Utah Company Is One Of The Fastest Growing New Senior Care Franchises In The Country

Monday, December 05, 2005

Even though Utah has the youngest population in the State, it is home to one of the fastest growing new senior care franchises in the country. Spectrum Home Services headquartered in Sandy just announced four new franchise locations putting the number of franchised locations at 15 in nine different states.

For the past five years, Spectrum Home Services, Inc. has been providing personal care, homemaking, handyman, yard care and relocation services for senior citizens and busy Baby-Boomers. They are the first and only company within the senior care and home services industry to offer a complete package of these services. Because of the company's great success, rapid growth rate, and the overwhelming need nationwide for senior home care services, Spectrum now has offices in nine states and is offering franchise territories throughout the United States.

The idea for Spectrum Home Services originated while Jenny Nelson CEO and owner of Spectrum Home Services was preparing a Masters project in Gerontology. According to Jenny, "reports of seniors falling and breaking bones while attempting routine home maintenance, yard care, or home cleaning chores were becoming more common. When recommendations were made by therapists to modify homes with grab bars, handrails, or wheelchair ramps there were no reliable resources available to install the equipment." Because of her observations and 14 years of physical therapy experience she knew the time was right for a company to fill this niche. Thus Spectrum Home Services was born in January of 2000.

By providing a complete package of non-medical senior and home care services Spectrum Home Services has filled a niche historically ignored by home health agencies and larger health-care institutions. This lack of attention and slow reaction to a changing business climate has given Spectrum Home Services an edge in the senior care market that is expanding rapidly as baby boomers near retirement.

According to Jenny Nelson, CEO of SHS Franchising, "We are a homegrown Utah company. We are the only national senior care franchise company founded and headquartered in Utah. We are proud of our Utah roots and we look forward to the benefits our company will bring to this great state.

SHS franchising expects to open 450 franchise locations over the next five years. CONTACT For more information on Spectrum Home Services of North Atlanta please contact Chris Hedges at 770-375-1967.
