In the coming decades the population of people aged 65 and over is set to equate for over one quarter of the entire UK population. What’s more, those aged over 65 spend almost half of their remaining life expectancy not in good health.
Despite this rise in demand though, Local Authority care funding has decreased in recent years, leading to a 20% drop in people receiving care from their Local Authority between 2009-2015 – meaning more people turning to private providers. This has made the private marketplace a growing opportunity; with a projected increase in home care service users and strong profit margins enabling a high quality service.
The Radfield brand was launched in 1982 as a residential care home. Franchisors, Dr Hannah MacKechnie and Alex Green grew up within this care home, which was owned and operated by their parents. As they grew older they both worked within the care home, before Hannah trained to become a GP and Alex worked with financial institutions in charitable sector.
By 2008, they already had a lifetime of experience caring for older people and recognised their needs were changing and they wanted to remain within the comfort of their own home, where they could maintain independence. As a result, Hannah and Alex launched the next evolution of the Radfield brand: Radfield Home Care. They then spent the next eight years developing multiple home care branches; giving them an unrivalled knowledge of the private home care sector.
With this wealth of experience behind them, they launched the Radfield Home Care franchise opportunity in 2016. This enables like-minded people, like you, to develop their very own rewarding business with profitable returns, safe in the knowledge they are supported by people who have been there and done it.
As a family owned and operated company, values are at the centre of the model, Recognising Radfield’s commitment to a values-based business model, one of the world’s biggest ethical accreditations, B-Corporation recently enrolled them as its only UK healthcare member.
It’s not just about experience, values and sector knowledge though. Radfield Home Care was one of the pioneers of technology in the home care marketplace, and now utilises remotely accessible, cloud-based care management software. This allows franchise partners and clients the benefit of a transparent, safe and cost-saving service.
You will also benefit from a unique invoicing system that allows Radfield franchise partners to enter the home care sector with attainable working capital requirements, and maintain a robust cash flow that will generate a strong platform for ongoing growth.
The franchise package costs £30,000+VAT, and you will require approximately £40,000 to support your business through to break even – which you can expect after around 11 months.
