One of the things we love doing most at Acre Care is helping clients to stay independent for as long as possible. It’s proven that many older people prefer to remain in their own home and actually stay healthier when in their own personal surroundings. Of course every person’s individual circumstances are different but if a person wants to stay at home then we are there to help as much as we possibly can.

Some clients need more help than others. One of our brilliant ladies is Freda who at 100 years young, has a weekly visit from carer, Jackie. Jackie helps out with some of the more demanding household tasks and chores. Freda recently sent us a lovely letter and in it she wrote, “I have just had a most memorable 100th birthday and am thankfully at present still ‘compos mentis’!  Apart from wretched arthritis in my knees and hands, I am able to organise myself with the excellent help of Jackie once weekly. She is a good person, thoroughly reliable and kind. I know she will do anything for me and I enjoy her visits. I have also had reliable and good help from Julie. I would recommend your Agency to anybody.”

We asked Freda if we could use this feedback on our website and she was more than happy to oblige. We’re extremely proud to be providing such a service, not just to Freda but also to hundreds of other people in the local area who need help and are humbled that she took the time to write such a lovely letter to us.

If you or someone you know wants to stay independent and have care in their home then do please contact us to see how we can help. We happily answer questions over the phone or come and visit to determine exactly what level of care can be provided. Call us on 01903 505438 or fill out our contact form here
