Why Acorn?

National and Local Recognitions

Our founder, Lorenzo Mejia, was named the 2014 Dementia Care Professional of the Year by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.  That same year we received a Quality Service Award from the Board of Commissioners of Orange County.  We received one again in 2016.  We are the only company in the Triangle that can boast these recognitions.

The Best Caregivers!

Many people say they have good caregivers.  We believe that the caregivers you get through Acorn are superior.  They are caregiving professionals who have committed themselves to caring for elderly people and those suffering with dementia, Alzheimer’s and other conditions.  We believe they are the best in Chapel Hill – Durham – Raleigh area.  They are not merely earning an hourly wage until a better opportunity comes along.  Each one has gone through an extensive multi-step screening process.  Learn more about our Caregiver Screening Process.

Personality Assessments

In addition to a rigorous in-house screening, all caregivers must perform well on a personality assessment.  The purpose of this is to verify that the caregiver exhibits the aptitudes needed for superior home care, as well as an ability to bond with patients and adapt to their changing needs.
