BERWYN, Pa., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Angel Companions Franchising has just signed an agreement to open a franchise operation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The nation's elderly population is expected to more than double in size by 2050 as Baby Boomers turn 65 at a rate of about 10,000 a day, and the non-medical home care industry continues its expansion even during difficult economic times.
To help meet the demand of keeping seniors at home Angel Companions Franchising has announced the continuation of its expansion plans through the signing of an agreement to open a franchise location in Philadelphia, PA. The agreement signed today with Mr. Mark LaMar will expand the company's ability to service the residents of Philadelphia. Mr. LaMar comes to the program with over twenty years of experience operating Professional Nurses Training Center and Entry Level Nurse Aide Program, schools licensed by the Department of Education that provide the preparation needed to become a Certified Nurse Assistant. Angel Companions is also exploring ways to combine the Certified Nurse Assistant training program as an optional part of its future franchise offerings.
Angel Companions was founded in 2004 by Edward A. Rofi after experiencing multiple family health issues that required him to seek outside help. Between his son's battle with a debilitating form of epilepsy that left him totally disabled, and his elderly father-in-law's challenges with advancing age, Edward Rofi quickly learned how important it was to find quality, trustworthy caregivers.
In his open letter to those that may be interested in opening an Angel Companions franchise, Mr. Rofi comments, "With the Angel Companions franchise program, you'll have the chance to own an independent business supported by our years of experience. But perhaps more important, our franchise program gives you the chance to join a huge and expanding market, and to make a difference in the lives of your clients by offering in-home care – the preferred choice for the growing number of seniors and their families."
