How to Launch a Non-Medical Home Care Startup

Launching a successful non-medical home care startup requires a well-defined roadmap. The blog outlines the strategic steps to navigating the crucial initial stages of your entrepreneurial journey.

We’ll delve into securing funding, cultivating a professional network, and maximizing available resources to make your venture achieve lasting success.

Let’s take a look at the measures you can take to establish a solid foundation for your endeavor:

  • The first step is to start either from scratch or from what already exists (an existing company that you can then buy and make changes to), depending on the amount of capital you’ve collected or need to raise.

    If you need initial capital and any funds/outreach initiatives have not been successful, you can consider taking out equity.

    You can also consider getting a home care startup loan or a business line of credit from your bank/credit union.

  • The next step is to join a member-only professional networking group. You can find many of them online with ratings to help you determine which one best fits your needs. You must be willing to pay the ongoing cost to join the private group of those who work within your new business niche.

    Joining one of these groups will offer you greater business exposure, networking opportunities, access to expert-led training courses, certifications, conferences, and much more.

    Engaging in this step, by the way, can help you get funding too! How so?

    Well, if you ever come across an interested party who believes in the potential of your idea/business plan and is ‘sold’ on its concept, you may be looking at your next startup capital investor or potential stakeholder. So, keep an open mind.

  • You’ll also be required to pass licensure and get a legal business document if you wish to become an “official business” in compliance with local and federal law.

    The city/state/country requirements may vary in this respect. Ideally, it’s best to look online here for further details. It leads you to the official USA.gov regulations on the topic and prerequisites to get started.

    It covers the facts and statistics you need to note, whether you’re planning to officially start a small business or even a medium-sized or larger one.

  • The next step would be to take advantage of every single resource possible. The PDHCA, HCAA, and HCAOA offer multiple contents featuring resources with information on industry events, certification courses online, in-person training, success blogs, etc.
  • Once you’ve budgeted the long-term and short-term initial costs, you want to run a final check to ensure all else is in order.

And then, of course, once all the pieces are in their proper place, you’ll want to consider a relevant launch date, but not before having something like a pre-kickoff.

You’ll want to build as much excitement about your new business as possible. Rally enough interest, support, and attendees, and then hope for the best!

So, this was all about starting a home care business in a box!


If you follow the steps mentioned above and leverage the resources available, you’ll be well on your way to providing exceptional care and making a positive impact in home care.

So, get your foot in the door! Start somewhere. That’s our advice. Take that first step in full confidence. Then, follow through with the other steps.
