It’s been nearly two years since the pandemic started, and we’re still finding ourselves adjusting and adapting to the ‘new normal’. Economies are struggling, and many lives have completely changed; just about everyone has been affected by the deadly virus, including nursing homes.

Amidst the pandemic, health care institutions such as nursing home facilities took a massive hit in infections and fatalities, affecting everyone from the residents and caregivers to the visitors. Due to the advanced age groups and underlying comorbidities such as heart disease, dementia, lung disease or cancer, caregiver homes have become especially vulnerable.

Unlike hospitals, nursing home facilities are not designed to deal with infectious diseases like Covid-19. Patients are often separated and isolated from their families because they’re seen as weak and helpless, with their rights often being ignored.

However, Assisted Home Nursing (AHN) believes in treating the elderly with the dignity and respect they deserve despite their age. Before the pandemic, research has shown that most senior citizens prefer home care nursing than moving out of their homes to a nursing home facility. If you think about it, these feelings are understandable.

By opting for assisted home nursing, they would have a more personalised experience and still have a sense of independence while also having a higher quality of life.

With little to no visitations allowed during the pandemic, more and more people opt to remove their loved ones from nursing homes and consider home care nursing. For this reason, now could be the ideal time for you to become a franchisee.

Despite its initial struggle, the South African franchising industry has grown tremendously, contributing to 15.7% of South Africa’s GDP. The South African franchising industry has truly evolved from humble beginnings into a profitable sector, creating thousands of job opportunities for aspiring entrepreneurs.
