Apollo, like the universe, is constantly expanding.
Apollo has made a great impression in the Merseyside area with most territories being catered for. Wherever you are on the Wirral or in Liverpool, your loved ones can be served by one of our kind, generous and conscientious care assistants.
But now we’re branching out even further.
Joanne and Pam have recently completed their franchisee training and are about to get stuck into setting up the Chester care office. These are not business owners with a wide portfolio of business properties. They do not have millions to invest. They are not looking to turnaround a quick profit and move onto another opportunity. These women, like our other franchisees, are in it for the long term. They have a strong background working in care already and now they are bringing their skills and expertise to the fore, making their own impression on the social care sector.
Joanne Longmoor has worked in the health and social care sector for 19 years. She most recently spent 12 years fulfilling her role as a registered care manager in a retirement complex and describes providing excellent quality care as her “passion”.
Pam also has vast professional expertise, having worked for over 30 years in health and social care, including eight years employed as Head of Care. She also brings with her the personal experience of seeing her loved ones on the receiving end of poor care, giving her “the passion to ensure the delivery of both an excellent level of service, and an exemplary standard of care to support those individuals and their families to enable their loved ones to live independently in their own homes.”
Joanne first heard about Apollo Care in 2011, right at our inception: “Believe it or not, I always knew it was written in the stars that I would end up with my very own franchise with Apollo one day.”
Now is not always the best time. Events have to happen in your life, or lessons need to be learnt to prepare you for facing a new challenge. For Joanne and Pam, “one day” came eight years later.
