What makes SureCare different as a home care franchise?

Change Text Size A A A

There are many options available when it comes to operating in the home care sector. Whether you decide to start up independently or rely on the support of a franchise model, you’ll no doubt be aiming to provide the best possible service to people who need it.

When it comes to franchising with an already established company, there are plenty of businesses to choose from that it can be difficult to decide who to go with. That’s why here at SureCare, we’re determined to make sure our service offers franchisees the right balance of self-operation and network support.

If you’re thinking of starting your own business dedicated to helping some of the most vulnerable members of our society, find out how purchasing a SureCare franchise can benefit you, your ongoing operations and your growing base of service users.

Full training available

Most entrepreneurs or budding business owners who decide to pursue a business in home care will have some kind of experience of the services required on a daily basis. Perhaps you’re a medical professional or looking to make a career change and be your own boss. Or perhaps you’ve been a full-time carer for a family member with first-hand understanding of the level of work involved.

Even if you’ve never worked in home care before, SureCare makes it easy for you to run your own business by providing extensive training in multiple areas of operation. After a week-long intensive induction course at our head office in Chester, the franchise support team will always be on hand to give refresher training and dedicated assistance at any time in the future.

It’s our aim to ensure that SureCare operators up and down the country are well equipped to handle virtually any home care request. As much as our nationwide care teams provide vital support to service users, we believe it’s our duty to offer suitable assistance to our franchisees to ensure service levels and operations are kept to a high quality.

Financing support

Getting a new business off the ground is often an expensive feat, with many prospective business owners often relying on the financial support of a business loan through a bank or other lender. This can be quite a difficult, demanding and sometimes intimidating process, which is why we like to offer a hand in making things easier.

SureCare has long-standing relationships with many high street banks and lenders who have supported our franchisees in the past. With the SureCare name behind you, you’re more likely to be able to benefit from a business loan from a trusted and well-respected source.

Lenders we’ve worked with in the past are generally prepared to assist new SureCare franchisees by lending up to 70% of the total required investment amount. With franchise opportunities available around the £35,000 price point, it can be a big help for you to put forward a manageable personal investment amount while you rely on enough financial assistance to get you over the line.

Complete freedom of operation

Of course, the whole point of running your own business is to be free from interference by some higher power. We understand it can be a worry for franchisees to feel as though they might be under scrutiny from head office, which is why we aim to keep out of your way as much as possible.

This allows franchise operators to essentially be their own boss and conduct their business and processes in a way that suits them. Owners will be able to manage their own care teams, tailor care packages for service users and conduct local marketing campaigns without necessarily having to report back to head office for approval.

While our head office team won’t get in the way of your operations, one of the great benefits of joining the SureCare network is that support will be available at your request. Whether you need a bit of help recruiting new care workers in your area or assistance with compliance and quality control, you have the freedom to get in touch with our franchising support team whenever you may need to.

Franchising with SureCare

As more of the population are living longer, there is a real need right now for an increase in home care provisions. It’s expected that the number of people over 65 will rise significantly in the next decade or so, and many of us will be more likely to remain in the comfort of our own homes rather than more into residential care.

This year, SureCare celebrates 25 years in business as one of the nation’s leading home care providers and franchisors. Having built on our successes over the years, we have helped more than 50 franchise operators to set up their own services across the UK. We also aim to work with many more over the coming years to bring our quality care services to parts of the country we haven’t yet been able to reach.
 

If you’re looking to begin your own new business in a sector that’s dedicated to improving quality of life for all, pursuing a franchise opportunity with SureCare could be the right course of action for you.

Call our franchising team today on 01244 321 199 or email enquiries@surecare.co.uk to get started on taking the first steps towards your new business venture.

 

Testimonials

"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."

Anne Anyon, Preston & South Ribble

"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."
