Change Text Size A A A

Always wanted to start up your own business but haven’t felt the ambition pushing you on? With the New Year on the horizon, now is the perfect time to start looking ahead to being your own boss.

January typically comes as the perfect time for people to make significant changes in their lives. Whether it’s a commitment to get in shape or taking on a massive long-term goal, make your New Year’s Resolution count as we head into 2020.

Embarking on a new venture can often be a scary prospect, especially if there’s a lot riding on the outcome. Getting cold feet, however, is one of the main reasons why a lot of exciting resolutions like starting your own business end up on the back burner.

Because of this, it’s easy to see how franchising offers a beneficial avenue towards operating your own business. By joining a larger company with a tried and tested business model, a lot of the difficult and time-consuming work is already done.

Why choose the home care sector?

Being your own boss is a dream for a lot of people, but choosing the right line of work is vital to ensure long-lasting job satisfaction. When running your own business, you’re in it for the long haul. You’ll want to operate a business that’s lucrative and sustainable, whilst also being in a sector that’s rewarding and enjoyable on a daily basis.

The home care sector is one of the country’s fastest growing areas of business, with services consistently in high demand all over the nation. Many people are living longer and much preferring the option of remaining in their own homes for as long as possible.

By recruiting a local team of remote care workers, you can provide effective care services to those who most need it. Domiciliary care for elderly people accounts for around two-thirds of all home care provisions today, with other services for children and young adults with physical or learning difficulties in significant demand.

Bringing vital care to the people who need it most is a highly rewarding endeavour. It’s truly magnificent knowing that the services you offer will contribute to people’s lives in the most positive and helpful ways possible. This is why more and more entrepreneurs and budding business owners are looking to provide essential home care in their local communities.

"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."

"I have worked in Care Sector as a Senior Social Worker over 16 years and I am therefore fully aware that the compliance, quality assurance and legislative framework are very complex and time consuming. I chose a SureCare franchise to tackle time consuming issues so that I am able to concentrate on business development, relationship building, market growth and staff training. I now have more than 109 service users and, with the support of SureCare, our weekly hours have more than tripled in 18 months and we are looking to double them again by summer 2017."
