Networking in the Senior Care Franchise Industry
When most aspiring entrepreneurs start researching the best franchise opportunities, they begin looking for one piece of data: how successful can I be? Although the average revenue of current franchisees may be an incredibly important figure to know, the professional support and collaboration potential can be even more telling. Franchisee networking is a critical part of success, and if you’re looking into a franchise that doesn’t facilitate this type of internal communication, you could be missing out on major opportunities for growth and support.
Community is one of your biggest assets in business, especially in senior care franchising—yet it’s one that too many franchise owners overlook. At CarePatrol, you get the stellar profit potential you desire. But you also get fellowship—a deep well of experience and expertise that you can draw from in a wide range of ways.
CarePatrol’s Annual Conference
Every year, CarePatrol holds a conference to bring together all our franchisees and their employees. Here, conference-goers attend in-depth meetings and presentations that cover all areas of the senior care advisor business, from operations to HR to marketing and beyond. This is a unique chance to learn from industry experts, successful peers, and corporate team members as they lead seminars designed to help all of our partners succeed.
Of course, we also have fun! During the Annual Conference, we announce exciting new corporate projects, host a variety of team-building and social activities, and highlight successes and accomplishments with our very own awards ceremony.
In 2019, 100% of our franchisees attended the conference—a figure almost unheard of in American franchising. The 11th Annual CarePatrol Franchise Conference will take place in January 2023. Don’t miss your chance to see what all the fuss is about!
In addition to our regular Annual Conference, we also hold smaller, regional meetings. These meetings are a chance to hone in on local challenges and growth opportunities, as well as meet other franchisees in your area.
Every regional meeting brings something a little different as the organizers tailor business sessions to the challenges and opportunities our franchisees are facing in that time and place. Whatever aspect of being a senior care advisor you need help navigating, you’ll find a creative and engaging way to address it during these regional events!
Big meetings and networking events are a phenomenal way for us all to share innovations, work as one team, and celebrate our successes. But we also focus on organizing local teams to help build camaraderie and give our franchisees a dedicated support network.
Local teams are typically small, which allows staff to build close relationships, maintain organization, and complete tasks efficiently. Local team members from all backgrounds will fit right in, including:
- Previous small business owners
- Care professionals
- Corporate professionals
- Others with managerial, senior advising, or operations experience
CarePatrol Franchisee Newsletters
As part of our robust program of ongoing support for franchisees, we send out monthly newsletters. These provide franchisees with the latest news and information about CarePatrol’s nationwide efforts and accomplishments, including:
- Staff updates across all corporate departments
- Event links and reminders
- National news relevant to the senior care industry
- Links to helpful resources
- Location spotlights
We put a lot of thought into our newsletters so we can keep franchisees informed on their peers’ endeavors and successes, as well as ensure that they are always supported. When you’re part of the CarePatrol family, you never have to feel like you’re out there on your own!
Continuing Education Presentations
Continuing education is clearly something we are passionate about here at CarePatrol. That’s why we offer a handful of virtual CEU (continuing education unit) presentations each year. We invite franchisees to come together with fellow owners and staff for these educational digital calls in a supportive and collaborative environment.
We provide moderators, guest speakers, and experts so that these presentations feel structured and genuinely useful for our franchisees. The goal is always for these calls to be informative, engaging, and energetic—we value everyone’s time, and do everything we can to ensure that CEU presentations are an enriching experience.
Ongoing Virtual Webinars
Our corporate team shares live and recorded webinars on an ongoing basis throughout the year. That means you don’t have to wait for the next big conference to come around to learn something new! These webinars examine topics in accounting, business development, marketing, national accounts, technology, and vendors. All you have to do is join our live links, or log into our dedicated resource website and view them whenever you’re ready!
These webinars help everyone stay informed and on the same page. Everyone has the same advantage at CarePatrol! If there’s something you need more information about, chances are someone has recorded a webinar about it. And if not, you’ll always have the contact information of someone who can help you work through the problem in real-time.
