  • I would like to let you know what a wonderful representative for your company Jackie from your La Jolla office is for your company. When I called, I had no idea what to ask about and was very stressed. Fortunately for me, Jackie was the one who took my call. She made me feel very comfortable that Home Care Associates could take care of my husband's needs and also answered all the questions I didn't even know to ask about.

    She kept in touch with me until we had a date certain for him to go home and found a very good caregiver, Elizabeth, who made him feel comfortable and trusting and took care of all his needs. At one point, we had a minor scheduling problem. Jackie took my call at 6:00 pm on Friday and resolved the problem within a few minutes. She then called me back and let me know that everything was okay. She is very dedicated.

  • When I went in to Home Care Assistance in La Jolla, they were having a cooking class to demonstrate how to prepare healthy food for seniors. How cool is that? I also heard they do yoga and other types of classes. My grandfather used a home care agency in Canada and although the caregivers were friendly, they never had services like this. The director, Jennifer Muskat, was extremely friendly and helpful and I have never had any issues with anyone from the office calling me back when I needed information. I would for sure recommend using Home Care if anyone in your family needs this kind of assistance/care.

  • I liked the fact that if a caregiver wasn't a perfect fit for Dad, I could request a new caregiver instead. That only happened once. It wasn't that the caregiver was inadequate, in fact she was very skilled. She just didn't "click" with Dad. But all it took was one quick phone call to the scheduler and an immediate and perfect solution was found. Whenever I called their office, they listened. It was obvious that they really cared...My family and I highly recommend Home Care Assistance, and its dedicated staff and employees, to anyone looking for outstanding care for their loved one.

  • I hired Home Care Assistance to provide weekend care for my dad in Carlsbad back in March of last year. We have a dear family friend we pay privately to care for Dad Monday through Friday. Home Care Assistance has Grace come in Saturday and Sunday and to cover on the days our friend needs time off during the week. Well I just received a call this morning at 5:30am from our friend that she cannot come in to care for my dad because she has the stomach flu that has been going around. She is supposed to arrive at my dad's house at 7am to make sure he takes his first dose of insulin!! I panicked!! I immediately called the agency not really expecting anyone to answer because it's 5:30am and off hours. The operator connected me immediately to Rosanna, the staffing person on call. She was so calm and helpful and assured me she will find me coverage. 40 minutes later she called back and told me they were sending their on call caregiver to my Dad's house and that she already walked her through my dad's case and that one of their Care Managers, Camilla, will be stopping by this morning to check on them. I can't believe how fast they worked at helping me out on a day I don't even have them regularly working for my Dad. Amazing! I was so impressed by their compassion and customer service!

  • This agency offers flexible care schedules for any situation. Early mornings, four hour periods, late nights, overnight... they have someone for the job. Not to mention, their caregivers are trained well. They even put some of them through chef training classes so they know how to make tasty and healthy food. Great company if you are looking for flexible home care for your loved one. Everyone is really friendly in the office.

  • I can't say enough good things about Home Care Assistance. I have worked with "multiple" home health care agencies and this is the first one to get it right! With previous agencies, I dealt with employee theft, staff that was incompetent and poorly trained, appalling billing practices and overall horrendous customer service. Home Care Assistance has their act together. They know how to match the client up with the correct staff and it is very apparent they screen their employees thoroughly. I would highly recommend this home health care agency to anyone who is seeking a professional and competent organization to take care of your loved ones!

  • Was referred to Home Care Assistance when my Mom was coming home from Scripps. I was out of town and had to organize everything remotely. They were extremely helpful and professional. I was very stressed and totally lost but they handled everything from start to finish. Camille, is one of their care managers and went out to the hospital to assess mom the same day. She organized with the nurses and doctors and was able to get Mom home safely with care that day. What I liked the most was their flexibility and quick action. Mom came home with 24 hour care for the first few days then was able to slowly reduce hours to a manageable schedule. Highly recommend!

  • Things with Home Care Assistance are working out very well. The person that we have coming out really extends himself and goes out of his way to really help out. He is very personable and friendly, able to talk sports and history with my husband, etc. Everything about them has been great and I highly recommend them.

  • So far everything has gone very well with the Home Care Assistance service. The caregivers we've worked with have been friendly and professional, and the administrative staff have been easy to work with as well.

  • The people at Home Care really do care. We have a private caregiver for four days a week and were thoroughly disgusted with the company we had before for the other three days, so we did some research and settled on Home Care Assistance. They have been wonderful, caring, and conscientious providing care for my 95-year-old mother at home. Their scheduling folks are excellent. I only hold back one star from my rating because of a few communication issues, but overall, I highly recommend them. I love across the country from my mother and I know she is in very good hands.
  • As a baby boomer, I am part of the generation that's trying to navigate the waters of eldercare. Homecare Assistance has been an invaluable part of my equation for making sure my mom receives the highest level of care and support. From transportation to healthcare appointments, to 24/7 supervision and assistance, their staff is both professional and compassionate. I can't recommend them highly enough.

