BEFORE, DURING & AFTER TRAINING

AT ALWAYS BEST CARE

Always Best Care has perfected a three month introductory training process for new franchisees.

The Always Best Care system utilizes a variety of training techniques, but the heart of all our programs is one-on-one interaction with franchisees to help them build their businesses.

Here's an overview of your first 90 days as an Always Best Care franchise owner ...

Weeks 1-4: Completion of Pre-Training, which focuses

on a series of operations-based training modules that

must be completed prior to attending Corporate Training

at Always Best Care's corporate headquarters. This phase

of the training program focuses on insurance requirements,

licensing, print and marketing material, and preparing a

competitive analysis. Pre-Training is divided into modules

that are completed via self-disciplined study applications,

one-on-one coaching, and informational webinars.

Week 5: Five-day training session at Always Best Care's

corporate headquarters in Roseville, California, just outside

of Sacramento. Your Corporate Training includes classroom

training, a day in the field visiting and speaking with key

contacts at skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities

and residential care homes, and observing a caregiver

orientation. The session will also provide an opportunity to

learn with other franchise owners and Area Representatives,

as well as learning about best practices from seasoned

professionals and the company founder, Michael Newman.

Weeks 6-11: Post Training focuses on training modules

designed to prepare franchise owners for field training and

the opening of their businesses. The modules concentrate

on developing relations with assisted living communities,

networking in the marketplace, public relations, staffing,

development accounts listings, and one-on-one coaching

to prepare you for opening day. Like Pre Training, Post

Training is divided into modules that are completed via

self-disciplined study applications, one-on-one coaching,

and informational webinars.

Week 12: Field Training is an opportunity for the franchisee

and trainer to work together in the market during a three

day session. The training session will include a review of

the market and an account breakdown. During the three

day Field Training session, the franchisee and trainer will

make marketing calls on referral sources, including hospitals,

skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, physicians,

and others. The franchisee and trainer will also make

marketing calls on other referral sources, such as funeral

homes, financial planners, durable medical equipment

companies, and other similar companies. The franchisee

will follow up on contracts needing to be signed, and will

meet with communities to discuss supplemental care for

their residents. The franchisee will also attend a

networking meeting and discuss plans for volunteering.

Finally, the franchisee and trainer will review the strategic

plan, advertising budget, and 60-day action plan for the local market.

Ongoing Support: As an Always Best Care franchisee,

you're never alone! Your Area Representative, based near

you, will provide on-going training and support as you need it.

Plus, from our corporate headquarters, we'll conduct an on-going

series of webinars on a variety of topics to help you every step of the way.
