One key differentiator of our healthcare franchise opportunity is that we allow franchisees to open senior home care or hospice care franchises. This gives them the flexibility to best serve the needs of their communities while also being able to grow their business in the way they see fit. Hospices offer unique and in-demand services and go hand-in-hand with the home care side of our business. Here, we’ll share some interesting facts about hospices and how they fit into our healthcare franchise opportunity.
1: The Philosophy Behind Hospice Care
Dame Cicely Saunders is widely credited with developing the idea of modern hospice care in the 1960s. Before her work, there wasn’t much of a philosophy on how to best care for terminally ill patients. She pioneered the idea that they should live in a home-like environment that focused on making them comfortable and giving them the opportunity to live out their days in a way that was best-suited to their unique needs and desires.
That’s the philosophy we hold today at Interim HealthCare. We provide families with peace of mind during the difficult process of helping a terminally ill loved one. This makes our healthcare franchise opportunity ideal for people who want to make a meaningful difference in the lives of their community members.
2: Demand for Hospice Care is Growing
The hospice care industry is currently valued at $28 billion and is expected to grow at 9% per year through 2026. This rapid growth is a reflection of how in-demand hospice care services are. As the elderly population rises, more families are finding themselves in need of a safe and comfortable environment where their loved ones can live with the care they need. Our healthcare franchise opportunity allows newcomers to the industry to learn how to provide that care to the people in their communities.
3: Interim HealthCare’s Franchise Opportunities Go Hand-in-Hand
You might be wondering whether you should opt to open a senior home care franchise or a hospice franchise with Interim HealthCare. The truth is, there are many benefits to opening at least one of each.
When you run a senior home care franchise, your clients will include seniors who need comprehensive care and those who could use just a little extra help around the house. Should any of these clients develop a terminal illness, transitioning them to an Interim HealthCare hospice franchise is a logical and seamless process for family members and loved ones to manage. Furthermore, operating both a hospice care and senior home care franchise allows you to help as many seniors as possible in your community.
These are just a few interesting facts about the hospice healthcare franchise opportunity we have to offer. Contact us today to learn what it will take to open an Interim HealthCare hospice franchise in your community.
