“Our vision is simple: We just want to be there to help you do the things that you want to do.”
Hi, I am Amy Stone and I have worked in care from a very young age, caring for my mother at home through her battle with cancer. Mum passed away when I was 17 years old and by that time I was working in a residential home as well as starting to do agency work and had completed extensive volunteer work with adults with learning disabilities at a horticulture centre and evening social group.
I went on to travel to Mexico when I was 18 and worked in an orphanage for 5 months and then travelled for a few weeks. On my return, I started work at a school for children with special needs, a lot of which were very physically disabled with complex needs. This challenged and grew my skills in a lot of aspects regarding communication and physical caring skills such as complex moving and handling and caring for individuals after spinal surgery. It also sadly helped me work with palliative care as we lost at least 1 child each term due to their conditions.
Working in care has been a natural path for me to take and I came into managing home care companies in 2008. Being able to run my own Acacia Homecare business allows me to ensure that the highest quality of care is delivered to our customers. Not only that, but that our care team are well looked after too. Being part of the Acacia Homecare brand means that I can focus on these things and it empowers me to make a difference and a positive impact on how people receive their care at home.
Having been in the industry from a young age, I fully understand the difficult decision it is to make when choosing the right care provider for you or your loved one. We are wholly committed to being person-centred, therefore ensuring that the service we provide is suited to individual needs only. My vision is to ensure that each customer receives the care they need and want – just as Acacia’s vision – I want to be there to help you do the things you want to do.
Care has always been my passion and I truly appreciate that I can now deliver the highest quality of care by leading the way with my team.
Acacia Homecare is not just about the two of us. There is a great family here that we would love for you to meet. Give us a call and come and see us and you can truly understand for yourself.
