Why is Right at Home a good investment?
People in care are not just looking for their immediate needs to be met. They are looking for care and companionship to improve their quality of life and support them to live the life they want with independence and dignity. Care that they can count on and trust.
According to a care sector report, in the UK nearly 4 million people under 65, and over 3.2 million people over 65, need support with at least one of their daily domestic tasks (UKHCA). 5.25 million people aged over 60 say they struggle with feeling lonely and isolated, more than half of over 80s suffer from severe loneliness.
There is a huge demand for these unmet care needs to be fulfilled, and the Right at Home model is perfectly placed to fill this care gap and provide significant financial rewards to franchisees. The brand is passionate about supporting its clients’ emotional and mental well-being, as much as their physical and practical needs.
Through its exceptional franchise business opportunity, Right at Home aims to always exceed expectations and the high quality of its services will drive the growth of the business. As a market leading care franchisor, current franchise owners are well-positioned to benefit from the brand’s reputation and to build a profitable future with long-term sustainability.
How big is the demand for care?
Exceptional care services continue to be in very high demand in the UK. There is an ever-increasing need for providers that can be trusted to put their clients’ needs first.
• 15 million over 65s live in the UK.
• 13 million+ people in the UK live with some form of disability.
• 9 out of 10 over 50s would rather receive care in their own homes (UKHCA).
• More than 7 million people require practical support to maintain their independence. The Care Quality Commission report suggests 1.4 million of these still don’t receive the right level of support they need.
