Home Care Gilbert, 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 Downtown Gilbert Water Tower 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 Gilbert, AZ is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

To make sure our senior clients receive the best care possible, we pair them with compassionate caregivers who understand their unique needs. That way, they may provide care accordingly without compromising their wellbeing.

The Always Best Care difference lies in life's little moments - where compassionate care and trustworthy experience come together to help seniors live a fruitful, healthy life.

“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)”

Kevin J.

“We feel blessed to have found Marcy and her amazing group of caregivers to assist our Mom in remaining at home through the end of her life. Everyone involved in her care was extremely compassionate, understanding and flexible. It was so nice to have Marcy come out each time a new caregiver was assigned in order to introduce them to Mom. I always felt comfortable and confident in the quality of her care and safety.”

Shannon L.

“Our caregiver Marcy, with Always Best Care, is very attentive to our needs and exceeds our expectations! She is always willing to do whatever it takes to provide excellent care for my 90-year-old mother!”

Thomas M.

“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 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~~”

The owner, Marcy, was very responsive, met with me prior to my surgery to personally go over my needs, and the caregivers she sent to help me were professional and caring. I would highly recommend Always Best Care to everyone.”

Jim M.

“Our family needed to get my disabled brother in an assisted living environment quickly as his care giver's health (our mother) was in decline. Always Best Care came to our rescue after finding out the needs and type of care needed to get our brother into a safe environment. We spent many hours looking and found the right place for him all in one day. Always Best Care also gave us resources to get additional financial help that my brother could qualified for. These amazing women helped us in a very stressful and emotional time when we were under extreme pressure and they made it as easy as possible considering the situation. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”

Emilie G.

“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.”

Ralph G.

“Our care giver from Always Best Care Senior Services is doing a fine job getting my spouse to cooperate on personal care, etc. and working with her for mental and physical exercises.”

Lisa R.

“Marcy and her team were fabulous!! Marcy always introduced new caregivers and made sure my mom was comfortable They took such great care of my mother! She was very happy!! I would totally recommend using them for your loved ones.”

Nancy W.

“I would recommend Always Best Care to anyone in my situation! They are very professional and very knowledgeable. More importantly they understand what you’re doing through and many times you feel like you are doing it all along and they really make you feel like have someone to lean on and someone to support you. I cried several times during my experience with them because I struggled with not sure what I was doing was the right decision and they were truly a friend to me and a shoulder to cry on, literally! They will never know just how grateful I am to them and what a big difference there are making in this world. May God richly bless them all!”

Renata J.

“Very good support for the family during a very stressful time.”

Marilyn M.

“I contacted the owner of Always Best Care in Chandler, AZ, Marcy Stenger, regarding an assignment for my MSW program. I needed assistance in collecting information on resources available for older adults. Marcy took time out of her day to answer all of my questions when I has been turned down by others. She is a wealth of knowledge and displays a tremendous amount of passion in the work that she does. I would highly recommend her for support needed with your loved one, she definitely would take the time to ensure all of your concerns and questions are addressed.”

Jacquelyn P.

“Always Best Care Senior Services was top notch from the RN caseworker to the aides. We used them for our 90 year-old parents for some respite care. My parents had nothing but good things to say about their caregiver. She was reliable, kind, and caring and did a lot of extras that were appreciated. Thank you for all your help.”

April P.

“I recently had a situation with the wedding of my daughter and needed a caregiver. My daughter's father is disabled and needed extra assistance to look his best and get to the wedding. Always Best Care was there to help. They were understanding, professional and on time. Since then I have needed Always Best Care's services for my 93-year-old Aunt. My Aunt has loved the friendly, cheerful company and the help has been priceless. Trust is a huge factor with having someone come into out home. I trust Always Best Care. They have done an excellent job with management, communication, and consistent high-quality care.”

Helen T.

