So I've been kicking around the idea of buying/starting some assisted living homes (serving under 10 residents) and possibly franchising the concept down the road. Seems like assisted living homes might be the latest health care wave, and one that is much more beneficial to the resident than a large facility.
I worked in group homes (similar concept but with developmentally disabled adults) for years when I was a teenager, and I loved it. I would really love to be able to create policies and procedures and offer great care to residents and a workable patient to resident ratio for CNAs. I also get jazzed when I think about creating a training program, as I would love to work toward providing the best care and training out there.
Any thoughts on pros and cons to attempting to franchise an assisted living home business?
Thanks for your input.
