Families who have a loved one in need of care, such as memory care for seniors, face a difficult time. They have to select the right care for their family member, and it is never an easy decision to make. Sometimes, the sheer number of options can be overwhelming. This is where a senior care consultant can make a positive difference in someone’s life. If you’ve wondered how to start a senior placement agency to help people like these, then you’ve come to the right place.
Our company is a home-based model that has little overhead costs and minimal operating expenses. Working with a spouse or an administrative assistant who handles the documentation, paperwork, and daily tasks, you are free to focus on developing new opportunities and presenting about your services in the community. You build new relationships and get referrals as your business grows.
As a senior care consultant, you meet with a family that is facing the decision of what the right care is for their loved one. You present them with information on care options in the area based on their needs. You will have done a significant amount of research on these care options and visited facilities in person and talked with their representatives yourself. This knowledge helps families to make the right decision because they don’t have to do all the research and legwork themselves. They can just tour the facilities that are of the most interest to them, based on the information you provide.
Then you accompany them on tours of the facilities. You make sure that their questions are answered and help them do the paperwork if they decide to place their loved one in a certain facility. Then you provide follow-up support to make sure that the transition went smoothly. You may also answer their questions after placement about senior care if they have any.
This type of business is for those who are dedicated, compassionate, good communicators, and who love serving others. We provide this type of support to our franchisees in the form of training, answering questions, a proven marketing strategy and assistance in finding potential clients.
