Home Care Chandler, AZ

They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.

However, as seniors grow older, completing daily tasks like showering and enjoying activities such as visiting the historic The McCroskey House gets harder without someone by their side. Unfortunately, many older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.

Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live far away from long-term, institutionalized facilities and closer to the place where they feel most comfortable - their home. Home care in Chandler, AZ is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

TESTIMONIALS

“I’d been caring for my father full time, 24/7 for 3.5 years before realizing I needed a break. Deciding on Respite Care was a difficult decision for many reasons. (If you know, you know). By the time we found Dixie at Always Best Care we had been through 6 care providers and two agencies in 12 months due to staffing issues. Marcy (owner) was warm, engaging and present. The support staff at Always Best were only ever a text away. (Thank you ladies!) And Dixie, Dad’s final friend, was a perfect fit. It didn’t take long for Dixie to feel like part of our family. On Dads last morning before Hospice we took him to breakfast at his favorite place. And if didn’t feel right unless Dixie was there. Thank you for helping my Dad and my Family through these final steps. You have my gratitude. (Image used with permission)”

“Our family came to Always Best Care by way of VA benefits awarded which they were contracted to provide. Quickly, we could see ABC rates were more than competitive than the private care provider our family had in place. The Director's personal customer service was heads and shoulders above any provider in the East Valley we had interviewed or utilized. The staff was highly qualified, on time and professional. The Director hosted personal orientations with each new caregiver that entered our home to ensure there was never a gap in continuity of Care. Our prior experience was deflating and included 3 shifts that "no one even showed up for work" and worse, "the company didn't even know that the caregiver was not at work". ABC was just the opposite!! They used technology/communication savvy to ensure our Dad had the coverage we expected. I was impressed that Always Best Care prioritized my Father and, the overall needs of the entire family. As the care level increased, Always Best Care helped us adjust, understand what was happening and ultimately - increased care as needed...no matter in the event that it was an holiday or an overnight request. They were there with us personally to the end. I am a huge fan of ABC and can't express enough how grateful I am/was for their friendship and help. Please trust your loved ones to Always Best Care! You will love it~~”

“My mother had excellent care at Always Best Care for around 5 years. Her initial caregiver stayed with my mom the whole time and became a part of the family. She helped my mom with activities of daily living, drove her to appointments, helped her shop, cleaned and cooked, and helped her socialize with other seniors. As my mother's health deteriorated, Always Best Care helped find additional nursings assistants for around the clock care. All the nursing assistants were professional and caring. I highly recommend Always Best Care of Chandler/Gilbert.”

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Chandler, AZ?

lm-check

Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it is 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.

lm-check

When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.

lm-check

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.

lm-check

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 gets older, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

Home Care Chandler, AZ
Respite Care

Respite Care Services

According to AARP, more than 53 million adults living in the U.S. provide care to someone over 50 years old. Unfortunately, these caregivers experience stress, exhaustion, and even depression. Our respite care services help family caregivers address urgent obligations, spend time with their children, and enjoy nearby activities. Perhaps more importantly, respite care gives family members time to recharge and regroup. Taking personal time to de-stress reduces the risk of caregiver burnout. So, if you've always wanted to eat at the local Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar or visit The Edwards House, don't feel bad. Doing so is great for both you and your loved one.

At the end of the day, our goal is to become a valuable part of your senior's daily routine. That way, we may help give them the highest quality of life possible. We know that staying at home is important for your loved one, and we are here to help make sure that is possible.

If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.

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 - something that is unavailable to many older people today.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a strange nursing home, 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, then, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old.

With the help of elderly care in Chandler, AZ, 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.

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 a nursing home. 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.

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 and more affordable to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. According to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, seniors who age in the comfort of their homes can save thousands of dollars per month.

In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, are often 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 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.

 Elderly Care Chandler, AZ

Affordable Care

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:

If your loved one qualifies, Medicaid may help reduce in-home care costs. Review your AZ's Medicaid program laws and benefits, and make sure your senior's financial and medical needs meet Medicaid eligibility requirements.
Attendance and aid benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.
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.
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.
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.
 Senior Care Chandler, AZ

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 Chandler, AZ 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.

