Home Care In Carson, CA

Home Care Carson, 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 California Historical Landmark 274: Carson Hill 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 Carson, CA is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

Since 1996, Always Best Care has provided non-medical in-home care for seniors to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle as they get older. We are proud to have helped more than 25,000 seniors maintain higher levels of dignity and respect. We focus on providing seniors with the highest level of in-home care available so that they may live happily and independently.

To make sure our senior clients receive the best care possible, we pair them with compassionate caregivers who understand their unique needs. 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.

“I highly recommend Always Best Care for every aspect from the ones seeking care for a loved one or themselves, all the way to the ones seeking an opportunity to care for a senior. I personally worked for ABC, and throughout my years with them I had the pleasure of interacting with the seniors as well as with the amazing caregivers. From the stories of a much more simpler time in the elders life to the reasons from a caregiver wanting to truly care for the seniors. (Most reasons are personal to them that have impacted their life and heart). This is truly a caring company with exceptional professional staff. It's hard to find a company that demonstrates both of those traits....”

“I cannot say enough good things about Always Best Care in the South Bay. I was lucky to be referred to ABC when my Father suddenly needed in-home care several years ago and I hired ABC again a few months ago when my friend needed in-home care. The learning curve is steep when a family member is no longer independent. Having reliable, caring and professional caregivers is invaluable in getting through these challenges. Hiring the caregivers from ABC allowed me to be the "daughter" again. I absolutely could not have cared for my beloved Father or my dear friend without ABC by my side!”

“Always Best Care agency has been wonderful to work with. The caregivers they have provided to stay with my dear friend, who has dementia, have been outstanding. My husband, an MD, and I, an RN, have rather high standards and have found all of the caregivers to be professional, caring and extremely reliable (24/7 care in this case) They go above and beyond expectations. I have felt safe with the caregivers,as they are also down-to-earth; caring people. Dr. David Hart is the main point person in this family-run agency and he is not only a very caring person, he is extremely intelligent in his communication, yet very down-to earth at the same time. He is responsive to any issues that arise immediately…not only for the client, but also to his caregivers, who he genuinely cares about. That is perhaps why he attracts and retains such stellar employees, We feel very lucky to have found ABC Senior Care services. Ilene Watson, RN and Dr. Walter Watson,MD, Manhattan Beach, CA”

“Carrie, David, and their team are terrific to work with. Carrie has been a lifesaver by helping us to quickly find a wonderful 24/7 board and care facility for our loved one who is suffering from both advanced dementia and a broken, severe arthritic neck. They have provided very capable temporary care givers to us to help with taking our loved one to doctor's appointments and during the time our loved one was being treated in the hospital. David has thoroughly educated us on all aspects of dementia and counseled the family members to help sort out their emotions during these difficult times. We strongly recommend Always Best Care South Bay to anyone needing advise, help, and services to find care facilities, care givers, and/or counseling.”

“From the moment I first spoke to Mark Wecker at Always Best Care, he was kind, caring and extremely knowledgeable. He made sure to ask all the right questions to help my siblings and me find the perfect place for our father who had very advanced Parkinson's Disease. He took us to places that fit the high quality we were looking for and in our budget range. Mark showed genuine concern for us and my father. And he helped us navigate through a challenging situation. We made a great decision based on his expert advice. Unfortunately, my father passed away before we could bring him to LA. But I will always be grateful for the detailed attention we received from Mark and Always Best Care.”

“My son and I have received family counseling from Dr. Hart for nearly two years. We both suffer from PTSD, among other mental disabilities, and have been seen by a number of therapists over the years. We have found Dr. Hart’s care to be among the most helpful. He is kind, understanding, and patient. Rather than employing long term, traditional psychotherapy or other limited methods exclusively, he uses different approaches to break through a person’s natural resistance. He suggests interpretations of feelings and actions, asks questions that show real insight, and then gives practical and usually appropriate advice that can be accepted or discussed further. He has treated us with respect and even with a non-intrusive, kind of professional affection. We would recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.”

Mark was understanding and expressed his concern for my Dad's wellbeing. He didn't push for us to continue services. I would work with ABC again if my father agrees to resume services.

