“My mother has been bedridden for over three years now. Always Best Care has taken wonderful care of her in these years. The management has a real desire to give care that is consistent with how they’d want their own family attended to. I appreciate the training they provide to the caregivers and the quick response to any of our concerns. It’s been a great partnership.”

Peggy M.

“Always Best Care has been an excellent partner in assisting my mother with caring for my elderly father. They are amazingly responsive. I have a single point of contact number (for Melanie), and I get an almost immediate response from her irrespective of what day or time I call/text. I have reached out at 11pm or later; I have reached out on weekends; I have reached out during holidays. In each instance Melanie has responded either immediately or within 5 minutes. They work to build a partnership. I stopped by the office unannounced recently to discuss a coverage issue that had arisen over the holidays. A new caregiver called out twice. (I would like to note that the coverage issues that arose over the holidays were highly unusual and very much outside the norm for ABC.) Sanjay, Anthony, and Melanie took an unplanned 45 minutes to sit with me and discuss my concerns and to outline the plan they had been discussing that very day to ensure we had no further issues. I do not expect any organization to never have any difficulties. The scale by which I measure an organization is 1) Does the organization take ownership of the issue? and 2) Does the organization proactively work to address the issue? ABC scores high on both these vectors. I have recommended ABC both to a coworker and to a close friend. I will continue to recommend them.”

Craig J.

“Sanjay and his staff do amazing work. For your home care needs, give them a call and they will take care of you. Keep up the great work!”

Steven J.

“SanJay and his staff do a wonderful job explaining Senior Care. He was really helpful in Dementia information. He has a tremendous amount of resources to provide.”

Patrick O.

“An excellent service, always responsive & provide very compassionate care. Sanjay takes a personal interest in finding the best fit for each client & I’ve always experienced him treating clients like family. I work for Heartland Hospice and when families I’m working with need a trusted caregiver for this fragile time of life, they have always been there – available to meet in person and start care extremely fast.”

Jessica H.

“ABC is absolutely amazing! The staff is very caring and very friendly. always go above and beyond. They have great communication between Clients and Staff.”

Rebecca G.

“Always Best went above and beyond to help us navigate a family crisis, and we literally could not have done it without them. Everyone we worked with was caring, patient and responsive.”

Kelley F.

“Sanjay and ABCSS were outstanding to work with. Sanjay walked us through not only their options but gave me his personal observations and suggestions. Day 1 they were there for us and our father. Sanjay was there and spent time with Dad. Top notch service. Thank you.”

Michael H.

“I called on a Monday & had a care giver on Tuesday. The caregivers are always on time. Asking if there are any changes to the schedule. They fix her lunch every day and do the dishes. Amy is very attentive to my mother. She ensures she does her exercises like she is supposed to a d even does then with her. The care they give has greatly reduced my stress.”


“We called Sanjay to help us find an assisted living facility for our mom when her health took a sudden turn for the worse. His compassion and care for our parents in the past and actually for the whole family unit told us he would help us find the perfect place for her. Well he did – he sought out the perfect place which is amazing – Spring Arbor. Not only did he meet us at a couple of places on his time – he visited our mom at the rehab center she was at – again on his own time. He gives his all to the entire family unit and helps you through the entire process till the end. We will be forever grateful for his help and compassion throughout this stressful time in our lives. Knowing our mom is in such a warm loving environment as Spring Arbor gives us total peace of mind and for that we are eternally grateful!”

Janeen D.

“ABC are awesome people. They are just like their name… The best”


“Always Best Care Senior Services not only provides clients with personal care needs, but also with companionship. Our goal is to keep our clients safe and to give them the best care possible by meeting each clients needs specifically. I have recommended this company for new clients as well as for new caregivers. I have had a very pleasant experience working for this company. The office staff works great together to help with assessments and scheduling needs for each client. ABC staff and caregivers really go above and beyond to provide assistance to their clients.”

Caitlin P.

