Amen Deep Sandhu - Co-owner

Amen Deep Sandhu - Co-owner

Right from an early age Amen enjoyed problem solving and this led to her interest in pursuing a specialization in Business and Economics. While completing her studies Amen first confronted the challenges of ageing, as her grandfather had a fall followed by deteriorating cognitive and physical health. This impacted Amen deeply and she took time-off from college to care for her ailing grandfather. She had cared for her grandfather for nearly a year by the time of his passing, and the experience left Amen with a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of others, especially the elderly.

Amen's work before Home Instead involved roles in a variety of industries including financial services in India, apparel designer in New York and business solutions in Singapore. Through this time, she remained true to her quest of helping others by volunteering with organizations such as the Red Cross and Rotary. In coming to Home Instead, Amen was elated at the opportunity to manage her own business operation which also matched her strong passion for service to the senior community.

At work, Amen’s focus is on running a smooth operation, with an emphasis on quality care for our clients and the effective management of our caregivers. In her free time, Amen likes gardening, hiking, listening to music and spending time with her family.

Harpreet Singh - Co-owner

Harpreet Singh - Co-owner

Harpreet spent his prior working years as a corporate professional, holding roles within the consulting and banking industries, in a career spanning nearly two decades. Starting out he earned a CPA degree, and worked with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a top multinational consulting firm. He then moved to the USA to pursue business management from an Ivy League university and embarked on a banking career over the next decade, with Citibank, a large global financial institution. During this time Harpreet lived and worked in some of the most cosmopolitan cities around the world including New York and Singapore.

Through those years though Harpreet felt the growing pull of a recurring sentiment – that his work needed to be more than just a means to a paycheck and that through his efforts he should benefit the lives of those he connected with. This strong desire to make a difference and contribute to his community was the driving force behind Harpreet’s decision of giving up a successful career and joining the Home Instead family.
Presently, Harpreet spends most of his time interacting with his clients, learning life lessons from them and participating in making their golden years more comfortable. Outside of work, Harpreet enjoys meditation, cooking, writing and reading. He lives in Burnaby, BC, with his wife Amen and two delightful children. ​

Carolina Barrocas - Office Manager

Carolina Barrocas - Office Manager While pursuing her Law degree in Brazil, Carolina had to assume the responsibility of being her grandma's primary caregiver, when she had a stroke and became totally dependent. The overwhelming circumstances brought Carolina face to face with her deep-rooted empathy for others, especially seniors, who couldn't care for themselves. While the passing of her grandma was very difficult for Carolina and her family, in time, she was glad that she was able to comfort her grandma during her final days.

Carolina has worked as a Graduate Program Coordinator in Brazil - a job in which she had the chance to develop her interpersonal skills in the management of people and in meeting the needs of her clients to the highest standards. In Canada, she has trained on Mediation and Arbitration and has also volunteered in some not-for-profit organizations like Amnesty International, South Granville Seniors Centre and Latincouver.

While at work, Carolina likes to focus on empathy and help make a difference in peoples' lives. In her spare time, Carolina likes to read and ski. She is a great cook and loves to learn new recipes from different cultures. Her family is what moves her.”

​Our Caregiving Team

The fundamental trait that Amen and Harpreet look for in their caregivers is the passion for caring. “Would I be happy with this person caring for my parents?” is the key assessment they make, when interacting with someone keen on joining the Home Instead Burnaby & South Vancouver family. While potential caregivers end up being variedly experienced it is the vibe of passion for caring, that eventually determines their selection.

Through diligent efforts Amen and Harpreet have put together an eclectic team of passionate, kind hearted and reliable caregivers. These wonderful individuals from all walks of life, with diverse cultural backgrounds, language capabilities and life experiences, are united in the singular cause of enhancing the lives of ageing adults in their community.
