers offer companionship and homemaking services designed to bring quality of life. It’s truly a fulfilling career for our franchise owners, who have given peace of mind to thousands of families and added years to thousands of seniors’ lives.
