Two franchisees have joined Home Instead’s network of offices in Lowestoft and Lincoln.
Munish Bhardwaj, owner of Home Instead Lowestoft, has spent several years in senior roles in the maritime industry, travelling across the world. During the pandemic he decided he wanted to move into the care sector.
Nick Moran wanted to launch his franchise after his own experience of trying to find care for his mother. He is keen to get people talking to their ageing parents about their care, before they find themselves in a crisis, not knowing where to turn for support.
‘I know the feeling. Your parents aren’t as fit as they once were and they need some support, but we don’t want to talk about it,’ said Moran.
‘Homecare is becoming increasingly important as we age, more and more people want to remain living independently in their own homes for as long as possible.’
Home Instead, which has over 255 franchise offices, has been providing homecare for older adults across the UK since 2005.
