TESTIMONIALS

“I have worked with more home health agencies than I care to remember, both in GA and MI, when I worked in healthcare; and I have to say that Always Best Care is one of the best home health care agencies that I have found since the early 90’s !!! I have been a client with Always Best Care since February 2022 and I have been extremely pleased with the help I have received both from my caregivers and the office staff. All the staff work hard and the quality of care is exceptional!!! The few occasions that I didn’t like a caregiver because of either poor work ethic or personality, Always Best Care always took care of finding another caregiver to better meet my needs ASAP!! When I first started with Always Best Care I did get a few caregivers that weren’t a good fit. But, within a very short period of time my scheduler learned my specific needs and personality and she found caregivers for me that were a wonderful match!! As in every area of healthcare, the high turnover of employees is to be expected!!! But, Always Best Care has always made sure that I have a new caregiver that matches my needs and expectations!! I have and would, highly recommend Always Best Care for your home health daily care!!”

“We used ABC several years ago for my dad, after he had a stroke. I called a few months ago to set up a care plan for my elderly mom. She had a hip replaced, and lives alone. I knew we would feel better having someone there to help her and visit with her until she could get up and around on her own. ABC works through our scheduling nightmares (mom tends to send people home early, and tell them not to come back)….and they have been SO patient with our ever changing and increasing needs for mom. Their response time and communication are impeccable!!”

“Overall a great company to work for! They do a wonderful job recognizing caregivers; from big recognition like a monthly caregiver award and random drawings, to small recognition such as any time you visit the office you are free to grab snacks, beverages, gear and more often than not there is some type of food they have ordered that is available. They really don’t hold back in this area! There has been quite a bit of changes made in office positions within the last year. Response time, outside of the scheduling department, can be improved upon.”

TESTIMONIALS

“I’ve had caregivers for about 5 years now. Only having been disappointed and frustrated. Since Always Best Care came into my life, my worries have ended. I never knew if previous caregivers were going to show up, or do what I needed. Everytime they would complete a task, they would sit down and be on their phone. Kari and Jamisha finish a task and right to the next. No problems. My mind has been put at ease. They are very professional yet so so friendly. They ask, what else they can do for me. I also have my ABC emergency call button. Now I have peace of mind if an emergency should arise. My case coordinator Stephanie Stevens. Stays right on top of my case. Thank you so much for making my life easier. I have recommended your company to others that may need assistance in the future.”

TESTIMONIALS

“They were my mother’s caretakers up until we moved away to seek life saving treatment. It was hard for them at times, because sometimes the homecare aides sometimes called off last minute. One time something came up missing, and the owner personally delivered a replacement. They’re not perfect but they try their best.”

FAQs About Our Senior Care Services

Female-Caregiver-Mobile Female-Caregiver-Desktop

It’s becoming more and more common for families to live far apart from each other, and leaving an elderly relative alone at home can be a major source of anxiety if you’re not nearby. Always Best Care provides the reassurance you need that your loved ones are safe and happy, with a compassionate caregiver available in case of an emergency. We’ll help them handle their daily tasks so that you can manage your own life with confidence and peace of mind. In addition, home care is often considered a healthier and more affordable option for families when compared to long-term nursing facilities.

Choosing an in-home senior care provider can be a daunting task. However, there are a few guidelines to keep in mind. First, ask your friends and family for recommendations. If you’re unable to get any suggestions, search for local and state organizations that recognize the best providers in the industry. Doing so can help narrow down a shortlist of home care agencies. Next, set up meetings with your top choices and ensure that they meet your criteria. Don’t forget to ask your senior for their opinion, too. Doing so will help you make an informed home care decision.

When hiring an in-home care provider, it’s important to ensure that they are insured to protect you and your loved one. Always Best Care not only provides our clients with insurance coverage but also Worker’s Compensation. That way, in the unlikely event that an accident occurs while a caregiver is working in your loved one’s home, you are protected against any claims or damages. These protections not only benefit you and your loved one, but also directly benefit our caregivers, enabling us to attract some of the most skilled and compassionate individuals for Home Care in Mishawaka.

