Home Care Preferred is a one stop shop for care
Home Care Preferred
Just another care agency?
Certainly not. Visit your local Home Care Preferred branch and you will immediately feel our community presence. Home Care Preferred is a unique model, one which we are proud to have launched and our vision is that every major town in the UK will benefit from a Home Care Preferred branch.
When customers visit a Home Care Preferred branch they receive a friendly welcome. Here they have the opportunity to receive expert, unbiased advice about all aspects of receiving care & support in their own home.
People frequently join us for an informal chat over a cup of coffee in our private lounge where we are delighted to discuss possible care and support needs.
We often meet with people who need guidance on where to receive expert advice on subjects such as care fee planning, lasting power of attorney or details of health care professionals such as Physiotherapists or Chiropodists. This “sign posting” service is without charge and complements our core services.
Home Care Market Opportunities
The UK home care market is worth in excess of £12 billion per year, and an ageing population means that it’s predicted to triple in the next 20 years. By 2031, 25% of the population will be over the age of 65, and experts predict that 66% of the population will need some form of home care by 2038. In the last 10 years, care at home has become a viable alternative to residential care and preferable for the majority of clients.
If you have the passion and dedication to run your own business, owning a franchise is an excellent way to take control of your future without facing the usual risks associated with self-employment. We have a combined experience of over 40 years in the care sector, so you can start your business on the right foot and benefit from our decades of experience even if you are new to home care.
What it’s All about
At Home Care Preferred, we believe that the right franchise owners are a key factor in each business’s success. We need to know that every franchise is run by an empathetic and capable person who understands our clients and their needs.
For our franchise owners, this is a unique opportunity to run a business with support and training from a brand with proven
success and an established framework for each aspect of the business.
Franchising is not an easy option, but it can be incredibly rewarding – both personally and financially.
Work for Yourself, Not by Yourself
As a Home Care Preferred franchise owner, you own your own business, so you are the first to see the rewards for your hard work. While you’re working for yourself, you’re not working by yourself; you can set your own long-term plan and decide the direction for your franchise, but you don’t have to do it alone. We have an excellent training program and offer ongoing guidance so you always have the support you need to succeed.
Why Home Care Preferred
There are many reasons to become a Home Care Preferred franchise owner. You will benefit from extensive training and be able to offer a proven, profitable service that’s unique within the care industry. We are also a proud member of the British Franchise Association and adhere to its Code of Ethical Conduct to ensure every client and franchise owner is well looked after.
What You Need
Becoming a Home Care Preferred franchise owner isn’t for everyone – running your own care business can be challenging. That’s why we’re so selective – we want to work with the right people and ensure that the right people are representing our brand while experiencing the huge rewards that working in the industry can bring. Our main focus is on personal characteristics, rather than experience within the care industry.
We’re looking for
- Honesty and integrity
- Personal ambition
- Drive and discipline
- Good communication skills
- A commitment to quality and service
- Entrepreneurial skills and vision
- A genuine desire to help clients lead a fulfilled life
Knowledge of the care industry and processes that turn a good business into a great one are all things we can teach. Commitment, dedication, and empathy aren’t, which is why it’s so important to find the right people.
