Home Care Scottsdale, AZ

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 Mother and Child - the Donkeys 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 Scottsdale, AZ is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

“I had a wonderful experience with this company providing home aids during a post-op recovery period of six weeks. I can't say enough about how professional, knowledgeable, friendly, courteous, punctual, responsive, skilled, discreet, and just great to have around a few hours per week during my home stay. Everything I needed done was done without question or complaining or unnecessary comments. And, with a great attitude! They were truly there to help and it was very comfortable having the aids in my home. They did so much to help my recovery go smoothly. I highly recommend Always Best Care and wouldn't hesitate to use their services again should the need arise.”

“Always Best Care of Mesa is very easy to work with. The owner, John, made us feel very good. The caregivers themselves are extremely good, and we're very happy with them. They are very receptive and always asking what they can do to help out. They are always willing to do anything that we've asked them to do, and they're very personable when talking to my dad when he needs someone to talk to. They provide basic assistance like preparing meals, cleaning around the house, helping with my dad's hygiene, and other non-medical assistance. The agency is extremely flexible in changing schedules when needed, and very responsive whenever I have questions. They are a very good agency and I highly recommend them.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Scottsdale, AZ?

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 Scottsdale, AZ
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 Cafe Monarch or visit Taliesin West, 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 Scottsdale, AZ, 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 Scottsdale, AZ

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 AZ'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 Scottsdale, AZ

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 Scottsdale, AZ 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 Scottsdale, AZ

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 Scottsdale, AZ

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:

  • Belmont Village Senior Living Scottsdale
  • Assisted Living of Scottsdale
  • Pinnacle Peak Assisted Living
  • Manor On Paradise - Assisted Senior Living
  • Central Scottsdale Assisted Living by MD Senior Living
  • Via Linda Assisted Living
Home Care Scottsdale, AZ

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

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

Family-owned Pinnacle Brewing Company is opening a new craft brewery in north Scottsdale in early 2024.

Located at the corner of Hayden Road and North 82nd Street, the brewery was named after Pinnacle Peak and, according to the website, is a reminder of the family's mindset of striving to reach their peak.

The brewery is being opened by Bob, Mary and their son Wyatt Wilson, a graduate of Olds College’s Brewmaster & Brewery Operations Management program in Alberta, Canada. His experience includes stints at award-winning craft breweries like Dust Bowl Brewing Company in California and Monkless Belgian Ales in Oregon.

"Our classic styles honor the rich traditions of Czechia, Germany and Belgium, while our newer styles will be my interpretation based on what I’ve learned from several of the best brewers in the USA," Wyatt said in a press release.

What to expect at Pinnacle Brewery Co.

The 4,300-square-foot space will include an indoor dining area, outdoor beer garden and a covered patio. The design uses glass, wood and steel to give it a mountain lodge feel reminiscent of Wyatt’s experiences in Canada and northern Colorado.

There will be 16 taps with the majority of them rotating through new styles.

Though the taproom will not offer food, they plan to host a variety of food trucks.

The taproom is slated to open in early 2024.

Details: 15111 N. Hayden Road, Unit 100, Scottsdale. 602-341-5059, pinnaclebrewing.com.

They’ve been collecting gloves, balls and bats for kids in need in the Dominican Republic.

They quickly realized that the same need existed in Arizona communities.

Baseball is a beautiful sport.

It teaches teamwork, discipline and patience.

For a couple of kids in Scottsdale, it’s becoming the most rewarding experience of their lives.

Baseball is everything to 16-year-old Ryan Penney.

Throwing with his dad, the Chapparal High pitcher says his older brother is now playing college ball in New Hampshire.

They’ve played in big game, but none bigger than on a littered field with young kids in the Dominican Republic.

"It was amazing just seeing the kids' faces being on the island and experiencing and seeing them play baseball. Playing baseball against these kids was just priceless," Ryan Penney with Home2First Foundation said.

A few years back, the family started the Home2First foundation after seeing the need there. They placed donation boxes of used baseball gear in a Cold Beers and Cheeseburgers restaurant.

When they brought their first donations in 2021, Penney saw how big the need was.

"It’s just a shared helmet for a team, and they’re used to it. They’re grateful for what they have. A lot of shared gloves, torn plastic bottles for shoes. Very minimal, just not good equipment, not good at all," Penney said.

Each kid got donated gloves, bats, helmets and gear. Then they realized they saw similar scenes closer to home.

"There’s a lot of need here, too. A lot of financially challenged communities here in Arizona," Penney said.

In the last three years, they’ve donated thousands of pounds of equipment locally and to the DR. They have started giving out scholarships for club teams.

"Work hard in school, work hard in school just can’t afford to pay," Penney said.

‘It’s really rewarding, and I’m really grateful’

Sports are a universal language, and for Penney, it’s been a rewarding language to learn.

"Super fun. It can take a lot of work to put together, takes a lot to put all these drives together, but it’s really rewarding and I’m really grateful," he said.

They’re not done finding ways to help.

Now they’re trying to raise money for the kids in the Dominican Republic to receive extra help with education, including English courses.

