Home Care Sunset, SC

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 Robert Mills House and Gardens 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 Sunset, SC is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

“Always best care was my very first home health job coming out of high school and it has truly been a experience for me. I did leave to explore and find my way in the world however in 2020 I gotten the opportunity to come back with open arms and I couldn't pass it up. This company works hard to help employees and clients. The owner miss Beth is a strong independent women that gets the job done and will help anyone that needs it. She has seen things in me that I hasn't been able to see in my self, and that is why this will be my forever employment. If you want to work somewhere where communication is key in this business, a business that cares about you and wants to see you move up in the world you need to come and work for this company. I am not just saying that because I work there now. I am saying this because I have a job that enjoy going to work each and everyday.”

“When I left my old company and went to a new one being the same thing I was, a caregiver, I was nervous. I wasn't treated the best or appreciated at all at the old company so I figured this one would be the same way but boy was I wrong. I work for a company that appreciates me and is willing to work with me through any situation so we are all on the same page. They respect me as their employee, a mother and just a person in general. Yesterday when I went to the office to pick up my check, I was given an award. The boss of our company chose ME as "Employee of the Month of September". Talking about feeling appreciated, I've only been working for them for 4 months. I cannot thank Always Best Care enough for choosing me and believing in me and my work. It's not always easy but it's worth it!????”

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Sunset, SC?

lm-check

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.

lm-check

When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.

lm-check

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.

lm-check

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 Sunset, SC
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 Ariana's Greek Restaurant or visit Mann-Simons Site, 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.

Benefits of Home Care in Sunset, SC

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 Sunset, SC, 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 Sunset, SC

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 SC'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 Sunset, SC

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 Sunset, SC 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 Sunset, SC

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 Sunset, SC

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:

  • Colonial Gardens Assisted Living & Memory Care
  • Welborn Center
  • South Carolina Association of Residential Care Homes
  • Millennium Post Acute Rehabilitation
  • Best Assisted Living Columbia - Luxury Senior Living Columbia SC & Senior Care South Carolina
  • Lakeside Place Senior Living
Home Care Sunset, SC

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 Sunset, SC

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

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:

Patrons can easily drop some serious money at Market Pavilion if they're looking to impress friends or celebrate a recent promotion. However, those pricey mojitos come with a spectacular skyline view of the Holy City and a bar-side pool. Visit for a splurge and take in the sights.

East Bay’s newest bar and restaurant, the Habit, offers rooftop views of the harbor and the unique addition of big screen televisions for watching sports in the great outdoors. Rent out a seating area so you can control which game is on the TVs. And if you’re not into football, grab a cocktail and enjoy the scenery.

Fleet Landing is one of the very few options for waterfront views on the Ravenel bridge side of downtown Charleston. The harbor views are best enjoyed at happy hour with a discounted drink and friends on the wraparound porch. The restaurant is popular with visitors looking for fried shrimp platters.

What was once the vodka-soda-stained hangout for bachelorette parties and undergrads is now a nice stop for folks looking for sophisticated cocktails and rosé by the glass. The pre-sunset crowd at the Vendue Rooftop is a quiet bunch peering at the sight of the Charleston Harbor from above. The post-sunset crew might get a little rowdier.

With some of the cheapest drinks and best views downtown, Salty Mike's is a gathering for sailors, locals, and in-the-know tourists. The no-frills watering hole sits on the Marina, so guests can watch boats go by with beer in hand.

The Boathouse is a Charleston institution. The menu reads like a throwback Southern seafood house — fried scallop platters next to crab cake appetizers and butter-poached lobster tails. Ask for a seat on the top deck for a cocktail (or two) while pondering the views of Breach Inlet.

The setting at old-school oyster shack Bowens is perfect for grabbing a fresh bushel of bivalves, and watching a Lowcountry sunset. The interiors at Bowen's are rustic, but customers are there for views of the marshland and water, along with the buckets of oysters.

Lowcountry restaurant Momo sits right on the Cooper River. Stroll around Riverfront Park while waiting for a table at brunch or after dinner. Look for seafood towers, pimento cheese plates, and deviled eggs.

The Kingstide is Daniel Island’s only waterfront restaurant with plenty of patio seating looking out to the Wando River. Aside from the views, there’s oysters, lobster rolls, smoked fish dip, plenty of cocktails, and more.

Beachgoers have a new option for seafood and Southern favorites at Islander 71 Fish House and Deck Bar. The outdoor dining area comes with views of the Intracoastal Waterway. Dishes include she-crab fries, ceviche, fried fish sandwiches, crab cakes, and more.

