Why Choose us?
A Home Care Agency You Can Trust
PRIME CARE is an elite personalized home care agency. We were the first home care agency in New York City to be licensed by the New York State Department of Health, and we have been serving the 5 boroughs of NYC and Westchester County since 1983.
Prime Care has long standing relationships with hospitals, social workers, care managers, and nursing homes in the New York Metropolitan Area, and we have developed a reputation in the community for excellence in home health care.
Experienced and Supportive Administrative Staff
Prime Care is owner run and managed with the help of an administrative staff that is small and knows all the Prime Care employees personally. The staff, including the owner and the Director of Nursing, who is a nurse practitioner, work together to know and understand the individual needs of all of our clients.
We work collaboratively with patients, their representatives and family members, their doctors, and hospitals or nursing homes, when a discharge is taking place, to make sure every need is met. Prime Care does not have an answering service or voicemail. When you call, a Prime Care employee answers the phone, even at nights, on weekends and during holidays.

We can provide comprehensive home care service on a full or part time basis. Our staff members are committed to meeting your particular needs.
