Home Care Preferred in Devon was set up in 2020 following Fadi Alhassan and Ching Apilado meeting the founder of the company, Ken Waterhouse.
Fadi is an accomplished businessman and chairs MIDWIL Trading Inc. who are a local specialist supplier and contractor that provides a diverse range of road products and services in Qatar. Fadi’s entrepreneurial achievements continue to bring inspiration to others.
An area that has always interested Fadi has been the care sector. As someone that has always been family centred, involvement with Home Care Preferred was an obvious choice.
Ching Apilado has worked with Fadi for many years. She also has a keen interest in the home care sector. With a family living in Devon she feels very much, part of the community.
With investment in place, Ken and the Home Care Preferred team proceeded to start the Devon branch and were very fortunate to recruit Nikki Barnes who was appointed as the registered care manager in Devon.
Despite the challenges of starting a business during the pandemic of 2020 the Home Care Preferred team in Devon, under Nikki’s excellent leadership, grew month by month. Importantly the feedback from team members, clients and their families could not be better.
This branch of Home Care Preferred is delighted to be serving communities in Devon & Cornwall.

“Home Care Preferred were very professional and easy to deal with. The carer was attentive and pleasant and did everything we asked her to do and more. Very easy people to communicate with using emails – as I live in Australia”
“In the 6 years of having working closely with at least 3 agencies, and 11 carers, this is the first time I have found cares who have been so spot on, loving, gentle, friendly, warm and genuine. They stick to the routine and my nana is happy as can be. They are consistent, on time, work well together and so very helpful and positive. So grateful and happy.”

“This is my first experience of needing help at home. I have been very impressed by the standards of best practice employed by Home Care Preferred. By the intelligent and well informed standards of care. The willingness and ability to help in any way needed or requested. Also the meticulous attention to checks that the care given is accurate and of high quality. The courtesy of keeping client informed of any changes.”
“My parents are really delighted with the care and assistance that the carer provides to them. He always arrives promptly and my dad who is 91 is so grateful for help washing and dressing, it makes him much less tired and able to cope and enjoy his day. The carer is very kind, patient and aware of both my parent’s physical capacities. He is also excellent company and is just a pleasure. The carer organises my father’s medication, gives it to him, puts in his hearing aids, helps wash and dress him and gives him breakfast, He recognises my father’s need for engagement and they have good chats. I feel my parents are in the best and safest hands and that is all you can ask for.”
