Before you invest in a senior care business, you need to ask yourself plenty of questions. It’s called due diligence, and it doesn’t just require you to look at numbers and statistics before you make any decision, although that is important. There are a number of other considerations you should make before you ultimately open an Interim franchise. Let’s look at three of them.
Is it Right for Me?
Choosing to open an Interim franchise is a terrific way to make a difference in the lives of people in your community and make a living at the same time. But, it’s not for everyone. While it’s true that we don’t require potential franchisees to have a background in a health field, we do look for certain personality traits that might make them ideal candidates. These include:
- Compassion and integrity
- A desire to contribute to the health and happiness of others
- A desire to be at the forefront of a high-growth industry
- A desire to control the direction of your career
- A desire to connect with people and establish long-term relationships with them
If this sounds like you, then we think you should invest in a senior care business feeling confident about your abilities and commitment.
How Robust is the Senior Care Industry?
At Interim HealthCare, we are happy to report that both the home care and hospice industries are robust and growing. There are several reasons for this: our population is aging and people are living longer, thanks to medical advances, and many of these older citizens are requiring home care. Moreover, seniors want to age at home, surrounded by the environments, people, and things they know and love. Additionally, with respect to hospice care, more and more families value a holistic team approach to delivering it, one that includes the involvement of experts in pain management, symptom relief, and grief and spiritual counseling.
The terminally-ill and their families appreciate this all-encompassing approach, contributing to the continued growth of the senior care industry, and when you invest in a senior care business with us, you’ll be part of that growth, too.
How Important is a Brand Name?
This question is perhaps one of the most important you can ask before making any decision about where and with whom to invest. The history, track record, and reputation of a franchise brand is critical to not only the brand as a whole, but to the individual franchisees, and when you open an Interim franchise, you’ll quickly realize this. We’ve been delivering high-quality senior care for over 50 years, and in that time, have established ourselves as a leader in the industry. Many hundreds of communities across the country already benefit from our services, and we are very often the first brand name that comes to mind when families are researching options and comparing companies. This unparalleled brand recognition and respected position in the industry is something all our franchisees benefit from.
