MIDDLETOWN – Preferred Home Care of New York has expanded by hosting a grand opening of its new office at 21 Center Street in Middletown on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017.

“Orange County residents deserve quality jobs-and quality care-and we’re thrilled to be a part of that,” says Preferred CEO and President Berry Weiss. “The last few years have seen a rapidly increasing demand from the area, and we’re excited to be able to meet it.”

Preferred Home Care currently services almost 6,000 clients, with eight branches across the New York metropolitan area.

“What differentiates our staff is their skill,” Administrator Allen Hymowitz explains. “By training our aides in our own DOH-approved schools, and choosing only people of dedication and integrity, we’ve managed to grow exponentially-and establish new branches like this one.”

“We’re committed to providing not only hundreds of jobs for Orange County residents, but compassionate home care for every local in need,” says Wendy Javier, the new branch’s Director of Operations. “If you are an Orange County resident, you can expect exciting new opportunities.”

Director of Patient Services Sandra Picillo is gratified by the enthusiasm, noting the County has seen a dearth of high-quality home care.

“Our goal is to make every ill or aging person happier-at home,” she says. “We’re offering skilled aides, nurses, or therapists, all while infusing the area with excellent employment opportunities.”
