“There for me when I need them” “I was dealing with diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis in both knees — pain all over the body. I felt sick and helpless. Now I have an aide, and it’s working out; the help is good. Preferred is there for me when I need them.”
“My life is happier and healthier now” “I’m a diabetic, and I had terrible knee pain. I wasn’t eating healthy and I felt very alone: I needed help preparing meals, doing laundry, and remembering to take my medications. I needed someone to run errands with and accompany me to all my appointments. Preferred helped me hire my own daughter, who can care for me and know that I’m well taken care of. She knows my history and everything that’s going on in my life, so it’s easy. Life is much better now — happier and healthier.”

Preferred found me the perfect aide who is actually reliable: she is very protective, walking with me and going to my appointments. I feel that I am getting the attention I need to keep me safe.”
