Musician Nikolas Metaxas has dedicated his latest song ‘Change the World’ to all our staff providing care to the elderly and vulnerable in their own homes.
He has honoured carers with the song to thank them for supporting thousands of people with care in their own homes during the current COVID-19 outbreak.
Thirty-two-year-old Nikolas said: “My uncle, Peter Angelides, is a Managing Director at Abacare and we chatted recently about the amazing work all of the staff are doing in their local communities for the elderly and how they are protecting the NHS from being overloaded by shielding those who need care from the virus.
“What I heard was so inspiring that I wanted to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who is changing lives every day and to everyone protecting communities across the country. I know often they can feel unappreciated at times, but it’s important that they know that it’s them who are making day-to-day life for many elderly and vulnerable individuals that much easier and providing love and support to our loved-ones, when we cannot do it ourselves.
“I would like to dedicate my song ‘Change the World’ to all the Abacare social care workers out there. I hope my song shows people there is a little light at the end of the tunnel and I hope it goes someway to lift people’s spirits.”

Nikolas was born in New York and is the eldest of four children. At the age of three he showcased a love for singing along to his dad’s favourite records.
He studied Music Production and Engineering at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Nikolas now lives in London and cites his musical influences as Jeff Buckley, Bon Iver and Bonobo.
Peter Angelides, our Managing Director, said: “My nephew, Nikolas, is an extremely talented young man and it is wonderful that he is dedicating his song to all of the amazing staff at Abacare.
“Services like ours are alleviating additional pressures on the NHS and its resources, which we know are being tested to the limit at the moment. Our role is to maintain people’s health in the comfort of their own homes and to keep them safe. We’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Nikolas for dedicating his song to our staff, we are sure they will all love it.”
