Heritage Franchise Systems: A Tradition of Caring, Partnership & Expert Guidance
Heritage Home Healthcare is a proven, trusted brand name in home healthcare. Through our sister organization, Heritage Franchise Systems, we offer qualified individuals the independence to own their own business, though one supported by our long and successful track record in the field of non-medical home healthcare.
There is little doubt about the exploding demand for home healthcare services, which include such tasks as meal preparation, light housekeeping and mobility assistance. Americans' life expectancy has been rising for decades. As Baby Boomers hit their retirement years, they find themselves the healthiest and most financially secure retirees in history. That means they will choose to remain in their own homes even late in life, in numbers never seen by preceding generations. Increasingly, seniors and their families are shopping for the kind of reliable in-home non-medical assistance that can help them remain in their home.
A Few Numbers to Consider
According to the National Institute on Aging and the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 11% of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 needed long-term care assistance. That proportion doubles for Americans aged 75 to 84. And for those 85 and older, nearly half—or 48.8%--need some form of long-term care assistance.
Those numbers suggest an industry niche that is already sizzling with expanding opportunities, but which will be growing even more in coming years. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that home heath aides constitute the second-fastest growing job category in America. By the year 2016, it is expected there will be over one million of these jobs in the U.S.
With Heritage, You Benefit from a Trusted Name
Americans are steeped in independence, and love the notion of striking off on their own to start a business. The statistics, however, tell a starker story. Only about half of new businesses survive past their fifth year, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration.
With Heritage, you get the best of both worlds: the freedom and independence of being your own boss, but also the support and operational guidance of industry veterans who have been there before and can serve as your guide to success.