Assisted Living Referral Services

While it's true that many seniors prefer to age at home, sometimes in-home care isn't the best fit. For those seniors and their families, choosing an assisted living facility makes more sense. Unfortunately, finding the optimal care facility is easier said than done in today's day and age. That's when Always Best Care's assisted living referral services begin to make a lot of sense.

Assisted living is a form of housing intended for seniors who require varying degrees of medical and personal attention. Accommodations may include single rooms, apartments, or shared living arrangements. Assisted living communities are typically designed to resemble a home-like environment and are physically constructed to encourage the independence of residents.


Respite Care Chandler, AZ

At assisted living communities, seniors receive help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and eating. They may also benefit from coordination of services with outside healthcare providers, and monitoring of resident activities to ensure their health, safety, and well-being. Caregivers who work at assisted living communities can also provide medication administration and personal care services for older adults.

Other services offered within assisted living communities can include some or all of the following:

  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry
  • Recreational Activities
  • Social Outings
  • Emergency Medical Response
  • Medication Monitoring
  • Family Visitation
  • Personal Care
 Caregivers Chandler, AZ

At Always Best Care, our representatives can match your senior's emotional, physical, and financial needs with viable assisted living communities nearby. Results are based on comparative data, so you can select the best choice for you or your loved one.

Always Best Care works closely with local senior living communities to gain valuable knowledge that we then use to help seniors and their loved ones make informed decisions. This information can include basic care and rent, resident availability, and services provided. Because Always Best Care is compensated by these communities, we provide senior living referral services at no extra cost to you.

Some of the most popular assisted living communities to consider in our area include the following:

  • Sunrise of Chandler
  • Brookdale Chandler Ray Road
  • Copper Creek Inn Memory Care Community
  • Solterra Senior Living at Chandler
  • Brookdale Central Chandler
  • Brookdale Chandler Regional
Home Care Chandler, AZ

For many seniors, moving into a senior living community revolves around how and when they want to make a transition to more involved care. Some seniors are more proactive about transitioning to independent living. Others choose to remain home until their care needs or other requirements are satisfied. Remember - our staff is here to help. Contact our office today to learn more about assisted living communities and how we can find a facility that exceeds your expectations.

Serrano’s Mexican Restaurants will close its downtown Chandler location on June 1, and it has listed the property for sale.

The Serrano’s family, which has operated the restaurant chain in the Valley for 44 years, said in a March 5 announcement that the Chandler location, at 141 S. Arizona Ave., is one of its largest restaurants and is quite costly to run on a day-to-day basis.

“As the oldest family-owned business in Chandler, we did not make this decision lightly,” Ric Serrano, CEO of Serrano’s Mexican Restaurants, said in a statement. “This particular location is the only one we own outright. With the influx of new restaurants downtown, we’ve seen a decline in business over the past few years, and with more than 13,000 square feet, it’s also our most expensive restaurant to operate.”

The Chandler restaurant also has two large banquet rooms that can hold events with up to 125 people.

Between the restaurant and the parking lot on the southwest corner of Boston and Washington streets, the Serranos own a little more than three-fourths of an acre across six small parcels in downtown Chandler next to Chandler City Hall. Lane Neville from NAI Horizon is representing the Serrano family on the sale of the property.

The Serrano’s building in Chandler was constructed in 1948, according to the Maricopa County Assessor.

The three other Serrano’s Mexican Restaurants in the Valley, plus the fast-causal concept Pronto by Serrano’s will all stay open. The company said it is offering Chandler employees jobs at the other locations.

Serrano’s will also be keeping its corporate offices in Chandler.

“While this marks the end of an era, we are grateful for the many years of memories we’ve made with the community – from hosting wedding receptions and memorials to celebrating milestone birthdays and serving as many young people’s first place of employment as a host or busser,” Serrano said in statement.

