Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a Home Care for the 21st Century franchise.

Home Care for the 21st Century provides a range of services for seniors in their own homes. Headquartered in Bradenton, Florida, Home Care for the 21st Century was founded in 1994 and began franchising its concept in 2019. 

Home Care for the 21st Century is searching for franchisees to open locations in select states across the United States.

Home Care for the 21st Century strongly believes that seniors are better off at home and seeks to ensure that seniors can stay in familiar surroundings for as long as possible. Home Care for the 21st Century offers a compassionate and professional 24-hour home care service.

Why You May Want To Start a Home Care for the 21st Century Franchise

Home Care for the 21st Century does not allow absentee ownership. Instead, franchisees will be directly involved in running their operation. Because of this, it's important that franchisees reflect the core values of the business. Opening a Home Care for the 21st Century might be a good decision for you if you're positive, passionate about work, honest, responsible, and ambitious. Due to the nature of the work, you would be responsible for maintaining very high standards.

What Might Make a Home Care for the 21st Century Franchise a Good Choice?

Of course, different seniors have different needs. Recognizing this, Home Care for the 21st Century offers eight different business models that the franchisee can follow. Some franchises may provide just one service, while others offer more. The eight models include

  1. Companion Care: Caregivers do chores, remind clients to take medication, prepare meals, and chat with them.

  2. Personal Care: Same as above, but also includes dressing, feeding, and attending medical appointments.

  3. Private Service Provision: The franchisee sends nurses to give needed therapies.

  4. Medicare Skilled Services: The client's physician has prescribed services and your nurse provides them.

  5. Hospice Care: Here, the franchisee works closely with the client and their family to provide end-of-life care.

  6. Medical Staffing: This involves providing health facilities with the staff that they need, whether for temporary or full-time positions.

  7. Non-Emergency Transport: This might involve taking your client to the store, visiting relatives, or attending medical appointments. 

  8. Equipment Provision: This model offers a wide range of equipment, from wheelchairs to oxygen tanks, that will help your client live as independently as possible.

To be part of the Home Care for the 21st Century team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising fees and royalty fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set liquid capital requirements.
