Opening a home care franchise is a big decision. You’re investing your savings in something that’s more than a business. It comes with a set of operating procedures and core values. Since, as a franchise business owner, you’ll be called upon to live those values every day, it’s important to make sure those values align with your own.
Ask yourself, “Am I passionate about this service? Do these values sound like mine?”
If the answer is yes, you’ve found the right match.
What You Don’t Need
When we look at candidates for FirstLight Home Care franchise ownership, we’re looking for positive personality traits, ethics and entrepreneurship. But those qualities are not necessarily conveyed with a college degree. Here some things we don’t require of our franchise owners.
- A medical background: You don’t need a medical background to own a FirstLight Home Care franchise. The services we provide are specifically non-medical, like companionship, help around the house, and travel.
- A business degree: A business background is helpful, but it’s not required to own a FirstLight franchise. We provide top-notch training and support to help all of our franchise owners build powerful businesses using our proven system.

- A passion for helping seniors and others in need of home care.
- Compassion for families making decisions about their loved ones’ care.
