Senior Care Franchise Opportunity: Ames IA
Over the next several years, Ames IA is projected to see major growth in the need for at home senior care services. Yet the market for senior care services in Ames remains wide open, offering plenty of opportunity for new senior care providers to get a foothold in the local community. This combination of market factors has made Ames one of the most promising senior care franchise opportunities currently available at Visiting Angels®.
Looking for a senior care franchise opportunity in the Ames metro area? If you have the people-first mindset that senior care demands and the entrepreneurial spirit needed to succeed as a franchisee, you could be the perfect fit for a Visiting Angels franchise in Ames.
Why a Senior Care Franchise in Ames IA?
At Visiting Angels, we believe that Ames IA has unique potential as a senior care franchise opportunity. The Ames metro area is currently underserved in the field of senior care, and the region lacks an established market leader in the field of home care services. The market is split between smaller providers and newer agencies, leaving plenty of room for new business.
One reason for this is the city’s demographics. As a college town, Ames has a smaller share of seniors than other communities. Right now, only 9% of the city’s residents are above the age of 65, well below the national average of 14.9%. But over the next 10 to 15 years, elderly population growth in Ames is projected to outpace growth across the rest of the county. That’s because Ames’s population of citizens between the ages of 50 and 64 — the very people who will reach retirement age over the next 15 years — is 43% higher than its current population of seniors.
This combination of market opportunity and projected growth makes Ames a high-potential opportunity for new senior care agencies. The question, then, is who will seize this opportunity?
