How does In-home Senior Care in Roxboro, 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 Roxboro, 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 Roxboro, 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

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.

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 Roxboro,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.

Like several other businesses getting new life, Green's Jewelers on Main Street in Roxboro is undergoing a significant renovation that will restore the building to its original look from the early 1900s.

With more businesses flocking to the area, Green's Jewelers co-owner Lauren Coates felt that after years of waiting and saving, this was the right time to restore the building's sparkle.

"So, by the time the big boom did happen here with all the businesses open and everything, we wanted to have our change already set up." Coates said.

Coates discussed the growth she’s seen in the area.

"Uptown Roxboro is growing, it's here to stay,” Coates said. “It's not dying, and it's really just beginning.”

The contractor doing that work is also new to Roxboro, and this is one of his projects on Main Street.

"My own family has bought some property as well at 118 [Main Street],” developer Allen Downey said. “We've gutted that, we're putting in apartments upstairs, commercial space on the first floor and in the basement."

Downey tells WRAL News that this is the next hotspot for growth in the Triangle.

"People are moving this way, and I think we're on the forefront of this thing really blowing up," Downey said.

Vanessa Dorazio owns OD On Coffee, which opened last week. She says the people in Person County made this the right spot for her.

"I just decided it was something I wanted to do for about 15 years. The opportunity opened up where I was able to come do this here in the town that we've lived in for a lot of years," Dorazio said. "The support that they give for the new businesses here are absolutely amazing, and I knew that we would succeed here being in uptown Roxboro."

Dorazio also mentioned the area’s growth.

For Coates, the changes on Main Street and the revitalization of Uptown Roxboro are about more than the infrastructure.

"The building is really like an extension of my family,” Coates said. “This business has been in my family in Roxboro for more than 100 years.”

Coates’ business has been in her family since 1895, and in Roxboro since 1918; they were across the street and bought the current building in the 70s; the existing building was a bank.

The indoor and outdoor remodel of Green's Jewelers and the construction of new apartments are expected to be complete in the next couple of months.

‘Served its purpose’: Duke Energy’s coal power plants will retire as part of N.C’s carbon plan

PERSON COUNTY, N.C. — Environmental activists are reacting to the state’s first ever “carbon plan.” It was issued right before the new year, and the goal is to find ways for the electric sector, specifically Duke Energy, to reduce carbon emissions.

What You Need To Know

There are many steps in this plan, including upgrading facilities to connect new solar power generation as well as increasing energy efficiency. However, perhaps one of the most significant steps is retiring Duke’s last coal fired power plants in the next 12 years.

The Roxboro coal fired power plant has been supplying electricity for 57 years, resulting in millions of tons of coal ash, and chances are, North Carolinians have probably never seen it in person.

“This is the site of the Roxboro Steam Station, so it's Duke Energy's largest coal fired power plant in North Carolina,” David Rogers, the southeast deputy regional director of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign, said. “I don't think people really realize where their power comes from, and I think if people came out and saw the impact on the land and what's going into the air, they'd be much more likely to actually want to take action and come to the table to find solutions.”

The Sierra Club is one organization that provided input on the state’s first ever carbon plan.

“If you would have asked me like five years ago that North Carolina would be considering reducing carbon emissions by 70% by 2030 and getting to net zero by 2050, I wouldn't have believed you,” Rogers said.

To meet those goals, set by the state’s Utilities Commission, Duke Energy will have to close its remaining coal fired power plants by 2035.

“While this power plant has served its purpose, it's, you know, it's time to move in a new direction,” Rogers said.

Rogers believes this plan is a good start but also says it doesn’t accelerate the deployment of renewable sources of energy or prevent Duke from building new gas facilities.

“One of our biggest concerns is that if that we continue to expand our reliance on fossil gas, we're going to have a bunch of stranded assets that we just won't be able to utilize for the entire life span of them because we have to be net zero by 2050. And that's going to mean the customers are going to be paying for power plants that aren't going to be used in the future,” Rogers said.

Rogers also says one thing that needs to be addressed is how Person County may be impacted since it relies on tax money from the Roxboro plant.

“We need to figure out a way to help those communities, like here in Person County, transition in a way so that they can continue to thrive. But we've got to figure out a way to do it that doesn't cost people lives, which is what power plants do,” Rogers said.

In response to this first plan, Duke Energy released a statement saying, “We believe this is a constructive outcome that advances our clean energy transition, supporting a diverse, ‘all of the above’ approach that is essential for long-term resource planning. We’ve already made incredible progress, retiring two-thirds of our aging coal plants in North Carolina and South Carolina and reducing emissions by more than 40% since 2005 – we will continue this ongoing work of lowering carbon emissions to reduce risk for our customers while balancing affordability and reliability.”

The state’s Utilities Commission is required to review and adjust the carbon plan every two years.