“I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. David Hart for your elder-care needs. Dr. Hart is an incredibly knowledgeable and caring person who helped our family beyond measure to provide the best level of care for our mother who has Alzheimer's Disease. We engaged Dr. Hart to 1) conduct his own periodic assessments of our mother; 2) create a forum for our broader family, including our mom, to communicate and ask questions; 3) provide training and resources; and 4) help our family evaluate and implement an interim and long-term care plan for our mother. DR. HART EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS ON EVERY LEVEL. Prior to meeting Dr. Hart we had received a lot of conflicting information and our broader family was experiencing a very high level of stress and frustration. Thankfully, after engaging with Dr. Hart for several months, our family became knowledgeable, we communicated well with each other, and we just implemented a long-term care plan that addresses all of our mom's needs and one that she really enjoys. DR. HART IS THE BEST AND HE TRULY CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS AND THE FAMILIES HE WORKS WITH. Thank you Dr. Hart for all of you have done for our family. Words cannot express our gratitude.”

“My widowed 80-year-old mother who has Alzheimer's disease has been living alone for 3 years. She has been extremely resistant to having caregivers in her home and my brother and I had all but given up. We have been amazed at the progress we've made since enlisting the help of Dr. David Hart at Always Best Care. In a little over a month, Mom has accepted a caregiver and is considering a move to an assisted living facility. Equally important, the support and assistance we have received in making both large and small decisions has been invaluable and a huge relief. I also highly recommend the Caregiving Essentials class taught by Dr. Hart, which covers everything you need to know in a single 3-1/2 hour "bootcamp" session, including brain science, communication tips, and resources. (GPS shoe insert, who knew?!) The class would benefit anyone who has a friend or family member suffering from dementia.”

“Dr. Hart has been of monumental assistance to our family during a very difficult time. We first learned of Dr. David’s practice when mom was first diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). His support groups for families and patients offered comfort and practical advice from others going through the same experience. He provided essential information—facts about dementia and lifestyle changes to slow the process—based on the latest research findings, sparing us the time and frustration of navigating the web and sorting facts from myths. But most important to me has been the emotional support Dr. David has personally provided to my sister and I, and the trusting relationship he established with mom. His professional empathy and experience with human behavior as well as his expertise in the field of geriatrics and cognition combine to provide an array of servicesthat will truly make the difference toward a successful transition for elders and their families.

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Carson, CA?

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.

 Senior Care Carson, CA

Home Care Carson, 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 The Refinery or visit Empire and the Carson River Mills Historic Marker, 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.

Benefits of Home Care in Carson, CA

Always Best Care in-home services are for older adults who prefer to stay at home but need ongoing care that friends and family cannot provide. In-home care is a safe, effective way for seniors to age gracefully in a familiar place and live independent, non-institutionalized lives. The benefits of non-medical home care are numerous. Here are just a few reasons to consider senior care services from Always Best Care:

Always Best Care offers a full array of care options for patients at all levels of health. With our trusted elderly care services, your loved one will receive the level of care necessary for them to enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

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 Carson, 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 Carson, 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.
 Senior Care Carson, CA

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 Carson, 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 Carson, 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 Carson, 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:

  • Carson Senior Assisted Living
  • BUN circle senior care home
  • Vergie's Manor Residential
  • Senior Care Center
  • A Paradise Elderly Home Inc
  • Southbay Guest Home
Home Care Carson, 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.

CARSON, Calif. -- A Carson, California couple is facing foreclosure because of what's known as a "zombie loan."

That term refers to a second mortgage that seemed to have been forgiven or written off - until years later when a collector reaches out about the unknown, but supposedly unpaid, debt.

Such confusion over mortgages has led to a surprise massive bill that Adaina Brown and her husband can't pay.

Brown said they are living in what was supposed to be her dream home. Now she's worried she might lose it.

"It kind of just broke my heart. I told my husband I can't take another thing," Brown said.

She and her husband bought the house in 2007. They needed a first and second mortgage. When the housing market crashed she said the mortgages were transferred several times to new companies.

She said her original lender eventually charged off the second loan.

But then it showed up with a new company.

After she spoke with them, that company sent her a letter that said she was not responsible for the debt.

"They said, 'thank you for reaching out. You're absolutely right, this debt has been charged off. You are no longer liable for this debt. We will update your credit.' They sent me a new credit report," Brown said.

But just a few months later that same loan showed up again with yet another company, Specialized Loan Servicing, which said she owed $139,000. Since then,Adaina said the company filed against her property.

"I get a notice of default, and hundreds of realtors called me about my house saying, 'do I want to sell it, it's in pre-foreclosure,'" Brown said.

Back in 2020, the federal government's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau found that Specialized Loan Servicing violated regulatory guidelines by foreclosing against borrowers who were entitled to protection.

