Care Franchises helping the Ageing Population
It’s a sad fact that older people often need care at some point in their lives, whether while recovering from surgery or a stay in hospital. Or perhaps on a long-term basis. We all want our nearest & dearest to get the kindest care money we can buy should they need domiciliary care, support to remain independent, or 24hr nursing care in the future.
The demand for around-the-clock care is rising in the UK.
According to the BBC, the number of older people requiring around-the-clock care is predicted to double by 2035.
Families often try to manage care initially, which can cause stress & strain on the so-called “sandwich” generation, that slip straight from child-rearing responsibilities to caring for elderly parents, without a break and in some cases simultaneously, often while in paid employment. Caring for the elderly is a responsible & rewarding role in society. We all share the responsibility to ensure that elders’ care is safe and nurturing. It should provide enrichment as well as dignified personal care.
Care Franchise opportunities are an excellent option for starting a business within this essential services sector.
The vast majority of care franchises are operated on a management basis and provide full training and support. Whether the franchise provides transport & companionship.
Daily personal care and support within the client’s own home or a residential nursing home, there are many franchised business options within the care sector.
Care franchises often attract applications from people with management, a white-collar background that has solid organizational & personal skills, and are compassionate individuals. Levels of investment vary dependant on the type of franchise and whether premises are required for the business to operate. For example, a Franchisee running a daily care franchise could do so from home or a small office. For a nursing home franchise option, the investment will be more substantial.