Dutch semiconductor company announces $300 million expansion in Scottsdale

PHOENIX — Dutch semiconductor equipment company ASM is investing more than $320 million to expand its U.S. headquarters in Scottsdale.

The money will be spent over five years to build a 20-acre research, development and engineering facility on the corner of Loop 101 and Scottsdale Road. It will bring more than 500 jobs to the area.

“The facility will be home to research, development and engineering activities, as well as our global training center, software team and corporate support functions,” ASM CEO Benjamin Loh said.

Loh was joined by company executives, Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega, Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs and Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte at the announcement ceremony Tuesday at WestWorld of Scottsdale.

ASM was one of the first semiconductors companies to begin operations in Arizona. The company’s ties go all the way back to 1976 when ASM first established its North American headquarters in Phoenix. Loh said he wants to build on ASM’s legacy in Arizona and prepare the company for the next decades. ASM employs more than 800 people in Arizona and that number has doubled since 2019. Its Arizona facilities are its largest research and development hub worldwide.

“The many innovations we pioneered in Arizona have found their way into computers, phones, medical equipment like MRI scanners, data centers, cars and AI applications everywhere,” Loh said.

Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs spoke at the event and said Arizona is quickly becoming an epicenter for sustainable technologies. Hobbs said there have been more than 32 semiconductors expansions in the state in fewer than two years. Investments that will strengthen U.S. supply chains, bring billions to the state and create good paying jobs for everyday Arizonans.

“ASM’s enhanced research and development operations in Arizona will catalyze innovation, bolstering our already booming manufacturing eco system,” Hobbs said. The governor said we can expect more foreign investments to Arizona for chip manufacturing.

Prime Minister Rutte also spoke at the event, along with the Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy Micky Adriaansens. Arizona Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly did not attend the event but sent in video statements throwing their support behind the expansion.

Scottsdale Public Art's newest exhibition, “COLORLOVE,” running Oct. 10 to Dec. 31 at Scottsdale Civic Center Library, celebrates the power of the full rainbow of colors.

Throughout history, humanity has examined, philosophized, questioned and celebrated the full spectrum of color. Distinct colors can affect our moods in myriad ways: the peacefulness of blue, the intensity of orange, the wisdom of purple and the fresh promise of green.

Wendy Raisanen, curator of collections and exhibitions for Scottsdale Public Art, hopes the exhibition will encourage viewers to think deeply about color.

“I've always been interested in the psychology of color. Which colors make us feel energized or calm?” Raisanen asked. “We are all affected by color through artwork, our clothing and the walls of buildings. I love saturated, intense colors; they just make my brain happy.”

Artist and co-curator of “COLORLOVE” Lex Gjurasic is known as much for her love of color as for her artistic philosophy of “Radical Happiness,” which is, in her words, the “sacred act of choosing joy in the face of oppression and challenges.”

“Colors and how they interact together has always been at the forefront of my creative process,” Gjurasic said. “While others may shy from the vibrational interplay of colors, I embrace that visual enthusiasm and lean into it. I can't imagine a creative process without the patterns and interplay of color. For me, a world without color is a world void of emotion.”

For Gjurasic, there is nothing more joyful than one's own emotional response to color. An Arizona transplant, originally from the “dreary” Pacific Northwest, Gjurasic now finds personal solace in the intense psychedelic neon colors of the desert that she sees in her mind's eye when she closes her eyes after staring directly at the sun. Gjurasic invites viewers into her vision of the world through the eyes of artists living and working in the arid desert. She presents two artworks in the exhibition: “Wet Grass 1” and “Enjoy Yourself, Take Only What You Need.”

John David Yanke, another artist featured in “COLORLOVE,” is a painter and sculptor who exhibits his work locally and nationwide. His artwork “As Things Go” is informed by the intensely hued imagery of his sculptures that use manipulated bed springs, which also refer to compositions in music.

“I remember my past through color because it triggers emotions I've lost, either intentionally or out of some imagined fright — fear coddling memory,” Yanke said. “My soul seems to digest and express those last sentences better through layered forms, shapes and colors.”

After creative careers with Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, mural painting and remodeling homes, Yanke now teaches upper-level drawing and painting and is an academic counselor for an Arizona high school.

“COLORLOVE” will run from Jan. 8 through March 30 at the Civic Center Public Gallery, inside Scottsdale Civic Center Library, 3948 N. Drinkwater Blvd., Scottsdale, AZ 85251.

In addition to the exhibition itself, there will be an opening reception to meet the artists from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 11, 2024, at the Civic Center Public Gallery.

Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation has also organized two creative workshops in association with this exhibition. All Things Color! invites participants to create a fun desert landscape painting with Arizona-based artist Jackson Kloog on Feb. 22 at 4:30 p.m. On Thursday, March 28 at 4:30 p.m., guests can join local artists in the hands-on Natural Pigment Workshop, which allows participants to play with dirt and process it into watercolor paint.

Both workshops are free, but RSVP is required. They will be presented at Scottsdale Civic Center Library. Learn more about the exhibition, workshops and reception at ScottsdalePublicArt.org/events.
