Start An Elderly Care Business
And Help Others Live A Better Life
The need for elderly care businesses is on the rise. As the baby boomers grow old, the need for elderly care services services and products grows dramatically. You can profit from this rising demand by starting a non medical elderly care business.
As my wife cares for her elderly parents, we often think about the services and products that would make their lives easier.
No doubt most people would prefer to stay in their homes as long as possible. I know I would. Help the elderly to achieve these goals, and you have found a gold mine.
Elderly Care Business Ideas
The need for someone to stay with an elderly person in their home while the spouse goes to the doctor, shopping, or even the hospital creates the need for an elderly sitter.
Elderly sitters must be dependable, caring, able to physically lift a person from a sitting position to a standing position, and trustworthy. If you can cook a meal that would be helpful too.
You could charge for your services by the hour or day. Word of mouth will spread as people tell their family and friends about your services. Advertising in your local newspaper or website will bring all the work you can handle.
Some friends of ours, hired an elderly care taker to live in their home and provide personal care services 24/5. The company they work with hires people in Europe who wish to immigrate to the United States. What do they pay? About $3,000 per month.
Sell Accessibility Products
Here is a great elder care business that you can do from home online. Sell products to the elderly that make it possible to stay home as long as possible.
As people grow old, they need many products that can help them get around. They need wheelchairs, walkers, and mobility scooters.
Discount Ramps (www.discountramps.com) started their online business selling portable wheelchair ramps. We bought one so whenever my wife's wheelchair bound mother visits, we can just push her wheelchair up the ramp to get into the house.
We purchased a bath lift so her mother can get in and out of the bath tub. A power lift chair in the living room helps her to stand up and sit down.
A Life Station® (www.lifestation.com) provides medical alert help at a push of a button. My wife's and my parents wear a wrist watch like device that can call for help should they fall and need assistance. (The challenge is getting them to use it.)
All of these products you can sell from your own website directly. If you use dropshipping, you will not have to stock any products. If you do stock your products, you may need to find a store front and/or warehouse to store them.
