Acacia Homecare's history
Acacia Homecare opened its doors in 2012 and we are now celebrating 10 years of service. It was set up by husband and wife team Minal and Sanjeev Chowdhri with the vision of being there to help people do the things they want to do.
We didn’t want to follow the crowd but be the industry leader and pave the way to show what care could really be. Our mutual respect for our employees as well as the customer we look after and putting them at the forefront of the business, elevated Acacia Homecare to a new level in the care sector. Wanting to take this same model and replicate to different parts of the country the franchise brand was born with two other businesses opening in Reading and Stockport.
Over the pandemic period the franchisees saw an average of 35% business growth, contradictory to what many other sectors were experiencing. The health care sector is resilient to most risk as care is a necessity and not a luxury, proving long term sustainability and steady growth.
