The care industry is one of the most diverse there is, as well as one of the most secure given the aging population and the national approach to health care for all. There is also the requirement for quality child care which has never been greater. With working couples or single parents needing to know that their children are being cared for in the right environment.
For the business person looking into this market there then lies a seemingly never ending range of possibilities; from care homes for the elderly to childcare for children. So the question then is how financially viable such a business is, and what forms of franchise packages are out there that may suit both your skillset as well as your budget.
The advantages of working within the Care Sector:
Regardless of the specific care business, many find that working within this sector offers universal advantages, such as it being personally rewarding and providing a real sense of doing something that is important for others.
There are a variety of franchise opportunities with Care Homes for the elderly generally turning over hundreds of thousands of pounds, whereas other smaller services (such as mobile care) can start from lower earnings which build more gradually.
In respect of childcare franchises you could be considering a Master Franchise or a smaller part-time franchise caring for children and helping with their development.
The range of care franchise packages that you will find amongst our categories is both wide and varied. Here we take a look at a few of our most popular to give you a real life overview of the choices that you have before you.
