Our History
Acqua Doria Limited opened in 2003 to provide homecare in our local community. Our hard work and attention to detail very quickly paid off and we established an excellent reputation for high standards of care, our dedicated and reliable staff ensured that we swiftly became the largest provider of homecare in the Alton area.

Tightening financial budgets led Hampshire County Council to tender their homecare and a company from Manchester were awarded the contracts in Alton leading to our closure in 2015.

Our phone has continued to ring over the past 18 months with enquiries for help. It's clear that the busy local agencies have little available time to help those who don’t desperately need personal care and we began to understand that many of the people we were speaking to really needed some daily assistance to remain at home safely, not necessarily care, but help.

We realised that our extensive knowledge of the local community together with our experience of helping people could be applied to many different sectors and we started to research the kind of support the community required. With renewed enthusiasm and a desire to once again provide the highest standard of service possible, we reopened our doors.
 

Is life becoming more challenging? Are there times when you struggle to manage all those daily tasks that allow you to stay safe, healthy and above all independant inyour own home? Whether it's short term help you need following an illness or operation or a more longterm solution, we're happy to be there for you. We can offer support on a daily or weekly basis to ensure that you have everything you need.

An extra pair of hands!
We're all working longer hours and spending less time at home than we would like. Do you find that you never seem to have any "me time"? Time to relax and enjoy life the way you once could? Perhaps this is because the pace of life is so fast and we all push ourselves to reach perfection in every aspect of our life. We can help you create that perfect image - at least at home. We can take care of all those annoying little domestic jobs allowing you the opportunity to do the things you enjoy.

Domestic Duties
Do you have a relative or friend you worry about? Someone you wish you lived nearer or feel you should spend more time with? Todays families are spread all over the world and many older people live alone. Perhaps we could alleviate some of the worry and pressure you feel by popping in to check someone is alright or helping them around the house. We would be happy to pop in every day or once a week for your peace of mind.
