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.

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.
