If you own a home healthcare business, it’s easy to see that it’s time to franchise your business. The number of Americans aged 65 years or older was last estimated at over 39.6 million in 2009, and that demographic is expected to reach 72.1 million by 2030. That means that seniors will comprise almost 20% of the population, a shift that will require the business world to keep up in areas like housing, medicine, and home healthcare. (U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Administration on Aging)
As medical science progresses to allow us longer lives and the population ages, there will be more demand for both home care and home healthcare services. The types of businesses that will become increasingly in demand are many and varied, including:
- Medical staffing-Private nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists, and other healthcare positions
- Hospice care- Nurses, counselors, pain management experts, and physicians
- Home care- Maid services, meal preparation or delivery, companionship and adult day services
