Working In The Care Sector: The Facts You Should Consider

September 15, 2017 5:37 pm Published by

Being a part of a home care agency and owning a franchise is not only a job for someone who feels passionate about the industry, it’s quickly becoming a requirement in the UK! In fact, did you know that by 2025 it is estimated that the need for care workers will have almost doubled to 2 million people?

 

The UK is currently served by 685,000 home care workers and 53% of them are part-time. Unfortunately, it’s not enough! There is an unmet need for care with 30% of women and 22% of men over the age of 65 in need of help carrying out daily activities who don’t receive the help they need.

 

As more and more people are encouraged by the UK government to be cared at home rather than moving into residential care or seeking support from the NHS, Home Care Preferred are able to provide this ongoing support and care.

 

As a franchisee of Home Care Preferred you will be able to make a difference to an aging population, where over the next 25 years the number of older people will increase by 32% and the number of people aged over 75 will increase by 75%.

 

How does Home Care Preferred make a difference?

 

We provide care and support to allow people to live fulfilled lives in the comfort of their own home and surroundings. We provide care for adults of all ages and in particular for older people. We improve quality of life for clients specializing in Dementia care and support for acquired brain injury and neurological conditions. There is also ongoing support available for adults with learning disabilities.

 

In addition to care and support, a Home Care Preferred franchise appeals to the retail market too. There is a need to buy and hire equipment which uses innovative technology as well as products to improve daily life and aid home comfort.
