Home Care In Inglewood, CA

Home Care Inglewood, CA

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 Centinela Adobe 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 Inglewood, CA is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

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.

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.

“Carrie is amazing. Very knowledgeable about Senior living, lifestyle, and care. Super responsive and phenomenal follow up. An incredible resource for all things "Senior".”

Richard W.

“Always Best Care was there for us after my wife's surgery. We had a caregiver come each day for two weeks to help bath, feed, walk, and tidy the house during working hours so that my wife was not alone. Our caregiver Naomi was a God sent and so delightful. I often overheard my wife and Naomi singing together. What a joy! Thank you Loli and ABC Senior Services for making this service available to Beach Cities.”

Cedric T.

“Loli demonstrated a level of professionalism that stood out, and her service and follow through made our experience with Always Best Care Senior Services stress free. We had a unique situation that required a specific type of caregiver and Loli was able to make a great match! Overall a great experience.”

Lauren D.

“My dad came home from the hospital, then to hospice care for 4 months, then passed at home. Loli helped our family during multiple transitions of his care. She is professional and efficient, but also compassionate and empathic. She was a core contact for our family from in- and out-of town, and always responded quickly to calls, emails or txts. Dad's caregiver needs and schedules were ever-changing and Loli was always able to adjust, helping us to coordinate needs from hospice and family. We are so thankful Dad was able to spend his last months at home. We continue to use Loli's services for our mom. The caregivers are trained well and often became friends to my folks. I highly recommend Loli's services.”

Vicky P.

“Excellent service. Professional staff and wonderful caregivers.”

Elizabeth B.

“I would highly recommend Always Best Care Senior Servicesto help you navigate the care of your loved ones in their senior years of need. We called them when we found out my 92 year old mother in law was due to be released from the hospital but clearly not able to care for herself upon her release. It was a stressful situation but Loli new exactly the right questions to ask and heard our needs and pointed us in the right direction with all that needed to be done. She set up a call with hospice who arranged for all necessary equipment to be delivered in less than a 24 hour period. She also set up 3 very competent experienced care givers to be at the home in that same 24 hour period. The speed and professionalism in which this all happened could not have handled any better in my opinion. Working with Loli at Always Best Care Senior Services put our minds at ease and got everything set up for us to care for my mother in law. Loli was hands on in meeting with us and introducing the care givers and involved with speaking to doctors and hospice and everyone involved with my mother in laws care. She made a highly stressful time much more manageable and guided us every step of the way. She also followed up and made sure all that was supposed to be done was being taken care of. You are in good hands when calling on them for your loved ones care. I am happy to speak to anyone directly if you would like to ask any questions I give my permission for Always Best Care to give my personal phone number out to speak to anyone who is considering using their services.”

Randi E.

“Loli is very caring, worked with us to get the best caregiver match for my parents, was able to schedule someone when we needed a caregiver on short notice and she always made suggestions to us to help make things better and more comfortable for my parents.”

Lissen G.

“We are deeply grateful to Loli and to two of the ABC caregivers in particular, María Flores and Soledad, for their professionalism, dedication and superb service over the course of nearly two years. They provided coverage on evening shifts on weekends and some weekdays —as well as on occasional overnight shifts— for my mother who was in the early-to-moderate stages of Alzheimer’s. (We recently moved her into an assisted living facility.) Because our need for ABC's services was sporadic and variable, Loli and her staff often had to juggle quite a bit to accommodate us — for which we are grateful. Occasionally we’d be assigned a caregiver who wasn’t the best fit but Loli was always responsive to our concerns and would work with us to find a different caregiver. We also appreciate the “added value” that Loli brought to the table — her overall expertise on elder care, knowledge about related resources, and guidance on how to make our home safer for my mother. We are pleased to highly recommend Loli and ABC for your in-home eldercare needs.”

Chris C.

