A Senior Care Franchise is a Great Place to Work
The elder care industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, as advances in medical technology and resources allow seniors to live longer. It is estimated that in the next 20 years, by the year 2030, the number of seniors over the age of 65 will grow from 40 million in 2009 to over 72 million seniors in the US in 2030. This is a growth of about 7% in 20 years: 12% of the US population was a senior (over 65) in 2009 and by 2030, that number will be 19%. The senior care franchise industry continues to grow as more and more seniors take advantage of convenient in-home care.
Comfort Keepers®, the compassionate and professional in-home elder care service, provides the highest quality care for seniors who prefer to live independently in their own homes. Caregivers, the highly-trained Comfort Keepers, visit seniors in their homes to help them with tasks associated with living independently. Caregivers can provide care ranging from a few hours of assistance once a week all the way to full-time, 24 hour live-in care.
There are many benefits to working at a senior care franchise. Taking care of others can be very rewarding. Caregiving is also a great way to interact with people and provides opportunities to make friends with senior clients and their families.
Comfort Keepers offers a great working environment because of its established and proven history of over 10 years of high-quality senior care franchise service. Currently, there are 550 local Comfort Keepers franchises offices, providing a network of training, support and security.
Caregivers with Comfort Keepers have the opportunity to not only care for seniors, but also to do more than clean messes or dress seniors. With Interactive Caregiving® with Comfort Keepers, caregivers engage seniors through personal activities such as:
- Taking walks
- Browsing through old photo albums
- Discussing current events
- Working puzzles
- Listening to music together and even dancing
With Interactive Caregiving®, each caregiver can establish friendships with each senior, creating a fulfilling relationship through service.
Each Comfort Keepers senior care franchise works directly with seniors and their families to carefully match caregivers with seniors, matching personalities and interests to provide the best in-home senior care service.
