Keep reading, so you can learn more about this low-investment home-based franchise business opportunity that has a very memorable name.
Ask-Carol! A Home-Based Business Focused On Seniors
Fact: Approximately one million seniors reside in over 30,000 assisted living facilities in the U.S., with around a half million of them moving into them each and every year.
But, how are these moves coordinated? More importantly, how do the children decide where their senior parents should live? It’s not like they have an intimate working knowledge of the assisted living industry and know who to call to take care of their parents living arrangements. Usually, decisions of this magnitude are thrust upon them. And, these decisions are super-important. Life-changing. For everyone involved. It would be great if their was some help available to them.
From Carol Shockley:
“Placing a parent in assisted living, home care, or a nursing home is a once-in-a-lifetime event for most families. They have no experience or training, and their parent(s), usually in their 80’s, often have dementia and are unable to contribute to the process. We help those families make the right decision so they won’t have to do it over.”
There it is. That’s what Ask-Carol! franchisees do.
In case you missed it, Ask-Carol franchisees provide a free placement service that helps families find appropriate assisted living facilities, home-care agencies, and nursing homes for their senior parents.
You can operate your franchise from the comfort of your home. All of your work is done by email and telephone. You don’t meet prospective clients in your home, nor do you accompany them on tours of the assisted living facilities you recommend.
In addition, you’ll become a Certified Senior Advisor.
From The Society Of Certified Senior Advisors:
“The Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)® is the leading certification for professionals seeking to supplement their knowledge and adjust to the rapidly changing age demographic by understanding the multiple processes of aging. Earning the CSA® certification requires individuals to pass a rigorous exam, uphold the highest ethical standards, and complete re-certification continuing education requirements.”
CSA’s are committed to ethical behavior to benefit senior clients and their families.
