Card Campaign To Send Love To Senior Moms That Need It The Most.

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior placement and referral service, is launching “Mother’s Day Messages Of Love,”  collecting cards to send love to senior moms that need it the most. Assisted Living Locators’ 140 franchise locations are distributing the cards to residents at assisted living and skilled nursing communities throughout the U.S.

“With visitor restrictions still in place at many assisted living communities due to the ongoing pandemic, mothers and grandmothers may not get the expression of love they deeply desire this Mother’s Day such as a hug, a kiss on the cheek, or a face-to-face talk,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators CEO RN.  “Sending messages of love has never been more important, we ask the community’s help, from adults to young children, to participate in this card campaign and brighten a senior’s Mother’s Day.”

Participants can mail the cards to their local Assisted Living Locators office. To find out a local care advisor near you,  call 1-877-226-7780 or enter your ZIP code on the website, www.assistedlivinglocators.com.  

Follow these simple guidelines:

  • Please WASH YOUR HANDS before writing cards and do not seal envelopes.
  • On front of envelope: To Someone Special
  • To sign the card for children: Name and age or grade
  • To sign the card as an adult: Name and hometown
  • Include a Return Address on the envelope, if you wish, so seniors can write back.
  • Keep messages positive. (“You are being thought of today.” “Hope this card makes you feel special today.”)

“Mother’s Day is a time for connecting, with family, friends and the community at large,” said Olea. “This campaign will  lift the spirits of the mothers and grandmothers we serve.”

Olea added that if you’re a caregiver of a senior that is struggling with loneliness at home, now is the time to consider transitioning to an assisted living community. “With COVID-19 vaccines here, assisted living communities are a safe way to combat the isolation and loneliness that result from sheltering in place during the pandemic,” she explained.  “These communities offer seniors daily exercise, social activity, and a clean, safe environment.”

Assisted Living Locators Celebrates Women Franchisees On International Women’s Day

2021-03-08T11:49:59-05:00March 8th, 2021|Tags: , , , , , , |

Franchisor Empowers Women With Entrepreneur Opportunity.

PHOENIX — Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide top growth senior placement franchisor, is celebrating its women owners on International Women’s Day, March 8. The annual event raises awareness of women’s achievements, opportunities and potential.

“In the spirit of International Women’s Day, we want to highlight our women franchisees and the amazing entrepreneur opportunity franchising provides for women,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators CEO RN and founder of the first senior placement franchisor in the U.S.

Over her 14 years in franchising, Olea has seen tremendous growth in the industry for women.  “About 55 percent of Assisted Living Locators’ 140 franchisees are female,” said Olea. “We have successful female franchisees from all walks of life. They range from women in their late 20s looking for a career to women who have retired from corporate America and now want to do something where they have more control over their own destiny. Female franchisees in the Assisted Living Locators’ system run the gamut from Wall Street to being homemakers their whole lives and everything in between,” she noted.

It’s been Olea’s experience that when women are getting into business ownership, they tend to put a priority on flexibility and balance.

According to Assisted Living Locators of San Gabriel Valley, CA franchisee LeeAnn Allman, her franchise provides a much-needed work-life balance, giving her the flexibility to still work, but also meet her children’s needs. “During the pandemic, I have been able to homeschool my children and fulfill my dream of entrepreneurship,” she explained. “Owning your own franchise, being your own boss while having an incredible corporate office that always has your back is the best of all worlds!”

“At Assisted Living Locators, we value women and find they excel as franchisees,” explained Olea. “Our franchise system is perfect for nurturing women where they can use our brand recognition and proven business model to make their own success.”

Alane Roberts, Houston Assisted Living Locators franchisee and National Association of Professional Women member, urges women to take the entrepreneurial plunge and own a franchise.  “Franchising is a more secure approach than starting a business from the ground-up,” she explained.  “By joining a powerful brand like Assisted Living Locators, you have the wonderful combination of running your own business, and a huge support network behind you with existing processes and best practices.”

“More women need to enter the franchising industry because they bring unique qualities and perspectives as business owners that bolster their success,” said Olea. “At Assisted Living Locators, we can make your dream of an entrepreneur come true. If you’re ready to take on your very own franchise, let us help you through the process.”

Assisted Living Locators Sees Baby Boomers Driving Franchisee Sales Growth

2021-02-09T11:21:00-05:00February 9th, 2021|Tags: , , , , , , |

Senior Placement Franchisor Matches Generation With Boomer-Friendly Entrepreneur Opportunity.

PHOENIX — With more and more people over 50 making the leap from dreamer to entrepreneur, Assisted Living Locators, one of the nation’s top senior care franchisors, is seeing baby boomers as a driving force in their franchisee sales growth.

Baby boomers, born between the years 1946 and 1964, consist of 20 percent the national population — some 76 million people.

The senior placement franchisor is matching men and women of this generation with a boomer-friendly opportunity to build their own business.

“The baby boomers aren’t slowing down,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators CEO RN.  “We’ve seen this first-hand at our company, as more and more of our franchise applicants are in this over 50 age bracket. In 2020, 50 percent of our new franchisees were baby boomers and are energetically making their mark as an entrepreneur.”

Olea explained the baby boomers choose entrepreneurship as an encore career in order to pursue a passion, work on their own terms and continue to create wealth for themselves and their families.  She noted that a great route for them to take is with a franchisor, like Assisted Living Locators, that offers a business opportunity that makes sense for this generation.

“Baby boomers themselves are taking advantage of the senior care market by starting businesses that serve their older, generational counterparts,” said Olea. “Our senior placement and referral franchise allows for baby boomers to easily relate to their customer base. We are also recession-and COVID-19 resilient because we are an essential service to the community. Our home-based franchise offers a lower initial investment accompanied by a high potential for revenue and a feel-good energy.”

Mike McClernon of Long Island, NY, age 59, embraced the opportunity to become an Assisted Living Locators franchisee. As a former CEO of a medical care business, he brings his past experience to his successful franchise, enjoys helping seniors get the right care and makes a difference in his community. “Most important, I didn’t have to build my business from scratch,” said McClernon. “I had the advantage of built-in name recognition, a proven business model and extensive support from Assisted Living Locators for building and marketing my business.”

Olea stated baby boomers interested in starting a business should look at their age and experience as an asset. “Baby Boomers are goal-oriented, competitive and independent which are three characteristics that contribute to being successful in a franchise,” she added.

Lori Sears of Phoenix, AZ, age 57, wanted to find a franchise that leveraged her years of experience and professional network in skilled nursing.  “As a registered nurse, I was looking to own my own business with a franchise that matched my interest and knowledge in senior care,” she explained. Sears found her answer in Assisted Living Locators franchise that she has owned for the last four years as a top performer.

“It’s exciting to see how the DNA of America’s entrepreneur is shifting,” said Olea. “We can help baby boomers match their interests, their entrepreneurial spirit and help them attain small business success. We encourage qualified candidates to apply as we expand across the U.S.”

“We all remember the warm glow a Valentine’s Day card can bring,” said Olea. “This campaign will most certainly lift the spirits of the seniors we serve.”

Olea added that if you’re a caregiver of a senior that is struggling with loneliness at home, now is the time to consider transitioning to an assisted living community. “Not only are residents and staff prioritized to receive the first round of coronavirus vaccine, but assisted living communities remain a safe and viable way to combat the isolation and loneliness that result from sheltering in place during the pandemic,” she explained.  “These communities offer technology connection options for families during social distancing, daily exercise, social activity, and a clean, safe environment.”
