Our Franchise Family
We like to think of our team as our Apollo Family. They come from different backgrounds but all have one thing in common: they believe that good care should be at the heart of everything they do. Apollo franchise owners are responsible for running and operating their own franchises independently, delivering a first-rate Apollo care service within their territory. At all times, they can count on the support of our head office support team.
My name is Kristel Thompson. My experience has come from first hand real life experience in being involved in the care of loved ones, knowing and understanding the stress of caring for somebody at home while still trying to live your own life, look after your own family and go to work. Does this sound familiar?My business is very much a family affair! My Mother, who has over 30 years experience as a care assistant in the community assists me in the day to day running of the business and provides invaluable advice regarding service user care plans and assessments. Together we aim to become an agency known to be outstanding and passionate and truly provide the best individual care to assist the service user and their family to improve the Quality of everyone’s lives involved.
I am very passionate about improving the care standards in the East Liverpool area by using effective leadership ensuring our clients are provided with staff who have had quality training, educated and supported, working towards their Health & Social Care NVQs, striving to ensure our clients live independently, safe and happy in the comfort of their own home. I have 7 years’ of valuable experience working in Health & Social Care, gaining a wealth of knowledge supporting and caring for a variety of clients with a wide range of disabilities. I specialised in the care of adults with brain injury with complex needs including physical, cognitive, behavioural and emotional difficulties. I supported them through their rehabilitation; developing their skills to enable them to become more independent.
We are Paul and Diana, a father and daughter partnership who have one mutual goal – to improve the quality of care within South Liverpool. “In my 35 years of working in health and social care I have found that the most important thing, but something that is often ignored is LISTENING to the client. With listening to the client it enables them to remain in control of their lives and be seen as a person not just a condition. “This is what we want for all our clients,” says Paul.
My name is Marcus Bemrose and I am director of Apollo Care (Wirral) ltd. I have always lived and worked on Wirral and after attending Sheffield university I practised law for 30 years before retiring 2 years ago. My passion for care is very personal as I found that looking for a care company that suited the needs of my elderly parents was very difficult. I decided that I would like to become involved in improving home care on Wirral and joined the Apollo Care Team as Director of Apollo Care (Wirral).
I have over 16 years experience of working in the social care sector. At the age of 18 I began working as a home care worker and advanced to working as a home care coordinator for a care provider on Wirral. During this time I developed as passion for social care and became dedicated to ensuring service users received the very best, high quality care.
My name is Suzanne Janvier and I am the registered manager and company director of Apollo Care (South) Wirral. I have over 10 years experience in the care industry gained from many years of caring in the community and nurse training, specialising in the care of adults with physical and learning disabilities. I am passionate about providing our service users with a high standard of care, advocacy and companionship.
We are Pam Wharton and Joanne Longmoor. Between us we have nearly 50 years experience in the Health and Social Care sector.
We had heard about Apollo Care and the fantastic reputation it has built up and were aware that there was an opportunity to set up in Chester.
We discussed buying a franchise and had numerous meeting with Cheryl. We knew straight away that it was time to take the leap of faith and we purchased Apollo Care Chester. We have worked together for 6 years and have become friends. We both have the same values and beliefs on what an excellent care service should look like. We are so excited to be part of the Apollo Care team.
We have recently completed an intense training course to which we couldn’t have been more pleased with. The training is excellent and the ongoing support is invaluable. We are so excited for the future and we know we have the full support of our franchising management team.
Our future goal is to provide outstanding person centred care and to promote independence to the people in the Chester community.
Hi my name is Tracy. I am 47 years old and have four children; Millie, Lucie, Charlie and Poppie. I live with my partner Steve and our two dogs Milo and Gizmo.
Two years ago I took on a role as assistant manager for Apollo Care Wirral Ltd.
I loved every minute of working for Apollo Care- their values and working ethic is second to none- this has led me to the decision to buy my own franchise which I am so excited about.
I am looking forward to my journey ahead and bring my care experience with Southport.
