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.

I have been using Just Like Family for my mom for a few years now, I have two amazing live-in Caregivers, so I know my mom is in good hands.

Just Like Family gives me great comfort and confidence by providing the highest level of quality care for my parents so I can have peace of mind that their needs are met.

Mary T. North Vancouver

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

Christine C. Langley

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.
