10 Great Reasons Why You Should Become A Home Instead Senior Care Franchisee
Home Instead Senior Care, the bfa HSBC Gold Franchisor of the Year, was brought to the UK in 2006 by Sam and Trevor Brocklebank and they are fast approaching 150 successful franchises across the UK. Home Instead’s success is built on a unique and focused approach to the care services it delivers. They are the only national care company to specialise in the delivery of at-home, non-medical care to older people.
Largest Home Care Provider For Older People
Home Instead Senior Care in the UK is part of a multi-million dollar international company. The company’s approach to care is very different to ‘one-size-fits-all’ care which sees providers delivering task-based care in short duration calls. The care focuses on what the client wants, at a time they want and by highly trained caregivers. There is great demand for their valuable home care services and this combined with our ageing population provides each franchisee with a great opportunity to grow their business year on year.
A Proven Management Franchise Model
The franchise model allows their franchisees not only to make a difference to the lives of older people in their community but also to build their own highly successful, rewarding and profitable business. The proven model is tried and tested across the globe in over seventeen countries and across 1,000 franchise offices and has been refined over many years of continuous growth.
Recognised And Established Global Brand
The business is recognised worldwide and is renowned for the outstanding support it provides to older people and their families. Everything they do is focused on older people and it is this focus which has been a major factor in making this such an established brand.
Providing Quality Award-Winning Care
Home Instead Senior Care has won many awards for the care it provides including numerous winners and finalists in the prestigious Great British Care Awards and they are the only national home care provider to have won the NHS Dignity in Care award. They are England’s leading homecare provider according to a Care Compliance Monitor report from the UK’s leading healthcare information specialist, Laing & Buisson. Specialising in providing non-medical care in the home for older people, the service is tailored to the needs of their clients and includes companionship, personal care and home help, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The company also provides respite, convalescence and specialised Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
Leading The Way In Thought Leadership
The company is leading the way in campaigning for better elderly care. Trevor Brocklebank, is a champion of elderly care issues, regularly visiting the House of Lords and House of Commons where he is actively involved in lobbying. He is a non-exec director of the UKHCA and was voted in to the Top 10 of the most influential people in social care. Trevor is also influential in the franchise industry and currently sits on the bfa Board of Directors and is regularly invited to share his knowledge and experience at numerous franchise events.
Franchisee Support Unique In The Industry
The quality of care Home Instead delivers is matched by the quality of support given to its franchise owners. Their 5-1 ratio of national office staff to franchisee is unique in the industry. The support ranges from business development, marketing, care standards, financial management and IT support to name but a few. Franchisees also share best practice with other Home Instead owners who they meet with on a regular basis, as well as at their annual two day conference.
First-Class Training For Owners And Their Teams
From day one franchise owners receive dedicated support starting with an initial 180 day bespoke training programme. There is then ongoing business development and care training for franchise owners and their teams. For example, they have specialist Alzheimer’s training which has been developed especially for Home Instead and they are the only home care provider in the country to have received accreditation from City & Guilds for a dementia training programme.
Be Part Of A Highly Commended Franchise Network – Gold Franchisor And Franchisee Award Winners
The company has been recognised in many franchise awards including the much sought after bfa HSBC franchise awards. Home Instead received the silver award in 2011 and 2012 and gold in 2013 for the bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year and their Wirral office won gold in 2011 for the bfa Franchisee of the Year. The company has also been recognised in the Smith & Henderson Best Franchise Awards for the Best Franchise System. Importantly these awards are based on the satisfaction feedback from franchisees.
Great Financial Returns And Support
Many people worry about financing their new franchise, but at Home Instead they will guide you through the process. Through their banking partners they will help you understand about financing a franchise and the support available to get started. Franchise owners can then go on and achieve solid levels of growth and the majority of their established owners are achieving net margins of 15% - 25%.
