During their golden years, older adults are often faced with a number of various age-related challenges. Some seniors just need a bit of help with the simple tasks of daily life, such as cooking nutritious meals, running errands, transportation to medical appointments and social events, and light housekeeping, while others require a higher level of around-the-clock care while they’re recovering from illnesses, strokes, or injuries or living with serious age-related conditions such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.
At Home Care Assistance of Vancouver, our sole mission is to help elderly people age in place safely and comfortably so they can continue to live at home with as much independence as possible. Our highly trained, experienced professional caregivers are devoted to providing exceptional care with compassion and the dignity aging adults deserve, and we empower our team members to achieve this goal by providing ongoing training, which includes instruction on following the CDC’s best practices for infectious diseases as well as employing Home Care Assistance’s two proprietary methods of care, the Balanced Care Method and the Cognitive Therapeutics Method.

"We used Home Care Services over the past year assisting our 91 year old mother while she was in an assisted living home. All of the caregivers were excellent and caring and made a difference in her day. Communication was excellent and we always felt well informed of her care. My mother’s quality of life was enhanced by the caregivers, and they were all able to accommodate her changing health needs. I would highly recommend Home Care Services."
"We used Home Care Assistance while my 88 year old aunt was ill and unable to care for herself during an illness. I must compliment Leah our coordinator for her excellent communication and organizational skills. From the very beginning she was very clear and helpful setting up my aunt’s care. The caregivers were all excellent and truly wonderful with my aunt. Patient, caring and professional. I would highly recommend HCA and will use them in the future, if the need be."
