SUNRISE, FL - February 22, 2011 Partners Eric Mott, Jerry Darnall and Donn Wilson are furthering their entrepreneurial spirit by opening the first Interim HealthCare office in Eagle, Idaho. Interim HealthCare is the nation's first and finest home care, staffing and in-home senior care franchise company. A grand opening celebration for the entire community will take place at the Eagle, Idaho Interim HealthCare office located at 1065 E. Winding Creek Dr., Suite 200, at 3 pm on Thursday, March 3rd. To kick-off the celebration, actor George Kennedy will be making a special appearance. Kennedy is known for films such as Cool Hand Luke, Naked Gun and recently filmed the drama 'Another Happy Day' with actress Demi Moore. In addition, the actor is also slated to be part of Interim HealthCare's national ad campaign.
The new office provides a variety of services including the company's unique, HomeLife EnrichmentSM program, which provides an experience that engages seniors and allows them to contribute to a lifestyle that is not only safe and independent, but one that is enriched with meaning and self-worth. In addition, the Eagle Interim HealthCare location also offers personal care services including transportation, meal preparation, light housekeeping, bathing and grooming.
"After looking at several senior care franchises, my partners and I were very impressed with Interim HealthCare's longevity combined with their dedication to helping others," said Eric Mott, owner and operator of Eagle's Interim HealthCare. "We are enthusiastic about establishing a presence in Southwest Idaho and making a positive impact on the lives of others."
As the first wave of baby boomers turn 65 this year, the senior care industry is rapidly becoming one of the fastest-growing franchise businesses. According to a recent study from the Pew Research Center, over the next 19 years about 10,000 people will turn 65 each day, resulting in a grayer America by 2030. This statistic, coupled with the demand for less-expensive, out of the hospital care has been drawing new people to the senior care franchise segment which was initially established by Interim HealthCare in 1966. In addition to joining Interim HealthCare, Mott, a long-time Idaho resident, currently manages Investment Analytics Group, a national real estate service and advisory firm. Partner Donn Wilson, also joins the company with more than 20 years experience in the QSR industry and Jerry Darnall continues to practice law and is the founder of Darnall & Associates.
"We are delighted to welcome Donn Wilson, Eric Mott and Jerry Darnall into the Interim HealthCare family," said Kathleen Gilmartin, CEO of Interim HealthCare. "The growing elderly population and expanded home care market is becoming a great niche for those interested in franchising, helping us to expand our reach and help those in need."
With a network of more than 300 independently owned franchises across the country, Interim HealthCare franchises include non-medical and personal care, nursing and healthcare staffing services. The system has over a 40 year history within the healthcare industry and many of their franchisees have an average tenure of 24 years. Interim HealthCare franchisees share a commitment to improving the lives of their clients and communities, and they continue to realize opportunities for growth in the growing baby boomer segment and home care industry.
