David, and his wife, Debbie started Home Care Assistance of Placer County in 2013 after David spent 30+ years in national and regional management positions in the mortgage industry. Early in his career he realized that the one thing he truly controlled was service. David set goals and standards that would ensure that he would outperform the competitors in service and set up standards to measure performance to ensure consistency. In order to provide great service David focused on recruiting excellent staff that were service oriented. He made sure that they were well trained, rewarded and recognized, which in turn resulted in a very high retention of these key contributors. David has used that experience in recruiting wonderful caregivers who have a passion for caring for others and giving them the additional training and recognition to insure that they have the best caregivers in their market.

He graduated from Brigham Young University in Organizational Communications. He volunteers in his church and the Boy Scouts of America. David and Debbie have four children and seven grandchildren and believe that family is more important than anything. In his spare time he enjoys mountain biking, scuba diving, and vacationing anywhere that has a beach.

Debbie has been caring for people all her adult life. Early on she was trained to be a surgical assistant and worked in hospitals assisting in all kinds of surgery. She was fascinated by the medical field and enjoyed helping surgeons improve the lives of so many. However, as her family grew she had the desire to be a full time mother and hung up her scrubs to raise her four children. She has always been very active in volunteering with everything her children were involved in including school, boy scouts, church, and sports. She has been the President of two volunteer organizations for youth and has dedicated countless hours helping to provide them with a solid foundation to build upon. She was also in a leadership position for an organization that focused on the needs of the elderly and made sure that they had friends, activities, and visits which helped to enrich their lives.

She currently is a volunteer at the Family Search Library in Sacramento and assists others with researching their ancestors. She also is co-chair of an annual Nativity Exhibit for our community in which over 500 nativities are displayed and various community choirs and musical groups perform.
Debbie enjoys spending her free time with her family and seven beautiful grandchildren.


Alicia started her journey with the elderly by spending time with her grandmother who taught her life's simplest gift is to show compassion to others. For 20 years she has made it a goal to provide the highest level of care, being an advocate for the elderly, and making a difference in their lives daily. She has worked with seniors that have been affected with a variety of conditions ranging from Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson's, and end-of-life hospice care.

In 2015 Alicia achieved a long-term goal and attained her Residential Care For the Elderly License. She has been a team member of the Home Care Assistance since 2016. Communication and being a team player, along with establishing a professional relationship between the caregivers and clients, is key to ensuring that both are comfortable in our ability to provide the best care possible.

Erin began working in home care right after she graduated from California State University of Sacramento. As a home care Staffing Manager, Erin found great enjoyment in connecting caregivers with clients. She was then quickly promoted to sales and recruiting within the same company. A move to the Bay Area led Erin to continue her journey in recruiting but in the legal field. Building relationships and fostering a positive work environment helped propel Erin to manage two of the offices recruiting needs.
