A VISION, A BELIEF, AND A GOAL

Our Story

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.

ABOUT US

Welcome to Always Best Care of Tempe & East Valley

Tom and Janné are both natives to the Valley of the Sun. Their family and community ties span from central Phoenix to Mesa, including Tempe, Scottsdale, Chandler and Awhatukee. They have enjoyed living in Dobson Ranch for the past 17 years. Their decision to open an Always Best Care agency stemmed from watching many friends care for loved ones who have experienced challenges with aging and ailments, as well as caring for their own family. Positively contributing to the needs of their community is their ultimate goal.

Caring for aging parents or helping a loved one as they convalesce from an injury can be emotionally draining and physically exhausting for the caregiver. It’s often uncharted territory and sometimes unexpected, creating stress for families. Whether the caregiver is a spouse, a child or a sibling, they need a lot of support and respite for themselves. Always Best Care Tempe desires to come alongside people as they maneuver through this phase of their life’s journey, no matter how long or short. Our staff consists of people we would feel comfortable having in our own home, caring for our own family members. ABC Tempe will help you assess your particular needs and partner with you in providing care that will best benefit you and your loved ones.

Our Vision:

The Always Best Care resources include an extensive library to help you make better informed decisions on senior care and more. Our vision is to work as a united TEAM providing the best senior care in the world with the broadest range of services, and the most loving and consistent care anywhere.

Service coverage:

Always Best Care Senior Services provides senior care in Tempe, Mesa, Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert, central Phoenix, and Laveen.

