Right at Home welcomes two new franchisees. Tracey Shehan and Grantley Lynch join a network of like-minded people desiring to make a difference to Clients’ lives in their own homes.
Right at Home started franchising in 2011, and have grown to provide quality homecare in more than 50 locations throughout the UK. This summer, they welcome two new business owners into their 55-strong network, Grantley Lynch and Tracey Shehan. “Tracey and Grantley share the same desire as all Right at Home business owners; to genuinely care for people in their local community,” explains Franchise Recruitment Manager, Kate Dilworth, who enjoys meeting caring people to discuss their opportunity to start their own Right at Home business.
Grantley felt he had reached the top of his previous career. In his mid-40s, he started looking for a reduced-risk way to work for himself, whilst providing for his young family, “Franchising takes care of the risk elements associated with starting your own business,” he says of Right at Home’s franchise opportunity. “I first met with them last January, and really liked what Right at Home stands for. It resonated with me. They genuinely care about providing the best homecare.”
“I am blessed with both my parents being alive,” he continues. “But as they grow older, I know I can’t always be there, so I wanted to influence them to access the best possible homecare services. It was a real pleasure to complete the initial training this July. I have high-expectations for my Right at Home Medway business, and intend to never compromise on our quality of care, although I might compromise on sleep, and some grey hair!”
Right at Home UK owners share three common goals, to help others, and give something back to their local community; to achieve profitability by offering trusted quality services; and to make Right at Home the number one choice for homecare across the UK. They also share at least one common attribute, they genuinely care.
Tracey Shehan who has worked in a variety of care franchises, rising from caregiver to management, demonstrating how much she genuinely cares. She is now ready to run her own business. “I could have started-up independently with my experience. But franchising gives me security. Right at Home offer their brand, business structure, and training on how to run a business. I didn’t want to worry about learning how to do this, I want to focus on what’s important. Offering exceptional homecare. My motto has always been: True care doesn’t come from any textbook. It comes from within. I’ll always stand by this, and inspire my team to live by the same. My business will be built on caring, passionate, solid values.”
Tracey and Grantley join the hugely successful Right at Home network, who look set to hit their target of offering exceptional homecare in 60 territories by the end of 2018. “We believe all Clients should be heavily involved in planning their support package,” explains Kate, “which shows them how much we respect their choices and protect their independence. Our Right at Home business owners build a team and operate right in the heart of their local communities.”
Ken Deary, CEO of Right at Home UK explains, “Over the last seven years, we’ve maintained a sustainable measured growth-strategy focused on recruiting new franchisees who show themselves suited to our model. We then throw the full weight of our experience into supporting them to be successful. Our aim is to have a network of owners who enjoy what they do, and do it very well.”
