This ensures it can look after its clients, even when its caregivers aren’t there
Home Instead is a franchise whose proven business model delivers both outstanding care and outstanding results for franchisees. Put simply, the company is making lives better for everyone.
Caring is at the heart of everything Home Instead does, which is reflected in its numerous care sector accolades, including ranking as the number one most recommended care company in the homecare.co.uk awards.
High levels of demand
Our rapidly ageing population means there are high levels of demand for home care. This presents an opportunity for franchisors to tap into this thriving ‘silver economy’ to deliver new business models based around providing in-home care.
A resounding 90 per cent of older people want to continue to live at home and, as a result, Home Instead franchisees enjoy huge growth opportunities.
The best of care with the best of technology
Home Instead has always provided the highest levels of care and companionship, personalised to the individual client. Although the main way of delivering this is through its network of franchisees and their caregivers, the company is also leading the way in terms of the use of sophisticated technology in-home care.
Ruth Brown, director of business development at Home Instead, explains: “We’re committed to the use of ‘high tech, high touch’ technology to complement the care we provide. This in no way replaces human care, but instead enhances and reinforces it.”
Preparing for the future
Home Instead has been busy exploring, developing and implementing powerful care solutions using technology. These ensure it can ‘keep an eye’ on its clients, even when its caregivers aren’t there.
In addition to providing an extra layer of protection for the client, this technology also gives the client’s family a sense of reassurance and peace of mind, as they can access the data at any time.
“With an ever-increasing elderly population, the home is more and more likely to take the place of the hospital for many people in the future,” Ruth says. “Technology will never replace people, but it can enable us to provide our clients with extra protection, help and even enjoyment when our caregivers aren’t there.”
She adds: “Our franchisees have access to all the support they need to help them grow their own business. We invest heavily in our franchisees and their wellbeing so that they can provide the best of care for their clients, their employees and importantly themselves.”
