It is a perfect time to start a small home health care business for seniors with safety measures in place. Currently families are looking at the safest care options for seniors who require additional daily support at home, retirement communities, or in residences (public & private).

If you are thinking of opening a caregiving business, or currently have on in operation, then you know that it provides a unique career opportunity that offers a valuable service for seniors in your community.

One key part to owning your own caregiving business is that you must remain organized and up to date in your bookkeeping, client information (medical & personal), as well as taxes. Here you will find assistance with the business aspect of caregiving, so that you will be able to put your focus on what is truly important; you caring for seniors.

The ‘How to start a senior care business’  guide  is written for caregivers just starting out as well as those of you who wish to expand on your already existing knowledge of the business.

So many caregivers fly under the radar financially only to find that in times like during a pandemic, that it is much better to be a legit business so that you can apply for financial protection from the government as it becomes available. It may seem like a daunting task to set up a company, but really it doesn’t take much. Your local tax office can help answer any of your questions and guide you step by step. It  can be as simple as filling out necessary forms, and then seeing your accountant to set up, and file your taxes once a year. As your company grows so will the filing. Working on a cash basis may seem like an attractive option, but it can come with serious consequences.

If you are set up like a home care agency, a family will most likely hire you over an agency that will charge more, and send multiple caregivers. More often than not, a family will only lean towards using an agency because they do not want to have to deal with the logistics of employing a caregiver. Truth be told private caregivers have the same abilities as agencies, they just don’t know it! As a caregiver to you can take care of invoicing, paying yourself on a schedule, and setting aside income tax. None of these tasks are difficult with proper collecting of information, planning, and organization.

The senior care business templates that come with the guide help keep you organized so that when you do prepare for tax time everything is in order. The templates are designed specifically for small senior care business owners. When you download the guide you also receive 15 essential senior care business document templates templates that are designed specifically for small senior care business owners.
