Ask-Carol! Senior Living Guidance Announces Nationwide Franchise Program

Ask-Carol! Senior Living Guidance,, a leading seniors placement company in the assisted living industry, is pleased to announce a franchise program to enable nationwide expansion during the next five years, providing its franchisees an opportunity to participate in one of the nation’s fastest growing markets.

Tinton Falls, NJ (PRWEB) September 20, 2013 - Ask-Carol! Senior Living Guidance,, has served the assisted living industry the past four years, matching seniors needing help with their activities of daily living to the facilities most appropriate for their needs. Now, in addition to providing its services in the mid-Atlantic region, Ask-Carol! will expand nationwide through a franchise program.

To assure uniform high quality, all of its franchisees must qualify through personal experience with seniors within their own families, prior employment in the senior care industry, or willingness to become a Certified Senior Advisor through the nationally-known Society of Certified Senior Advisors.

The over-65 population will double over the next twenty years and ever-healthier generations of seniors will need help that they cannot obtain at home. Prior to about 1975, many seniors went to nursing homes, but today a large percentage of them who need some help can live out their lives in assisted living with their peers.

Assisted living is often described as similar to a resort hotel, but with the addition of medical and non-medical care. The facilities provide apartments, living areas, meals, housekeeping, activities, and even trips to doctors, churches, and shopping. Pricing varies substantially, but with help most families can find an affordable facility.

Just as hotels rely upon travel agencies to fill their rooms, assisted living facilities utilize referral agencies to do the same. Ask-Carol! is one of the most respected of those referral agencies, working with many of the nationwide providers of assisted living.

Franchisees will select territories based on population, nearby medical centers, high-quality assisted living facilities, and a large senior population. Franchisees can work from home, keeping their costs low. Persons interested may contact the company through or 732-200-1311.
