start a home care business
Home care is the fastest growing segment of healthcare industry in America. This is due to our aging population and preference of many older Americans to remain in their homes as long as possible. According to the United States Census Bureau, 13 percent of the population will be over the age of 65 by 2010. By 2030, the figure will jump to 19.6 percent. Existing Homecare agencies continue to grow in popularity to meet this great demand for in-home care services. The demand for personalized home care services is skyrocketing because seniors want and need our personalized services.
Home care services can be medical or non medical. They provide a wide spectrum of services offered by health care professionals such as nurses, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, respiratory therapy or other non medical care provided by companions, home health aides or personal care aides. In short, home health staff provides and coordinates the medical care, personal care and home care of the patient in the comfort of their homes. The home health team develops a written care plan for client care based on doctor's orders, a comprehensive service plan and other therapeutic plans. The plan includes services designed to improve and maintain the physical, mental and social well being of the client.
“Starting a home care agency “can be a very rewarding enterprise. Home care agencies, especially non medical home care businesses are relatively easy to start, depending on the state. However, the quality of services provided and quality of your staff determines the reputation of your agency in the community. The key to have a successful home care agency is to have a strong mission and goals which must be woven into every part of your business, a systematic operations system, a highly strategic marketing plan and other important factors will contribute to the success of your agency.
