Personal Care Consultation


“ABC in Fletcher has an amazing team, and they made a huge difference for myself and my mother. We had them as in-home caregivers for 10 months. They are responsible, flexible and just a solid group with whom to work. I could reach them by phone immediately almost every time I needed to contact them. They handled billing and insurance claims and kept the caregiver plans absolutely up-to-date. As well as the regular RN visits. Jan, Mary and Melissa rock in addition to our caregivers. My only reason for not giving five stars has to do with the systemic challenge of finding enough caregivers. And in our case, caregivers who are proficient with Parkinson’s patients.”

Jennie G.

Working for ABC has been an honor because I really do love the company and we have some sweet clients. The ladies that work in the office are amazing and without them I do not think our company would thrive like it does. When I did an application, it was on accident and then I got a phone call asking me to come in and interview and honestly I’m so blessed. I love my job because it is my passion to help people and to do what I can to make their daily living better and easier. I honestly don’t think there is anything that needs to change about ABC. I have never worked for such an amazing company before”

“I own a financial services business and share clients with Always Best Care. Recently, one of our shared clients experienced a fall which resulted in a broken hip. One of my first calls, after EMS, was to ABC. Mary Steiner responded immediately and offered to meet the client at the ER. She was wonderful and so very professional in the manner in which she handled the entire harrowing experience. She arranged for overnight care since the family had to arrive from out of town. I am so grateful for her genuine care for our client and stepping in during an emergency to help us handle the situation. I would recommend ABC for services because they absolutely go above and beyond with such a special touch. Robbie Chenault, Elevated Living Services”

 In-Home Care Canton, NC

How does In-home Senior Care in Canton, NC work?

Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it's especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.

The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.

At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one ages, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

Aging in Place: The Preferred Choice for Most Seniors

While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a unfamiliar assisted living community, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.

Here are just a few of the reasons why older men and women prefer to age at home:


How much does a senior's home truly mean to them? A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old. With the help of elderly care in Canton, NC, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.

Healthy Living
Healthy Living

Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors. Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.


For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like an assisted living community. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.

Cost and Convenience
Cost and Convenience

More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, can be less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.

With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care in Canton, NC gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.

Empowers Seniors

Affordable Care Plans

In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.

Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.

At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.

In addition to our flexible care options, families should also consider the following resources to help offset potential home care costs:

Veteran's Benefits
Veteran's Benefits

Aid and Attendance benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.

Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-Term Care Insurance

Many senior care services like in-home care are included in long-term care insurance options. Research different long-term care solutions to find a plan that provides coverage for senior care.

Private Insurance
Private Insurance

Home care can be included as part of a senior's private insurance plan. Read over your loved one's insurance policy carefully or speak with their insurance provider to determine if in-home care is covered.

Life Insurance
Life Insurance

Depending on the life insurance plan, you may be able to apply your policy toward long-term care. You may be able to use long-term-care coverage to help pay for in-home elderly care.

Respite Care Canton, NC

During your Care Plan consultation with Always Best Care, your Care Coordinator will speak with you about in-home care costs and what options there may be to help meet your budget needs.

Compassionate Care. Trusted Caregivers

When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.

Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.

At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Canton,NC understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.

Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.

Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.

 Caregivers Canton, NC

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

The first step in getting quality in-home care starts with a personal consultation with an experienced Care Coordinator. This initial consultation is crucial for our team to learn more about you or your elderly loved one to discover the level of care required. Topics of this consultation typically include:

An assessment of your senior loved one


An in-depth discussion of the needs of your senior loved one to remain in their own home


Reviewing a detailed Care Plan that will meet your senior loved one's needs


Our caregivers are trained to spot changes that clients exhibit, like mental and physical decline. As your trusted senior care company, we will constantly assess and update your Care Plan to meet any new emotional, intellectual, physical, and emotional needs.

If you have never considered in-home care before, we understand that you and your family may have concerns about your Care Plan and its Care Coordinator. To help give you peace of mind, know that every team member and caregiver must undergo comprehensive training before being assigned to a Care Plan.

When you're ready, we encourage you to contact your local Always Best Care representative to set up a Care Consultation. Our Care Coordinators would be happy to meet with you in person to get to know you better, discuss your needs, and help put together a personalized Care Plan specific to your needs.

WCPSS works to implement parents' bill of rights as board members vow to have ongoing conversations

CARY, N,C, (WTVD) -- There was a lot of discussion during the Wake County School Board policy committee meeting as board members took up the Parents' Bill of Rights. They spent Tuesday afternoon taking a close look at the district policy and revisions needed to bring it in line with the new law.

