A recent study shows that over 12.8 million Americans rely on others for care. And of those 12.8 million, over 80% of people said that they preferred to remain in their homes. The senior population is set to expand to an unprecedented high by 2030, so the popularity of senior care franchising will also be an all-time high. Why not plan ahead and start now? You could be franchising a successful business in a few short years, especially since you know the demand will be present and growing.

Senior care franchises are often non-medical, typically offering meal preparation, light housekeeping, errand running, pet walking and personal care. That means that you don’t have to have medical-specific experience, just an inclination for caring for the elderly. Since it’s a home-based business, you can be your own boss and the initial investment is significantly less than others. You won’t have to worry about losing your job or being late, or conflicts with your co-workers. You can work for yourself while helping others.
