My brother could not be happier with the care and companionship that Shristi has provided to him. He was initially reluctant to have a care giver but since having Shristi’s care and support he does not know how he would be able to do without her. He would be extremely bereft should Shristi no longer be able to provide him with the care. I would also like to commend your administrative staff for their responsiveness, support and positive attitude. We could not be happier with the care that your organization has been able to provide to my brother.

 In-Home Care Sacramento, CA

How does In-home Senior Care in Sacramento, CA work?

Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it's 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 ages, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

 Senior Care Sacramento, CA

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.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a unfamiliar assisted living community, 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, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old. With the help of elderly care in Sacramento, CA, 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.

Healthy Living
Healthy Living

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 an assisted living community. 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.

Cost and Convenience
Cost and Convenience

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 to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, can be 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 in Sacramento, CA 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.

Empowers Seniors

Affordable Care Plans

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:

Veteran's Benefits
Veteran's Benefits

Aid and Attendance benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.

Long-Term Care Insurance
Long-Term Care Insurance

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.

Private Insurance
Private Insurance

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.

Life Insurance
Life Insurance

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.

Respite Care Sacramento, CA

During your Care Plan consultation with Always Best Care, your Care Coordinator will speak with you about in-home care costs and what options there may be to help meet your budget needs.

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 Sacramento,CA 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.

 Caregivers Sacramento, CA

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 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:

An assessment of your senior loved one


An in-depth discussion of the needs of your senior loved one to remain in their own home


Reviewing a detailed Care Plan that will meet your senior loved one's needs


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.

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.

Sacramento State stuns former coach Troy Taylor in 30-23 win at Stanford

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Kaiden Bennett narrowly avoided a sack to throw a 49-yard touchdown pass with 1:32 to play and Sacramento State beat former coach Troy Taylor's Stanford team 30-23 on Saturday night for the Hornets' third win ever against a Pac-12 school.“It’s awesome that w...

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) Kaiden Bennett narrowly avoided a sack to throw a 49-yard touchdown pass with 1:32 to play and Sacramento State beat former coach Troy Taylor's Stanford team 30-23 on Saturday night for the Hornets' third win ever against a Pac-12 school.

“It’s awesome that we got this opportunity,” said first-year Hornets coach Andy Thompson, who was promoted from defensive coordinator after Taylor left to take the job at Stanford. "We got to come over here, I think we collected a little bit of money too and got a win. ... They should be very proud of how they played against a really good opponent.”

It took a big play late to get the win.

Bennett flung a short pass to Marcus Fulcher just before his knee touched the ground and Fulcher did the rest from there to score for the Hornets (3-0) and spoil his former coach's home debut at Stanford.

“He was doing what he was supposed to do on his part and he was where he needed to be on that play,” Bennett said. “I looked up and saw him. Good job by him. ... I knew once he broke that first tackle he was off. He has that juice.”

Taylor took over the Cardinal (1-2) after going 30-8 in four seasons and leading the Hornets to their first berth in the FCS quarterfinals in school history last season.

Many of his former players are still at Sacramento State, including Bennett, who threw for 279 yard, ran for 100 and had a TD pass and run.

“I have a lot of love and respect for Coach T,” Bennett said. “For what he’s been able to do for my career and stuff. Just for me as a person, I give him a lot of love and respect for that.”

Sacramento State won its school-record 22nd straight regular season game at Taylor's expense, sending Stanford to its second loss ever to an FCS-level school. The Cardinal lost to UC Davis in 2005.

“It’s very familiar faces and good coaches and really good players,” Taylor said of his former team. “Once the game starts, you’re just really competing.”

The Cardinal took a 23-20 lead early in the fourth quarter when Joshua Karty kicked his third field goal of the game on a score set up by Collin Wright's interception.

The Hornets answered with a 44-yarder from Zach Schreiner to tie the game with 4:13 to play. They then forced a punt to set up the winning score.

Stanford scored TDs on its first two possessions to take a 14-3 lead and appeared in position to take control after recovering a surprise onside kick. The Cardinal drove into the red zone before Daniels threw a deflected pass that Caleb Nelson intercepted in the end zone.

The Hornets then put together back-to-back long touchdown drives and took a 17-14 lead following Bennett's 1-yard keeper with 35 seconds left in the half.


Sacramento State: Hornets have played at least one FBS opponent every year since 2002 but winning those games has been rare. They beat Colorado State last season and had wins over Pac-12 foes Oregon State in 2011 and Colorado in 2012.

Stanford: The Cardinal used two QBs with Ashton Daniels starting. He threw a 51-yard TD pass to Eric Ayomanor and had an interception before being replaced by Justin Lamson to start the third quarter. Lamson went 7 for 18 for 138 yards and also threw an interception. The Cardinal will need better QB play the rest of the way with seven of the final nine games against teams currently ranked in the AP poll.

