Honors and Certifications

Families often seek in-home care when an urgent situation or crisis has occurred, with little time to investigate proper resources for care. First-time home care clients may also not know all the questions to ask in order to make a quality, secure provider choice, nor may they be aware of their rights, responsibilities and potential liabilities.

Hired Hands is proud to be recognized as an exemplary home care agency in California. Customer Service and satisfaction are the cornerstones of our operations, and we see to it that all our clients receive the best possible care.  We are extremely proud of the reputation we have earned in our Twenty-Five plus years of service and support to seniors.
