Has anyone ever started their own LLC Company (self-employed) as a CNA/Senior Helper?
I'm 51 and graduated from the American Red Cross CNA program this summer. After working at companies for 20 years, I'd like to be my own boss.
I live in a semi-rural, but upscale part of the state and wonder if there would be a need for a CNA to provide one on one care helping Seniors. Everything from taking them grocery shopping, putting away the groceries, light house keeping, pet care, dog walking, Doctors/Vet appointments, etc.
The town does provide bus service for Seniors, but from my experience, some don't want to be on a bus schedule, never mind, anyone helping them put away the groceries, in addition to what I want to offer as explained above.
My husband says I'd need to see an Attorney for advice as far as insurance, setting up an LLC, getting Bonded, etc. (which I agree)
Any thoughts on Pros and Cons??? Different ideas? Thank you!
Very good point. I am not working as a CNA in the home.
My CNA training helps me get better jobs, than if I were a caregiver with no training.
