Facts About Starting Elderly Group Home Businesses

worldabooks.com       Navigation

There’s been a recent rise in the number of elderly group home businesses springing up everywhere around the world, what with an estimated one in four families providing care for an elderly relative today. Before you decide to jump on the group home business bandwagon, though, you need to know as much as possible. This brief guide will help.

Some questions you should ask yourself before starting a group home business, or any other home business for that matter, are:


  • What are your talents and skills?
  • Are you looking for a home based career or just to supplement your income?
  • Do you have space in your home for an office?
  • Is your family willing to support you in having a business based in their home?
  • Are you willing to put in the necessary work it takes to get a business off the ground and to sustain it once you have?
  • Do you want to help people?


The last question is particularly important when it comes to starting and operating an elderly group home business. Because if you’re just doing it for the money, you’re likely to be overwhelmed by the personal interaction required for this business.

Some people are happier working all day long at a computer, not having to deal with other people face to face. Or they prefer detailing people’s cars or doing their lawn care to providing personal service that demands constantly interacting with people.

Everybody’s different, and that’s a good thing. Just understand that even if you set up an elderly group home business across town from your own home, you’re going to have to deal with people on a daily basis.

If you decide that an elderly group home business is just the type of business you’re looking for, you’ll have to find out what the laws and regulations are, as well as what licenses are necessary in your state.

There are certain to be some, and you need to know what they are in case you have to obtain any special certifications. CPR and first aid certifications are two that most states are likely going to require you to personally have.

Another thing that you’ll have to look into before you buy or rent that house that you think would be just perfect for a group home business, are the area’s zoning regulations.

This can be a sticky situation in many places, and even if there are no zoning laws or regulations against your opening a group home business where you’d like to, you could well find yourself up against a lot of resistance. It’s mandatory that you know this upfront.

You can look for another location for your elderly group home business, or you just might decide that this is not the business for you.

Funding for group home businesses is not as hard to find as you might think. The Small Business Association, as well as many banks and other financial institutions, can point you in the direction you need to go to find the money you need to purchase a home to start your elderly group home business.

You’ll want to understand all the terms, conditions, and financial obligations. You’ll also want to find out if you must use your current home as collateral. Putting your own house up as collateral may be more than you’re willing to risk for any new venture.

Insurance for your elderly group home business is something you’ll definitely have to have. Liability insurance is mandatory. You’ll also need fire and theft insurance. If you plan to offer any type of medical assistance to the people in your elderly group home, you may even need malpractice insurance.

Other insurance requirements may also be involved. Learn everything you can about the different types of insurance coverage you’ll need, and then shop around for the best prices to obtain the necessary policies you’ll need for your elderly group home business.

Unless you plan to live in your elderly group home business and do everything yourself. You’ll need assistants and personal errand services for the people in your home. Planning for meals, transportation to doctors, dentists, hairdressers, and events, cleaning, and activities are other things that need to be considered before starting elderly group home businesses.

You will also want someone to oversee medications and ensure that people receive and take them at the proper times.

Starting an elderly group home business is not for everybody, but if it’s for you, then you’ll find it tremendously rewarding. And in huge demand. Going into the elderly group home business with your eyes open and doing your homework first will assure that your elderly group home business is a successful one.
