Now is the time to invest in a Caremark franchise…
The demand for quality home care in the UK and internationally is constantly on the rise due to the ageing population and many more people wishing to remain at home. Since 2005 Caremark has built up a reputation for excellence and the company has remained one of the leading UK and international providers of home care services.
As a Caremark franchise owner you will be providing bespoke, high quality care and support to people of all ages, abilities and ethnicities and be part of our UK network
There has never been a better time to invest in a Caremark franchise; our franchisees have recently experienced record growth due to the growing in-home care market, resilient business model, and unrivalled training and support, even during the economic turbulence of Brexit and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Caremark is proud to be a wholly UK owned and operated home care franchise which has an established and successful UK based network.
Our proven home care business formula works because it provides people with the option to receive excellent care at home in a form tailored to the needs of the individual. Specialised home care from qualified and experienced carers also helps alleviate pressure on limited NHS resources.
Most importantly, your clients will benefit from being looked after in the comfort and security of their own homes. The care and support they receive can help them to enjoy a fuller, happier life.
Caremark is a management franchise with franchise owners recruiting their Care & Support staff to deliver our award-winning care and support to clients living in their own homes.
Caremark offers an exciting business opportunity to run a successful operation whilst fulfilling a social need to a high standard.
With a network of over 100 offices in Britain and beyond, Caremark continues to look for talented individuals to complete its network. There are many territories remaining across the country and a small number of UK franchise re-sales available.
The Caremark brand continues to expand and there are now offices in Ireland, Malta and Kerala, Southern India.
Training and support provided
New franchisees are not required to have a background in care as they receive expert training through a 2 week in-house course covering all aspects of the care sector, legislation, and the Caremark model, as well as the all-important business management training.
Support and on-going business development guidance are provided to franchisees, both before and after business set-up from a dedicated Regional Support network and in-house specialist support from a highly experienced Head Office Team.
The Caremark culture is one of support and encouragement from day one and continues throughout every stage of your business development.
This support has been particularly prevalent during COVID19 with the network being constantly updated with all the guidance and information they needed to allow their businesses to grow during uncertain times, working within their resilient business model.
The ideal Caremark franchisee
Our franchisees come from a variety of backgrounds, some with extensive business experience and others with none at all. Whatever your level of knowledge, we will work in partnership to give you the skills you require.
Using their vision, drive and entrepreneurial skills, franchisees are responsible for directing and growing a viable business in their local community. Those all-important relationships are built through networking, direct marketing, attending and supporting local events as well as attending provider forums, thus forming business connections with key contacts and local health professionals. We have seen a shift towards online marketing, training and networking through new video technologies during COVID19 and the support team have been there every step of the way with up-to-date advice and information regarding
everything around Coronavirus, helping franchisees grow their businesses and remain resilient while other franchise sectors have seen business shrink.
With the support of their registered care manager who oversees the care operation, franchisees must build a strong and cohesive team, combining leadership and management skills to inspire and encourage their staff.
A Caremark franchisee has:
- A caring attitude towards others along with ambition, commitment and empathy.
- Ambition and determination to succeed

Caremark launched in 2005, but the roots of the company go back as far as 1987, to a rest home established in Brighton. The success of that venture led to the provision of care services for people in their own homes.
Caremark CEO Kevin Lewis is one of the most experienced home care franchise experts in the UK. The success of the Caremark business draws extensively upon the care industry knowledge he has gained over more than 30 years. It all began in
1987, when Kevin set up a rest home in Brighton. The success of this business venture led to social services inviting him to diversify into the provision of home care in 1993.
