The 'Mark' of Excellence Caremark continues to lead the way

The UK's growing aged population is providing increasing impetus to the domiciliary care sector, which provides assistance to people in their own homes, improving quality of life

Caremark's mission has always been and continues to be to progress and develop in its marketplace and offer excellent standards in domiciliary care. Having now been operating since 2006, this mission is well on the way to being realised. Since its first franchised office opened in Kingston upon Thames in 2006, the growth of the business has continued to build significantly year on year, with a current network of 33 offices and more due to open soon.

The foundation of the Caremark business has been built on experience, knowledge and honesty, it is this platform, which prepares and trains Caremark franchise owners for a business providing a service, which will have increasing demand. The entire Social Care Sector is currently estimated to be worth in excess of £20 billion per year and a market share in this sector provides real potential for financial growth and a business opportunity hard to match. Provision of homecare is a necessity for many people and with the current financial climate affecting so many businesses, it is no surprise the interest in a relatively stable industry is growing quickly.

Kevin Lewis, Managing Director of Caremark, is passionate about developing a franchise network that succeeds across the board, with every office performing and receiving as much support as they require. 'My aim has always been to deliver the highest standards in care and to provide a business model that will offer opportunity for everyone at Caremark. Caremark has always prided itself on this and this will always be the philosophy that will drive us to our long term goals'

The Caremark support team now boasts an impressive nine people and looks set to grow further this year. Sean Cragg has taken on the new role of National Operations Manager, while Emma Parker joins the team in the role of Franchise Manager. Dedicated to ensuring their franchise owners create successful businesses, the Caremark support team continually reviews its development to ensure ongoing support is always available.

Quarterly regional meetings see franchise owners coming together from across the country to exchange ideas and to work collectively, building a corporate brand and culture. It is evident that franchise owners have formed very close alliances and this is very much the culture that Caremark creates across the network.

Providing a home care service takes dedication, hard work and adherence to a system, which meets the strict guidelines and policies set down by the regulators of the industry. With the support of an experienced franchisor, and the necessary management skills, a very profitable business in care can be built. It is fundamental to be a manager of people, coupled with a real ambition to succeed - these are key ingredients as comprehensive training and support is on offer.

We believe in the 'mark' of excellent care and Caremark will always only recruit those people who identify with our corporate values and strive for excellence in everything they do. If you have a caring outlook, the ambition and drive to succeed and the ability to run your own business then this could be the life changing opportunity that you have been looking for.
