The world has reached a unique time in our history where the number of ageing adults is beginning to outpace the rate of newborns. According to Age UK, there are now more people in the United Kingdom aged 60 and above than there are under 18, and by 2040, nearly one in four people in the United Kingdom will be 65 or older. These simple statistics prove that more British citizens are requiring advanced care than ever before.
With the demand in elder care increasing, hospitals and senior living facilities are faced with a stress on available resources to provide care for all those in need. Couple this with the fact that more seniors prefer to remain in their homes as they age, and a strong demand is created for private companion care and/or skilled in-home medical care providers.
Home health care providers play an increasingly critical role to ensure older adults get the care and companionship they want and need. Because of this demand, senior home care has become one of the fastest-growing segments in franchising on a global level. For experienced franchisees looking to expand and diversify their business portfolio into an industry that he or she may have not considered before, home health care provides a litany of benefits and opportunities
BrightStar Care is the recognized leader in the home health care franchise industry, providing a proven business model, infrastructure, training and ongoing support necessary to help franchisees launch and run successful home care businesses. While most home care companies competing in today’s marketplace limit their service offerings to companion care for seniors, BrightStar Care provides the full range of in-home care services ranging from meal prep and light housekeeping to medication management and infusion nursing.
BrightStar Care’s commitment to delivering the highest standard of care across a wide spectrum of services is something that other players in the industry simply cannot compete with. To execute this commitment, each franchise location employs a Registered Nurse Director of Nursing who creates unique, personalized plans of care for each client and oversees the professional care teams of well qualified, experienced caregivers who deliver expert, compassionate and personal care. To validate BrightStar Care’s superior home care ability, The Joint Commission – an international standards organization – recognized BrightStar Care as an Enterprise Champion for Quality for the fourth year in a row. BrightStar Care is the only home care franchise to earn this distinction every year the award has existed.
Due to BrightStar Care’s proven track record of being the leading provider of expert, compassionate care in the United States, along with the organization’s solid infrastructure and resources, the brand is at the forefront of meeting demand for in-home care needs abroad – specifically in the United Kingdom. BrightStar Care is currently focused on efforts to secure deals with master franchisees for large territories within the United Kingdom, who can then sub-franchise after opening two to five of their own locations. The ideal candidates to lead development of the United Kingdom would be sophisticated operators who have experience in managing their own organizations, who are looking to diversify their business portfolio, and who clearly understand the franchisor/franchisee relationship, along with the training and support process for franchisees.
Recently, the company signed a master franchise agreement with Michael Shneer to lead BrightStar Care’s expansion throughout Canada. Shneer, who plans to bring 65 locations across all 10 Provinces within the next five years, is an accomplished master franchisee who has introduced three other American franchises to Canada. “BrightStar Care stood out to me because of the higher standard of care that is ensured by the Director of Nursing, who oversees all of the care within each agency,” explained Shneer. “In a highly competitive industry, these standards are not mandatory, so BrightStar Care raises the bar and offers a quality of care beyond that of the competition.”
The need to meet the health and wellness demands of the growing senior population remains an increasingly important topic in the United Kingdom. More and more families in the U.K. are seeking in-home care providers that can remain vigilant to a loved one’s ever evolving needs and adapt their care plans accordingly. Ageing trends present plenty of family challenges, yet they are creating outstanding business opportunities and new compassionate services as well. In-home care providers like BrightStar Care who offer a full range of services at the highest clinical standards are at the forefront during this critical time when more ageing loved ones require more sophisticated care. With an increased demand for quality home care in the United Kingdom, now is the time to see how you can become a part of a rewarding franchise opportunity that is based upon integrity, respect and superior care for all.
