ComForCare Franchisees Capitalize on Growing Need for In-Home Care Services
Leading senior care franchise helps seniors age in place with wide-ranging services that adapt to changing client needs
America is aging and our senior friends and loved ones want to stay home as long as possible as they grow older. In fact, the AARP reports that 90 percent of seniors want to remain in their homes as they age, a desire that is fueling the demand for in-home care services like those provided by ComForCare.
ComForCare in-home care franchise stands out in the booming $300 billion senior care industry, thanks to personalized care, proprietary programs such as DementiaWise® and a 10-step hiring process that ensures our caregivers are among the very best in the industry.
“I really didn’t know anything about the need for our services before I became a franchisee,” says Ajay Seghal, owner of a ComForCare franchise in Sterling Heights, Michigan. “Prior to joining ComForCare, I knew about home aides, but I thought it was mainly through Medicare or other governmental programs. What ComForCare provides is really meeting a much bigger need than most people realize.”
The need for in-home senior care continues to rise
For ComForCare franchisees, there will never be a diminishing number of families to help. Demand for senior care services already is booming and will continue to rise. About 10,000 people turn 65 every day, and by 2030 the number of people in America age 65 and older will hit 70 million, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
ComForCare franchisees often don’t realize how large the demand is for in-home senior care services until they launch their businesses in their communities. This is exactly what happened to Sehgal, who had no experience in senior care before he opened his business four years ago. That’s another great benefit to choosing to invest in ComForCare — you don’t need experience in the senior care industry to thrive in this business. Our many years of experience in this space mean you will have exceptional ongoing training and support to help you take your passion for helping others and apply it to a business you love.
Not only is America’s senior population growing, but they are avoiding assisted-living and nursing home care as long as possible. According to a recent USA Today poll, 43% of 45 to 65-year-olds say they anticipate staying in their current residences throughout retirement. And when seniors get sick and are hospitalized, hospitals are discharging patients more quickly, with the average length of stay now being 4.6 days, down from 7.3 days in 1980. This means, even after rehab, that many people return home in need of ongoing in-home care services such as those provided by ComForCare.
ComForCare is a successful, multifaceted business that offers peace of mind and improved quality of life for senior citizens and their families through support centered on life’s everyday tasks, and also through exciting and innovative programs.
ComForCare’s other differentiators include in-home nurse assessments, customized care plan development and ongoing evaluation to anticipate and plan for changes, all based on the client’s interests, hobbies, skills and abilities that provide joy and purpose in their life.
