Assisting Hands® Home Care offers practical solutions for clients who wish to maintain their dignity and independence in their own homes. In addition to being trained in home care and having passed comprehensive background checks, caregivers are insured, bonded, and trained in CPR and First Aid. Care plans are created after a Care Coordinator meets with a client to evaluate their needs, discuss service options, and develop an approach.
Owning an Assisting Hands franchise is an extremely rewarding career change for someone interested in the home care industry. Shawna and Tyler Field, a husband and wife team from Rockledge, Florida, felt a calling to leave corporate jobs for a career that provided social support and services. “I worked as a registered dietitian in skilled nursing and long-term care communities. Tyler worked in the insurance industry. We were both seeking professions in which we could more deeply serve our communities. We also felt drawn to the independence and ingenuity opportunities that business ownership can bring,” Shawna explained.
Home care has become an increasingly valuable social service, helping keep people safe and cared for during times of crisis. “We feel owning and running the business as a couple sets the example of teamwork and allows us to more fully share our mission and values with our staff. We also enjoy sharing our work with our family (we have four daughters),” Shawna said. Just like the Fields, their staff is diligent and passionate about what they do. They take extra care to make sure their clients are well fed and safe, and they provide the essential support of companionship.
Assisting Hands sets itself apart from other home care franchises by getting to know each franchisee on a personal level and using their specific skill set to develop a business model that works for their area. They use an “Area Representative Model” to maintain consistent support for each franchisee and help them develop a network of other franchisees who can answer questions and relay data.
