The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, generally referred to as “Obamacare” has expanded the role the home care industry will play in the nation’s senior services sector. The federal statute calls for a strong partnership between hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and non-medical home care agencies to increase the quality of care seniors receive across the board. This comes as good news to the senior care industry in America, which is booming due to the rapidly aging senior population. More importantly this will open doors to new business owners seeking to start their own senior care franchise.
The Hospital Readmission Reduction Program (HRRP), a provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, requires that hospitals implement a plan to reduce unnecessary and expensive hospital readmissions for the same condition within the first 30 days. The program currently focuses on three conditions: 1) acute myocardial infarction, 2) heart failure and 3) pneumonia. The program is poised to expand to more conditions. Hospitals that fail to reduce readmission rates for patients receiving these treatments will face stiff penalties.
To comply with the new standards, hospitals and skilled nursing facilities are searching for quality home care providers. This has led to the growth of health care personnel and business owners turning to Always Best Care Senior Services, the national leaders in home care solutions for seniors since 1996. Always Best Care offers franchise opportunities for those seeking to open their own senior care business as well as play an integral part of the community.
Dedicated to providing the highest quality of home care solutions and personal assistance, an Always Best Care franchisee can expect to be a part of a national network of local experts in elderly care. Franchise owners will be given a comprehensive three month introductory training as well as ongoing local and national support in staffing, management and financial systems. As national policies and changing demographic trends increasingly require home care solutions, Always Best Care looks forward to meeting the demand and providing their much needed locations everywhere.