“The day came when my mom needed extra help as she is older and has trouble doing the simple things we all take for granite. Like taking a shower without the fear of falling, making a lunch, cleaning up around the house and laundry and much more. I was at a lose of what to do for help as I could not keep up with it all as I work full time, kids, family and live across town. Always Best Care Senior Services provided Marcy who was a referral and ended up being the best thing that could have happened. My mom did not want help at first but over time she now is a big, big fan! My mom's lifestyle and attitude has improved and she is happy and likes the staff that helps her. Thank you so much to Marcy and team for how much they care and help my mom.”

David A.

“I would recommend this place to anyone! I worked for them and it was a blessing! Marcy has the biggest heart, and is willing to do anything to help her clients and her worker. She makes you feel like family. If you are looking for someone to help with your family or you are looking for a job you won’t regret picking Always Best Care! If I was still in Phoenix I’d still be working here! I miss it dearly.”

Marisol S.


Andrea G.

“I would like to recommend Marcy as a resource for the elderly and disabled. She was gracious and patient while working with my sister to find long term housing for here. I would like to share a story. I was not experienced with housing, agencies, financial services and regulations for seniors and disables citizens. It is a web of regulatory compliance and agencies. Without Marcy I would still be searching and most likely would have needed assistance for myself. The experience is overwhelming and without someone that is honest, compassionate as well as resourceful as Marcy; I would have never made it through the process. Although my sister has sense expired, Marcy was there from the beginning and still checks on me to this day. She is a resource, I never want to be without.”

Mariette J.

“Our family needed to get my disabled brother in an assisted living environment quickly as his family caregiver's health (our mother) was in decline. Always Best Care came to our rescue after finding out the needs and type of care needed to get our brother into a safe environment. We spent many hours looking and found the right place for him all in one day. Always Best Care also gave us resources to get additional financial help that my brother could qualify for. These amazing women helped us in a very stressful and emotional time when we were under extreme pressure and they made it as easy as possible considering the situation.”


“It is clear the love and care Marcy takes of her clients. She pays close attention to detail to make sure their needs are more than met. As owner of Canyon Creek Assisted Living & Memory Care the residents she has referred to us and the follow through she provides is more than we could hope for. Thank you!”

Heather M.

“Marcy, and her company, has been amazing to me and my mother in law. Marcy is very compassionate of the work, she does... she goes above and beyond, the needs of others. She has found Care for us, in our time of need, and we are appreciated the services render. Wouldn't ask for a better, company. ????”

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


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.


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 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 Gilbert, 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 Bourbon & Bones Chophouse or visit HD SOUTH - Home of the Gilbert Museum, 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 Gilbert, 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 Gilbert, 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 Gilbert, 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 Gilbert, 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 Gilbert, 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 Gilbert, 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:

  • The Oaks Assisted Living & Memory Care
  • BeeHive Homes Assisted Living
  • American Groves Senior Living
  • Savanna House
  • American Orchards
  • Eternal Spring of Gilbert
Home Care Gilbert, 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.

 In-Home Care Gilbert, AZ

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 Always Best Care 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:

A discussion of your needs and how our trained caregivers can offer assistance in the most effective way


A draft of your care plan, which includes highly detailed notes and a framework for the care that you or your senior will receive


Discuss payment options and help coordinate billing with your insurance provider


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.

What is the best internet provider in Gilbert?

Cox is the best internet service provider in Gilbert, offering the fastest speeds and broadest coverage in the area. Prices are on the high side, and most plans increase after two years, but equipment is included in the monthly price.

If you can get it, Quantum Fiber has the cheapest internet in Gilbert, with plans starting at just $30 per month. Unfortunately, only around one in 10 households have access to it. T-Mobile Home Internet is another good backup option, offering wireless internet with speeds up to 245Mbps and a price-lock guarantee.

Our methodology

CNET considers speeds, pricing, customer service and overall value to recommend the best internet service in Gilbert across several categories. Our evaluation includes referencing a proprietary database built over years of reviewing internet services. We validate that against provider information by spot-checking local addresses for service availability. We also do a close read of providers' terms and conditions and, when needed, will call ISPs to verify the details.

