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.


“Other ABC provides a person to cook and do laundry for my mother. The people I have spoken to at the agency have been extremely helpful but more importantly kind and understanding. I have gotten quick responses to any inquiries I have made. The caregiver has been more than flexible and provides reliable help for my mother. I am feeling confident my mother is getting quality care to help her stay in her home.”


“We appreciate all that you did and would have loved to have Seth with us longer than we did. This was very sudden and in Gods hands I guess. Her last meal was the pasta you made. We tried it too.

“Dear Rick, Over the past three plus years, my father Joseph Ceuch has lived at home assisted by the caregivers from your company Always Best Care of Greater Bristol. This letter is a personal thank you from my father and the entire Ceuch family on how your caregivers treated and attended to my father during this time. The caregivers became part of our extended family who shared in countless family events resulting in beautiful lasting memories. Caregivers Frances Boateng, Jeremy Turner, and Yanice Hernandez were awesome in their care of my father. I want to especially acknowledge Francis as a person who went above and beyond his responsibility and became part of the Ceuch inner circle. It was not uncommon for Francis on his off days to stop by during a family picnic to say hello...he is truly loved by my father. Again, I want to thank you for the loving care your caregivers provided my father. I would highly recommend your company to anyone interested in having a caregiver attend to a loved one. Thanks again”

“Heather, I just wanted to thank Always Best Care in helping to provide care for my step father, Daryl. It's unbelievable how the progression of his illness happened so quickly, however, Always Best Care was always ready to provide the level of care he needed as it increased. Most importantly, I'd like to thank his aide, Sue Malasics. She was wonderful to Daryl and took great care of his needs. I knew I did not have to worry with Sue there with him. She was always cooking wonderful homemade meals and desserts and I was happy to see how happy she made Daryl. I think she is a wonderful asset to Always Best Care. Should I know of anyone needing help in the future, I would recommend Always Best Care and Sue Malasics.”

Dorothy W.

“Our sister, Barbara has early-onset dementia , and was in sudden need of a personal care assistant until placement in a quality skilled nursing facility became available. We reached out to home health care agencies in her local area but, by this point, had already worked with several agencies for med reminders for Barbara (and 24/7 care for our Mom in another area of CT) and were a bit skeptical that that we’d find one that could provide consistent quality of care.When I spoke with Rick Downey of Always Best Care Senior Services in Bristol, he conveyed both confidence in his knowledge of health care and empathy in understanding the frustrations that families experience when seeking quality care for their loved ones. We were next contacted by their care coordinator,Heather Kozikowski, who came to our sister’s home to conduct an assessment and further explain the services offered by Always Best Care.A further testament to the exceptional quality of Always Best Care is the service and care we’ve received after Barbara is no longer a client; our thanks to Always Best Care for the excellent care of our sister, and the peace-of-mind it afforded our family knowing that she was in such kind and competent hands!”

On a Saturday morning in October of 2015, a sudden change in my health required an emergent hospitilization, which late resulted in an extensive rehabilitation stay. Upon my hospitalization, my son reached out to Always Best Care Senior Services of greater Bristol.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Montgomeryville, PA?


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.

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. 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.

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 Montgomeryville, PA, 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 Montgomeryville, PA

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 PA'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 Montgomeryville, PA

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 Montgomeryville, PA 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 Montgomeryville, PA

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 Montgomeryville, PA

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.

Home Care Montgomeryville, PA

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 Montgomeryville, PA

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 Montgomeryville, PA 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. Our Care Coordinators would be happy to meet with you in person to get to know you better, discuss your needs, and help put together a personalized Care Plan specific to your needs.

Former Army-Navy Near Five Points to be Replaced by Car Wash Following Demolition

They are going to raze history and put up a new car wash.The historic 100-year-old two-story stone structure at 739 Bethlehem Pike, which served for four decades as the Montgomery Township Consolidated School and later became the site of a fabric store and Montgomeryville Army-Navy, is being bulldozed currently for a new 3,600-square-foot membership-driven car wash with 23 spaces and double-lane capacity for 16 vehicles.Following a public hearing before Montgomery Township Boar...

They are going to raze history and put up a new car wash.

The historic 100-year-old two-story stone structure at 739 Bethlehem Pike, which served for four decades as the Montgomery Township Consolidated School and later became the site of a fabric store and Montgomeryville Army-Navy, is being bulldozed currently for a new 3,600-square-foot membership-driven car wash with 23 spaces and double-lane capacity for 16 vehicles.

Following a public hearing before Montgomery Township Board of Supervisors in February 2022, Caliber Capital LLC, of Atlanta, received unanimous land development approval to demolish the existing 46,914-square-foot building and construct a new 3,680-square-foot one-story Caliber Car Wash with associated drive aisles, vehicle stacking, and parking. The approval also tagged on some contingencies, such as always having three or more staff members on site and giving easements to make entrances and exits onto Bethlehem Pike and Horsham Road.

