Did you see the piece in the Business Post at the weekend about franchise opportunities with Right at Home?
Outlining the investment opportunities as Ireland’s ageing population rises, David McKone, managing director of Right at Home Ireland, explains how he has "seen a dramatic increase in demand for our support services over the past six years as the demand grows and people prefer to remain at home independently for as long as possible,” says McKone.
According to figures from the 2016 census, more than 637,000 people are aged 65 or over, and this figure is expected to grow by almost 40 per cent by 2026. It stands to reason that the demand for home care franchises will rise significantly in the coming years.
Right at Home Ireland is part of a leading international home care franchise operating in nine countries providing support and personal care services for the elderly and disabled adults in their own homes. The services they provide allow clients to remain in their own homes for as long as possible.
Right at Home was founded in 1995 in the US. The Irish operation was set up in 2013 and currently focuses its operations in five out of nine HSE areas throughout Ireland.
“We are now looking to strategically partner with franchise owners in the Wexford, Kilkenny, Limerick and Donegal areas. We are seeking really ambitious people, with management backgrounds, who are dedicated to high-quality care and the sector we operate in.”
Right at Home’s tried-and-tested business model enables franchisees to grow and manage their business efficiently so that they can provide the highest standards of care. The benefits of a Right at Home franchise include best practices from an international home-care organisation and support tailored by their national office support team, which includes commercial, financial and clinical personnel.
“We have a commitment to excellence in terms of the services we deliver and the support and training given to our franchise partners and staff,” says McKone. “We are always looking at cutting-edge ways to do things. As part of National Carers Week, for example, we hosted a Virtual Dementia Tour experience across five Right at Home locations.”
If you’re interested in buying into a franchise with Right at Home, you should have a can-do attitude, managerial experience, good commercial awareness, a caring outlook and a desire to work to the highest ethical standards. Right at Home is innovative and has a well-being programme to support its carers and office staff.
“We also have state-of-the-art business systems to help you run your business,” says McKone.
