If you or your parent has Alzheimer’s disease, you’re not alone. After all, every 70 seconds someone is diagnosed with it. Yet it can feel so isolating, so overwhelming.
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.
Preferred Care at Home provides a variety of specialty services. These services are built around the unique needs of the individual. Included are packages for New Mothers and Surgery Recovery.
Our medically trained and licensed caregivers are available to assist with your nursing needs. These services can be as simple as wound care to ventilator care.
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.

I often talk about the importance of home, yet I still think it is a subject that is not talked about enough. For seniors, it's not just about a house. Their home contains years of memories that are impossible to replace. As seniors age, they may start by adding a few hours of companion or homemaker care. But, when[...]Read the blog

Since 1984, the husband-and-wife founders of Preferred Care at Home have been helping seniors stay in their homes, happily and safely. Now a nationally franchised but still family-run business, Preferred Care at Home offers high-quality in-home care at affordable rates.
“Quality services at affordable prices” is and will always be at the center of every Preferred Care at Home location. It’s no coincidence that Preferred Care at Home has expanded over four times faster than the average franchise company and that the Preferred family now stretches as far northwest as Alaska, northeast as New York and south Florida.
At Preferred Care at Home, we’re passionate about not only helping elderly people but also advocating for them. We recognize the wealth of knowledge and experience they possess. 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.
