Super-mum Michelle leads the way for SureCare Rugby & North Warwickshire

Change Text Size A A A

SureCare franchisees come from all walks of life, each with their own individual reasons and driving factors for wanting to make a difference in their community.


With the company branching out further and further across the country, we’re fascinated by the personal stories behind our franchise operators. And stories don’t come much more personal than the operator of SureCare services in Rugby & North Warwickshire, Michelle Sparkes.

Michelle has had first-hand experience of the need for dedicated care on a daily basis, having taken care of her son Adam for many years. Adam lives with a number of disabilities and requires regular support, which can make day-to-day life fairly difficult without a little extra help.

In the past, Michelle has often relied upon home care companies for respite, but has seen varying standards in the service she and her son have received over the years. This has made it difficult to secure consistent levels of care, and has become the driving force for leading the way in her own business in the care industry.

Hoping to make a real difference in the local community, Michelle made the decision to run her own home care business, and we’re proud to welcome her to the SureCare network. Having previously worked as a business development manager in the auto industry, we have high hopes that she can transfer and apply the acquired business skills to the job.

Michelle has successfully gained registration with the Care Quality Commission and will lead a team of management staff and care workers, along with the help of her partner Derek Brook. Their acquired experience and knowledge of personal care in their own home life will certainly add to the quality of services seen across the region.

By combining all of these elements, this local SureCare franchise is all set to provide quality care services to residents across Rugby and North Warwickshire.

 

Testimonials

"I started off as a carer and then worked as a manager in the office of a care franchise, so I chose a franchise when I decided to start my own business. Care is heavily regulated and when I started the regulations were in flux, so I wanted the support of a franchisor. I’ve now got about 100 service users and have built up a team of 40 staff. I need much less franchisor support now, but it’s always there if needed and I talk regularly with other franchisees. We swap tips, advice and ideas so the franchise comes with a useful network."

"I have worked in Care Sector as a Senior Social Worker over 16 years and I am therefore fully aware that the compliance, quality assurance and legislative framework are very complex and time consuming. I chose a SureCare franchise to tackle time consuming issues so that II am able to concentrate on business development, relationship building, market growth and staff training. I now have more than 109 service users and, with the support of SureCare, our weekly hours have more than tripled in 18 months and we are looking to double them again by summer 2017."
