Home Care Franchise in Kansas
“There’s no place like home,” said Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. She was, of course, referring to Kansas.
At a first glance, Kansas doesn’t spark as the ideal retirement location. But “ideals” are different for each person. For someone looking for an economical option, Florida and the Sun Belt states are out of the question. Kansas does have its pricey spots, but overall, the state’s cost of living is 12% below average and the median home only costs around $111,000.
With over 250 lakes and 10,000 miles of rivers and streams, Kansas offers plenty for fishing and boating enthusiasts. The hunting culture is generous. The state also reduced its top income tax rate to 4.9%, making it just below average for the nation. For retirees looking to economize, there’s no better place.
So it wouldn’t be a big surprise for out-of-state retirees to come to Kansas as an alternative to more popular, but expensive locations. And the state is battling its own aging population.
Being a ComForCare franchisee in Kansas would allow you to help these seniors transition into retirement better, in their own homes.
Population Projection in Kansas
The population growth in Kansas has mostly been in line with the national average, if a bit slower. The U.S. Census Bureau projects the overall population in Kansas will increase by approximately 252,000 people by 2030. Of this, about 90% (237,000 people) will occur in the over-65 category.
Kansas is wide open, being the 40th most populated state out of 50 states. Most of the state is rural, with great distances to find services. This is an inconvenience but also could be an opportunity for home care professionals.
As a ComForCare franchisee in Kansas, you can arrange care for the elderly with their shopping, light housekeeping, driving to appointments, and provide companionship.
