The Growing Demand for Senior Care
As you consider franchising in the senior care industry, it is important to consider both where the industry is and where it is going. Luckily, the demand for senior care is growing. And industry experts are expecting the growth to continue for many years to come. Read on to find out why the demand for senior care is increasing and how you can help meet those needs in your own community by franchising with Always Best Care.
The Population is Aging
In as little as 10 years, adults 65 and older are expected to comprise 20% of the American population. This increase in senior citizens is often called the “Silver Tsunami” and Always Best Care has the resources and systems to meet the needs of an aging population.
As people age, there are certain activities and household tasks that get harder to perform. But we understand that these few tasks aren’t reason enough for seniors to abandon their homes and the lives they’ve built within them. Always Best Care helps clients continue to live their lives at home with dignity. You have the opportunity to meet the growing needs of seniors in your own community and capitalize on the changing American demographics.
There are 40.4 Million Unpaid Caregivers
We know these seniors need care. That’s why more than 40 million unpaid caregivers tend to the needs of their parents, grandparents and other loved ones. But thanks to changing trends that include Americans living longer and adults waiting longer to have children, millions of these caregivers are a part of what’s called the “sandwich generation.”
This term refers to those who are caregivers for both seniors and children simultaneously. And with commitments like work, marriages and maintaining homes, those in the sandwich can be stressed and stretched thin. This is why your community needs an Always Best Care franchise.
We make sure that seniors are getting the top notch, affordable care they need while being able to enjoy their loved ones—instead of depending on them. Always Best Care’s knowledgeable franchisees and qualified caregivers provide both compassionate care and peace of mind.
11.3 Million Seniors Live Alone
Millions of seniors live alone and love the independence it provides. But that doesn’t mean they don’t need assistance or companionship. Our clients need help with medication compliance, household tasks, grocery shopping, hygiene and a myriad of other services we offer. Some of our franchise locations are even certified to handle medical tasks like changing bandages or administering medication.
Because home care agencies like Always Best Care exist, seniors can stay in their homes longer with comfort and dignity even if they do live alone. If, or when, that is no longer a possibility, our home care franchise can also help clients and their families find the assisted living facility that meets their needs. When you franchise with Always Best Care, you are helping seniors maintain their independence and lifestyle.
