By Wednesday morning she had people lined up to assist in covering my father's care. Channing also went above and beyond by contacting facilities and homes to help me look into care for my father. Let me explain that she didn't give me a number-she called them on my behalf. Channing could tell I was overwhelmed and did anything she could to help. This is a amazing team of care givers that really cares. I have loved the women they sent out to care for my father. Can't say enough!!!!! J. Wilkins.”

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

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

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

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

Aging in Place: The Preferred Choice for Most Seniors

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

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

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


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

Healthy Living
Healthy Living

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


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

Cost and Convenience
Cost and Convenience

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

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

Empowers Seniors

Affordable Care Plans

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

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

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

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

Veteran's Benefits
Veteran's Benefits

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

Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-Term Care Insurance

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

Private Insurance
Private Insurance

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

Life Insurance

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 Leasburg, NC

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

Compassionate Care. Trusted Caregivers

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

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

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

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

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

 Caregivers Leasburg, NC

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

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

An assessment of your senior loved one


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


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


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

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

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

LEASBURG, N.C. (WNCN) – A Person County family said someone poisoned their dog, leaving them terrified. Julie Reynolds said her German shepherd, Lucy, loved everyone she met.

“She was so friendly,” she recalled. “Never harmed a soul.”

“She just puts her head on your leg, and she just looks at you, waiting for you to just love on her,” added Julie’s daughter, Kayleigh.

The family’s two dogs, Lucy and Chloe, have kennels on their property in Person County. On April 18, the family said they saw something alarming in Chloe’s bowl.

“Her water bowl was full of what appeared to be antifreeze,” Julie said. “From that point forward, we stopped putting bowls outside.”

They were concerned, but thought they were doing enough to protect their pups. Then, on April 30, Lucy got sick.

“She just kind of fell onto the floor and stayed there. And she was just breathing real hard and whining,” remembered Kayleigh.

After hearing her symptoms, they said the vet asked if the dog could have been around antifreeze. The substance is poisonous to dogs

It was too late for Lucy. There was nothing the vet could do.

“They were just trying to wait until we could all be there so we could tell her goodbye,” Julie said through tears.

The next night, Kayleigh said someone vandalized two vehicles in their driveway and another truck a couple of miles down the road. She said there was sugar and antifreeze in the gas tanks.

Kayleigh searched their property.

“I found the three cups out in the woods that were partially covered by pine needles and buried into the ground so just the top part was up,” she said. She said she also found an antifreeze container and a funnel.

Now Kayleigh said she’s scared to let her dog Chloe out without a leash. The family isn’t even comfortable going outside in their own yard. They hope investigators will find whoever did this.

“I want justice for Lucy,” Julie said. “There’s nothing we can do to bring her back but I would like for her to have justice.”

The Reynolds family said friends have offered a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone with information can call the Person County Sheriff’s Office at 336-597-0500.

Like any pastor, LaTonya McIver Penny is busy.

But this minister’s calendar goes above and beyond busy.

In addition to leading New Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Roxboro, N.C., and all that entails, Penny is a mother of two and runs a non-profit advocating for the respectful and compassionate treatment of children with disabilities in churches.

“The deficiency in many churches is they don’t know what to do with children who are different,” she said.

Penny also is a bi-vocational minister, overseeing the day-to-day operations of a local domestic violence agency and shelter.

“That also is a calling. It is a ministry,” she said.

And like other women pastors, Penny confronted her share of opposition from those who say females should not be pastors.

Penny spared a few minutes between a hastily eaten Chick-fil-A lunch and her next appointment to share her experiences with Baptist News Global.

Was church a big part of your life growing up?

Yes, very much so. I grew up in a small church, Mill Hill Baptist Church in Leasburg, N.C. It was a good old Missionary Baptist church. And it was foundational to me. I was in church every Sunday. That is part of what we did as a family.

When did you hear a calling to ministry?

I knew when I was younger, in my teen years, but it was something that I couldn’t put my finger on. … When I was 21, I realized I was called into ministry.

What kind of guidance did you get from other ministers at the time?

When I went to my particular pastor, I was directed that women just don’t preach. Others said maybe I was called into education or called to teach. I got a master’s in education because I was misdirected. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t my calling. I knew it was preaching.

When were you ordained?

I was licensed in ministry in 2009. That was before ordination. …. When I was at Wake Forest [School of Divinity], I changed my membership to Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem where I got solid biblical teaching and was taught that women could be pastors. … When I sat before the ordination council in December 2014, it was a Friday. I was ordained that Saturday, and I became the pastor on Sunday at New Mount Zion, where I am now. And it was my birthday that Monday. I had quite a busy weekend.

How did you feel when you were told women couldn’t preach?

I was confused. I knew God was calling me to ministry and to preach and to teach; however, I had never witnessed a woman preach before. As I was getting my masters in teaching … I finally saw a woman preaching. She was a senior pastor, and she was amazing.

Have you experienced any pushback being a female pastor from your congregation or the local community?

For my congregation, it is a badge of honor. The church is 117 years old and in the city of Roxboro. I am the first African-American female elected pastor. For some it was a stretch of faith: “Can she lead and be biblically sound?” The more I love and teach them, the more they have come to embrace it. … In the community, nothing has ever been said to me, but it has happened to members of my congregation. Usually, a male speaking to another male, saying it’s against the Bible and “Y’all are going to hell.” My people will say, “Show me where she can’t be a preacher.”

You said you are the first elected black female pastor. Are there some who are not elected?

Yes. There have been women who have started their own churches but not elected to existing churches.

What does being a bi-vocational minister look like for you?

I am the executive director of Family Abuse Services of Alamance County, Inc. It is a domestic violence agency. We do domestic violence prevention and support for victims. We also operate a shelter. We are a nonprofit. … For me, it is a ministry. I may not be saying the word ‘God,’ but I am helping people be their best selves and to empower women and men to love themselves. It’s a ministry — you just don’t get to use the Bible.

What difficulties or blessings does being bi-vocational present to you?

I work full-time. … I may not be available for things I wish I could be available for, but it’s flexible. Because I am the executive director, I control my schedule. … I do Bible study every Wednesday night. I do hospital visits. I just carry a laptop and work from the hospital.
