Beau Brothers, founder of Sitters Etc. LLC knows firsthand that children of aging parents live with a certain dread. They often jump when their phone rings late at night, or when they recognize the phone number or area code as originating from where their elderly loved one lives.

This scenario is all too familiar. As America's senior population grows, the demand for quality in-home care is on the rise. According to Pew Center Research, among all adults with at least one parent age 65 or older, 30 percent say their parent or parents need help to handle their affairs or care for themselves.

Brothers started the company in 2002 when his grandmother could no longer live alone. Since then, thanks to its "Culture of Care"(R) philosophy, Sitters Etc. grew to more than 300 caregivers and 12 corporate locations before launching a single franchise. Today, Sitters Etc. is a thriving business that will provide economic and financial impact in regions of expansion that will employ new caregivers statewide for each of the Area Developer territories awarded.

Sitters Etc. Franchising is now expanding across the country. They now have Master Area Developer's in Ohio, Kentucky and Florida as well as many others in process. The company has registered and is now offering its franchises to qualified individuals and Area Developers in 30 states. Franchisees also are trained in "New Mom Care" and "Illness & Rehab Recovery" services that include running errands, picking up prescriptions and groceries, transporting seniors to their doctors' appointments and keeping an eye on their overall health condition.

While Sitters Etc. is rapidly growing, Brothers ensures that franchisees uphold the values and standards that Beau Brothers established in 2002. "We are seeking people who understand the unique needs of our aging population and their families," he said, "and who want to make a difference in their community."

To monitor customer satisfaction and quality of care, Sitters Etc. conducts a telephone survey of each client about the professionalism of its caregivers. From 2011 to 2012, the company enjoyed a 97 percent "highly satisfied" client rating, nearly 25 points above the industry tracking index.

Further expansion announcements are expected soon, as demand is skyrocketing in the non-medical healthcare industry. For more information on the franchise offering, visit Sitters Etc.