The Parents' Bill of Rights is an expansive piece of legislation. It bans teaching on sexuality and gender identity for kindergarten through fourth-graders. It requires parents to be informed if their child wants to change their name or wants to use pronouns to refer to themselves. It also allows parents to look over course materials and books.

Supporters say it keeps parents informed about what is happening in their child's classroom.

"The parents have the rights to oversee the upbringing of their children. What's dangerous is when schools and teachers put themselves in the place of parents and try to get between parents and their children," said Tami Fitzgerald with NC Values Coalition. "We will be watching. We're already getting stories from different counties around the state. One county refused to or was about to adopt a policy that wouldn't require the schools to notify the parents about a pronoun change. It's right there in the law in black and white."

Opponents call the law dangerous.

"We know that more than half of houseless young people are LGBTQ and it shows the story that students are asked to leave their home if they're outed before they are ready or their family is not supportive," said Rebby Kern with Equality NC. "This bill is completely distracting the general public from what we need to be focused on, which is funding public schools, ensuring educators are getting raises they deserve, and ensuring there's enough bus drivers to carry out all routes

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board Chair Rani D. Dasi released a statement on the Parents' Bill of Rights, saying in part:

"On behalf of the Board, I'd like to make a statement and raise awareness about the irresponsible, harmful, and thoughtlessly wrong decisions coming out of the state Capitol.

Legislators returned to Raleigh this week. You would think they returned because they understand the damaging consequences of not approving a budget that includes compensation decisions for state employees, retirees, and school staff including teachers, and others.

You would think they returned because they care that leaving these decisions in limbo is having a damaging impact on a profession that is already struggling to recruit and retain staff, which will harm North Carolina's children.

You would think they returned because they know that North Carolina misses out on more than $500 million in federal funding for each month that Medicaid expansion isn't implemented, and that they care about how beneficial it would be for expanding access to health care for North Carolinians.

You would think all that. But you would be wrong. They returned to make schools less safe for students, passing a so-called "Bill of Rights" that intrudes into the most personal aspects of people's lives, and taking away parent choice as if these legislators know what is best for children."

Bringing WCPSS policy in line with the law will take a few months. School board members said there is still a lot of work to do.

Tuesday's meeting adjourned after about two hours of discussion. The board said it hopes to have the policy completely updated by January.

The measure also allows for parents to sue if school districts do not follow the new law.

After nearly a year, Le’s Sandwiches is on its way back in Charlotte. The banh mi shop is planning its reopening for Saturday, Oct. 14.

Longtime fans of the family owned sandwich shop can soon reminisce about navigating the potholes at Asian Corner Mall on as they pull into the sleek new space developed by Beauxwright across the parking lot from the original location. The restaurant operated inside the mall from 2004 until the property was shuttered in early January.

Owners Minh Quang Nguyen and Le Thi Le-Nguyen had originally put the restaurant up for sale to make way for retirement. But those plans changed as their son, Tuan Nguyen, decided to take over with the continued help of his parents — and they began the process of moving to a new space nearby.

Outside Le’s new building, a bright floral mural from Asheville artist Kathryn Crawford not only adds color to the space, but also nods to the restaurant’s past.

“The flowers are a representation of the different Asian communities that were a part of the Asian Corner Mall that we wanted to pay tribute to,” a post on the restaurant’s Instagram account said.

Step inside, and you’ll find handwoven Vietnamese baskets decorating the walls, along with photographs (including the one below by CharlotteFive photographer Alex Cason), artwork and other nods to its previous home.

And the menu? You’ll still be able to savor a banh mi with Vietnamese cold cuts or lemongrass grilled pork with Vietnamese mayonnaise, pickled carrots, daikon, fresh jalapeños and cilantro.

2. Carolina will have a lengthy December layoff between Dec. 5 and 16. That stretch will also include exams, of course, but it's still the longest non-Christmas layoff since the 2018 team also went 11 days between games. The 2018 and 2024 teams will have the longest such breaks in the last 15 years. It will be interesting to see how Hubert Davis uses that time with his team. Last year's squad didn't get that break--and it might have been beneficial.

3. The three road ACC games immediately starting in January will get plenty of attention, and it will be a challenge to travel to Pitt and Clemson--two teams that play a very rugged style--back to back. But it's also worth remembering that it's likely students won't be on campus for those two games, which provides a certain advantage. Classes start at NC State on Jan. 8, so PNC Arena will be at full ferocity for Carolina's visit there on Jan. 10. The last time Carolina played three straight road ACC games consecutively in a non-Covid year was 2016; the Tar Heels went 1-2 in that stretch against Louisville, Notre Dame and Boston College.

