About Our Staff
David A. Waddell – Owner & Administrator
David is the Co-Owner and Administrator of Home Care Assistance (HCA) of Placer County. Prior to opening HCA David spent 30 years in national and regional management positions in the Mortgage industry in Colorado and Northern California. Early in his career he realized that the one thing he truly controlled was service. David set goals and standards that would ensure that he would outperform the competitors in service and set up standards to measure performance to ensure consistency. In order to provide great service David focused on recruiting excellent staff that were service oriented. He made sure that they were well trained, rewarded and recognized which in turn resulted in a very high retention of these key contributors. David has used that experience in recruiting wonderful caregivers who have a passion for caring for others and giving them the additional training and recognition to insure that they have the best caregivers in their market.

David and his wife and business partner Debbie have 4 children and 5 grandchildren and believe the family is more important than anything.
