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

  • I could not have been happier with the care I received from Home Care Assistance in San Francisco. From start to finish, I was treated with compassion and practical help from the staff to the actual caretakers. Laurette was wonderful in helping us find the type of support we needed and she made herself available with fast and easy communication as we were working to figure out all the details and care we needed. I'm so lucky to have gotten in touch with you early on. This agency was not only a lifesaver but a true network of support when we needed it most.

  • Caring for a loved one with dementia is a labor of love that can also be overwhelming and I am deeply grateful to Home Care Assistance, not only for the loving, caring, reliable Caregivers they provide, but also for the amazing support I get from the entire staff. I am specially grateful to the Director of Client Care and to the Staffing Manager, for always being available and supportive, no matter how challenging the situation may be. Thank you Home Care Assistance, for making my journey less overwhelming and much more a labor of love.

  • After talking on the phone to one of the HCA SF’s employees, I knew that this would be the right move for my parents. I'm happy to report that I was right. The caregivers have helped my parents so much and they live such a better quality of life now. I highly recommend to anyone with aging parents who want more out of life.

  • Home Care Assistance is a great business. My mother recently had a stroke. She needed 24 hour care for several weeks after she was released from the hospital. I called Home Care Assistance after researching and calling a number of different care providers in the Bay Area. I found HCA to be significantly better than many of the other places I contacted. They were more responsive and more helpful from the very beginning. When I first called, I spoke with the owner, Kathy Johnson. She treated me with compassion and took the time to listen to what I needed and to give me advice and encouragement. She set me up in under 48 hours (yes, I waited until the last minute!) with wonderful caregivers who were extremely competent, warm, trustworthy, intelligent and easy to work with. My mother took to all but one of them -- a personality clash, mostly, I think. When I called Kathy to ask if she could substitute a different person, she did so immediately. I was very impressed with the quality of the caregivers -- I've encountered other caregivers in other situations with friends and relatives and I really think the ones Home Care Assistance employs are a cut above the usual.

  • When embarking on the difficult process of finding care for my elderly parents, I was pleased to have found Home Care Assistance. The service is incredible and friendly and my parents couldn't be happier. It was the best decision I have made.

  • From a caregiver's point of view I can proudly say I work for Home Care Assistance. They took me on their team as I was still halfway through my nursing program. Home care assistance typically takes on those who have professional experience either in nursing or certified nursing assistants, so you'll always know you're in good hands. Working with home care I'm able to work flexible hours, give feedback to my managers, and most importantly build amazing relationships with my clients and family whom I work for. I honestly can say I feel like I'm making a difference in those lives I work with. From helping with activities of daily living, to meal preparations, medication reminders and even just having someone there or someone to talk to those are just a few of the things that make up my day with my clients. Never have I worked with a company who truly goes above and beyond for the people the work for. I would not work for a company whose beliefs didn't match my own. I've learned so much working not only for Home Care Assistance but with my clients as well everyday is a new day! I highly recommend those who are looking to align themselves with a company that appreciates their employees. I also recommend looking into this company for your loved one as well!
