Build a business for yourself, not by yourself
At Kare Plus we believe that by working in partnership with the wider care sector, nationally and locally, we can build positive relationships and deliver real, workable solutions to today’s challenges.
Part of what sets Kare Plus apart from other care providers and recruiters, is that we offer a model built around multiple revenue streams. This means that where other franchisors will set you up with a business, we will support you to grow and adapt to your local market.
With a prestigious history in the sector and well-established links with numerous national healthcare organisations; we empower franchise owners to make a positive difference across local communities, on a national scale.
Established in 1989, Kare Plus has almost 30 years of experience in providing a wide range of healthcare services.
Kare Plus Group Managing Director, Steve Welsh and CEO, Tom Roe began their Kare Plus journey as franchise owners with the organisation in 2007. Using the knowledge gained from owning and operating a Kare Plus franchise, Steve and Tom acquired the brand. Since then, they have built the business by working with an expert management team and utilising their unique understanding of what a healthcare franchisee needs. Today, Kare Plus is a thriving network of over 90 Kare Plus businesses across the United Kingdom.
With an aging population and a high demand for skilled nurses across the UK, Kare Plus has positioned itself as an industry leader, delivering quality healthcare both in establishments and people’s own homes. Unlike many of our competitors Kare Plus is privately owned, this means that we do not answer to shareholders or banks and our growth has been entirely organic, based on our reputation for uncompromising quality of care rather than a “business at all costs approach”.
Kare Plus provides tailored homecare services to local communities across the UK, all provided by taking a person-centred approach. This approach to care means our service meets the diverse needs and preferences of people living in the community and subsequently promotes wellbeing. This is in addition to providing nurses, healthcare assistants and ancillary staff to private and public healthcare establishments, such as hospitals, nursing homes and medical centres. The support our staff provides is essential to maintaining the safety and quality of patient care.
The healthcare industry has changed a great deal since we started, and we believe it is vital that Kare Plus continues to adapt and innovate in order to stay ahead of the competitors and deliver positive results for all our clients and customers. As a business that is owned by a former franchisee, we understand the importance of dedicated support and operational guidance.
With the demand for Kare Plus franchise opportunities increasing, driven by strong sector demographics and market conditions such as an aging population and an increase in the demand for temporary staffing solutions, now is the perfect time to fulfil the increasing need for private healthcare services. Whether this is to provide temporary staffing solutions in addition to homecare or if you wanted to solely concentrate on the delivery of homecare services, Kare Plus provides you with the ability to invest in a business opportunity which meets the scope of your personal ambition.
Our Homecare Offer – Flexibility combined with a lower investment level makes the Kare Plus homecare franchise model ideal for the entrepreneur that wants to deliver quality care in people’s own homes. £25,000 + VAT with an additional minimum working capital of £30,000.
Our Dual Model Offer - As well as delivering care in a person’s own home, our dual model franchisees can also supply care into residential and nursing homes. Allowing the franchisee to run two, separate but linked business models out of one office, increasing stability and adaptability. The franchise fee is £40,000+ VAT, with an additional minimum working capital of £50,000.
Due to our experience and proven business format we have been able to develop close working relationships with many major UK banks, allowing potential franchisees the option of a loan that covers up to 70% of the total cost and the ability to break even within the first year.
Why franchise with us?
The changes in our UK healthcare system have had a direct, yet positive impact on the private healthcare service operators that are able to offer cost effective solutions. The Kare Plus business model has been carefully designed to provide the customer with a reliable one stop-solution.
This approach consolidates accounts and offers the chance to widen the scope for building working relationships and improving the lives of our service users and customers.
Kare Plus believes the future lies with the quality and performance of our franchise owners and our vision is to become the market leader in the provision of healthcare services. This will be achieved by recruiting and working closely with franchise owners, and by integrating new services into our model so that we can always meet the ever-changing requirements of the healthcare sector.
We seek to award our franchise opportunities to applicants who have a passion for providing quality service, who are driven by ambition and who have the experience to grow a substantial and rewarding business.
