Welcome to Always Best Care Serving The Grand Strand

Always Best Care combines national strength and standards with local accessibility and personal service. Nate Rhodes, the Owner of Always Best Care Grand Strand, has operated Always Best Care in the Midlands since 2011. In 2017, Nate decided to open a second location in the Grand Strand. Always Best Care of the Midlands is A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). In addition to being licensed by DHEC, we are bonded and insured and our caregivers are thoroughly screened, tested, trained, and must pass background checks and drug screens in order to provide the safest and highest level of in-home care for your loved ones. We have a 2 hour minimum but also offer a daily rate for those who need round the clock care.

Our goal is to customize our services to meet your needs by creating a custom care plan for each individual and delivering the care you need when you need it.

“Lisa helped my family understand the best options for my parents and the resources available. She has great contacts and helped guide us thru the process. We received wonderful service. Thanks!”

Amy R.

“Always Best Care has been a lifesaver for our family. We have worked with them twice, both in emergency situations and they have treated us as if we were their only clients. Within an hour of our first call, we had paperwork completed and a caregiver on the way – and that was a holiday weekend. When the second emergency occurred, we knew exactly who to contact. We truly appreciate everything that Lisa, Melissa and the entire team have done for our family.”

Karen C.

“Thank you for the care you gave to my dad. He did not have any family living close to him. My sister and I were relived to know he was well taken care of. The caregivers truly care about your loved ones.”

“I am a past client of this provider Always Best Care was just absolutely wonderful. I needed to qualify people who could deal with my sister with brain cancer. My sister would throw people in and out of her house; it was crazy. She died on December 5th. Always Best Care sent incredible people. I don't know where they came from, but they had one girl who was the only person my sister never attempted to throw out of the house. I'd never hear one bad word about this woman who was actually pulling double shifts at the end because my sister liked her so much. For some reason, this woman understood my sister and brain cancer. Brain cancer is hard to deal with because people could be pretty mean and abusive and they don't know what they're doing really. My sister was also going blind at the same time. It was not easy. I just wanted to say what wonderful care we received from Always Best Care. It was amazing. They were just coming and being there. My sister was crazy, and she didn't want anybody overnight, until she finally let me have someone come in overnight. On that night, she died. She got to die in her home, which is what I'm trying to do because that too was the most important thing of all. Always Best Care was able to staff at short notice and send really good people. I was impressed, and I would highly recommend them. They would help my sister get to the bathroom. She weighed 70 pounds when she died, but she was still able to walk. She had cancers on both her femurs, and her blood pressure was 80/47. They just helped with everything, like fixing her small meals, fixing coffee, and talking to her if she wanted to talk or not talking to her if she didn't want to talk. They were just very great with their help. My sister had brain cancer and she was belligerent. Always Best Care would find people within their staff. Also, it didn't take them long, I didn't have to wait. We had letters from others saying they don't have staff right now. With Always Best Care, I did it over the phone with a woman who was a Godsend. I think the caregiver was sent almost the first day and was there every day except on the weekend when they sent someone else. That person seemed to work out OK, too, which amazed me. For some reason, these people knew how to appease someone who is really crazy. It was the cancer; it was in my sister's head. You have to be tough-skinned and just realize that this is the disease talking to you and not a person. They were able to do that, and I feel very blessed.”


“I love working for this company.”

Stephanie U.

“I used this nursing service for my cousin Pat who had cancer. I can not express the level of care and compassion that was shown for her. The nurses felt like family! Especially Alicia. You treated my cousin as if she was your family and I can’t thank you enough for that. You not only took care of her but us also. I would recommend this service 100%! We only used them for 1 month as my cousin passed quickly. I d not have a single negative remark. Thank you Chuck! Your nurses are amazing.”

Seema T.

“I love being able to work with this company, the owners are great people and support me daily! We have many calls to work on performance and continue to grow and learn!”

