The award-winning Guardian Angels Carers franchise model provides potential for outstanding profitability in an evergreen sector, not to mention immense satisfaction from helping others
Guardian Angel Carers is an award-winning private home care enterprise, founded by inspiring double Olympian and entrepreneur Christina Handasyde Dick. As an alternative to residential care homes, the company’s mission is to help clients live independently in the comfort of their own homes for longer.
Care needs never stop
The Guardian Angel Carers (GAC) franchise network is rapidly expanding, providing more opportunities for exceptional home care throughout the country. The care sector has proven to be resilient, recession and pandemic-proof, as care needs never stop. Guardian Angel Carers’ proven model, based on 10 years of owned branch experience, has profitability built in. Driven by insight from the experienced head office team, franchise owners have the unique opportunity to be a part of a growing industry that survives and thrives in any economic climate.
Profit, purpose and pride
As well as seeing profits, in some cases 400 per cent ahead of target, business owners have the chance to make a real difference in the lives of the people they serve.
GAC franchisee Tim illustrates the sense of pride he feels in running his own home care business: “For me, the high point is bringing people out of hospital, knowing what a difference that compassionate care can make to the quality of life for that person.”.
Franchise owner Davide says: “I feel much more fulfilled inside because I am so proud of what we do. To help people is a great feeling.”
GAC’s CareAngels provide a wide range of support, from companionship over a cup of tea, to full-time live-in care. Care needs are tailored to each client as it’s a bespoke service.
Business, leadership and care delivery training
Franchisees receive outstanding support as they embark on the journey of becoming business owners. Franchise owner Alex praises the specialist care training given to new franchisees, saying “it gives us a unique insight into client needs and an understanding of who we need in our business to help us thrive.”
Franchisees are coached and supported throughout the CQC process, meaning even those from a non-healthcare background are able to pass and begin trading.
The award-winning online and face-to-face training includes marketing, business performance, leadership and people management. It allows franchisees to outperform the competition.
Welcoming talent from a range of sectors
The growing network of Guardian Angel Carers franchisees includes people with backgrounds from all sectors, from health care to business and even aviation. If you are process-driven, compassionate and possess strong leadership skills, you have the potential to lead a thriving home care franchise.
Founder Christina Handasyde Dick emphasises the merits of owning your own business: “Managing an innovating business and team will challenge, stimulate and produce the best of your leadership skills.”
