Personal Care Consultation


“There are so many nursing homes to choose from, with their guidance I was able to find the right facility for my mother, right away. I would highly recommend them to any family or friends in need of their services.”

Candace K.

“Steve and Claudia at Always Best Care Senior Services were just awesome in how they provided at home care for my mother Carmen. Starting with the initial consultation by Steve to learn about mom's personal care needs to the follow-up visit of a registered nurse to the eventual placement of a compassionate caregiver; every step of their service was well thought out and they truly delivered on providing a level of care for mom that exceeded our families (and mom's) expectations. It can be very nerve racking to find and leave your loved one with a caregiver but this company gets that and they were just fantastic. Thank you Always Best Care!”

Mark B.

“ABC has provided the essential care and support my dad needed after hospitalization and chemo treatments. I have peace of mind knowing they are supporting him.”

Michelle B.

“I have been utilizing Always Best Care Senior Services for 2 years to care 24/7 for my elderly parents. I am very pleased with their services. The Owners and Office Staff bend over backwards to make sure that there is always coverage, to alert my parents Caregiver Team of any requests that I make, to advise me when there is an issue with my parents or their dog. The Caregiver Team working with my parents are all compassionate and caring, knowledgeable and skilled. Sadly, my Father passed away in the fall of 2020. Each of their Caregivers, the Owners and the Office Staff expressed to me that they would like to attend his memorial service when we are able to have it. During the weeks he was slipping away, the Caregiver team not only took care of my parents, they looked after me, gently reminding me to eat, rest or take a break. They truly care not only for my parents, but for all our family. I can’t begin to express what a comfort it has been to have them caring for my parents, especially during the pandemic when visits are prohibited. They are my eyes and ears. Working intimately with my parents, the Caregivers are very tuned in to even subtle changes. If you are in the market and looking for a senior services/home health care company, I strongly urge you to reach out to Always Best Care Senior Services. You’ll be happy you did.”

Heidi R.

“If you want quality care for yourself or your loved ones, Steve and his time are the best, don’t waste your time looking elsewhere. As an estate planning attorney, I have recommended clients to Steve who have been very happy with his team. Steve and his team went above and beyond for one specific client of mine that had a very complex situation, and I am eternally grateful to them. I only hope I can continue to work together with him - Steve and his team are dedicated to making sure you are comfortable, happy and safe. My favorite part about Always Best Care is that all of their staff are TRAINED EMPLOYEES WITH CONTINUING EDUCATION - NOT INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS!”

Aldo C.

“Always best care is a top notch senior services company. They go above and beyond with their clients and treat them as if they are family. If you are looking for a great family oriented team to help take care of your love one look no further. Give Always best care a call you will not be disappointed!!”

Forrest H.

“Highly recommended! All the staff is very professional and courteous”

Ryan N.

“Steve and his team were amazing. As my father’s Parkinson’s progress, we were in need of home health care desperately. Steve and his nurse came to our home, assess the situation, and set up a schedule to accommodate our needs. I would highly recommend them to any family or friends in need of their services.”

Claudine P.

“Steven and his team are superior in caring for aging friends and family. The most important thing is having people who you can trust with your family.”

Allison T.

“Steve and his team will take superior care of your loved ones.”

John D.

“Steve Snell and Staff of Always Best Care Senior Services have been amazingly responsive, helpful and worked diligently to make sure my clients needs were met! Can't praise them enough. The case was staffed immediately and overseen at all levels. Thank you for Always providing the Best Care!”

Karen G.

“I have worked with, and explored working with, various agencies and registries in the Palm Beach County area. I am picky. Always Best Care is qualitatively a notch above every other organization I've encountered. Responsive. Amiable. Professional. The aide, Islande, who has worked with my mom is top-notch for our needs. And . . . I have no doubt Steve (the agency's owner) and his staff would strive to find someone else, if it hadn't been a fit. If you are looking for Nursing Care, I strongly recommend giving Always Best Care a chance. BTW: It is important to understand that working with an Nursing Agency (like Always Best Care), means the staff are employees, not independent contractors (as they are when working through a Nursing Registry). An Agency is vested in having good employees, and a good agency wants you to be happy. But even all Agencies are not created equal. I worked with one (Alternative Health Care) where aides did not always show up! That was painful and incredibly stressful, and the manager and other higher-up staff didn't give a hoot.”

