What to look for when you compare franchise businesses

Change Text Size A A A

If you’re looking to start your own business in home care, you may decide to franchise with an existing company. But how do you make the right decision when you compare franchise businesses?

With so many home care providers around, it’s often difficult to pinpoint the aspects that actually make them different. Other than offering vital services and opportunities to support vulnerable people, you may be wondering what else is there to look for?

There are various elements of SureCare’s operations that make us stand out from the crowd, though. Alongside the exceptional levels of service we provide our customers with, we also work extremely closely with our franchisees throughout the country to ensure they receive the business support they need.

Here we take a look at some of the ways that SureCare provides the best choice for anybody looking to set up their own home care business as they compare franchise options.

Exceptional experience among our support team

SureCare will soon be celebrating 25 years in the care industry, having started in 1994. Since then, we’ve continuously gone from strength to strength, first providing quality support to people in our local area, before branching out across the country. This is all thanks to the tremendous work carried out by our growing network of franchisees over the years.

Through our supportive head office team, franchise owners have been able to develop and grow their own businesses with a helping hand available whenever they may need it. SureCare’s unique team structure means that we have two dedicated Business Development Managers on hand, with each focusing on their own specialist area.

One BDM focuses on compliance with care policies, specialist recruitment for care workers and ensures client retention through fantastic customer service. Meanwhile, our other BDM looks towards providing assistance in sales and marketing – helping to build brand awareness and attract new service users in their area – as well as offering support for securing care contracts with local authorities where relevant.

It’s our mission to make sure that our franchisees operate as effectively as they possibly can. This will ultimately ensure that the level of quality in SureCare’s service is consistent throughout the country, wherever our service users are located.

Benefit from multiple streams of revenue

When you think of “home care”, it’s common to think of personal care for the elderly that’s carried out in regular visits. Whilst this kind of domiciliary care does account for the majority of our services nationwide, SureCare also provides assistance in a vast range of other areas.

SureCare’s range is extensive and diverse, able to support people of all ages and abilities throughout life’s journey. This includes care for those with physical disabilities and those living with dementia, as well as childcare services for looking after babies and young children.

Whether a service is required permanently on a long-term basis or just to provide some temporary respite, every one of SureCare’s packages is tailored to meet the recipient’s exact requirements. This allows service users to benefit from a helping hand every now and then or to rely on a 24-hour service from a live-in care worker.

It’s not just personal care that SureCare franchisees can provide; we even offer support for additional domestic services if and when necessary. This can include helping out with general housework, providing a handyman service or even a bit of light gardening – the possibilities range far and wide, putting SureCare a head above the competition.

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 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."
