Discover the top 10 care and elderly service franchises in the UK

Discover the top 10 care and elderly service franchises in the UK

With the ageing populations of Western countries increasing yearly, there has never been a better time to franchise in this booming sector

1. Ableworld

Mobility retailer Ableworld has been offering its trusted brand and proven model as a franchise since 2008.

The market for mobility equipment is growing because of the unprecedented growth in the number of elderly people in the UK. For example, the number of people aged 65 and over is currently 11 million, a figure that’s set to rise by 50 per cent in the next 20 years, while the 9.4 million people with a disability is approximately 18 per cent of the UK population.

As the population ages and people live longer, the need for products to help with mobility or illness increases, including stairlifts, rise and recline chairs, mobility scooters and a host of smaller aids that help people live more comfortable and active lives.

Ableworld franchise director Paul Boniface says: “We see franchising as our main engine of growth. By the time we reach our medium-term goal of 60-70 retail outlets, at least 70 per cent will be franchise owned.”

Right at home

Right at Home is an award winning home care company whose clients are empowered to enjoy their independence and live the way they want to.

10. Joscocare

Joscocare

A care and nursing agency that supplies temporary staff to the health care sector, Joscocare was launched in 2013.

Just four years later the business has more than 200 employees and contractors and is expanding its services around the UK.

Company founder and managing director Jos Shaju explains: “I couldn’t find any other recession proof business in a market that had as much potential as the health care sector.

“The country’s care need is increasing every year, due to increasing life expectancy and a number of other factors, and the government is overhauling the way care is delivered.

This, coupled with the need for people to fit their work around their family and other commitments, means more people are deciding to work independently or through an agency.

“The company’s ongoing success is in large part due to the dedication and commitment of our employees - and the trust of our clients.”

Joscocare’s commitment to quality and transparency is underpinned by its membership of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation.

As well as developing permanent recruitment solutions and domiciliary care services together with the agency staff provision, Jos is in the process of recruiting franchisees so he can roll out the business across the UK.

“Experience in care or nursing, either as a business owner or senior manager, would be an advantage, but is not essential for this franchise,” he says. “What I’m looking for in potential franchisees is passion, drive, energy, motivation and the will to succeed.”

What you need to know

Investment level

: an initial franchise fee of £19,500.

What you get

: full training; initial and ongoing support; everything needed to establish your office, including software, policies, procedures and marketing and recruitment materials; initial stock of uniforms and branded merchandise.
