Acacia Homecare provides care to people within the comfort of their own home. Since the doors to Acacia Homecare opened in 2011, the business has steadily grown due to our sterling reputation in supporting customers.
Our initial goal was to start from a new, blank page and rethink the world of care to ensure that it meets the personal needs of each and every customer. The goal was not to measure ourselves against the competition and be 'better than,' but to be different, measuring success against the needs of our customers and be 'better for.'
Acacia Homecare aims to become the standard to which care is measured. Our mission is to grow responsibly to become the best provider of care to the private sector, by offering high quality care from a mature, well-trained, experienced and happy team. We aim to be the market leader in recruitment, pay and staff development to ensure that the team can provide the level of care we would want for our own families.
Acacia Homecare services range from personal and live-in care through to more specialist care such as dementia, MS and complex care and outreach services. Our business is centred around our people - not just our customers, but also our staff. All our care plans are individually tailored and only put in place once the customer and their friends and family are happy.
Becoming an Acacia Homecare member means you are part of a strong family; we collaborate with each other and communication is a key part to how our business is succeeding.
A growing industry
With growing demand from an ageing population and increased focus on support for people suffering from learning disabilities and mental health conditions - coupled with more people wishing to remain at home - the retreat of local authority funding turns small opportunities into a growing need, ready for those with the right care concept and business mindset to step into the gap.

We work as a team and we like to collaborate with all of our Acacia Homecare network. There will be opportunities to meet with the network for mutual support and the sharing of experiences, encouraging you to succeed at providing the best care possible while developing your business.
Why franchise with us?
We have proved that it is possible to succeed in this industry already. Started by a husband and wife team, Acacia Homecare is growing and with the knowledge, expertise and our relationship with other industry professionals, we can provide you with the guidance every step of the way.
The business has grown efficiently through the years by thinking outside of the box and being creative about how we build relationships with other industry professionals. Acacia Homecare has managed to establish itself in its territory by looking at the care industry differently. Our marketing spend on attracting customers is low, as they come through word of mouth and recommendations. Because of this we have built a good reputation for our brand.
Our passion and enthusiasm for Acacia Homecare is what has made us thrive. If you share this and envisage being the leader in the care industry, contact us now. We are ready to hear from you.
Who are we looking for?
Acacia Homecare thrives on communicating and collaborating, so we are looking for driven, hard working and ambitious individuals with great interpersonal skills. They must also be empathetic, with a sense of duty of care.
