Care Franchises in the UK

There are dozens of different care franchises UK with a national and international presence. All of them are benefiting heavily from the aging of the general population. As a general rule they can be categorised into providing three different levels of care. Each level of care requires a different level of skill and involvement with the clients it serves.

  • Minimal Care – A care franchise focused on minimal domiciliary care will generally focus on helping seniors and others in need of assistance with basic day-to-day tasks. The most common services provided at this level are companionship, a meal, and house keeping. Generally care is performed in the individual in need of care’s own home, and only lasts for several hours each day, or a minimal number of days per week. It is also the level of care that requires the least expertise to get into business.
  • Intermediate Care – Intermediate care is a higher level of care. It generally requires a staff that has more training in different types of situations. Intermediate care is usually delivered on a daily basis. It often includes up to two meals a day, companionship, house keeping, and bathing. Often it is performed in the home of a loved one where the individual in care resides.
  • High Needs – A high level of care required. Often a nurse or paramedic level qualification is required in order to be able to deliver the care required. All bathing, dressing, meals, and other daily tasks require assistance. This care is generally delivered constantly while the permanent care given is at work.

A higher needs care situation requires a lot more investment from the perspective of a franchisee as staff need to be well trained to deal with clients.
