Converting Your Home Healthcare Business

Do you or someone you know currently operate their own independent homecare business? Is your independent homecare business facing increased competition? Are you a brand leader in your market? Do you have extensive website and social media strategies and support? Is it becoming harder and harder to find and retain caregivers? Would your independent homecare business benefit from innovative and industry leading technology? Does your state require new licensure or did state licensure recently change? Does it seem like your business has met somewhat of a plateau? Are you prepared for all of the upcoming changes in the industry (Affordable Care Act, mandatory group health insurance, overtime pay changes for caregivers, etc.)? If you answered yes to any of these questions, as an independent home care business owner, you may be at a crossroad in your entrepreneurial career.
