There are plenty of reasons to invest in home care franchise opportunities. For example, you’re buying a proven formula, there’s a built-in support system, typically strong ROI, and you can be your own boss in one of the hottest industries today. That being said, there are definite things you should ask yourself and think about before investing, like what market demands and cost are and, ultimately, will I be happy with your investment many years from now? Most things in life don’t have a magic crystal ball that you can peer into and see what the future will hold. But sometimes you can find out what other people have to say about their investment, and that’s about as close to a crystal ball as it gets. This is what Marisol Reyes, president and administrator of Assisting Hands West Houston, has to say about purchasing an Assisting Hands Home Care franchise and why she chose them over other home care franchise opportunities.
In 2010, Marisol’s mother was diagnosed with stage four cancer. Marisol had no senior care experience, but knew she wanted her mother to remain comfortable in her own home, so she called an in-home senior care provider. Two years later, Marisol decided she wanted to provide the same kind of care to other families. That’s when her search for home care franchise opportunities began. She was considering several home care franchise opportunities when she saw a video of Terri Robbins, owner of Assisting Hands Home Care Houston.
Marisol said that Terri’s sincerity and compassion sold her on investing in Assisting Hands. She realized it was more than just a business opportunity; that the people who owned Assisting Hands really cared about those they served. That was important to Marisol.
It was this family feel that drew Marisol to Assisting Hands above all other home care franchise opportunities. “It’s family-oriented,” she said. “It’s all about helping each other, and all owners are welcome.
The hardest part of the process was making the initial commitment. After that, it was simply waiting for the loan to go through. Once her decision was made and the franchise was bought, Marisol’s experience with Assisting Hands was nothing but pleasant. Terri Robbins and Diane Wright, director of franchise development, walked her through the starting process to better understand the basics of her newly purchased business. There was never a time Marisol felt anyone at Assisting Hands gave less than 100 percent support with ongoing training, support, and regular visits.
For those considering home care franchise opportunities, Marisol has one thing to say about what Assisting Hands owners are looking for: team players. “Everyone works together,” she said. “While other franchises may have animosity between owners, there’s no competition here. We help each other out and encourage one another.”
Parsing through the countless home care franchise opportunities can be a tedious task.
