Highly recommended for anyone considering setting up in the field. Dec 8 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sponsored by Entrepreneur Magazine, Start Your Own Senior Services Business: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Success is a no-nonsense source of ideas and practical strategies for getting a potentially lucrative business up and running, especially in the modern era of aging baby boomers. In addition to general advice for serving seniors, running a senior care service and developing one's plan, chapters look in-depth at operating an adult day-care service, relocation service, home care and home health-care service, concierge service, transportation service, and travel service. The final portion of Start Your Own Senior Services Business is packed heavily with tips, tricks, techniques, and vital tidbits for everything from how to set up a dependable team to financial matters to when things go wrong. Perhaps the most valuable piece of advice is the warning not to take every job offered, especially not ones that are beyond one's technical skills or expertise - better to refer those to another, who may well return the favor in the future. Highly recommended for anyone considering setting up in the field.

Just Basic business info May 18 2010
By Glenn P. Marceau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you read this and gave it a good rating, then you probably are related to the author. The title of the book is "Start your own senior services business, your step-by-step guide to success". After reading the book, I found the title to be VERY misleading. It is NOT a step-by-step guide. It is very generalized that can be put to use in any business practice. It was very vague. It touched on subjects of how to run a business but it was not even close to be a step-bystep guide. Luckily I checked it out at my local library and didn't waste one red cent on buying this so called book.

Start Your Own Senior Services Business Review Feb. 23 2007
By E. A. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I felt that this book contained valuable basic information that would get you on the road to starting a senior services business. This book gave a number of ideas; such as daycare, concierge, and relocation services, and explained them in detail.

I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to gain a basic understanding of the types of senior-oriented businesses and what is entailed when trying to start one up.

This book opened my eyes Sept. 28 2008

This small book opened my eyes to the complexity of selling services to the senior market. Its contents prevented me from wasting time on researching services that I was considering offering. It helped me when I spoke with my insurance agent. Worth the money!!

A few good commonsense ideas, but not much substance Dec 7 2008
By John Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I hoped it would offer some insight into important issues of offering caregiving services to seniors. One of the most important items, I think, is being able to bill the insurance companies for this work when it is covered. After all, what person would want to pay themselves for services that could be paid for by their insurance company? Unfortunately, nothing about this was discussed. I feel this book was written on a macro, not a micro, level. It is good for a broad discussion of what types of businesses cater to seniors and what those business basically do. But, it doesn't offer much beyond this. Just my opinion -- your mileage may vary. :)
