The Preferred Home Care Advantage

We are one of New York’s most established home care agencies. Our high volume and scope empower us to tackle even the most complex cases. This means you won’t have to shop around, make endless calls, or wait weeks to get the help you need. Training is not an extra: it can spell the difference between “dream” and “disaster.” That’s why we employ only certified professionals who’ve completed extensive training, often in our very own DOH-accredited schools.

Our caregivers master continually-updated training, as well as ongoing in-services that reflect the latest industry standards. Our caregivers are reliable and compassionate — but they also have to be a good fit. Our coordinators work hard to match the right caregiver and client to blend into your family and lifestyle. Whether you need someone pet-friendly, culturally-aligned, or closer to your age, you’ll get a loving aide who is perfectly suited to meet your needs.

We're Proud of Our Reputation

“I have a new life.” “I couldn’t walk. Couldn’t shower. Couldn’t cook. Couldn’t get in and out of bed. Couldn’t dress myself. I felt very depressed — until I called Preferred and got help. My aide is great: he’s been here 8 months, and I could not get along without him. He cooks, he cleans, he is GREAT. I feel like I have a new life.”

“The future looks promising again.” “My mom can finally get the care she needs, and it makes our living together a little easier every day. The future looks promising again.”
