Care is at the heart of our business. And we care about all our franchisees, as much as they care for our clients.
With Christies Care, you have a great opportunity to earn a substantial income by doing what you enjoy. This is one of those rare opportunities that strikes the balance between social rewards and financial returns.
Clients come to Christies Care needing help with a wide range of different conditions – from dementia to a severe physical disability (either acquired or congenital). Our clients may need full personal care and help with all movement, or they may just want the companionship and reassurance of someone else being there. We help people lead their lives the way they want, as independently as possible, in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.
People are living longer and require more help to live at home. The need for our services is self-evident. According to recent reports, the proportion of the population aged 85 and over is projected to double over the next 25 years, there are 85 people aged 65 and over for every 1,000 people of “traditional working age”. By 2036 over 30% of the population will be over the age of 65 giving you a huge opportunity to develop a successful business.
Ongoing support is provided before and after your business is set up. As a Christies Care franchisee, you’ll become part of a community of like-minded business people, with the ability to network, compare notes, share ideas and experiences, and stay motivated.

How long will it take to launch from the time I sign the franchise agreement?
Normally 3 – 4 months depending on things like CQC registration, finding an office and recruiting carers.
Will you help me with a business plan for the new business?
Yes. We will provide a business plan template and this will allow you to adjust key figures to ensure that it is ideally suited to your territory.
Are there any other costs I can expect?
Yes, other costs to budget for include a local office, local advertising, computer, office rent and working capital. Working capital will depend on how much money you need to draw from the business during the set-up of the business.
What is my expected break even and how long should it take me to reach it?
The time to reach breakeven is governed by finding carers and clients of your business but our experience is that this is normally anything from 12-18 months to achieve profitability.
Do I need any healthcare training or background to join Christies Care?
No, you will need a background in business and understand how a business operates.
Will you help me find clients?
Yes, we train you to find your first 100 local contacts in your territory and train you on the business development system to find and retain key contacts in the area, who will keep referring clients to you.
How will I know what to charge clients?
Part of you completing a local business plan is to be clear on what to charge and that reflects a fair hourly cost for Christie Care services. We help you with a territory review to understand pricing in the territory. This allows you to pay carers well and make a fair profit.
