Build a successful aged care franchise with Pearl Home Care
With double digit growth forecast for the national aged population, now is the time to cement your position within Australia’s fastest growing sector
An ageing population and growing demand
The size of our population aged 70 years and over is forecast to increase by around 1 million people each decade; from a base of 2.7 million people in 2019.
Increased capacity and preference for in-home care
Baby boomers will be reaching their 70s in the 2020s and their 80s in the 2030s. They are wealthier than previous generations and will be able to afford a higher standard of care to support a higher quality of life and their preference to remain living in their own home for as long as possible.
Presently, there are not enough providers to meet excess demand for in-home care, with wait lists estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands. This puts Pearl Home Care franchise partners in strong, secure positions today and for the foreseeable future.
Growing government funding
The Health Care and Social Assistance sector remains the country’s fastest growing sector. The Australian Government spent $18.1 billion on aged care in 2017-18, up from $17.1 billion in 2016-17.
$24 billion is budgeted for 2021/22
More than three quarters of funding increases are attributable to increases in residential and home care expenditure and 60% of that is being directed to in-home care to alleviate the growing demand on the public health system and reflecting the Government’s response to the increasing number of consumers wishing to remain in their own homes.
What we are looking for in a franchise partner
People from many and varied backgrounds are successful Pearl Home Care franchise owners. Presently, our franchisees include professionals from areas such as accounting, sales and marketing, aged and disability care, and those who have previously owned a small business in another industry.
To be successful, you should be a self-starter, goal oriented, and be passionate about making a difference through the care and support provided to our vulnerable, ageing members of the community.
If you’ve got the right attitude, we’ve created a business model and associated systems that will support your success.
