Four Key Challenges for Home Care Start-ups

  • Finding Enough Cash: Ginny Estimates the costs from a Home Care start-up at $60,000-$80,000 and for a Home Health start-up from $150,000-$300,000
  • Hiring the Right Staff: Successful start-ups only thrive with the right people for both care delivery and also for managing your office.
  • Getting New Clients: Just last week, we posted a piece from Ginny about making your phone ring
  • Having the Right Systems: Here Ginny talks about Policies and Procedures (an area where she has great resources to get you on the right track) and also things like getting the right software.  She has a technology expert on her team who knows many of the packages in the market