Until the restaurant closes in June, it will continue to operate as usual.

CHANDLER, Ariz. – Saras Micro Devices, an emerging leader in cutting-edge power performance solutions leveraging integrated packaging design, today announced the grand opening of its new headquarters and state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Chandler, Arizona. The decision to open a new manufacturing center in Arizona is part of Saras’ longer-term strategy to support its growth in the high-performance computing (HPC) artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML) sectors and capitalize on the rapidly expanding semiconductor ecosystem in the region. The company is relocating its headquarters from Atlanta, Georgia, where its Research & Development Center will remain.

"This move is not just a change in geographic location; it is an intentional strategic decision to align our vision with our customers in driving the U.S. semiconductor industry forward,” said Ron Huemoeller, CEO of Saras Micro Devices. “We are grateful for the partnership with the City of Chandler, the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, and the Arizona Commerce Authority, as their support has been instrumental in our successful relocation. This move supports our mission to become an integral part of Arizona’s burgeoning technology ecosystem and our desire to contribute to the strength of the United States’ domestic semiconductor industry. This is where our future becomes a reality, and we’re just getting started.”

The move involves a planned investment of over $50 million in the Chandler facility, which is located at 3200 W. Germann Road. The new facility initially boasts 33,000 sq. ft. of clean room, manufacturing, and administrative space. Saras will employ approximately 50 people in the near term, which will be primarily composed of engineering talent. By close of 2025, both the site and staff will undergo significant expansion, with a projected growth to 43,000 sq. ft., inclusive of a larger 13,000-sq.-ft. clean room.

The proximity of the new headquarters to other key semiconductor ecosystem partners, coupled with Arizona’s cost-effective operations and investment in talent development, uniquely positions Saras to capitalize on these strategic advantages while contributing to a robust domestic semiconductor industry.

“The City of Chandler is thrilled to further expand our semiconductor supply chain industry and bring another technology headquarters to our community with the addition of Saras Micro Devices,” stated Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “We continue to make the short list for these coveted projects due to our central location, top-notch educational system, and pro-business climate. Saras has been a great partner to work with during this process, and we look forward to growing our relationship with them over the years to come."

“This HQ relocation allows Saras Micro Devices to address present needs of the market while strengthening its ability to develop technology for the future,” said Greater Phoenix Economic Council President & CEO Chris Camacho. “Saras’ innovation in integrated power delivery for semiconductor devices using AI and ML will boost the region’s semiconductor cluster and technological competitiveness.”

“We are excited Saras Micro Devices has selected Arizona for its new headquarters,” said Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “The Chandler manufacturing facility will enable Saras to continue advancing semiconductor innovation, further showcasing Arizona’s attractiveness as the premier destination for advanced semiconductor operations and contributing to our thriving technology ecosystem. We look forward to supporting their future success in Chandler.”

A new Japanese discount store is now open in metro Phoenix.

Teso Life opened at 1880 W. Chandler Blvd., Chandler, on Dec. 30, 2023. Shoppers will find a diverse array of Japanese and other Asian products including makeup, skincare, small housewares, clothing, snacks and more.

Teso Life, which says it offers "high-quality, creative, low-cost" products, joins another wildly popular Japanese discount store, Daiso, which has three locations in metro Phoenix.

Here is everything to know about Arizona's first Teso Life store.

What is Teso Life?

Teso Life is a Japanese casual-life product department store. The company collaborates with Japanese suppliers and developers to offer a wide array of products at a low cost. You can find fashion, food, make-up, supplies, stationery, toys, kitchen products and more at Teso Life.

Is Teso Life Chinese or Japanese?

Teso Life is a Japanese store founded in May 2017, according to the company's website.

Who is the owner of Teso Life?

Entrepreneur Andy Lin founded Teso Life following years of investment in developing a department store-style concept that focuses on leading Japanese beauty brands, according to Forth Worth Business Press.

Does Teso Life have food?

