Premier Homecare
We know how difficult it can be to age independently, and we understand the unique challenge of watching a loved one struggle to do so—especially when you can’t provide all the support they need. JSSA opens its door to you for these moments. We’re the health and social wellness agency that believes that to be high-quality, home care must be rooted in caring and a commitment to seeing the whole person. This is why our Premier Homecare caregivers and registered nurses receive ongoing professional training, to be able to tailor a plan that can work for your family. And it’s how we’ve helped people like you feel a sense of comfort, knowing loved ones can live independently and safely in their own homes. Across Montgomery County and the District, our neighbors have benefited from our approach to caring. After her husband died, it was important to Rose to stay in her family home—our home care staff gave her the support she needed to be able to do so, and they gave her son Tom the confidence that his mother was in good hands. At JSSA, providing expert support to our neighbors is more than just our job. It’s how we’re working to heal our corner of the world. Our door is open—come in.