Despite our efforts to find the most recent and accurate information, our process has some limitations you should know about. Pricing and speed data are variable: Certain addresses may qualify for different service tiers, and monthly costs may vary, even within a city. The best way to identify your options is to plug your address into a provider's website.

Also, the prices, speed and other information listed above and in the provider cards below may differ from what we found in our research. The cards display the full range of a provider's pricing and speed across the US, according to our database of plan information provided directly by ISPs. At the same time, the text is specific to what's available in Gilbert. The prices referenced within this article's text come from our research and include applicable discounts for setting up automatic payments each month -- a standard industry offering. Other discounts and promotions might also be available for things like signing a term contract or bundling with multiple services.

Best internet provider in Gilbert, AZ

Our take - Cox is the best internet provider in Gilbert, almost by default; it’s the only cable or fiber widely available in the city. Cox offers a good variety of plans, but the one thing they all have in common is low upload speeds, which could be an issue if you do a lot of online gaming or videoconferencing. Prices are also on the higher side, and most plans increase after two years.

How CNET chose the best internet providers in Gilbert

Internet service providers are numerous and regional. Unlike the latest smartphone, laptop, router or kitchen tool, it’s impractical to personally test every ISP in a given city. What’s our approach? We start by researching the pricing, availability and speed information drawing on our own historical ISP data, the provider sites and mapping information from the Federal Communications Commission at

It doesn’t end there. We go to the FCC’s website to check our data and ensure we consider every ISP that provides service in an area. We also input local addresses on provider websites to find specific options for residents. We look at sources, including the American Customer Satisfaction Index and J.D. Power, to evaluate how happy customers are with an ISP’s service. ISP plans and prices are subject to frequent changes; all information provided is accurate as of the time of publication.

Once we have this localized information, we ask three main questions:

While the answer to those questions is often layered and complex, the providers who come closest to “yes” on all three are the ones we recommend. When it comes to selecting the cheapest internet service, we look for the plans with the lowest monthly fee, although we also factor in things like price increases, equipment fees and contracts. Choosing the fastest internet service is relatively straightforward. We look at advertised upload and download speeds, and also take into account real-world speed data from sources like Ookla and FCC reports.

GILBERT, AZ — Shaquille O'Neal surprised several members of the Valley this Sunday with a visit to his Gilbert restaurant “Big Chicken.”

The restaurant is a sponsor of several basketball teams in the Valley. On Sunday, some of the players got to meet O'Neal himself.

"I like that they sponsor the six basketball teams. That's awesome," O'Neal said.

When asked what it means to him to help out local teams, O'Neal said, "I was always taught, growing up in a military family, just do the right thing. I don't want credit for it."

He continued: "There's a lot of people that are generous — they don't get the credit. So if they don't get the credit, I don't really want credit for doing stuff that you're supposed to do."

To see more of ABC15's one-on-one with O'Neal, watch the video in the player above.


In an interview with ABC15 in 2022, Steve Christensen confirmed that he and Reid Richards are the franchisees for the state and have agreed to open at least 12 Big Chicken locations in Arizona over the next couple of years.

Fast forward to October 2023, Christensen confirmed to ABC15 that the plan is to open at least two locations per year and to have more storefronts throughout the Valley.

“We're also looking at locations in Queen Creek. We're looking at Mesa, we're looking at Chandler, we're looking in the West Valley as well in Peoria and Surprise. We plan to dot all over the state...we figure that we can probably get more than 12 locations,” said Christensen.

The latest update on the fast-casual restaurant is that it’s headed to Footprint Center. When will it open? That is still to be announced.

MENU RECAP“So, a lot of the menu [has] come from ideas that Shaq came about with his mom. They created some of the recipes together...also with the guys in the kitchen that, you know, develop the menu,” shared Christensen.

