As a physical therapist, Rich Ueberfluss saw first-hand the need for caregiving — someone to do medication reminders, someone to make sure they are eating correctly, someone to help monitor their chronic health conditions. That was the impetus to him becoming an Assisting Hands franchise owner in Chicago.

If mentally, they’re not safe to be alone, they need a caregiver – someone to do medication reminders, someone to make sure they are eating correctly, someone to help monitor their chronic health conditions, and that’s what Assisting Hands does.Rich Ueberfluss

Hear why Miami franchise owner Armando Morales chose Assisting Hands after researching several senior care franchises. He experienced the need for home care with both his parents, which has a great impact on his family including his sister quitting her job to take care of their mother.
When I started researching with different companies and different franchises, I decided I wanted to go with Assisting Hands because Assisting Hands had the most through process in terms of making sure that the franchise owners are getting into the business because they like working with others, they are very ethical, they are committed to serving others, and you know they were going to do a good job to preserve the name of the company. That’s something different I saw with Assisting Hands versus the other companies.Armando Morales
