Kishore Sapkota-Owner

Hello,I am Kishore Sapkota the owner of Home Instead Senior Care Folkestone,Hythe & Ashford.

Thank you for visiting our website please give me a call on 01303 847899 if you need any further information regarding care. I will be more then happy help.It’s my conviction that good care can transform someone’s life – that’s why I want to make a difference!

Growing up in a large family taught me to respect and value older people. There is so much we can all learn from older generations. Sadly, this positive view of older people isn’t as widespread as it should be and when I saw the poor standards of care that many senior citizens experience, I decided I had to do something to change this. That’s why I’m proud to be with Home Instead Senior Care and I look forward to having the opportunity to help you, and those you love.

I am deeply associated with the place I live and I would like to give back to the community by providing kind of care that I would like to provide to my own older family members that is why to me,its personal.I was running a successful restaurant business prior to this which taught me to produce a product  with perfection and care .Home Instead Senior Care services would be design to suit your need and requirement as we tailor this service to individual need with careful consultation.

I am an active member of Folkestone Nepalese Community and Folkestone Rotary Club.I live with my wife and two daughters.

I am delighted to provide this unique care service for older people in our community with the active involvement and participation in the local community.I would be grateful if you kindly give me advise and support so that my team and I can make a real difference to the lives of older people living in our area.

Carina Ellis-Care Manager

I joined Home Instead in April 2017 as a care manager. I have the pleasure of working along the side the franchise owner and helping to set up the Folkestone office. This is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to hitting the ground running with Home Instead.

7 years ago, after moving from Margate to Dover, I started my career in care as a care coordinator for a domiciliary care company. I have worked my way up the ladder to deputy manager and then in 2014 becoming a registered manager.

I was surprised when I first joined health and social care how difficult it can be but also how hard CAREGivers work out there in the community and truly want to make a difference. This makes it a very rewarding role to be in and great industry to be a part of. Providing high quality care and ensuring people receive the service they need to stay in their own homes is very important to me.

 I was attracted to Home Instead initially because of their reputation, but also because you can truly see how much they care and want to change the face aging as part of their mission. Everyone I have met have been very nice and welcoming and are driven by same ethos and principle to care.

I have 1 pug, Benson, 1 cat named Shadow and 1 rabbit Caramel. I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family and close friends. I enjoy reading, music and watching football and supporting my team, Arsenal.

Philippa Graham-CAREGiver Experience Co-ordinator

I come to work to make a difference. If I don’t impact people or people don’t need or rely on me, I’m doing something wrong.

I joined Home Instead back in June 2020 to get away from my family during lockdown… Only kidding, I wanted to make that difference and I wanted to help. Whilst my CV for the last few years doesn’t suggest it, healthcare and wellbeing have always been careers I’ve wanted to pursue.

As a CareGiver, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I immersed myself into everything that Home Instead does for vulnerable people and their families. In doing so, I realised that the office team were pretty cool, and I knew a future in other parts of the business would always be of interest.

Fast forward to 2021 and I am now looking after the training and recruitment for the company and am very excited about how we maximise this to help the organisation expand.

If I’m not training or recruiting, you can find me walking my dogs, hugging my cats to death or being a social butterfly. I love being around my family and friends .


Dr Ruth Auger-Trainer

I come from an academic background, but my research has always been about people in our local community.  After leaving academic life in 2018, I joined at Home Instead as a part-time CAREGiver before moving into the office in October 2019. It was a very natural transition to delivering our assessment training programme and I am committed to strengthening the training that we provide for our CAREGivers. 

Home Instead’s ethos is based on values that I am passionate about:  promoting lifelong choice and delivering person-centered care that acknowledges people as individuals.  I have worked in some large organisations, so I love being in an office where we all know each other and share the same commitment to everyone we work with and support.

I am an animal lover and have two Golden Retrievers and four cats that all get on extremely well.  I have a large garden that keeps me extremely fit, and I relax by watching American drama series.
