Bluebird Care Services Ltd started in 2004 as a small family business but soon grew thanks to its exceptional customer service and care packages, as well as the way that exactly the right recruits were hired to give superb care to all who required it. Now it is one of the largest providers of home care services in the UK. There are over 200 branches and franchises delivering care to more than 20,000 customers each day.

The reason that Bluebird Care Services Ltd was started was that owners Paul and Lisa Tarsey realised something had to change when it came to the home care sector. The quality of the care was just not good enough and neither was the time allocated to spend with each patient. Rushing through, always looking at the clock, it just wasn’t right – it wasn’t fair. So it was time to start concentrating on the patient rather than the profits. By doing that, profits came anyway.

Bluebird Care Services Ltd attribute their success to the innovative training and support they are able to give franchisees across the country, meaning that their systems are nationwide and their ideas are implemented quickly and easily.

Care Franchises

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.

Domestic Care

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.