FAQs About Our Senior Care Services

Female-Caregiver-Mobile Female-Caregiver-Desktop

It’s becoming more and more common for families to live far apart from each other, and leaving an elderly relative alone at home can be a major source of anxiety if you’re not nearby. Always Best Care provides the reassurance you need that your loved ones are safe and happy, with a compassionate caregiver available in case of an emergency. We’ll help them handle their daily tasks so that you can manage your own life with confidence and peace of mind. In addition, home care is often considered a healthier and more affordable option for families when compared to long-term nursing facilities.

Choosing an in-home senior care provider can be a daunting task. However, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind. First, ask your friends and family for recommendations. If you’re unable to get any suggestions, search for local and state organizations that recognize the best providers in the industry. Doing so can help narrow down a shortlist of home care agencies. Next, set up meetings with your top choices and ensure that they meet your criteria. Don’t forget to ask your senior for their opinion, too. Doing so will help you make an informed home care decision.

When hiring an in-home care provider, it’s important to ensure that they are insured to protect you and your loved one. Always Best Care not only provides our clients with insurance coverage but also Worker’s Compensation. That way, in the unlikely event that an accident occurs while a caregiver is working in your loved one’s home, you are protected against any claims or damages. These protections not only benefit you and your loved one, but also directly benefit our caregivers, enabling us to attract some of the most skilled and compassionate individuals for Home Care in Grand Strand.

In the mid-90s, Always Best Care founder Michael Newman grew frustrated by the lack of resources available for seniors in his community. That frustration helped him shape a vision: to create a home care company that would provide trusted care, compassionate support, and professional advice for seniors and their loved ones. In 1996, Michael channeled his frustration into founding Always Best Care, which has since become one of the nation’s leading providers of in-home care for seniors. Today, people with passion continue to make Always Best Care what it is today. While times may change, our company’s commitment to compassionate home care will always remain the same.

To provide the best home care in Grand Strand, we believe that it’s crucial for seniors and their caregivers to build a strong relationship that is fortified with trust. Without it, all parties can suffer. However, at Always Best Care, our caregivers are allowed requested vacations. There may also be times when caregivers become ill. In such cases, a substitute caregiver takes responsibility for your loved one’s care. We inform the substitute caregiver about all your loved one’s likes and dislikes to minimize disruptions. If additional care is required in the morning, afternoon, and evening, we will do our best to accommodate.

We understand that many seniors can lead mostly independent lives, but occasionally they may need assistance. At Always Best Care, we’re thrilled when we can schedule a caregiver in a very short turnaround. That’s why we’re happy to offer part-time in-home care for seniors in Grand Strand. Our team of compassionate caregivers can be `available to assist your senior loved one morning, noon, and night.

Our home care providers in Grand Strand can assist with a wide range of services to help your senior live a fulfilling, independent life at home. Some of our most requested home care services include the following:

• Light Housekeeping
• Medication Reminders
• Community Activity Escorts
• Companionship
• Meal Prep
• Nutrition Monitoring
• Incontinence Care
• Transportation and Errand Running
• Dressing and Grooming

Contact our Always Best Care office today to learn more about the additional home care services we offer.

We believe that safety is one of the most important aspects of home care in Grand Strand. As such, we train our caregivers to assess your senior loved one’s home to identify any potential hazards that could lead to accidents. Before providing in-home care services, we will perform a safety assessment of your loved one’s property to identify ways to make their home safer. This may include introducing grab rails in hallways or showers or making other small changes. To ensure ongoing safety measures are met, your caregiver will continue to monitor your senior’s mobility and recommend any necessary equipment or technology to make their life easier and safer.

Yes. We understand that, with time, a senior’s home care needs can change. If they do, your Care Coordinator will be there to re-evaluate and adjust your non-medical home care services in Grand Strand as needed.

Our senior home care providers in Grand Strand are dedicated to delivering compassionate, exceptional care. That dedication often translates to specialized training and preferred areas of focus. Please don’t hesitate to inform us of any unique health needs or requirements your loved one has during your care consultation with Always Best Care.
