Are You Financially Qualified?
If you want to start a home care business of any kind, you’ll need the right amount of capital on hand, especially in the early months of your business. Interim HealthCare franchisees should have a net worth of over $300,000 and liquid capital of between $100,000 and $250,000 for an in-home care franchise, or $297,000 and $348,500 for a hospice franchise. And although we welcome our franchisees to seek out third-party financing to help manage their new partnership, having great credit is important.
Are You Emotionally Intelligent?
Although you will not be the one who provides care to your clients, you still must be able to empathize with people and put yourself in others’ shoes. Being able to understand the kind of pain and suffering your clients and their families might have to endure will be critical in instilling a culture of care and dignity for your employees.
Are You Known for Your Patience?
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your Interim HealthCare franchise. Success takes many hours of hard work and dedication. Our owners have an advantage over their competitors because they’re patient. This quality allows them to weather short-term difficulties to realize long-term profit and professional growth.
If you said yes to the questions above, it might be time to take that important step and start a home care business with Interim HealthCare. Our franchisees are some of the best in the healthcare industry, and our name is synonymous with excellence and professionalism.
