Available Elder Care Franchise Opportunity in Illinois
Are you looking into owning a franchise? If so, there has never been a better time to pursue an elder care franchise opportunity. As the population continues to age and salaries remain somewhat stagnant, an elder care franchise provides the opportunity to address a pressing need in a profitable field.
Visiting Angels® is a nationally recognized home care provider serving seniors and families across the country. We currently have hundreds of franchises from state to state, each of which contributes to our reputation for top-quality care.
While the need for affordable elder care options is a national issue, there are some areas that are seeing a higher demand than others. In this post, we’ll explore our promising franchise opportunities available in Illinois.
Find Your Elder Care Opportunity in Chicagoland
Interested in opening an elder care franchise in the Chicagoland area? Visiting Angels currently has the following locations available:
Chicago,the largest city in the Midwest, serves home to 2,693,976 people as of the last U.S. census. Of that number, 12.4% are aged 65 and older.
These figures are already promising for prospective elder care franchise owners. Additionally, a 2019 report produced by the Chicago Department of Public Health shed more light on what makes this city so appealing.
According to the city’s databook on older adult health in Chicago, the elderly population is on the rise, both in number and in the percentage of the overall population. In addition, at least 25% of older adults are over the age of 80, and may therefore need more substantial care in the years to come.
Elmhurst is located just west of Chicago and has 46,746 residents. It also has a higher percentage of older adults, accounting for 15.2% of the population. The population of Elmhurst is steadily rising, with a 5.9% increase since 2010.
At Visiting Angels, we offer expansive protected territories for our franchise locations. This elder care franchise opportunity in Elmhurst also includes access to the following markets:
