At Choice Care we are a team of skilled and compassionate professionals who are ready to serve you and your family.

David Jernigan



Choice Home Care was founded by David Jernigan, a Birmingham native. In 2000, David started Carefirst Home Health and Hospice, which is now St. Vincents’ Home Health. Understanding the need for care beyond the home health option, David founded Choice Home Care. Choice is comprised of caring, compassionate staff who will strive to keep your loved one in their security and familiarity of home. Choice offers supportive services, personalized assistance and health care designed to help with activities of daily living.

We only hire qualified, experienced caregivers, selecting them personally so your loved one receives the best possible care. Since 2000 we have served Jefferson County and the greater Birmingham area with excellence in home care. Our selection and training process is stringent. We go through these processes to ensure the best care for your loved one:

  • We qualify staff by drug screens, background checks, interviews and references
  • We train our staff through courses set forth by the State of Alabama
  • Our staff are trained by a Nurse Manager, and monitored by our professional management staff
  • Our staff is trained in Alzheimer and dementia care

Why Choose Choice Home Care

Our clients tell us they are thankful for the difference Choice Home Care 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.


At Choice we pride ourselves in listening first then quickly responding to your needs.


Choice 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-Hour 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 Choice.

Alzheimer's Specialists

Choice caregivers are all certified by the Alzheimer’s Association (Cares Program). In addition, they 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.

What Customers Are Saying

“My Grandad received special attention. The caregiver was incredibly professional, making the entire experience as stress-free as possible. Your care has made a tough situation manageable.”
