How Does Senior Homecare by Angels Attract New Caregivers?
When opening a franchise, it’s important to find a team who is dedicated to your agency’s mission and will work hard to make your business successful. Here’s how Senior Homecare by Angels helps franchisees find some of the best caregivers.
At Senior Homecare by Angels, we understand our caregivers are special in every way. After all, they’re the ones making sure our clients have the support they need to stay safe and comfortable at home.
When opening a franchise with Senior Homecare by Angels, you may wonder about how you can get the best candidates to work for your agency. Our agency strongly values building relationships – both with clients and caregivers. This model of business has helped us find caregivers who are right for the job.
How Do I Find Caregivers?
When opening a franchise, finding new caregivers can be as easy as running help wanted ads and waiting for contacts to come in.
Most of our caregivers have a pre-established background in the healthcare industry. Millions of workers who come from this background are usually middle or early senior age and years working in hospitals, nursing homes, and nursing agencies. However, these businesses tend to “burn out” their workers by requiring them to care for an excessive number of patients in a day.
In other words, they want to continue working in the healthcare industry, but they’re looking for a low-stress field.
Senior Homecare by Angels gives these workers a chance to start in a good working environment. Caregivers want to work for us because we offer opportunities to work in single-home setting where they only work with one client at a time, which is way less stressful than working with 15-20 patients at a time in a nursing home.
How Much Care Will My Clients Need?
At Senior Homecare by Angels, we find that most clients need significant hours of care. A typical client needs care for 4-24 hours a day for around 12 months. They also tend to spend anywhere from $25,000 to $200,000 a year on professional homecare services. In homecare industry statistics, a metropolitan area of one million people could potentially contain up to 20,000 clients who are in need of professional care per year.
That means at these rates, working with 20 substantial clients a week could amount to 30-45 per cent gross profit for your agency after caregivers are paid. That’s why it’s important to bring in as many clients (and caregivers) as possible.
How Do I Retain Clients and Caregivers?
As we mentioned, Senior Homecare by Angels heavily emphasizes the importance of building relationships with clients and caregivers. By providing training and support to every franchisee, we make sure that our franchise owners have the skills they need to create and maintain long-lasting relationships with their employees and the clients in their care. When opening a franchise, make sure you communicate with clients and caregivers as much as possible so you can build these relationships – it’s what helps us keep clients far longer than industry averages.
