Career plans after COVID-19 – could you begin your own business?

Change Text Size A A A

The last few months have left a lot of people reflecting on their current situations and wondering about their future career plans. For many, this could mean returning to their existing roles, but for others it may be a chance to hit the reset button and consider a change of direction.

One of the biggest shifts seen in health and social care during this period has been the amazing enthusiasm of so many people wanting to volunteer. Whether it’s been to deliver shopping and food parcels to vulnerable people, or help in the recovery efforts of those affected by COVID-19, volunteers have opted to give their time and energy to help others.

Vital care services are needed to support those who require a little extra assistance in their daily lives. Despite the great difficulties at this time, however, the sheer dedication of care workers and service operators is allowing those most at risk to remain safe and comfortable within their own homes.

Supporting people in the community has never been more important than it is now. If you’re thinking of operating your own business and managing your own team of care workers, now might be the ideal time to plan ahead for when the coronavirus threat begins to subside.

Providing home care services

Even before the coronavirus situation, demand for care services was rapidly increasing. This is because many of us are living longer and preferring to maintain as much independence as possible in our own homes. Home care workers in the community can provide an essential lifeline to those in need of extra assistance in their daily lives.

Now more than ever, care and support is needed for the more vulnerable members of our society. Not only because of our ageing population, but also to protect those most at risk of infectious diseases going forward. With the spotlight firmly on social care in the near future, safe and effective services will continue to grow in demand.

To help people within your community, working in the home care sector is a positive step in the right direction. What’s better, you can help to bring vital services to local people by operating your own home care business – especially useful if your area is presently short on key community care workers.

Testimonials

"We chose a franchise because it gives support on time-consuming issues such as policy, procedures and legislation, so it left us free to provide care. When we started out eight years ago, we were the sole carers, as well as looking after the marketing the business. Today we have 60 staff providing care for more than 100 children and older people."

Caron Oldreive & Cheryl Hawksworth, Doncaster

"I started off as a carer and then worked as a manager in the office of a care franchise, so I chose a franchise when I decided to start my own business. Care is heavily regulated and when I started the regulations were in flux, so I wanted the support of a franchisor. I’ve now got about 100 service users and have built up a team of 40 staff. I need much less franchisor support now, but it’s always there if needed and I talk regularly with other franchisees. We swap tips, advice and ideas so the franchise comes with a useful network."
