Home Care Jensen Beach, FL

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 Stuart Welcome Arch 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 Jensen Beach, FL is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Jensen Beach, FL?


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.


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 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 Jensen Beach, FL
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 Peter's Steak House or visit Jensen Beach Causeway Park, 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 Jensen Beach, FL

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 Jensen Beach, FL, 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 Jensen Beach, FL

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 FL'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 Jensen Beach, FL

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 Jensen Beach, FL 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 Jensen Beach, FL

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 Jensen Beach, FL

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:

  • Grand Oaks of Jensen Beach
  • Brookdale Jensen Beach
  • The Cabana at Jensen Dunes
  • Villa Assumpta
  • HarborChase of Stuart
Home Care Jensen Beach, FL

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.

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 Always Best Care 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:

A discussion of your needs and how our trained caregivers can offer assistance in the most effective way


A draft of your care plan, which includes highly detailed notes and a framework for the care that you or your senior will receive


Discuss payment options and help coordinate billing with your insurance provider


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.

Nick Lovensen Alincy went missing shortly before 7 a.m. Monday.

Alincy and his girlfriend went to take photographs at Sea Turtle Beach but after venturing into the water multiple times, he was pulled underwater.

"Went into the water, swam for a little while, came back out, went back into the water. And unfortunately, the second time he went back out, he disappeared," Chief Deputy John Budensiek of the Martin County Sheriff's Office said.

Eyewitnesses also reported seeing him farther down the beach before he vanished beneath the waves.

A large-scale search operation involving divers, rescue boats, and the sheriff's office helicopter was in for more than 24 hours.

However, given the duration of his disappearance and the expanding search area, authorities transitioned from a rescue mission to a recovery operation Monday afternoon.

Sea Turtle Beach and the beaches to the south have been marked with double red flags, indicating dangerous conditions.

Alincy's body was recovered shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday, just south of Bathtub Beach, about five miles where he went into the water.

JENSEN BEACH, Fla. — The Martin County Sheriff's Office said Monday afternoon that the intense search for a missing 17-year-old boy, who disappeared after getting caught in a rip current, has become a "search and recovery" mission.

Martin County Fire Rescue said Nick Lovensen Alincy, a Fort Pierce resident who attends St. Lucie West Centennial High School, was reported missing just before 7 a.m.

The teen entered the water near the 4300 block of Northeast Ocean Boulevard in Jensen Beach, although it's unclear what time he went in.

WATCH: Chopper 5 video of search for missing swimmer

The Martin County Sheriff's Office said that, according to a witness, it appeared that Alincy got caught in a rip current during an early morning swim. The current pulled him farther out into the water, the sheriff's office said.

"It goes from a shallow shelf to a drop-off," Chief Deputy John Budensiek of the Martin County Sheriff's Office said. "So, if you're not a strong swimmer, rip current or not, you could be in big trouble out here."

Marine and aviation units, a dive team, and road patrol deputies and detectives from the Martin County Sheriff's Office, along with Martin County Fire Rescue, the U.S. Coast Guard and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are now searching for Alincy.

Fire rescue crews had special dive teams doing a parallel line search, allowing them to use the current and float with it to see if anything was below the surface.

"They're able to stay together and get an idea of where they're searching and increase the odds of finding the swimmer," Cory Pippin with Martin County Fire Rescue said.

The dive teams came out of the water by mid-afternoon. The investigation is now in the hands of the sheriff's office.

WPTV saw some distraught family members at the beach waiting for any news.

The scene was unlike the calm that most beachgoers experience.

"I can't imagine what the mother is going through," Michele Alexander of Jensen Beach said. "I hope they find him."

Double red flags are flying to keep people out of the water from Jensen Beach south to Stuart Beach.

First responders said they would continue their search until the teen was located.

Alincy was last seen wearing blue and pink shorts. If you've seen him, call the U.S. Coast Guard at 305-535-4472.

"Nick is just this kid that you want to love... He’s that kid who just can get you to just be who you need to be around him" Elda Jean, Nick Alincy's aunt, said.

On Monday morning, Alincy and his girlfriend were at Sea Turtle Beach, taking pictures. Officials say he then went into the waters for a swim but had not resurfaced.

"He was supposed to be here with a lot of friends, they were just coming late, and he happened to arrive here earlier than them," Jean said.

