Smooth-Transition Care, an affordable, evidence-based service, combines four key components to prevent readmission in elderly people.
Preferred Care at Home’s homemaker care. We make your house into that special place again. We do the chores and provide those tender loving touches that make you comfortable. Ultimately, our homemaker care can help you or a loved one remain where you want to be—home.
As we mature, our needs change. The things that were once simple to perform become complicated.We can provide you or your loved one assistance and direction with all the tasks referred to as “activities of daily living.”
Peace of mind. It’s so often an elusive dream for people with elderly parents—and for elderly people themselves. That’s why Preferred Care at Home has always been known best for our 24-hour peace-of-mind service called live-in care.
At Preferred Care at Home, we partner with hospices to care for people as they approach life’s final transition. Our caregivers are specially trained in end-of-life care. Depending on your needs, they may, for example, prepare easy-to-eat foods, read to you, and watch for discomfort and summon health-care providers if needed.
When you choose a home-care service, one consideration stands above all else: the quality of the caregivers who will be at your or your loved one’s side. You want people you can trust without question.
Every Preferred Care at Home caregiver possesses two key characteristics: a compassionate heart and home-care experience. The first and most significant characteristic is the compassionate heart. No training can create this uncompromising, required quality.
To ensure you receive the highest-quality home care possible, we put all caregiver applicants through a rigorous, seven-step screening process after we receive their comprehensive caregiver application. You can learn more about this process in the video and article below.
Caring for people in need can be rewarding work. At Preferred Care at Home, we’re always looking for people with the appropriate experience. But most importantly, we seek home-care aides who are compassionate and reliable.

The other day I went to grab a cup of coffee at a local coffee shop in my town. The shop was packed, the line was long, and not many seats were left. As I stood waiting for my coffee, I was too distracted thinking about my day to notice the older gentleman trying to open the door with his[...]

“Quality services at affordable prices” is and will always be at the center of every Preferred Care at Home location.

We believe that to be a strong community, we can’t ignore their stories and knowledge. And we’re concerned that elderly people have lost value in our culture. We want to be part of changing that.
