The decision to strike out on your own and become a business owner should never be taken lightly. There are many factors that can lead up to and influence your decisions. Many entrepreneurs opt to join a franchise rather than opening up a new business on their own. The franchise environment offers many benefits and provides valuable support and guidance as you begin the journey of becoming a business owner.
Today, one of the most popular franchise opportunities is in the home care industry. Home care franchise locations, like Visiting Angels, provide at home care services to seniors and the disabled. As the baby boomer generation ages, the need for home care services continues to grow opening up the market for franchise locations across the country. Let’s consider some of the reasons why owning a home care franchise is a good investment.
Home Care Needs Continue to Grow
Every day more baby boomers turn 65. As the percentage of seniors in the U.S. population continues to grow, the need for at home care services also increases. With approximately 8,000 people reaching age 65 each day, the need for qualified at home care is expanding at a record pace. By 2030, census data projects there will be approximately 72 million seniors in the U.S. With 80% of seniors having at least one chronic care condition, it is important they have access to the care that makes independent living possible.
Home Care Franchise Owners Impact Communities
One of the great joys of owning a Visiting Angels franchise is that you can have a positive impact on your community.
