The SylvianCare Business Model

As a Sylvian Care Franchisee your goal will be to provide suitable care and support for vulnerable adults within your local community. Your clients are likely to have a wide range of reasons for needing care ranging from lack of mobility through to Dementia. As a Domiciliary Care business we provide all of our services in the clients’ own homes thus allowing them to maintain a level of independence which is important to them.

For individuals with a need for ‘all round’ care you will be able to offer various Live –In Care Packages. This will, as the name suggests, be where your carers will live in the clients’ homes providing full time care. This may be required for a short period of time for example, during a recuperation period after a stay in hospital or indeed it may be a permanent solution to care and one which can prove to be more economical and indeed more appealing to the client than Residential Care or multiple visits by a carer every day.

Our business model is a ‘Management Franchise’. We do not expect you to personally provide the care. Your role will be to manage the business and to source suitable care staff.

As a Sylvian Care business owner, you do not need to have care qualifications or a background within the industry. If this is the case, then we would help you recruit a suitably qualified Care Manager.

This would be required in order for you to gain the necessary Care Quality Commission (CQC) registration, which we successfully gained in 2014.

The role of a Sylvian Care Franchisee is varied and above all rewarding. You will find yourself carrying out the following tasks:

  • Recruiting, training and managing your own staff
  • Interviewing, assessing and recruiting suitable care staff
  • Along with your Care Manager (if applicable) training your care staff to meet the Sylvian Care standards
  • Visiting Prospective Client’s to assess their needs
  • Preparing individual client care packages
  • Forming close relationships with the relevant local authorities

As well as all of the above you will, as the business owner, have the responsibility for the overall management of your franchise. As you can see Sylvian Care Franchisees can look forward to a varied and challenging career.
