We are a husband and wife family business based in Plympton, Plymouth. With over 30 years’ experience in healthcare combined, we decided to create Holmes Ear Care with the aim of serving the community wherever needed – whether that is at work, at home, or at a pop-up clinic; daytimes, evenings and weekends.
Liam started his healthcare career at the age of 19 – upon leaving college, he undertook an apprenticeship at an independent Opticians and became an Accredited Dispensing Optician in 2004. With an interest in technology and engineering, he is also a master spectacle and lens maker. It was this love of technology, in fact, that led Liam to the idea of starting an otoscopy and wax removal business. When he heard about the state-of-the-art advances recently made in the field of ear-related healthcare, he jumped at the chance to obtain training from Tympa Health Technologies and is now qualified in Otoscopy and Microsuction.
Terrie-May’s introduction into healthcare was in a slightly different industry – music! Having sung all her life, including in the West End and for cruise ship companies such as P&O and Holland America Line, she decided to create and perform a range of shows for nursing homes and care facilities. In a bid to understand her clientele and their needs better, she undertook qualifications in Dementia Care and developed a deep passion for serving vulnerable populations. This year, she started Holmes Ear Care with Liam after also completing her Otoscopy and Microsuction training. As a sufferer of tinnitus herself, she understands all too well the struggle some people face with health problems related to ears and hearing and is keen to help patients within the community.
Holmes Ear Care is available for consultations and ear wax removal in Plymouth and the surrounding areas
