Home Care vs. Hospice: What’s the Difference?

Posted: 7/15/2021 01:37 PM by Interim Franchise

Did you know that investing in a home care franchise opportunity is a great way of giving back to your community and making a living at the same time? Interim HealthCare franchisees are doing that every day in more and more communities across the country. But not all healthcare investments provide you with the same advantages — some have more to offer than others. Partnering with Interim HealthCare will allow you to choose from two distinct services to offer your community — you can choose to operate a home care franchise or a hospice franchise — or perhaps even both! Here, we’ll take a brief look at the differences between the two.

The Comforts of Home

It’s a fact: most seniors want to remain at home as they age, in an environment they know, surrounded by the comforts they’ve come to love. At Interim, we don’t think that’s too much to ask, especially when seniors and their families can rely on our trained professionals to help them do so!

Your Interim home care franchise will allow seniors who need assistance to maintain their dignity and independence by helping them with daily activities like shopping, light housekeeping, laundry, personal care, and more. You’ll also be a critical resource for the temporary services of paraprofessionals like registered nurses, nurses’ assistants, social workers, therapists, and others. Enabling a vulnerable segment of your community to continue living safely and securely at home is something to be proud of, especially when you can do so as part of the respected Interim HealthCare brand name. It’s a competitive advantage you’ll find comes into play, time and time again.

The Compassion of Hospice

When comparing home care vs. hospice care, most would agree that both are extremely invaluable services. But hospice work is truly some of the most meaningful and important care a person can provide. We’re proud to offer it as an essential service because we know that if given a choice, many terminally ill patients and their families prefer to live out their time together in the privacy and comfort of their own homes.

As an Interim franchise owner, you’ll be a licensed and certified hospice provider who has access to physicians, registered nurses, counselors, and more, to help families and their terminally ill loved ones cope during a uniquely challenging time. Bereavement and spiritual care counselors, as well as volunteer coordinators, aides, and companions, will round out your critical resources. Their presence helps to provide the quality care a terminally ill patient needs and that families appreciate.

Our full-spectrum hospice care is something we’re incredibly proud of, allowing our franchisees to provide their communities with a valuable and much-needed service.
