About PrimeCare Transport
PrimeCare is the #1 private pay provider for assisted ambulatory, wheelchair and stretcher transports in each area we serve. Since early 2015, PrimeCare has been providing the highest level of medical transportation for seniors, patients and disabled persons needing personal one-on-one care. We offer the highest caliber of transportation services.
There are many reasons why seniors (or those with disabilities) can't travel on their own; frail bodies, recent accidents or surgeries, memory issues, low-vision, medication restrictions, previous strokes or seizures, etc. AND there are many reasons why families either can't make it to them (out of town, stuck at work, scheduling conflicts, etc.) or just won't allow their loved ones to be handled by “strangers.”
For these reasons we exist.
We are the private and preferred provider of assisted transportation for seniors and patients who want peace of mind. In just a few minutes our services can be arranged by you, family members, care-providers or facilities (nursing homes, churches, hospitals, clinics, etc.).
Don't be fooled by others who just "market" compassion,
PrimeCare lives it, breathes it, shows it, every day and in every way.
We are in this industry to bring back compassion, care, dignity and respect to those in our care. All of our employees, from Drivers, to Staff, to Owners, are all mission-oriented servants who strive for excellence every day.

In early 2015, Ty formed "For Senior Help, LLC" to start NEMT in Memphis, TN. After a brief stint as a franchisee, PrimeCare was named in 2016. In 4 short years, Ty and his team went from nothing to the largest Private Pay Transportation Provider in Memphis and the Mid-South.

He still does some driving (as needed), but now mostly handles the call volume for our Memphis and Jackson locations, and keeps office neat, clean and in order.
PrimeCare really is a group of compassionate people
Above and beyond outstanding customer service for our riders, families and facilities, our team handles all in-coming calls, trip intake, data entry, route management, trip edits, facility confirmations and rider/facility/appointment/location issues.

No moving parts - We DON’T use lifts. All our vans have a fold-down ramp in the rear of the vehicle. Therefore no mechanical parts to break down and no risk of injury or falling off a lift.
Easy Entry/Exit - Our fold-down ramp allows elderly and those with walkers to slowly and gently enter vehicle and get to seat.
Routine maintenance - as well as typical oil changes and tire replacements, we have State EMS inspections, which include a full mechanical inspection from a third party, for our Invalid Stretcher licenses every year.
Routine inspections - We have a detailed 2-page inspection sheet to review everything inside and outside from supplies to mechanicals to appearance; from that, we create a punch list to correct any issues to keep our vans up and running.
Newer vans - All vehicles in our fleet are monitored and replaced as needed and all fully converted and equipped to handle each service type we offer, ambulatory, wheelchair and invalid stretcher.
Clean, inside and out - Our drivers take great pride in the appearance of the vans and are given supplies necessary to maintain van appearance.
We have one of the newest, safest, and greenest fleets on the road today. Our employees ensure every one of our converted ramp minivans remains within our high standards of cleanliness at all times. We strive to provide customer satisfaction through consistent professionalism, not only from our employees but also in the environment we provide for you along your journey.
Our state of the art converted Toyota Siennas are the widest in the marketplace, a staggering 48", and can accept just about ANY wheelchair. Our vans have been custom developed to specifically meet our high standards.
We have newer passenger vans, offering Five-Star crash ratings, side airbags, and even GPS assistance in the unlikely event of an accident. These vehicles meet or exceed every state requirement and make getting around town simple and effortless. The van can hold 2 wheelchairs and 3 ambulatory passengers in addition to the driver or a full-size stretcher.
