Homecare franchise making the headlines for all the right reasons.

Two things are true in an ageing society:

Millions of people, 45 years old and over, want to work in flexible, local, well-paid jobs that value their experience.

Millions of elderly people need help to live independently.

Seniors Helping Seniors is a unique model of elderly care addressing both these issues simultaneously.

In a survey run by The TSB bank, 97% of the public said they prefer to spend with companies who run their businesses on good business principles.

Seniors Helping Seniors businesses are members of the prestigious Good Business Charter and Care Sector Champions for the Living Wage Foundation.

These hard-won principles guide everything we do, including the way we treat your enquiry. You are assured transparency and accuracy.

We will need to know you will uphold the highest business standards because the kite marks our partners live by every day, are governed. We expect you to be as proud as we are when your customers tell you they came to you because you are members of The Good Business Charter, because you pay and treat your carers exceptionally well, and because they read glowing reviews.

The brand stands for trust and expertise with over 24 years of service delivery.

The company is privately owned with no venture capitalists to answer to which results in a non-pressurised and kind business environment.

Because we are not ‘medical’, we have many benefits: For the business owner, being out of scope for the Care Quality Commission (CQC) means our businesses save all the time and costs that come with regulation. Our non-regulated services follow CQC standards as a minimum and we excel. Business owners can remain out of scope for the CQC forever, but there is a choice!

Now regulated by the CQC to provide personal care

Early in 2022 the company’s methodologies on offering personal care alongside Companionship care were accepted by the CQC.

Franchise partners now have the choice to provide personal care alongside companionship care for the same low franchise fee.

Whenever business owners want to expand into personal care the franchisor offers support in applying for CQC registration and the blueprint for offering the services.

The support and the blueprint are offered 'free of charge’ which means the business owner does not pay the franchisor. The business owner does pay the CQC and does pay for everything required to run a CQC regulated care company.

Seniors Helping Seniors earned the S.A.F.E care award for it’s COVID-19 response and our unique carer to client protocols continue to provide comfort.

Priorities regarding how people make their living, where they spend their money and who they work for and with, has shifted in society. What appeals most now are companies who prove they genuinely leave the world in a better place and as an independently owned care company, Seniors Helping Seniors is an influencer in this regard.

Christian Wilse, Seniors Helping Seniors (UK) says “The vision for Seniors Helping Seniors is always on the requirements of the ageing population and this is an amazing place to be. Our ethical credentials stand out to clients, carers and to our potential business partners. Care has always been big business and our approach is refreshing. We entered the sector to disrupt. We are transparent and true.“

Seniors Helping Seniors is a fully managed care service. Helping self-funders and people using care allowances. Signposted by charities, GP’s, dementia specialists and social prescribers because the benefits of wellbeing and purposeful living are proven.

Christian says, “Our carers can utilise experiences gained through caring for loved ones or working in traditional care. We provide well-paid, flexible work that fits requirements in every community. We always have willing and able carers joining our offices. Our clients are raving fans and our franchise partners are happy and proud."

Seniors Helping Seniors In-Home Services Offers a Meaningful Opportunity for Potential Carers and Investors

Retirement isn’t often everything people dreamed of - especially when travel is difficult and expensive, savings are threatened by the impending recession and the cost of living being at frightening levels.

People are seeking work again and we are seeing people “un-retire”

People who are un-retiring have conditions. One thing people love about retirement is their freedom.

This is especially good news for Seniors Helping Seniors, the in-home senior care brand that employs active and mature carers to help elderly clients to live independently.

Namrata Yocom-Jan, Seniors Helping Seniors president says,

“We are in a position not only to employ those seniors needing to return to the workforce but to provide them with fulfilling and life-changing experiences as well as the choices they want.”

The Booming Senior Care Industry

The in-home senior care industry has seen unprecedented growth in recent years, as the baby-boom generation has reached the phase in life where support services become necessary.

90% say they plan to remain in their homes for the next 5 to10 years.

