“After caring for my mother full-time and seeing the need for high-quality home care services in my community, I recently launched my own home care business. With only a handful of clients and caregivers, it was fairly easy to manage schedules and payroll.
However, as I’ve gained a reputation for high-quality care, my business started to grow and it seemed as though all my time was being spent hiring new staff and working on caregiver scheduling details. It didn’t leave me with any time to focus on why I got into this business in the first place: helping find care solutions for families.
Reaching out to Rosemark was one of the best decisions I ever made. They set up a demo of their software, and after learning about the needs of my agency, helped determine a package of tools that fit my current budget, while allowing us to grow. They’ve been patient with my many questions and they provided great training for me and our sales leader, allowing us to have more time to focus on client and family needs.”

For start-up agency owners like Debbie Harrison, there are a lot of balls to juggle when launching a new business. From marketing and sales to caregiver recruitment and hiring, the steps it takes to fulfill a dream of meeting the care needs of seniors in the community is definitely a labor of love.
New agency owners need a software partner like Rosemark who works with them to streamline efficiencies so that they can focus on building their reputation and providing the highest quality of care.
It’s not uncommon for new home care agency owners to feel overwhelmed by the details required to manage client care. When starting out with a few clients and a few caregivers, the administrative tasks are manageable and aren’t too complicated.
As the business grows, however, the administrative end requires more time and expertise on tasks such as:
Caregiver Scheduling: Matching the right caregiver to each client, keeping record of a caregiver’s days off, and knowing the availability of staff is a great deal to keep track of once the client census and care staff grow.
Billing and Payroll: While providing care is at the heart of everything you do, you’re also a business owner who knows that it’s essential to record billing and payroll accurately in order to retain the most highly-qualified caregivers. Collecting time cards and billing for the correct rate are important and time-consuming details.
Establishing Processes and Procedures to Capture Important Data: With one or two staff members, it may seem unnecessary to have intake procedures established, but as client and caregiver numbers grow, implementing and streamlining the intake process is critical.
Hiring: Reviewing applications, interviewing, checking references and running background checks are important but time-consuming tasks, especially when looking to hire several caregivers at once, or when looking to hire caregivers on an ongoing basis.
