Who We Are

Providing Quality Care to People in the Comfort of Their Homes

California Board and Care
3737 31st Street
San Diego, CA 92104 California Home Care, Inc. has been dedicated to making life at home for our clients not only a possibility, but also a safe, happy, and comfortable alternative. The heart of our business is our team of qualified caregivers. We believe our competency, integrity, and compassion are vital to successful home care. This is why our caregivers are thoroughly screened by interviews, written tests, and reference verifications. Formal background checks are conducted on all caregivers. Those selected to be a part of our team attend orientations, on-going training classes, and are bonded and insured.

A little more information about the individuals who give California Home Care, Inc. purpose and direction:

Margarette Borg, President

President and founder Margarette Borg was in pre-med at Cornell University -- that is until she discovered she was far too squeamish to go into medicine. Margarette says, "Even though my whole family works in health care, for me, it wasn't going to be hands-on care. So I earned a degree in International Finance and another in Accounting." After working in the healthcare industry for 15 years she earned a Masters Degree in Health Care Administration. "Over 90% of a person's healthcare needs are non-medical," says Margarette. "There's a growing need for quality caregivers in San Diego. I believe California Home Care, Inc. fills that need. It's heartwarming to enable people to stay at home where they are happiest. That is where everyone feels most comfortable."

Frank Valdez, Client Relations Director

Frank has been a part of California Home Care since its inception. His position was created in order for CHC to be proactive in monitoring services provided to our clients in their homes. Frank regularly makes appointments to visit clients, and also drops in unannounced. His caring, calm demeanor makes his position a perfect fit . He is usually the first representative to meet the client, and to address any questions or concerns. Frank's Gerontology Degree, as well as his ability to listen carefully, allow him to customize a care plan for each client, including everything from nursing care, medical assessments, insurance coverage, and transportation - to assessing the food and safety supply requirements for the home.

Cynthia Santos, Staffing Director

Because she understands clients' needs so well, and knows exactly what our caregivers provide, Cynthia's position as Staffing Director is critical to the successful operation of CHC. Upon receiving a new client assessment, Cynthia reviews our team of CNAs, HHAs, Companions, and Homemakers for their specialized skill levels, availabilities and personality traits. The magic happens when she places the perfect caregiver in the home. "I know our caregivers very well, and I get a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction in matching the right client to each caregiver," she says. " Cynthia has worked in skilled nursing facilities and private homes. She knows our caregivers' duties as well as her own! Cynthia's extensive background makes her the perfect "Caregiver of Caregivers" at CHC.

Fidelia Salazar, Intake Coordinator

Fidelia has been with CHC since 1995, and is a native San Diegan. As Intake Coordinator, she is the first contact for clients and family members who are inquiring about in-home care services. Fidelia thoroughly explains CHC’s services and enjoys the diversity of our clients’ needs. “I like meeting clients and families, and addressing the various needs, health conditions and lifestyles that make everyone unique,” says Fidelia. “It’s rewarding working closely with families to help their loved ones remain comfortable in the privacy of their own homes.” Fidelia, who is also a Medical Assistant, appreciates the opportunity to work for such a caring agency. “We’re like a close family at CHC,” she says. “Everyone gets along very well, and truly cares about each client.”

California Home Care, Inc. is San Diego owned and operated, and serves all of San Diego County. California Home Care, Inc. also owns and operates a nine-bed live-in facility in the San Diego's North Park community.
