2022-08-14T18:44:34-04:00August 14th, 2022|Tags: , , , |

The non-medical home care franchise’s CEO, Jeff Salter, will discuss how innovation can improve the way home care workers care for seniors and the disabled.

SAN ANTONIOCaring Senior Service, a non-medical home care franchise, announced today that CEO and founder Jeff Salter is scheduled to discuss how innovation can improve the home care industry at the Texas Association for Home Care and Hospice’s (TAHCH) 53rd Annual Meeting later this month and at the National Association for Home Care and Hospice’s (NAHC) Annual Conference and Expo in October.

“While it seems that non-medical home care has changed very little over the past few years, the fact is that innovation in the industry is coming and should be met with open arms,” Salter said. “Technical advances in how we communicate with family members, how we physically care for clients, and how we interact with a client’s own medical devices are something our workforce and our care management teams need to be trained to manage.”

Salter is slated to share key methods on how Caring Senior Service has evolved to meet today’s challenges and what the industry will need to be competitive in the future. In his address titled, “The Home Care Industry Needs a Revolution,” Salter will discuss some of the technologies and advancements home care companies should expect to see in the coming years.

Caring Senior Service already uses a proprietary tablet-based software called Tendio® to assist franchisees in operating their locations. This software offers a family/caregiver portal, real-time video conferencing, caregiver tracking, electronic timesheets and a messaging center. The home care company credits Tendio® with improving workflows and enhancing service delivery.

Salter is scheduled to speak at 11:15 a.m. on Aug. 31 at the three-day TAHCH conference in Round Rock, Texas. For more information, visit https://www.tahchannualmeeting.com/.

The NAHC Annual Conference and Expo, which will be held in St. Louis, Missouri, will feature Salter’s session on Oct. 25 from 11 a.m. to noon. For more information, visit https://www.nahc.org/.

Caring Senior Service partners with Veterans Care Coordination to raise awareness of home care benefit for veterans

2022-05-24T14:02:43-04:00May 24th, 2022|Tags: , , , |

The home care company will work with the privately-owned veterans advocacy group to ensure qualified veterans receive the benefits they need to age in place.

SAN ANTONIOCaring Senior Service, a non-medical home care services franchise, announced today it has entered into a national partnership with Veterans Care Coordination™ to raise awareness for veterans and their families who may be eligible for the Pension with Aid and Attendance benefit through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

“Our mission is to allow all seniors to stay healthy, happy and at home, and the Aid and Attendance benefit is in keeping with that mission,” said Caring Senior Service founder and CEO Jeff Salter. “We owe a debt of gratitude to our nation’s veterans and are honored that we can repay their service by raising awareness about this benefit. Caring is an organization dedicated to assisting veterans and their surviving spouses, and we are looking forward to providing them with the home care services they need.”

The Pension with Aid and Attendance benefit provides an increased pension for home care or other medical expenses for Veterans and surviving spouses who meet eligibility requirements.  Conditions of eligibility include active duty during wartime, honorable discharge, non-service-related medical conditions, as well as income and asset limits.

The partnership will allow Caring Senior Service to connect eligible veterans and surviving spouses with VCC’s experienced team, who can assist with the application process and with monitoring and maintaining eligibility requirements once approved. VCC also assists in connecting veterans who are not eligible for Pension with Aid and Attendance with resources and care options which provides Caring Senior Service with opportunities to serve more veterans through this partnership.

“This partnership with Caring provides an opportunity for veterans who may not otherwise receive home care to benefit from home care services,” said VCC President Jeff Schweikert. “We appreciate the commitment of Caring Senior Service to helping veterans and their families.”

VCC was founded in 2011 by CEO Kyle Laramie after he discovered a little-known benefit called the Pension with Aid and Attendance. VCC’s mission is driven by the memory of Laramie’s late grandfather, Norbert Laramie, a World War II Veteran who unnecessarily missed out on essential VA benefits simply because his family wasn’t aware of the opportunities that were available to assist him in his golden years. For more information, visit https://vcchc.com/.

Caring Senior Service provides home care services which can include companionship, meal preparation, personal care, medication reminders, assistance with errands and appointments, light housekeeping, and respite care. For more information, visit www.caringseniorservice.com/.

Veterans Care Coordination™, LLC., is a healthcare-based organization, not associated with any government agency, that assists eligible veterans and surviving spouses in application, monitoring and maintenance of the Pension with Aid & Attendance benefit to help cover medical expenses and home care services. VCC partners with home care agencies and referral sources nationwide to serve veterans and surviving spouses. For more information, visit https://vcchc.com/.

Caring Senior Service develops national training program to improve quality of care

2022-04-25T09:19:29-04:00April 25th, 2022|Tags: , , , |

The home care company’s GreatCare® certification provides caregivers, staff and franchise owners with the tools they need to elevate their skills.

SAN ANTONIOCaring Senior Service, a non-medical home care services franchise, is now offering caregivers, office staff and franchise owners an opportunity to advance their educational and professional development and delivery of services through the company’s GreatCare® certification program.

The GreatCare® certification program challenges owners and staff to achieve milestones that prepare them to address the three most important areas of concern in senior care: quality caregivers, care solutions and active involvement.

