Report - Home Health Care Industry Is Booming, According to New Report
(ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 8, 2009) - The home health care industry
is rapidly growing according to a new industry report released today by FRANdata. What's more, demand for in-home care service
is only expected to grow over the next decade as baby boomers continue to age and require assisted living services.
The industry grew by 13% each year between 2006-2008, adding hundreds of more units that provide non-medical assistance, home care
, and other assistance such as shopping, cleaning and companionship services. Other services may include bathing and hygiene support or 24-nurse care. Significantly, the "Booming Growth: Franchises
Serving the Growing Home Health Care Need" reports that the majority of brands have been in business for less than five years and no brand has emerged as the clear leader of the industry.
"This is a highly fragmented industry," explained FRANdata President and CEO Darrell Johnson. "The 50 largest brands control less than a quarter of the market share. This is an important finding for investors because it means that any brand with the right leadership and resources put behind it can become the market leader."
