A franchise out of Tampa, Florida, active since 2007, Acti-Kare opened in Culpeper April 1 of this year. Acti-Kare is a home based business that allows seniors to stay home longer and continue to live a quality life by providing companions to assist them with daily activities so that they can maintain their independence.
Area director, Steven Jewell, said their main focus is to provide “truly compassionate caregivers on a one to one basis.” Being able to provide one caregiver per patient allows consistency in care and a more positive client/companion relationship. “We carefully screen to be sure they (customer care specialist) have a compassion for people. It’s gotta be the right person,” said Jewell.
