About Preferred Care at Home

Senior Home Care Services in Virginia Beach

Preferred Care at Home of Virginia Beach is a boutique senior home care company that offers access to personalized, one-to-one senior care services to clients and their families. My senior home care company refers highly qualified and committed professionals who specialize in Homemaker and Companion Care, Personal Care, and Skilled Care services. We also have an extensive understanding of the needs of those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

My name is Shirley Baptiste-Zwahl, and I would like to be your home care advocate and problem solver.

Our Commitment

Senior home care is my calling and my way of serving the community and its seniors. My husband John and I are active members of our local Senior Resource Center. Together we occasionally do a radio show called “Home Care Corner” to help provide answers to very important questions like “what are my long-term care options?” I am also on the Mayor’s Commission on Aging, as well as the Virginia Beach and Norfolk Task Forces on Aging.

What It Means To Be Preferred

The caregivers we work with are vetted and interviewed. We only refer the senior care professionals who have a passion for service and caregiving. From there we perform extensive background checks and verify their credentials.

My staff and I will then work with you to find the right fit, no matter how long it takes — because we believe that connection between senior care recipient and provider is vitally important.

If you or your loved one is in need of senior home care in Virginia Beach, please give me a call and let me help guide you through your senior care options.

Senior Home Care Testimonials

  • Your representatives were very kind and caring. You helped with more than just taking care of my wife, you took a lot off of me. Thanks.

  • “The services provided by Preferred Care at Home for my mother have been exemplary. All of the caregivers have been attentive, and the franchise owners have shown their high level of interest and made frequent visits to the home.”

  • “I am using Preferred Care because I needed a caregiver for my father who is 100% blind and has dementia. She comes in MWF for 3 hours a day. She is a military wife and therefore my father has this in common with her. He was in USN for 27 years. She is soft spoken and attentive - perfect for my dad.”
