Senior Care Careers

“Thank you for your help in caring for my mum. After going through a few agencies and not having much luck we came upon the name of Living Assistance Services by chance.
I know that mum was a difficult client. Your staff worked hard to place her with PSWs who had the right temperament to work with her. The PSWs that stood out to us were Janet, who we had for one night while mum was in hospital. Her care and professionalism towards mum was superb. Others that did a fantastic job over the year were Rowena, Maricar, Irish, Rupinder, Prabijhot and Zahra. Rowena was always so sweet. Each of them went out of their way to show compassion to a difficult client and along the way created a routine of care that made mum feel comfortable.
Whenever I called the office, which was often, the staff were pleasant and helpful. Pedro, Fritzie and Saiqa were very easy to work with. Pedro and Fritzie were always available to sort things out.”
