Our Mission

Our goal at Acorn Home Care Services is to provide compassionate, non-medical care to seniors, those recovering from surgery, new and expectant mothers and other loved ones. Options include 24-hour live-in care, weekly, weekend or hourly care. We can arrange for services to individuals residing in assisted-living facilities and nursing homes. We serve Chapel Hill, Durham, Hillsborough, Pittsboro and surrounding areas in Orange, Chatham, Durham and Wake counties.

We are fully insured with bonding and liability insurance to give you greater peace of mind. We operate as a registry and refer highly qualified caregivers who are self-employed. Our caregivers are carefully screened through a meticulous, multi-step process. Unlike caregivers at other agencies who may simply work as hourly employees, Acorn caregivers are committed to the home care profession and are passionate about helping others.

Contact us today to schedule a no-obligation visit at your home to see if Acorn is the right fit for you or your loved ones.
