Acti-Kare - When you can't be with your loved one... we can!

Own a successful Acti-Kare senior care franchise with our proven business model

Let Acti-Kare turn your dreams of small business ownership into reality! More than ever before, seniors are choosing to remain in their own homes as they age, instead of going into a retirement center or nursing home. And because the number of seniors in this country is projected to increase dramatically now that the first Baby Boomers are retiring, senior in home care promises to become one of the fastest-growing businesses around. 8,000 people turn 65 everyday. 90% of those seniors if given the choice would prefer to stay at home in comfortable familiar surroundings as they age. The cost of an assisted living facility is about 36,000.- 45,000. a year, having care provided at home is 18,000. - 22,000. a year.
