Live-in and home care Carers & Recruitment

Rock Star Awards 2019

The Rock Star Awards celebrate the achievements of young people aged 16–26 across Dorset and Hampshire. They showcase young people that have demonstrated strength, initiative and hard work, sometimes in the face of adversity.

At Agincare, we employ a number of young carers and passionately believe in supporting the development of their careers. We were therefore delighted to sponsor this year’s ‘Young Carer’ award.

Spring is in the air

The residents and staff have been enjoying watching the local wildlife make use of our gardens. The birds have been been visiting and making use of the bird houses that we created last summer.

In February we had a fantastic afternoon of ten pin bowling. Some of our residents had never played before whereas some were pros.

Here are some pictures of our residents enjoying the game.
