Harpreet Singh - Co-Owner

Harpreet Singh - Co-Owner

Harpreet spent his prior working years as a corporate professional, holding a variety of roles within the consulting and banking industries, in a career spanning nearly two decades. Starting out in New Delhi, he earned his degree as a a chartered accountant, and worked with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a top multinational consulting firm. Thereafter, he 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 somehow 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 ‘leap of faith’ decision of giving up a fast track career and joining the Home Instead family.

Presently, Harpreet spends most of his working hours 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.


Amen Deep Sandhu - Co-owner

Amen Deep Sandhu - Co-owner

Right from an early age problem solving, especially in a business related setting intrigued Amen. It was this interest that led to her to follow a Bachelors in Business Studies and Economics at a premier university in India. While pursuing her studies Amen first confronted the challenges presented by ageing, as her grandfather had a fall which was followed by deteriorating cognitive and physical health. The event 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 deep desire to make a difference in the lives of others, especially the elderly.

Amen completed her business studies and pursued work in a variety of different business sectors including a premier financial services firm in India, an apparel designer in New York and business solutions firm 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 International. And 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 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.
