This care franchise is looking for people with extraordinary hearts to open a care service making the headlines for all the right reasons
Two things are true in an ageing society: Millions of people need to work longer in flexible, local, well paid jobs that value their experience and millions of elderly people need help to live independently. Seniors Helping Seniors is right place, right time.
Calling on the services of a care company has become a necessity. By 2035 2.5 million people will live past their 85th birthdays. Support levels from social services are anything but certain and the type of care people want has changed.
The simple fact is, people like it best when they are helped by people they get on with and Seniors Helping Seniors carefully matches loving, experienced people with time on their hands to people who need some help to live independently in their own homes.
The same person visits. The client is in control, there is flexibility.
Seniors Helping Seniors is a 20-yearold care brand with a unique approach. Fully managing care to help families, people are helped by people who know how to support them to be enthusiastic, stay safe and well. Client and carer have a lot in common. Time and courtesies are put into every match.
Low-cost franchise offers for the South East and East of England attract people like Keith and Barbara Reddy to join the UK team. They opened their Seniors Helping Seniors franchise business in February 2019 to serve Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, West Malling and surrounding villages.
Christian Wilse, franchisor, started Seniors Helping Seniors in the UK in 2013 to disrupt the care sector. The response was overwhelming. BBC said the service is unique and offers greater understanding and empathy. The British Franchise Association has already upgraded the franchise.
Christian says: “Because Seniors Helping Seniors does not offer ‘personal care’, we have the time and flexibility to support independent li “Our terms appeal and they are a joy to operate. Carers love the work and we support them 100 per cent. o ‘personal care’ puts us out of scope for CQC, so our businesses save all the time and costs that comes with that. Our service follows CQC standards as a minimum. We are about being excellent and flexible for people. Clients rave about us.”
This is a generous spirited, efficient and trusted people business.
Seniors Helping Seniors is a top 20 most recommended home care group in the UK and care commissioning groups call it perfect primary care, signposted by charities, GPs and specialists.
Believing that no human should leave this earth without feeling love, dignity and compassion, the drive is to open in as many communities as possible.
Ethical franchising is the way to do that. These franchise terms and practises attract talented people like Keith and Barbara, who are looking to serve the community they love and secure a thriving future for themselves and their family at the same time.
Keith says: “The Seniors Helping Seniors franchise came to us as a real breath of fresh air.”
