Will O.

“Our family is in its 7th month of using ABC to provide in-home care to help my father (who has severe physical limitations) care for my mother as her Alzheimer's continues to progress. The personnel are extremely efficient and warmly friendly, and that's a rare combination from our other experiences in elder care. They are knowledgeable and accommodating because customer service is so important to them. When our first caregiver couldn't continue with us due to personal reasons, ABC worked closely with us to find another caregiver whose personality was open and infectious and engaging to both parents. While all the caregivers we've met have been skilled and professional, finding that emotional connection can be tricky. ABC insured that the caregiver ultimately assigned to us treats us like family, and we feel the same way about her. The administration has been diplomatic and professional and gracious at all times, and our family has certainly tested those qualities as,at times, they've had to deal with three different adults with three different opinions about decisions or actions. They have been respectful and worked with all of us to reach a mutually agreeable solution. On every level, ABC interaction with us has been positive and encouraging. Their presence in our lives and home has made such a positive difference in difficult circumstances, We've never had any regrets or second thoughts about choosing ABC. I would, without hesitation, recommend this agency and these people with the highest possible praise to anyone looking for help for an elder relative.”

Laurie H.

“Your entire staff treated my wife like she was their own mother”

 In-Home Care Cordova, TN

How does In-home Senior Care in Cordova, TN 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.

 Senior Care Cordova, TN

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 Cordova, TN, 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 Cordova, TN 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 Cordova, TN

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 Cordova,TN 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 Cordova, TN

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.

Tops Bar-B-Q To Open a Cordova Location

Tops Bar-B-Q is on a roll. Or maybe a “bun” would be more accurate. The Memphis-based company is opening its 18th location in June.

“We’re building in Cordova,” says Hunter Brown with Tops Operations LLC.

The new restaurant will be at Germantown Parkway and Cordova Road. The company is building on one acre of the parking lot of Memphis’s Incredible Pizza Company at 1245 North Germantown Parkway, Suite 104.

Tops opened its 17th location — 4199 Hacks Cross Road — on February 14th.

They’ve wanted a location in Cordova as much as they want locations in Collierville, Arlington, and other places, Brown says. “This just came first.”

They want to open new restaurants in areas where customers who were used to having a Tops Bar-B-Q in their neighborhood are moving, Brown says. For example, if a customer grew up with the Tops in Frayser and now lives in Cordova, they “deserve to have their own.”

The original growth spurt was in the late ’60s and early ’70s when Tops opened restaurants in quick succession on Thomas Street, Summer Avenue at National Street, Lamar Avenue, Union Avenue, and Frayser Boulevard.

Tops continued to open restaurants over the next 30 years, but began its current growth spurt in 2021 with its restaurant at 6745 Stage Road in Bartlett and then Hacks Cross Road. “The trajectory is adding up to two locations a year until we feel like we have fulfilled the needs of Memphis and the surrounding areas.”

They’re not stopping to take a breath after Cordova. “When we open Cordova, we plan on breaking ground somewhere else.”

Tops Bar-B-Q opened in 1952 in Memphis. “Rhodes at Getwell is the oldest store open. The first store doesn’t exist anymore. It was about two miles north of where our Sycamore View and Macon store is now.”

As for the upcoming Cordova location, Brown says, “There will be definite features to the new Tops, which will face Cordova Road, including a “a dual drive-through to enhance speed of service.”And, he says, “We’ll open the restaurant with breakfast to meet the needs of the surrounding area and those commuting to work.”

Breakfast is currently available at nine Tops restaurants. “It’s still evolving. But the plan is to open new restaurants with breakfast.”

Brown says the restaurant is a long-time favorite. “Memphis as a community is faithful. You see it when the Grizzlies are winning. When the Tigers are hot. They support Memphis things.

“The reality is Memphis supports Memphis. And they know that although we are growing and big, we’re still a hometown locally owned company that’s been in their family and generations for many years. And every day when I’m inside a Tops whether it’s Frayser Boulevard or Summer National, someone is coming up to me with a story about how they and their family and friends came in wherever after school and ate.

“There’s so much nostalgia. And merely from just being around so long, it builds camaraderie. That doesn’t exist for national brands.”

Can I light off fireworks in Memphis? What to know about fireworks for Fourth of July

America's 247th birthday is fast approaching, and like every 4th of July, fireworks are sure to light up the night sky. Need a refresher on what fireworks are legal in Shelby County?

Here's everything you need to know about celebrating independence with a bang.

State laws for fireworks are similar across Mid-South

In Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi, the laws on fireworks are largely the same. Businesses can legally sell Class C fireworks with a permit, and consumers can set them off.

Class C fireworks contain an "explosive composition" of 2 grams or less, and include items such as sparklers, spinners, firecrackers, Roman candles and bottle rockets. Anything with a greater explosive yield like cherry bombs and M-80s are illegal to sell or use without a permit.

Beware of fines

Though the state laws are similar, differing city ordinances mean even Class C fireworks may be illegal in certain areas and could result in a fine, usually around $50.

In Collierville, Millington, Lakeland, Southaven, Olive Branch, Horn Lake and Hernando, fireworks usage is generally prohibited. Germantown users could see a much steeper fine of $500.

In unincorporated Shelby County, Memphis, Bartlett and Arlington, usage of Class C fireworks is legal, though Arlington only allows public usage on July 4 between 10 a.m. and 10:30 p.m.

11,500 fireworks-related ER trips in 2021

If you plan to create your own fireworks show this year, be aware of the risks involved. In 2021, there were 11,500 injuries from fireworks that required a trip to the ER across the country, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Even among nonexplosive fireworks, there were 1,500 injuries related to firecrackers and 1,100 to sparklers, which can reach temperatures of 1,200-2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Even for those who use fireworks every year, it's important to keep a few things in mind in case something goes wrong.

Make sure you know the law and how to stay safe this July 4th, and don't let a fun time with family and friends be ruined by an unwanted fine or a trip to the ER.