"It's illegal for an agency to sue or try to collect debt that's way past the statue of limitations," bureau official Mark McArdle said. "So, your classic zombie foreclosure."

Now that they notified Brown of a default, the loan company could sell the house at any moment. So she's trying to be proactive. She might have to sell the home even though she doesn't want to.

"Ultimately, the goal is to keep it, but I don't have $200,000 to keep this house. I don't have money for a lawyer. And I don't want a foreclosure on my record either, you know, so it's just like we're in a lose-lose situation," Brown said.

Information about zombie mortgages and how to file a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is available here.

"So we do encourage everybody in that situation to make a complaint to the bureau. And especially if they're facing foreclosure, we have a a flag that they can click. That helps us prioritize it so we can intervene," McArdle said.

ABC Los Angeles affiliate KABC tried to contact Specialized Loan Servicing for a statement but no one responded to an email or could be reached by phone.

Tesla to open the company’s first supercharger station in Carson

Tesla is set to open its first supercharger station in Carson next year, according to a project update the company’s representatives gave during this week’s Council meeting.This upcoming station, which will include 20 superchargers, aims to draw new visitors, bolster local businesses and accelerate the city’s shift toward sustainable transportation, Carson officials said.“This initiative is a significant step towards enhancing our city’s infrastructure for sustainable transportation,” Mayor L...

Tesla is set to open its first supercharger station in Carson next year, according to a project update the company’s representatives gave during this week’s Council meeting.

This upcoming station, which will include 20 superchargers, aims to draw new visitors, bolster local businesses and accelerate the city’s shift toward sustainable transportation, Carson officials said.

“This initiative is a significant step towards enhancing our city’s infrastructure for sustainable transportation,” Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes said. “These stations not only align with the city’s commitment to environmental sustainability but also cater to the growing number of electric vehicle users in our community.

“The presence of these charging stations is expected to contribute positively to Carson’s economy by attracting visitors and supporting local businesses,” she added. “It also demonstrates the City Council’s proactive approach in adopting innovative technologies that address both environmental concerns and the practical needs of our residents and visitors.”

The station will be built at the Carson Event Center, 801 Carson St. All electric car owners, including non-Tesla owners, will be able to use the station, according to Rana Kheradmandan and Wesley Cowell, Tesla’s West LA project manager and development lead, respectively, who spoke at the meeting.

There are more than 50,000 Tesla superchargers across the globe, the company’s website says. Tesla owns and operates more than 20,000 superchargers at around 2,000 stations in the United States, according to data compiled by the U.S. Department of Energy.

There are around 10 supercharger stations scattered throughout the South Bay region, including in Torrance, Lawndale, Hawthorne, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach, according to a map on the company’s website.

A supercharger can supply up to 200 miles of range in 15 minutes, according to the website.

Tesla will foot the bill for the infrastructure, City Manager David C. Roberts Jr. said, but the project is a “win-win” for both the city and Tesla.

The station, to be built off the 405 Freeway, is strategically located near one of the most heavily trafficked corridors in the state, Roberts said.

The Tesla representatives said they anticipate the project to open to the public in May or June. Construction is expected to start in January and installation will take 10 to 16 weeks.

Tesla will also manage the station’s operations, the company representatives said.

Tesla has already completed the design for the station and obtained approval for the project’s permit. It’s waiting for easement documents from Southern California Edison.

Once the City Council reviews and executes the easement documents, the company will begin pre-installation, the representatives said.

L.A. Deputy who walked in on armed robbery at 7-Eleven speaks out

A Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff who happened to walk into a 7-Eleven that was being held up by four armed robbers is speaking out about the harrowing ordeal.

The attempted robbery, which was captured on the convenience store’s security cameras, unfolded on Jan. 13 around 1:30 a.m. at a 7-Eleven at the intersection of Victoria Street and Avalon Boulevard in Carson.

“When I stopped by, I saw a vehicle that was already parked there and it felt kind of strange,” Deputy Luis Cisneros told KTLA’s Rachel Menitoff. “I tried looking inside the windows, but I couldn’t see much because of the advertisements. Once I opened the door, that’s when I knew there was an armed robbery in progress.”

In the security footage, three armed men stormed the store, jumping over the counter and threatening two 7-Eleven clerks no more than a minute before the deputy stopped by at the end of his shift to get a drink and check in. A fourth suspect entered through a side door.

“I was surprised that as soon as I opened the door, the robbery was in progress,” Cisneros said, adding that his training immediately kicked into high gear.

