ACE Personnel is a family owned and operated service founded in 1977 by Diane Anderson (“Mrs.A) . It began as a home based business and has since been devoted to helping the local community with childcare and home care solutions. Mrs. A took great pride in the fact that she was able to help others through elderly care and nanny placements. She took time to get to know her each of her clients and as a result developed lasting relationships with many of them.
As for the caregivers and nannies she employed, Mrs. A was incredibly nurturing towards them because so many were far away from their families and homes.
It is through Mrs. Anderson’s legacy that ACE Personnel has upheld its commitment to unparalleled service. We are dedicated to providing exceptional care to our clients; care that is personalized and unique to each family’s needs.
Diane Anderson is the founder of ACE Personnel, established in 1977 as one of Vancouver’s original Caregiver & Nanny Agencies.
Becca is the daughter of the founder of ACE. Being raised in a family home filled with caregivers and nannies coming and going, Becca came to know the importance of caregivers and the impact they have on one’s wellbeing and quality of life. Her mother’s standards of ACE Personnel were impressed upon Becca early, as Diane would always say: “Seniors deserve to be treated with grace and dignity in their homes. Working parents and busy adults should be able to come home to happy children, a clean home, and dinner on the table so they can have quality time with their loved ones.” Having worked for ACE over the years as a young adult and having a twenty plus year background in real estate, Becca understands the importance of finding each family their perfect fit. Her skills of matching clients to their unique sets of needs and circumstances easily transferred over when she took over as the owner of ACE Personnel. A Vancouverite through and through, Becca always has her finger on the pulse. Becca loves her community: its happenings and the surrounding beauty. She esteems in her long-term, loyal friendships and family values. Becca currently resides on the west side with her beautiful family.

Hilda or “Hildy” as fondly called by her clients has a Bachelor’s degree in Education as well as a Caregiver Certificate. Prior to joining Ace Personnel, Hilda was a Nurse’s Aide in Singapore for several years. Upon arriving in Canada, Mrs. Anderson recognized Hilda’s abilities and compassionate nature and hired Hilda as her own personal caregiver. Hilda’s charm and charisma is what appeals most to people and has helped her to create long-lasting relationships with her clients and caregivers. During her time off, Hildy is truly a social butterfly as she loves socializing at various community gatherings. Hilda also enjoys being in the great outdoors, walking her beloved dog, Sunnybuns, caring for her beautiful rose garden and camping rain or shine.
