Home Care Franchise in Louisiana
Good weather and low cost of living are two things that rank high for many retirees when looking for a retirement destination. Louisiana has both. While the state draws millions of visitors from all over the world, it doesn’t get as much attention as a potential retirement destination.
The fact that Louisiana is underrated bodes well for retirees. The cost of living is 11% lower than the national average, making the state ideal for those with fixed income. The median home price just hovers around $127,000, well below the price of homes in the typical Sun Belt states or Florida. Cities like Covington and Mandeville have been ranked as one of the best places to retire in Louisiana.
With year-round warm weather, low cost of living, good food and great culture, it won’t be long until Louisiana is discovered and sought after by retirees on a tight budget. Being a ComForCare franchisee in Louisiana will put you in a good position to meet the growing demands of in home care for seniors.
