Unregulated services get SureCare franchisees trading straight away

When you choose to franchise with SureCare, you can begin providing some basic services and earning income while you wait for approval from regulators to commence with larger care services.

Starting your own business in home care is often tricky because it’s not always possible to start trading straight away. Due to the nature of personal care, providers need to be certified by the national regulating body before being able to carry out the necessary jobs.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulating body for health and social care services in England, making CQC registration absolutely essential before you can support clients with home care. Unfortunately, completing CQC certification can take a while, potentially leaving your business stuck on the starting blocks when you’re ready and raring to get started.

This is why SureCare offers a range of unregulated services for franchisees to offer their clients. Whilst these services take a more hands-off approach to personal care, they can empower your new business to get trading as soon as you’re ready, without losing precious time or money as you wait for CQC approval.

SureCare’s unregulated services

Unregulated services are tasks and jobs that your care team can carry out without requiring regulatory approval from the CQC. These services cover aspects that provide general assistance with people’s daily lives, without needing to adhere to strict rules around personal care.

SureCare’s range of services includes assistance with household jobs and running errands for those unable to get out and about. With household services, you can support someone with general domestic tasks like cleaning, doing the laundry and replacing hard-to-reach light bulbs. Additionally, you can offer assistance in the garden to mow the lawn or tend to plants.

For those with restricted mobility, your care staff can offer support running regular errands. This can include picking up prescriptions, walking pets and even our increasingly popular shopping service. With fast-changing guidance on shopping in public, you can offer to do a client’s weekly shopping for them so they don’t need to worry about going out in the present circumstances.
 

Franchising with SureCare allows you to maximise your potential by providing helpful services to clients and benefiting from multiple revenue streams as soon as possible.

SureCare franchisees awarded CQC registration

Two of SureCare’s latest franchisees have recently completed their registrations with the Care Quality Commission, allowing them to deliver regulated home care services within their communities.

When a new SureCare franchisee establishes their new business anywhere in England, registration with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is at the top of the agenda. As the industry regulator for health and social care throughout England, providers must be regulated by the CQC before they can begin offering those vital services.

In the meantime, franchisees are able to provide unregulated services like shopping assistance, running errands and help with household chores. However, completing CQC registration opens up the doors to more personal care services being available.

We’re pleased to announce that our franchise operators in SureCare Batley & Wakefield and SureCare Wandsworth have recently achieved their CQC registrations. Now, both are ready to deliver regulated home care and support services to people throughout their communities.

About the CQC

The CQC ensures that health and social care services throughout the country are provided in a safe, compassionate and effective manner. As we often deal with some of the most vulnerable members of our society, it’s important that SureCare operators work in a way that doesn’t pose any potential risks to those we care for.

Not only does CQC regulation help us to make sure that our services are always safe and compliant, but it also acts as a badge of honour that gives our clients the peace of mind that they’ll be well looked after in our care.

To help our franchise operators understand more about the effectiveness of their care services, SureCare Batley & Wakefield and SureCare Wandsworth will soon receive routine visits from CQC inspectors. As part of these inspections, their practices and leadership will be reviewed to determine the safety, effectiveness and responsiveness of their services.

Ratings will be awarded based on these regular inspections and SureCare is committed to helping our franchisees with the advice, guidance and resources to achieve ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ ratings.

Why SureCare offers a unique home care franchising opportunity

When it comes to running your own business in home care, franchising with SureCare is one of the most effective ways to start supporting your local community quickly and professionally.

If you’re looking to operating a business that brings essential home care to people in your area, there are plenty of things to consider to ensure that your services are delivered in a safe and effective manner. By franchising, you can rely on the professional support and knowledge of a nationwide network.

Unlike many other home care franchisors, however, SureCare offers various other opportunities that will allow franchisees to diversify their core business. This means giving you more freedom to implement additional services and support the wider community in a way that suits you.

Range of services

The majority of home care providers in the UK focus on assisting elderly people with their day-to-day routines. This means that they’re often limited when it comes to supporting people throughout the local community, as there are many others who require essential care on a regular basis.

With a wide variety of services on offer, SureCare operators can cover numerous market segments in the care sector. This involves providing high quality support to people of all ages and for those with complex needs like learning or physical disabilities.

Our services are flexible and care packages can be tailored to meet different demands. Whether a client requires round-the-clock live-in care or just an extra pair of hands for task around the home, SureCare enables franchisees to unlock their full potential in bringing invaluable services to their market.

We have recently introduced shopping services across the country to help those who need assistance going out to get essentials or for those who may be unable to leave the home altogether. This has proved to be a considerable lifeline for many services users during the recent lockdown period.

Working with other businesses and organisations

SureCare operators across the country also work with NHS Discharge Teams to support those recovering after a stay in hospital. Making the patient transition from hospital to home can be a tricky process, which is why our care teams strive to help things go as smoothly as possible and can even provide home care services for a period of recovery.

