About Premier Home Care

Family Helping Families

Premier Home Care is a premium personal care assistance and companion caregiver agency, locally owned and operated with a mission to bring a concierge experience to each senior and their families.

Co-founders Mark Wathen and Chantal Lessard are a mother and son team with a genuine love of aging people and extensive business backgrounds.


Mark’s wife, Johanne Gauthier, also has years of experience as a professional caregiver, and Chantal has worked with blind, deaf and mentally challenged people as well as cancer patients. Through these work experiences the family realized there was an opportunity to offer much better care than what was currently available to our precious seniors.

As long-time local residents, the family understands the many resources available to seniors. Using this hometown knowledge the family has created the gold standard in senior care. The services offered are almost endless and can be tailored to meet big and small needs.

Mark and Laura did a fabulous job finding a caregiver for our elderly mother. They took the time and patience to meet with us to figure out her various needs. She is not ready to go into a senior's residence and with the onset of alzheimer's looming, compounded by loneliness due to covid, we needed to find someone who not only spoke her language but also would be there as companionship.


...They have done an absolutely super job providing friendly, helpful, careful caregivers, both as regulars and when I need last minute replacements to cover a shift for a private caregiver who cancels. I've been using the company now for 7 months and I recommend it 100%. The owners are great people who are super involved and helpful, and have made my mom's life so much better and my life too.


Working with Mark and the team was excellent. They took great care of my mom in her time of need and I was always kept informed and consulted on important decisions. Everything was well organized and easy. Thanks for everything you do!

Mark, Laura et Suzanne font une belle équipe à l’écoute de nos besoins.
