Frequently Asked Questions About Our In-Home Care Franchise
Do I need health care or caregiving experience to open a Golden Heart franchise?
It would certainly be helpful, but it is not necessary. Our comprehensive training will teach you everything you need to know, and our franchise team will be available to help you along the way.
How much does it cost to open an in-home care franchise with Golden Heart?
The estimated total initial investment is between $49,325 and $80,650, including the $35,000 franchise fee. We also offer a few options to expand your investment.
How will I make money?
Clients will pay hourly for caregiver services. You’ll also offer assisted living placement services, along with supplemental staffing services to area hospitals and assisted living centers.
Will I personally provide caregiver services?
No, not usually. You will hire caregivers to visit clients’ homes. However, you will have the knowledge and responsibility to fill in as needed.
How will I find good caregivers?
We’ll show you how to build relationships with local schools, along with hiring vendors and portals, to find qualified candidates.
Is there a way to keep track of all my clients and caregivers?
You bet! We utilize purpose-built software called SMARTcare to help franchise owners keep everything organized.
Can I run this business from my home?
Yes, the Golden Heart Senior Care franchise opportunity gives you the chance to start up from your home provided you are permitted to do so under your state’s laws and regulations, though you may find moving to an office makes sense later.
I currently own a non-medical in-home care business. Can I become a Golden Heart Senior Care business?
Yes, and we offer a great deal for conversion franchise owners — no franchise fee! That makes the total initial investment only $10,750 to $26,500 for conversion franchises.
