The Senior Care Industry

D04A8541-header

If you are considering starting a senior care franchise, it’s important to that you learn more about the industry as well as the market potential.  Senior home care services can cover a wide range of needs, from homemaking and companionship to medication reminders. At Homewatch CareGivers, these services also include personal care, which might involve helping with bathing, dressing, and grooming. Personal care is more hands-on than companion care, and is often for individuals recovering from a procedure or illness, or for people living with a chronic illness. Homewatch CareGivers’ personal and companion care services focus on the client, regardless of age or diagnosis, with a customized care plan that addresses the needs and preferences of the individual as well as his or her living situation.

Home Care Industry Statistics

More people are choosing to remain in their homes as they age. Various studies on aging, including a 2009 AARP study, have found that up to 89% of seniors want to live in their own homes as long as possible. The senior population has become the fastest growing segment in the United States; thus, the need for home care businesses will continue to increase.
