Qualicare Managed Homecare franchise complaints. Are you familiar with the Qualicare franchise? If so, please share a comment – positive or negative – below.
(originally published February 24, 2012) According to the Qualicare website, “Qualicare offers healthcare solutions for people struggling with life’s changes due to medical events. We help people stay at home when faced with acute or chronic illness or when challenged by aging. Qualicare provides guidance, support, hourly or live-in care and private nursing services.”
The Qualicare program was inspiredby the challenges founders Andrea and Wayne Nathanson’s faced when Wayne’s father, Nardy, was fighting a lengthy battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).
Qualicare franchise website claims it provides exceptional franchise support: “We are committed to every business owner in our system. Our priority is to make you successful, so that you represent our quality brand in an exceptional way.”
“We’re committed to your success, which means being available to answer your questions.” the website states. “In addition, we’ll follow-up with one-on-one coaching. Our coaches get involved in your territory, to help you realize the true benefits our business model offers. We’ll encourage your suggestions because every franchise owner is an important part of our team.”
However, we’ve received a complaint that tells a different story. An UnhappyFranchisee.com reader, who claims to be an early Qualicare franchisee, writes:
This is a post that I am writing to bring to everyone’s notice regarding Qualicare franchise. I would be obliged if you can get this published so that no other person faces the same issue as I have faced and Qualicare management addresses the concern of their franchise owners professionally:
“Qualicare has a dubious entity. When they offer their franchise they make so many promise that they will offer full technical support when anyone purchases their franchise but all these are fake promises. I purchased qualicare franchise to serve needy people but qualicare management is just there to make money, all they do is extract franchise money from people like me and fill in their own pockets.
This gentleman Wayne Nathanson from Qualicare can easily entice you into purchasing the Qualicare franchise with his flowery verbiage but once you are a Qualicare franchise owner they just turn a blind eye towards the requirements essential of a franchise. Nathan Weber, who is the VP of Qualicare was so friendly and reachable when I had shown my interest of owning a Qualicare franchise. Nathan used to give me back to back calls and it seemed that Qualicare is here to really make a difference to the lives of senior citizens but the reality is that Qualicare is here just to make quick bucks by selling their franchise showing fake social responsibility.
If you really want to serve the senior community then please never go for Qualicare franchise, they are not the right people for serving the senior community. Qualicare management would be at their best behaviour when they want to sell their franchise to you but once you purchase their franchise they show their true colors. Wayne Nathanson and Nathan Weber never returned any of my calls when I wanted to talk to them regarding loopholes in Qualicare franchise functioning and now today I am regretting my decision of buying a Qualicare franchise.
All I want to say is that, please do not believe these Qualicare guys, they are a fake senior care organization who just want to make money by making fake promises.
The Qualicare franchisee complains that:
- Qualicare uses a slick sales pitch & friendly persona to close the franchise sale
- Qualicare does not provide promised franchise support
- Qualicare execs do not return calls from franchisees
- Qualicare execs are not available to discuss franchise operational problems
