Home Care In Lexington, KY

Home Care Lexington, KY

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 Waveland State Historic Site 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 Lexington, KY is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

The Always Best Care Difference

Since 1996, Always Best Care has provided non-medical in-home care for seniors to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle as they get older. We are proud to have helped more than 25,000 seniors maintain higher levels of dignity and respect. We focus on providing seniors with the highest level of in-home care available so that they may live happily and independently.

Unlike some senior care companies, we genuinely want to be included in our clients' lives. We believe that personalized care is always the better option over a "one size fits all" approach. To make sure our senior clients receive the best care possible, we pair them with compassionate caregivers who understand their unique needs. That way, they may provide care accordingly without compromising their wellbeing.

The Always Best Care difference lies in life's little moments - where compassionate care and trustworthy experience come together to help seniors live a fruitful, healthy life. Whether you are an aging adult that can't quite keep up with life's daily tasks or the child of a senior who needs regular in-home services, Always Best Care is here to help.

“I cannot say enough good things about Always Best Care and the service they provide to my disabled father. They have worked hand-in-glove with the VA for my father’s care. Everyone - and I do mean everyone - from ownership down to the daily aides who provide direct care to my father, have shown him the kindness and dignity you would hope to receive from a family member. Any issues we have ever had have been addressed promptly, even during weekends. Sarah and her team are hands on - I doubt many owners of similar companies make house visits like Sarah has. Any new aide who has been provided for my father has had personal introduction by a member of management, and we have had management team members step up to the plate when there have been scheduling issues to ensure my father received the daily assistance he needs. I recommend ABC highly and can’t thank them enough for all that they do. 5 Stars across the board!”

“Our family can't say enough about Always Best Care and taking care of our Dad these past months. The caregivers are angels and so thoughtful and attentive to our Dad. He could be grouchy at times, and they were so patient with him. As his health degraded, the caregiver staff was rotated to accommodate his changing needs and we seemed to have just the right person for the right stage. He really bonded with several and looked forward to seeing them each day. Thank you so much for all your support we could not have done this without you.”

She comes twice a week. She cooks some, she does all the tasks listed as far as cleaning their bathrooms, doing the dishes and laundry, preparing the meals, and taking out the trash. She also provides companionship. She will listen to my mother and have conversations with them.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Lexington, KY?

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 Lexington, KY
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 Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse - Lexington or visit The Loudoun House, 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.

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 Lexington, KY, 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.

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 KY'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.

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 Lexington, KY 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 Lexington, KY

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

This information can include basic care and rent, resident availability, and services provided.

University of Kentucky faculty issue no-confidence vote in Capilouto over policy change

LEXINGTON, Ky. — The University of Kentucky president and faculty senate are at odds over the restructuring of the university’s governance and regulations. The university senate approved a vote of no confidence in President Eli Capilouto.

What You Need To Know

Fifty-eight members of the 94 member senate approved the no confidence resolution, with 24 voting against it. Eleven members abstained from the vote. However, the move really is more symbolic than anything and comes as Capilouto proposed for the senate to lose much of its power.

In a resolution, the UK senate said Capilouto created ‘unnecessary and harmful division’ and amplified false narratives that faculty members in the senate do not prioritize student needs. The resolution also called into question Capilouto’s ability to lead.

“We know what’s going to happen. We’re PhDs. we’re not stupid. We know that what he wants to do is going to happen anyway, but this is our way of saying we see what you’ve done; you have manipulated students and staff against the faculty, you suggested the university senate doesn’t represent students and staff,” said professor Douglas Michael, incoming chair of the Senate Council.

This follows the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees approved last month to shift the university senate from a policy-making role to an advisory-role to the president. Michael said taking away the senate’s power to determine academic policies is nothing more than a power grab from Capilouto.

“That’s the part I really don’t like is that I have no other explanation for what appears to be really good people doing inexplicably not good things,” Michael said.

President Capilouto released a statement which reads in part that students and staff don’t see themselves represented in the current academic structure. Michael said another reason offered was the senate approval process is cumbersome but claimed when Senate members asked where and how to improve, it was ignored.

“To his credit, he talks to people a lot, but I’m not sure he listens a lot,” Michael said.

