“I can get my life back”. I had so many medical issues: congestive heart failure, arthritis, sciatica, herniated disc, asthma, high blood pressure and inability to walk. I felt depressed. I wanted to get out of the nursing home and Preferred was the first company to take me on as a patient. I love my aides, and I’m very happy. I feel like I can get my life back.

“We got a caregiver we’ve ALL come to love” “My mom had a bad fall. It was hard for her to do basic activities (like dressing), and she felt anxious about being alone. The very first person Preferred sent is someone we all — Mom, me, my sister — have grown to respect and love. She is a wonderful caregiver: she arrives on time, communicates well, keeps the apartment clean, gives my mother warm company, is reliable and pleasant, and more. I didn’t expect that.”

“I feel better now”.“My grandmother needed help with everything — from bathing to walking. I felt unsafe; I was worried she’d hurt herself. Today, I feel much better knowing that someone can go into the bathroom with her and assist her and walk with her. Preferred’s aides are considerate, and they do what’s needed to make my grandmother comfortable.”
David Daniels, Staten Island, NY
“Mom is in better spirits” “We needed someone to be with my mom because she has multiple health issues. She’s prone to falling, and she can be forgetful. I felt worried and helpless! I spoke to Preferred’s staff and they seemed caring and knowledgeable; they found an aide with my preferences within days. The setup is great: I have more time to take care of my personal things without worrying about Mom. And Mom is in better spirits, because she isn’t as lonely.”
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!
