2022-05-06T09:24:18-04:00May 6th, 2022|Tags: , , , , , , |

PHOENIX — In support of National Nurses Week, Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior placement and referral franchisor, is offering nurses a 10% discount on their initial franchise fee to encourage and honor aspiring nurse entrepreneurs.  

“The chaos of COVID-19 has resulted in many nurses considering leaving their jobs due to burnout, overwork, and high-stress levels,” said Angela Olea, RN Assisted Living Locators CEO. “Opening your own business and relying on your skills as a nurse,  can be a new opportunity.  If you’re an aspiring nurse entrepreneur, we encourage you to consider franchising.”

She added that the Assisted Living Locators franchise system enables nurses to branch out from a traditional hospital role to be their own boss, make their own hours, and have unlimited earning potential, all while making a positive impact on seniors in their community.

“We have many nurse franchisees that have made the transition and now have thriving, growing businesses,” said Olea.

Assisted Living Locators Arizona franchisee Lori Sears is a Registered Nurse in the senior healthcare industry helping families for more than 15 years in her community. “My knowledge as a nurse gives my clients the trust and confidence that I’m providing the right care solution,” said Sears.

Patricia Russell,  Assisted Living Locators Washington D.C. franchisee, has 25 years’ experience as a long-term care nursing administrator before joining the company. “With my nursing experience and this franchise opportunity, I have helped many seniors and their families transition back into the community living with dignity and a better quality of life,” said Russell.

Assisted Living Locators is a nurse-friendly franchisor with an affordable, low-cost investment and a comprehensive training and mentorship platform, according to Olea. With 140 franchisees in 36 states and the District of Columbia, the company is ranked in Entrepreneur’s 2021 Franchise 500® and the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies.

Olea stated that her company is addressing the needs of a soaring aging population. She noted that every day until 2030, 10,000 Baby Boomers will turn 65 and seven out of ten of them will require long-term care services and support, making it a growing industry sector.

Franchisees Nationwide To Assess Needs, Utilize Nationwide Network of In-Home Care Providers To Address New Realities Family Caregivers Face With Their Loved Ones During On-going Pandemic.

PHOENIX — Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior placement and referral service, announced today it is offering free home care consultations in support of Family Caregivers Month this November.

Assisted Living Locators’ 140 franchise offices across the U.S. will assess needs and utilize their nationwide network of in-home care providers to address the new realities family caregivers face with their loved ones during this pandemic.

Spearheaded by the Caregiver Action Network, National Family Caregivers Month recognizes and honors family caregivers across the country. Family caregivers manage health emergencies, juggle priorities, and suffer isolation – and all that was before COVID-19. The on-going pandemic brings even more challenges to family caregivers.

As part of the free home care consultation, a local Assisted Living Locators senior care advisor will meet with each family, virtually or in-person, to learn about their loved one’s needs, living conditions, and personal preferences in order to build a care plan.

“We offer a variety of care resources for family caregivers ranging from Alzheimer’s and dementia care to respite care and much more,” said Angela Olea RN, Assisted Living Locators CEO. “Our nationwide network of home care agencies provides a full range of home health care needs, including social interaction, senior nutrition, and safety in the home, to meet the pandemic challenges and assist families with the help they need.”

“With system-wide dementia care certification, we are in a unique position to help families across the country, educating them about the disease,” Olea explained. “Our dementia care training enables us to provide much-needed support to families and when home care is not adequate, we help families find, at no cost, independent living, assisted living, and memory care.”
