Why Choose CareFirst

Our clients tell us they are thankful for the difference CareFirst makes in their life and their loved one’s lives.


We provide prompt, reliable professional caregivers to meet the individual needs of your loved one.

CareFirst caregivers are trained by an in-house nurse manager. In addition, we meet or exceed the training standards set forth by the State of Alabama and The Office of Senior Citizens.

Bonded & Insured

As an added protection for our clients, all of our employees are fully covered for liability while on the job.

24-Hours Availability

Someone is on call 24 hours. Speak to a live person and get immediate results–not an answering machine!

Drug Screening

Drug screens are performed initially, and also throughout the year. In addition to background checks, we check for any abuse history, fraud, and sex offense.

Background Checks

As a condition of employment, caregivers consent to a criminal background check. They must maintain an offense-free record to be employed by CareFirst.

Alzheimer's Specialists

CareFirst caregivers have access to the best, high quality training program which includes Alzheimer’s and Dementia Training recognized by the Alzheimer’s Association. The employee training and monthly continuing education program is managed by our supportive and knowledgeable nurse manager. In addition, our caregivers are experienced in dealing with dementia patients. Applied knowledge equals experience, and our goal is to bring peace of mind to family members who are impacted by this disease.

Our Reviews


Thank you for considering CareFirst

The purpose of this video is to talk to you about our company and the services we provide. We were  established more than 20 years ago and primarily service the elderly in the Birmingham Metro area.

We understand that many of you are faced with a tough decision in considering a parent or loved one may need to go to a facility.  

The services we provide help your parent or loved one with their daily living activities at home. We help those who have Alzheimers and dementia or are a fall risk, stay at home and give you peace of mind.

We understand that this could be a very stressful and uncertain time. We strive to provide excellent care and to communicate in a very responsive manor. Our goal and commitment is to treat each one of our clients and patients just as if they were a loved member of our own family. Thank you for watching and considering CareFirst.
