How Senior Care Franchisees Benefit Their Communities
Business experts have long known that intrinsic motivators are much more powerful than external ones. In other words, you have to align what you really want with what you’re doing to truly be successful as a business owner. One of the top motivations driving the most successful entrepreneurs is knowing they’re making a difference in the world. And for a lot of people, that means giving back to their local communities.
You don’t have to be independent to build up your local community. In fact, joining a national brand with a trusted reputation and proven business model can give you the upper hand you need to succeed. And the more successful you are, the more good you can do for the people and economy around you.
That’s especially true for senior care franchises like CarePatrol. CarePatrol’s senior care advisors are local small business owners who live and work in communities that need their help finding the best senior living solutions. Let’s take a look at how CarePatrol franchisees make a difference!
Filling a Necessary Gap
The most evident way that senior care advisors impact the community is by providing a much-needed service. A recent survey by Nexus Insights found that almost a quarter of Americans over 50 needed long-term care for themselves or a loved one in 2022. Of those people, more than half reported feeling anxious and frustrated about the process of choosing the right senior care option.
The survey’s researchers say there is “a grave need for more consumer-friendly resources” in the U.S. to help families understand their options, navigate the many decisions they have to make, and arrive at the best choice for their situation. CarePatrol has been answering this call for over 20 years, and we’re only growing.
As a CarePatrol franchisee, you can turn a perilous maze of stressful decisions and overwhelming options into a personalized road to a senior care solution. We provide you with all the extensive training and tools you need to become a true expert in the care options in your area. Then, you’ll use that knowledge to help out the growing number of families in need.
Supporting the Local Economy
Senior living communities don’t get the credit they deserve when it comes to local economic development. Older adults contribute to the local economy in plenty of meaningful ways that have been traditionally undervalued, whether they’re living in retirement homes, independent living communities, or assisted living facilities. In fact, seniors contribute roughly $20,000 per person to the U.S. economy, or about 7% of the GDP.
So, where does a senior care advisor come into play? Finding living arrangements that best suit seniors’ needs helps them thrive, which in turn helps them remain active in the local community.
Often, when families are overwhelmed by the stress of navigating all their options on their own, they can make decisions that end up leaving their loved one with lower-quality care, or care that isn’t well coordinated with their medical and personal needs. On the other hand, if they find a care option that helps them thrive, they’re more likely to stay healthy and involved.
Promote Community Building
One of the major ways that seniors remain active in their communities is through volunteering. About 25% of Americans over 55 are volunteers, whether through faith organizations, local schools, or other causes that they care about. Those who aren’t capable of volunteering can benefit from the efforts of others when younger members of the community have the chance to provide companionship, share their talents, and otherwise make bonds with their elders.
As a senior care advisor, you will partner with the senior living locations that are providing the best services and environments for those they care for. You can help raise the bar of excellence, promoting those organizations that do the most for seniors. Plus, you yourself will have plenty of opportunities to get involved as part of your path to building relationships with the people around you.
Direct Involvement & Outreach
We’ve talked before about how to build relationships as a senior living advisor. After all, making meaningful connections is a major part of what CarePatrol franchisees do! One of the best ways you can do that is through community outreach. Outreach is a great way to bolster your network and make inroads with local healthcare providers, caregivers, senior organizations, and more. And of course, the more your business grows, the more people you’re able to help.
CarePatrol franchisees don’t charge families for their services—instead, they enter into mutually beneficial arrangements with their referral partners. That frees you to talk to local people at community events and gatherings about what you do with no strings attached.
