Meet Our Team

About our Acacia Angels

Our Acacia Angels are specially selected to join our team of carers through our rigorous recruitment process.  They are the foundation of our organisation and we provide them with all the necessary training required to ensure that your care is given safely.

An Acacia Angel is naturally passionate about giving to others, genuine, kind and compassionate.  No matter what your care needs are they will ensure that you are comfortable and treat you with dignity and respect.

We know it can be daunting to allow a stranger to come into your home so we will introduce you to our team straight away and the Acacia Angels will put you at ease so you can start to build a bond between you.

Meet the Acacia Angels

Tracey Sheedy Tracey Sheedy

“Hi, I’m Tracey Sheedy and I am now the Operations Manager having initially joined as Care Manager for maternity cover. I started my journey in care 30 years ago when a much loved relative of ours needed care and due to having two young daughters at the time, we knew we needed the help to look after her. I have managed multi sites as a Regional Manager as well as being a Registered Manager. I absolutely love what I do, I have a passion for quality in care and I very much value the feedback from staff and customers to tell us what we do well and what we can do better.”

Kajal Patel Kajal Patel

“Hi I’m Kajal and I am the Care Manager here at Acacia Homecare. I have been in the care sector since I was 17. As well as managing the team in the office, I also visit customers in their own homes as I feel it’s always nice to put a name to the face. My job is to ensure that the care we provide is of the highest standards. Going out meeting customers is the most rewarding part of my role.”

Dee Kaur Dee Kaur

“Hi there, I’m Dee and I have been with Acacia since 2015 having first joined as a care worker. Soon after, I joined the office team as a care coordinator and then moved onto a recruitment role. I am now the Live in Care Lead and my role involves doing the care assessment for new customers, recruiting the right live-in carer to suit their needs and being the point of contact for both our live-in carers and customers. I really enjoy my role as I have experienced various aspects of the business and can provide a much better service for our customers through my first hand knowledge and understanding of the different care requirements that we may come across.”

My background is in retail and I am also a Bollywood dance teacher. Every day at Acacia Homecare is busy and I am always ready for any challenges and will happily adapt to any situations that arise. I really do enjoy working here at Acacia Homecare.”