“I needed to find an assisted living community for my dad in a hurry, and knew that I didn't have as much time as I'd like to do all of the research on my own. I was very relieved when I found Loli to help us as a consultant for our search. She was very detail-oriented in acquiring the necessary info from us, and helped us to find a few places with availability that we could visit. I very much appreciated her knowledge of so many various communities, her professionalism, her efficiency, and the wide range of items that she suggested we consider, that we may not have thought of on our own. I would highly recommend her placement services.”

Anna H.

“Always Best Care was an excellent caregiving service for the short time they tended to my ailing mother, a late-stage pancreatic cancer patient. She passed away shortly after we began the caregiving service. In the short time that Always Best Care tended to my mother, the caregiver Maria demonstrated excellent experience. She tended well to my mother and assisted in any other way that she could. Thank you Maria and Always Best Care for your service. I wish you all the kindness and wellness in the world. Colin”

Colin P.

“reliable with excellent oversight”

John W.

“We have had 24/7 care for my mother with ABC for over 2 years. The care and compassion they showed for her really touched my heart. I have had to ask for last minute help when another caregiver (not from ABC) could not show up for a shift, Loli and staff always came through for me. She has always been available to work out problems and last minute requests, I can't say enough about how important that has been to me when I live out of state.I have really been able to rely on their judgement once they got to know my moms likes and needs, they always tried to match her with a caregiver that she would also feel comfortable with personally.The caregivers were long term, they did not come and go, mom really became attached and appreciated them. The caregivers speak highly about Loli as their employer, they have mentioned to me they really feel like she cares and looks after them as well. Touches like Loli dropping by for a visit to chat with mom, or remembering her birthday with a bunch of flowers was so great. I would definitely recommend!”

Cindy P.

“Loli Ramezani and her staff are top notch when it comes to the service they provide. They are very accommodating on all levels from helping you think things through from start to finish, as well as remaining flexible through each process with the ultimate changes that always seem to arise. I highly recommend them and will be using them again if/when the need presents itself”

Elaine C.

“Loli was excellent to work with. She really took the time to understand my father in-law and the family's needs. We had a wonderful caregiver for my father in-law and when it came time to move him from our home, Loli was instrumental in finding a Room and Board that was a great fit. We had used a different service and we can tell you Always Best Care is MUCH higher quality.”

Lisa C.

“This was a wonderful experience. The care giver did a fantastic job taking care of my mother. I would recommend them to anyone. The care giver was kind, helpful, and provided all the help we needed. Their service was instrumental in my mother being able to get her independence.”

Mary K.

“Loli and the staff at Always Best Care were very professional, compassionate, and resourceful in providing in home care for my Mom. Loli was responsive when I needed to talk to her about changes or adjustments to my Mom’s care. With her experience and knowledge in the field of senior care she always had recommendations and resources to reach out to when we needed to consider options and alternatives for my Mom’s care. Loli was very compassionate and respectful of my Mom’s wants and needs. I would highly recommend Loli and Always Best Care for senior care services.”

Dave K.

“Outstanding service. I would recommend Manhattan Beach Always Best Care to anyone who needs to have care for a family member. I've had personal experience with Carrie’s organization and was very impressed with her and her caretakers.”

Judy H.

“I needed to find someone for taking care of my poor mom without being worried. When I talked to Loli I got the feeling she understood and she went through A to Z on everything with me. Care and quality care is truly what she delivers.”

Georgina C.

“Loli truly cares about her clients and their families ! , She is compassionate professional”

Ted D.

“I am a current client of this provider Always Best Care is good. At this point, I’m just having compassionship, encouragement, lighthousework, and preparing meals. I would recommend them because they’re good, efficient, and caring.”


“I needed to find someone for taking care of my mom without being worried. When I talked to Carrie I got the feeling she understood and she went through A to Z on everything with me. Care and quality care is truly what she delivers.”

Ara A.

“Always Best Care and Carrie Bianco go above and beyond the call of duty to really find the perfect fit for your loved one at a price that is affordable. Their customer service and attention to detail is unparalleled.”

Alison J.

