Home Care Tempe, AZ

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.

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 Tempe, AZ is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

That way, they may provide care accordingly without compromising their wellbeing.

The Always Best Care difference lies in life's little moments - where compassionate care and trustworthy experience come together to help seniors live a fruitful, healthy life.

TESTIMONIALS

“Always Best Care assisted with my mom's care over a couple years. Janne and her team were always responsive to changing needs and flexible as she was in/out of hospitals. ABC worked within our budget range and discussed the options and social programs available that might supplement the care as well. They had great communication while providing care and I would highly recommend them for the excellent personal attention they showed for my mom. It was a relief knowing she had great care while I could not be there all of the time.”

“I started working with ABC 3 years ago after just moving to AZ. in the middle of COVID-19. 2022 during the Holiday Season I started working, Tom and Janne' are truly incredible people and seem to be very authentic in the way they provide care for their clients and the well-being of the staff as well. The work hours are flexible, the pay is reasonable with flexible payment options. There were free online classes offered to stay up-to-date, which is awesome. I felt like I was a part of a family while working for this company because I knew nobody in AZ, one certain Sunday they needed a caregiver and I needed at Church service, It was a win-win! Hands down working for or working with Always Best Care would be a blessing. Michele Roland”

“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!”

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Tempe, AZ?

lm-check

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.

lm-check

When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.

lm-check

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.

lm-check

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.

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. 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.

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 Tempe, AZ, 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 Tempe, AZ

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 AZ'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.
 Senior Care Tempe, AZ

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 Tempe, AZ 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 Tempe, AZ

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 Tempe, AZ

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.

Home Care Tempe, AZ

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.

 In-Home Care Tempe, AZ

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 Always Best Care 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:

A discussion of your needs and how our trained caregivers can offer assistance in the most effective way

lm-right-arrow

A draft of your care plan, which includes highly detailed notes and a framework for the care that you or your senior will receive

lm-right-arrow

lm-right-arrow
03

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.

At the end of the day, we only hire the best of the best at Always Best Care. Whether you need home care in Tempe, AZ 24-hours a day or only need a respite for a couple of hours, we are here to serve you.

Welcome to the NHL On Tap. Three NHL.com writers will share what they are most looking forward to on the schedule each day. Today, their choices from the five games Wednesday.

Auston Matthews returns to his home state with a chance to become the fastest United States-born player in NHL history to score 50 goals in a season when the Toronto Maple Leafs visit the Arizona Coyotes at Mullett Arena (10 p.m. ET; SCRIPPS, SNO). Matthews has 49 goals in 53 games, and the 26-year-old forward could surpass the current record for a U.S.-born player of 50 goals in 62 games, set by Kevin Stevens (Pittsburgh Penguins, 1992-93), which he matched in 2021-22 when he finished with an NHL career-high 60 goals. It would be the second time Matthews scored at least 50 goals in his first eight NHL seasons. He has seven goals in his past three games, including hat tricks against the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday and the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday. He set a Maple Leafs record with six hat tricks this season and is four shy of the single-season NHL record of 10 by Wayne Gretzky in 1981-82 and 1983-84. Toronto (30-16-8) is going for its fifth straight victory, which would be its longest winning streak this season. Arizona (23-28-4) has lost 10 in a row (0-9-1), including its past five in regulation. -- Tom Gulitti, staff writer

It was not long after Philadelphia lost 6-3 to the New Jersey Devils in the 2024 Navy Federal Credit Union NHL Stadium Series at MetLife Stadium on Saturday that coach John Tortorella was talking about playing the Chicago Blackhawks. Tortorella was ready to "move by it," speaking about the outdoor game loss to New Jersey, and "we think of Chicago." Well, the Flyers (29-20-7) are there to play the Blackhawks (15-38-3) at United Center (7:30 p.m. ET; MAX, TNT), and we'll see how quickly they have moved on from Saturday. It shouldn't be a hard thing to overcome. They know what went wrong and why, how to fix it, too, but Tortorella also talked about being scared of this game against Chicago. He didn't elaborate other than to say, "That's the next game," but the last thing the Flyers want or need is to cough up a chance to secure two important points against a team that is last in the NHL standings. There's pressure on Philadelphia to respond with not only a win against Chicago, but by playing the type of hard, grinding, difficult on the opponent game it has consistently played this season. The Flyers can't have that loss in the outdoor game have a lasting effect. This one at United Center is important to them for many reasons. -- Dan Rosen, senior writer

Kris Knoblauch talked about the Edmonton Oilers getting on a roll after their 6-3 win at Arizona on Monday. “Good teams are able to put together long [winning] streaks, and good teams also don’t put long losing streaks together,” the Oilers coach said. Edmonton (33-18-1) looks for its third straight win when it hosts the Boston Bruins at Rogers Place (10 p.m. ET; TVAS, SN1, SNE, SNW, SNP, TNT, MAX). Connor McDavid has a 19-game home point streak (12 goals, 34 assists), the second-longest active run behind Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon’s 27 (22 goals, 34 assists), and can become the sixth player in NHL history to have multiple 20-game home point streaks. Leon Draisaitl has eight points (three goals, five assists) during a four-game point streak for the Oilers, including a goal and two assists Monday. Boston (33-12-11) begins a four-game road trip after going 2-3-2 on a seven-game homestand, which concluded with a 4-3 shootout win against the Dallas Stars on Monday that ended a four-game skid (0-2-2). David Pastrnak scored, giving him five points (two goals, three assists) during a four-game point streak. Charlie McAvoy had two assists to extend his point streak to four games (one goal, four assists). -- William Douglas, staff writer

