Join the In-Demand, Recession-Resistant Senior Care Industry -
No Medical Experience Required
Remaining in the comfort of one’s own home is a top priority for seniors, the disabled, the convalescing and others who require assistance with daily activities in order to continue leading independent lives. Assisting Hands provides a wide variety of in-home care to elderly and disabled adults, including homemaker companion care and assistance with activities of daily living like bathing, shaving and toileting. Franchisees can also choose to provide skilled nursing, temporary staffing, and sell specialty items of medical equipment. Longer life spans and an aging baby boomer population are among the factors fueling the demand for our services. As we continue to expand we’re looking for select individuals to join us. As an Assisting Hands® franchisee you’ll benefit from owning a personally- and professionally-rewarding, in-demand business in the recession-resistant senior care industry.
