How does the franchise model work?
Guardian Angel Carers is by your side – every step of the way.
The domiciliary care franchise provides the business owner with everything they need to set up and grow a sustainable and profitable franchise. Its models build in profit to create a solid financial outlook for motivated people who want to run a franchise.
The business franchise owner is provided with a high ratio of personal and business support, with access to Guardian Angel Carers’ expert team – across all functions – as they set up and then manage their home care franchise branch and services, giving them peace of mind while they deliver outstanding care.
You’ll also be joining a friendly team, who are all keen to share knowledge and support each other in their collective desire to be an industry leader in in-home care.
Guardian Angel Carers doesn’t just say – it does. The company’s HQ rolls up its sleeves to run its award-winning and Care Quality Commission outstanding (awarded in 2018) branch.
It means the company is a family that both understand and (as any parent company should) leads by example by providing compassionate care. This proactive approach means Guardian Angel Carers can positively and continually evolve its home care services so that you can be the leading home care provider in your territory.
Spelthorne home care branch franchisee Lou Cobban says: “Christina and the HQ franchise team will always talk about ‘we’ - ‘we’ are going to do this, ‘we’ will achieve this, ‘we’ will do that. It really makes me feel like we’re a team.”
You can meet Guardian Angel Carers’ franchise founder, team and members of the franchise family at the company’s regular webinars.
What type of franchisee is Guardian Angel Carers looking for?
The company wants to recruit like-minded, passionate, talented people – from business backgrounds or care backgrounds – who can lead to succeed with energy and compassion and help Guardian Angel Carers grow its friendly, positive and enabling home care services that offer first-class assistance for clients.
Franchisees don’t require a care background to join Guardian Angel Carers and run successful businesses, but the company believes it’s important that you care about owning a franchise that can make a difference and have a positive impact on your community.
You will need to have leadership qualities that can inspire, a drive to innovate, astute business acumen and be fast to problem solve. You should also be willing to roll up your sleeves and embrace all aspects of running a home care business and support a team whose work is mentally and emotionally demanding, but incredibly rewarding.
What training and support is provided?
Every day you’ll feel valued and involved as a member of an inclusive business that welcomes you, your ideas and values your contribution.
Mentoring, initial and ongoing training, expert advice and coaching to suit individual circumstances are a continual and integral part of the way Guardian Angel Carers works.
Continued support is something the company provides for every member of its CareAngel, HQ and franchise network. Every franchisee will also receive the support of an external, independent coach to enhance their professional development and franchise plan.
Guardian Angel Carers has created comprehensive programmes for care training that you and your CareAngels will use, plus access to employee well-being programmes. The company is proud to be shortlisted for the Great British National Care Awards 2020 in the Care Employer of the Year category.
