See What Our Clients Are Saying

"I cannot really find the words to say how wonderful they were."

"My wife Carol had a hard two-year struggle with incurable cancer, declining steadily until life was hardly more than a pin-hole. The last year I arranged for a caretaker for weekdays, and had help from my daughters, but in the final month they needed help as well and I was no longer able to handle weekends and nights. We contacted Home Care Assistance, who provided round-the-clock attendants. I cannot really find the words to say how wonderful they were: highly competent, comforting and caring, endlessly patient and reassuring. They became family friends. Carol passed away — thankfully, in peace — clutching in her hand a little soft animal that one of the attendants had given her. It was symbolic of the relationship that had developed. I cannot praise and thank them enough."
- Noam

"Dependable, calm, caring and trustworthy."

"My sincere thanks to the staff at Home Care Assistance for coming to me in my 11th hour. Their caregiver helped me shower daily, make my bed, prepare meals and do some food shopping, light cleaning and laundry. She was a gem, always on time, and her manner and demeanor exhibited her many years of experience as an expert caregiver. She was dependable, calm, caring and trustworthy. I salute Home Care Assistance for their flexibility in accommodating me at the “last minute,” as well as their reasonable cost for the excellent care received."
- Patricia

"Wonderful."

"As a professional gerontologist and elder care consultant, I have used a number of home care agencies over the years, often with great frustration and disappointment. Working with Home Care Assistance is wonderful - cases run more smoothly, clients are well-matched with capable, caring caregivers and our family is less stressed. They make the process easier, and we appreciate the high standards of care they uphold. I highly recommend Home Care Assistance."
- Michele

"Supports independence without sacrificing safety."

"Our family has worked hard to honor our mother's wish to remain in her home as long as possible. Though my mom has dementia, she is still independent in many respects and enjoys getting out every day for walks and other activities. She still needs help for meals and attention for safety. Through Home Care Assistance we have an amazing, caring and bright caregiver providing mom the 24 hour care she deserves. Home Care Assistance is professional, attentive, optimistic and thoughtful in making sure my mom receives the care she requires with the person best suited to be her helper. It's a very stressful time when we have to deal with a loved one who is declining and they help to support independence without sacrificing safety."
- Darlene

"Listens deeply and makes the right match."

"Finding the right people to care for the seniors in my family is so important to me. Home Care Assistance helped me with my mother, who was quite elderly and suffered from dementia.  They were compassionate, thoughtful and very resourceful as we navigated the challenges of my mother's decline. Now they are helping me find the right level of support for my aunt, who is 91 and still living independently. They listen deeply and make the right match for their clients. Home Care Assistance treats seniors with great respect, which I admire and appreciate. I highly recommend them for taking care of the seniors in your life"
- Athena

"Would recommend them in a heartbeat."

"Home Care Assistance is the best. I am personally indebted to the caregiver they sent me. She was professional, punctual, empathic, and willing to pitch in with mundane stuff like unloading the dishwasher.  I could not have been happier with Home Care Assistance, and would recommend them in a heartbeat."
- Malcolm

"A lifesaver."

"The people at Home Care Assistance were by far one of the most professional, hard-working groups I have ever worked with. When I was faced with a last-second need for a friend, the Home Care Assistance team immediately responded to my call. Within just a couple of hours, they had secured the unique details of what we needed, sent out a care manager to ensure everything was set up properly for my friend, and had the caregiver ready and waiting when he came home from the hospital. The real test came within 24 hours when they noticed he was having extraordinary distress and called the ambulance. Their prompt, caring attention not only resolved a bad problem for us, but literally was a lifesaver."
- Stuart

"Had our best interests in mind."

"You never want to find yourself in the awful position of trying to find assistance for your elderly parents who cannot live on their own anymore. Sadly, I found myself in this position when my mom was diagnosed with early onset dementia. I was referred to Home Care Assistance by a social worker to explore potential care options. I was told their team was "the best" and they really were. They were very knowledgeable around caring for those with dementia and discussed all our possible care options, not just using their agency, which was very refreshing as I felt like they had our best interests in mind."
- Tempe
