As our many courageous veterans begin returning home ready to settle back into their normal lives, they are re-entering the workforce and seeking new opportunities for the future. Veterans possess a unique skill set and a passion to serve. A senior care franchise is a lucrative opportunity for returning veterans with the desire to own their own business, who love helping others and have access to start-up funding.
There’s an old saying about franchising – “In franchising you’re in business for yourself, but you’re never in business by yourself.” A senior care franchise is a great opportunity for returning veterans to use their skills to build a company with a proven business model, backed by a team ready to help them get started and support them as they grow.
Let’s look at some of the advantages that a senior care franchise offers returning veterans.
The Benefits of Buying A Franchise
For returning veterans looking to start a business, franchising offers several important benefits. A good franchise will have a proven track record, a developed business plan and a proven business model. That means spending less start-up time than building a business from scratch. A franchise allows you to begin making money when you open your doors.
Along with the training benefits of owning a franchise, veterans possess unique traits that make them strong candidates, these include:
Their training for the military prepared them to receive orders and execute them precisely. Often under trying circumstances. With this level of focus, and the roadmap and plan of executions a franchise provides, they are the perfect candidates for success!
They have proven their care for our country, and with a senior care franchise, they can extend their caring to our countries senior citizens, many of whom have also served. It’s a wonderful way to give back to their community.
Veterans Have Resource Available
Thanks to their dedicated service, veterans have plenty of resources to obtain the start-up funding needed to purchase a home healthcare franchise.
Owning a senior care franchise is a great way to lower the risks of starting a new business. With a proven business plan, a recognized and developed brand, marketing assistance, and the training a skill veterans already possess, the risks of starting a business can be significantly lowered.
Why A Senior Care Franchise Is A Great Choice
The population of seniors in American is growing. Also, they want to remain at home. An in-home senior care franchise is perfectly positioned to take advantage of this growing market.
Baby boomers are entering their golden years. In the coming decade there will be a growing need for home health care. Today’s retirees are more independent than the generations that came before them. They are choosing to remain in their homes as long as possible rather than living out their years in a retirement community.
Now is the perfect time to open a senior care franchise in your community. Home health care is currently a 93 billion dollar industry and is growing. Studies have shown that the number of Americans over 65 will double by 2050. In addition, 66% of them will need long-term care in their lifetime. A senior care franchise is a solid business with a future of growth ahead.
Veterans in the Community
Another benefit for returning veterans is that, while a background in health care is definitely an asset, a formal medical background is not necessary. The skills they possess from past experiences in the service, and a desire to help others, is all that needed to get started. It’s also a business that gives you the freedom to interact with your community. You’ll meet people from all walks of life in all types of environments at home, in the office, at medical facilities, multiple networking events and at the VA Hospitals and VFW posts in your community.
A senior care business is a business with a heart. It offers franchisees the ability to really make a difference in people’s lives. A veteran has spent a career servicing our country. A senior care franchise means working with care-givers, clients and their families to help make their lives better. You will gain much more than a paycheck. You will help to make a difference and positively impact people in your community.
If you want to start a business that can make a positive difference in people’s lives, help enrich your community and support your family through your hard work, consider a senior care franchise.
