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 elderly care services are tailored to each client (transportation, meal preparation, light housework, days out, stimulating activities and much more) Seniors Helping Seniors® is a trusted care brand with 20 years and over 300 franchisees worldwide. Winning awards for Customer Service, the unique style of care appeals to people needing support and to the people supporting them.
Seniors Helping Seniors® provides practical help, companionship and inspiration. The service is perfectly tailored for an ageing society. Carers with personal experience of ageing and caring appreciate the rewarding, well paid, flexible local work. There is no shortage of brilliant carers like Seniors Helping Seniors® carers, and as a Seniors Helping Seniors® franchisee, you will be working with loving, caring giving and compassionate people to facilitate award winning care in your own location. Employees are experts by experience or care professionals who have retired or moved from social, charity or other care jobs.
Seniors Helping Seniors® services are not CQC regulated. We are out of scope for the CQC because we do not offer medical services or personal care. We operate 20-year-old outstanding standards, synonymous with the Seniors Helping Seniors® brand and adapted to your own community.
Seniors Helping Seniors® is a Top Ten and a Top Twenty most recommended elderly care agency in UK and it has featured on the BBC for innovating the care sector. The NHS describes Seniors Helping Seniors® as “perfect primary care” because it keeps people well, short and long term.
The joint drivers are offering relevant, well paid and satisfying work that people want to do as they age and providing easy to accept, fully managed at home care services that families and older people love. Seniors Helping Seniors® is an influencer, changing views and offering new opportunities and choice for people as they age in UK.
Seniors Helping Seniors® is an international organisation with a successful franchising history spanning 20 years. The UK operation is award winning and small, so you’d be joining a passionate team. We are ambitious for success in your own area but we are not hungry for our own profit, so you’ll enjoy our support and our terms. We are currently looking for franchisees in East and South East England (excl. London). Our aim is to build a nationwide network over the next 10 years.
We welcome enquiries from people who want to use their skills to make an important contribution.

You can expect to be up and running within 3 months. Most of the training is upfront. Training encapsulates 20 years of success in 5 days:- Two days initial training, followed by a period of local work which you do at your own pace, and a further 3 days of in-person franchisee training. Training is run by the 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, marketing materials, 24/7 support plus monthly follow ups to guide you with shared experiences. National partnerships benefit every franchisee’s local operation.
Training is in a relaxed professional environment and every step of the operation is taught, so no specific business skill or care skills are required but people skills are a must.
We carefully select potential franchisees to ensure the right mind-set and heart.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
This is a home-based business and it is a people business. You will need to meet potential clients and carers as well as all the charities, companies, surgeries and locals who will refer business to you and sign post services. 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 replace themselves as their businesses grow, so franchisees develop their own roles over time.
The service helps solve the care crisis as well as offering much needed rewarding work to older workers, so this is a legacy you will be proud of.
