Resisting the recession with a SureCare franchise

Change Text Size A A A

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.

"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."
