85% of Senior Retirees Prefer to Receive Care from Their Own Home

According to a new study conducted by Merrill Lynch and Age Wave, 85% of senior retirees age 50 and over say that they prefer to receive care from their homes, if they need long-term help. 10% of seniors prefer assisted living communities, while only 4% of seniors said that they would prefer to receive care in the home of a family member.

Data also shows that residents of nursing homes have declined over the past decade, while seniors receiving care from their homes or choosing assisted living communities have significantly increased.

Because about 3/4 of people over the age of 85 have trouble completing daily tasks and activities, more seniors in the U.S are utilizing the benefits of professional in-home care services from companies like Always Best Care.

In fact, more than half of seniors age 75 and older are living alone, making non-medical home care beneficial for both health and social needs, as caregivers are able to offer companionship that seniors would otherwise not have.

The demand for trusted senior care services is increasing, as is the need for motivated professionals to open home care businesses. To learn more about opening a senior care franchise with Always Best Care, don’t hesitate to download your very own copy of our FREE franchising eBook today!

Five Great Reasons to Select Always Best Care

1)     Territory protection with greater opportunity!  What drives growth in the senior care industry are relationships with the many referral sources within each franchisee’s territory. The senior citizens receiving care, however, may live anywhere, not exclusively within the territory. As a result, Always Best Care franchises may serve customers both inside and outside of their defined territories, as they are not limited to serving clients only within a protected territory.

2)    Additional revenue stream from assisted living finder and referral services! Always Best Care franchisees can drive revenue while building local credibility and visibility with all referral sources – even before obtaining a home care license. This added service provided by Always Best Care franchisees creates additional revenue from the same referral sources. Plus – it’s free to our clients; all fees are paid by assisted living communities. Importantly, many families who begin as home care referrals later decide to move into an assisted living community. A home care franchise built around only one or the other service only captures a limited share of market.

3)    Expand the franchise to provide skilled home care when the time is right! Providing skilled nursing services to customers and developing the skilled revenue stream is a key competitive advantage to capture a greater share of market. At Always Best Care, we know this is a big step and we do not ask our franchisees to apply for skilled service licenses until they have achieved approximately $1million in annual billing from their non-skilled business. (This does not imply a guarantee that franchisees will attain specific sales volume.)

4)    Local training and ongoing support – a big advantage for franchisees! Always Best Care provides a powerful combination of both national and local support. Training includes how to use sales performance metrics, marketing, national accounts, turnkey operating technology, system-wide benchmarking and third party customer satisfaction support. Local support comes from Area Representatives who provide ongoing strategic planning, mentoring, communications and business building expertise with a vested interest in the franchisees’ success. If no Area Representative is present in proximity to a franchisee’s territory, this function is fulfilled by representatives from the field support office.

5)    Award-winning marketing and advertising!  Over the past few years, Always Best Care has been honored with more awards for marketing and advertising excellence than any other senior care franchise system in the United States or Canada.  With always Best Care’s exclusive ABC PR Journal, franchisees can launch and sustain a weekly mass email marketing campaign on a local level – week after week after week – with a unique combination of newsletters, email blasts, videos, feature articles and press releases, all at no cost to the franchisee!

Forbes: Senior Care Industry Top Ranked as Best Franchise Opportunity in 2014

Over the last 60 years, the landscape of the franchise world has grown and evolved to an incredible degree. From franchise organizations offering pressure-washing and lawn care to those offering tax return preparation and even dog walking, it’s safe to say that if you have a need, there’s a franchise nearby that can provide that service for you.

Of all the different franchise models, one in particular is growing at an exponential rate: the senior care franchise industry. There were only 13 home care franchise brands in the year 2000, and that number has grown to 56 in-home care companies in 2014 according to industry research firm FRANdata.

Entrepreneurial men and woman that own home care franchises are more successful than ever before, and especially so for those who own an Always Best Care franchise. Revenue for ABC franchise owners jumped from $9,557,240 in 2010 to $66,010,543 in 2013 (Source: 2009-2014 Franchise Disclosure Documents).

Because in-home care franchises like Always Best Care have a low overhead model, generate potentially high revenues, and provide services to a rapidly growing demographic, the home care franchise industry is a very popular one. Always Best Care, in particular, offers franchise owners the benefit of a powerful combination of corporate training and field representatives who are invested in franchise owner success, as well as award-winning marketing solutions to grow their business.
