Senior Care Authority® is a high-growth, award-winning American franchise with over 100 U.S. locations. Providing families with eldercare consulting and placement of elderly loved ones in retirement communities or memory care. The company’s average client age is in the low 80’s, and most client cases involve some form of dementia.
How are Senior Care Authority services different from homecare agencies?
Unlike homecare agencies, we do NOT provide “hands-on” care. We provide advisory services to families who are seeking retirement community placement and memory care options for senior loved ones. As a result, the Senior Care Authority model does not have the expensive staff overhead costs and direct care liability of a homecare agency.
How do Senior Care Authority franchisees earn their fees?
This is a unique business model offering services in senior living options, eldercare consulting and advocacy services. With multiple revenue streams, most costs are not paid by families but by contracted living communities.
Does Senior Care Authority provide families with advice on dementia care options?
Yes. Many of our client cases involve some form of dementia, which plays an important role in advising on appropriate senior living communities and care options. The number of people living with dementia in the UK was estimated to be close to one million in 2021 (944,000), by 2050 this figure is expected to rise to 1.6 million as shown in the graph below.
