At Bridgewater Home Care we specialise in providing non-medical care for vulnerable adults from the comfort of their own home. We believe that everyone deserves access to high quality, reliable and trustworthy care that is delivered with dignity, and centred around the individual. To us it is more than providing a home care service, it is about enhancing the lives of others through care, compassion, friendship, and support.

Since opening our doors in 2010, we have rapidly become the leading home care provider in local communities. Providing the highest quality care at home is at the heart of everything we do. From simple companionship to full time specialist care, we give you and your family peace of mind that your loved one is in safe hands.

We are a dynamic home care provider that uses the latest, most effective, resources to enhance our operations and provide a service that is unrivalled. We embrace change and invest heavily in our processes and our people which has created the Bridgewater Home Care brand as it is today.

We have established an excellent, dependable reputation in the market-place and are excited to be offering our franchise business model to like-minded, ambitious individuals to share in our success.

Bridgewater Home Care is an energetic, forward-thinking franchise. When you join Bridgewater, not only do you become part of a reputable brand, but you also become part of something special – the Bridgewater family; built on a foundation of the 3 important brand values of quality, reliability and trust.

As a management franchise opportunity, you will be responsible for running your own home care service, engaging in activities such as recruitment and management of staff members, ensuring high quality standards, overseeing the day to day running of the business and developing and promoting the business in your local community.

We are a UK born and raised company and so have developed a replicable model that is designed specifically to suit the needs of the UK care market.
