Home Care Del Mar, CA

They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.

However, as seniors grow older, completing daily tasks like showering and enjoying activities such as visiting the historic Landmarks on Del Mar gets harder without someone by their side. Unfortunately, many older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.

Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live far away from long-term, institutionalized facilities and closer to the place where they feel most comfortable - their home. Home care in Del Mar, CA is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Del Mar, CA?


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.

Home Care Del Mar, CA
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. So, if you've always wanted to eat at the local Pacifica Del Mar or visit Long-Waterman House, don't feel bad. 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.

If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.

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 Del Mar, 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.

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 Del Mar, CA

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 CA'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.

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 Del Mar, 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.

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 Del Mar, CA

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 Del Mar, CA

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.

Some of the most popular assisted living communities to consider in our area include the following:

  • Coastal Breeze Assisted Living and Memory Care
  • La Vida Del Mar
  • Best Days Care Services
  • SHC
  • Attitudes Senior Care
  • Hearts of Gold Care Homes Inc
Home Care Del Mar, CA

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.

Taking the First Step with Always Best Care

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.

DEL MAR, Calif. (KGTV) — A San Diego plastic surgeon has surrendered his license to the Medical Board of California after being accused of gross negligence for allegedly allowing a clinic owner he worked for to mislead patients into thinking he was a medical professional when he wasn’t licensed.

Dr. Gerald Lane Schneider surrendered his license on March 3, according to medical board records.

Schneider, who was board-certified and specialized in liposuction, started working in 2014 at the Pacific Cielo Surgery Center and Medical Spa in Rancho Santa Fe and later at the Del Mar Cosmetic & Contouring Surgery clinic.

The Del Mar clinic made headlines in 2019 after a female patient alleged she had her nipples pinched and breasts grabbed by Dario Moscoso, the owner of the now-shuttered clinic.

The District Attorney later charged Moscoso with 20 felony and misdemeanor counts including sexual battery for representing himself as a surgeon and inappropriately touching four women between 2017 and 2019. He has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty in 2020 and is due back in court in August.

Surgeon took 25% cut of procedures cost: board

The Medical Board alleged Schneider aided and abetted the unlicensed practice of medicine by Moscoso, who gave Schneider a 25% cut of a procedure’s cost.

It also found Schneider put patients in jeopardy by not having the appropriate safety measures in place when he was performing liposuction.

The decision says the required oxygen, medication, and equipment weren’t on site for the procedures and any emergencies.

“At all relevant times, Respondent was not certified in advanced cardiac life support (ACLS), and no ACLS-certified person was present and monitoring the patients at Del Mar. At all relevant times, Respondent did not have a written emergency care plan for his patients at Del Mar.”

Patient safety advocate Marian Hollingsworth said it was unacceptable for patients to be seen for consultations by someone who wasn't a licensed doctor.

“I mean, you can't even get your nails done, get your hair done (from someone who isn't licensed). You have to have a licensed barber. You have to have a licensed nail person to do that.”

Moscoso frequently wore a white coat like a doctor and saw female patients alone for consultations. Schneider would often meet a patient for the first time during the day of a procedure, according to the February stipulated surrender of license and disciplinary order.

The Medical Board found he committed multiple acts of “gross negligence” while caring for patients and engaged in acts of dishonesty.

Schneider’s license to practice medicine in California was suspended from October 2013 – January 2014. And he was on probation until September 2020 for starting a relationship with a patient and having sex with her, according to a 2013 discipline decision.

Doctor required supervisor with female patients

After the ruling, the board required Schneider to have a chaperone in the room when he saw female patients. He used his longtime girlfriend to act as a supervisor at the Del Mar office, according to the February order.

The Del Mar Cosmetic & Contouring Surgery clinic was located inside leased space in a medical building owned by Scripps Health on El Camino Real. Schneider and the plastic surgery clinic had no affiliation with Scripps Health, a spokeswoman for the company said.

Hollingsworth said she wasn't surprised this case happened in upscale Del Mar.

“I've read enough cases where I'm not surprised it happens anywhere because people go into a clinic and if it looks nice, if it looks clean, if it looks luxurious, it must be good.”

She said it reinforces why patients need to do their homework before seeing a doctor. She recommends patients check with the medical board's doctor look up tool before having a procedure done. It will show if the physician has been disciplined or if they are on probation.

Schneider had been licensed to practice medicine since 1977.

The Del Mar clinic has been closed for a couple of years, according to a man who answered the phone number listed online for it online.

Schneider declined to comment on this story when reached by Team10 reporter Austin Grabish.

San Diego County will create a second welcome center for immigrants and refugees settling in the region, after supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to move forward with the plan amid a recent influx of migrants.

The decision lets the Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs accept a $430,529 state grant to establish the center and also sets aside another $101,000 in county funds for it.