Liz S.

“I wish there were more that five stars. I can not say enough about the experience we have had in working with Always Best Care Senior Services. Not only were they extremely receptive to our needs, available immediately to every call, text or email, compassionate and kind...every single employee was better than the next. My Dad's recent death and my mothers recent surgery (with complications) requiring extra care was a traumatic time for our family. The care she received was beyond skilled and professional. We knew she was in trusting, caring hands. She was happy. I have recommended ABC to others and they have had the same experience. Do not hesitate to reach out to them if you are in need. I highly recommend them. I know I will be reaching out to Steven and Claudia the next time I am in need. My family and I are extremely grateful.”

Donna H.

“Fabulous experience with Always Best Care. Treated my 90 year old Father in Law with dignity and respect. We actually had fun with his aides and they were helpful and kind.”

Alicia B.

“I am very glad to have chosen ABC Senior Services to get us through a very difficult time when my parents finally reached the end of their independent lifestyles at age 96 and 97. Scheduling was difficult and sometimes changes were made last minute, but ABC came through as well as could be expected. Despite losing his wife of 37 years, my father is currently doing very well back north in an assisted living facility. Thank you ABC for the compassion you expressed throughout the 4 months you were there for us.”

Rob C.

“Always Best Care is a great company who goes above and beyond for their clients. My mother fell at my brothers home in Connecticut and I called Steve Snell for some guidance. Even though Steve is in Florida he was able to get my family connected with a representative in Connecticut immediately. Thank you Steve!”

Mike B.

“ABC goes to great lengths to get to know their clients in order to provide the best possible match with ABC’s in home care providers. The aides blend into the home environment with professionalism, compassion and helpfulness. They are unobtrusive but available at all times. As a primary caregiver I wish I started with them years ago.”


“Extremely friendly and professional. I was very comfortable leaving my loved one in their care.”

happy C.

“Great, helpful, supportive service! I tried others, but ANC is the beat!”


“Experiencing using ABC is the best you will find anywhere. The owners and employees are there for one reason and that is to make their clients happy with their caregivers. I have never seen such compassion from an agency. I am the client, so I know what to look for and the caregivers they recommend. Would be happy to talk to anyone with questions. Thanks”

Mimi B.

“Always Best Care's caregivers and office staff are the best I have dealt with.”

Bruce M.

“I can't say enough about how much ABC has helped both our parents and our family. Their name -- Always Best Care -- is clearly their guiding principle! From the highest level administration (Stephen and Beverly) to the amazing caregivers and schedulers -- the entire staff have been responsive and attentive from day one. They have been unfailingly respectful, caring, professional and competent. They were flexible and kind when my mother became terminally ill. And readily available and again responsive when we reinitiated services for my father. Their attentiveness and professionalism is reflected in the amazingly kind, competent and resourceful caregiving staff. Their exceptional caregivers have allowed us peace of mind, knowing that our Dad is getting great support from reliable providers who readily alert us of any matters that need attention. I highly recommend ABC!”

Carla R.

“Always Best Care has been wonderful in many ways. Steve Snell, Owner and Area Representative, and Beverly Casper, RN were patient, kind and respectful while my Dad came to terms with the idea that he really did need help. They were flexible and open and that made all the difference. My Dad's aide Fabienne is responsible and caring and now more of a companion than aide. Steve and his scheduling team has been proactive about any changes that needed to occur and very good about communicating with me both by phone and email. Having them on board has lessened the worry I feel on a daily basis. My mother had a prolonged illness and through the years we dealt with many health care agencies. The attention and care we have received from Always Best Care is, by far, the best we ever have experienced and we are very grateful to have found them.”

Linda S.

“I highly recommend Always Best Care Senior Services if you have a loved one that needs personal care.”

