The main reason I chose CareMinders is the business model they have developed and the competitive advantages we have in the market. I wanted to have the option to do both non-medical and skilled nursing and not just one or the other. That way I can maximize the business in my market with a given population. It also allows me to diversify as needed as the national healthcare issue continues to evolve. The advantage of having RN supervision of all cases is a huge advantage. Being able to serve a majority of the continuum of care providing consistency and stability is a strong advantage as well, for both patients and families. Our employee screening process is probably the most extensive in the industry including all the usual things you would check in addition to others that most don't such as up front drug screening, national sanction search, terrorist watch list, etc. As you know, safety is a key issue for family to be confident in and the escalating abuse of seniors makes it even more important. Last but not least, I am most excited about the relationship CareMinders has with the Joint Commission. Having the Joint Commission seal of approval on our business is HUGE. CareMinders does have the best business model to ensure the future success of my business in my opinion.
After months of looking at businesses, we decided on the home health care venture, and then we set guidelines for ourselves and the Franchisor we were looking for. We did not want a franchise that offers just one type of care; if there is a need we wanted to be able to offer that assistance. We needed a Franchisor who would supply the training and information needed to give those services. We looked for a Franchisor who has a solid business plan. We wanted a Franchisor whose business plan included working with the Franchisee to help their business grow. The Franchisor needed to have solid processes in place, software systems that helped those processes and people who are willing to train you in both their processes and software. CareMinders® Home Care is perfect for us, they had what we were looking for, and they are still continuing to help!