There are 24,000 CQC registered care services in England and the big care companies are on a spending spree to buy up smaller care companies to capitalise on the growth in demand.

Big care companies and their drive for profit may not resonate with most peoples’ idea of person-centred care and partners who have invested in businesses with the big care companies are having to deal with the relentless drive on corporate returns.

The Seniors Helping Seniors brand has been run by the same family for over 24 years. Seniors Helping Seniors strives for excellent care and doing the right thing. “Our niche is attracting seniors to care. We offer peer-to-peer support which is rewarding for client and carer. We’ve been told it is the key to the long-term health of the nation because keeping people in well-paid and rewarding work for longer, keeps people well.

The rapidly ageing population, combined with the demand for in-home care means Seniors Helping Seniors is in high demand.

Making a Difference when you un-retire

“We’ve put a lot of work into ensuring that Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care is not only the best option for our clients but also for carers” President Namrata Yocom-Jan said. “There is so much that goes into high-quality senior care, including both medical and non-medical services, but central to all of that is a genuine and caring relationship between the carer and client. We will continue to make sure anyone with the passion and skills to be a great carer will find an opportunity to grow and impact with Seniors Helping Seniors® services. Our carers truly have…a way to give and to receive®.”

As people look to come back into work through pressures of cost-of-living increases, many are looking to more meaningful and fulfilling industries to devote their time to at this point in their careers.

A Meaningful, Community-Focused Investment Opportunity

Just as many retirees are returning to work, people are exploring ways to secure their retirement savings further and make smart investments.

A Seniors Helping Seniors franchise offers an opportunity to invest in a booming industry as well as a meaningful opportunity that provides value in the community to those in need.

The Seniors Helping Seniors franchise system was founded by husband-and-wife duo Kiran and Philip Yocom. Kiran, who grew up in India, worked to advance humanitarian efforts alongside Mother Teresa.

Together, the Yocoms founded Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services in 1998, opening the brand up to franchising in 2006. The brand came to the UK in 2013 with Sally and Christian Wilse.

Today, the brand remains the only company that prioritises hiring active seniors to provide care services and it sees the company keeping out of the crisis in finding and keeping carers.

The franchise system has grown to over 200 locations worldwide and is looking to continue its growth in order to change the lives of people as they age. The brand’s success cannot be denied as it’s welcomed 30 new franchise owners to its system covering 65 territories over the past 12 months.

“Seniors Helping Seniors franchise has been able to establish itself as a standout company in the in-home senior care segment thanks to our multiple points of differentiation,” said Yocom-Jan. “We have a strong focus on our franchise owners, mature carers, an optimised and proven business model, a community-driven atmosphere, strong operational support and a mission to focus on what is right, over our own profits. These factors have all contributed to our ability to provide compassionate care for the growing population of individuals aged 65 and above for the last 24 years.”

