Meet Our Franchisees

Our Franchisees


Right at Home business owners have enjoyed a wide range of careers; 95% of them had no professional experience of the care sector before they joined Right at Home. But they were all drawn to build a business that could have a highly positive impact on their local community; and they recognised that following our proven system could increase their chances of success and accelerate their growth.

By accepting only the best candidates, we have built a highly engaged network of like-minded and mutually supportive business owners, who all share our commitment to quality care.

Case Studies

Kev Popat

Owner, Right at Home Solent, former Chartered Accountant

Alastair Shanks is a man on a mission….to develop the best home care business in Guildford and Farnham.

After leaving university Alastair joined Unilever’s management development programme and was fast tracked into a management role.  He then joined his father’s engineering business with 13 branches spanning the UK as operations director.  However, after seven years he hankered after running his own business…

Joe Guishard

Owner, Right at Home Cardiff and Newport

As a former police officer, Joe was passionate about helping people in need, and for many happy years he put the full weight of his considerable personality into making the streets of Cardiff a safer place. As the years went by Joe’s passion for helping others never waned, but he couldn’t ignore the niggling doubt that perhaps he wasn’t helping himself to achieve his own goals…
