The senior care industry is booming because the senior population is expanding and is expected to grow faster than any other age group. According to the United Nations Population Fund and HelpAge International, the number of people over the 60 will double by 2050. This means that there will be an increased need for senior care services. If you want to get your piece of the booming senior care industry, then the Home Instead franchise could be for you. It was founded in Omaha, Nebraska, by Paul and Lori Logan. The franchise provides nonmedical services to seniors who can manage their physical needs but just need assistance with some tasks, such as light housework, to stay in their homes. Since franchising in 1995, the brand has grown to over 1,100 across the U.S., Canada, and the world. It is a great franchise opportunity for prospective franchise owners because you don't need prior senior care experience or high educational credentials.
In terms of support and training, franchise owners can expect a week-long training course at the corporate headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska. A business advisory team will also give you guidance and advice during your tenure as a business owner. You will also have access to industry resources, including web-based training for you and your staff. The ideal franchise owner has a genuine interest in working with seniors and has a passion or improving their quality of life. If this sounds like you, then the Home Instead senior care franchise could be for you.
