Top 4 Reasons Veterans Succeed as Home Care Franchisees

As a veteran, you deeply understand the importance of independence. For many senior citizens in our country, including more than 11 million military veterans, maintaining independence can seem far from possible. But home care franchises are making autonomy more feasible by offering high-quality services that bring comfort and dignity into the homes of our nation’s senior citizens.

As we approach Veterans Day, we want to take a moment to highlight veteran entrepreneurs in home care. Not only is home care a booming industry—it’s also an attractive, veteran-friendly franchise model. Let’s take a look at how the skills and experiences you’ve earned as a service member line up with some of the ideal characteristics of a ComForCare candidate. 

Self-Motivated Individuals

Volunteering your service to the military demonstrates a powerful self-motivation to do great things. But studies also show that today’s veterans are highly driven to use the critical skills they’ve mastered in situations beyond the line of duty. Post-9/11 veterans are achieving incredible things, including over 30% higher earnings than their non-veteran peers. 

That all comes down to the self-motivation to channel your military skills, talents, and accomplishments into success. As a ComForCare franchisee, you’ll have the opportunity to do just that, growing your business at your desired scale and speed. The only limitation is your ambition.

Solid Managers and Team Leaders

Even the most outwardly confident business leaders can fail under the pressure of leadership. It takes grace and composure to handle pressure when stakes are high, relate meaningfully to the people who report to you, and strategize effectively for business growth. Service members are well-equipped to take these duties on and take them seriously.

Even if you didn’t hold a high-ranking leadership position in the military, you know just how large of an impact decision-makers have on the success and well-being of their teams. You’re acutely aware of how your decisions affect the entire group, you can make those important decisions under pressure, and you can effectively solve problems with everyone’s best interests in mind. All of these attributes will undoubtedly serve you well as a senior care entrepreneur.

Strong Communicators

To succeed in any business environment, you have to be able to coordinate employees, teams, third-party vendors, and clients. This is especially important in senior care, where the health and well-being of older adults and their families are at stake. As a former member of the armed forces, you’re used to collaboration and teamwork—perhaps that’s why veterans are 45% more likely to start and lead their own businesses than civilians. 

In a combat situation, clear communication is beyond critical. But as any vet knows, communication is about more than relaying information. It’s also about understanding your audience, adapting to their expectations, and presenting your message in a way that connects with them. As a senior care franchisee, you’ll facilitate much-needed care for families in your community, using your communication skills to ensure that everyone’s needs are met to the highest standards.
