You can take your business to your customers

Homecare is just one of many options in elderly care franchising. You will be able to meet your clients in the comfort of their own homes and provide the care they need in a setting where they feel secure. Right at Home is an example of an elderly care franchise opportunity on offer that will allow you to run your business in this way.

Right at Home’s premium quality home care and companionship services are highly personalised and go the extra mile to help people to enjoy living happily and independently in their own homes.

By carefully matching clients to a small, consistent team of caregivers, this proven business model supports people to live as they would choose – addressing their social and emotional needs, as well as their practical and physical support requirements.

This is a multiple award-winning franchise, which has followed a measured growth strategy over its 10 years of UK trading. Right at Home will only offer a franchise after a thorough two-way evaluation process, and this has helped it achieve a fantastic track record for building successful SMEs.

Right at Home is ideally suited to someone with a keen ambition to build a business that’s going to have a positive impact on their local community; someone who enjoys managing a team and delivering stand-out customer service. Previous sector experience is not required.

“When it came to Right at Home, it pretty much instantly felt like, OK, this is the one. They were so friendly, so welcoming and completely open with us at every stage”

– Sam Wright, franchise owner, Right at Home High Wycombe

Creative skills could be useful

Some people may have a view that elderly care is simply about helping people with their mobility and day-to-day tasks, but it can take many forms. Some elderly care franchises use creative tools to help improve people’s quality of life. If you have creative skills and want to make a difference, elderly care franchise opportunities with Musica and Musical Moments could chime well with you. These franchise partners use music and movement to help the elderly and those living with dementia by enriching their lives.

The franchise fee depends on the company and can vary greatly

The franchise fee covers your initial administrative costs for the franchise and can also go towards any training and marketing you may need. It is your investment for starting a franchise and, like in all industries, the amount can vary greatly between different companies. While some may start at a few thousand pounds, others can cost six figures or even more. It’s important to identify your budget before you pick an elderly care franchise opportunity, as this will influence your final decision. With some franchises, you may be able to get finance to help you get started — Home Care Preferred care agency will even match you up with suitable banking partners. Even if you don’t have the full franchise fee for your preferred opportunity at your disposal, there are still options for you to explore.
