Your One Stop for Everything You Want to Know about Starting and Running a Home Health Care Business
Planning Your Home Health Care Business
If you’re reading this, it’s probably a good sign that you’ve already decided to start a home health care business. You’ve got your mind made up. You know this is what you want to spend your time and energy on for several years. Starting a business and getting it off the ground is difficult and painstaking work, and shouldn't be taken lightly. So, make sure you’re committed to your chosen path. Planning to start Running  your House Cleaning Business
If you haven’t done so already, you might want to spend some time considering various different alternatives. Ask yourself some questions:
Do you have enough capital to launch your new Home Health Care business, and keep it running and growing during its initial start-up years?
Do you have the skills necessary to run and manage an office? Although it’s important that you know a thing or two about home health care, remember that running a Home Health Care business is very different from knowing how to care for an individual client. (See the book “E-Myth Revisited” for an interesting analysis of the differences between making the best apple pies in town and running a successful chain of apple pie shops.)

A Home Health Care business requires ongoing contacts with customers. For a start, you need to interact with prospects when they call you. I have been surprised when calling certain businesses (Home Health Care businesses as well as businesses in other industries) to hear the phone answered unprofessionally, in some cases even by a child. Do all you can to maintain a professional and friendly demeanor. Your prospective clients want to hire a company to clean their houses who are trustworthy, personable and are responsive to their needs.

As day-to-day operations of your Home Health Care business progresses, there will be daily interactions with clients. Some will be calling with complaints and some will be calling to inquire about additional service. It is important that you handle such queries in a professional manner, and you're responsive to the clients' needs.

In short, your "people skills" will be a critical factor in your success. If you don;t like working with people, or you feel that this is not your strong point, then you may want to reconsider the idea of starting a Home Health Care business. Alternatively, you could hires someone or take on a partner who des have the people skills required. In any service business, dealing effectively with clients is an important skill to have.
