Growth, Growth & More Growth
While it may be obvious to some, it is important to detail the population growth trends that are driving the senior placement industry. The demand for senior placement and advisory services continues to increase every single year. Starting from the year 2015, more than 10,000 people are turning 65 every day. By the end of 2025, the senior population in America will reach nearly 72 million. (Source: The Department of Health and Human Services and the State Department) The need for senior placement services is growing out of necessity and is largely based on changing demographics, technological advances, societal factors, and lifestyle changes that include:
There is a growing preference of assisted living versus family caregiving
Medical technologies enable seniors to live longer and remain more connected to family
Dual-income families do not have the availability to care for mom or dad
More and more children live away from their parents
Changes to Medicare / Medicaid have placed more of care burden onto families
First & Foremost: “No Experience Necessary”
Over 80% of franchise owners in the senior care industry have no previous experience when they start. That is an important distinction to make when it comes to considering this industry as a place to call home.
Just because no specific experience is required, that does not mean everyone can build a successful senior advisory business. Knowing yourself and the areas where you excel is the key to assessing if this industry is a great match for you. For example, do you possess the following:
a passion for helping others
a desire to run/operate your own business
compassion and empathy towards the elderly
sales or account management experience
the ability to motivate others
the financial resources to start and grow your business
Given our vast experience in the industry, contacting us is always the optimal way to learn more about the senior placement industry and the Owl Be There business opportunity.