“this company is fantastic, love the people and the hours and they felxability they have to your life schedule”


“When we first started with Always Best Care, it was just to have somebody come visit mom once a week at assisted-living they care whatever needed to be done, going with her on errands and so on. They were great. Their support really became important, however, when mom fractured her pelvis. I texted Sanjay, the CEO and they were at the hospital with CMTs as soon as she got her room. That was important, because mom was not entirely aware that she had fractured her pelvis, would keep trying to get up, and the hospital had not yet resourced a sitter. They also provided in room sitter services for mom when she was in rehab, at a facility they helped us down-select to. Then, when she was released from rehab, they helped locate a micro-community that provided Mom with the extra support she needed, after discussing the issues we needed to work through via conference call when there was more than could be managed via txt or email. I live out of state, so we could not have done this without them. Sanjay and team really care about the patient, and were always available. They have my highest recommendation. -WRJ, Raleigh NC”


“I don’t know what I would have done without Sanjay helping me and my family through one of the most difficult times of our lives. My mother was gravely ill and had been hospitalized for 8 months, totally bedridden. I needed to move my Dad to the area, needed to find a place where Mom could get the best in physical rehab and had no idea where to start. He sorted through the options, made visits with me, met my Dad and visited my Mom in the hospital while she was recovering. He went above and beyond and I can’t thank him enough for guiding me through the maze of Senior care options and getting them to where they needed to be. I would never have been able to do it without him.”

Margaret S.

“Sanjay has been an absolute Godsend to work with in getting my grandmother transitioned happily to an independent living community. He has been ever so prompt and attentive to our needs and wants and through the very end has made sure to not only follow up but go above and beyond even after the ink had dried on the contracts. I am so grateful that he came so highly referred by a financial planner friend of mine and I will no doubt continue to sing his praises to anyone and everyone that I meet in need of a wonderful “senior living real estate agent” as I have so fondly dubbed him.”

Jennifer B.

“EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT! Finding a home for your elderly loved one is extremely emotional and daunting! Asking questions you never thought you would be asking. The hundreds of places you could visit. If this is you, I would highly recommend calling Sanjay Das. Sanjay, visited my home, and over the next few days had long conversations, with both my husband and myself to determine what we “thought”our loved one needs were. And after much consideration, and using all of his resources, Sanjay recommend several places. Together With Sanjay, we toured them all and in the end, we decided on something completely different then the very first community we viewed. Sanjay was able to change mid stream, and help us to understand what Mom’s needs truly were. We started a whole new search with new criteria. Sanjay was knowledgeable, very soft spoken, kind and respectful. He was extremely patient and would give up until he found the perfect home for Mom. Thank you Sanjay. Dina Pahl”

Dina P.

“My mother recently moved into an Assisted Living facility in Cary. This has been a difficult journey for mom and our family, and I honestly don’t know what we would have done without Sanjay Das. He has been with us every step of the way for the past four months. He arranged and accompanied us on visits to many area facilities, answered countless questions we had, was available to my mom and us literally 24/7, and helped us walk through the maze of details in getting mom settled. He has gone above and beyond the call of duty to a degree one rarely sees, and his kindness, efficiency, and professionalism are unparallelled. I am pretty picky about customer service and I don’t normally rave about things, but I can’t say enough good things about Sanjay and how important his help has been to us. He has actually kind of become our family’s hero and I wholeheartedly recommend him.”

Kaye S.

“I want to thank Sanjay and Always Best Care for always going above and beyond to exceed expectations. I live out of state and had an emergency situation with my mother who needed immediate care with no notice. No other provider could rise to the occasion on short notice, but Sanjay was able to fill the need by providing 24 hour care that evening and consistently thereafter while my mother was recovering. He went above and beyond by treating my mother like one of his family, and made constant communication standard operating procedure. He also informed me of services that were beneficial to my mother which were beyond the scope of those offered by his firm. He delivers service with empathy and care that focuses first and always on the person in need and the person’s family! I highly recommend Sanjay and Always Best Care for all elder care needs.”

Bob C.

“A neighbor across the street suggested I call “Always Best Care” after my husband fell. They were helpful when I needed hourly care for him at home. When I could not longer keep him at home, they helped me a lot looking for a facility. Sanjay and Cheryl went out of their way to help me. They stood by me through it ALL.”

Glo M.

“Although I have not had the need, personally, to call ABC for care I don’t doubt that that would be my first call should the need arise. I’ve had the privilege of having Sanjay as both my friend and colleague and so I have a lot of faith in his ability to provide both caring and service through ABC. For me, these are the two ingredients that I would expect and require. Recently, my neighbor was in need and so I recommended ABC and was able to observe how Sanjay responded. Even though he was just starting his business and was not yet able to place his care givers in the home he still spent a lot of time with my neighbor, offering guidance, caring, and comfort to assist them in getting the best care available. And that’s just who he is. Fortunately, now he has his license and is fully equipped to provide care.”

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 Raleigh.

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

Our home care providers in Raleigh 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 Raleigh. 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 Raleigh as needed.

Our senior home care providers in Raleigh 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.
