IF CARING FOR INDIVIDUALS, CARING FOR YOUR COMMUNITY AND CARING ABOUT SECURING A FUTURE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU THEN WE SHOULD BE TALKING

The Care Sector Time Bomb!


It is not being over dramatic to state that the care industry in the UK is fast reaching crisis point. Advances in medical science mean that on average we are all living longer. For the first time ever the UK has more than 11 million people over the age of 65, a number which is predicted to grow to 16 million by 2032.
The number of us living to over 85 will triple in the next 30 years and almost 13 million of the current UK population will reach their 100th Birthday that’s 20% of the population.

It is evident that with this increase in longevity there will be an increase in ‘age related’ conditions resulting in the need for an increase in help to cope with the challenges of daily living.
Add to this the pressures on the NHS and the almost weekly poor publicity for some residential care facilities and you can see why the demand for individuals to be cared for in their home environment under the tailored domiciliary care package that Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care provides will continue to grow.

The flexibility offered by the recent changes in legislation offering individuals ‘personalized budgeting’ which allows them the flexibility to choose their carer has opened up tremendous opportunities for Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care as a quality care provider. If you want a rewarding business opportunity that genuinely gives something back to your community then consider becoming a Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care franchisee.

We believe that we are unique within the care industry by endeavouring to provide carers from a similar cultural background to their clients.

Cultural Care

As a Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care franchisee you are a business owner giving you the freedom to run your own business but with the backing, support and experience of your franchisor

Our Business Model

Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care was founded in 2010 by Claudette Anderson. Claudette’s aim was to provide a domiciliary (in the home) care service with a unique difference. Not only would Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care provide carers who would be ‘matched’ against their clients interest and needs they would also be (although not exclusively) matched in terms of ‘culture’.

This would take into account matching carers to clients with similar backgrounds and language thus taking into account the diverse specific cultural needs to be found within most communities.
It was obvious that many clients were more comfortable being cared for by someone who came from a similar culture and who spoke the same language. In business terms this has led to Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care providing long term care for many of its clients leading to a steady growth in the business.
Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care also take into account the more specialist and sensitive areas of care such as caring for those with HIV and seek to provide care staff with experience of working within this sector or who may be HIV Positive themselves and understand the challenges that their clients face.

As well as the specialist care sectors, you would provide care for anyone who needs it within your community thus maximising you potential to grow a strong sustainable business.
Cultural Dignity ‘n’ Care is a Management Franchise which is premises based. Previous experience within the care sector is not a necessity. Successful franchisees will be expected however to possess, good business skills, have the ability to relate to people at all levels and from all backgrounds and the passion to build a successful business that provides real value to an ever growing sector within society.

The success of a Management Franchise depends on the Franchisee’s ability to manage people (both your own staff and your care providers) as well as having the overall responsibility of running a successful business.
Our training and ongoing support will help you to improve the lives of your clients by providing them with an individually tailored home support package as well as getting you started on your journey to owning a rewarding and profitable business

2. Will this demand be long term?
