Business as it should be

Business as it should be

Sally Wilse, co-founder of Seniors Helping Seniors, explains why the company stands out in a crowded sector

Helper’s high is one of the outcomes you’ll experience and something you’ll be providing with Seniors Helping Seniors. We love everything about this work and even if you haven’t considered care before, we urge people to take the leap into elderly care. My background is in the media, as is fellow company co-founder Christian Wilse’s, and Seniors Helping Seniors appealed to us because it’s radically different.

This elderly care model is credited as having taken the friction out of the system. It’s very fulfilling and it’s business as it should be. Our adverts ask for a few ordinary people with extraordinary hearts. Is that you?

Companion care

Seniors Helping Seniors provides non-medical companion care and employs older people. As soon as you start talking about Seniors Helping Seniors, you’ll hear: “Yes do it!”, as the model is sustainable, much needed and future proof.

Our franchisees come from many different backgrounds and have a range of skill sets. The carers each business employs are either retired care professionals or people who have cared for loved ones. Because of their age and what they require from work, Seniors Helping Seniors carers are in a league of their own and a joy to work with.

The win-win is clients love being helped by a person they can relate to and Seniors Helping Seniors doesn’t have problems finding and retaining carers.

Driving new standards

We’ve always paid above the living wage and we’re proud of all our Kitemarks, awards and the recognition we receive for driving new standards. Franchisees and the people they employ say it’s the best job they have ever had.

Our franchise terms stand out in a crowded sector. Entry costs are low and the huge plus is the low running costs. Being non-medical and non-nursing care, we are out of the scope of the Care Quality Commission. Other benefits include low overheads because the business can be run from home and a growing client base that can be effectively reached.

We have consistently been awarded top 20 care group accolades through our customer recommendations, yet are small enough in the UK for every franchisee to have a significant impact on the business.

It’s a great team and everyone in the business gets the high that comes from having a voice and breaking the mould in the UK. Seniors Helping Seniors has been given coverage by the BBC and national press as a result of our outstanding approach to two huge national problems.

Well established

Seniors Helping Seniors is a well established, 20-year-old brand. The franchisors who opened the first Seniors Helping Seniors in the UK provide the company’s five-star training and support.

If you want a win-win opportunity in the care sector, join the 300-plus Seniors Helping Seniors franchisees who have said finding the company was like a breath of fresh air from the very first contact. We’d love to hear from you if you are in the east and south east of England.
