Avant Homecare highlights the need for more care franchisees in World Alzheimer’s Month

Avant Homecare, the growing care services franchise, is campaigning to reduce the stigma of Alzheimer’s this September, which is World Alzheimer’s Month.

"All of us at Avant Homecare are working to reduce the stigma associated with Alzheimer's and dementia, and we welcome new franchisees who feel the same."

Whilst there is currently no modifying treatment for Alzheimer's, a diagnosis followed by appropriate medical help and support could dramatically improve their length and quality of life of people with Alzheimer's.

One in every 14 of the population aged 65 years and over has dementia and at the current rate of prevalence this will grow to over 1.5 million people by 2040 (Alzheimer's Society, 2019).

"Of course, we all want to see an effective treatment or a cure for Alzheimer's, but meanwhile we must continually strive to offer the best possible care for all people with dementia - and our franchisees play a vital part in that," says Sally. Avant Homecare franchisees get extensive support from head office to deliver training for care staff in techniques that make life easier for people with Alzheimer's. Training is updated every year.

Training in supporting customers with Alzheimer’s is just one part of the franchise package that Avant Homecare provides, which ensures that its franchisees and their care teams are well-equipped with the skills to deliver a rewarding service and build a healthy income in their area.

"We provide you with the practical benefits of years of successful experience in the care sector, to help you build a multi-territory, multimillion-pound business that really makes a difference, " says Sally. The investment required to start an Avant Homecare franchise is £25,500 + VAT plus working capital, and Avant will help you prepare your business plan and with any funding applications.