“I can't say enough good things about Always Best Care! Carrie is so professional. She was able to find a great caregiver for my Grandmother on very short notice. The communication has been outstanding as well. When it comes to family, you want to know that they are being taken care of by someone that you can trust. We are so happy to have found Always Best Care.”

Shannon S.

“What a pleasure to meet Carrie and be introduced to her at Always Best Care Senior Services. Rarely have a met someone that offered so much warmth, care, and genuine concern for the well-being and happiness of her clients. Carrie will be my first call when my family members need assistance.”

Lisa H.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Inglewood, CA?


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.

 Senior Care Inglewood, CA

Home Care Inglewood, CA
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 Restaurant or visit Beach Boys Historic Landmark, 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 Inglewood, CA, 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 Inglewood, CA

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 CA'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 Inglewood, CA

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 Inglewood, CA 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 Inglewood, CA

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 Inglewood, CA

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:

  • Centinela Assisted Living Centre
  • House of Itai To Life Adult
  • Senior Care Center
  • Century Skilled Nursing Care
  • Inglewood Health Care Center
  • Eye Quality Care Home
Home Care Inglewood, CA

For many seniors, moving into a senior living community revolves around how and when they want to make a transition to more involved care. Some seniors are more proactive about transitioning to independent living. Others choose to remain home until their care needs or other requirements are satisfied. Remember - our staff is here to help. Contact our office today to learn more about assisted living communities and how we can find a facility that exceeds your expectations.

 In-Home Care Inglewood, CA

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.

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.

At the end of the day, we only hire the best of the best at Always Best Care. Whether you need home care in Inglewood, CA 24-hours a day or only need a respite for a couple of hours, we are here to serve you.

When you're ready, we encourage you to contact your local Always Best Care representative to set up a Care Consultation.

After an exciting day of watching the Los Angeles football team play at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, it’s time to head home. Make it back safely with these transportation options in our Gameday City Guide.


Los Angeles Metro Rail serves the entire county, including Inglewood, with its Metro lines. On game days, take the Metro C line and get off at Hawthorne/Lennox station. From there, Metro offers an Express shuttle service to the stadium.

Municipal transit agency GTrans offers an option on Sunday game days, when it runs the 7X stadium express from Harbor Gateway Transit Center for $4 per round trip. Park and ride to the stadium every 30 minutes starting at 8:30 a.m. After the game, buses leave the stadium until 8:15 p.m., except for when it’s a night game, in which case they run until 10:30 p.m.

Another agency, Torrance Transit, also offers a $4 round-trip ride between the Harbor Gateway Transit Center and the stadium. The first bus leaves the transit center three hours before the game starts, and the last leaves 30 minutes before. After the game ends, buses offer return service for up to 90 minutes.

Finally, the city of Inglewood operates a park and ride program that allows you to book your parking online, and then take a shuttle to and from the stadium. Choose from six locations to park, and then board one of the shuttle buses that runs every 15 minutes. After the game, shuttle buses pick up at the stadium every 15 minutes, starting at the end of the third quarter, and return to parking locations.

Rideshare and taxi

If you use a rideshare service or taxi to come to the game, the drop-off location is on the northbound curb lane on Kareem Court. Your driver must access Kareem Court via westbound Pincay Drive.

After the game, the designated pickup area is on Kareem Court and Manchester Boulevard.


If you want to drive and park, give yourself plenty of time to avoid traffic and crowd delays. Stadium parking lots open four hours before kickoff, so come early to tailgate or to attend the pregame party in the casino parking lot next to the stadium.

Visit the team website to buy your parking pass online. You must have a prepaid pass, or you will be turned away. Review the stadium’s parking maps to ensure that you’re using the designated roads to get to your assigned lot.

You may use accessible parking only with a valid state-issued ADA parking placard or license plate.

After the game, if you have car troubles, text a brief description of the issue and location to 424-541-9222. The stadium will send a team to fix the issue or connect you with a repair service.

Remember if you are drinking at the game, plan for a sober ride home!

