A BRIEF HISTORYIn 2000 Alida, the owner of Alcaricare; realised that there was a gap in the medical market for people to be able to recover completely from an illness after her mother had a heart attack. Her dream was 7 years in the making, when she finally opened the doors of Alcaricare in January 2009. In 2014, Alida was able to purchase a home for Alcaricare. Alida has Staff Nursing experience and she has staff who assist her with administration, domestic work and care giving.