In a prepared video, the UK Board of Trustees and its chairman, Britt Brockman, support the president and say students, staff and some faculty members supported the revision of the school’s regulations.

“It creates more avenues for voices among students, faculty and staff to be involved. Students and staff were empowered to have their voices heard, not manipulated as a few suggested,” Brockman said.

The Board voted 19-1 on the new set of governance regulations which they tasked Capilouto with recommending the changes needed to be made. Brockman said the new rules streamline what the university’s regulations are.

“Let me be clear, the Board of Trustees unequivocally supports Capilouto; who is the right person at an important moment of change to lead Kentucky’s university,” Brockman said.

Michael is unsure what the role of the proposed faculty senate would be, but said the impending final approval is awful.

“We’re going to cooperate; we’re going to engage because the only people harmed by just turning away and going home is the students and that’s not fair,” Michael said.

The Board of Trustees will meet next month to give their final approval on UK’s governance changes.

A similar motion would have extended the senate’s vote of no confidence to the board of trustees. It was tabled at Monday night’s meeting.

Capilouto is the longest tenured public university president in Kentucky.

Long-awaited park opens in Lexington neighborhood displaced by Newtown Pike

It was a promise made two decades ago when the neighborhood of Davis Bottom was razed to make way for the Newtown Pike extension.

The new neighborhood, now called Davis Park, would get a new park when construction of Newtown Pike was completed, state and city leaders said about 20 years ago.

On Tuesday, city, neighborhood and state officials celebrated the grand opening of the nearby park that includes a new playground, a shelter, multi-use trail and open green space.

“No neighborhood is complete without a beautiful park,” said Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton during a press conference at the park located along Newtown Pike, Oliver Lewis Way and Versailles Road.

Former mayor and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Secretary Jim Gray said the project was a team effort with city, state and federal officials.

“It’s a monumental day that we can celebrate a promise made and a promise kept,” Gray said.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, which oversaw the Newtown Pike extension project, was able to secure $1 million in funding for the park. The city contributed $200,000.

Byron Mitchell, president of the Community Land Trust and longtime Davis Park resident, said the park will serve as a gathering area for the neighborhood. The Community Land Trust was formed to buy the land the new neighborhood sits on.

“We now have this beautiful facility to enjoy,” Mitchell said.

Lexington-Fayette Urban County Councilwoman Jennifer Reynolds, who represents the area, said the park is just one many changes at Davis Park.

“I’m so thrilled to see it come to fruition,” Reynolds said. “Parks can be a symbol of hope for the future. This park stands in a historic area to remember the people that were here before it and to serve as a gathering place for those that live and frequent it now.”

Dozens of families were relocated to make way for the Newtown Pike extension. Families started moving out of their homes to make way for the federal highway project in 2006.

A little less than 100 people lived in government-provided mobile homes starting in 2008 until affordable homes and apartments were built over the next decade. The park that was once there was removed due to a sewer project.

In addition to affordable homes and apartments, the plans for the area had long called for a park. Before construction on Newtown Pike began, the neighborhood had a beloved park.

In addition to the park, the city has also started construction on a new community center. Using federal coronavirus relief money, the city set aside $2 million for the new community center. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet contributed $1 million toward the community center, which will have meeting spaces and offices for the Community Land Trust.

The community center is expected to open later this year.

What to know about Kentucky football transfer quarterback, Owensboro alum Gavin Wimsatt

Kentucky football addressed its quarterback depth concerns with a commitment from former Owensboro High School star and Rutgers starter Gavin Wimsatt on Tuesday.

Here is what you need to know about the Wildcats’ newest quarterback.

A four-star prospect who was originally in the high school class of 2022 before graduating from Owensboro High School in September 2021, Wimsatt was ranked as the No. 23 quarterback nationally by the 247Sports Composite.

Kentucky was perceived as the leader for Wimsatt’s commitment at one point in his high school recruitment, but he eventually pledged to Rutgers amid reports of a significant name, image and likeness contract. Wimsatt played the first three games of the 2021 season for Owensboro before announcing he had finished the requirements for early graduation in time to enroll at Rutgers for the fall semester.

He left Owensboro after helping lead his team to a 49-42 win over rival Daviess County. Even without Wimsatt, Owensboro won its next nine games before falling to Frederick Douglass in the state semifinals.

