MAYFAIR, U.K. - July 8, 2019 - PRLog -- The senior health and care industry is an important arm of the overall healthcare industry. With crucial demographic shifts around the corner, there is more demand now than ever for specialist senior care providers, a trend successfully identified and adapted to by care franchises across the UK.

With hundreds of care franchise opportunities available, UK franchisees have the luxury of choice. This, however, can and does lead to confusion, especially among inexperienced franchisees. Franchise4u's franchise directory, the largest of its kind in the UK, lists the best senior care franchises of 2019, and aims to educate franchisees by providing verified reviews from real franchisees, in-depth franchisor profiles and an all-new, bespoke star rating system.

The healthcare industry in the UK has, over the years, set a great example for the world to follow in terms of quality of services provided and the accessibility to these services. Despite its many apparent flaws, it has managed to stake its claim as one among the best in the world, a fact substantiated by the performance of its senior care sector.

Hundreds of private businesses operate in this sector, often working closely with local councils and authorities. Despite this, there remains enough potential for new businesses to enter and succeed. The continued support from investors to such businesses is an unmistakable sign of the potential for growth. A quick look at numbers in this regard confirms this assertion.

Close to 1 million UK seniors receive professional care (either domiciliary or institutional). This number is expected to grow steadily over the next two decades. The domiciliary care industry, on its own, generates over £8 bn in revenue each year, employing over 600,000 skilled personnel. Approximately three quarters of the total spending on senior care services comes from insurance/governmental funds, with the rest self-funded by the clients.

Running a senior care franchise is more of a niche/specialty venture than other franchises. Franchisees with prior experience in the healthcare or medical fields are known to find it easier to adapt to the rigorous demands of the business. Along with the experience, franchisees are required to obtain or hold the necessary licences required to offer professional care services.

All leading franchisors offer thorough assistance to their franchisees in obtaining such licences and certifications. Apart from this, franchisees can expect full training, necessary technical support, business support, marketing assistance and customer care service from the franchisor, the fees for which are usually rolled into the monthly deductibles.

Running a senior care franchise is best suited for business-minded people who have excellent people skills, necessary business acumen and some level of prior experience in senior care. Those who do not possess the experience can make do by limiting their involvement in the running of the business to a managerial level.

The comprehensive franchise directory at franchise4u ( compiles a well-documented list of UK-wide senior care franchise opportunities. The directory is free and now available to all interested franchisees, with an added benefit of Franchise Reviews from existing franchise operators and owners, providing real and powerful insights into how the franchise really works.