  • When my father needed help, Home Care Assistance did a great job. The Care Manager went through an initial assessment and asked questions I hadn't even thought of. A care plan was implemented (and tweaked) that worked very well for my Dad and our family. There were clear expectations on how my Dad would be cared for. The caregivers were kind, caring, and smart enough to make my Dad feel like he was still in charge. They go well beyond simple companionship services. I highly recommend Home Care Assistance!
  • We love working with this team! Their follow through is exceptional, their case managers take their jobs very seriously, and they treat each client as their own family member. Our case manager and has been my right hand while my husband and I are assisting with the care of our uncle and aunt in their 80's & 90's. We appreciate the support and kindness shown to us every day. Thanks to a wonderful team!

  • Home Care Assistance provided healthy meals, errand-running, and prescription reminders for my parents. I could not have done it without them. Thank you for keeping my parents happy.
  • During these difficult times, I turned to Home Care Assistance for my elderly mother. I cannot express enough my appreciation to the entire staff for all they did. I want to thank them all for the genuine care and knowledge the caregivers provided during her last days in hospice. I highly recommend Home Care Assistance.
  • I can't say enough about Home Care Assistance. They really understand all of the details regarding the comprehensive care required for a person who is finally in need of of part time or full time care giving. It is extremely difficult to wade through all of the options for elder care and the Care Managers were terrific in providing me with a road map as to how they would start the process. Thank you for being so approachable and making this a seamless transition.

  • Our family would highly recommend Home Care Assistance to anyone looking to have their loved ones stay at home. Their high level of service has provided my Grandmother to stay in her home and build relationships with the caregivers she has. Our care manager works to make sure we receive caregivers that are the right fit for my rather picky Grandma. Before we had caregivers in the home, Grandma was not able to go out in her community and now she is able to walk daily, go do activities and even eat home-cooked meals.

  • I could not recommend Home Care Assistance more. They go above and beyond to take care of your loved one as if they were one of their own. Home Care Assistance was able to come through for our family when a quick discharge snuck up on us after my mother had taken a fall in the home. We were able to keep the care in her home and make sure Mom does not have another fall. It is hard for me to travel to see my mother since I live out of town. The caregivers have been a huge relief, assuring she is safe and keeping me updated on any changes they saw in my mother. Thank you for all you have done for me and my family.

  • Picking the right home care agency is an important thing for a family to do. With Home Care Assistance, I always have peace of mind knowing that the care team there is making sure my mother is taken care of in the right way. They are able to assist her daily with all meals, errands, doctor appointments and more. One of the many reasons we chose them is because of their Cognitive Therapeutic Method that they do with my mom; it allows her mind to stay sharp while interacting and having fun with her caregiver. A very BIG thank you for providing continuous care for my mother and allowing her to stay independent in her own home.

  • I have been through many agencies trying to find a company who is able to send consistent caregivers to work with my dad. After working with Home Care Assistance for over a year now, I can confidently say I will not have to look again. The staff is always there when I need them and able to give me full reports of care when I come down to visit. Before I started using Home Care Assistance I would have to come down to San Diego very frequently to make sure his caregivers were taking care of him properly. Now, I have full trust in his care team. If you want a company who truly cares then this company is the right one for you.

  • Losing a loved one is not easy. But getting the support from the staff of Homecare Assistance made the difference! The caregivers were outstanding, caring and skilled. The Staffing team was available to us 24/7 for any new request and change. The whole care experience was something my family and I will forever be thankful for.

  • Special shout out to Homecare Assistance in La Jolla. They are experts in providing support to my loved one who is on hospice. They provided my family with the emotional support we needed. We greatly appreciate everything you've done for us.

  • I am in the healthcare industry myself so when it comes to finding somebody to care for a loved one, I can be very picky! Homecare Assistance was recommended to me by a friend so I set up care with them for my cousin. He was bedbound, on hospice and definitely needed all the "tender, loving, care" he could get. I definitely called the right company! The caregiver they sent was so patient, did not mind doing all that was required of her and went above and beyond! She will be our friend forever. My cousin passed away but we will always remember how his caregiver made his last days as meaningful as they could be.
    San Diego, CA
  • We have had the best possible care provided by Home Care Assitance, and have really appreciated the management of the staff.

    After my mom died five years ago, it became clear to all of the kids that we needed some help to support my dad. When it became clear we needed 24/7 we interviewed many agencies. We even talked about hiring someone on our own and I am so glad we didn't do that. The management of the providers at Home Care Assistance was the secret sauce to good care for my dad. When my dad's dementia started getting worse, they brought in a specialist to evaluate some ideas for memory work and then worked with the nurses to support him in doing it.

    My dad just passed away, and you can be sure we will be inviting the team at Home Care Assistance to his memorial! We are so thankful for the lasting moments that made our lives and my dads so much richer.
