“Overnight we were forced into the dreaded situation of having to seek at home care for both our elderly parents.  At Home Caregivers’ ratings and testimonials were tops and we reached out.  From the first “Hello” our needs were compassionately listened to and a plan of action was immediately put into place.  We had day-time care the day mom came home from the hospital.  A few months later we were forced into yet another emergency of needing 24/7 care for both parents and, again, the manager, Karen worked with us tirelessly, compassionately, patiently and managed 24/7 care the day of our emergency.  At Home Caregivers helped us through an extremely emotional and difficult time in our lives.  We cannot say enough good things about Karen, the caregivers she employs and the company she manages.”

“When I needed help the most, At Home Caregivers was right there for me.  I cannot thank each and every one of you enough for your assistance in helping me recover from my broken ankle.  I would rather be at home with an illness or injury than anywhere else and you made it possible! ” Thanks

Joann R., Sonoma, CA.

“I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful service during our time in need.  Having At Home Caregivers, and in particular, having Zenny there to help take care of Letty’s needs was an enormous help and was instrumental during her last days.  You and your staff clearly show a genuine compassion for your clients – both patients and family.”

Dave N., Cotati, CA

“Thank you so much for helping to coordinate care from the hospital to home for my husband, Jack. We were so overwhelmed with what we needed to do! Your caregiver Bruce was a gift! He was so compassionate and caring for not only for my husband during his final days, but also to my son and to me. He’s now family to us.”

Peggy L., Novato, CA

“Thank you so much for the care you have provided for my mother.  I remember meeting Peter at Marin General Hospital the day my mother was to be released to Greenbrae Care Center and what comfort he provided me, not only in addressing my immediate needs of having a caregiver present at Greenbrae but for his kindness, compassion and advice moving forward with our lives.  I was prepared to have my mother go to a home once her rehabilitation was finished – I didn’t feel I had another choice.  Peter showed me that there were options and that you were there to help.  We have had my Mom at home for over a year now with the help of At Home Caregivers.  Thank you so much…you and your staff have given me a level of comfort in caring for my mother that I didn’t know I could have at this point in our lives.”

Beverly Y., Mill Valley, CA

“Thank you for your excellent services during the last month of Robbie’s life.  Special thanks to Neery who stayed and worked very hard in difficult circumstances.  Also, thanks to Peter for arranging help during this time.”

“Marilou was wonderful with my son. She followed his schedule, took him to play at the park and was very kind. When she returned the 2nd day, he smiled when he saw her. I did not worry about him at all while she was taking care of him. I hope we are able to request Marilou again. She’s very professional and she cares about her work.”

Tara M., San Francisco, CA

“After Rich and I left and on the way home we discussed how happy we were with your staff, especially Michael.  He makes such a wonderful effort to keep Marcia interested and stimulated.  He brings Italian music because she enjoys singing along with it and brings a large selection of videos for them to watch, immediately trying a new one if Marcia isn’t interested.  Rich and I think that Michael truly exceeds any expectations that anyone could have for someone who provides in home health care and we think he is truly a wonderful representative of your company.  Michael is a kind, caring and concerned person who is making Marcia’s life very enjoyable.”

Listen to what a Hospice Social Worker has to say about At Home Caregivers, February, 2013



“I am calling to thank all of you all of you for the wonderful work you have done for Judy. I just called Sherry again he said Elmer is our angel and that he knows exactly what do to. He stays reserved and stays in the background and says what he needs to. They love him and are getting very attached to him. Thank you for saving this family. I just am always amazed at what a good situation you can put together and how well you can take care of it. Thank you so much good bye”

Hospice Social Worker

“This letter is a sincere token of my gratitude for the quality of care Elmer provided my wife in the final days of her life. His experience with people who have fragile bones gave us peace of mind and gave my wife reassurance that she was in good, capable hands. Because of his competency, I was able to sleep better at night. Regrettably, your company wasn’t the first we employed but fortunately it was our last. Hiring your company was the last thing that I did for my wife while she was alive. I’m glad I got it right.”

Gerald L., Novato, CA

“Many, many thanks for sending such a gem of a caregiver as John.  My husband would light up every morning when John arrived. His ability to care was wonderful, thorough and gentle. He was deft at maneuvering him and encouraging him to get out in the sun, to walk and to exercise. He really became part of our family!”

Erdie F., Mill Valley, CA

“Melody, I am so pleased with At Home Caregivers.  It has really helped with the transition of getting a caregiver to help with my parents.  Thank you for all your information.  The Alzheimer’s Association was a tremendous help as well as Amanda in your Scheduling Dept.”

Diane A., Novato, CA

“For the last week I have been doing research into companion care for mom.  I have talked to many agencies re bonding, insurance, extensive background checks, how they answered my questions, etc.  The one that had everything was At Home Caregivers, right here in Novato and owned by Peter Rubens.”

Claire P., Novato, CA

“I’m drafting this long overdue letter to express my sincerest appreciation for the professional care you and your caregivers, Kacey, Jume and Athanasia, provided to Larry during his illness.  This was a difficult time for all, but your team was wonderful.  The home cooked meals were very good, concerns were quickly addressed and the coordination with hospice services was very smooth.  I strongly recommend your services.  Thanks for working with our family through this difficult time.”

Brad L., Greenbrae, CA

“There are not enough adjectives of praise in the English language to describe the attributes of this organization.  Peter was able to take an impossible situation and make it not only possible to deal with, but manageable and comfortable as well.  They instilled confidence in my mother and myself that he and At Home Caregivers were up to the job of caring for a discerning client.  I must say we were never let down.  For the last 7 months of my mother’s life Peter and At Home Caregivers were there for us.  Peter and his people were there to get us through a very difficult time, and they did so with caring, dignity and respect.  At every step of the way they went above and beyond the call of duty without a moment’s hesitation…Whether it was shopping for food, getting carpets cleaned or arranging for a plumber,   At Home Caregivers was there for us…The At Home Caregivers’ staff was skilled, motivated and pleasant…Without question I recommend At Home Caregivers to provide from the most basic assisted living care to handling the most difficult and demanding Hospice support situation…”
