A VISION, A BELIEF, AND A GOAL

Our Story

In the mid-1990’s, just outside of Sacramento, California, Michael Newman felt frustrated by the lack of resources for seniors in his community. An owner and operator of facilities for seniors, he saw many seniors and their loved ones arrive at his facilities confused and overwhelmed after trying to find the right assisted living community. This frustration eventually shaped his vision: To create a company that would serve seniors in the community by providing trusted care, compassionate support, and professional advice.

In 1996, Michael acted on his vision and founded Always Best Care. Since that time, Always Best Care has become one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care, senior living referral services and home health care. Always Best Care was formed with the belief and agenda of taking the burden off of the families’ shoulders and putting it on our own. People with passion have made Always Best Care what it is today. Although times may change, our foundation never will.

Michael Newman believes that a successful senior care company is built on successful relationships at every level, in all directions. The things that make every relationship work make business relationships work too – caring, trust, respect, and communication. These are the values that guide our relationships with our clients, franchisees, employees, vendors, our community, and everyone we touch. Caring relationships are the foundation of our work – a sincere concern for the betterment of life that goes beyond just doing what is required, but doing the most we can for the seniors entrusted to our care.

Always Best Care began franchising in 2007 and today provides services through a network of more than 225 franchised territories across the United States and Canada.

Always Best Care of Greater Milwaukee In Home Care Services

Personal Care Services

  • 24-Hour Care​
    Always Best Care helps you find the perfect round-the-clock in-home care plan to fit your loved one’s circumstances and needs. 24-hour care is support that is available to anyone who needs extra help to carry on living at home. It can include help with shopping, cooking, cleaning, washing, dressing and all other daily tasks. The need for 24-hour care can be prompted by accident, illness, dementia, frailty, disability, or frailty caused by the aging process.
  • Bathing, Grooming
    & Dressing​
    Bathing, dressing and grooming play a large role in a senior’s daily routines. Maintaining good personal hygiene can be vital in preventing sickness, while dressing can impact an elderly individual’s self-esteem. Grooming and dressing are integral to the activities of daily living.
  • Cognitive Impairments​​
    Cognitive impairment is not an illness, but a description of someone’s condition. It means they have trouble with things like memory or paying attention. They might have trouble speaking or understanding. And they might have difficulty recognizing people, places or things, and might find new places or situations overwhelming.
  • Companionship​​
    Companionship care is primarily emotional support and companionship for seniors who are generally healthy and who want to remain independent at home.
  • Errands & Transportation​​
    Help with errands, shopping, and transportation falls under the category of Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). These skills are necessary in order to live independently and that all of us do once we are up, out of bed, dressed, and ready to start our day. Transportation services for seniors can help maintain a level of independence without the need for the senior to drive themselves.
  • Escort to Activities​
    Escorting a senior to activities can help them if they feel unsafe or uncomfortable in public without accompaniment. Many trips are often used to assist seniors to utilize the services of health professionals and agencies that they otherwise would not be able to access.
  • Hospice
    Support / End-of-Life​​
    Hospice care is for people who are nearing the end of life. The services are provided by a team of health care professionals who maximize comfort for a person who is terminally ill by reducing pain and addressing physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs.
  • Hospital to Home​​
    Following a discharge from the hospital, the first three days are critical. During this time frame and beyond, the support given to a senior and their family play a vital role in the recovery process at home. A hospital-to-home program offers a comprehensive and flexible solution that can provide the physical and emotional support needed to recover safely and comfortably.
  • Incontinence / Toileting​​
    There are several types of incontinence, which include overflow incontinence, transient incontinence, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and knowing a little about the different types can help the caretaker and the family make the best decisions about what levels of toileting assistance should be included in the care plan of their loved one.
  • Laundry Services​​
    For seniors, laundry can be a challenge. As people age, they may have less energy and stamina. One of the biggest benefits of laundry services is that they can help seniors stay independent. Laundry services can also help keep seniors healthy by ensuring the are wearing clean clothing.
  • Light Housekeeping​​
    Light housekeeping includes things like watering the plants, dusting of surfaces and knickknacks, as well as picking up newspapers, magazines and other clutter. It includes emptying the trash, vacuuming and sweeping of main walk areas. It can also include organizing drawers, shelves and closets. In a nutshell light housekeeping is completing the specific tasks required to tidy up areas that a client uses. Examples of what a light housekeeping service does not include are heavy-duty cleaning tasks that require moving heavy furniture, washing windows, cleaning carpets, or scrubbing floors. Nor does it cover outside chores, such as shoveling snow off sidewalks, raking, or mowing the grass.
  • Live-In Care​​
    Live-in care is for seniors who need around-the-clock assistance from a caregiver. Assistance is generally non-medical and includes such tasks as medication management, shopping, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADL). Though caregivers sleep at the senior’s residence, they generally aren’t required for assistance at night.
  • Meal Preparation​
    Meal preparation and eating healthy and nutritional food is important for seniors. Meal preparation assistance for the elderly is not just about cooking, but involves so much more. Maintaining a regular and consistent schedule can also play a role in emotional and physical health.
  • Medication Reminders​
    Medication reminders are a nonmedical service provided by a caregiver or a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA). CNAs do not administer medications, or speak with a doctor or pharmacist about a senior’s medicine or regime—but they do ensure medication safety and regularity.
  • Mobility​
    Mobility is the ability to move or walk freely and easily — is critical for functioning well and living independently. As we age, we may experience changes to our mobility. There are many reasons for these changes, including changes in gait (how we walk), balance, and physical strength.
  • Nutrition Monitoring​​
    Nutrition is an important element of health in the older population and affects the aging process. The prevalence of malnutrition is increasing in this population and is associated with a decline in functional status, impaired muscle function, decreased bone mass, immune dysfunction, anemia, reduced cognitive function, poor wound healing, delayed recovery from surgery, higher hospital readmission rates, and mortality.
  • Overnight Care​​
    Overnight care revolves around a multitude of services which may include help using the restroom in the middle of the night, providing fluids and snacks in the evening, and assisting with preparing for bed. Elderly individuals may also receive help with transfer assistance throughout the night. Overnight caregivers can also prepare breakfast and offer morning care.
  • Safety Supervision​​
    Because more accidents occur inside the home than anywhere else, seniors and their caregivers must do everything in their power to make sure their homes are as safe and secure as possible. Some of the steps that can be taken to ensure homes are safe for seniors and their families include removing clutter, adding better lighting, rearranging cabinets and drawers, and assessing the safety risks of the bathroom.
  • Technology Assistance​​
    Technology can help the elderly live independently for longer by facilitating preventive care, early detection of, and response to, emerging health issues, as well as timely support for daily tasks. Technology offers a wide range of benefits to older adults. Seniors who use technology can also feel more connected to others, can be better engaged in the community and world around them, and be more informed about current events.

