"We are the first home care network to partner with a pharmacy…it shows how Home Instead, Inc. is forward thinking and concerned with things like reducing hospital readmissions."
– Roy Wu, Franchise Owner, Walla Walla, WA
The senior in-home care industry has potential to be a booming business opportunity for the foreseeable future. The rapidly growing over-65 population will tell anyone that loud and clear. But we know there is so much more to success beyond industry potential. We take a closer look at the challenges facing our aging society and ask, "How can we be part of the solution?"
That keeps us striving to find new and innovative care solutions like Simple Meds℠, a pharmacy partnership unique to our franchise network that simplifies the medication management process for seniors and their families. It also creates opportunities to participate in organizations like the World Economic Forum, Global Coalition on Aging, and World Dementia Council to serve as thought leaders and advocates for the senior care industry. We aggressively fight for small business owners and advocate to keep home care affordable and accessible for seniors.
"It'll make you feel good at the end of the day to know that your Home Instead Senior Care franchise is doing good things in the community; you'll soon realize you're in the right business." —Jim L., Franchise Owner, Pennsylvania
Owning a Home Instead Senior Care franchise is more than just a great business opportunity. It's a higher calling. When our founders Paul and Lori Hogan began this business, they envisioned a future where all people could age with greater hope and success. You'll be part of our movement to change the face of aging by enhancing the lives of seniors and their families in your community.
In addition to providing relationship-based home care services, you'll be able to give back to your community through public education programs like Prevent Senior Hospitalizations®, free training resources like Alzheimer's Friendly Business® Training, and community outreach programs like Be a Santa to a Senior®.
"This is my team, this is my family." – Bob Maguire, Franchise Owner, Cheyenne, WY
While you can enjoy the independence of owning your own business and being your own boss, you'll do so in a very supportive environment. The level of support we offer to owners is unrivaled in any other franchise system. We have 150 passionate professionals at the Home Instead, Inc. Home Office eager to engage with owners and provide the support they need.
But the Home Office support is only half of it. The other half is the network of high-caliber owners you have surrounding you. We are passionately selective about who we award franchises to because we know it takes a special person who has the right mix of experience, drive and heart to own and operate a franchise to our high standards. Owners feel a sense of camaraderie with each other and connect often to exchange ideas and advice. We think you'll experience an encouraging and supportive culture here unlike anywhere else.
We know our proven business model works, so finding the right owner is very important to us. Before you begin questioning whether or not you might have the right background, relevant skills, or enough years of experience to become a Home Instead Senior Care® franchise owner, ask yourself this:
Why do I want to own a senior care business?
Above all, the ideal owner is someone who has the right intentions. If you have a sincere desire to work with seniors and a genuine passion for helping others, you're on the right track. We look for franchise owners who are driven by a passion to improve the quality of life for seniors and who put their compassion for others first.
When it comes to specific owner qualifications, we don't have a strict set of requirements for education or experience. Our franchisees come from many different walks of life and backgrounds. However, we believe that the strongest Home Instead Senor Care franchise owners share a distinct set of qualities and key skills, which include:
It's ok if you don't have prior business ownership experience. If you have the core qualities listed above and your heart is in the right place, we can help you out with the rest.
