About us

Christian and Sally Wilse know how to start and manage businesses.

Husband and wife team bring complimentary skills to the organisation.  

Honesty and a drive to serve the partners who trust them with investment, is just as important to them as helping people to age better in the UK. 

Employing outstanding people who may find themselves distanced from the jobs market for one reason or another, recognising their skills and supporting them to do their best is the mantra for Seniors Helping Seniors globally. Christian and Sally have the same approach as master franchisors for the UK. The couple are mindful of one exception, partners are not employees!

Partners are independent business owners.

Sally’s background in comparative health care systems helped the couple identify the strength of the Seniors Helping Seniors care brand. 

They were looking to enter an industry that needed a new approach, but Care seemed out of reach at first. Until the Seniors Helping Seniors co-founders and the ethos of the brand provided all the solutions.

Christian has started businesses that became worldwide successes from scratch, and he excels in crisis management, operations and strategic planning. Sally’s marketing expertise and her culture and teambuilding skills have helped position Seniors Helping Seniors in the UK.  The couple make their teams and their customers raving fans.

Corporates used to hire Sally and Christian to start ideas from scratch and then repeat success globally. They enjoyed leading by example, identifying talent, teaching and providing unending support – they didn’t enjoy corporate life so much in the 90’s and 00’s and they didn’t enjoy how everyone else seemed to come off better!   They knew they had the skills to be master franchisors for a brand that cares about improving society.

Seniors Helping Seniors has been lovingly nurtured in the UK for ten years and has six happy and thriving offices. Sally and Christian work well with the American founders and operations team. They champion all the partners delivering outstanding Seniors Helping Seniors services because everyone is helping to solve the very real challenges of an ageing society.

As the world ages, people need access to trusted care and rewarding jobs that they enjoy doing and pay well.

The couple admired the brand for doing both simultaneously. “It’s about people power.” Sally says,” Uniquely fit for purpose twenty-four years ago and unique today.  Seniors helping Seniors was built from the ground up with this ethos and it has never deviated. There is a beauty in the simplicity of the brand.  It was stunning to learn how doing the right things for the right reasons – love- is what it took to disrupt the care sector!  Our job is to encourage great people into Seniors Helping Seniors and to help them to achieve their goals.”

Christian and Sally have four adult children and three grandchildren. Their close family lives in UK, Norway and America.

Music lovers, foodies and nurturers; friends and business partners say Sally and Christian are great fun, reliable and trustworthy people who never turn away from the difficult conversations, or hard work. They have solutions because they keep an enquiring mind on everything new and different and they are energetic, committed and easy to be with.”

 

Our Mission

Our non-medical care focusses on keeping well.   Preventing problems is very much right-place, right-time in the UK.

The cost benefits and efficiencies in our processes secure the in-home elderly care business model. 

Our clients benefit from a variety of services, not limited to: light housekeeping, cooking and shopping, DIY, gardening, medication reminders, escort to appointments, exercise and community events, experienced care for conditions such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and more.  All our services are delivered with sincere companionship because our focus is same-person care and carefully matching carer to client.

Fully managing all elements of service provides outstanding customer experiences and supports outstanding carers.

Our carers are staying active, staying social, and staying financially stable with an hourly wage which is above the Living Wage. Our franchise partners make money through doing good. 

The teachable business model exemplifies profit with purpose, empowerment, self-governance, thought leadership and the value of local expertise.

 

Franchise Testimonials

"Our key driver to own a Seniors Helping Seniors franchise was the opportunity to work for ourselves whilst offering a much needed “everyone wins” service to the families in our community."

"The Seniors Helping Seniors franchise came to us as a real breath of fresh air. Initial training was 5*. Follow up and support has been there when we’ve needed it. We’ve enjoyed the start-up and we are realising our ambitions to do good and secure our futures with this franchise"

Andy says, “Seniors Helping Seniors had the right mix of social enterprise for us. It deals with two critical community issues, elderly care and employment and it uses our expertise and our passions.”  They asked to fast track their training to be ready to fulfil the post-Christmas enquiries.
