“Hi, I’m Cheryl White and I founded Apollo Care in 2011 with my mum, Susan after we had both worked in Health and Social Care for many years. During my time working as a Community Nurse and my mum as a Social Care Manager, we realised the need for better home care. Home Care providers were not offering flexibility or tailoring their services to meet the care needs of each individual service user.
While visiting my patients at their homes, I witnessed first-hand the effects of social isolation on elderly people in my area. I contacted several providers to try and access support for these people and to be honest, no-one seemed to really care as much as I did.
I wanted to do something better than what was being offered! And so I took action and created Apollo Care!
Within just 3 years, Apollo Care became an award-winning care provider and I realised I needed to spread the good work we were doing further. I took the decision to franchise the business to enable more people to receive better care, and for others with the same passion as me to create their own business in the care sector.
Apollo Care continues to grow as demand for our services increases. Each of our offices are owned and managed by people who share our passion for caring and providing a service that supports and enables people to stay in the place where they feel most loved and secure…. HOME.
If care is your passion and you’re interested in becoming an Apollo Care franchisee, take a good look at this website and apply to us for more information.
I hope to speak to you soon!”
Why choose Apollo Care?
In 2016 we were honoured to be runner up in the Merseyside Business Woman of the year awards (entrepreneur category).
In 2015 we were delighted to receive an award for outstanding contribution to care.
In 2015 we were awarded Newcomer of The Year in the Wirral Business awards.
We had one goal when we started the business and that was to improve the home care provision across South Liverpool. After nearly twelve months we are so happy with what we have achieved. We regularly monitor the care plans and risk assessments for each individual we support and where necessary involve a significant others. The review process ensures we are meeting the client’s desired outcomes and also allows us to gain feedback on how they rate the service.
I have been friends with and known Cheryl and Sue for over 25 years so I knew that joining the Apollo Care Team would help me build a business where people are always put first. We will succeed in becoming outstanding with them both at our side with their experience, passion and drive so that the relatives of our service users can carry on with life and spend more precious quality time when seeing their loved ones.
I've been running my business for around six months and the support and training I have received from day one has been fantastic. My business has gone from strength to strength and is getting lots of positive feedback. The support and guidance from Cheryl and her mum Sue has had a big part to play in Apollo Care's (East Liverpool) early success - long may this continue.
