Avant Healthcare Services,
50 Salisbury Road,
Dedicated to providing high quality professional care, and with bases in Hillingdon, Ealing and Hounslow, Avant Healthcare has been a bastion of quality and care ever since its inception. Benefitting from the wealth of experience and insight of its founder Sally Graham, who has over 17 years of experience in the care sector, and before starting Avant sold her first franchise in 2010 as one of the UK’s top five home care companies. Avant’s mission is to enable people to live comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible, and in doing so they can support people suffering from a range of issues, including, dementia, mental health problems, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, Parkinson’s, brain or spinal injuries, multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease.
In providing this care, Avant relies on a core set of principles and values, designed not only to ensure a high standard of care, but also respect and compassion for all individuals. These are, aspirational quality, moral virtue, accountability, nurturing and trustworthiness. Before they can treat a patient, all of Avant’s staff undergo a thorough background check and recruitment process, to ensure they meet the company’s high standards. Avant is also committed to a proactive and individually driven approach, ensuring that you have the right care worker for your situation, liaising with both you and your loved ones throughout the process, and proactively responding to any changes or issues that may arise.
This committed and caring approach, one that is focused entirely on compassion and the individual makes Avant not only a sound investment, but a heartening one.
Residential Care Homes
According to the UK governments care homes study 30th November 2017 the care homes sector is worth around £15.9 billion a year, with around 410,000 residents. They calculate that there are 5,500 different care service providers in the UK operating 11,300 care homes for the elderly. Approx 95% of their beds are provided by the independent sector (both for-profit & charities ). Government local authorities generally commission care services from independent care providers. On average the cost for a self-funder in 2016 was £846 per week (nearly £44,000 per year), while Local authorities paid around £621 per week.
UKHCA estimate that total local authority expenditure on domiciliary care services in the UK in 2014/15 was £3.9 billion. As personalisation or self-directed support policy progresses nationally,the uptake of direct payments has increased. UKHCA estimate that totallocal authority expenditure on direct payments in the UK in 2014/15 was £1.5 billion. There has been a trend in England over recent years for NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) to purchase social care and health services from the independent and voluntary sector. In 2014/15 total CCG expenditure on non-NHS care services was £2.3 billion. At this time we do not have more detailed expenditure analysis available or domiciliary care specific expenditure data. Data on expenditure by people who self-fund their care is sparse. UKHCA estimate that expenditure on domiciliary care by self-funders in 2014/15 was £713 million.
With this very large and apparently growing sector there are many different opportunities to start a business with a domestic & care home franchise, providing care in peoples homes via a home care franchise or domiciliary care franchise or setting up a residential care home franchise business.
