About the employer
Apollo Care is a home care provider that is owned and directed by a qualified community nurse. The company is dedicated to providing a tailored service enabling service users to retain a greater level of independence and remain living in their own homes for as long as possible. We offer all of our service users a package of care to suit their individual needs and all of our care staff are hired directly by us. This enables us to offer continuity and suitability to match each services user’s personality and care needs. We guarantee our care staff will provide excellent standards of care, arrive on time, and follow an individual care plan that will be regularly reviewed to provide the best ongoing support to suit the service user.
Apollo Care was founded in 2011 by Cheryl and Susan White after they had both worked in Health and Social Care for many years. During their time working as a Community Nurse and Social Care Manager, they realised the need for a Home Care provider that focussed on flexible, individualised care packages that were tailored to meet the care needs of each individual service user.
While visiting her patients at home, Cheryl had witnessed the effects of social isolation on elderly people in her area and after contacting several providers to try and access support for these people the idea for Apollo Care was born.
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.
Your full role and responsibilities will be set out by your employer. Apollo Care will provide you with all of the on-the-job training you need to up-skill in your role, and your 20% off-the-job learning will be incorporated as part of your working day.
