According to Seniors Helping Seniors, Paul and Zoe are ideal franchise partners. They used to run their own award winning estate agency practice, while Zoe also used to work in the NHS and private medical practice. In addition, the couple have over 25 years’ personal experience of managing and coordinating care for close family.
As a result, Paul says: “We understand perfectly just how much time and planning this level of care requires.”
Christian Wilse, co-owner and director of Seniors Helping Seniors UK, says: “Repeatedly selling and finding homes for the same clients says a lot about their loving, caring natures. They epitomise going above and beyond to help others.
“Expanding to its fifth UK location in 2020 was a great way to celebrate Seniors Helping Seniors’ seventh birthday in the UK and 21 years as a global care brand worldwide.”
By investing in a proven home-based operation, Seniors Helping Seniors franchisees use their people management skills to do something worthwhile and reap the rewards of being their own boss. The brand has been hailed as: “taking the friction out of elderly care delivery on every level”.
“There is a huge need for our services and for the unique job opportunities in every location,” Christian says. “We’ve kept our franchise terms attractive because we’re more interested in attracting the right business partners than our own returns.
“Our plan is to encourage as many people as possible to open a Seniors Helping Seniors in their own communities in the south east and east UK and we have valuable territories available.
“We are in the sweet spot and people love to recommend our company. Franchisees focus on managing great elderly care and providing jobs for people who want to work into their later years. “Our carers are experienced. That’s what we mean by senior.
“We achieve outstanding outcomes to what often feels like very scary situations for families. When loved ones become frail and families live too far away or have demanding lives themselves, they need a care company to react fast and deliver what they promise. We are able to deliver because of our unique record for recruiting and keeping great carers.”
Seniors Helping Seniors is ranked among the top 20 most recommended care groups in the UK, while the NHS has described it as “perfect primary care” because it keeps people well and independent in their own homes.
The company does not provide nursing in terms of medical care or traditional nursing, thus carers and managers can focus on delivering exceptional services, matching experienced carers to clients according to their interests in order to stimulate activities and conversations.
