act of life - everybody grows old. Years ago, people used to live near their family members who could take care of them. But in today's age, where travelling across the world is only a matter of a few hours, families are no longer located as closes as they used to be. Children grow up and set off to college, and chances are, will settle down in another state. It just the way things are these days. Even couples who don't move may need to work so that leaves Mom and Dad alone at home. It's a problem if they're physically unable to fend for themselves or they are sickly.

You must have a love for elderly people and feel the desire to care for them. Otherwise, this isn't the ideal business for you. In fact, although one might call it a business, it is in fact, a service. A very crucial service. If you run a good home, your service will be required by a large portion of your community sooner or later.

You'll need to leave your business persona behind when you deal with clients. Many will resent that they have been sent to you. Many will yearn for their families. It may be stressful and at times, depressing, but your clients will expect you to be sensitive and sympathetic. You need to hire staff who like you, have a love for caring for the elderly. Many homes will have a resident doctor or nurse to provide the necessary medical attention to clients but this may add to your cost. If it's not possible, perhaps you could work out some arrangement with a local doctor to visit daily. In this business, the non-monetary rewards are more important - knowing that you are caring for the elderly in their twilight years and providing a vital service to the community.
