Franchise Opportunities in Oregon and Washington

This may seem surprising, but did you know Oregon is one of the top U.S. states for the senior population and is where current and future retirees are flocking? Why?

  • Beautiful weather
  • Endless events and activities year round to stay healthy:
    • Hiking
    • Biking
    • Camping
    • Fishing
    • Plus much more
    • Healthy atmosphere with mountains and the ocean

There’s so many more characteristics that Oregon offers that are drawing in a huge portion of the senior population, creating a high, unmet need for a variety of senior and home care services. This increasing need for services is why FirstLight Home Care is seeking owners for several areas throughout Oregon and Washington.  An even greater element of these territories is the future growth opportunities for the senior and home care industries. The growth in these territories is only going to become greater, with FirstLight Home Care expecting to open multiple offices all across the several available markets in Oregon. FirstLight locations in these areas are expected to  generate over 100 jobs within each area, within the first three years!

We are confident of FirstLight Home Care’s future growth in Oregon and Washington, especially with our newest service offering, “Telehealth,” which we will introduce in to the Oregon market as well as our current offices across the U.S. This service is provided by FirstLight and works with our “Readmission Rescue Program,” allowing people with health issues to remain in their homes longer with peace of mind of key vitals, monitoring as needed. They simply call in their health vitals to a Telehealth nurse who is constantly monitoring and tracking their health. The nurse then alerts the doctor of any vitals that begin to look like a threat to the patient’s health and could possibly lead to a hospital readmission. The doctor and nurses of Telehealth then take the necessary steps to treat the patient, preventing them from readmitting to the hospital, keeping them happy, healthy and in their home. For a growing senior population this service offering will be a huge advantage not just for our clients, but also for our FirstLight Home Care owners in this area!