“The big sandwiches [we have] are ‘The Ultimate' - it has mac-and-cheese on it and a big chicken patty to go along with it, along with crispy onion strings. We have a sandwich also called the ‘Shaq Attack’ which has jalapeño slaw on top of it. All the patties are at least five ounces, which is a pretty big size compared to most places,” explained Christensen.

Arizona women’s basketball ends 4-game skid with complete performance against California

What happens when you take 16.7 points per game out of your lineup? That was the question facing the Arizona Wildcats against California on Friday night. The answer turned out to be winning 66-55 with a complete team game.

“I was feeling like it was more together today,” said forward Esmery Martinez. “We were helping more each other. We were communicating more. We were ready to win the game.”

Arizona’s starting lineup included usual starters Martinez, Jada Williams, Breya Cunningham, and Helena Pueyo, but they were not joined by leading scorer Kailyn Gilbert, who was held out by head coach Adia Barnes. Instead, freshman Skylar Jones got the first start of her career.

“[Gilbert] wasn’t available today,” Barnes said. “So just the decision not to play her...I could have tried to possibly but it would just risk injury.”

It was a nerve-racking experience for Jones. She found out at practice that she would start. She had to find out a way to get over her nervousness before the game.

“I went to sleep,” Jones said. “I had to sleep it off. I took a quick little 45-minute nap.”

Those nerves were still there early on. Jones had a steal and an assist to start Arizona’s scoring, but she followed that up with some mistakes.

“I was actually frustrated at the beginning of the game because I had two turnovers that I shouldn’t have had early,” Jones said. “And Es knows I was frustrated with it and she told me to snap out of it, get it out of my head, and then the rest of the game was smooth from there.”

The changes didn’t stop with Jones’ start. Junior guard Courtney Blakely played 26 minutes, the most since she transferred to Arizona in the offseason. Her teammates were impressed by her contributions.

“I love Courtney,” Jones said. “Courtney’s just a dog...and she played like it.”

Late in the game, Blakely dove on the floor for a loose ball. She appeared injured and stayed down for an extended period of time. Martinez picked her up.

“She’s the type of player that I don’t want to play against,” Martinez said said with a laugh. “She’s annoying.”

Barnes was also impressed by the effort of Blakely, whose confidence she has been concerned with in recent weeks.

“I thought Courtney played the way Courtney can play today,” Barnes said. “She didn’t take as many risks defensively. I thought she was super tenacious on the ball. Great energy. Good finishes. Some brilliant plays that she kind of bobbed and weaved—it reminded me of Aari [McDonald]—through defenses and just found a way to make the layups. I thought she jump-stopped and finished strong, and that’s something we were working on in practice because before she would just go up and miss. But you saw her jump-stopping and gathering—and she can jump. I thought she was really good tonight.”

With just seven players, the Wildcats leaned on Martinez, who scored a season high 20 points. She added seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals. More importantly, she had just one turnover, something she has struggled with of late.

“To be honest, I was feeling in the last couple games, I was...rushing too much, I was trying to play real fast,” Martinez said. “And because I was watching film, I was thinking that’s not my game. So I stopped. Tried to sit down and control and see what they give to me. So I just feel as though I’ve realized my own way and play my own way.”

It wasn’t just Martinez, though. Williams scored 13, nine of which came from the free throw line. She also had two rebounds, two assists, and one steal.

“Everybody scored and contributed,” Barnes said. “That’s what you want. You don’t want a big imbalance. You won’t win games like that. You may score some points but you’re not going to win like that.”

Each of the seven players scored at least six points each. The team outrebounded Cal 29-25. They had 13 assists to the Bears’ 11 and 12 steals to the opponent’s six.

On defense, Arizona held Cal to 34.9 percent shooting, five percent below its season average. The Bears ended with 13.8 points fewer than their season average.

“I think we also came in the locker room talked about how we want to win...we want to come together,” Jones said. “We need to do this. We need to get out of this losing streak. And that’s what we did today. What we did, we stood on business. That’s what we put on the locker room. and we stood on business and stood on 10 toes and we all came together.”
