Any Little Thing Ltd – Assisting the Elderly

About us

We’re Lisa Elliott-Vance and Lucy Hutchinson, proud owners of Any Little Thing.

Bonding over a shared love of coffee and hot cross buns, we quickly realised we shared the same ethos, drive and vision for helping the elderly in their own homes.

Working together on Any Little Thing is a dream come true. Providing trustworthy and reliable support in people’s homes is so vital to health and happiness. It truly makes us happy to use our extensive care experience and training to serve in
this way.

Combined, we don’t know anyone more passionate about giving the elderly and vulnerable a life they love.


Why we set up

We set up Any Little Thing after being in care for many years and witnessing that the Elderly’s needs were taken care of i.e.. personal care & medication as well as any other medically related needs. However, their wants were not covered.

We decided to take action and start up a business that could put services in place that would achieve all of those wants for our clients.

Carers may only do certain tasks, e.g. They will prepare meals, but ONLY in the microwave. We can assist clients in cooking a fresh meal just how they like it.

Many household chores can be covered. We are so passionate about providing a very professional and trustworthy service.
Our main aims are to enable and empower the elderly, allowing them to live in their own homes for longer.

The Any Little Thing team has a growing market place

If you’re considering buying a franchise in the care sector, then you will already understand the opportunity in the market. With the harsh reality is, we’re all going to get old.

As Any Little Thing business owners, we have a choice to make as to what support for the elderly, the ill, the disabled and the vulnerable is going to look like in the future. That’s where you fit in.

The care sector is a growing market. And it always will be. We are living longer than we used to with medical advances and better diets as well as living conditions. Therefore additional support in the home has become more paramount for our older generations nationwide.

Which means that the number of people needing care is increasing too

As the UK population lives longer, there is an increasing need for quality care. The UK care industry is currently worth a whopping £7.8 billion per year.

By 2024, more than 20% of the population will be aged 65 and over
9 million people in the UK will be over the age of 85 by 2020

A staggering 2.5 million people in the UK will be over 85 by 2035

Whilst increased life expectancy is to be celebrated, old age brings with it a plethora of complications.

With modern family life now both sons and daughters holding down jobs they struggle to offer the same level of support to aging parents that they once did.

Families now tend to live further apart, and the needs of aging loved ones become increasingly complicated.

All of which means that calling on the services of a care company isn’t just a last resort anymore, it’s a necessity.

So many people think of starting their own business – not just for the financial rewards but for the opportunity to be your own boss and run your own life. But the downside is that although you get all the rewards, you also take the risks. Taking on a franchise within a proven operation reduces those risks substantially. By joining Any Little Thing Ltd, you can reduce them even more!
