SENIOR HOME CARE
The Baby Boomer Generation
Thanks to the baby boomer generation born in the late 1940s and 1950s the number of Senior citizens is growing very fast. As the boomer population reaches age 65, the Senior population is projected to reach 83.7 million in the US alone almost double the estimated in 2012 and approximately 20% of the total US population. Roughly 10,000 people will turn 65 every day for the next 25 years!
This increasing elderly population has and will necessitate more Senior healthcare. Possible difficulties in the industry include finding qualified caregivers both in hospitals and for in home care. Home Health Care is the primary franchising opportunity within the Senior care industry.
Being part of a franchise system in this industry provides access to marketing, technology to manage your business, ongoing training and support, caregiver retention and referrals from happy clients. A good Home Health Care franchise can also provide many additional medical and non-medical services for families such as post-surgery care and care for adults and children with developing disabilities.
