“The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty
minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.”
- C.S. Lewis

Over the past 20 years, we have hired 890 Health Care Assistants.
Over the past 20 years, we have provided services for almost 2000
senior clients.

I can’t tell you how many interviews we have conducted or the number
of uniforms we have ordered. Nor, can I count how many care-plan
binders we have organized or home-visits we have made, I can only
say, it’s a lot.
What I can tell you is this, over the past 20 years I have experienced
joyfulness and sadness, exhaustion and elation and over-all pride for
our accomplishments. For these reasons I am still here. In this very
spot. Some people call it their office, workplace, their job. I call it
Homecare West is my opus. Created, nurtured and when necessary,
carried by yours truly. And, although I take claim to the creation of
Homecare West, the timeless admiration in which I hold for her is due
to those that have carried her with me.
Homecare West belongs to all of us that throughout this past 20 years
became her family.
FAMILY: the people who support and love, the people you can trust.
The Homecare West family. The people that teach me things every
day and give generously with their heart and gentle hands. Our
greatest assets. Our strength.

“One day, you’re 17 and you’re planning for someday. And then
quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then
someday is yesterday. And this is your life.”
- John Green

I have spent one third of my lifetime sitting behind my grandmother’s
desk. (she brought it from the “old country”) representing Homecare
West. But I have never been alone. My family is always by my side.

Written with much gratitude and many thanks to all of you for the last
20 years.

Homecare West

Who Are We & How Did We Get Here?

Homecare West was founded by Tammy Watson, July 2004. At that time Tammy was a single mom who had recently lost both of her young senior parents. From this experience she expanded her understanding of what it’s like to care for a parent at home. “I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to bring my personal experience into many conversations I have with families needing care for their parents”.

Tammy has worked most of her life with seniors, starting with her first job as a kitchen helper in a small intermediate care centre in the Fraser Valley.

“My favorite resident, Nanny Higgins taught me to fold tea towels quite properly”.  “Nanny Higgins had Alzheimer’s disease, she didn’t remember my name or that she had already taught me how to fold, but she sparkled when she laughed and when she winked at me as she left the kitchen, I felt we shared a special secret; I was 16 years old”.

After many years and 100’s of properly folded tea towels, Homecare West was born.

An Interview With


Sofia was one of our longest standing senior caregivers. After 15 years with us Sofia is enjoying retirement and we wish her all the best! 

Why did you first apply at Homecare West?

I met someone on the bus that worked for HCW and she said it was a good company and I should apply so I did!

Why did you stay working with Homecare West for so long?

The number 1 reason is trust.  It worked both ways, I trusted them and they trusted me.

How many years have you worked with Homecare West?

15 years, since 2006

What is your favorite thing you do with your client?

My first client was very challenging but I guess I passed the test because I continued to work for 15 years and enjoyed them all.

Hi Tammy, Thank you so much for everything.You helped me so much for the past 15 years. Home Care West had a special place in my 💓 and will be there forever. Wherever I go I will always think of you as a special person in my whole life. I've learned a lot from you. I will always cherish our memories together as a team, a best friend , my sister and my mom here in Vancouver.A million of thanks to all of you at HCW. I will surely miss each and everyone of you .It hurts to say goodbye from the company, the staff and the management and to all my co worker that I work with but my life has to go on and don't know what God's plan for me as I go along with this journey as a senior citizen of Vancouver.Hopefully someday when my health and mind permits I will do some volunteer job with the elderly. If I'm ready I will let you know. Stay safe and God Bless you always. Much love,

Hi, my name is Sally. A friend of mine convinced me to apply at "Homecare West". I applied and I've got clients from the company. I've been working for them for 2 years now. I can highly recommend HCW to anyone especially to my friends, I won't stay this long for this company if I'm not happy. From the Head down to the staff- they are all approachable and always there to find solutions to every problem an employee may encounter. I'll give my loyalty to this company as I find myself comfortable working for them. Have a great day to all.


I've worked with 5 agencies in the past including HCW. I chose Homecare West and I have been working with them for 15 years. In my point of view, the best decision I ever did. Great management, wonderful staffs, good hours, there's always a team work with co-workers. The Health Benefits that HCW incorporate over the years is great and very much appreciated. I'm so grateful to be part of the team. Thank you.....
