Senior Concierge Industry & FQA
With modern technology and the latest medical breakthroughs, more and more seniors are remaining independent in their later years.
That growing demographic is creating a large market demand for senior concierge services -- a helping hand when friends and family aren't available.
Living Well founder Rachel Laws is a pioneer in this field, bringing together her professional and practical experience in a way that benefits seniors every day.
Now that opportunity can be passed on to you. For anyone who would rather be doing something for hearts and souls rather than corporate profits, a career as a senior concierge is the perfect mix of professional pride and personal touch. A senior concierge career is perfect for people who:
• Love working with seniors and their family members

What is a Senior Concierge?
A senior concierge assists seniors with non-medical activities that a son or daughter would normally handle. Please see the example lists of services a senior concierge handles for seniors.
Why are you called a Concierge?
The term concierge is an old term commonly used to describe a person in a hotel who can handle luggage, make reservations, and arrangements. This term is also used to describe someone who works inside of an assisted living facility for seniors. Many seniors are aging in their homes and need the same services a concierge would provide anywhere else.
Why enter the Senior Concierge Business?
Senior Concierge Services is a burgeoning field.The senior population is growing faster than the total population in every single state. Seniors are needing more help but often family members are dispersed and are unable to help as much as they would like to.
What kind of qualifications do I need to become a Senior Concierge?

How much money can an individual senior concierge make?
It's really up to you. The hourly rate can range to match what you need and what your clients are able to pay. It also depends on how much and how often you want or need to work. Generally, concierge professionals make anywhere from $40-$75 per hour (sometimes more or less, depending on the client and their needs and your location in the country).
How much will I need to devote to this business?
It's really up to you. In the beginning more time will be needed to make connections, and marketing yourself. As you begin to get clients the marketing time is reduced. You can choose your hours to fit your needs and the needs of your clients.
Is this a franchise? Why are you providing so much information about your business and not asking for any further commitment?
This is not a franchise and I'm not asking for anything financial beyond providing these classes to you. You will be your own boss and you have your own company name. Simply, we're interested in getting more people in this industry because there is so much of a need. We want people to think of a Senior Concierge as easily as people think of a plumber for a leak.
Will I receive a certificate of completion?
No, This is not a certificate program and you will not receive a certificate of completion at the end of the training program. This training is for your benefit to get you started in the business.
