Delivering so much more than care home supplies

As a family-owned business supplying over 3 000 products to care homes across England and Wales, Acticare has a long tradition of care, service and support.

A huge part of our success is our deep understanding, built up over almost 20 years, that while care homes must prioritise quality care and a dignified later-life lifestyle for their residents, they need to do so while still operating as a successful business.

This means meeting residents’ needs effectively and compassionately without impacting profitability.

It’s not always easy to count the cost of care, but by working closely with our clients, we deliver meaningful support that makes a real difference.

You care, we care

Our extensive range of products, both own-brand and from specially selected suppliers, have been chosen for their quality and efficacy. These premium products enhance the fragrance of your care home, reduce reliance on single-use plastics, and add efficiency to your cleaning practices because you use less to achieve a superior result.

To further help in this regard, we offer comprehensive COSHH, application and dilution training so your staff always know how to use the right products in the right quantities.

This has the dual benefit of not only raising and maintaining hygiene standards in all areas of your home but also improving your CQC ratings. In fact, there’s a positive link between our products and service, and care homes achieving statutory compliance.

The added value of clarity

We know it can be challenging in a pressurised environment to align budgets and costs – without compromising on care. This is why we supply detailed monthly profitability impact reports on product usage and associated costs as a standard part of our service.

This clear and transparent analysis of your spending helps you track costs so you can budget more effectively, highlights areas of excessive use and waste, and provides a workable action- plan to address them.

Meet our team

Our family, your family

Founded in 2006 by Phil Boyman, Acticare started as Active Rehab Equipment, a company specialising in pressure-relieving products for the elderly and disabled.

Phil quickly built up the business as one you could rely on for quality products, quality service and open, honest communication.

Today, Acticare supplies hundreds of care homes with everything from beds to bedpans, paper products to PPE, and first aid to furnishings. Operating from our purpose-built premises specifically designed to ensure optimum operational efficiency, we can despatch and deliver your orders in full and on time – every time.

Yet, despite our impressive growth, we remain firmly rooted in the family values on which Phil founded the company all those years ago . And family is still very much at the heart – and helm – of Acticare, with the next generation now leading the way.
