How does In-home Senior Care in Abington, PA 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.

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 Abington, PA, 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 Abington, PA 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

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

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 Abington,PA 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.

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.

Five free concerts are lined up for this summer's concert series and each night will feature food trucks, beer, wine, and cocktails.

JENKINTOWN, PA — Abington's summer concert series is getting ready to kick off its five-concert run this summer at the Abington Art Center.

Performances will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursdays throughout the summer.

Show dates are June 29, July 6, July 13, July 20, and July 27.

The gates open at 6 p.m. each night.

Guests are welcome to bring blankets, chairs, and dancing shoes.

After record-breaking attendance numbers last year alongside newly appointed series programmer, Joe Montone, the art center team will expand their 'soundtrack of togetherness' across five free concerts complete with rotating food trucks, interactive booths and refreshments from Moss Mill Brewing Co. and Mermaid Spirits.

Philadelphia's premier 60s soul band, York Street Hustle, will kick off the series on June 29.

This 10-piece ensemble reinvigorates classics from Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and the Four Tops with the same energy and grit as the day these songs were originally performed.

They also infuse their own repertoire which takes inspiration from the mid-century soul sounds using period techniques and equipment.

The second concert celebrates original, independent artists from Montgomery County on July 6.

Camera Thief is an anthemic rock band from Jenkintown, comprised of two brother duos and longtime friends, Joe and Brendan Duffey, Robert and Pasquale Defazio, and Joe Hartnett.

Their self-produced debut record, "The War Machine," is full of propulsive sounds that have been featured on ALT 104.5 as well as 88.5 WXPN.

LEV will also perform with the sonic songs of Glenside-based Josh Levandosky and Doug Wartman.

Combo Melaza will take over the stage on July 13 with a night of salsa lead by Edgar Castro and his 12-plus member collective hailing from Philadelphia.

Edgar describes the group as, "passionate musicians preserving the best music available to the best of our abilities," which he believes has been handed down from their ancestral and familial traditions to be shared with new generations.

Joining them will be live salsa instruction from Jenkintown locals — Flaco's Dance Studio.

Next up is an evening with Zimbabwean born soul singer, MUKAMURI.

Now based in Doylestown, his music is a platform for education, exploring societal challenges, and uplifting audiences.

Mukamuri's latest single, 'Black Joy', is a beautiful affirmation of bravery in the face of oppression with the refrain, "I'll be alright, I'll be okay."

He will be backed by a brand-new band for his Jenkintown debut on July 20.

The series finale on July 27 features the hits of legendary rock band Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers as performed by area tribute act, Full Moon Fever.

The band is led by Summer Concert Series alumni Pat Mencel, who performed as part of last year's multi-band season closing Fleetwood Mac tribute.

"I'm so excited to be providing this community with another season of dynamic and captivating performances," Montone said. "This could not be done without the hard work of our team as well as contributions from local sponsors who support the arts in our literal backyard."

Thanks to support from area organizations like Peco, Restore Dispensaries, NJM Insurance, Penn State Abington, Feast Your Eyes Catering, and the Gallman Group, the concert series is free.

Abington Art Center is still welcoming business partnerships to complete the financial goal for this year's festivities.

Abington Art Center is located at 515 Meetinghouse Road in Jenkintown.
