Now is a great time to start a home care business

Change Text Size A A A

The care industry is currently booming and the next decade looks likely to be one of the most important periods for home care provisions across the UK.

There is growing demand for care services right now and the healthcare industry is often under pressure to provide the right people in the right places with appropriate care. That’s why the care sector is such an attractive area for those looking to start their own new business, particularly domiciliary care for older people.

Even though our population is growing quite gradually, increases in life expectancy mean that many people are living longer now than at any other time. By the year 2030, therefore, it’s predicted that around 20% of all adults will be over the age of 65 – that’s 1 in 5 of us. This figure is also estimated to reach 25% – 1 in 4 UK adults – before 2050.

Where to begin?

If you’ve never run your own business before or don’t know much about the care industry, it can be a very daunting prospect to even consider starting a business. This is where a franchise operator like SureCare can help, with the offer of a tried and tested franchise model and professional support available at all times.

Every member of the SureCare Franchising team has a wealth of knowledge and experience within the care industry, allowing them to support new franchisees. All you need is to be able to demonstrate the willingness, compassion and drive to deliver outstanding levels of care to service users and to flourish as a business.

Investments and returns

Compared to other franchise businesses, the initial investment required is relatively small. Additionally, SureCare has long-standing relationships with a vast range of major high street banks and lenders, who can offer suitable business loans to new franchisees.

From a modest investment, SureCare franchisees have demonstrated the ability to grow rapidly in a fairly short time. Many of our operators have achieved a turnover of £1 million after the first year. This is thanks in part to the ability to benefit from multiple revenue streams.

While domiciliary care for over 65s accounts for around two-thirds of the UK’s home care market, there are many other form of care that SureCare franchisees can provide. With our range of services including childcare, dementia care and even live-in care packages, vulnerable people of all ages and abilities can rely on professional assistance for as little or as long as needed.

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 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."
