Our Seniors and Our Service Men & Women: A Perfect Combination

ADL Caring Companions is a company that we have been speaking about for a time, and each week we have delved into the desperate need for senior care.  The need for our elders to be able to stay in their own homes, by being provided with a little extra help – a caring companion who will be there for them to make sure that they have the ability to thrive and live a full life in their golden years without having to face a nursing home.  This companion is the key to being able to remain in the comfort of your life, an aide that offers everything from transportation to appointments and activities, to help with daily chores that can become a bit difficult to handle, to – most importantly – having that ‘friend’ who helps them in their daily lives with conversation and kindness.  This is THE premier home health care agency that was built on ‘heart.’  ADL Caring Companions are, quite literally, just that – a ‘team’ of individuals who very much want to help and be a friend to people who are in need.

 

We have also spoken about how there are many people who have been extremely interested, after seeing the important and great works that ADL Caring Companions is doing in the Lone Star State, that wish to know more about the “ins and outs” of how to go about becoming a “part” of this extraordinary company.  Becoming a franchise owner of an ADL Caring Companions in your area goes well beyond a money-making opportunity.  Not only are you involved in the biggest industry in the world today, but you are also a part of a responsible, loving, caring, skilled and talented company that believes in offering the kindest, most reliable home health care for our mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, etc.

 

However, with all of our discussions regarding becoming a franchise owner, we now wish to head into an area that has proven to be absolutely perfect when it comes to serving both our elders’ needs as well as providing employment to some of the BEST men and women we know.  The home health care industry is a huge opportunity for returning men and women from the U.S. Armed Services who are now looking for a job in this hugely difficult economic time period.  What most of us do not know is that the unemployment rate for military veterans is twelve percent, whereas the unemployment rate for civilians is only eight-point-four percent.

 

One thing that these incredible veterans do have is some amazing franchise opportunities where their kindness, strength, and supreme abilities to help others can lead them to become owners of spectacular businesses such as ADL Caring Companions. There are even publications to help these service men and women to re-engage in the business world that are offered by the Franchise Business Review (http://franchisebusinessreview.com/content/Veterans-Report-2011) which offers tips to one and all about the success of opening a franchise in the home health care sector.

 

A growing number of franchise brands offer special incentives to new franchisees with military experience. Although many organizations have set out to look at the “best” franchise opportunities for veterans, until now, none of these listings included data on actual veteran franchisee satisfaction and performance, which makes the Franchise Business Review’s Veterans and Franchising 2011the first report to look at which franchise opportunities are most ‘veteran-friendly’ based on franchisee satisfaction.

 

To compile the data for this report, nearly two thousand military-trained franchisees, representing over one hundred and seventy-five brands and more than sixty thousand franchise units were interviewed.  From this incredible wealth of data, there comes a list of Top 100 Franchise ideas for veterans, which includes companies with above average satisfaction among the veteran franchisees that were surveyed.

 

One of those top-industry sectors was in-home health care – companies like ADL Caring Companions – which offer our returning veterans a perfect new beginning in the business world. One of the most self-satisfying jobs is to provide non-medical care and companionship to older adults, because not only are you helping others and making money at the same time, but you are also supplying a much-needed friendship to people who may feel alone and isolated from the rest of the world.

 

It is a fact that growth in the senior population has created opportunities to ‘serve’ at home for veterans. An estimated 40.4 million people (13.1 percent of the population) are 65 and older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. What’s more, military service and the world of franchising are a perfect fit. According to Census Bureau statistics, over sixty thousand U.S. veterans are – right this moment – franchise business owners; and in-home health care service companies like ADL Caring Companions is a big reason for that figure.

 

This particular industry is actually very close in scope to the life of a service man or woman.  Why?  Because military training is all about precision and helping others.  Like the military, a franchise opportunity is already set up – they have a successful model and ‘plan’ already set in place that a veteran can ‘go by’ and learn in order to achieve success.  And the discipline, determination and leadership skills that are acquired during military service translate extremely well in the in-home healthcare industry.  These talents and skills are essential when assisting in the activities of daily living (ADLs) for seniors, as well as offering personal care, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, transportation and shopping – all of the aspects of life that enable seniors to live safely and in the complete peace and comfort of their own homes for as long as possible. There is a HUGE need for seniors who wish to stay far away from nursing homes and live out their lives in the comfort of their own homes – surrounded by their families and loved ones.  ADL Caring Companions provides that!

 

Now, for our returning military folk, this has become one of the greatest employment opportunities possible.  In fact, ADL Caring Companions is THE opportunity you must investigate.  Open an ADL franchise in your town or city today and become one of the most beloved people on earth.  Why?  Because YOU had the foresight to make sure that the seniors in your community were given the best care humanly possible.  And…you gave them a true friend.

 

Think about this incredible formula.  Our seniors – happy and thriving, and the men and women who we are completely honored to have defending us – having the successful employment that they truly deserve!  Nothing could make the holidays sweeter!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody.