It will be the first such county facility in North County, where officials say immigrant and refugee assistance is most needed. Nearly 23 percent of San Diego County residents were immigrants or foreign-born as of 2021, and nearly two-thirds of those lived in North County, Census data shows.

The county will now begin considering potential sites for the new center.

San Diego County currently operates only one welcome center, inside the South Region Live Well Center in National City.

The welcome center is meant as a hub for migrants planning on staying in San Diego to access information about resources, ranging from resettlement to health care. A separate temporary migrant center currently set up at the Iris Transit Station in Otay Mesa, by contrast, focuses on helping migrants continuing on to other parts of the U.S.

The county has resettled nearly 12,700 refugees since 2018, making the region one of the largest recipients of refugee arrivals in California, behind only Sacramento and Los Angeles, immigrant affairs director Lucero Chavez Basilio said. In the last year alone, her office has served nearly 1,400.

The state has designated San Diego County one of eight refugee-impacted counties. In addition, more than 20,000 migrants, many of them asylum seekers, have been dropped off at transit stations across the region since Sept. 13, according to the county.

Since it opened in March, the current welcome center has served over 600 clients. Six community partner organizations provide resources, services and basic necessities on site in various languages.


Oct. 10, 2022

The center was one of the first successes of the immigrant affairs office, which was created in 2021 to build on existing county refugee programs.

“This is about making sure the County is bridging the gap to meet the needs of our diverse communities,” said Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer. “These services help make people more self-sufficient, which ultimately helps our entire region succeed.”

The funds for the center were awarded to the county through the Local Immigrant Integration and Inclusion grant — an initiative by the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development to provide $8.2 million in one-time funding to support the state’s immigrant populations.

Supervisors also agreed to allocate another $101,000 to offset the cost of the North County center through 2025. Funding beyond then will be incorporated into future operational plans.

During public comment Tuesday, a handful of opponents of the center argued that county resources should be dedicated to other issues like homelessness.

In support of the motion was Erin Tsurumoto Grassi, policy director for Alliance San Diego, a nonprofit that unites organizations that promote equality, civic engagement and human rights.

“We may not always agree with what OIRA is doing or how they’re approaching things, but I think we have to make certain to continue to have the office and work through those problems together, so that we can continue to best serve all San Diegans,” she said.

County officials also gave updates Tuesday on their efforts to assist local aid groups serving asylum seekers.

Earlier this month, the county allocated $3 million to nonprofits providing migrant services, such as translation assistance, transportation, Wi-Fi, food and restrooms, at the Iris center, and recently granted management of the funds to SBCS — formerly known as South Bay Community Services.

Over the last year, the immigrant affairs office has helped migrants improve their language skills and access job training, housing education, emotional wellness and family support. Recently, it has also stationed multilingual community health workers at migrant release sites to help them navigate resources.

The office is still looking for grant money to implement a comprehensive, countywide immigration preparedness plan. Chavez Basilio said long-term federal funding is still critically needed.

Supervisors last month declared a humanitarian crisis for asylum seekers at the border and requested more federal support.

The ultraluxe Steak 48 is scheduled to open its doors on Friday, October 13 within Del Mar Highlands Town Center where it fills the long-empty Searsucker space, as well as the former sushi spot and pilates studio, at the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real. The new San Diego location is the ninth restaurant from the Mastro family of Mastro’s Steakhouse fame, who launched Steak 44 in Arizona and whose Steak 48 outpost in Chicago is rated among the city’s top steakhouses. The Mastro group is also behind the seafood-focused Ocean 48, which is set to land in Newport Beach early next year.

The 12,500-square-foot restaurant will be able to seat 350 guests across nine different dining rooms, including four that can be closed off into private dining areas. In addition to the Del Mar Room, which has a reservation-only bar as well as more intimate dining areas, there are six private dining suites with unobstructed views of the enormous kitchen.

Showcasing a menu similar to its recently-opened Beverly Hills location, Steak 48’s in-house butchery will prep specialties including 28-day, wet-aged prime steaks, A5 wagyu, and other cuts such as filet mignons and tomahawks that can be enhanced with toppings like burrata, crab cakes, and lobster. Starters include lobster escargots, chicken-fried lobster tails, and shrimp deviled eggs, and there are also customizable shellfish towers and desserts that are made daily by a dedicated pastry staff.

Wine connoisseurs can indulge in premium wines by the glass, including a $150 glass from Napa Valley’s Fortunate Son Wines, and choose from a wine collection that houses more than 3,000 bottles.

Partially based in Southern California — co-founder Jeffrey Mastro has a home in Coronado, while his brother and co-founder Michael Mastro has a home in San Juan Capistrano — the group may bring more of its brands to the area. Oliver Badgio, chief branding officer for the steakhouse empire, tells Eater that they would love to open an Ocean 48 in San Diego.
