Leading non-medical home care company expands across North America to deliver quality personal and companion care services.

CINCINNATI — FirstLight® Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, is pleased to announce it is expanding its caregiving services to Canada. Sam Riad, CEO of Comfort of Senior Living, has signed on as a master franchise and will operate as FirstLight Home Care of Canada.

Riad currently operates 10 Comfort of Senior Living retirement communities across the Province of Ontario. The master franchise agreement will allow Riad to introduce the FirstLight Home Care brand and deliver the company’s non-medical home care services to a brand-new market.

“We are thrilled to bring our FirstLight brand to Canada,” said Jeff Bevis, CEO and Co-Founder of FirstLight Home Care. “International expansion has always been part of our strategy, and we believe we have found a solid master franchise partner in Sam Riad. He has extensive experience and a deep understanding of the industry, established relationships in the market and the infrastructure for rapid growth. And we share a similar mission, culture and calling to care for aging seniors and other adults in need of extra support.”

Riad and his team will bring the same culture of care and commitment to quality service to residents in Canada by offering FirstLight’s companion and personal caregiving services to adults who need assistance. The partnership is a natural complement to existing demand and future growth in Canada.

“We recognized the tremendous success of FirstLight in the U.S and realized how beneficial this model would be to the Canadian market, especially with the recent increasing trend of older adults wishing to stay at home longer,” said Riad. “We are passionate about helping individuals in our communities, and FirstLight sets the pace by offering innovative home care services that ensure people in need receive premium care.”

Canadian CEO Brad Rye will lead the implementation of FirstLight Home Care into Canada. Rye has owned and operated various Homes for Special Care for the past 30 years.

In Support of National Invest In Veterans Week, Assisted Living Locators Offers 10 Percent Initial Franchise Fee Discount to Encourage Veteran Business Owners

2020-03-02T10:00:02-05:00March 2nd, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — In support of National Invest In Veterans Week, March 1 – 7,  Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior placement and referral franchisor, announced today it is offering veterans a 10 percent initial franchise fee discount to encourage and honor aspiring veteran business owners.

Assisted Living Locators is a veteran-friendly franchisor with an affordable, low-cost franchise fee, a 10 percent veteran discount, and comprehensive training and mentorship platform, according to Founder and CEO RN Angela Olea. With 130 franchisees in 36 states and the District of Columbia, the company is ranked in Entrepreneur’s 2020 Franchise 500®, Franchise Business Review’s 2020 Top Franchises Report and the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies.

Veterans are buying into franchises at a record pace. According to the International Franchise Association, one of every seven franchises in America is owned by a veteran. “Veterans make great franchisees because they have the skills it takes to own and run a successful business – a mixture of leadership, hard work and dedication, and the ability to follow systems and procedures,” stated Olea.

“Franchising can be a tremendous opportunity for veterans because the business framework is already in place,” she explained. “As an established, top-ranked senior placement brand, Assisted Living Locators offers the entire package for aspiring veteran business owners. Not only do we have a proven, successful business model, but we also offer exceptional training and support for our franchisees.”

Olea noted that some of their best Assisted Living Locators franchisees are veterans, such as Arizona franchisee Dustin Baker, recently named Franchise Business Review’s 2019 Rock Star Franchise Owner.

Baker served in the United States Army as a combat medic in an artillery unit during Operation Iraqi Freedom. He was also an administrative supervisor at an outpatient surgical ward at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, TX.

As a top Assisted Living Locators franchise producer, Baker helps and mentors his fellow franchisees and also passionately cares for his senior clients and families, the company and community.

“After my career as a combat medic ended, I wanted to own a business that would make a positive impact on my community,” said Baker. “My journey in helping and serving others led me to the role of Assisted Living Locators franchise owner to provide care and guidance to seniors and families in my community.”

“As thousands of men and women return home from war, it is important to acknowledge the skills they have acquired during their military careers,” Olea added. “They operate their businesses the same way they served their country, with integrity and dedication, and possess the strong characteristics that make an outstanding franchise entrepreneur. We encourage them to join our organization.”

Assisted Living Locators Partners With Rehburg Life Settlements To Provide Families With Opportunity to Help Pay For Long Term Care

2020-02-11T10:46:23-05:00February 11th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

First-Of-Its-Kind Collaboration Aims To Offer Seniors Alternative Funding Solution For Senior Living Expenses.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior care placement and referral service, announced they’ve partnered with Rehburg Life Settlements, a leading, nationally licensed life settlement brokerage, to provide families with an opportunity to help pay for long term care.

A life insurance settlement is a financial transaction that enables qualified life insurance policy owners to receive a cash payout on their life insurance coverage by selling it to interested buyers.

This first-of-its-kind collaboration offers seniors and their families an alternative funding solution for senior living expenses such as in-home care, assisted living or memory care, according to Assisted Living Locators CEO RN Angela Olea.

“As 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 each day, older Americans face both financial and health care challenges,” Olea stated. “Our local senior care advisors are on the frontlines in their communities every day helping guide families to the right care solution that meets their financial needs. By partnering with Rehburg Life Settlements, we can provide our clients with an important alternative funding solution that can help pay for long term care.”

“According to the Insurance Studies Institute, 500,000 seniors a year lapse their life insurance policies, translating to over $100 billion in policy value,” explained Lisa Rehburg, president of Rehburg Life Insurance Settlements. “That is a lot of potential funds that seniors are giving up, for nothing, each year. Additionally, 90% of seniors who have let a policy lapse would have considered selling it had they known life insurance settlements existed.

We help clients benefit from life insurance policies they no longer need or can afford,” said Rehburg. “Life insurance settlements can be a good option for them to benefit from their ‘hidden’ asset and help them pay for senior living expenses.”

But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble, and closely in touch with their customers’ needs—because in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive.”
