Trusted in over 200 territories, Seniors Helping Seniors is looking for people with big hearts and big ambitions
No previous care experience is required to become a Seniors Helping Seniors management franchisee.
Overheads are the lowest in the sector and the feel-good factor is immense.
Sally Wilse co-owns Seniors Helping Seniors UK with husband Christian Wilse.
Doing the right thing
She explains: “The only way for businesses to succeed is to do the right thing. That means taking care of your customers, your teams and taking care of everything in your supply chain.
“The management team had careers in corporates and when we came to franchising it was to improve business practices. “Every day we strive to make business straightforward, respectful and sensible. Our franchisees love it.
“The pandemic stretched all care companies and I’m so proud how we rose to the challenge. “We wasted no time in getting organised and our franchise partners are getting the praise they deserve.”
The care sector was in crisis long before the pandemic and with society ageing fast two things happen: the need for elderly care services increases and there are more older people looking for relevant work.
When the worker resource is analysed, the Seniors Helping Seniors model fits well. One in six people have cared for loved ones and professional carers working traditionally get burned out.
Seniors Helping Seniors provides peer-to-peer support, which focuses on companionship care, supporting independence and well-being, but nothing medical.
Christian says “We win care awards, customer service awards and we’re signed up to the Good Business Charter.
“We just won the Against All Odds accolade from the Living Wage Foundation, which is for organisations that have shown leadership in industries with high levels of low pay.
“The award recognises some of the many improvements we have driven. We are very proud.” As the only domiciliary elderly care provider that for over 23 years has focused on hiring ‘experts by experience’ to support people needing help to live well and safely in their own homes, Seniors Helping Seniors says it offers a one-of-a-kind franchise.
Returns are high for business owners. Trusted in over 200 territories, the company is looking for people with big hearts and big ambitions.
You need a drive to help others, as well as a drive to succeed in business. Seniors Helping Seniors would like to hear from people wanting to open a business in South East and East UK.
You can look forward to sustainable, recession-proof earnings, the pride of hiring older people in well-paid jobs they love and delivering elderly care your clients will rave about.
