In the mid-1990’s, just outside of Sacramento, California, Michael Newman felt frustrated by the lack of resources for seniors in his community. An owner and operator of facilities for seniors, he saw many seniors and their loved ones arrive at his facilities confused and overwhelmed after trying to find the right assisted living community. This frustration eventually shaped his vision: To create a company that would serve seniors in the community by providing trusted care, compassionate support, and professional advice.
In 1996, Michael acted on his vision and founded Always Best Care. Since that time, Always Best Care has become one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care, senior living referral services and home health care. Always Best Care was formed with the belief and agenda of taking the burden off of the families’ shoulders and putting it on our own. People with passion have made Always Best Care what it is today. Although times may change, our foundation never will.
Michael Newman believes that a successful senior care company is built on successful relationships at every level, in all directions. The things that make every relationship work make business relationships work too – caring, trust, respect, and communication. These are the values that guide our relationships with our clients, franchisees, employees, vendors, our community, and everyone we touch. Caring relationships are the foundation of our work – a sincere concern for the betterment of life that goes beyond just doing what is required, but doing the most we can for the seniors entrusted to our care.
Always Best Care began franchising in 2007 and today provides services through a network of more than 225 franchised territories across the United States and Canada.
Founded in 1996, Always Best Care is a senior services agency that provides companionship, respite care, sitter services and in-home/personal care for seniors. We also help find an independent, assisted living or memory care community that best meets your unique needs.
We are passionate about everything we do, including helping seniors and their families navigate all available options.
Responsive Care Management
Appropriate staff for each level of care means peace of mind for you and your family. We take the time to expertly match each client with the right care provider and the correct level of care.
We interview our clients in detail prior to starting care so that we can prepare an individualized and highly personal Care Plan tailored to meet your specific needs, and family preferences.
We assign caregivers according to your needs and requests. We then continue to work closely with you to make sure those needs are met. A Care Manager is available and in touch with your family to ensure that every aspect of care is successful.
Caring relationships are the foundation of our work. Our sincere concern for our clients' wellbeing goes beyond doing just what is required. It means listening to and responding to the changing needs of the client and their family.

Irene has been a resident of North Carolina for 24 years from New York and has been the primary caregiver to her parents, specifically her father who lost his battle with Alzheimer’s and Kidney Failure recently. A graduate of City University of New York at Hunter College, Irene is a Social Worker by trade and has also spent her career in marketing and sales as well. She is still a primary caregiver to her mother and is very sensitive to the challenges of family members and their loved ones. Her main priority is to help families get the opportunity to enjoy each other again instead of being wrapped up in the day to day minutia of caregiving.
I have been in the healthcare industry 20+ years. I absolutely love what I do. I took care of all of my family members who were sick and in need of care. Now, the greatest reward for me is knowing that when I go home for the day, I helped someone get excellent care for their loved one or added an awesome, experienced, and caring care assistant to our team.

“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