Bicycles and skates

The stadium encourages healthy transportation options, such as bicycles and inline skates. Lock your bike to one of the racks outside the stadium, as it is not allowed on the plaza. As for skates, you can store them under your seat during the game, but you must remove them before entering the stadium. Don’t forget to bring a pair of shoes to change into.

No matter how you choose to get home, careful planning and awareness will help you navigate the postgame journey smoothly. So, before leaving your house, check for gameday updates on the stadium website and social media channels, and plan your transportation with confidence.

Earvin “Magic” Johnson and the Magic Johnson Foundation hosted Holiday Hope, an invite-only, drive-through community giveaway event at Faithful Central Bible Church on Saturday, Nov. 18 in Inglewood, California.

Holiday Hope assisted over 800 families from Inglewood and Los Angeles in receiving food and other items through the generosity of Johnson’s Foundation, Feed the Children, Mattel, Cricket, Starbucks, and others.

“I’m inspired to give back because of my mother,” said Johnson, before the start of the event. “During Thanksgiving, my mother would make enough food to help other families in our neighborhood and my job was to deliver the plates so it stuck with me what was expected of me as a child and subsequently, as an adult.”

Outside of their many charitable events in Los Angeles, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson have been serving underserved youth and communities across the country since 1991. They hosted their first Holiday Hope Event in 2014 in Detroit, Flint, and Lansing, Michigan.

“Cookie and I feel so incredibly thankful that we can be a blessing to so many families during the holiday season through our Holiday Hope event in Inglewood this year,” said Johnson. “We get so much joy seeing the excitement on everyone’s face when they receive the food, clothing and the multitude of items that will be provided by the Magic Johnson Foundation and our wonderful partners.”

The event was held in the heart of Inglewood and was coordinated with the assistance of Dr. John-Paul C. Foster, Senior Pastor at Faithful Central.

“One of my major initiatives for our church is to be in the community and impact families and being able to partner with Magic Johnson’s Foundation is absolutely phenomenal,” said Dr. Foster.

“We are honored to give back and I am so grateful for Magic Johnson whose team has been phenomenal and the sponsors because we can’t do this alone and to build a community we have to do this together.”

Participating families received a 25-pound box of shelf-stable food, a 15-pound box of personal care items, and a 5-pound box of AVON products, provided by Feed the Children. Additional items distributed included toys, protein snacks, coats, eyewear, children’s books, canned food provided by Campbell’s, Power Crunch, Herbalife, Mattel, and One Warm Coats.

Johnson began his professional career in Inglewood while playing with the Los Angeles Lakers and noted the changes from the early 80s to today.

“When you think about where Inglewood is today versus when I was playing is totally different and is creating so many opportunities for entrepreneurs and creating jobs which is a wonderful thing,” said Johnson.

This weekend was the official opening of the Inglewood Pumptrack that is located in Edward Vincent Jr. Park. The park is 55 acres and has been a central hub for the community and surrounding cities with playgrounds, picnic areas, a pool, as well as a place to go for sports facilities. Now, they can add one more to the list of athletic facility offerings. The pumptrack area is located between the skatepark and tennis courts. There are actually two tracks, the smaller Woodlands track, and the World Championship track.

This whole project was thanks to the work of Grow Cycling and its founder, Eliot Jackson. As a former World Cup DH racer, he wanted to bring the value of cycling to the community. The idea and vision were set into motion in 2020, and even with all of the restrictions and hurdles, it is impressive to see it complete. The city of Inglewood its Parks and Recreation are all about community and building a better quality of life for its residents. The amount of support was impressive, and it's no wonder so much was accomplished in such a short amount of time.

It was all smiles from Eliot with the support of the Inglewood community and the cycling community.

Eliot and Sebastian wait for an opportunity to get a full lap on the main World Championship track.

The pumptrack is much larger than I had expected. The area that the community carved out for this project is impressive.

Eliot was busy hosting the event, but he did get a few opportunities to enjoy all the hard work.

