Senior Helpers franchise candidates do not need any prior experience in either the home care or medical industry.

Our family of owners come from a variety of backgrounds including sales, marketing, HR, management, customer service, prior or current business ownership, and administration. The areas where we find commonality are drive, integrity, self-starters, compassion, efficient time management, and a passion for working with and helping others.

As the owner of a Senior Helpers franchise, you can provide a wide range of senior care services within your local market.

Our services include standard caregiving, such as companion care and personal care, as well as skilled care for Alzheimer’s and dementia, and  Parkinson’s. New to Senior Helpers in Canada and not yet available at all locations, we are the only home care brand to offer the LIFE™ Profile assessment system. This data driven tool has proven to reduce hospitalizations and improve client outcomes for home care recipients at participating Senior Helpers locations throughout the United States. 

Senior care franchises are considered some of the most profitable businesses available to franchise investors. This is due to rapidly growing demand for home care services, driven by the Baby Boomer generation. Senior care is also considered one of the most recession-resistant franchise industries.

As lucrative as senior care can be, it takes a specific type of business owner to succeed with a caregiving franchise. That’s why Senior Helpers places a strong emphasis on candidates who share our core values.

If you are a motivated self-starter with a passion for helping others, a senior care franchise can provide both financial and personal rewards.