In addition, SureCare has over 25 years of experience in working alongside Local Authorities to assist with large client volumes. This allows people in need of care to contact their local council for help finding a supportive care service. SureCare operators can then provide vital help through council contracts.

With a team of professionally trained care workers, SureCare franchisees can also provide agency staffing solutions at times when residential care homes may be temporarily short-staffed.

By running your own business, you can also make additional decisions on how your team could support local charities and volunteer groups. In the past, other SureCare franchisees have held their own fundraising events or volunteer extra time to support causes close to them.
 

By franchising with SureCare, you get to maximise your potential with multiple revenue streams, whilst providing invaluable services to people in your community.

SureCare franchisees achieve top Home Care awards

This month, a couple of SureCare franchisees received the wonderful news that they have been named amongst the Top 20 Recommended Home Care 2020 providers by homecare.co.uk

Our operators at SureCare Central Cheshire, SureCare Newcastle and SureCare Rugby received the accolades, which focus on the top 20 home care providers in different regions across the UK.

The top providers are decided based on reviews and recommendations from service users and their families, so it’s excellent to see their hard work and dedication hasn’t gone unnoticed, especially at such a challenging time.

SureCare Central Cheshire

In the North West, franchise owner Tina Jones and her business partner Kirstie Hercules have turned SureCare Central Cheshire into one of the region’s leading providers of home care. Joining SureCare in 2019, they have quickly built a substantial business, bringing safe and quality care to people in their own homes.

Owners of SureCare Central Cheshire Tina Jones and Kirstie Hercules said: “When setting up our homecare company, only 16 months ago, we said that we had two simple aims – to provide high quality care to our clients and to build a company that staff were proud to be a part of.

“Reading our client reviews on homecare.co.uk shows how we have achieved our first aim and the following quote from one of our team members shows how we have achieved the other. We will continue to build our company across Crewe, Nantwich and the surrounding rural villages, providing only the highest levels of care and continuing to offer superb care role opportunities to local people in a company where they can gain experience and grow with us.”

Kimberlee, one of the care team members said: “Working with SureCare as a first time carer has been one of the most amazing and rewarding experiences. I have learnt so much with the help of the amazing management and working with wonderful team members. The clients smiles when we come in to assist them with care tasks and the ones who just enjoy the company and a good chat over a cup of tea is really a feeling beyond heart-warming. Being a carer is more than completing tasks some struggle with, it’s a big family where we share everything from the warm hugs and tears to the belly laughs. I always knew from starting that our team would achieve greatness and go far, as we have nothing but love for what we do.”

SureCare Newcastle & North Tyneside

Over in the North East, SureCare Newcastle & North Tyneside has earned a spot on the Top 20 list for the second year in a row. A customer rating of 9.5 out of 10 means they now have a 2020 accolade sitting proudly alongside their 2019 title.

Last year, franchise owner Akshay Duggal said: “This award proves that our service users, their friends and family have confidence in our company values and, of course, our care workers.” We’re thrilled to see that the Newcastle team is consistently being recognised for their exceptional work by the people who matter most.

SureCare Rugby & North Warwickshire

Last but by no means least, SureCare Rugby & North Warwickshire is listed amongst the Top 20 care providers in the West Midlands. Achieving a score of 9.9 out of 10, the team in Rugby is also celebrating a double win after securing a Top 20 spot in 2019 as well.

We’re immensely proud of our franchise operators across the country for consistently delivering high quality services to people who need them most. It’s also great to see how service users and those closest to them have responded to all the hard work and commitment shown by our teams of care workers.

Resisting the recession with a SureCare franchise

Whether we like it or not, a recession seems to be most certainly on the way. Operating in a recession-resistant industry, however, means that businesses in the home care sector are unlikely to feel too much of a pinch.

The coronavirus situation has affected our society quite unlike anything we’ve seen before. Many shops, restaurants and non-essential facilities have faced temporary closure for a prolonged period and this has caused a significant knock-on effect on the economy.

Now the UK, like most of the world, is expected to see economic downturn on a larger scale than the 2008 financial crash. While the country will look ahead to eventual recovery from the coronavirus crisis, the struggle could last for quite some time for various businesses.

However, for those operating in the home care industry, business has to continue as normal to meet a rising demand for vital care services. It’s difficult to say what the coming months and years will have in store, but home care can offer strong opportunities for new and existing business owners to weather the storm.

Franchising with SureCare

As one of the nation’s leading care providers, SureCare is uniquely placed to help compassionate and dedicated professionals to start up and run their own home care business. We’re seeing huge levels of demand for essential services to support the community and this is set to continue long after the pandemic situation subsides.

Even in normal times, increases in life expectancy mean that our population is constantly ageing. The Office for National Statistics predicts that the number of over 65s will reach 20% of the total UK population during the next decade. This is expected to increase further to 25% by 2050.

As we get older, many people will hope to continue living independently in the comfort of their own homes, rather than having to relocate to care homes. Care in the community is fast becoming one of the most vital and relied-upon care services throughout the UK.