“We obviously have a ton of improvement to make and we have a long year to do it,” Taylor said. “It's back to work and continue to chip away and continue to build.”


Sacramento State: Visits Idaho on Saturday.

Stanford: Hosts Arizona on Saturday.

Stingers Up! Sacramento State shocks Stanford in triumph over former coach Troy Taylor

Shortly after it was over, after Sacramento State secured perhaps the greatest victory in program history since the Hornets started blocking and tackling in 1954, the man of the hour suddenly had the hat of the night.

It was Kaiden Bennett, quarterback star for the gritty and inspired Hornets, who danced his way out of Stanford Stadium with a cowboy hat and a grin that stretched from Palo Alto to the state capitol. Bennett isn’t much of a cowboy, but he is all about style, fun, passion and results, and he had his fingerprints all over Sacramento State’s stirring and stunning 30-23 victory over the Cardinal in front of 23,848 fans.

The outcome sent the Hornets into a joyous frenzy, players and coaches jumping and hugging, the Sacramento State fans who made the three-hour, traffic-heavy trip cheering with the band, school administrators and alums. The Hornets’ third-ever victory over a Pac-12 opponent spoiled the home coaching debut for Troy Taylor, the former Hornets coach who faced old friends and a lot of players he recruited.

“Just having fun,” Bennett said of the straw lid, laughing in reflection.

With a helmet on, Bennett had a load of fun. He passed for 279 yards on 21-of-33 passing, including the game winner to Marcus Fulcher with 1:32 left after narrowly avoiding a sack. Bennett also rushed 13 times for 100 yards and a score as the Hornets extended their regular-season winning streak to 22.

Bennett overcame some passes he’d like to have back but kept with it, the sort of team resolve coach Andy Thompson continues to praise as he moved to 3-0 with the FCS-ranked No. 6 Hornets. Thompson was hired by Taylor before the 2019 season to run the defense, and together they became fast friends and immediate champions, winning three consecutive Big Sky Conference championships after the program suffered through years of mediocrity or misery.

Thompson’s defense had the final say with a late stop to stall Stanford. Bennett took a knee in the victory formation and led the joyous charge off the field.

Bennett scrambled and fired a pass to Fulcher, the powerfully built running back, who then raced down the Hornets sideline for a 49-yard go-ahead touchdown, right in front of the Sacramento State fan section.

“I knew once he broke that first tackle he had the juice to go,” Bennett said.

Said Thompson of Bennett: “He was very motivated to lead us. Gosh, he has a big heart.”

Sacramento State led 17-14 at the half and 20-17 after three quarters, none of the players accepting the fact that FCS teams aren’t supposed to hang with a Power 5 conference FBS program.

What’s more, the Hornets were paid a tidy sum for making the trip and taking on the challenge, a check for $630,000, the norm when a Pac-12 team takes on an FCS program it is supposed to beat. UC Davis, for example, was given a $635,000 check from Oregon State for its efforts earlier this season in Corvallis, where the Beavers won in a rout.

Said Taylor afterward: “Congratulations to Sacramento State and their staff and players. They made a lot of plays and made more than we did. And they won the game. ... Really talented players. Really good coaching staff. They did a great job. They were ready to play and they did some nice things schematically, and obviously the guys are really competitive. They did a great job.”

Stanford took a 14-3 lead after scoring on its first two possessions. The Cardinal recovered an onside kick and was driving to make it 21-3 when Caleb Nelson ended the threat with an interception in the end zone. Bennett’s 1-yard keeper with 35 seconds left in the half gave the Hornets a 17-14 lead.

Stanford led 23-20 early in the fourth quarter off Joshua Karty’s third field goal, though Zach Schreiner tied it on a 44-yard field goal with 4:13 remaining.

Thompson after the game rushed over to the stands to greet his wife, Mikal and their three young sons, Mac, Austin and Teague. His sons were at a recent Hornets practice, living the good life, until the father/coach told them to stop trying to scale the goal posts.

“Wasn’t that fun?” Thompson excitedly asked Hornets first-year president Luke Wood and athletic director Mark Orr, who, as a Cal alum, never tires of beating Stanford.

“I think a lot of people wondered how we’d do when we lost Troy to Stanford, if the sky was falling,” Orr said. “We’re fine. This reaffirms what we already knew. We have a great program with great student-athletes. I’m so happy for Andy Thompson, Kris (Richardson) and Bobby (Fresques).”

That trio remained at Sacramento State to maintain the momentum despite offers to join Taylor on The Farm, Richardson as assistant head coach and Fresques switching from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. They called a terrific game, players and Orr said, and the trio embraced after the game ended.