Teso Life sells hundreds of Japanese foods and snacks such as cookies, chips, nuts, dried seafood, candies, chocolates, instant food, seasonings and beverages.

Its freezer and refrigerated food section is designed for convenient meals and snacks. Highlights include Japanese street foods like takoyaki and desserts like mille-crepe vanilla cake and ice cream.

Some of the brands available at Teso Life are Kasugai, Meiji, Lotte and Kracie.

Teso Life vs. Daiso: What are the differences?

Teso Life positions itself as a larger, more upscale version of Daiso, which has locations in Chandler, Mesa and Phoenix.

While both stores offer a range of Japanese products, Teso Life has a bigger selection and a wider variety of prices. Daiso is often likened to a dollar store, known for budget-friendly pricing but a more limited range of products.

Google Fiber holds groundbreaking in Chandler; could other Valley cities see service soon?

CHANDLER, AZ (3TV/CBS 5)Google Fiber held a groundbreaking ceremony in Chandler on Monday as the high-speed internet service provider works to deliver fiber-optic service to the city’s residents.

Earlier this year, Arizona’s Family reported that the tech giant reached a license agreement with the city of Chandler on the heels of the ISP’s planned expansions into Mesa and other U.S. cities. Google Fiber offers 1-gig and 2-gig services with symmetrical download and upload speeds.

In recent months and years, new ISPs have set their sights in metro Phoenix, including AT&T Fiber, which has actively been advertising in Mesa, where service has become available. Wyyerd Fiber was recently launched in Surprise and is working on fiber construction in Buckeye, El Mirage, Goodyear and Sun City West. Another provider, WeLink, has been increasing its service areas, which currently cover portions of Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert.

In 2014, Google tried to bring fiber to Phoenix, Tempe and Scottsdale. Although Google had secured the proper licenses, it abandoned its plans after Cox Communications filed a lawsuit against the city of Tempe, claiming city officials created a new license category more favorable than what Cox is required to hold.

Lumen (better known as CenturyLink and Quantum Fiber in selected areas) and Cox Communications, Arizona’s legacy phone and cable providers, have been working hard to win over and keep existing customers. In June, Cox increased speeds to its Valley customers, upgraded its most popular tier to 500Mbps, and increased upload speed capacity.

The top three wireless providers, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, have also launched Home 5G internet options with limited availability across metro Phoenix.

Google hopes to cover the entire city of Chandler with fiber-optic service by 2028 when it is expected to complete its rollout in Mesa.

Person infected with measles may have exposed others while dining at Phoenix-area restaurants

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — An international visitor infected with measles may have exposed others while dining at multiple locations across the Valley last month, according to the Maricopa County Department of Public Health.

On Monday, MCDPH said that the person was infected with measles while having breakfast on Jan. 27 from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. at a breakfast buffet at The Garden Grille and Bar inside the Hilton Garden Inn Chandler Downtown at 150 S. Arizona Avenue. Later that day, the person went to Twin Peaks Camelback at 2135 E. Camelback Road from 2-5 p.m. MCDPH says anyone at those locations during that time may have been exposed to measles.

The investigation is complete, and MCDPH is notifying people who may have been potentially exposed and those who may have been exposed after the person was hospitalized for symptoms of measles. “Measles is highly infectious, potentially serious, and completely preventable,” said Dr. Nick Staab, assistant medical director for MCDPH. “Anyone who may have been exposed at these locations should watch for symptoms through Feb. 17.”

Measles usually begins with a high fever, cough, runny nose or red/watery eyes, followed by a rash that starts three to five days after symptoms first appear and spreads from the forehead to other parts of the body. “We encourage residents to stay up-to-date on their vaccines to prevent spread of the disease and the potential of serious symptoms,” said Dr. Staab.

MCDPH says it can take up to 21 days after their last exposure for a person infected with measles to start showing symptoms. If you feel like you are experiencing symptoms of measles, MCDPH advises you to self-isolate and call your doctor, urgent care, or a hospital for treatment.