The current sight of the one-acre site near Five Points now leaves a sting in the eyes of many Montgomery Township Historical Society members, and even former students.

“Kindergarten, first grade and second grades here for me,” wrote Deb Kinsella on the Knapp Farm – Montgomery Township Historical Society Facebook post on the demolition. “Walked up three fields every school day and the Hespell cousins caught up with the Kreischer cousins on the way. My dad and uncles went here before us. Even had some of the same teachers as us. The building was made from Hespell’s Montgomery Stone Quarry. Many good memories.”

“Went to school here for four years. Loved this school. We had the best playground,” wrote Joanne MacLaughlin Lupino.

According to Montgomery Township Historical Society’s (MTHS) Fall 2021 newsletter, the history of the building begins Feb. 27, 1771, when Mordicai Moore, Edward Bartholomew, and John Ambler were chosen as trustees for the Free School of Montgomery Township. The first teacher, per the newsletter, was Abram Shoemaker, appointed April 15, 1789, and who was paid 50 pounds (39 of it in gold and silver) per year to teach school.

“After the Revolutionary War, the Continental currency had collapsed and was considered worthless. Even though the first US mint opened in 1783, it appears that British currency was still being used in our area until at least the early 1800s,” stated the newsletter article.

The Battle of Gettysburg hero and 1880 Democratic Presidential nominee Winfield Scott Hancock’s father, B.F. Hancock, taught at the school from 1823 to 1826, per the historical society.

In addition to the Free School in Montgomery Square — the current home of Buckman’s Ski Shop on Bethlehem Pike — two other small schoolhouses were opened: the Montgomeryville School on Cowpath Road and the Horsham Road School. Both buildings still exist and are now private homes, according to the society.

The consolidated school building opened in 1923, according to MTHS Board member Sue Gordon and President Lisa Siegel, and the former three one-room schoolhouses used at the turn of the century were auctioned two years later.

When North Penn School District was formed in 1956, the consolidated school continued to house students. It would not be until 1965 when Montgomery Elementary School opened that its decades as an educational facility were over.

“It took that long to approve and build the new school,” said Gordon.

As the decades continued, the building became a gathering spot for a teen center, before Montgomeryville Fabric Center opened on the second floor, and Montgomeryville Army-Navy Store opened in the basement. The stores vacated the premises in the early 2000s and the historic property became the easel for graffiti artists and vandals.

At time of hearing, Caliber Capital LLC was the appellant, and Provco Pineville 309 Partners LP of Villanova was the owner, according to public hearing documents.

According to Montgomery County property records, the $537,470-assessed parcel was sold six months after land development approval to National Retail Properties Trust for $2.25 million by Caliber Montgomeryville OP Company LLC. On the same day, according to property records, Provco Pineville 309 Partners LP sold it to Caliber Montgomeryville OP Company for $2 million. It had been owned by Isaac Friedman since 1983, selling in 2011 for $955,000.

According to its website, National Retail Properties Trust, now known as NNN REIT Inc., touts 121 Mister Car Wash properties as one of its top tenants in its retail real estate portfolio.

According to public documents, Caliber describes itself as a “membership-driven premium express car wash company that was formed with a mission to provide customers with a car wash that meets the highest caliber of standards.” The first car wash opened in Florida in 2019, before expanding up the East Coast.

The parcel is zoned C-Commercial, which permits automatic and self-serve car washes by conditional use. Caliber Capital received conditional use approval after December 2021. According to township documents, the site will be accessed via a shared connecting driveway with the parcel to its south, using the existing right-in/right-out access point from northbound Bethlehem Pike/Route 309. There will also be right-in/right-out access from eastbound Horsham Road/Route 463.

Caliber believes the site is the appropriate location for a car wash and the use “is consistent with the spirit and intent of the general conditional use standards and criteria contained in the Montgomery Township Zoning Ordinance.”

The development of the site is contrary to what the township defined in its 2008 Comprehensive Plan, and the Montgomery County Planning Commission even made mention of it in its report to the township on the project.

“While this proposal on its own will not make or break the success of a possible town center master planned area, the township should strongly consider reassessing the suitability of this area for a town center during its ongoing comprehensive plan update process,” stated the county planners.

According to the township 2008 Comprehensive Plan vision, the triangular-shaped area bordered by Bethlehem Pike, Horsham Road and North Wales Road at Five Points was identified as a future site for a town center, with “one or more small public open spaces, at least one major public attraction … mixed uses including retail, be pedestrian-friendly and have attractive streetscapes.”

Furthermore, the county’s own Montco 2040 comprehensive plan identified the area as part of a future regional mixed-use center along Bethlehem Pike. County planners said the car wash project “is compatible with Montco 2040's goal of redeveloping older retail properties.”

Carol Felbim • [email protected] 12, 2023 • I taught at the Montgomeryville school from 1956 to 1958. I bought the former Jarrettown Elementary School. Always thought the Montgomeryville School would have made a great child’s museum. So sad to see it go. Started my teaching career there and loved it!
