I'm aiming to provide the best domiciliary care in my area

"I had worked in social services for nine years and had always wanted to run my own business. Caremark stood out because it promotes standards of excellence in the domiciliary sector. The fact that it gets great reports from its annual inspections says it all - in my opinion Caremark is the best franchise in the UK's domiciliary care industry.

"During a two-week training course we spent a day discussing recruitment and we had the opportunity to put adverts on websites for a Care Manager. I've already had six responses from these adverts! The support from Kevin Lewis, founder of Caremark, and Sean Cragg, the Franchise Support Manager, has been excellent.

"Although I have a wealth of knowledge within the care sector, running my own business will still be a learning curve. It will be a challenge operating my own business, however, I'm aiming to provide the best domiciliary care in Wolverhampton."
