Why In-Home Care is Set for Growth Post-Pandemic
In-home care is going to become more in demand as families look to keep loved ones out of assisted living homes for longer
For the millions of families caring for their aging loved ones during the coronavirus outbreak, this has been an immensely stressful time as seniors are most susceptible to the virus. However, with millions of Americans practicing social distancing at home, seniors can remain safe and still receive the care they need.
Whenever society goes through a common and major experience such as the recent crisis, some things change. One change that will create an even bigger demand for in-home care is that families will want to keep at-risk seniors at home longer and do as much as they can to avoid traditional paths to assisted living. The common perception is that people are simply safer at home.
For entrepreneurs looking to own a business that allows them to help and serve others, no matter the economic climate, Touching Hearts at Home is the perfect fit and we’re in a great place to serve this growing need in many communities.
Founded in 1996, Touching Hearts at Home is a non-medical in-home senior care franchise that works to meet the needs of our nation’s consistently aging senior population. We provide our clients with a myriad of services including companionship, light housekeeping, meal preparation, household chores, transportation services, medication services, house monitoring and Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
Moreover, senior care businesses have been deemed essential, which means that they are allowed to stay open during the outbreak. For Touching Hearts at Home franchise owners, this not only means surviving an economic downturn, but also continuing to do the work that families rely on us to do: take care of their loved ones.
Ultimately, owning a Touching Hearts franchise is a best-bet investment. Our unique franchise opportunity is easier to operate compared with other home-care businesses because we provide non-medical support, and no prior medical training is required for our franchisees or their employees. The best part? We are one of the most affordable business opportunities with startup costs ranging from $52,900 to $75,600 for the first six months of business. These costs cover office space and equipment, insurance, advertising and marketing along with miscellaneous business expenses.
Additionally, as a Touching Hearts at Home franchise owner, you will have access to world-class training and support. From the moment your franchise agreement is signed, our in-home senior care franchise will work to ensure your business gets up and running and thrives over the long term.
