Home Health Franchise Opportunity

Why enter the home health industry?

As our population ages, more and more people are choosing to recover from personal health issues in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. USA Today News reported that home health care is one of the ‘top five’ most profitable businesses in the United States. The article cites high owner satisfaction and quick returns on investments, with newer agencies typically averaging 12% to 15% net profit with an average annual revenue of $248,000. Thanks to high demand, low overhead and a respectable return on investment, home health care, specifically for senior care, is prospering.

According to the Census Bureau’s “middle series” projections, the elderly population will more than double to 80 million between now and the year 2050. By that year, as many as 1 in 5 Americans could be elderly. Most of this growth should occur between 2010 and 2030, when the “baby boom” generation enters their elderly years. During that period, the number of elderly will grow by an average of 2.8 percent annually.
