The UK’s leading home care franchise is continuing to grow – delivering companionship-led home care services to elderly people across local communities
Since launching in the UK in 2005, Home Instead has grown its franchise network to 240-plus offices, welcoming caring entrepreneurs to grow their own successful home care businesses while making a real difference in the lives of older people.
Home care is a growing sector. The UK has an ageing population, most of whom will at some point require care. Home care keeps older people in their homes, where we all want to be - while delivering vital care and companionship.
The pandemic has highlighted the benefits of keeping older people at home, and the growth that the care sector has witnessed in the past year alone is staggering.
A third of Home Instead offices in England are rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the highest rating possible for a care provider. The company was also named the Best Home Care Group in the Home Care Awards for 2021.
Home Instead also holds the top spot in the Elite Franchise Top 100, winning for the fourth time. It was also named ‘Gold Franchisor of the Year’ for 2021 in the British Franchise Association awards for providing unrivalled support and nurturing a collaborative culture.
The Home Instead network is strengthened by the initiatives and partnerships spearheaded by its national office team.
A partnership with Parkinson’s UK has seen Home Instead develop a bespoke training programme for its Care Professionals, allowing them to deliver more specialised care to clients living with Parkinson’s.
Home Instead has also partnered with Boots UK to become the first home care provider listed on the retailer’s health hub, helping to boost the profile of home care more widely and letting people know it’s an option within their local area.
Support and training
Home Instead franchisees receive ongoing support from the 80-strong, award-winning, national office team.
The company has nurtured a collaborative culture between their franchisees, with the network benefiting from a wealth of peer support and guidance – including regional meetings, review groups and annual conferences where franchisees can connect and share best practices.
Resales and multi-units
As an established franchise, a handful of Home Instead franchisees are reaching retirement age and looking to sell their successful businesses.
Home Instead resales are perfect for business-minded people who can see the market potential of an ageing population and have the skills required to take an already successful enterprise to new heights.
The company is also proud to have franchisees who have gone on to buy multiple franchise units and expand their businesses, which in turn enables them to care for more people.