Seniors Helping Seniors Testimonials
We run the Solihull & Warwick office. We knew we wanted to run our own business, but we wanted something with a real social purpose too. This drew us to the home care sector where we came across the SHS brand. It felt such a compelling and disruptive model for home care. Older adults being supported and helped by like-minded, relatable people of a similar demographic. It made total sense! Christian and Sally were extremely helpful, approachable and transparent with all our questions (we had lots of them!) during our due diligence before purchasing. This made a significant decision for us, much easier to make. Training was great and very insightful and helped prepare us for the early months of starting our business. We are now getting to grips with things and Christian & Sally are always on hand to help with queries and provide guidance. There is never any pressure or hard targets, but rather a constant availability to support us in getting to where we want to be. We're proud to be part of the SHS care network and look forward to having a positive impact in our local community.
Mike & Cathy S,
Seniors Helping Seniors
We were excited to attend the Seniors Helping Seniors Care Franchise onboarding training in February 2022 with Christian and Sally. The training was truly ‘5’star, very thorough and detailed. We learnt about the importance of adopting the franchise model and they shared strategies for success in managing and growing a Seniors Helping Seniors care agency franchise. We took on board their top tips for marketing our own domiciliary care franchise and immediately put them into practise. This has significantly increased awareness of the services our care3 franchise provides and has enabled fast track growth. Sally and Christian continue to provide outstanding coaching and are always very supportive.
Seniors Helping Seniors
I discovered Seniors Helping Seniors franchise opportunity when looking for a business after retiring from teaching. I wanted somthing that was about people, was run on ethical principles, and would be financially successful. After inital talks with Christian and Sally, I was so glad that my wife and I took the plunge and bought our Seniors Helping Seniors business. Training and support has been outstanding, with nothing being too much trouble and questions answered immediately. I really feel that I have 'arrived' home, and that many and varied life experiences have brought me to this. If you are looking to make a difference and help solve a real problem for so many eldery people, then I would absolutely recommend a serious look at this opportunity.
Steve C,
Seniors Helping Seniors
From the inital telephone call, both Christian and Sally have been open and welcoming to the Seniors Helping Seniors franchise. The inital training gives you all the tools that you require to build your SHS business, to whatever size you want. Regular contact with Christian and Sally helps you overcome any operating issues. I would recommend anyone looking at starting a business in the care sector to have a serios and in-depth look at Seniors Helping Seniors
Mike D,
Seniors Helping Seniors
Before I met Christian and Sally, I had been acutely aware through personal experience wth my elderly mother that there was a desperate need for the home care sector to be disrupted, for business to be conducted differently and for the edlers of our society to be valued and supported through opportunities to continue working and remaining active, as well as for those who need to be supported, to do so with love, kindness and compassion. Upon meeting Sally and Christian, I realised very quickly that Seniors Helping Seniors does exactly this, and more. It was a no-brainer for me to then become a franchise partner. The entire process has been an utter joy and Sally and Christian have been supportive and thorough in the training and support, always available and willing to help. I truly feel part of a team that is the living embodiment of its mission and values. I recently completed my training which, due to Covid was conducted virtually, however, this was no issue at all. It's a true honour to be a part of the team and to make a difference to how the eldery are supported and cared for.
Rena L,
Seniors Helping Seniors
We run the Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, & West Malling branch in West Kent and have been extremely pleased with the support and training that Christian & Sally provided and we love the whole concept of Seniors Helping Seniors. The inital training provides everything you need to get started and the systems and processes work well, make running a Seniors Helping Seniors branch simple compared to setting up in business yourself. We highly recommend both the franchise and the entire Seniors Helping Seniors business model.
Keith R,
Seniors Helping Seniors
Great inital training and lots of follow-up service as needed
Andrew B,
Seniors Helping Seniors
We found Sally and Christian to be very approachable and easy to talk to from the start of our initial enquiry about Seniors Helping Seniors. They have a very open and transparent approach which is refreshing. The training was comprehensive and well structured, yet adaptable to one's level of business experience and, having owned and operated the Seniors Helping Seniors business themselves from its inception in the UK, both Christian and Sally were able to train on many different scenarios drawn from their own first hand experiences. Ongoing training and support is on hand and just a phone call or Zoom meeting away. Christian and Sally are motivated to assist their franchisees to build their businesses, as Seniors Helping Seniors becomes one of the leading elderly care providers in the South East of England. We would be happy to (and have done so) recommend the Seniors Helping Seniors Franchise to anyone looking for a rewarding business and making a difference to the lives of the elderly.
Paul M,
Seniors Helping Seniors
Our carers are very caring and have been fantastic with mum. There were times when I don't know what we would have done without your assistance. This has been a very difficult time for us and I want to say how happy we have been with the services provided by the carers and Seniors Helping Seniors management throughout. Average rating: 5/5. Overall standard: 5/5. Staff: 5/5. Care/support: 5/5. Management: 5/5. Treated with dignity: 5/5. Value for money elderly care: 5/5.
