Radfield Home Care is offering you an exciting, affordable business opportunity in a growing marketplace...
With over 30 years of experience in providing care to the elderly, Radfield Home Care is an award-winning company built on an outstanding reputation, whose director Dr Hannah MacKechnie is a qualified GP.
Hannah, alongside her brother Alex, grew up in Radfield Residential Home for the Elderly giving them a unique insight and knowledge which they have used to establish Radfield Home Care as a leading name across the West Midlands and North West England.
We are the very first Certified B Corp in the UK healthcare sector which demonstrates our commitment to ethical business and treating our franchisees well. A B Corp is to business what fair trade is to coffee.
We are offering the opportunity to share our unrivalled knowledge and expertise with our franchisees to work together to make Radfield Home Care the elderly care provider of choice across the UK.
Why Choose a Home Care Franchise
Most people wish to remain living in their own homes as they get older and the majority of adults who use domiciliary care services are over 65 years of age and this section of the population is growing every year.
A Radfield Home Care Franchise is recession resistant and provides a continual stream of business throughout the year which makes it easy to plan and grow.
The Radfield Home Care Business Model
We are 'The Elderly Care Specialists' - this means that our business model is targeted into the growing demographic of privately funded elderly clients, whilst keeping the burden of knowledge and training manageable for care staff which helps with recruitment and retention. By focusing on providing care to elderly people it significantly reduces the risks within the business as you are not delivering care into high risk, low profit sectors e.g. childrens services and learning disabilities. Being 'The Elderly Care Specialists' also creates an extremely compelling marketing message to families purchasing care for their loved ones.
Our dedicated teams of carers provide support to elderly people in their own homes, from 30 mins to round-the-clock care, to ensure they can remain living independently for longer at home.
The franchisee will need to run the business and network to grow the client and carer base. They should be committed, passionate and enterprising individuals wanting to build a reputable and successful business with the support of our highly-respected brand. It is not essential to have prior knowledge of the care sector or of running your own business as we can help you develop your skills in these areas.
We partner with the latest technology solutions to run the most cost effective service possible allowing more time for franchisees to devote to the growth of their business and not just the running of it.
Training and Support
The Radfield Home Care training and support programme is completely dedicated to one objective - ensuring that our franchisees gain the skills and knowledge to dominate their local home care marketplace and build a highly successful business.
We provide our franchisees with an extensive in-depth induction course and ongoing skills-building programme based at head office and at their own location.
Our head office team is highly experienced in the financial, medical, IT, care, traditional and digital marketing, business development and compliance worlds so we can offer each of our franchisees individually tailored support that can accelerate their business success.
