Franchising with SureCare in a recession-proof industry

Change Text Size A A A

With a recession very much on the horizon, budding entrepreneurs may be hesitant to invest in a new business in the present climate. However, by operating in a recession resilient industry, SureCare can help you to establish your own successful home care business in any circumstances.

Recent news of economic turmoil is understandably causing great concern for people from all walks of life. From lower income families to small business owners, the Bank of England’s prediction of a recession later this year makes for a gloomy outlook.

As the overall economy begins to shrink, people naturally become reluctant to make newer investments. This means that those who’ve been considering a new venture in the near future will likely put their ambitions on hold for a while. But it doesn’t have to be that way…

About the home care sector

Any period of recession can lead to a variety of different businesses facing a struggle, as the impact is largely felt on the cost of production and overall goods. However, the home care sector is uniquely placed to resist the effects of economic downturn, with vital support services continuing to be in high demand.

The flexibility and versatility of the home care industry allows operators to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances. By running your own business in home care, this means you’re less reliant on aspects like the manufacturing, buying and selling of goods. Instead, your key priorities will be to support vulnerable members of your local community with professional and compassionate support services.

The importance of care for vulnerable people has never been more prominent as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. It prompted many of us to re-evaluate how we support our friends and family members and just how valuable essential care services actually are for some people.

Professional care services are in incredibly high demand today and that demand only continues to grow. Many specialist care homes and retirement homes operate up and down the country. However, the emergence of home care over the last 20 years or so has given people a viable alternative, allowing them to receive support in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.

By operating your own home care business, you can provide vulnerable people in your local area with that option to receive care services where they feel most comfortable. You’ll manage and nurture your own team of remote care workers and grow your very own successful business from the ground up.

How franchising with SureCare helps you

Making the decision to start a new business in the home care sector is one thing. However, actually taking the leap and getting the ball rolling is often quite a difficult and daunting prospect, especially with the fears of a recession looming just ahead of us.

Starting a new business from scratch is no simple feat, which is why franchising with a larger company can offer you a helping hand. At SureCare, we have perfected our franchising model over the years to support new business owners across the UK. We will collaborate with you to take care of a lot of the finer details, so you can concentrate on business development and day-to-day operations.

Franchising with SureCare allows you tap into various resources that you otherwise wouldn’t get by starting up alone. Chiefly, you would benefit from following our tried and tested business model and our expertise in establishing and implementing a tailored business plan. With support from your own business development manager, you’ll receive advice and guidance every step of the way to get your new home care business off the ground.

Not only that, our franchising support team can provide additional ongoing assistance for any issues or concerns you may have. We can help with practical support like training, recruitment and marketing, as well as offering advice on operating within a future recession.

Ultimately, it’s our goal to help you get the most out of your initial investment. That way you can propel your business forward without worrying too much about what may happen in the wider economy. You can instead focus on supporting your customers and ensuring you deliver quality care services to the people who most need them.

Who do we help?

While the majority of home care services in the UK are aimed towards the over 65s, SureCare franchisees can offer so much more. We have extensive knowledge and expertise in delivering care services to people of all ages and abilities.

SureCare franchisees have the ability to offer childcare services, support for adults with disabilities and even live-in care for those in need of round-the-clock assistance. In addition to personal care services, you can also offer general support including laundry and cleaning around the home, as well as shopping and delivery services for those who find it a struggle to go out.

So many of us are living longer and our overall population is getting older. With more and more people coming to rely on different levels of care and support, demand for home care keeps on growing and this is expected to continue long into the future.

Operating your own business in the home care sector is one of the most rewarding ways to make a living today. You’ll get to work with and support members of your local community, enriching their lives and forming strong lasting bonds with them. Not only that, you’ll be shielded from the effects of economic downturn no matter how the economy fares in the months and years to come.

Investing in a SureCare franchise is one of the safest investments you can make as a budding business owner in today’s climate. With the support available from our Head Office and our nationwide network of franchisees, we’re ready and raring to discuss a franchising opportunity with you and help you launch you very own home care business.

Testimonials

"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."

Sami Haider, Southend

"I don’t come from a care background, but became interested in running a business in this sector after caring for my grandfather. I saw how difficult it is for older people to continue to live on their own without day-to-day support. I like the ethos of SureCare, which is all about providing clients with the highest possible quality of care. It allows me to run my own successful business while also giving back to the community."
