In an exclusive interview with The African Courier, Godfrey Chukwuemeka Evurulobi, CEO of Gosab Care GmbH, explains the opportunities for self-employment in the care sector in Germany for Africans and how you can easily get started in the business.
The Nigerian-born entrepreneur runs three companies – Gosab Personalmanagement und Consulting, Gosab Care GmbH and Gosabflex GmbH, from Cologne with branches in Bergish Gladbach, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg.
He also introduces his company’s unique franchise system and how it gives beginners in the care business a “soft landing”.
The African Courier: What is a home or mobile health-care agency?
Godfrey Evurulobi: Home or mobile health-care agencies are companies approved by law to render care services to people at their homes, making it possible for such persons who regularly need help in everyday life to stay at their various homes to be cared for.
What are the duties of the home care workers?
They help their patients and customers with eating and drinking and dressing; they help with personal hygiene, cleaning the apartment; they help with wound care or injections, offer advice on nursing issues etc.
Why should I start a home care business in Germany?
People in Germany are getting older and the demand for outpatient care services is growing. If you are looking for a meaningful job and like being there for others, starting a nursing service might be right for you.
What does the business require of its practitioners? What does it take to successfully run a home care company?
In addition to our organisational processes and concepts, the emotional and psychosocial competence of the employees are of paramount importance for any care business to succeed. They should be able to empathize with the patients and support the customers individually and care for them according to their personal situation.
What support does your company offer those entering the business?
We offer them what I call soft landing! Meaning that they will ride on our years of experience to start a business in the care sector in Germany. As you know the health sector is the most regulated sector in Germany. With us as your partner, it would be very easy getting started in the business.
What are the steps to starting a home care business?
All the requirements as stipulated by the law must be fulfilled. These include employing qualified managers and workers, securing approval from the nursing and health insurance companies, registering at the health department, to mention but a few.
The growing demand for home care has led to more companies entering the market. How can a newcomer stand out and attract clients?
