Pittsburgh ComForCare Franchise Owner Wins Major Award

Providing compassionate, high-quality services is the backbone of what every ComForCare in-home senior care franchise does. That dedication gets noticed, as it recently did for Pittsburgh ComForCare franchise owner Anna Zaydenberg. She was named a Franchisee of the Year by the International Franchise Association (IFA).

As the world’s oldest and largest organization representing franchising worldwide, the IFA is an industry leader and is closely followed by franchisors and entrepreneurs who are looking to launch their own businesses. So, when it gives an award honoring those who have demonstrated excellence in the franchising community, it’s a big deal.

HONOR IS LATEST FOR THIS ACCOMPLISHED ENTREPRENEUR

Since 2008, Zaydenberg has operated a ComForCare in-home senior care franchise in Pittsburgh, which is now the largest non-medical home care provider in Allegheny County. She currently serves on ComForCare’s Franchise Advisory Council, allowing her to provide significant input on how to grow and improve the ComForCare brand. Prior to this honor, Zaydenberg has received ComForCare’s 2017 Franchise of the Year, as well as the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Community Service for Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

“It’s such an honor to receive this award from the IFA,” says Zaydenberg. “I love the opportunities I get to serve my community through ComForCare every single day. Franchising has allowed me to build relationships with so many different kinds of people and challenged me in figuring out how I can fully serve my clients, so they can live their best life possible.”

AWARDS COME AT HIGH-PROFILE WASHINGTON GATHERING

Zaydenberg was recognized at IFA’s Franchise Action Network Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., last September, an event that brought together more than 400 franchise business leaders to raise awareness with policymakers on the industry’s continued successes and economic contributions.

“IFA is proud to recognize Anna for her extraordinary story and success,” said Robert Cresanti, IFA President and CEO. “Franchise businesses are an engine of economic growth across America, in a large part due to the hard work of tens of thousands of franchise business owners like Anna. As Washington looks to continue our economic growth, policymakers would do well to remember that franchising is making a difference across our country.”

ComForCare is a successful, multifaceted business that offers peace of mind and improved quality of life for senior citizens and their families through support around life’s everyday tasks, and also through exciting and innovative programs such as DementiaWise®.a comprehensive care approach for people with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia that focuses on accentuating the positive by supporting and encouraging remaining skills and abilities; Joyful Memories, an interactive, singalong program that uses the power of music to create connections and positive outlets for emotional expression. ComForCare’s other differentiators include in-home nurse assessments, customized care plan development and ongoing evaluation to anticipate and plan for changes, all based on the client’s interests, hobbies, skills and abilities that provide joy and purpose in their life.

Q&A with Lori Vrcan, Franchisee of CarePatrol (Franchise Chatter)

Lori Vrcan, Franchisee of Charlotte, South Carolina, previously worked with a national senior living community as a sales and marketing manager. In that position, she was most impressed with her interactions with CarePatrol. Each client referred was pre-qualified and a good fit for the senior living community in terms of needs, budget and personal interests. After she and her husband Todd did further research, they decided not only would buying a CarePatrol franchise be a great investment, but it was a meaningful change and the opportunity to work together and help seniors.

The Cost of Keeping Caregivers and their Clients Safe During a Pandemic

According to the CDC, the risk for severe illness from COVID-19 among adults increases with age, with older adults at highest risk. That makes the health and safety of the caregivers who look after them all the more important. And it is the responsibility of those employing the caregivers to ensure they have the resources to do their job safely.

How COVID-19 Changed Our Business Model for The Better (IFA)

When COVID-19 started to infiltrate the U.S, we were faced with the same questions so many businesses were forced to address: How do we keep our team and our customers safe? And how do we continue operating to meet demand? The answer that was never in our playbook was to change our whole business model. And we had to do it quickly.
