Mom is 83, raised 4 kids by herself, and was totally independent never having to rely on anyone for anything. Then she had a transmetatarsal amputation of her left foot making her incapable of standing or walking until the stitches healed. We needed home care immediately. I googled Home Care in San Jose and Familiar Surroundings popped up. It was as if God Himself stepped in and gave us Familiar Surroundings. We felt totally at home talking with [name removed] arranging the contract for Mom. [Name removed] was truly instrumental in scheduling caregivers on such short notice and we were able to get Mom home that week. Huge heartfelt thanks to [name removed] who stayed with Mom 24 hours a day for the first 4 days helping Mom adjust to home care with dignity and respect. We love [name removed]. Additional Shout Outs to all of the other caregivers especially [name removed]. Mom learned to allow others to care for her and she truly appreciates all that they did for her.

This is the first home care provider ...

This is the first home care provider that we've used, and it's really for my husband's mother. So far, we're very impressed with Familiar Surroundings. They treat my mother-in-law well, they show up on time and are very professional.

Great for in-home care

Found out about A Place for Mom through a friend and my APFM Rep emailed me places in the area that I interviewed. Familiar Surroundings Home Care was flexible with their hours, and would work with the schedule I needed them for. I found that other places had a 3-4 hour minimum that did not work for my needs. I really like the owner, caregiver,and RN I met at Familiar Surroundings and felt good about working with them.