The deputy is seen in the video stepping inside the convenience store, quickly pulling out his service weapon and radioing for backup.

Sergio Flores, one of the two clerks on shift that morning, recalls the terrifying moment he realized they were being robbed. He dropped to the floor immediately and remembered thinking, “I’m done. Maybe they’re going to shoot me. Everything happened so fast, and they were screaming.”

As the deputy entered the store and yelled for the thieves to put their hands up, Flores recalled the relief at hearing the man’s voice.

“When I saw him come in, I realized somebody’s come to save us,” he said.

More backup deputies eventually arrived at the scene and the four suspects were taken into custody.

As for Cisneros, the danger of the situation was not lost on him, saying the incident could have gone a lot of different ways. The first thing he did once the attempted robbery was peacefully resolved was call his wife.

“I told her I love her and just kind of kept talking to her about the scenario because we all have those kinds of what-if moments,” he said. “What if I would’ve parked somewhere else, what if I would’ve done something differently, but thankfully I’m blessed of the outcome.”

Within the last week, there have been seven robberies at 7-Eleven stores across Los Angeles and Long Beach, though authorities have not said whether they believe this attempted robbery may be related to the others.

CARSON, Calif. (KABC) -- Dozens of people living at a Carson mobile home park are working to fight, or least postpone, their eviction as the property is set to be redeveloped.

The residents live at Imperial Avalon Mobile Estates, a property which was bought by a real-estate company four years ago and is slated to become a mixed-use development.

On Tuesday, the tenants asked a judge to stop their evictions. They got a reprieve for at least one more month.

"These are their homes and it's their lives, and they stood up for them," said park resident Jeff Steinman, president of the Imperial Avalon Mobile Estates HOA. "And it has not been easy for any of them."

The park had been set to close Wednesday.

Since it was bought by the developer four years ago, many people have in fact moved out. But some remain. They say they're on fixed incomes and cannot afford to live anywhere else.

"They couldn't deal with the stress," said resident Valerie Porizek. "They didn't know where they would go. I believe there are three or four people who have passed away and we have others that are very ill because of the stress that's being put on them."

Residents own the mobile homes, but not the land they sit on. The homes aren't as mobile as the name implies: They say the homes can't be moved so when they relocate they have to leave them behind.

Tim Tatro, the attorney for the homeowners association, said: "It's not a simple problem because, for example, many places for rent require two to three to four times the monthly rent and income just to qualify. These folks don't make that."

In court Boyd Hill, the attorney for Imperial Avalon DE, LLC, said the company tried to work with the remaining residents for relocation assistance. He said residents refused to cooperate.

In a statement he said in part: "We have tried for more than three years to assist the remaining residents, and today, a judge ruled that those residents are now required to meet with our relocation specialists."

The judge issued a temporary restraining order, stopping the park from closing while the two sides try to work out an agreement

"We're eager to do that so that they can move on with their project and we can move on with our lives," said Tatro.

With the judge's order residents can stay at the park for about a month. They are scheduled to be back in court on Dec. 1.

230-unit affordable housing complex rises at 800 W Carson Street

In unincorporated West Carson, construction is now in progress for a large affordable housing complex just east of the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center complex, general contractor Milender White has announced.

The project from Meta Housing Corp., now taking shape at 800 W. Carson Street, is rising on a property located just west of the I-110 Freeway. Plans call for the construction of a new seven-story complex featuring 230 one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom dwellings above a two-level subterranean parking garage.

Y&M Architects

Y&M Architects is designing the project, currently referred to as West Carson. According to the Milender White website, the building will present a red, white, and grey facade accented by black-framed recessed balconies when viewed from the west, and a white, black, and grey facade to the east, highlighted by a four-story mural.

Proposed on-site open spaces include a community center and multiple courtyards.

The apartments, which are to be reserved for households earning between 30 and 70 percent of the area median income level, are on track for completion in 2026, according to a news release by Monarch Private Capital, which provided Low Income Housing financing for the project.

In addition to its location in proximity to the Harbor-UCLA hospital, which is in the midst of a $1.7-billion makeover that includes a new clinic building and bioscience campus, the project joins a handful of other large housing developments now in the works nearby. That includes the West Carson Villas, a new affordable housing from PATH Ventures now rising less than one mile south of the hospital, as well as a proposed 525-unit development from GPI at 22107 S. Vermont Avenue.

West Los Angeles-based Meta Housing is also developing new projects in Westlake and Long Beach, among other locations.
