Maxine Holland, PSW – Owner

I completed journey to PSW in June 2019, graduating with honours. Prior to that, took one-and-one-half year of Registered Practical Nursing, and a one year program in Pre-Health Sciences, also graduating with honours.

Experience prior to the education was mainly caring for ailing family members, providing respite, and end-of-life care.

After 20 years working in an office, the change was good, I have found my passion, caring for others. I pride myself in the compassionate care that is often lacking from the public resources that are in limited supply.

My schedule filled up within 6 months of starting Preferred Personal Care, the feedback from Caregivers, Families, and Colleagues has confirmed I have found my passion.

Allow me to share it with you and your loved one.
