A locally based business, Caring Support at Home is for sale. It's the business that operates from the office opposite the Rising Sun pub.
June Jones and Liz Dee, the owners who started it 5 years ago, are reluctantly having to retire later this year. Whilst it was expected that June would be heading for retirement at this stage, it was their plan for Liz to continue and grow the business with or without a replacement for June.
Unfortunately, Liz has a health problem from years ago that has recurred and she has to manage pain and reduce stress as an important part of her well being.
"We have very reluctantly decided that we must exit the business together" says Liz.
Caring Support at Home currently has about 30 clients served by 60 carers and Liz and June want to see the business continue in safe hands.
There are lots of very happy customers in Haddenham, and surrounding villages, Thame, Princes Risborough and surrounding villages and in the Amersham and Chesham area. This is an ideal business opportunity for an individual or two to take over a thriving and profitable business that does a lot of good in the local community.
"We have done the hard work of starting it up" says June "and whoever takes it on will have all the systems and processes in place to take the business to the next level. We need to start handing over the business during October / November and we would help during a transition phase and introduce customers and carers to the new owner. The business has grown steadily and been profitable for the last three years and Liz and I are sorry not to see it through to the next stage."
The families of all customers know about their plans and without exception they want it all to continue as is.
"I do hope you find the right buyer" said the daughter of a couple in Thame. "It has been a life-saver for my parents and we know there isn't any better out there."
If you or someone you are interested in purchasing and running this business, please contact Liz or June on 01844 292322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org without delay.