Soon after, a multi-agency search began as law enforcement officials and first responders looked for the missing teen.

Martin County Fire Rescue, Martin County Sheriff's Office, FWC, and the U.S. Coast Guard had been patrolling the beaches throughout the day and throughout the night.

"I can’t imagine what the family’s going through, knowing that their loved one is somewhere in this vast ocean not knowing for sure that he had not made it, having some hope but also being realistic," Martin County Chief Deputy John Budensiek said.

After a more than 24-hour search, deputies had found Alincy's body about five miles south from where he had vanished.

"This is a tragedy, this is drama, this is our reality that this family is dealing with," Jean said.

"It’s hard, sorry. It’s hard," Richard Alincy, his older brother, said.

Loved ones were also searching throughout the night with flashlights in hopes of finding the 17-year-old.

"We did have deputies on the beach with flashlights," Budensiek said. "If it was any of our loved ones, we would expect the same."

WPBF 25 News learned that Alincy played for the PSL Soccer Club and was a passionate athlete. On Tuesday evening at Swan Park in Port St. Lucie, loved ones and community members plan to gather for a remembrance vigil.

"Nick was Nick ! He always had a smile on his face that was contagious. He loved to play soccer so much that during his lunch breaks he would leave work to come train with the team and then run back before his break ended. Nick would kick the ball around with the siblings of the other players and volunteer his time in coaching at our recreational level. Nick touched a lot of lives and he will be missed and celebrated. We will miss Nick on and off the Field and we love our #5!!" Director of Coaching Manny Ardeljan told WPBF 25 News.

"The next thing she knew all she saw was headlights and that’s all she could really remember and the next thing she knew she was on the other side of the road being helped,” said Karissa Landgrebe.

Karissa has been trying to keep Rae's spirits up as Rae begins the long process of trying to heal.

"I’m grateful to God that she is alive. God definitely had angels watching over her. It’s the scariest feeling a parent could ever feel,” said Karissa Landgrebe.

Right now, a top concern on the family’s mind is whether the driver who hit Rae will be brought to justice.

"If someone knows or saw anything, just please, please come forward. That’s all we ask,” said Karissa Landgrebe. "I don’t think someone should just be able to hit someone with a car and just be able to drive off like nothing happened. What if that was their child who got hit if they had a child? I mean how would that make them feel? I mean as a mother, it’s — you can’t even imagine."

If you have any information about what happened you're urged to call the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office at 772-462-7300.

The family has set up a Go Fund Me page to help Rae during this difficult time. Click here to visit that page.

UPDATE: The body of Nick Lovensen Alincy was recovered at Bathtub Beach in Stuart around 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office reports. That’s about five miles south of where he was last seen, officials said.

The original story continues below.

A 17-year-old boy went missing in the Atlantic Ocean, just minutes after a photo session showed him greeting the sunrise with arms raised, according to Florida officials.

Nick Lovensen Alincy of Fort Pierce vanished around 6:45 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 6, in waters off Sea Turtle Beach, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. Sea Turtle Beach is in Jensen Beach, about 115 miles north of Miami.

“A witness said it appears Nick got caught up in rough surf during an early morning swim that was pulling him further out into the water,” the sheriff’s office said.

Alincy and his girlfriend arrived at the beach at daybreak to take some “neat photos of the sunrise,” Chief Deputy John Budensiek said in an interview posted on Facebook by WPBF.

“Several individuals have since reported to us that a few yards down the beach, they also saw Mr. Alincy in the surf before he went under. (He) has not since resurfaced,” Budensiek said.

“Really, this is a needle in a haystack type of recovery operation.”

Alincy played soccer for the PSL Hurricanes FC, a youth club, and was “a dedicated student-athlete at St. Lucie West Centennial High School,” according to a fundraiser.

The search includes Martin County dive teams and aviation units, and officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, officials said.

Swift flowing rip currents that drag people out to sea are the most common cause of beach fatalities along Florida, according to the National Weather Service.

“Rip currents are often referred to as drowning machines by lifeguards,” NOAA reports.

“Speeds are typically 1-2 feet per second, but speeds as high as 8 feet per second have been measured. That is faster than an Olympic swimmer! Drowning deaths occur when people, pulled away from the shoreline, are unable to keep themselves afloat.”
