"We felt so much better about keeping Mother and Father at home."
"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 the 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."- C.M. Oakland, CA
"It was clear they needed someone to be there regularly to check up on them."
"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, myself 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."- C.H. Fremont, CA
"Professional, prompt, and responsive."
"They were very professional, prompt, and responsive in setting up care in a short period of time. They worked with my in-laws to get them to accept they care that they really needed."- C.B. Alameda, CA
"She was warm and efficient."
"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, and questioned if I was fine or needed anything else. I highly recommend Home Care Assistance for any procedure where the medical provider says the patient cannot/should not drive themselves."- L.L. Oakland, CA

"Capable, caring and attentive."
"We have been very pleased w/ the care provided by Home Care Assistance Oakland. The caregivers were always capable, caring and attentive to the needs of our 91-year-old who was recovering from hip surgery while suffering from confusion and memory problems, which is not always an easy situation. The staffing was excellent; they always accommodated to whatever changes we needed to make in the level of care. We felt a high level of personal attention to our needs."- Maureen M. Mill Valley, CA
