Having a regular companion for my mother while she was in hospital and continuing when she moved to her current residence has been a wonderful experience, thanks to Senior Homecare by Angels!
Her companion comes 5 days a week now, for a few hours each day, and is an absolute treasure! It gives me great comfort knowing that there is someone there every day spending time with my mom and engaging her in activities that she might not otherwise be able to participate in. Thank you Gerry and my Angel Jacine!
Cannot thank Gerry enough for finding the perfect person to take care of our mom. Calls, concerns and questions always addressed immediately. Excellent service!
“Senior Homecare by Angels is a stellar Five Star organization. It is an organized and efficient company, operated by Owner/Manager Gerry Gatto, who is professional, accommodating and comfortable to work with.
We contacted Senior Homecare by Angels to provide additional care above that provided by the Seniors Facility our mother resides in.
Prior to our first meeting, through a few questions via telephone, Gerry Gatto assessed my mother’s needs and basics of her personality and paired her with a very suitable trained support person. The Caregiver is professional, very attentive, makes sure everything is done right and is a good liaison with facility staff. Our mother loves her caregiver and has had a good experience with cover off staff as well. The Caregivers are very well trained.
Unlike other services we have utilized, this organization is more flexible with how hours of care can be delivered. They are also the only organization we have found that provides a web portal Weekly Care Report, which outlines the daily care provided and provides a forum through which family members can ask questions or make requests. In addition, Gerry Gatto, the owner/Manager is very hands on and can be reached at any time. Billing is clear and prompt and clients have the option to pay via e-transfer which is an added convenience for us.
“We highly recommend Senior Homecare by Angels.”
Christmas Camp Experience
It is obvious that Dorothy was a perfect match for Heather. This is the first time in four years that Heather completed her Christmas holiday event with no serious issues. This is because of Dorothy’s professionalism in caring for someone she hardly knew.
I will be contacting you any time that Heather requires a supervised outing and will recommend your agency to anyone with similar requirements.
Discovering Senior Care by Angels/Gerry Gatto was a life changing event for my Dad and me.
With the various health issues that Dad was experiencing, he needed someone to help him and to provide him companionship on a daily basis. I called Gerry at 7 am one morning as I was a bit desperate expecting voice mail but Gerry picked up. We met the next day and the day after he set us up with a wonderful caregiver with whom my father has become very attached to.
We have had a number of replacements when Dad’s primary caregiver has been on vacation.
All the caregivers are professional, kind, compassionate, appropriate nursing training/backgrounds and totally reliable. When my Dad had to go to emergency, the caregiver went to the hospital as well and Gerry was constantly in touch to provide updates until I was able to make it to the hospital. I highly, highly recommend this company!!
We were faced with a crisis situation and needed immediate care. Gerry asked pertinent questions and was very honest and forthcoming as to the best way to approach the situation. He listened to our concerns and was able to alleviate any concerns we had. In a very short time frame Gerry had the help we needed, when we needed and the ladies were fantastic. Gerry took the time to personally visit and introduce himself to the rest of the family. We highly recommend Gerry and his team and cannot thank them enough for their swift action and great care.
I really appreciate all Senior Homecare by Angels did for my parents-in-law, their help was always timely, friendly and efficient. Gerry always kept us all up to date with what was happening and I would whole-heartedly use their services again as well as recommend them to anyone who needs help in caring for their loved ones! Thanks for everything, Angels!
I know Gerry through my work in the healthcare field as I am a registered Audiologist in Calgary. He has taken the time to explain his homecare processes and I can certainly recommend him as thorough, caring and detail oriented. He has taken the time to learn about hearing loss and aging in order that his staff can provide the appropriate resources to their clients. I would use his services if I ever required non medical homecare for my own family.