Melanie T.

“Dori, is such a wonderful person and makes such an impact on everyone she is involved with.”

 In-Home Care West Palm Beach, FL

How does In-home Senior Care in West Palm Beach, FL 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.

 Senior Care West Palm 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.

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 West Palm 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.

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 West Palm Beach, FL 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
Veteran's Benefits

Aid and Attendance benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.

Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-Term Care Insurance

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.

Private Insurance
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.

Life Insurance
Life Insurance

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.

Respite Care West Palm Beach, FL

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 West Palm 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.

 Caregivers West Palm Beach, FL

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 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:

An assessment of your senior loved one


An in-depth discussion of the needs of your senior loved one to remain in their own home


Reviewing a detailed Care Plan that will meet your senior loved one's needs


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.

If you have never considered in-home care before, we understand that you and your family may have concerns about your Care Plan and its Care Coordinator. To help give you peace of mind, know that every team member and caregiver must undergo comprehensive training before being assigned to a Care Plan.

When you're ready, we encourage you to contact your local Always Best Care representative to set up a Care Consultation. Our Care Coordinators would be happy to meet with you in person to get to know you better, discuss your needs, and help put together a personalized Care Plan specific to your needs.

Developer seeks to build 2 projects in West Palm Beach's Northwood neighborhood

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Audubon Development, the developer behind the King's Landing project in Fort Pierce, has two additional ideas on the table in Palm Beach County.Dale Matteson, the CEO and president of Audubon Development, said there is no timeline for construction and everything is still in approvals.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Audubon Development, the developer behind the King's Landing project in Fort Pierce, has two additional ideas on the table in Palm Beach County.

Dale Matteson, the CEO and president of Audubon Development, said there is no timeline for construction and everything is still in approvals. But city spokeswoman Diane Papadakos later said both projects are no longer being considered.

John Biederwolf, the owner of This Is It Cafe, said he's expecting to see change right down the street soon.

"Well, for purely selfish reasons, the more people that are in the neighborhood, the better off it is for the neighborhood, and me personally and my business," Biederwolf said.

Matteson said there are two ideas for the area, projects called Northwood Lofts and Broadway Circle.

"After 50 or 60 years, a change is good," Darrell Smith said. "I love it. I think it's a great idea."

Smith's longtime friend, Bobby Gilbert, talked about the potential change.

"Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad," Gilbert said.

"People just have to get adjusted to change," Smith said. "It'll be fine."

"That's going to be a good development, going to change the makeup of the whole place and change the dynamics," Gilbert said.

Matteson spoke to WPTV on the phone.

"What we do is kind of work on those edges of being where things are doing to be, not where they are right now," Matteson said.

He talked about how to deal with potential growth and opposition.

"That's a good question, and sometimes there is opposition to growth, and you've got to listen to it, you can't kind of come in and bulldoze over people," Matteson said. "You've got to listen to what their concerns are and be respectful of their neighborhoods. You want to fit in and augment what they've got and enhance the neighborhood and add value."

Matteson said there is no timetable yet.

"Everything else is in different phases of approvals and permits, so there is no construction," he said.

Another longtime resident, Derrick, is taking it all in.

"Northwood is already changing," he said. "Personally for me, I think that's a bit too much noise."

Derrick said he thinks it may be loud.

"My house on 21st Street, where I was born and raised, every time the train came by the whole house shook inside," he said. "Pictures on the wall, the furniture, it shook like an earthquake. … It's gonna be loud."

A Palm Beach County private equity firm plans to sell one of its portfolio companies to a publicly traded manufacturer on the New York Stock Exchange.

West Palm Beach-based Comvest Partners revealed on Nov. 6 that it entered a deal with Hubbell Inc. (NYSE: HUBB) on the sale of Systems Control, a utility equipment business it acquired five years ago along with its parent company Northern Star Holdings. According to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing, the combined price pursuant to the stock purchase agreement was reported at $1.1 billion in cash.

