Provide care at home to the elderly and vulnerable

Provide care at home to the elderly and vulnerable

With Bluebird Care, you can turn over seven figures and help others while doing so

An extremely successful and rewarding business in a flourishing industry is possible by becoming a business owner with Bluebird Care.

A Bluebird Care franchise provides you with massive earning potential and a feeling of worth as you help the vulnerable in your community. You’ll also benefit from award-winning support from experienced teams and a pool of wisdom from more than 220 existing Bluebird Care business owners.

The market

Bluebird Care provides care at home to the vulnerable and elderly throughout the UK.

Its care teams make home visits to customers and provide a range of domiciliary care services. They keep the elderly safe at home - and this is exactly where the elderly want to stay.

The recent pandemic has shown that the most vulnerable are safer at home, where infection control is easier to manage. Bluebird Care has seen an increase in demand for care at home services as a result.

This coupled with the fact that the ageing population is increasing means interest in the home care sector has never been greater and so there’s never been a better time to start a home care franchise.

The opportunity

Bluebird Care’s more mature businesses enjoy up to a £6 million turnover, whereas a start-up tends to begin at £250,000. Many business owners achieve such great success that they buy multiple territories to further maximise the opportunity.

The territories typically consist of 150,000-200,000 residents and within this is an ageing population as well as team members to recruit.

Jane Perry, franchise owner of Bluebird Care Edinburgh, Glasgow South and Ayrshire, says: “My husband John and I purchased Bluebird Care Edinburgh in 2007. I knew nothing about the care sector, so it was a steep learning curve.

“We purchased Bluebird Care Glasgow South in 2012 and Ayrshire in 2021. Now we have around 150 staff and more than 200 customers ranging in age from 31 to over 100.”
