Quality Service Awards

We are proud of the fact that Acorn received the first-ever Quality Service Award from the Board of Commissioners of Orange County.  This photo shows County Commissioner Mark Dorosin presenting the award to Mary Lynn Ryerson and Lorenzo Mejia, Acorn co-founders, at the monthly commissioner meeting held on September 16, 2014.  We received another award in 2016.

The award was granted based on our passion for serving the elder market and treating caregivers right.

Treating caregivers with respect is a big part of what we do.  Great caregivers are unique people.  They do critical work.  It’s important to us that they are treated with dignity and respect.  We do what we can to recognize their unique situations.  We avoid a one-size-fits-all approach.  We get nearly all our new caregiver applications via referral from existing caregivers.  Nothing makes us more proud than when an applicant says:  “My friend told me you are different.  You really care.”
