Sequoia Senior Solutions
Our mission is to ensure a better quality of life for our elderly clients and their families by providing dependable and affordable in-home care.
We are family-owned and operated and have been proudly serving North Bay seniors for more than 17 years. Join our family!
Sequoia Senior Solutions, Inc. was founded in March of 2003 by Gabriella Ambrosi and Stanton Lawson. The husband & wife team began offering services to seniors in Petaluma working out of their home for the first few years until the business grew to the point of acquiring office space.
In 2007 Sequoia Senior Solutions acquired its largest competitor, Home Care Options, and overnight the company grew from less than 100 caregivers to over 300. By then, its territory had grown to include all of Sonoma, Marin, and Napa counties, and the acquisition added Lake and Mendocino Counties to its growing service area.
In 2009 the company expanded into Solano County as well. The company remains headquartered in Petaluma with satellite offices located in Lakeport and Santa Rosa.
Our Mission & Values
The mission of Sequoia Senior Solutions is to ensure a better quality of life for our elderly clients and their families by providing dependable and affordable in-home care. We believe that excellence in in-home care starts with caring deeply for our employees and investing in their professional development and training. Our commitment to continuous learning and adapting to the changing environment is what we feel sets us apart and equips us to help the seniors in our community age well in their homes. The results are a well-trained, professional staff and a sterling reputation from nearly two decades of providing peace of mind to families in the North Bay.
At the very heart of our culture is compassion and empathy. From the care we take in hiring our caregivers, to the interactions you’ll have with care managers, we understand that without compassion and empathy, building trust and relationships is next to impossible. And it’s through this trust and relationship building that we strive to help the entire family holistically – truly becoming part of your care team. To achieve that, we commit to being honest and transparent, communicating openly, and acting with integrity in all facets of our business.
This holistic approach also translates to how we help our clients, training our caregivers to address not just physical needs, but emotional and social needs as well. Through our caregiver selection process, we aim to match clients with caregivers who not only have the experience and skills to care for them, but who also have similar traits and interests that will encourage companionship and relationship-building. This results in caregivers who are dedicated to helping their clients live well and live longer in their homes, and who provide much-needed consistency at this vulnerable stage of life when things seem to change rapidly.
