Sisters-in-law, Gabriela and Alina Moldovan, explain why they decided to become SylvianCare franchisees
“Both Alina and myself have a background in health and social care, as well as previous management experience. When it came to deciding to start a business, we wanted one which would not only provide us with the income levels that we sought but also one where, due to our previous work experience, we could give something back to our local community,” explains Gabriela Moldovan.
The provision of a domiciliary care service and earning potential of SylvianCare’s franchise model fulfilled both those criteria.
She continues: “As sisters-in-law, we were also attracted by the fact that our franchisor was also a family-owned business run by a brother and sister team. As our franchisor, both Silviu and Cristina have been invaluable sources of knowledge and support to call upon whenever we needed help and advice.
“The training that we have received has been excellent. Whilst we both had previous care knowledge we had no experience of setting up a business, marketing for clients or the dedicated operating systems involved. SylvianCare has supported us in all of the above and has always been there when we needed guidance.
“Running a domiciliary care business is not a walk in the park. There are daily challenges that you need to deal with but we can always rely on our franchisor who has undoubtedly faced those same challenges, for advice.
“We look forward to having a long-lasting relationship with SylvianCare and to adding additional territories to our existing location as our business grows.”
