Alana Breen

Operations Manager

Alana brings more than a decade of experience in the healthcare industry to her role with Just Like Family Home Care, with significant time spent in elder care and retirement homes. She possesses a degree in Global Health Promotion and Disease Prevention from York University with a special focus on aging populations and aging in place. Her passion lies in empowering others, building relationships, and making a positive impact in the lives of others.

Alana loves being part of a team (or as she calls it, a “mini-community”) that is based on common values; wearing their hearts on their sleeves and showing up when, and in the ways, that truly matter.

She says:

“Here at Just Like Family, I truly want to make everyone feel like a member of our family. In-home care shouldn’t feel transactional—the relationship between the client and caregiver can have the same warmth you offer to family members. I love that we value this type of connection at Just Like Family.”


I tried several home care companies before but I wasn’t happy with them sending different caregivers all the time…Just Like Family has offered me the stability and consistency I needed for my dad to stay at home safe.

When I realized my mom’s Alzheimer is getting worse and she needs help I didn’t know where to start and what to do…but the people at Just Like Family gave me all the information I needed and since I started with them my mom is very happy and well taken care of.

What I like about Just Like Family’s Caregivers is that they are very caring and dependable so I trust them with my life.

The connection my parents have with their Caregiver is that of a close friend, not an employee that provides a service, so they can’t wait for the days when she visits them.

Paul and Leeanne are great to work with. They are professional, empathetic, kind and totally understood my needs. They have amazing staff that are kind, caring and respectful adhering to Covid protocols. They were there for me when I needed their assistance with my elderly mother. They answered all my questions and truly supported us.... Just like Family. I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.
