5.Can I operate my Acti-Kare elderly care franchise from home?

The answer depends on two key factors – the state you operate in and the services you provide. It is quite common to start off providing companion services and then expand into to personal care offerings. Depending on the state, a personal care license needed to operate your senior care franchise may require a small office that is not located in your home.
