The Most Reliable Senior Care to Support You and Your Loved Ones

A MESSAGE FROM THE OWNER

Welcome to Always Best Care Serving Glenview & The North Shore

LOOK NO FURTHER. If you saw that phrase on our banner above, please understand that here at Always Best Care of Glenview and the North Shore, that means we’ve got you. Whether you have been searching online for a caregiving agency, or for Senior living options, odds are that someone you love needs help. You may not know exactly what your loved one needs, or how to best support them. You may be overwhelmed and losing sleep. Should you call our office, we will talk through your situation and figure out a course of action. Even if what you need is beyond our scope of service, or if for whatever reason we cannot help you, as much as we are able, we will find you someone who can help.

My husband, Casey, and I opened our doors in 2011 to serve our community. Since that time, this agency has served hundreds of seniors and their families with respect and integrity. By providing award-winning caregiving services as well as free assisted living referral services*, we have developed strong relationships with senior living communities, hospitals, other home care agencies, and senior resources throughout the area.

We firmly believe that the professional caregivers we employ and the seniors we serve hold equal importance. Our professional caregivers are all experienced, trained, screened, bonded and insured. They are not independent contractors. They are highly valued members of this team.

Contact us today for a complimentary care consultation.*Because Always Best Care is compensated by our contracted assisted living communities, we are happy to provide our senior housing and assisted living referral services at no charge to you.

“Charmaine, the owner of Always Best Care, is amazing. Before my dad needed a caregiver, I asked Charmaine if she would meet with him to describe the types of services they provide. My dad instantly loved her. She spent a long time with him describing the services they provide but also recognizing how difficult this situation is and showing great compassion. When we needed her after he broke his hip, her agency quickly stepped into action and for months, Charmaine provided my dad with excellent caregivers and the quality of service I had hoped for. She gave my dad and my whole family peace of mind. I highly recommend Charmaine and her agency.”

TESTIMONIALS

“When my very independent Father broke his hip two years ago, we didn’t know where to turn for care for him in his two bedroom apt. He insisted that he wanted home care. We found Always Best Care. Charmaine worked with me and my sisters to provide round the clock care for our Dad. They did their level best to find the best caregivers for Dad. When something wasn’t satisfactory, Charmaine addressed the issues and found other caregivers for Dad. We found two amazing caregivers who still work for Dad two years later. We recently bought out their contracts from ABC after two years of working with them. It is so hard to find good care for your loved one. ABC has served us well and we loved the caregivers so much that we kept them as our permanent caregivers. The service is not cheap, but they are reliable, bonded and insured and you will have peace of mind as you navigate care for your loved one. Highly recommended. They care about their clients and they were always reachable if we had any problems.”

“I enjoy working here because I am known and cared for by the staff. Whenever I have had a concern regarding my employment, work dynamics, and/or my client’s care, I am listened to and respected. This is the first home care agency I’ve worked for where I’ve felt like my voice is heard. I have gotten to work with several clients and stay with them for years–continually building deep and lasting relationship with people I have come to know and love. I continue to work here because I believe we really can make a difference and provide the best care.”

TESTIMONIALS

“We have found Always Best Care and are happy with them. There was some difficulty with availability of people and scheduling. One of the caregivers made a serious mistake. However, after everything was straightened out, they have been great. For four hours, one day a week, a caregiver comes and helps my mother who has Alzheimer’s take a bath and gives her a manicure. The caregivers are good. They were conveniently located. I went and had a personal meeting with the owner of the company and thought she was very impressive. She then came to the home to meet my mother and my parents; we liked that. We thought that was professional and helpful. From then on, we have worked with a scheduler and the caregiver. I think it’s a very reliable and well-run agency, and we’re very pleased at this point with the service.”

FAQs About Our Senior Care Services

Female-Caregiver-Mobile Female-Caregiver-Desktop

Senior care services are for people who need ongoing assistance that cannot easily be provided by their family or friends. Studies show older adults prefer to live independent, non-institutionalized lives, and in-home care is a safe, effective way to provide care in the comfort of one’s own home.

The answer depends on the type of care, the location of care and the level of care that is needed. At Always Best Care, we provide a no obligation care consultation and provide information on many options for paying for home care for you and your loved one.

Our company vision is to work as a united team providing the best senior care in the world, with the broadest range of services, and the most loving and consistent care anywhere. We are dedicated to exceeding your expectations…always

Your Care Coordinator will work with you and your loved one to select the best qualified caregiver for each client. They will carefully review your care plan and try to match the right caregiver with the specific needs of each client. It is our goal and your right to make sure that you and your loved one are completely satisfied with our service and we will bend over backwards to make this happen.

Every Always Best Care location employs all their caregivers, so extensive background and reference checks are conducted. Caregivers are insured for your safety and they all receive extensive training upon being hired and on-going training to keep up with the demand of our industry. What this means for you is that you or your loved one will receive some of the best caregivers our industry has to offer.

The time frame to begin care for a senior will depend on the urgency of the need for the person and family that will be receiving care. That could mean care could start within hours, days or weeks, depending on your needs.

How people pay for senior care depends on their financial situation and the kinds of services they receive. Often, people must rely on a variety of payment sources, including personal funds, government programs, and private financing options.

The short answer is no. Traditional Medicare does not pay for 24-hour-a-day care at your home, meals delivered to your home, home tasks that aren’t related to your care plan, custodial care, or personal care that helps you with activities of daily living (ADLs) if that’s the only care you need. There may be some exceptions; we’ll be happy to talk you through what is possible for your situation.

Home-based care is part of the Veterans Administration’s medical benefits. All veterans are eligible if they meet the clinical need and it is available.
