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.

I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT
[[ watch the slideshow for some amazing mileage comparisons ]]
I was completely amazed when I stopped and added it up and I was totally floored when I began to make sense of that distance. I realize others have done far more, but for PrimeCare to cruise past 1.5 million miles of service to those in our community - WOW !!!!!
I am exceptionally proud of my Staff and Drivers and we look forward to many more miles of service and smiles.
... FOR COMPARISON SAKE ...
driving "only" 500,000 miles is equivalent to...
From the Earth
to the Moon
The Moon is at an average distance of 238,855 miles away from Earth. That is about the width of 30 Earths
