Healthy operating profits, award-winning support and a rewarding opportunity to change the way older people are cared for in the UK
Home Instead Senior Care offers a business opportunity like no other, delivering non-medical quality care and companionship to older people in their own homes.
The company provides franchisees with a proven model that delivers both outstanding care and outstanding results; put simply, Home Instead is making lives better for everyone.
There are now over 200 franchises in the UK and the global company operates in 12 countries with over 1,200 offices worldwide.
A rapidly ageing population means there are high levels of demand for Home Instead’s services. As a result, Home Instead franchisees enjoy huge growth opportunities.
Across the UK network, the franchise business supports more than 14,000 clients and employs in excess of 9,700 CAREGivers.
Home Instead has over 50 ‘Outstanding’ ratings from inspections by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for the care they provide, more than any other home care provider.
The franchise has a host of awards and accolades and in 2019 was named the UK’s No. 1 in the Elite Franchise top 100 for the second successive year. It is also the No.1 most recommended group in the Homecare.co.uk 2018 awards.
Home Instead is the only care company to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category. This was in recognition of the relationship-led approach the company adopts and their focus on quality and companionship.
Home Instead has consistently achieved five star rating in the Workbuzz (formerly Smith & Henderson) annual Franchisee Satisfaction survey. The 5 Star rating demonstrates that franchisees are highly satisfied with their business model, the support they receive and are truly engaged with the Home Instead ethos and all it stands for.
Home Instead is a management franchise so no care experience is necessary. But if you are caring and compassionate and have the skills to be an effective leader, you can embrace their exceptional business model. As the owner you will be responsible for business growth, with a team of care professionals managing and delivering the quality care.
Franchisees have the benefit of a highly experienced national office team which provides specialist and ongoing support including business development, marketing, care, quality, finance, IT and standards teams. There is a 4:1 ratio of franchise offices to national office employees, one of the highest in the sector, so support is always available.
New owners will receive comprehensive ongoing training including New Owner, 90 and 180-day development programmes held at national office.
There are territories currently available throughout the UK and a small number of resale opportunities.
If you have entrepreneurial flair and a genuine desire to support older people to live independently, please just get in touch – we would love to speak to you and help you on the path to setting up your own homecare business.
