John developed an appreciation for all aspects of seniors aging when he was just a young teenager and his great grandmother, from Grayson KY, came to live with his family. Mama Yates lived to be 101 and was an integral part of John’s life.
In 2007, John left Papa John’s Corporate World and started a company called Evalusafe. He worked with Occupational Therapists to assess homes for accessibility, safety, and comfort for the elderly and handicap as well as executing the improvements in those homes. With a growing need for such services, John decided to join Premier Home Care and established and managed the new Home Accessibility and Retail Showrooms divisions.
In 2012, he took over the Caregiver Services division of Premier and in May 2015 John became the Owner and Agency Manager. John now solely focuses on helping his team provide the best caregivers in the market.
John and his wife Heather have two boys and a young daughter. In his spare time, he loves to boat, water ski and mountain bike.
Originally from California, Loretta has lived in Kentucky for about 30 years. After living in the Elizabethtown-area, she moved to Louisville almost two years ago in order to be closer to her three grandchildren (ages 8, 12, and 19.)
Loretta graduated from West Texas State University in Canyon, TX, with a degree in business. She worked in the restaurant industry for about 35 years spending a significant part of her career working with Dairy Queen’s corporate offices. She served as the Vice President of Operations for Dairy Queen for 12 years before retiring about 6 years ago.
Loretta’s familiarity with Premier Caregiver Services actually comes from her personal life. While looking for help caring for an elderly friend who had suffered a stroke, she met with a variety of home care agencies in the Louisville-area. After meeting with Premier Caregiver Services’ President, John O’Callaghan, she decided to hire Premier to provide home care services.
More recently, Loretta also served as a caregiver to her brother for about five years.
In her free time, Loretta enjoys spending time with her family and especially watching her grandchildren participate in a variety of sports. She also loves boating, jet skiing, and traveling with her husband.
