A reputation for outstanding care
A 'very exciting' start to 2008 has seen several new Caremark offices open. The domiciliary care provider is looking forward to a year of continued growth as more franchisees are sought to build on its outstanding reputation in their local communities
Caremark prides itself on providing the most professional, consistent and client-focused care possible. The ethos of the company has always been that of honesty, integrity and exceptional standards, all of which continue to be reflected through the success of Caremark's growing number of franchisees. Caremark's growth is now extremely evident. Franchisees are reaching and exceeding targets month-on-month and delivery of care continues at the highest level. Each office works to Caremark's proven policies and procedures, which together with drive and determination enable franchisees to develop a reputation for outstanding care within their local community.
Caremark now has a network of 20 offices, 18 in the UK and two in Ireland. The recent franchisee training course saw two new franchisees join the network - both franchisees are now putting into practice all they have learned and are beginning to develop successful businesses.
'We are extremely excited to see new franchisees opening their doors for the first time,' explains Managing Director, Kevin Lewis. 'We can see the potential ahead of them and are here to ensure they maximise each opportunity available to them. As a franchisor, their success is paramount to us and we want every franchisee to be as successful as they possibly can be. In order for them to do this we give our knowledge and support each step of the way.'
As an entirely customer-focused care provider Caremark always works closely with its clients to ensure the delivery of care is based on the clients' preferences and needs. Caremark's clients include private individuals who have an array of care providers to select from, choosing Caremark because of its professional, reliable and (it may seem obvious) caring approach. They take comfort in the knowledge that their level of care is constantly assessed and they have access to advice and assistance from a supervisor whenever they need it.
By entering into a business in domiciliary care, you can see the financial rewards of working in a continually buoyant market and play an important role in the development and continued growth of an extremely valuable service. A passion for care and the motivation to make an opportunity a reality is the focus behind Caremark's franchisee recruitment.
'We are constantly aware of market development and work to ensure that we as a network have the knowledge and ability to always meet the demands of our clients and the regulators of the sector,' says Franchise Manager Sean Cragg. 'We work in an extremely exciting and challenging business and are always delighted to introduce new franchisees into the sector.
'Caremark is developing a real reputation for market excellence and we intend to ensure this continues. We have an extremely high calibre of new franchisees ready to join the network and this, together with the tremendous successes of our existing franchisees, has made for a very positive start to 2008.'

Farina Tayub, Caremark, Leeds East
"I spent a considerable amount of time researching franchise opportunities and after six months I knew my criteria to look for in a franchise. I wanted a business within the service industry but I knew I'wouldn't enjoy sitting in a shop - I wanted a business that would be personally rewarding as well as financially. After reviewing the trends in the sector I could see that domiciliary care was the way forward. Caremark provided the solution: I was drawn to the franchise because of their experience and the support they provide to franchisees.
"The initial training course was in-depth and very thorough and I am now putting into practice all that I have learned. The support has been fantastic and I am enjoying meeting new people and taking on new challenges. The business is continuing to grow and I feel very confident in my decision to choose Caremark."
