Home Care vs. Hospice: The Differences You Need to Know

Posted: 1/7/2020 08:00 AM by Interim Franchise

If you’re looking into healthcare franchise opportunities as a way of providing a valuable resource to your community, and making your living at the same time, we think you’re on the right track. However, you should know that not all healthcare investments provide you with the same advantages — some have more to offer than others. When you partner with Interim HealthCare, you’ll be able to choose from two distinct services to offer: you can opt to run a home care franchise, or a hospice franchise. Some of our multi-unit franchise owners even operate both! Let’s take a brief look at what they entail and the differences between the two.

Home Care 

Most seniors want to remain at home as they age, in an environment they know, surrounded by the comforts they’ve come to love. That’s why, when you consider healthcare franchise opportunities, you should make sure you choose one that delivers the kind of quality senior home care that Interim has come to be known for. When you franchise with us, you’ll be there to aid seniors and those who may need assistance maintain their dignity and independence by helping them with daily activities like shopping, light housekeeping, laundry, personal care, and more. You’ll also be able to provide them with the temporary services of paraprofessionals like registered nurses, nurses assistants, social workers, therapists, and others. These important resources will enable a very vulnerable population to continue living their lives the way they want to — safely and securely at home, with trusted regular help at their fingertips. Best of all, you’ll be able to do so under the powerful and respected Interim HealthCare brand name, one that carries with it over 50 years of experience and covers a full continuum of services.

Hospice Care

Hospice work is some of the most meaningful and important care out there, and sooner or later, most of us will benefit from it. That’s why we’re proud to offer it as an essential service, among the many we offer, because we know that if given the choice, many terminally-ill patients and their families prefer to live out their time together in the privacy and comfort of their own homes. An Interim HealthCare hospice franchise allows them to do so. As one of our franchisees, you’ll be licensed and certified as a hospice provider, and will have access to physicians, registered nurses, counselors, and more, to help families and their dying loved ones cope with unique physical and emotional needs during this challenging time. You’ll also be able to count on bereavement and spiritual care counselors, as well as volunteer coordinators, aides, and companions. 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 known for and proud of, allowing our franchisees to be part of one of the fastest-growing sectors of the healthcare market.