Always Best Care In Home Care Services

Personal Care Services

  • 24-Hour Care​
    Always Best Care helps you find the perfect round-the-clock in-home care plan to fit your loved one’s circumstances and needs. 24-hour care is support that is available to anyone who needs extra help to carry on living at home. It can include help with shopping, cooking, cleaning, washing, dressing and all other daily tasks. The need for 24-hour care can be prompted by accident, illness, dementia, frailty, disability, or frailty caused by the aging process.
  • Bathing, Grooming
    & Dressing​
    Bathing, dressing and grooming play a large role in a senior’s daily routines. Maintaining good personal hygiene can be vital in preventing sickness, while dressing can impact an elderly individual’s self-esteem. Grooming and dressing are integral to the activities of daily living.
  • Cognitive Impairments​​
    Cognitive impairment is not an illness, but a description of someone’s condition. It means they have trouble with things like memory or paying attention. They might have trouble speaking or understanding. And they might have difficulty recognizing people, places or things, and might find new places or situations overwhelming.
  • Companionship​​
    Companionship care is primarily emotional support and companionship for seniors who are generally healthy and who want to remain independent at home.
  • Errands & Transportation​​
    Help with errands, shopping, and transportation falls under the category of Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). These skills are necessary in order to live independently and that all of us do once we are up, out of bed, dressed, and ready to start our day. Transportation services for seniors can help maintain a level of independence without the need for the senior to drive themselves.
  • Escort to Activities​
    Escorting a senior to activities can help them if they feel unsafe or uncomfortable in public without accompaniment. Many trips are often used to assist seniors to utilize the services of health professionals and agencies that they otherwise would not be able to access.
  • Hospice
    Support / End-of-Life​​
    Hospice care is for people who are nearing the end of life. The services are provided by a team of health care professionals who maximize comfort for a person who is terminally ill by reducing pain and addressing physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs.
  • Hospital to Home​​
    Following a discharge from the hospital, the first three days are critical. During this time frame and beyond, the support given to a senior and their family play a vital role in the recovery process at home. A hospital-to-home program offers a comprehensive and flexible solution that can provide the physical and emotional support needed to recover safely and comfortably.
  • Incontinence / Toileting​​
    There are several types of incontinence, which include overflow incontinence, transient incontinence, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and knowing a little about the different types can help the caretaker and the family make the best decisions about what levels of toileting assistance should be included in the care plan of their loved one.
  • Laundry Services​​
    For seniors, laundry can be a challenge. As people age, they may have less energy and stamina. One of the biggest benefits of laundry services is that they can help seniors stay independent. Laundry services can also help keep seniors healthy by ensuring the are wearing clean clothing.
  • Light Housekeeping​​
    Light housekeeping includes things like watering the plants, dusting of surfaces and knickknacks, as well as picking up newspapers, magazines and other clutter. It includes emptying the trash, vacuuming and sweeping of main walk areas. It can also include organizing drawers, shelves and closets. In a nutshell light housekeeping is completing the specific tasks required to tidy up areas that a client uses. Examples of what a light housekeeping service does not include are heavy-duty cleaning tasks that require moving heavy furniture, washing windows, cleaning carpets, or scrubbing floors. Nor does it cover outside chores, such as shoveling snow off sidewalks, raking, or mowing the grass.
  • Live-In Care​​
    Live-in care is for seniors who need around-the-clock assistance from a caregiver. Assistance is generally non-medical and includes such tasks as medication management, shopping, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADL). Though caregivers sleep at the senior’s residence, they generally aren’t required for assistance at night.
  • Meal Preparation​
    Meal preparation and eating healthy and nutritional food is important for seniors. Meal preparation assistance for the elderly is not just about cooking, but involves so much more. Maintaining a regular and consistent schedule can also play a role in emotional and physical health.
  • Medication Reminders​
    Medication reminders are a nonmedical service provided by a caregiver or a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA). CNAs do not administer medications, or speak with a doctor or pharmacist about a senior’s medicine or regime—but they do ensure medication safety and regularity.
  • Mobility​
    Mobility is the ability to move or walk freely and easily — is critical for functioning well and living independently. As we age, we may experience changes to our mobility. There are many reasons for these changes, including changes in gait (how we walk), balance, and physical strength.
  • Nutrition Monitoring​​
    Nutrition is an important element of health in the older population and affects the aging process. The prevalence of malnutrition is increasing in this population and is associated with a decline in functional status, impaired muscle function, decreased bone mass, immune dysfunction, anemia, reduced cognitive function, poor wound healing, delayed recovery from surgery, higher hospital readmission rates, and mortality.
  • Overnight Care​​
    Overnight care revolves around a multitude of services which may include help using the restroom in the middle of the night, providing fluids and snacks in the evening, and assisting with preparing for bed. Elderly individuals may also receive help with transfer assistance throughout the night. Overnight caregivers can also prepare breakfast and offer morning care.
  • Safety Supervision​​
    Because more accidents occur inside the home than anywhere else, seniors and their caregivers must do everything in their power to make sure their homes are as safe and secure as possible. Some of the steps that can be taken to ensure homes are safe for seniors and their families include removing clutter, adding better lighting, rearranging cabinets and drawers, and assessing the safety risks of the bathroom.
  • Technology Assistance​​
    Technology can help the elderly live independently for longer by facilitating preventive care, early detection of, and response to, emerging health issues, as well as timely support for daily tasks. Technology offers a wide range of benefits to older adults. Seniors who use technology can also feel more connected to others, can be better engaged in the community and world around them, and be more informed about current events.

TESTIMONIALS

“At the beginning of the year my family was hit with a blow when my father ended up in the hospital for several days! Once he was released he needed an outpatient rehab and then an assisted living facility! I never expected to have to navigate something like this at my age!! I was lost and surely didn’t know what to do! I’m so grateful Janae and I were able to get connected! From the moment that she found out my dad needed assisted living she was there with me every step of the way! She gave me several facilities to check out that she had vetted and would trust with her own family! The first assisted living facility she suggested was the one we ended up choosing! All of the staff was so incredibly kind and I could tell they took a sincere interest in each one of the people that lived in the facility! Shortly after my dad got settled in Janae went by to actually meet my father! I can’t tell you how much that meant to me and my heart! The best part about this is, the love and care didn’t stop there! Over the last six months I have been contacted by Janae, and she as has even visited my dad to check in see how things are going! Janae has truly gone above and beyond my expectations and my hopes! I highly recommend Janae and anyone she trusts to work with her!”
