Caring Brands International
Emerging healthcare trends on a global scale continue to demonstrate a growing need for homecare and support services for individuals and families. The combination of aging demographics, a shift from institutional care and increased cost savings are all factors in a move to sustain individual independence through community based care and supportive services.
In 2013, Caring Brands International
was developed and launched as a future-facing healthcare enterprise to address the global shift that has begun. The first acquisition in September 2013 under the enterprise umbrella was Bluebird Care in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. In September 2014, Just Better Care, operating in Australia joined the family of care franchise brands under Caring Brands International.
Today, there are three market-leading franchise care brands with more than 300 franchise owners operating 530 locations in seven countries. Together they provide service to over 200,000 people annually and generate nearly a billion dollars U.S. in combined system-wide sales.
