Trends Update: Home Care Trend Number 1 – Private Equity and Industry Consolidation

  1. Private Equity and Industry Consolidation are shaping the landscape of home care. We have observed major changes in home care over the past five years as private equity and venture capital firms have entered our industry and acquired software companies, home care franchise organizations, and large independent home care companies.  This is shifting the nature of competition in many local markets.

All of our research at Leading Home Care, and our work monitoring the forces and trends that are shaping the future of home care, suggest that this is the leading change that will affect your future as an owner or CEO of a top tier home care company.
