Client Testimonials

“The girls at Home Care are fantastic! They have cared for my aged mother so well. Caring for her needs in such understanding and gentle ways. All her needs are well taken care of and they let me know of anything I may need to follow up on. They are easy to get hold of and will deal with any concerns immediately. Very professional but always so kind and warm. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Home Care Assistance to anyone. Five stars in my book" - Jay

“We received excellent care for our Mum by Home Care Assistance Victoria. 24 hours a day, the caregivers were attentive, professional, unfazed by anything, and clearly liked Mum. I was impressed by how they respectfully were immediately with her whenever she needed anything. They were good cooks too." - Joyce

“I only met Gail a month or so ago but she has had an immense impact on the quality of my life. When I applied for a companion, I did it with some trepidation and consider myself so lucky to have managed to get Gail. Gail is incredible, she gets me out and helps me get done those things I was rapidly losing the ability to do for myself any longer. She enables me to get my own groceries again–with considerable help from her, to get other things–often when she is off shift to ensure I do not go without. Is constantly by my side, making sure i do not fall, and a charming companion to boot. I feel so lucky that I got Gail.” — Andy M., Victoria, BC

“I want to express my thanks and gratitude to Lutgarda and her caring staff at Home Care Assistance for the assistance they provide to support me and my mother in our home care journey. They support me as part of a cohesive team to ensure my mum’s needs are met and that she gets the best care tailored to her specific requirements. I would have no hesitation recommending Home Care Assistance to care for a family’s loved ones." - L Sihota 

“It is so marvellous to have someone as nice as Flor. She is cheerful and helpful and she transports me to all my appointments. I am tremendously pleased and I can highly recommend the caregiver Flor.” — Mrs. John

“I heartily recommend Home Care Assistance for giving me excellent, friendly caregivers when I had a compression fracture recently. I would recommend anyone looking for good home care to contact Home Care Assistance as I have been very pleased with their service.” — Jeanne C.
