Senior Home Care Businesses For Sale

Are you taking care of your Mom or Dad or someone who is seriously ill? Do you live in a different state from your parents and are trying to take care of them long distance? Does your loved one want to remain in his/her home?

If so, you may have discovered how hard it is to find quality senior care services. This is a dilemma many families are facing today. That’s why FirstLight Home Care was founded in 2010 — to fill the gap between seniors needing in home care and a company who is passionate about providing dependable, quality senior care services.

Many of our FirstLight Home Care franchise operators are adult daughters or sons who entered this senior care business because they were personally faced with the challenge of finding quality home care for their loved ones. Others have identified a need in their community – a need that neither an assisted living facility nor hospice can fill. A study by AARP estimates that 89% of seniors want to remain in their home. Yet many communities do not have the resources to provide an in-home option. FirstLight Home Care can fill this gap.

That’s why the founders of FirstLight Home Care started this senior care franchise – their 80 years of experience in healthcare led them to develop a major, national senior care company founded on three guiding principles – reliability, exceptional care and value-driven service.

So if you are looking for a rewarding business opportunity, one that fills a growing need and will bring you personal satisfaction, FirstLight Home Care may just have a senior care business for sale in your community.
