Radfield Home Care has welcomed another new franchise partner into its expanding national network of domiciliary care providers in Cheshire
Husband and wife team; Julie and Kevin Scott are preparing to open their new office in the Radfield Home Care Chester & Ellesmere Port territory in mid-2021. After living and working overseas for 10 years, they were inspired by Julie’s mother’s experience of care to return home and take the opportunity of starting a home care franchise in the UK, to give back to their local community.
“We came back to Chester to settle here and to get involved in the community around us. We want to be able to give something back to the community and get involved in making peoples’ lives better,” Julie explains.
“I was inspired by my mum who, at 50, decided to become a home care professional. I was inspired at what a difference she was making to peoples’ lives; sometimes she would be the only person they would see each day. My mum then needed personal care at home herself when she had a terminal illness and the people who came to help her were lovely and very professional.”
Before launching their new home care business, Kevin, Julie and their two sons lived in the Middle East. Kevin has worked in the oil and gas industry for nearly 15 years, and Julie started her career in finance but, more recently, spent a number of years working in childcare and schools.
Despite their broad and varied professional experience, Kevin and Julie felt that a franchise business in the care industry was the right option for them:
“We decided on the franchising route as we then get access to all of the knowledge and support from a company that is established. The support in all aspects of running a business is crucial as we are new to social care. Having support from experienced professionals can only make us grow stronger. We chose Radfield Home Care as we found it to be very professional but on the same hand very caring and family orientated which really appealed to us.”
Radfield Home Care Chester & Ellesmere Port is not the only new franchise joining the expanding network of Radfield and starting a business though. A new office is launching in the Camberley, Farnborough & Fleet territory, with further franchise partners attending their initial training courses in the coming weeks.
“We are delighted to welcome Julie and Kevin to the Radfield network. It is great to see the brand continuing to expand nationally and values-driven individuals with a passion for quality care services join the network,” franchisor and founder, Dr Hannah MacKechnie comments.
“Julie is working with the support team to prepare the new business for launch in the weeks ahead – recruiting their registered care manager, applying to the Care Quality Commission (CQC), beginning their early promotional activity and setting up their business structure. I look forward to seeing them begin trading, neighbouring the original Radfield business based in Shrewsbury.”