To help you begin your own business in this highly lucrative sector, SureCare offers franchising opportunities all over the country. With support and training from our franchising team, you can provide essential services to people in your local area, safely and effectively.
 

Operating a business in the healthcare sector gives you the unique ability to flourish and even grow, no matter how the wider economic landscape looks.

To find out more about how franchising with SureCare can help you resist a recession, get in touch with us today on 01244 321 199 or email enquiries@surecare.co.uk

 

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

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.

Franchising with SureCare

SureCare has been reaching out to communities across the UK for over 25 years and it’s thanks to the hard work and dedication of franchise operators and their care teams who have focused on helping people at home. With the support of SureCare’s franchising team, our nationwide network of compassionate and highly motivated professionals are committed to delivering quality personal care to people of all ages and abilities.

We’re constantly expanding our reach across the country and we’re looking for budding business owners with the right drive and determination to support those who need a helping hand. Whether or not you’ve worked in health and social care before, SureCare can offer exceptional training and business support for you to manage care provisions exclusively within your territory.

Running your own business comes with a lot of responsibility, but by franchising with SureCare you’ll have access to a range of support tools, knowledge and resources while you operate in a highly rewarding environment. All in all, you’ll be making a real and positive difference that enriches the lives of those most in need.
 

Whether you decide to begin your own business now or you want to plan ahead for the post-COVID recovery period, speak to us today to find out if franchising with SureCare is right for you.

New franchise owner for SureCare Charnwood & Rushcliffe

It is thanks to our franchise operators that SureCare is fast becoming one of the country’s most recognised and reputable names in home care.

Joining the home care industry

There is currently a massive demand for more care providers throughout the UK because of our ageing population. Not only are more of us living longer, many people also want the freedom of enjoying their independence at home. Domiciliary home care allows people – typically older people and those with serious health conditions – to continue living at home as they receive vital support and assistance.

Some of the new franchisees that have joined SureCare in the past have had little previous experience of the care sector, but have been highly passionate about making a positive difference in people’s lives. Whatever your background, you will receive extensive training and support from our Head Office team when you franchise with SureCare and begin your own home care business.

We’re interested in people capable of showing the right levels of dedication, drive and determination, alongside a commitment to care and compassion for others. With our franchising support, you’ll have the right skills and knowledge to run your operations and manage a team of care workers delivering the best quality of service, whether you’ve worked in healthcare before or not.

Why SureCare?

Domiciliary care isn’t the only service that SureCare offers to customers, though. Over the years, we have developed an extensive and flexible suite of services, including: live-in care, childcare and babysitting, dementia care, and even support for those with disabilities and complex personal needs.

Not only does this allow SureCare teams to reach out to more people around the country, it also means that multiple revenue streams are available to your business. This tried-and-tested business model has even helped some of our most recent franchisees to achieve a £1 million turnover within their first year.

Overall, SureCare is proud to be a people focused franchise, with proven systems that help you to grow a substantial and profitable business that provides quality home care and support for those who most need it. And just in case you needed any more convincing, SureCare is a proud member of the British Franchise Association, the UK Home Care Association and several of our franchisees received the Top 20 Award 2019 from Homecare.co.uk

SureCare’s latest franchisees come to Batley & Wakefield

We’re excited to welcome two new franchise owners to the SureCare family. Following their one week induction course at our Chester head office, they’ll be bringing vital home care services to people in Batley & Wakefield.

Securing their exclusive territory within West Yorkshire, long-standing friends Wajjad Hussain and Sajjad Haider will lead the way for a team of care workers operating in Wakefield, Batley and the surrounding areas. Both gents come from backgrounds in delivering exceptional customer service, and their dedication to service users’ needs will be the key to their business’ success.

Meet Wajjad and Sajjad

Both new franchisees are highly experienced and have achieved great successes in their respective careers through hard work and perseverance. Sajjad comes from a rewarding background in education, working within the tuition industry. He has also co-owned a highly reputable education centre in West Yorkshire alongside his sister, aiming to help people in the local community.

Wajjad has also experienced local triumphs in his ownership of a fully managed fitness centre in West Yorkshire, which boast more than 1,000 active members. Additionally, he has a strong background in digital marketing and this will be a crucial asset when advertising online and reaching out to new customers in the area.

Head office support

Just as with any of the franchisees in our network, Wajjad and Sajjad will receive the full support of our head office team as they progress their business. They’ll also benefit from regular interactions with two dedicated business development managers. These BDMs will be on hand to help with growth at SureCare Batley & Wakefield along with ensuring regulatory compliance with the CQC.

This week, both Wajjad and Sajjad have visited our head offices in Chester to attend a week-long induction course. Here we rigorously put them through their paces to bring them up to speed with the high quality standards that SureCare is renowned for up and down the country.


SureCare’s franchise recruitment manager, Josh Farrer, welcomes the new operators saying: “The team and I are delighted to welcome Sajjad and Wajjad to the SureCare family.
