Welcome to Premier Caregiver Services – a place where compassion meets expertise in providing care for those who matter the most.
I’m John O’Callaghan, and I own and operate Premier Caregiver Services in Louisville, Kentucky. Join me as we delve into Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving, a world I’ve come to understand through personal experiences.
While I didn’t know it at the time, growing up with my great grandmother who lived with our family until the age of 101, gave me a perspective and later appreciation for quality of life as we get older. Additionally, I witnessed my father transform into my mother’s caregiver as her Alzheimer’s progressed. Unexpectedly, my dad, in “better health”, passed before my mother.
I am one of 7 children (6 sisters and myself) and we scrambled to take care of our mother. Each of us brought our own “expertise” to the equation. At the time, I was the new owner of Premier Caregiver Services. This experience laid the groundwork and vision for the type of company I wanted and the services our caregivers provide.
Unlike a lot of other home care agencies that are national franchises, we are privately owned which allows us to specialize in dementia care, hire the most qualified, trustworthy caregivers in the market, pay them more, provide ongoing training and support, and set them up for career success.
While there are a variety of care agencies from which to choose, I’d like to share with you my philosophy and vision for my company to help you learn more about where we are coming from as you evaluate your options.
- The caregiving profession is one of America’s most important yet undervalued, underpaid, and underappreciated jobs.
- The basis of our training follows The Alzheimer’s Association’s Dementia Care Practice Recommendations for Professionals Working in a Home Setting.
- We follow the golden rule and treat you the way we would want to be treated, by going over and beyond with top-notch customer service, excellent communication, clear expectations, transparency, and real depth of experience and knowledge.
