Radfield Home Care is expanding into Milton Keynes as it welcomes its first franchise partner of 2020.
Jane Franks, the new owner and director of Radfield Home Care Milton Keynes, joins the business having worked as a HR director for a food franchise in the town, and is also heavily involved in a local children’s bereavement charity.
Having followed the home care sector with interest, Franks was inspired to make a career change after her mum suffered a fall and ended up in hospital.
“Witnessing first-hand mum’s decline in hospital and the subsequent speed of recovery once she was being cared for in the familiar surroundings of home, gave me the inspiration to set up my own home care business,” explained Franks.
Reflecting on her discovery of Radfield, Franks added: “Having completed extensive research and initially meeting the Radfield team at the National Franchise Exhibition, I narrowed my search and Radfield were at the top of my list.
“As a family-run business, Radfied had captured in a business the exact quality and ethics I was looking for. The model is truly person centred, helping clients, their families, carers and franchise partners. I could see that senior care was something I could really care about as a business, my business.”
Having recently completed the second phase of the Radfield Runway 20-day training programme, Franks will now begin working with the marketing team to attract her first clients and carers ready for when she begins trading in the coming weeks.
“I am excited by the potential of the Radfield brand and proud to be able to support the communities that make up Milton Keynes. I am not only passionate about providing high-quality client centred care, but I am also dedicated to providing a great place for our carer professionals to work,” she said.
