One of the fastest-growing segments of business today is the assisted living franchise opportunities that abound across the country. The reason for that growth shows more about its reason than only statistics.
Did you know the largest generation of living Americans is the Baby Boomers? These people, who are between 57 and 75 years old, total 69.6 million. These are your grandparents, who are now retired and potentially needing help. Many of them can still live productive lives, but because of illness, fatigue, or other aspects of aging, they need supervision to ensure they get the most out of their lives.
And that’s why assisted living franchise opportunities are being built at such a rapid rate–necessity. There is a need to show empathy and provide care for our largest generation, which happens to be the oldest. Senior assisted living franchises are popular for construction projects and community undertakings for medical professionals, caregivers, and even venture capitalist groups. There is a great need. This blog doesn’t say so; the American Health Care Association (AHCA) does.
The country has 28,900 living assistance service franchises (42%) and corporate-owned facilities (56%). That’s 996,000 licensed beds, which averages 33 beds per assisted living community. The needs for senior living are numerous, ranging from memory care to therapy (e.g., physical, occupational, speech) and even hospice. Yet, only one thing connects these senior living assisted franchises and corporate locations–the people in need.
The business is senior adult care, and many professionals are employed to care for them in a hospital, home, or assisted living center. The problem is the care is sometimes incomplete. Their loved ones don’t know what they don’t know. They can travel to these assisted living centers asking questions that they believe will create the best care. However, if they aren’t asking the right questions, those loving people–usually the children of the prospective tenants–won’t get the correct answers.
Assisted Living Locators was created to answer those questions and assisted living franchise opportunities are available to provide complete care for those Baby Boomers.
We are Assisted Living Locators, and you may not have known there is a business to fill this need. There are more than 100 locations nationwide, and each is available to find the best place for those loved ones to live and keep active.
Most importantly, we provide client-centered services that keep the costs away from the pressing need for flexible placement options openly and ethically.
Assisted living franchise opportunities may not be something you have considered as part of your vision to own your own business, but feel more than a profit, but a purpose. Anyone can serve food, clean homes, and deliver goods. While those are worthwhile ventures, there is something different about helping our oldest generation and, in turn, removing the stress from their children or loved ones.
So, what would that be?
An Assisted Living locator care advisor meets with a family to discuss available and appropriate options for senior care. We evaluate all aspects of your senior situation to find the right match: health care needs, religious and political affiliations, mobility requirements, budgets, desired social activities, locations, or the 1001 ways that make your senior unique.
Our franchise owners are compassionate and inherently concerned with the living needs of our clients, someone else’s parents, or other relatives. An assisted living placement franchise is the answer to a question familial caretakers don’t know to ask.
Do you remember “the talk?” That time your parents sat you down and had what has to be one of the most cringe-worthy conversations you’ve ever had? Well, now it’s your turn. The twilight of their lives is here and now. You get to invest in them what they did for you for decades. This talk is difficult to have with Mom or Dad, Grandma or Grandpa, Aunt or Uncle. Talk to them as soon as possible, before any situation becomes urgent.
The choices are many, but the correct answer is the difficult one to make. You will be searching everywhere for the perfect place to take care of your loved ones. There are assisted living franchise opportunities out there to be filled. And when you find an owner of one of them, the idea of placement may not come up. Typically, that’s “your job.”
Depending on the level of independence and care your parent desires and needs, home care solutions or other senior living communities may be a better fit. Learn more about the various options. And if you think you will never find a person with that kind of answer, what if it were you?
You are here, so you want to explore options for business ownership. However, you also have a loved one that may require assisted living. What if you were the angel you were just wondering existed? An Assisted Living Locator franchise becomes a place of answers, a comprehensive guide for families who need everything for advanced family care. What they need–what your community needs–is an advanced living placement franchise.
Your family is unique, but your love for them is not. Your future is unique, but the drive you have to make all you can is not. What if you could do both to fortify your loved one’s future and your own. Assisted Living Locators can make that happen. All you need to do is reach out.
