The title of this article is self-explanatory. This article is all about reducing owner hours. We know from experience that being an agency owner doesn’t come with banker’s hours and is rarely a 9-5 job! However there is light at the end of the tunnel, and our team can help you reach the other side. Whether your agency is a new startup or a leader in your community, burnout is a problem, even for owners. Working too many hours can also have consequences for your mental and physical health. Visit this article to learn more about what this means for you.

Many times in our industry, when we think of burnout, our minds go first to caregivers and secondly to schedulers and admins. However, we neglect to consider the stress that agency owners bear each day. Our goal at SCBA is to improve the lives of everyone at your personal care agency; caregivers, administrators, clients, and yes, you, the owner and operator of your business!

We’re here to help alleviate some of the burdens you face and offer a wide range of solutions to meet your needs. Our team consists of former agency owners and operators, so we have been there. Our team is technology experts in the software you use daily to schedule the care for your clients. We’re constantly researching new software integrations in the industry to ensure that we offer our clients the best solutions.
