Get expert guidance from a visiting nurse in the comfort of your home

Our visiting nurses help you & your family manage your conditions better – at home

Get clear, compassionate medical support…right in your home


Quality in-home care is no easy feat: between medications, appointments, wound care and dressings all the details have to be in place.

Even if you’re getting care from a highly capable aide or loved one, you still want to have immediate access to a skilled medical professional.

That’s why our nurses are here for you.

Every Preferred patient gets a registered nurse (RN) to carefully monitor their progress and make sure their aide is giving the absolute best care.

Your nurse will:

Assess your medical situation and care

Teach you about your conditions + treatment so you can be an involved decision-maker.

Make sure you're getting the treatment you need.

Give your aide or family member detailed instructions for how to care for you

“I am not alone in caring for my brother” I was trying to care for my brother, and I was overwhelmed. 30 radiation visits, tri-weekly chemo treatments — there were so many clinical appointments. Preferred’s coordinator and nurse called me regularly to show support. I realized that I am not alone in caring for my brother. Life is much better now.

“She knew exactly what to say to make Dad comfortable” “Maryann ̶ our nurse — knew exactly what to say to make my dad comfortable. She assessed him from head to toe and showed his aide how to care for him. She even called the pharmacy when she saw Dad was running low on his medications.”

Salvatore Romano, White Plains, NY

I was recently discharged from the hospital. I was very sick and needed help. Preferred sent me a temporary aide. I was so happy with her personality and service that I requested she be assigned to me permanently – and she was!

Responsible, professional and devoted. “My father has Parkinson’s and he was living alone. He could no longer be in the kitchen because of the shaking – it was dangerous. Preferred sent us an aide, and we’re very happy: he is responsible, professional, and devoted. He really understands my fathers needs.”

Carol Williams, Westchester, NY


"What will my in-home visiting nurse do for me?"

Make a care plan & manage your medications

No two people are the same – and no two care plans should be the same. Your nurse will create a clear plan of care for your aide, ensuring that every part of your day is poised to enhance your health and wellbeing.

If you find your medications confusing and overwhelming, your nurse can make things more manageable. They can:

Pre-pour medications into your pill box, so you don't have to struggle each morning

Educate you about your medications, so you understand what they do and what side effects to look out for

Reconcile your medication orders to the ones you've been taking - making sure there are no omissions, duplications, dosing errors, or drug interactions

Your nurse will always make sure you understand why you are taking each medication on your list.


Coordinate your medical team

There are so many players in your medical care — and everyone’s got to be on the same page. Your nurse will be your proactive communicator and coordinator, making sure that nothing falls through the cracks.


Educate you and your family

When it comes to your health, everyone’s got to be on board. Your nurse will help you and your family understand your condition better – and learn how to manage it with confidence and ease. We encourage you and your family to be active, empowered decision-makers.


Create a safe home environment

Did you know the slips & falls are the #1 cause for injury among mature adults? Your nurse will examine your home to make sure it’s optimized for YOU: no clutter, no dark spots, no fall hazards.


Assess your health regularly

Who will be there to monitor your health in between medical appointments? Your nurse will assess you regularly at home, making sure your doctor’s treatment plan is yielding the results you need.