4. And those three road games even out in late February and early March, when the Tar Heels host three straight home games against Miami, State and Notre Dame at a time of year when teams are often trying to stack victories to build NCAA Tournament credentials.

5. Always check the Saturday-Monday turnarounds. Carolina has two of them. The first is in January, as the Tar Heels follow a road trip to Boston College with a home game against Wake Forest. That's a manageable schedule. The other is tougher and may eventually be important in determining how outsiders think of this team approaching March. On Feb. 24, the Heels travel to Virginia. And on Feb. 26, Carolina hosts Miami. It's generally expected that both of those squads will be Atlantic Coast Conference contenders; playing them both in just over 48 hours is a good replica of an NCAA Tournament weekend.

6. Another note about that Virginia game--Carolina has a week off to prepare for the Cavaliers. It's never bad to have extra time to get ready for a Virginia team that plays perhaps the most unique style in the league.

7. How about this: the Tar Heels will play only one 9 p.m. ACC game, a welcome relief. And after that game--a home date with Louisville on Jan. 17--the Heels don't play a game that starts later than 7 p.m. That's one of the more fan-friendly schedules Carolina has had in recent years.

8. Saturday home games have become almost a basketball holiday in Chapel Hill. This year, those games are Florida State (Dec. 2), Syracuse (Jan. 13), Duke (Feb. 3), Virginia Tech (Feb. 17) and NC State (March 2). Expect those games to be the most popular tickets on the home schedule.

9. A lack of Quad 1 victories was very damaging to Carolina's postseason hopes last year. Looking at this schedule, there appear to be three road games that are likely to be Q1 opportunities: at Virginia, at Miami and at Duke. As we've learned, though, which team falls into which quad is entirely unpredictable in September (and sometimes even in February).

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- On the second day of the 2023 IBMA World of Bluegrass Festival, organizers announced the event was planning to leave Raleigh.

The festival came to Raleigh in 2013, relocating from Nashville in a change that was considered a coup at the time. The festival is considered the largest urban bluegrass festival in the world; it regularly brings more than 200,000 people to downtown Raleigh.

IBMA World of Bluegrass has reportedly generated more than $88 million in direct economic impact for the greater Raleigh area since 2013.

Organizers are hoping this year attendance will return to pre-pandemic levels.

Festival organizers had nothing but positive things to say about Raleigh in a release announcing the decision to leave the city.

"Raleigh has been the fourth and most successful home for IBMA World of Bluegrass," said Paul Schiminger, the IBMA's Executive Director during most the event's tenure in Raleigh. "In seeking to attract our organization to Raleigh in 2013, the city worked closely to partner with the IBMA to expand the association's long-standing festival into a new model which included both ticketed and free stages in the downtown corridor. The success of this model was evident in the growth of attendees to over 200,000 people enjoying bluegrass music in each of the years from 2016 to 2019."

"We appreciate the strong partnership with the City of Raleigh, Wake County, PineCone and the entire community for these 11 years," says Dan Boner, IBMA Board Chair, "and we look forward to being here through 2024. It has been a mutually beneficial relationship for the IBMA and the City of Raleigh. Our decision is a mission-driven one to move our unparalleled week of bluegrass music to other communities to build and serve new audiences just as we have in the past."

It's unclear what exactly will replace the festival, but Raleigh representatives confirmed another large music festival is in the works.

"The festival will certainly include bluegrass but will be much more culturally expansive," said David Brower, PineCone Executive Director. "Gospel, funk, blues and old time are deeply rooted in this community and a whole lot of fun! We want to make sure this new festival both looks and sounds like Raleigh." PineCone is the Raleigh based non-profit that has booked and produced the downtown bluegrass festival since it arrived in 2013.

"We're going to take everything that we've learned and everything that people love about Bluegrass in its current iteration and build upon that to make sure that we better represent the diversity within this community that we all know and love. There's going to be a lot of bluegrass in there, which people have grown to love, but there's also going to be blues and funk and gospel and a few other surprises around the corner, I hope," Brower said.

"While it is always sad to see a wonderful era end, we eagerly anticipate what our great city has planned for 2025 and beyond," said Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin. "We're grateful to our friends at the IBMA for expanding the roots and branches of bluegrass in Raleigh, and I look forward to a reimagined festival run by PineCone, with a continued focus on diversity and inclusion."
