“I am a past client of this provider Five stars for Always Best Care of Peninsula? No! SIX STARS go to Angela, Ramon, and the gang in the field who make this agency top of the line. What makes it so special is their ability to place just the right skilled worker with the needy client. They all go the extra mile, and that is rare these days. And, finally … they actually return phone calls!”


“I am a current client of this provider Their customer service was excellent and they were able to find a fantastic caregiver on short notice without having to do a preliminary home study or anything. I needed someone for backup care for my mom for the next day and they were able to oblige. My mom loved the caregiver and I felt the management really cared about my mom as they gave me some information on her condition and some needs she had that were not being met.”


“I would highly recommend Always Best Care for your needs with your loved ones. I found the representative Angela extremely knowledgeable, professional, caring, understanding, and patient with my needs. The board and care homes that were shown to me for my uncle are excellent with professional staffing, clean, comfortable, and safe surroundings. Covid precautions were in place for the safety of everyone. I honestly can say I would have felt happy to check into one of the board and care homes myself.”

Ingrid L.

“Angela and her team have been helping me with my Dad for the last 4 years. As my Dad’s needs have changed ABC has come to my rescue. I started out needing someone to help me for a couple hours. We progressed to a point that my Dad needed 24 hr care. Angela provided around the clock care in my Dad’s home until his health stabilized. After his stabilization, Angela helped me find a wonderful Board & Care facility where my Dad has been living for two years. Last year, when I found that I could no longer take my Dad on outings by myself, Angela started sending Mark to accompany us on outings. ABC has been there for us every step of the way. I would not think twice about calling them for help and I would recommend them in an instant.”

Marie P.

“Shirley McElhattan is one of the best in this business! She truly cares about the families she helps and goes out of her way to make the transition into a home as easy as possible. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING WORK!!!”

Frank K.

“You can not get a better working partner than Angela Encarnacion From Best Care Senior Services. Her professionalism and caring attitude made it so smooth to place a new resident in our RCFE home, both for the family and us. It is such a difficult and challenging situation to transfer an elder to a Board and Care but she was the in between person that just made the move a huge success. I am so impressed how detail oriented, punctual and knowledgeable she is. Her experience just facilitates any transaction because she has already thought of what is needed and its already taken care of before the situation arises. Just fabulous! Can’t get Best Care Senior Services than what Angela offers!”

Fabian R.

“Angela the owner was so kind and helpful. She didn’t hesitate to reach out and help me with my dads needs. She felt like family, warm & kind, she wants the best care for her clients, actually she wants the best care for all.”

Rachel B.

“The people at ABC senior services did an excellent job of staffing up to assist us in caring for my aunt on a 24/7 schedule. The owner, Angela Encarnacion, is hands-on and worked hard to see that all of our needs were met. She has an excellent support person in Anna who manages staffing. All of my aunt’s caregivers were dedicated and responsible people who took their job seriously. Great job. Highly recommended.”

“I was in a very dark space when I was looking for a place for my mom and I was referred to you by our social worker at Kaiser and a young lady named Shannon called me and she came to meet with me and my mom and she was with me every step of the way from beginning to end to help find me a place for her. She was very in tune with our budget and the needs that I had for my mom and she did not stop until we found the perfect place this past February. I was crying and shaking and melting down on the day that I had to move my mom and I realized that I couldn’t do this on my own. So Shannon came over and she hugged me and she told me you don’t have to do this on your own! She gave my mom a bath and we packed her things and she took her on over to the place for me and then I came 2 hours later with my son. I will never forget Shannon and the help that she gave to me and my family. She knew what an emotional wreck I was and how I felt like there were dark clouds all over my house and she brought the light and the peace back to our home through Seniorly.”


“I am a past client of this provider ABC Senior Services did an excellent job staffing up to support my Aunt 24/7 in San Francisco. Everyone from the ownership, staffing management and the individual caregivers showed that they take their responsibilities seriously. No matter what day-of-the-week or time-of-day they were very responsive to our needs. Highly recommended.”


“I am a past client of this provider Their service was wonderful. They made a difficult time easy. Jerry helped us find a wonderful place quickly and efficiently. He gave us all the information and presented several options to choose from. Thank you so much.”

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 San Mateo.

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 San Mateo, 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 San Mateo. Our team of compassionate caregivers can be `available to assist your senior loved one morning, noon, and night.

Our home care providers in San Mateo 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 San Mateo. 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 San Mateo as needed.

Our senior home care providers in San Mateo 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.