Buffalo Sabres at Montreal Canadiens (7 p.m. ET; RDS, SN, MSG-B)

Nick Suzuki has a career-best 10-game point streak (16 points; eight goals, eight assists) for the Canadiens (22-25-8), who’ve lost two in a row and eight of 11 (3-7-1) after a 4-3 defeat to the Washington Capitals on Saturday. Jordan Greenway has five points (three goals, two assists) in his past four games for the Sabres (24-27-4), including a goal in a 4-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

Philadelphia Flyers at Chicago Blackhawks (7:30 p.m. ET; MAX, TNT)

Blackhawks rookie forward Connor Bedard has six points (two goals, four assists) in three games since returning from his jaw injury. Flyers forward Owen Tippett, who scored twice in the Stadium Series game, has points in three straight games (three goals, one assist) and 13 points (nine goals, four assists) in the past 13 games. Forward Travis Konecny has points in six consecutive games (four goals, seven assists) for Philadelphia, including three straight multipoint games.

Columbus Blue Jackets at Anaheim Ducks (10 p.m. ET; BSSD, BSOH, BSSC)

Frank Vatrano has a three-game goal streak for the Ducks (20-33-2), including two a 4-3 win against the Sabres on Monday. The Blue Jackets (17-27-10) play the second of back-to-back games after a 5-1 loss at the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday. They have lost three of four since the All-Star break and their bye week.

Toronto Maple Leafs at Arizona Coyotes (10 p.m. ET; SCRIPPS, SNO)

Matthews has 25 points (16 goals, nine assists) in his past 13 games, including at least one point in 12 of them. Maple Leafs forward Mitchell Marner has 14 points (two goals, 12 assists) during a seven-game point streak, including 10 assists in his past four. Coyotes forward Logan Cooley is tied for third in the NHL among rookies with 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists) in 55 games.

If anything can appreciate the importance of hockey in the state of Arizona, it's Maple Leafs superstar Auston Matthews.

Just hours before he will try and become the fastest NHLer to hit 50 goals in a season since Mario Lemieux in 1995-96, Matthews — a Scottsdale, Ariz., native — was asked about the ongoing uncertainty over the Arizona Coyotes' arena plans.

Auston Matthews goes for 50th goal in Arizona Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews will go for his 50th goal of the season, playing in front of friends and family against the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday in his home state. Catch the game on Sportsnet Ontario and Sportsnet+ at 10 p.m. ET. (Regional restrictions apply.)

"I think that would mean a lot," Matthews said on the Coyotes eventually getting a proper NHL size rink. "Obviously there is a lot of stuff that goes into it, a lot of hoops to jump through... talking to the guys that have the opportunity to play here and friends on the team, it's an amazing place to live and play."

While the 4,600-seated Mullett Arena is certainly a unique experience for fans, Matthews knows a new arena would be in the best interest of the league.

"Missing the rink situation is a little bit off," Matthews said. "If they could figure that out, I'm positive they could find a solution and it would work out best for everyone. But obviously it's harder said than done. "

The NHL has worked to keep the Coyotes in the area through multiple ownership changes and a game of musical rinks that have landed them on Arizona State's campus in Tempe. They have an agreement to play at Mullett Arena for the 2024-25 season with a possible extension, but player complaints about the situation make it clear the league and union want an alternative.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said he was not in the business of contradicting owners and was trusting Coyotes owner Alex Meruelo who said the team is committed to finding a new place to play in Arizona.

"Alex Meruelo, as recently as last week, told me he was certain he was going to get this done,” Bettman said at the NHL All-Star game in early February. “I’m both hopeful and reasonably confident that he’s going to do what he says."

After Tempe voters rejected an arena referendum last year, the Coyotes announced in June they had identified six possible sites that would not need approval and in August said Meruelo had executed a letter of intent to buy a piece of land for a potential arena in Mesa. Bettman said Meruelo was focused on one property and that the league was focused on it with him.

The Flyers have allowed 10 goals over their consecutive losses and visit the Blackhawks, who are 1-8-1 in their past 10 games but recently had forward Connor Bedard, the NHL’s rookie points leader (39 in 42 games), rejoin the lineup. Each of Chicago’s past eight wins have come at home. Five of Philadelphia’s past seven wins have come by multiple goals.

Bedard has six points (two goals, four assists) in his first three games back from injury, and each of his linemates, Phillip Kurashev and Nick Foligno, has a six-game point streak. Flyers forward Travis Konecny leads them in points since Feb. 1 (11 in six games).