In the mid-90s, Always Best Care founder Michael Newman grew frustrated by the lack of resources available for seniors in his community. That frustration helped him shape a vision: to create a home care company that would provide trusted care, compassionate support, and professional advice for seniors and their loved ones. In 1996, Michael channeled his frustration into founding Always Best Care, which has since become one of the nation’s leading providers of in-home care for seniors. Today, people with passion continue to make Always Best Care what it is today. While times may change, our company’s commitment to compassionate home care will always remain the same.

To provide the best home care in Mishawaka, we believe that it’s crucial for seniors and their caregivers to build a strong relationship that is fortified with trust. Without it, all parties can suffer. However, at Always Best Care, our caregivers are allowed requested vacations. There may also be times when caregivers become ill. In such cases, a substitute caregiver takes responsibility for your loved one’s care. We inform the substitute caregiver about all your loved one’s likes and dislikes to minimize disruptions. If additional care is required in the morning, afternoon, and evening, we will do our best to accommodate.

We understand that many seniors can lead mostly independent lives, but occasionally they may need assistance. At Always Best Care, we’re thrilled when we can schedule a caregiver in a very short turnaround. That’s why we’re happy to offer part-time in-home care for seniors in Mishawaka. Our team of compassionate caregivers can be `available to assist your senior loved one morning, noon, and night.

Our home care providers in Mishawaka can assist with a wide range of services to help your senior live a fulfilling, independent life at home. Some of our most requested home care services include the following:

• Light Housekeeping
• Medication Reminders
• Community Activity Escorts
• Companionship
• Meal Prep
• Nutrition Monitoring
• Incontinence Care
• Transportation and Errand Running
• Dressing and Grooming

Contact our Always Best Care office today to learn more about the additional home care services we offer.

We believe that safety is one of the most important aspects of home care in Mishawaka. As such, we train our caregivers to assess your senior loved one’s home to identify any potential hazards that could lead to accidents. Before providing in-home care services, we will perform a safety assessment of your loved one’s property to identify ways to make their home safer. This may include introducing grab rails in hallways or showers or making other small changes. To ensure ongoing safety measures are met, your caregiver will continue to monitor your senior’s mobility and recommend any necessary equipment or technology to make their life easier and safer.

Yes. We understand that, with time, a senior’s home care needs can change. If they do, your Care Coordinator will be there to re-evaluate and adjust your non-medical home care services in Mishawaka as needed.

Our senior home care providers in Mishawaka are dedicated to delivering compassionate, exceptional care. That dedication often translates to specialized training and preferred areas of focus. Please don’t hesitate to inform us of any unique health needs or requirements your loved one has during your care consultation with Always Best Care.

Learn about our FSSA grant

FSSA is issuing Always Best Care-Michiana funding to support our direct service workforce. We plan to use the funding in the following 3 ways to invest in our DSWs: 1. Incentive bonuses: To provide immediate support to our workforce, we plan to issue bonuses to DSWs. We will dedicate 30% of the grant amount towards this activity. We will issue the bonus on 2/17/2023. Employees can expect to receive the funding through December 2023. 2. Retention Activities: Additional Training, Speciality Certifications, CNA Training, skills training. We will dedicate 40% of the grant amount towards this activity. We will issue the bonus on 03/3/2023. 3. Transportation Vouchers: To relieve some of the pressure of increased cost of travel, we will issue transportation vouchers to help pay for gas, travel, and other car related expenses. We will dedicate 30% of the grant amount towards this activity. To issue the vouchers, we implement a payment plan. Timing wise, our goal is to use the funding as soon as possible so that we can provide immediate funding to support our workforce. We are aiming to spend all funding by 12/31/23. Please reach out to Danielle Loupee with any question regarding how the funds will be spent.
