  • Hi Susan. I was very happy with your​ service. I won’t go and login to Google plus but I’ll just tell you via this email that your company did a great job and I’d be happy to refer you to friends.

    Justin Archer
  • Thank you for sending Reina to us, I would recommend her to anyone needing nursing care. This lady has a wonderful sense of humor and a nice way of getting tasks done. She managed to deal with my aged uncle in such a kind and wonderful way and always had Cyril’s interests at heart. Cyril has moved to a level three facility in Saskatoon and is doing well but really misses Reina.

    Daphane Moore
  • I want to take this opportunity to thank you for Mary Lou! She is the most perfect Live-in Caregiver that we could have found! I would highly recommend your agency to anyone who needs a care-giver for a family member with special needs. Your verbal recommendations were just as important as your dossiers!

    Karen Tollenaar
  • Preferred were excellent people to deal with. They kept me informed of the progress of the companion for my father who was coming to Canada. I told them what his needs were and they did a great job in filling my request. Anyone who has an aged love one, or anyone that needs a companion should consider the services of Preferred.

  • I wanted to forward you a thank you note for going to the airport in hopes to meet Irish last night. I realize it must have been very hard and frustrating to be there until 1 in the morning. I just want to let you know we truly appreciate all your help and assistance.

    Cheryl Walsh
  • On behalf on my mother Marjorie, I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you have done! The fact that I was able to find such qualified care from your firm within 7 days deserves an applause! As you know my mother is in the later stages of Alzheimer’s disease and had suffered a hip fracture. The care Christine provides is outstanding and I am now able to lead a life of my own knowing that my mother is safe in her care. Christine has also provided a much needed companion and manages all aspects of the home care, meals and does a suburb job!

  • Just a little follow up note to thank you via this letter for what you have done for Jessica. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your diligent efforts.

  • I just wanted to let you know that Emma is doing a wonderful job!!!! She is starting to warm to me (I think…. she’s talking more anyway) and she seems very happy. She is so good with Kasha, and she helps out a ton around the house. I am so so so pleased with her, as is Stephen. THANK-YOU!!!!!

    Carrie Doll

Also, if you need to get a hold of me before that time, I can be reached on my Blackberry: or by e-mail. Thanks again and I’ll talk to you tomorrow!

    Sunea Corry
  • I wanted to take a minute and tell you how very much I appreciate everything you have done for me. You have shown me light at the end of the tunnel. I very much appreciate all your hard work, assistance and patience you have shown me during the last while. I know your job is not easy but you are doing a great job and working very hard to help me. Thank you very much.

    Tasha Duncan
  • The service and support were excellent. It was reassuring knowing that there was support at the end of the telephone to assist with any problems. I will not hesitate to use your service again when Marilou leaves us and we have to search for a replacement.

    Kay Wilson
  • Thanks very much, wow! That is in three days! We will be there to pick her up. I really appreciate your time and efforts in helping us, and your care in talking through things on the phone.

    Joanne Webster
  • Good morning, I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in such a short period of time. We are extremely excited for the arrival of a new nanny and are very confident that from the interviews, we will be able to hire a competent nanny!

    Ashley Meszaros
  • A note to let you know how much we appreciate your help in finding a caregiver.  She is a little shy and we trust that in time she will open up more. So far, we are really delighted. Please let us know if there is anything more that we need to do.

  • Thank you SO much for getting Gina for us. She is an absolute angel! We couldn’t have gotten a better fit. She is irreplaceable. Cheers

The boys are really taking to her and I am quickly realizing the great benefits of our new arrangement. I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work you put forth in making this a reality for our family, it is greatly appreciated!

    Shawna J
  • I hope this note finds you well. I wanted to thank you very much for helping Jen to obtain her work permit last week. Stefan explained everything you did at the airport and we really appreciate all your efforts and persistence. Jen is just thrilled to have the work permit and we are very happy that everything worked out.

    Again, thank you very much for your assistance, we greatly appreciate it.

  • I refer lots of people to your organization! We love our nanny and I am never letting her go! kidding aside, Anjanette has already changed my life. If your job ever seems mundane, think of Anjanette and me, we couldn’t have found each other without your help!

    Dana, Tara, and Rory
  • I just wanted to give you a little update on our nanny Ninfa. She has been nothing short of amazing to our family since she arrived to Canada and in our home in September. I could not have imagined a better scenario for childcare for our 2 boys. They have gotten used to her very quickly and have accepted her as part of our family. As a consequence, my return to work was made much easier and less stressful. Opting for a live-in nanny for childcare has truly been a great decision for our family. Thank you for your help and guidance in choosing our nanny. She’s a really good match for us and we hope she stays with us for several years to come!

    Julie Marie
  • Hi Elizabeth – I just wanted to tell you that things with Vanessa are excellent! We have really found a nice rhythm – and our household is running so smoothly. The kids love her to pieces – and I really enjoy her company as well.  She is so helpful and accommodating too! Thanks Elizabeth!

    Rebecca M
  • Thank you Joy for all your help in helping us choose our nanny from Hong Kong. Veronica has a loving and warm heart towards our children and we could not have asked for anything better
    I have forwarded your name and number to some friends that are looking for nannies and have recommended your services.
