What is IKOR®?
IKOR® is different from other businesses that serve the needs of the elderly and disabled.
- No Direct Care
- Act as Advocates for the Client
- Create & Oversee Client's Medical, Environmental, Legal and Financial Life Plans
With this approach in mind IKOR® provides a wide range of care management services; advocacy, guardianship, care planning and coordination, financial management and routine bill-payment services. IKOR® is a unique business opportunity allowing motivated franchise owners to provide a range of badly needed services – with the support of an established organization –making a positive impact on the lives of individuals and families in their communities.
Our in-house team of highly experienced Registered Nurse Patient Advocates and Personal Needs Coordinators provide custom services. Each client's Strategic Plan is based on the unique needs of that individual. The IKOR® Approach helps families manage both short-term health crises and long-term care issues for seniors and disabled adults and children.
Advocacy in all important life aspects:
Whether medical, environmental, or psychosocial, IKOR takes an integrated approach and provides an initial assessment, recommendations and referrals for care options, coordinated communications among care providers, ongoing quality assurance, and periodic reports and meetings with all parties involved (client, family, caregivers, etc.)
Guardian of person or estate:
From complete guardianship to a simple power of attorney, clients' best interests are always the primary focus when selecting the right solution for issues that require guardianship or other legal arrangements.
Together, your dedicated team can analyze and monitor all important aspects of the client's life, such as configuration of the living environment, assuring availability of necessary items, and the coordination of all prior, current, and future financial demands. The overall benefits you provide – and that make IKOR different from other service providers – include the fact that information and guidance are provided by a highly-skilled, single source, within a cost-conscious platform, and by a neutral party with whom both client and family members can feel comfortable.
What has IKOR® meant to its clients?
Everything we've done from the day we started IKOR was with the idea of expanding and offering our important advocacy services across the country. Franchising just always seemed to be a natural part of the overall plan. But now we need people like you to complete the picture. When you join IKOR® as a franchise owner, you will provide greatly needed advocacy and oversight services to meet the needs of clients in your own protected territory. But it's about much more than owning a business – it's about making an impact and creating a legacy. It's about having a passion and putting that passion to good use, by becoming a "voice" for the elderly and disabled. We hope you'll share our vision and dedication to providing critical advocacy services to people who need them most.
