If you want to be part of a business that helps others, then investing in a care and elderly services franchise may be just what you need. Here are the top 10 care franchises in the UK

Kare Plus

Kare Plus has more than 70 branches across England and Wales providing nursing, care and support to public and private health care settings and to people in their own homes.

With an ageing population and increasing pressure on public health services, Kare Plus offers franchisees an opportunity to join the rapidly expanding and in demand private health care sector.

The company began in 1989 and has developed a proven UK model, guiding franchise owners through a five-year agreement with multiple service offerings and income streams - from providing nurses to care homes and private hospitals, to managing care workers looking after people in the local community who require care in their own homes.

From day one, Kare Plus franchise owners have access to clients through the company’s range of national contracts. With the help of their business development manager, they will also build relationships in their local area, procuring local contracts and clients to supply staff to.

With guidance from the award-winning support team as well as their BDM, recruitment of staff is achieved through a mix of traditional and digital marketing campaigns, local exhibitions and job board advertisements. To keep you, your local brand and your local community safe, all staff are subject to a strict compliance procedure and have access to ongoing training.

3. Apollo Care

Apollo Road

Founded in 2011 by health and social care professionals Cheryl and Susan White, Apollo Care is dedicated to providing a service that enables elderly people to retain a greater level of independence and remain living in their own homes for as long as possible.

During their time working as a community nurse and social care manager respectively, the sisters saw the need for a home care provider that focused on flexible, individualised care packages.

While visiting patients at home, Cheryl had witnessed the effects of social isolation on elderly people in her area. After contacting several providers in an attempt to access support for these people, Apollo Care was born.

Each office is owned and managed by a franchisee who shares a passion for caring. While many franchisees have some hiring and management experience, some have concentrated solely on the care side of their career.

To address potential skills gaps in this area, Apollo provides full support and advice to those who join the business, including systems and policy training at head office and office management training with an existing franchisee.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Investment level:

£16,000

What you get:

full training; marketing support; care planner software; staff uniforms; business set up help; ongoing human resources and management support; stationery; Care Quality registration.

This management franchise is built around a commitment to quality in order to achieve long-term profitability as the first choice provider of home care in the private sector. Right at Home is motivated to partner with the highest quality of franchise owners, not the highest number.

Consequently, it offers an opportunity to join a close team and benefit from being part of a highly engaged and supportive network, whose members add value to the Right at Home brand and reputation across the UK. Right at Home has one of the highest franchisee satisfaction ratings in the franchise industry. The strength of its systems has resulted in Right at Home UK receiving Five Star Franchise status for the last two years and being recognised as the British Franchise Association’s Emerging Franchisor of the Year in 2014.

New franchise owners don’t need previous sector experience, as they are supported to recruit experienced registered care managers as part of the comprehensive business support offered.

5. Ableworld

Ableworld

Ableworld has offered its trusted brand and proven model as a franchise business since 2008.

The company and its franchisees benefit from the unprecedented growth in the number of elderly people in the UK and the market for mobility equipment is buoyant and growing.

There are currently 11 million people aged 65 and over, a figure that’s set to rise by 50 per cent in the next 20 years, while 9.4 million people have a disability - approximately 18 per cent of the population.

For Ableworld and its network of franchisees, the figures underline the potential that exists in this sector. With an ageing population and people living longer, the need for products to help with mobility or illness increases. Products such as stairlifts, rise-and-recline chairs, mobility scooters and a host of smaller aids help people live more comfortable and active lives.

Paul Boniface, Ableworld’s franchise director, says: “We see franchising as our main engine of growth. By the time we reach our medium-term goal of 60-70 retail outlets, at least 70 per cent will be franchise owned.”

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Investment level:

£75,000

What you get:

extensive training; full support; operations manual; access to experienced industry mentors; advice on retail property purchase; newsletters; marketing launch pack.
