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.

​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.