In 25 games across three seasons at Rutgers, Wimsatt threw for 2,537 yards and rushed for 628 yards. He scored 25 total touchdowns.

Wimsatt completed just 46.6% of his passes at Rutgers, and he threw more interceptions (17) than touchdowns (14). Last season, he started every game for the Scarlet Knights, completing 47.8% of his passes for 1,735 yards with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. He totaled 497 rushing yards with 11 touchdowns in 2023.

While Rutgers recorded its first winning season since 2014 with Wimsatt as its starter last fall, coach Greg Schiano opened the quarterback job for competition this spring. Wimsatt entered the transfer portal after Minnesota transfer Athan Kaliakmanis, who had previously played for Rutgers offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca at Minnesota, was named the starter.

Georgia transfer Brock Vandagriff, a former five-star high school recruit who played sparingly in three seasons as a backup to Stetson Bennett and Carson Beck, is expected to start at quarterback for Kentucky in 2024.

The Wildcats must replace their entire quarterback room, though. Former starter Devin Leary was drafted in the sixth round by the Baltimore Ravens while backups Kaiya Sheron (UT Martin), Deuce Hogan (New Mexico State) and Destin Wade (Colorado) all entered the transfer portal.

Former Lexington Catholic star Beau Allen, who served as Will Levis’ backup at Kentucky in 2021 before stints at FCS Tarleton State and Georgia Southern, returned to UK this spring as a walk-on. Four-star Lexington Christian Academy star Cutter Boley, who coaches have described as the quarterback of the future, graduated a semester early to enroll at UK in January and participate in spring practice.

New UK offensive coordinator Bush Hamdan has made no secret of his plans to use the quarterback run game, and Wimsatt should offer some help in certain packages even if Vandagriff starts as expected. Wimsatt’s track record suggests he was unlikely to land a guaranteed starting job at a Power Five program, but his extensive experience in the Big Ten makes him a valuable backup in the event of injury or struggles from Vandagriff.

Like Vandagriff, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Wimsatt has two years of eligibility remaining.

Kentucky cancels road game vs. Xavier due to weather concerns

On Tuesday, Kentucky baseball announced its showdown on the road against Xavier has been canceled. The teams were initially scheduled to play a standalone game, providing Kentucky a break from conference play.

“Due to the forecast of severe weather, including the potential for tornadic activity, in the Cincinnati area and with the health and safety of both players and fans in mind Tuesday night’s game against Xavier has been cancelled,” the program wrote on X.

Kentucky is coming off a series-deciding 7-4 win over Arkansas on Sunday. Kentucky’s offensive unit scored a combined 18 runs in back-to-back wins over the Razorbacks. After the win on Sunday, Kentucky head coach Nick Mingione raved about his team’s performance.

“We are at our best when we just do a ton of things,” Mingione said. “If you think about today, we laid down a bunt and scored a run, we had a home run — two home runs to score three of our runs. We had two-strike base hits, we used the middle back side of the field. We just when we’re at our best.

“We do that we had a delayed steal, we had another stolen base. When we’re at our best, we’re scoring and we’re doing a bunch of different things and today was no different. Give those guys credit, I mean, it’s one thing to call a play but it’s a whole other thing to actually execute it and we executed a very high level over the past two games.”

Kentucky’s bats were hot from the start on Sunday, as Émilien Pitre continued his big performance from Saturday by hitting a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. In the previous game, he delivered a two-run double off the wall in the second inning and another two-run double in the fourth in what was a statement 11-3 win at Kentucky Proud Park.

Nick Lopez kept things going in the third, homering down the left-field line to score two additional runs. The fourth inning is where things would get out of hand for the Razorbacks’ pitching staff, as Kentucky punished the Arkansas bullpen in several different ways.

Nolan McCarthy doubled to right center to begin the onslaught. Grant Smith scored McCarthy on a sacrifice bunt one out later. Ryan Waldschmidt doubled, Pitre returned right after to score one run on a double of his own as well. Devin Burkes rounded things out with a sac fly to score Waldschmidt to score the third run of the inning.

The pivotal moment would effectively put the game out of reach for Arkansas, who were able to gain four runs back in the latter innings. However, the three-run fourth inning would end up being the difference in the final score.
