At the moment, the nation and the world is grappling with COVID-19. As millions of people are under a ‘lockdown’ there may be questions you have if you considered a home care franchise.

One of the most pressing questions could be: Is it okay or even reasonable to think about starting a home care franchise now?

There couldn’t be a better time.

Let’s face it, millions of people across the country are struggling to navigate this ‘new normal.’ There are also dozens, possibly hundreds, and maybe even thousands of seniors in and around your community struggling to get through each day.

Home care is a valuable asset, not just for seniors, but for other adults who may require some level of care — for short-term or long-term — as they cope with various health issues.

A home care franchise provides an opportunity for entrepreneurial minded men and women to become business owners in a growing sector.

The number one job creator.

Even before the coronavirus hit, home care was the number one job creator in the country. It is expected that this trend will continue for at least another 10 or 15 years, and possibly longer than that.

Why? Because the baby boomer generation is retiring and that means the demographics of this country is shifting. Within the next decade or two, the population of men and women 65 and over will account for 20 percent of the entire nation.

The older people are, the more likely they will require healthcare and perhaps support at home. That’s where home care becomes integral.

Right now, though, things are tough.

There are many other men and women who need assistance right now and home care can provide it. While there are certainly numerous caregivers who have backed away from the job because of their fears over the coronavirus, there is a growing list of aging seniors and disabled adults who need in-home care support services.

A home care agency provides compassionate, dedicated men and women the opportunity to serve those in need right now.

If you have a desire to become a business owner, are compassionate about helping people, and home care is where you want to serve, then there really is no better time than now to get invested in a franchise.

It is certainly not for the faint of heart, but if you have solid work ethics and a desire to succeed, a right home care company could be the best investment you make for your future.