“This successful outcome highlights Comvest’s expertise in helping companies achieve their growth objectives as well as our investment leadership in the infrastructure services space," Maneesh Chawla, a managing partner at Comvest said. "We are excited for the company’s [Systems Control] future as part of Hubbell.”

Based in Iron Mountain, Michigan, Systems Control was founded in 1962 as a subsidiary of M.J. Electric, focusing on designing and manufacturing control relay panels. In 2000, M.J. Electric was sold and formed Northern Star with sister company Systems Control. Comvest bought Northern Star in 2018 as part of its strategy to acquire midsize businesses, boost their value and sell them for a profit.

Brad Lebouef, CEO at Systems Control, said, “Comvest supported System Control’s vision for growth throughout our partnership, providing both capital and invaluable support key to the achievement of our desired growth milestones. We are appreciative of Comvest’s stewardship and look forward to our next chapter with the terrific team at Hubbell.”

Shelton, Connecticut-based Hubbell was founded in 1888 by Harvey Hubbell and today boasts nearly $5 billion in annual revenue as a leading utility manufacturer. The longtime firm has several multimillion acquisitions under its belt, including an $89 million cash offer in October to buy Indústria Eletromecânica Balestro, a Brazil-based wire manufacturer.

"Our strategy to complement organic revenue growth with acquisitions is focused on acquiring assets that extend our capabilities, expand our product offerings, and present opportunities to compete in core, adjacent or complementary markets," Hubbell stated in its latest SEC quarterly earnings report. "Our acquisition strategy also provides the opportunity to advance our revenue growth objectives during periods of weakness or inconsistency in our end-markets."

The Systems Control deal is still subject to customary closing conditions, but Comvest said it anticipates it will be completed by the end of this year.

Harris Williams and Lincoln International are serving as financial advisors to Systems Control, and McDermott Will & Emery LLP is serving as legal advisor. Morgan Stanley is serving as financial advisor to Hubbell, and Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz is serving as legal advisor.

West Palm Beach restaurant featured on Guy Fieri's Food Network series debuts food truck

Cholo Soy Cocina, the tasty taco hot-spot with a brick and mortar restaurant on South Dixie Highway in ...

Cholo Soy Cocina, the tasty taco hot-spot with a brick and mortar restaurant on South Dixie Highway in West Palm, Beach has gone mobile.

In addition to providing some of the tastiest tacos on Earth (they are even Martha Stewart approved), they are now running a food truck and taking that scratch-made goodness on the road.

Operating out of a brand new Titan Trailer, owner, operator and chef Clay Carnes said they had the truck's first soft opening in mid-October outside of Civil Society Brewing in West Palm Beach.

Ordering the truck in late June, the trailer was built and delivered a few months later. Carnes said they did a custom paint job and a few other touches, including a menu board he made by hand, before they were ready to open.

Food Network's Guy Fieri, Vanilla Ice:Film at West Palm Beach's Cholo Soy restaurant for 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives'

The entire process turned out to quite fortuitous, he said, in that a good friend turned out to be a representative for Titan and helped make the entire transaction very smooth.

Though the kitchen layout inside the trailer was the stock layout from Titan, "it wasn't all that different from the layout at the restaurant," Carnes said. Size-wise it was similar as well — the kitchen space at the Dixie location is a little tight.

In addition to taking those delicious tacos and other dishes on the road, the new trailer is also fully online capable.

When on location, they are able to get orders sent directly to the trailer. On their first night outside Civil Society, they placed cards inside the brewery where customers could scan a QR code, get the menu, order and pay.

Carnes said his team can then bring the food directly from the trailer into the brewery to the customers.

For those preferring the old school walk-up to place an order, they are more than happy to accommodate, he said.

Can you get the same delicious dishes at the trailer that you can at the brick and mortar store? Yes, and no. Carnes said the trailer menu is still a work in progress, but right now it's sort of a "greatest hits" of the menu at the Dixie Highway location.

The trailer was at Civil Society again on Wednesday, Oct. 18 and Thursday, Oct. 19 and Saturday, Oct. 21 they were at Swank Farmers Market in Loxahatchee.
