Professional Recommendations

Home Care Assistance is the trusted referral choice for elder care professionals.

Below is a selection of professional testimonials. To hear more about what families are saying about their experience with Home Care Assistance, read our Client Testimonials.

“Hospital readmissions are not only detrimental to a patient’s mental and physical health and expensive, but they can result in hospital penalization. Readmissions may be the result of inadequate support and supervision following the patient’s discharge orders upon returning home. Having a structured, professional Hospital to Home program like the one offered by Home Care Assistance promises benefits to the patient and the hospital by working in conjunction with the patient’s medical team to ensure discharge orders are followed and intervention occurs before a readmission is necessary.”

Dr. David B. Carr, MD
Clinical Director, Division of Geriatrics and Nutritional Science,
Washington University School of Medicine

“I work frequently with older adults. Many need help with activities of daily living, especially meal preparation, so I am excited to learn about the Balanced Care Method™ for caregivers. The information in the training manual about a healthy diet reflects the latest research, and the fact that it is based on the habits of the long-lived elders of Okinawa is very inspiring.”

Laurie Steinberg, Registered Dietitian at Stanford School of Medicine

“But beyond creating strengths for elders, families that emphasize Balanced Care will come to work together and understand more clearly how to cope with medical problems and illnesses. The secret is in the strength of the foundation of care. The rest then comes into clearer perspective; complex situations and decision-making during this time of life are better understood and engaged. Home Care Assistance is about foundation-building–for elders, families, supportive friends and, ultimately, for your health care team.”

Founder, Slow Medicine Movement in Geriatrics

“With Home Care Assistance, our cases run more smoothly, our clients are well-matched with capable, caring caregivers and our families are less stressed. They make our job easier, and we appreciate the high standards they uphold.”

Michele B., MD
Professional Gerontologist and Eldercare Consultant

“As an elder care advisor for Choice Advisory Services, I worked with a family to identify the very best care setting for their Mom, who suffered a traumatic brain injury. She required 24/7 care and since her children worked during the week, they were unable to care for Mom and she moved into an adult care home. It was great at first but then all she wanted was to return to her home again. Staffing was limited and they could not sit with her all the time. My client was resourceful and determined to go home; she even escaped twice. Her family was frantic for a new solution. We needed to keep Mom safe for three days until we could move her to a memory care community. In a panic, I called Home Care Assistance and within the hour, a care manager was out to meet with my client. They got it staffed and within three hours, my client had around the clock supervision. They were a lifesaver, and so responsive! My client really connected with her caregivers. It made the transition manageable. We are forever grateful!”

“Phenomenal caregivers, who have gone above and beyond numerous times for our residents.”

Allison B.
Community Relations Director, Avamere Berry Park

“As a private patient advocate, I get frequent requests for recommendations for home care providers that are trustworthy and reliable. Home Care Assistance does a great job in selecting their providers and their care managers are phenomenal. I worked a recent case with them and the Care Manager’s responsiveness when coordinating care for the patient’s needs was nothing short of amazing. The caregivers Home Care Assistance assigned on this 24/7 case were knowledgeable, well-trained, compassionate and it was clear that they appreciated the support they have from their organization. Can’t say enough good things about this organization!

“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 Home Care Assistance is by far the most responsive, as well as the most supportive to their caregivers. I never have to worry when my clients are cared for by the Home Care Assistance team.”

“I am the Director of Community Relations at Renaissance Village Assisted Living and Memory Care. Home Care Assistance has gone above and beyond to assist several families we have referred to them, as well as our own residents. Their team committed for more than 6 weeks to conduct a Mind Fitness program for our residents and they loved it! The team member brought healthy snacks and provided not only a fun activity but a very helpful and stimulating experience for them. I have personally been in homes that were using Home Care Assistance caregivers and the families were very happy with their conscientious services. I have the utmost trust and confidence in Home Care Assistance.”

“As a Senior Care Advocate, I assist seniors and their families with finding care solutions that work best for them. I feel confident referring my clients to the Home Care Assistance team because they truly care and are high-touch and hands-on with everything they do.”

Dyan W.

“Home Care Assistance has become the go-to for support for our residents at Maple Leaf Assisted Living & Memory Care. Our contact has been extremely responsive and the staff that has worked with our residents have been caring and professional. For just one example, when one of our new residents was suffering from debilitating anxiety over her transition, one of the Home Care Assistance staff members came to visit her with flowers and sat with her patiently for hours to help her work through her difficulty until she felt calmer and reassured. The resident very quickly began easing into her new environment without the anxiety she had been feeling. They have worked their magic consistently with other residents and families as well. I would highly recommend this amazing service.”

“The MindFit series was very fun for our residents. One resident in particular is a retired professor who greatly enjoyed all the cognitive exercises.”

“As a Care Manager, I am always looking for a home care company who I can trust with the care of my clients. Home Care Assistance has given me the chance to work with nurses that see my clients as unique individuals who each have their own story. They are always on top of things and share new information and observations after a client visit. I am very satisfied with the level of professionalism, ethics and communication. The caregivers are hard workers and always try to do their best for each of my clients. My job is always easier if I look at my client and I see they are happy and satisfied. Home Care Assistant has strengthened the relationship with my clients because of the excellent service they provide.”

“As the administrator of a hospice agency, I had the opportunity to work side by side with Home Care Assistance to take care of a mutual patient. Home Care Assistance truly stood out to us due to their attentiveness and the quality of care they provided. There was constant communication from the management in their office to ensure all of the patient’s needs were met. Their staff made sure to let us know of the patient’s changing condition in real time, which allowed us to adjust our care in a timely manner. We are happy to have found a caregiving agency that is extremely professional, compassionate and attentive to the patient’s needs. I would highly recommend this company to anyone seeking a caregiver for their loved one.”

“I currently have a client with Home Care Assistance who receives 24-hour care. Home Care Assistance has been instrumental in keeping in contact with me on any changes or concerns. They have done an amazing job of working with a reluctant client in getting them to cooperate and improve their overall quality of life. In my experience, Home Care Assistance has been very responsive when I have a client in need. They have provided immediate care when needed and were diligent in selecting the right caregiver to meet both clients’ personal and caregiving needs.”