Tucked away at the marina on Immigration Street, off of East Bay Street, sits breezy cafe Island Cabana. Utilized by boaters going out for the day, the establishment also welcomes anyone who wants to hang out on the dock with a frosé, fried shrimp, and fish tacos. There’s also a great selection of local beers and bait if you need boat supplies.

Watch the dolphins play from the deck at Shem Creek restaurant Tavern & Table. The patio is a favorite with locals for an after-work cocktail and views of the sunset.

Order a plate of trash can nachos, a few beers, and take in the scenes of Shem Creek at Saltwater Cowboys.

The Stars Rooftop, newly renamed the Satellite Bar, offers skyline views of downtown Charleston. If it's a nice day, sit in the sun, and peer over King Street.

Perched high above the Charleston landscape, Citrus Club is the sophisticated rooftop bar of any tropical drink lover’s dreams. The 360-degree views are the best in town. Take the lobby elevator up to grab a seat and take in the view while sipping a playful libation.

Charleston Harbor Fish House has some of the best views in Mount Pleasant. The outdoor bar overlooks the Ravenel Bridge and most of the seats have views of the harbor. Spy on downtown Charleston from across the Cooper River.

(WSPA) – Any day you wake up to see the sunrise in the Carolinas, you are certainly likely to see a very beautiful sky.

Ron and Pam certainly love to explore the mountains and catch the sunrise.

“Beautiful. You know, it’s like God’s handiwork. It’s just colors exploding everywhere. It’s gorgeous.”

Other casual hikers such as Kimbo, Megan and Sue love to catch the sunset instead.

“Definitely the color. It’s great. I just like that I’m getting to see it and God created it. And it’s pretty fantastic and amazing.”

While we may take these phenomena for granted, there’s a lot that makes it so beautiful.

Clay Chaney, with the National Weather Service, said one of the biggest contributors to the spectacles is Earth’s tilt.

“With these sunrises and sunsets, it actually depends on that tilt because of course the Earth rotates, does a full rotation every 24 hours.”

We all know that the earth rotates around the sun over the course of the year.

Because of that 23-and-a-half-degree tilt, as our planet reaches different parts in that orbit, we get different amounts of daylight.

“So during the Fall, it just kind of seeps lower and lower into the horizon. And then eventually we just end up at the lowest sun angle.”

That lower angle means the light has to pass through more of the atmosphere. Meaning more molecules are interrupting the way it scatters.

“The more molecules that you have, the more color that you’re actually going to be able to give off.”

Then if you add more particles to the air, you’ll see different colors at sunrise or sunset.

“You have the Canadian wildfires. You have the Saharan dust. They’re actually able to produce a more vibrant color cause it’s eliminating those blue and violet colors.”

Typically to see the best sunrise or sunset, you’ll need to go wherever you can see the most horizon. That means you might need to go up in elevation. One of those places is Caesars Head State Park.

Pam and Ron may have caught sunrise here in the mountains, but they may check out a different venue for the day’s end.

“Sometimes we’ll go to the beach and watch the sunset on the beach. It’s beautiful sunset there. See what nature provides. It’s just unbelievable. So different than just seeing something that’s manmade.”

South Carolina woman captures video of what looks like cougar; experts weigh-in

INMAN, S.C. —

A South Carolina woman who set up her phone camera at sunset over the weekend captured more than she expected.

"I was just trying to get the sunset on video, actually," Brianna Oliver said of the images she took from a field off Asheville Highway in Inman.

When Oliver went over the time-lapsed video she took on Saturday, she discovered an animal running across the screen.

"I saw what was there, and I was like, 'What is that?' I asked my boyfriend," Oliver said.

"I’m pretty sure that’s bigger than a cat," she told him.

Oliver posted video and pictures to a neighborhood Facebook page, and the comments confirmed what she suspected: that it was a cougar or mountain lion.

"I think it’s a mountain lion, personally," she said. "It’s not the first one I’ve seen out there, but people don’t believe you because they say it’s not native here."

We showed the video to Greg Yarrow, a wildlife biologist and professor of wildlife ecology at Clemson University.

He said his first reaction was that it might be an animal that escaped Hollywild, the wild animal preserve on Hampton Road in nearby Wellford.

"These occasional sightings are usually either misidentified, or they’re animals that may have escaped or sometimes people will get kittens and raise them as pets," Yarrow said.

