About Seniors Helping Seniors

Seniors Helping Seniors

Company Overview

Seniors Helping Seniors employs active older people with time on their hands and matches them with less active older people who need help to stay safe and well in their own homes. Our care services are tailored to each client (transportation, meal preparation and light housework, days out and stimulating activities), providing flexible care services to support elderly people who want to stay independent and safe living in their own homes.

Seniors Helping Seniors provides companionship and inspiration every day, helps solve the care crisis and offers rewarding work to older workers. You will be working with loving, caring giving and compassionate people to facilitate award winning care in your own location, so you only need to look around you to see the potential.

Employees are experts by experience or care professionals who have retired from social, charity or care jobs. Carers love working for Seniors Helping Seniors.

You do not need to register with CQC to run this care service. We are out of CQC scope because we do not offer medical services or personal care. We operate 20 year old outstanding standards, synonymous with the Seniors Helping Seniors brand.

Training

You can expect to be up and running within 3month and most of the training is upfront. Training encapsulates 18 years of success through two days of initial training, a period of local research which you do alone and 3 days of franchisee training. Training is run by franchisor who has personally managed a Seniors Helping Seniors operation and has a record of rolling out repeatable business operations. You will receive a manual and continual support plus monthly follow ups to guide and support you with shared experiences and national partnerships which benefit every franchisee’s local operation.

Training is in a relaxed yet professional environment and every step of the operation is taught, so no specific business skill is required but people skills are a must.

We carefully select potential franchisees to ensure the right mind-set and heart to run a successful Seniors Helping Seniors operation.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

You will need to be on the road to get your business known locally. It is a home-based business but it is a people business. You will need to meet potential clients and staff (providers) as well as charities and companies that will refer business to you.

Care of the elderly is a partnership with family, medical and local services so communication is 80% of your day. The proprietary admin system maintains care plans, employee details, handles invoicing and salaries. Franchisees have chosen to outsource and use trusted employees to replace themselves in the business as their businesses grow so they can develop their own roles in the company.
