Local Testimonials: Read what your neighbors are saying about Home Care Assistance!

  • In 2013 my father had a stroke after providing two years of care for my mother with dementia. We weren't sure what to do but once we met Jill and her team from Home Care Assistance, we felt so much better about keeping mother and father at home. The managers were great about coaching and supporting the caregivers while also guiding us. I couldn't be more thankful. Bless you all for the work you do.

  • My parents are in their late 80s but still live at home. Their mobility is limited but they are determined to stay "interdependent". All of their children, us included, visit regularly and do light chores, assistance, and errands. But, it was clear that they needed someone to be there regularly to check up on them and their needs. Currently we have someone, who they are very pleased with, come in two times a week for four hours at a time. We hope they have her come in more often - when they are ready. This has been a good start for all involved. Kathy, the owner of this firm, totally understood the needs and desires of my parents and us, and how to approach the solution. I am convinced that as conditions change Home Care Assistance will be an invaluable source of help on determining and finding new solutions. We are very pleased.

  • They were very professional, they were very prompt and responsive in setting up the home care in a short period of time. They worked with my in-laws getting them to accept they care that they really needed. They were available 24 hours.
    Alameda, CA
  • The driver arrived in front of my building early, called a few minutes before the designated time, got me to the appointment early despite commute traffic, waited until the procedure was over, and drove me home. She was warm, efficient, questioned if I was fine or needed anything else. Also setting up the appointment with their office was smooth, friendly, and reassuring as was subsequent billing. I highly recommend for any procedure where the medical provider says the patients cannot/should not drive themselves and the patients do not wish to impose on friends or family.

  • The agency has always been quite willing to work with us to find the right placement. They have been very responsive and easy to work with. The male attendant we currently have is awesome. He knows what to do, how to do it, doesn't shy away from things to be done. He feeds my Dad well balanced meals, helps him with bathing and exercising. We are all very happy with him.
    San Leandro, CA
  • Thank you, Home Care Assistance Oakland team, for everything you all have done. You bring a quality of caring and compassion which few can match. Your caregivers have been wonderful to work with and we know it is because of the detail you put into finding the right caregiver for each situation. We also appreciate your on-call 24/7 support too!

  • As a private professional fiduciary I am always needing caregiver assistance for many of my clients. I have found HCA to be one of the best I have worked with. Jill in the Oakland office is superb in her responsiveness to meet the needs of my clients. The personal service from the admin office and the caregivers is excellent. They are there when needed and can supply a caregiver fast.

  • I have been working with Home Care Assistance since 2013. As a private fiduciary, I come across many situations where elders need in-home care. I've used multiple care agencies over the years and HCA is by far the most responsive, as well as the most supportive to their caregivers. Jesse Walters in the Oakland branch has been particularly reliable and responsive to all my client's needs. I never have to worry when my clients are cared for by HCA.

  • I want to thank you for the incredible and wonderful service you have provided [our client] these past months. The professionalism and care have been excellent and we cannot thank you enough...Please thank everyone on your team for their great work. The entire family and especially [our client] so appreciate it.
    Oakland, CA
  • This team has handled my parents care situation much better than I would have and I am so appreciative. My parents are not perfect and they are both experiencing very challenging health issues (dementia and undiagnosed). We have worked with 2 agencies prior to Home Care Assistance and we finally found a fit. We wanted a team who would be patient with us, help coach our family, and work with the caregivers. We learned the best way to work with a caregiver is to give feedback to the home care team so they can coach. Fingers crossed, it's been 9 months and things have been much smoother than before.

  • You guys shine above all the others for the coordination with me and providing such wonderful, competent caregivers to clients. I am so grateful to be working with you all.