WYFF News 4 contacted Hollywild, and officials said all their animals were present and accounted for.

Still, Yarrow said wildlife experts are in agreement that the Eastern cougar, or mountain lion, is not found breeding or free-roaming in this area.

"Certainly, it’s interesting in terms of being able to see that (animal) roaming across the field there, but that’s pretty much where were are right now," Yarrow said. "There’s really not been any documented — at least in South Carolina — cases of cougars free-roaming."

He said the closest breeding populations of cougars are in South Florida, in the Everglades, and in the Big Cypress Swamp area.

More news (video will continue after links.)

Another interesting element to the video comes about 15 minutes or so, in real-time, after the animal runs through the area. Another animal that looks like a deer is seen to the far left, running around off-screen.

Yarrow said that although wild cats can travel a long range, the possibility that this could be one that is migrating through the area is pretty rare.

As for Oliver, she said she's just glad she wasn't out there when the cat was there. She also said she's getting support from her neighbors about the post.

"It’s just crazy how many reactions it got and how many people believe, like I do, that they’re around," she said.

Jay Butfiloski, with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, said this after looking at the video:

"There is nothing in this video that would make me think this was a big cat. There is no substantial tail, and the body appears smaller. A mountain lion should have a thick long, and black-tipped tail," he said.

Yarrow said several years ago there was a report of a cougar on Clemson’s campus.

He said one of the schools naturalists was actually able to catch up to it and discovered it was an exotic breed of dog that looked very similar to that type of body of a cougar.

"Yeah, that was almost convincing," Yarrow said. "You look at the photographs and you just can't tell."

Are you looking for a place to salsa dance in Greenville, SC? If you love salsa dancing and wish you could escape to the exotic nightlife of South Florida, you can for just the cost of a babysitter for a few hours right here in Greenville! Whether you are looking for an escape from the kids in the form of a fun date night or a family date night including the kids– we’ve got a free event you have to check out: Salsa at Sunset.

About Greenville’s Salsa at Sunset

The Salsa at Sunset event sponsored by Upstate International & Pura Alegria dance company will get you as close as you’re going to get to Calle Ocho in Miami without traveling for half a day.

This free event is held during the summer months once a month in June, July, and August. An hour-long complimentary salsa dance lesson starts at 6:15 pm and the live music starts at 7 pm plays until 10 pm. In 2021, the event moved from the plaza in front of the Peace Center to the NEW Camperdown Plaza and it’s awesome. The space is beautiful and you can grab cookies from Insomnia or ice cream at Jeni’s right there. So fun.

If there were a way to somehow import the smell of ocean air and fill the airspace in front of the Peace Center with it, you’d never know that you were in the foothills of South Carolina and not Miami.

Grab your preferred dance partner and head downtown. I couldn’t believe how many people were there dancing! Every generation was represented on the dance floor, older couples, young couples, parents on a much-needed escape & families with their little ones in tow.

The bar at CAMP is open and the live music will keep you moving. This event is family and stroller-friendly. I strongly suggest bringing an ample supply of ice water for your entire dance troupe, because you’ll need it after several hours of salsa dancing.

Salsa at Sunset 2022 Dates

How To Turn This Free Event Into The Ultimate Date Night

For women: A shoe with a smooth bottom and a heel not more than two inches is preferable (tennis shoes aren’t the best because they stick to the floor but I’ve seen women wear them and do fine). If you think Salsa dancing is something you’ll want to do often, then invest in a pair of salsa shoes. You’ll look like you just got back from Dancing With The Stars, and it will give you an extra boost of confidence on the dance floor. The Exotic Salsa shoe site is a great place to start looking.

Dresses allow you to move freely and are a good choice, just be sure to wear spandex shorts underneath if you plan to really show off your moves on the dance floor. Whatever you wear, make sure it’s lightweight and comfortable because you’ll be moving around a lot in the summer heat.

For men: Shoes with smooth bottoms are ideal as well. This isn’t the place to be sporting those Jordans. If you want to dress the part and impress your date choose linen or lightweight pants, paired with a button-up shirt. A Guayabera is what you’ll probably see on the serious salsa dancers in the crowd.

Would you like to wow the crowd at Camperdown with your Salsa skills? Grab some inexpensive lessons beforehand and when the time comes, you’ll look like you just flew in from Havana!

Can’t make it to a practice event? Just tell Alexa to play anything Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Hector Lavoe, and Fania All-Stars, then follow what your hips tell you to do. Don’t worry. Hips don’t Lie.