“Always Best Care really is the best care, always. We needed immediate care and Colleen had everything coordinated in less than 24 hours. Every care worker that came was exceptional. They were polite, kind and respectful. They followed the care plan and left daily notes. They did light housekeeping and made very nice meals. They interacted with the client, even watching Brewer game after Brewer game. One of the girls even wrote down the roster so he could follow who each player was and what time and channel future games were on.This was our first time with in home care and it has been great!! I highly recommend Always Best Care. I never worried if someone would be there. It was always covered. Thanks for making a tough situation easier.”

“This is by far the best home care agency in the area. Caregivers are conscientious, well trained and friendly. They fit right in when working with both my in-laws and my Mom. I was able to be a daughter, not a caregiver. I have referred ABC to my friends and they have been very happy with the caregivers also:) The agency works hard at finding a good fit for you and your loved one. I used to work in Senior Healthcare, so I have seen it all. I understand what to look for and the questions to ask. ABC is top notch and terrific in all aspects of home care. I will definitely use again when needed.”

“We were looking to move my dad to a new living facility and was introduced to Marisa of Always Best Care. From day one she was thoughtful and caring. She met with our family to find out more about my dad and his needs. She took the time and listened to what we had to say and never once did we feel rushed. She presented us with options and sent us all the information we needed to help us in making a decision. When we chose a couple of facilities that we were interested in she set up the appointments and was with us during those visits. Whenever we had a question she always got back to us in a timely manner. Even after we found a new home for my dad, she called to check up on how things were going. We were so blessed to have her in our corner and help us find the best place for our dad.”

“My mom was hesitant about moving to a senior living facility. She never felt quite comfortable when visiting friends. She ended up being hospitalized 2x in 6 months and we used Always Best Care for help after both hospital stays. They were fantastic and her caregivers were so very kind and helpful. So much so that my mom announced her decision was made, “ no senior living for me, I’ll use Always Best Care from now on. “”

“I live in California and being so far from my father was a big concern to me. I hired Always Best Care of Greater Milwaukee to care for him and they immediately put my mind at ease. Everyone in the company was so professional. I got to know Jo the scheduler, who was always so pleasant, and I spoke many times on the phone with Diane, who was his care manager and the owner would even check in with me from time to time. One time I could not get hold of my father and they ran over to check on him. They would always go the extra mile. And his Caregiver was amazing and now that my father is gone, I know I will be in touch with her for many years to come. I really don’t know what I would have done without this company. Everyone who I met or talked to were so very kind and caring. Thank you Always Best Care. If I could give you more than five stars I would!”

“My mom is starting to slow down. She’s fiercely independent and will not even consider senior living. Moving her from her house to an apartment with people of all ages was all we could get her to do. She has had a few hospital stays along with rehab. We do not live in the area and grew concerned when she’d come home We have relied on ALWAYS BEST CARE in Milwaukee several time as she transitions back home. Nothing short of wonderful Their care givers are warm and caring individuals who have all been given rave reviews by my mother. She now has confirmed no senior living. Only ALWAYS BEST CARE. She swears by them and has called me several times to get their number to give to her friends. Nothing but kindness from the office when we call. Calls are returned on a timely basis and Colleen, the owner, has a true understanding of aging parents and all that goes along with them. ALWAYS BEST CARE truly puts our minds at ease.”
