Right at Home is looking forward to opening in three new locations in early 2017, bringing the UK network to 43 local offices.
We are delighted to welcome Ben Selby, Julie Houston and Sam Wright into the Right at Home UK ‘family’ as owners of Right at Home South Cheshire, Right at Home North Cheshire and Leigh, and Right at Home High Wycombe and District.
Here at Head Office we’re all looking forward to supporting Julie, Ben and Sam to establish businesses with a reputation for delivering top quality home care.
Julie Houston enjoyed a successful career in banking before moving into the welfare to work sector; her personal experience of trying to find care for a loved-one helped her to realise the value of Right at Home’s franchise opportunity.
Ben Selby is well known to us already as before becoming a franchisee, he worked for Right at Home UK supporting owners with care quality and compliance. We are flattered that Ben was so impressed with our systems that he seized an opportunity to build his own business in his home area. Cheshire South will serve Nantwich, Crewe and surrounding areas.
Former accountant Sam Wright, pictured with her husband Danny O’Reilly, is returning to business a year after the birth of her son and has opted for a career change that will enable her to realise her business ambitions; Sam’s mum also works in care so she has long held an affinity for supporting vulnerable people to be independent.
All of our new owners have recently completed their New Owner Training, which covers everything from marketing and recruitment to carer induction training, compliance, leadership and finance. The second phase of their training will take place in their new offices as they prepare to complete CQC registration and begin trading.
We would like to congratulate Julie, Ben and Sam on the great start they have made already, and look forward to supporting them to put their strategies put into action as they start building awareness of Right at Home in their chosen territories.