“That’s sports,” Thompson said, pausing while growing emotional. “It was beautiful.”

Added Orr: “It’s a great day for Sac State and a big day for Sacramento. And as an old Cal guy, yeah, it’s always nice to beat Stanford.”

Said Wood, the president: “With this coaching transition, we showed that we’re not going anywhere. We showed that we’re going to win another conference championship. We showed that Sacramento State is a world-class place for academics and athletics. We are the premier public school.”

Thompson reminded his team that this triumph loses a lot of luster if the Hornets lose their Big Sky opener at Idaho next week. Cal beat Idaho 31-17 on Saturday in Berkeley.

“We are humble,” Thompson said. “We know it’s hard to win football games. We earn everything. We want people to know that Sac State is the place to be in Northern California.”

Soccer is a sport played around the world where different cultures come together on the pitch.

For the Sacramento Republic FC, culture is diverse and spread across the field. Eleven players represent six different Hispanic or Latino countries on the team.

"It's nice to get to know everyone's culture, to get to see what their culture is like what their country is like," said midfielder Rodrigo Lopez of Mexico.

Midfielder Arnold Lopez is from Venezuela. He also said, "El futbol se juega en todos lados en todas partes del mundo y creo que lo importante es conocer cada uno de nuestro lugares que vienen de cada pais y de aqui mismo de estados unidos. Lo importante es que nos sepamos comunicar y sepamos convivir."

That translates to:

"Soccer is played all around the world, and I think that the important thing is to get to know all the places they come from and even the ones from here in the United States. What's important is to know how to communicate and know how to live together."

Forward Sebastian Herrera of Colombia said he loves to share his culture with his teammates.


Sacramento State beats Stanford team led by former head coach

He said, "Algunos han tenido la oportunidad de probar algunos platos colombianos como la arepa, la bandeja paisa y bueno tratar de transmitir esa buena persona, esa calidad humana que tenemos los colombianos."

That translates to:

"Some have had the opportunity to taste some Colombian dishes, like arepas, bandeja paisa, and well try to convey that good person — that warmth that we have as Colombians."

Most of the Hispanic players speak Spanish, English or Spanglish, but midfielder Luis Felipe is from Brazil, a Latin country, where they speak Portuguese.

Because of the regional differences between Hispanic and Latino cultures, Felipe said he worked on his Spanish so that most of the other players didn't have to learn Portuguese.

Spain and Argentina are also represented on the team.

But out of all the different Hispanic or Latino countries represented, Mexico is the most, with five including goalkeeper Carlos Saldana. Saldana loves to share his Mexican culture with his teammates.

"It's absolutely amazing. I think every culture and Hispanic culture brings something different," Saldana said. "We speak the same language, but at the end of the day, we bring something different. Different attitudes and different food, different music. We just keep growing ... and add your own spice to who you are."

Sac Republic celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting a Saturday event called "Noche Latina."

They played against El Paso Locomotive FC. Gameday activities ahead of the match included artists, dancers, creators, vendors and a mariachi band.

Wild Sisters Book Co. is relocating to East Sacramento this fall, the Tahoe Park bookstore announced in its newsletter.

The independent bookstore owned by sisters Noelle Baganz and Claire Bone has been around since June 2021 at 3960 60th St. in the Tallac Village Shopping Center.

“We have loved creating a community space and have found a passion for community events, kids activities and off-site events in addition to our day to day bookselling,” Bone wrote in an email to The Sacramento Bee.

Customers can expect the bookstore’s last day in Tahoe Park to be sometime in late October to early November, with the exact closing date still to be determined, Bone said.

The new 2,300-square foot location will be at 3325 Folsom Blvd. in East Sacramento, with hopes to open right before the holidays, Bone said. It’s a major size upgrade from their current bookstore, which is only 900 square feet.

The sister duo enjoys hosting community events at their bookstore. With more space planned in Tahoe Park, the bookstore has exciting projects lined up.

Recently, Wild Sisters has been partnering with local teachers to assist children through their reading journeys.

“We have found that no matter the school (private, public or otherwise), reading and writing skills were impacted for students at all levels,” Bone said.

The bookstore plans to partner with local teachers to provide students with reading enrichment programs. Younger students will have instructional support through their literary journeys; for the older students, the bookstore plans to form a student volunteer center.

“The new space will also have a small stage for in-store author events, poetry nights, music and more,” Bone said.

The Tahoe Park bookstore is currently open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

You’ll find a range of titles to pick from on topics covering history, cooking, fiction, non-fiction and romance, to name just a few. Books are available to purchase in stores and online through the Wild Sisters Book Co. website.