Eliot was giving out Thousand helmets to kids that didn't have protection. It was cool to see how stoked so many kids were to wear a helmet.

Grow Cycling Foundation was founded by Eliot and his mother.

Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. and Eliot Jackson make it official.

Big scissors for a big day

Local legend and BMX champion Anthony Freeman was on hand for the ceremony to highlight the impact cycling has had on his life and career.

The Grow Cycling Foundation is a family accomplishment.

Modest and thankful sums up what Eliot had to say to the community.

Mayor Butts shares what impact facilities like this bring to the community as well as the surrounding cities. As a resident for most of his life, he knows that the community will only grow stronger and give more members an opportunity to thrive.

This Inglewood Bakery Maintains a Firm Red Velvet Frosted Hold on South LA

MostMost people traveling on Prairie Avenue between Manchester and Century Boulevard likely find themselves staring at the massive SoFi Stadium. The Inglewood entertainment complex at Hollywood Park is where fans pay high ticket prices to see Beyoncé or Taylor Swift perform, and now that football season has landed, the streets surrounding SoFi swarm with Rams and Chargers fans. But long before that multi-billion-dollar project broke ground, loyal locals formed their own crowds directly across the street while waiting in line at Sweet Red Peach bakery.

Owner Karolyn Plummer enjoys plenty of support from Inglewood regulars who consistently empty her inventory of blue velvet, carrot, or German chocolate layer cakes, sweet potato pie, cupcakes, peach cobbler, banana pudding cheesecake, or the classic dessert beloved by the Black community: 7 Up cake. Plummer, a former teacher turned baker, first started the business back in 2000. Though she loved teaching at Compton Unified School District, she repurposed her retirement funds to launch a longtime dream. After preparing baked goods for her family and selling them at local events, Plummer found that her best sellers were sweet potato pie, red velvet, and peach cobbler. She combined the first three words and knew the business name right away: Sweet Red Peach.

“When I started, I just really loved baking,” says Plummer. “But it’s scary. Starting out on your own is surreal. And after all these years, it still hasn’t hit me yet. I just go in and do what I love.”

In 2019, Plummer took over the vacant space next door at the Holly Park Plaza, which was supposed to be an attached cafe. Renovations were nearly complete on Plummer’s conversion when the City of Inglewood announced plans to convert adjacent businesses and the strip mall itself into a 1.6-mile people mover rail track to connect Metro’s K Line to attractions like SoFi, Hollywood Park, future Intuit Dome, and other sites for the 2028 Olympics. Inglewood mayor James T. Butts Jr. told KTLA that the affected businesses would receive a generous relocation package and help in finding a new place to operate.

Plummer says that, while she’s sad to lose her original space, she has no intention of leaving Inglewood and is still searching for a new home nearby. In the meantime, she opened a Riverside County location in Menifee, where visitors can also count on a regular queue, especially on weekends. As soon as Plummer opened the doors in early July, she found ample support from locals.

Sweet Red Peach and other longtime restaurants are witnessing a lightning-fast change in Inglewood. Some restaurant owners harbored a longtime concern they would not survive long enough to see the benefits of investment. Unfortunately for some SoFi-adjacent businesses, their worries proved to be correct. Bourbon Street Fish Grill closed permanently two years ago, while Ms B’s M& M Soul Food was evicted and relocated in 2021.

As Inglewood remains a complicated prospect for some, Plummer is confident she’ll reopen within the city limits when the time is right. She’ll also debut another location in Torrance’s Del Amo Fashion Center sometime next year. On the East Coast, Sweet Red Peach Atlanta has one franchise location open, with a second on the way.

Amid business expansion, Plummer is eager to talk about the baked good she loves to prepare the most: Sweet Red Peach’s red velvet cake. “That’s my absolute favorite,” says Plummer. “It’s always going to be the number one in my heart and I think I kind of mastered that one. It’s like picking your favorite kid. It’s the first cake I fell in love with.”
