Opening a Home Care Franchise or Starting from Scratch? There Are Some Important Differences!

If you’re thinking about a home care business and are not sure how to go about breaking into our robust and essential industry, you should know there are two ways to go about it: you can start from scratch, taking on all the work and responsibilities yourself, or you can partner with a franchisor like FirstLight and enjoy the benefits that come along with it. Opening a home care franchise with us comes with many perks that aren’t available to you otherwise, and our home care franchise cost includes just about everything you’ll need to get started. Here, we’ll look at a few compelling reasons why opening a home care franchise with FirstLight is a great way to make a real difference in your community.

A Proven Business Model
One of the best reasons to partner with FirstLight as you begin your home care business is that by paying your home care franchise cost, you have immediate access to our time-tested and proven business model. We’ve leveraged all our experience in the home care industry to create a model that takes a lot of the guesswork out of running your franchise, and following it will provide plenty of guidance for its day-to-day operations. From hiring staff to marketing your business to bookkeeping and more, opening a home care franchise becomes a whole lot easier when you have our experience to count on. That’s something you can’t get when you decide to go it alone and start from scratch.

Comprehensive Training and Support
New business owners have a lot to deal with, not the least of which is learning how to navigate their chosen industry and figuring out best practices. That can leave a lot of them feeling stressed and ill-prepared. But when you join the FirstLight family, as your way of opening a home care franchise, you can count on our comprehensive training and ongoing support to put you on the track toward success — and keep you there!
