Nurse Entrepreneurship: Optimized Introduces Innovative Education Program for Nurses to Own Successful Residential Assisted Living Businesses

Published April 6, 2023

Optimized, a leading provider of residential assisted living (RAL), has introduced an innovative education program to help nurses achieve their dreams of owning successful RAL homes. The program offers support in property acquisition, licensing, and operations training, making it easier for nurses to enter this rewarding sector.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of people aged 65 and older is projected to nearly double from 52 million in 2018 to 95 million by 2060. As the baby boomer generation reaches retirement age, the demand for quality senior care continues to rise. The number of older adults with disabilities is expected to increase from 11 million in 2020 to 24 million in 2040, according to the Institute on Aging. This increase in demand for senior care is driving the profitability of the RAL business model.

Residential assisted living provides personalized assistance with daily activities such as dressing, bathing, and medication management. Unlike traditional nursing homes, RAL homes are smaller, more intimate, and provide a home-like environment for seniors. With the COVID-19 pandemic highlighting the risks of congregant living, personalized and smaller facilities have emerged as the new standard in senior care.

RAL homes offer a unique alternative to large, institutional facilities, much like Airbnb has disrupted the hotel industry. According to a report by McKinsey & Company, Airbnb's revenue growth from 2015 to 2019 was 35% annually, while the hotel industry's revenue grew by only 4% annually over the same period. This comparison shows the potential for disruptive business models like RAL to outpace traditional models in terms of revenue growth.

Nurses who act swiftly to position themselves in this emerging industry will be well positioned to benefit from this trend. According to a report by Senior Housing News, RAL homes can generate significant income, with the potential to earn $10,000-$20,000 per home per month.

The Optimized Education Program provides nurses with the necessary tools, resources, and training to start their own successful RAL homes without high upfront costs or franchise fees. Optimized Certification unlocks access to a range of discounted services through affiliate partners, including insurance partners, marketing service discounts, staffing program network access, potential private pay sponsorships, and proprietary tech to help manage the business.

"Our founder, Lindsay McLaughlin, is a licensed nurse and Residential Assisted Living expert. Her expertise and passion for providing quality care for seniors are at the heart of everything we do at Optimized," said a company spokesperson. "We believe that all seniors deserve to live their golden years in comfort, dignity, and with the highest level of care. That's why we have made it our mission to provide aspiring RAL owners with the resources and support they need to succeed in this growing industry."

Optimized is committed to supporting RAL homes and increasing their availability throughout North America. With the aging population on the rise, the RAL business model presents a significant opportunity for nurses who want to become entrepreneurs while also making a significant difference in the lives of seniors.
