Caremark is a well-established in-home care franchise with a reputable track record of expertise and success in the sector, garnered from approaching twenty years in the industry.
The population is living longer and many more people wish to remain at home, as a real alternative to a Residential Care Home, supported to lead fulfilling, independent lives in their later years.
Caremark provides bespoke, high quality care and support to people of all ages, abilities and ethnicities through its network of UK offices.
This is a management franchise with franchisees recruiting their Care & Support staff to deliver Caremark’s award-winning care and support to clients living in their own homes.
Caremark offer an exciting business opportunity to run a successful operation whilst fulfilling a social need to a high standard.
With a network of over 120 offices in Britain and beyond, Caremark continues to look for talented individuals to complete its network. There are many territories remaining across the country and a small number of UK franchise re-sales available.
The Caremark brand continues to expand and there are now offices in Ireland, Malta and Kerala, Southern India.
You will require a minimum of £37,500 of your own capital to invest. Our franchise package and license costs £35,000 + VAT. You’ll also need a working capital of around £73,000 (although this may vary depending on the territory and your personal circumstances).
PLUS we have the lowest monthly management fee in the sector at only 4.5%. (The total investment is approximately £118,000.)
Caremark has a strong relationship with major banks, who will consider lending 70% of your first year’s running costs, subject to a satisfactory business plan.
Before a franchisee starts their business, they receive expert training through a ten day in-house course covering all aspects of the care sector, legislation, the Caremark model as well as the all-important business management training.
Support and on-going business development guidance are provided to franchisees, both before and after business set-up from a dedicated Regional Support network and in-house specialist support from a highly experienced Head Office Team.
The Caremark culture is one of support and encouragement from day one and continues throughout every stage of your business development.
This support has been particularly prevalent during COVID19 with the network being constantly updated with all the guidance and information they needed to allow their businesses to grow during uncertain times, working within their resilient business model.
Using their vision, drive and entrepreneurial skills, franchisees are responsible for directing and growing a viable business in their local community. Those all-important relationships are built through networking, direct marketing, attending and supporting local events as well as attending provider forums, thus forming business connections with key contacts and local health professionals. We have seen a shift towards online marketing, training and networking through new video technologies during COVID19 and the support team have been there every step of the way with up-to-date advice and information regarding everything around Coronavirus, helping franchisees grow their businesses and remain resilient while other franchise sectors have seen business shrink.
With the support of their registered care manager who oversees the care operation, franchisees must build a strong and cohesive team, combining leadership and management skills to inspire and encourage their staff.