I recently hired Senior Homecare by Angels to look after my mother while she was in the hospital. She has dementia and the Angels kept her active and interested in her surroundings, they made sure all her needs were well looked after. Since I knew that she was being well care for I could concentrate on finding my mother a home. They always kept me up to date on her care, her physical state and her mental state. I would not hesitate to recommend this service to anyone and I have already recommended them to several people I know that have elderly parents that they look after
I recently used the services of Senior Homecare By Angels for my husband who is in a Seniors’ Community Centre on a dementia unit.
I visit my husband and provide “extra” care for him. I needed respite, and felt that he couldn’t go without those visits while I was away.
From the first conversations with Gerry Gatto to the actual setting up of the Angel visits, I found this company to be very accommodating, professional, caring and easy to deal with. I felt very reassured that my husband would benefit from the visits and that my wishes and requests would be fulfilled. They were.
I was so happy to get the written feedback from both Gerry and the Angel. Everything went very well, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use this company’s services again in the future.
We have dealt with Senior Homecare by Angels for about one year and have found them to be caring and thorough. Gerry Gatto, manager, has been very helpful and pleasant to deal with and has provided us with caregivers with appropriate skills for our needs.

My parents have really enjoyed our experience with Senior Homecare by Angels. Late last year, my dad’s mobility deteriorated to the point where he couldn’t go on outings from home without help. Gerry came over and discussed options with us to allow my parents the opportunity to go shopping or to appointments with a qualified caregiver that was equipped to meet my dad’s needs. Since then, my parents have moved to a seniors care facility, but we still call on Gerry and his team for outings as they need them. We find that all Gerry’s staff are patient, kind, qualified and ready to help with any needs that arise, all at a reasonable price too. Thanks Gerry, we couldn’t do it without you!

In early October, 2017 I found myself in a difficult position requiring some help from a home
care organization. Prior to then I had never needed or required this kind of service, but a
compounding series of events involving recovery from a serious basement flood, home repairs
and my wife becoming very ill prompted me to seek some kind of home care support.
I simply used a telephone book, sought out home care listings and after reviewing a short list of
services I selected the subject organization whose office was located not far away from my
home. 1 knew nothing about Senior Homecare by Angels at that point in time.
As it turned out it was a great move on my part. They responded promptly to my phone call and
devised a care plan for my ailing wife following an interview. The plan was well thought out and
designed specifically for my situation to take care of all her needs such as shower assistance,
medication reminders, light housekeeping, laundry, errands, etc.
Within a couple of days a female care person arrived. I was highly impressed by everything she
did to help. In particular how she responded without much direction to solving problems
promptly without coaching.
I could not have been more pleased with the home care I received including the overseeing by
management as the operation continued. Everything was managed professionally including a
prompt rebate of the remaining deposit when my wife unexpectedly took a turn for the worse
and had to enter a hospital when it became necessary to receive morphine for the extreme
pain she developed.
I would recommend this organization without any reservations to anyone interested in receiving
professional, discreet, caring and relatively inexpensive and reliable home care assistance.

The caregiver from Senior Homecare by Angels for my father is excellent. Nicole is prompt, compassionate, patient and carries out her requested tasks very efficiently. In my Dad’s words: “Nicole is fantastic” and he looks forward to having her come to the house to help him out. For me, I have peace of mind knowing that my Dad is receiving such great care.
Working with Gerry has been such a positive experience. He is very responsive and willing to adjust the caregiver’s start and stop times to accommodate my father’s schedule. He also checks in frequently to make sure all is well. This also give me peace of mind!!
I don’t know what we would do without the help from Senior Homecare by Angels.
Great company to work with; very well organized. Caring for my elderly mother with her many health issues (including contacted bugs picked up in hospital) has presented some very difficult challenges. Caring support and companionship for my Mom by SHCA caregivers has provided me with a much needed reprieve.

Working with Senior Homecare by Angels has been a positive experience, and they are a community conscious company that values its employees and their individual contributions. We would like to thank SHBA for participating in the career focus work experience program with Columbia College.
