Home Health Franchises: Different Types to Consider

Home health franchises may seem similar, but there are some differences you need to know before you make a decision. Use our guide for comparing franchise opportunities.


Before determining the right type of franchise, you may be wondering, “Why invest in the home health industry at all?” The short answer is: growth potential. Senior care services are already in demand and that’s only projected to increase. Research shows that the senior care industry is expected to reach a remarkable value of $2,366.4 billion by the end of 2028 – growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% from now until the end of the forecast period.

Also, Baby Boomers are aging. 10,000 Boomers are turning 65 years old every day. As the younger generations put off having children (or ultimately decide to not have any), there will come a time in the near future when the senior population will outnumber kids in the United States.


The goal of all home health franchises is to provide the highest quality care for their clients. However, the services they provide can differ greatly.

  • Non-medical home care: This type of home health business specializes in helping the elderly or disabled live at home comfortably. A lot of the services they provide include cooking, housekeeping, medication reminders, assistance with errands, and companionship.
  • Home healthcare: These franchises offer more specialized care including nursing, therapy, hospice, and other health care services. Some may also provide non-medical services as part of their care plans.
  • Mobility product franchises: These franchises provide mobility aid products such as canes, crutches, walkers and more, allowing for seniors and those with disabilities to be able to move around more easily at home.
  • Assisted living referral: These franchises help families find the best matched assisted living places for their loved ones to live if they are in need of around-the-clock care.

Having a variety of home health franchises to invest in is helpful, but the best part is the affordable investment costs. Since most home health business opportunities provide services that take place within the home, there isn’t as much of a need to have a large space to work from. When you don’t need to rent a lot of office space, you’re able to cut down on your investment costs considerably.