“Proper education and training creates the foundation for an employee’s understanding and performance of their job duties,” said Caring Senior Service founder and CEO Jeff Salter. “By developing this catalog of tools, training and processes that support our GreatCare® methodology, we hope to encourage owners and staff to better understand their roles, improve their leadership abilities and provide the GreatCare® that Caring Senior Service has developed over the past 30 years.”

Salter said the program is of particular value to the caregivers who make up the majority of Caring Senior Service’s team.

“Caregivers are often under-appreciated or taken for granted in the industry,” he said. “With our GreatCare® certification program, Caring hopes to show its commitment and loyalty to our caregivers by providing them the tools they need to succeed.”

The program has separate tracks for the franchise agency director, the care manager and the homecare consultant. To achieve the GreatCare® Master Certification, participants must complete a progressive program that starts at the certified level, moves to the advanced level and then culminates with the master level.

Team members who have more than two years’ experience can also achieve a master certification through an accelerated program path in their local office.

Caring Senior Service rolled out the initiative as part of the company’s overall GreatCare® mission to give franchise owners the tools to measure how well their teams understand their roles. Staff members who complete the program are given recognition that they are experts in their field, allowed to receive merit raises and are invited to attend the national GreatCare® Master conference.

“Ultimately, the goal is to provide our clients with the best care possible,” Salter said. “We could not achieve the success we’ve had in the home care industry without our clients’ support. It’s for them that we strive to create these best practices in home care.”

“The value of home-based care has only grown stronger over the past year, as demonstrated by our incredible rise on this ranking,” said Jennifer Sheets, president and CEO of Interim HealthCare. “Interim HealthCare’s unique combination of business value and personal reward makes owning a franchise an ideal opportunity for those looking to do well by doing good, and I extend my congratulations to all of our franchise owners whose dedication has helped make this achievement possible.”

Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500® ranks companies based on outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power. Over its 43 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Interim HealthCare’s continued presence at the top of this highly sought-after list is a testament to its strength as a company and a franchise opportunity.

“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500® list more enlightening than ever,” says Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feiffer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive, and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”

Interim HealthCare has been steadfast in its industry advocacy work over the past year, continuing to elevate home care as the patient-preferred method of care within the wider healthcare industry. The company’s experienced franchise support network and demonstrated business value has attracted multiple new owners in 2021 while continuing to expand its presence across the U.S. Additional highlights from 2021 include:

  • Furthering its advocacy work by commissioning the Home Health Insights Study. This research examined consumers’ shifting perspectives around access to medical care and changing opinions on healthcare careers brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic to inform the company’s business focus and outreach moving forward.
  • Elevating its HomeLife Enrichment® standard of care through unveiling new caregiver guides for dementia, diabetes, heart failure and hospice. These comprehensive resources are integral to the holistic care of patients that supports the mind, body, spirit and family.
  • Ranking No. 81 on the 2021 Franchise Times Top 400, which evaluates the 400 largest franchise systems in the United States by global systemwide sales, based on the previous year’s performance.
  • Continuing to celebrate healthcare workers’ commitment and dedication since the start of the pandemic through innovative campaigns to unify messages of appreciation for nurses and caregivers across the healthcare space.

In Entrepreneur‘s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s 43-year-old ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The editorial team researches and assesses several factors that go into the evaluation, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.

The annual list recognizes brands for their outstanding performance in areas including financial strength and stability, unit growth, and brand power. Of the 500 companies listed, Senior Helpers was named among the top-ranked national homecare providers. As the population ages, the demand for home health continues to grow and the COVID-19 pandemic has only emphasized the need for safe in-home care.

“To be recognized for the eleventh year in a row as a top franchise in Entrepreneur‘s competitive ranking is a significant milestone,” said Rob Cantrell, Executive VP of Franchise Development at Senior Helpers. “The in-home senior care industry has been challenged over the past 24 months, and we applaud our franchisees for being nimble and innovative, all while prioritizing safety and quality care for each and every one of our clients.”

“Every year we take extraordinary pride in celebrating the companies that are honored in our Franchise 500 list and the 2022 list was no exception,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur editor-in-chief. “The past year has been unlike any in recent memory and the franchise systems who made the 2022 Franchise 500 earned their place by not only teaching us something about franchising, but about entrepreneurship.”

As COVID-19 and the omicron variant spread across the country, Senior Helpers has taken unprecedented steps to ensure the safety of its caregivers, staff and clients. The company reviews guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) daily and consistently provides owners and staff with ongoing updates.

“Being included on the Franchise Business Review’s list of the top 200 franchises would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of both our corporate team and, of course, our franchisees,” said Caring Senior Services CEO and founder Jeff Salter. “Certainly 2021 was a difficult year for business, especially for those companies whose employees deal directly with the public during events like a pandemic. My hat is off to our entire team who found the will and determination to power through the trials associated with COVID-19, supply chain shortages, and other challenges.”

Caring Senior Service was among more than 300 franchise brands, representing more than 30,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. Caring Senior Service’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

“While the pandemic impacted various business sectors differently, the last 18 months have clearly demonstrated the inherent strengths of the franchise business model. The old franchise adage of ‘being in business for yourself, but not by yourself’ has never been more important,” said Franchise Business Review founder & CEO Eric Stites. “Thanks to fast innovations, significant support, and responsive crisis management, many franchise brands have emerged stronger from the pandemic, and that is reflected in high franchisee satisfaction.”
