Home Care In Yountville, CA

Home Care Yountville, 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 Site of George Yount's Blockhouse 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 Yountville, CA is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.

TESTIMONIALS

“When I fell and broke my hip in 5 places, my wife needed help taking care of me after hip surgery. The hospital handed us a binder with many resources but would not recommend any one company over another. We called each option for in home care and were immediately impressed with Always Best Care. My call was answered right away and I was routed to the correct team member to make an appointment for an evaluation. Two representatives came out right on time, including Lori Yeager, RN, their Quality Care Director. What also impressed us was two days later, their lead caregiver visited our home to be sure their team of caregivers understood exactly what the needs were and to learn our home layout. When I called other organizations, I was told they did not perform an evaluation. They would just connect me with a contractor and that was it. They would not be able to replace a caregiver if they did not show up or needed to reschedule. That was a deal breaker for us. Always Best Care provided excellent home aid resources from May through August, 2023. Their dedicated scheduler Joselynne was a pleasure to work with. They have a patient portal where the home aid enters notes for each day of care. I cannot speak highly enough of Always Best Care – what a well-run organization. It gives me peace of mind to have such a great resource should we need in home care again. Thank you Lori, Jessica, Joselynne, Ty and the entire team. We sincerely appreciate your help.”

What is Non-Medical Senior Care in Yountville, 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.

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 French Laundry or visit Napa Valley Museum, 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 Yountville, 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 Yountville, 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 Yountville, 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 Yountville, 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 Yountville, 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 Yountville, 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:

  • Napa Valley Adventist Retire
  • Veterans Home of California, Yountville
  • Veterans Home Administration
  • Holiday Redwood Retirement Residence
  • The Inn on Villa Lane
Home Care Yountville, 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

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

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.

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

Residents of the California towns of Yountville and Burney have been warned of the possible presence of E.coli in their tap water, a bacteria known to create stomach-turning symptoms when accidentally consumed.

Burney, a town of 3,000 people, according to the 2020 census, in Shasta County, was first warned of the presence of the bacteria in its water more than a week ago now, on July 12. That was the same day when tests on the town's drinking water distribution system came back positive for the bacteria, according to the initial announcement by the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency, as reported by local newspaper, the Record Searchlight.

Since that day, all Burney Water District Customers were advised by authorities to use only boiled tap water or bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes.

On Thursday, the town of Yountville in Napa County was issued the same advisory to boil their drinking water due to the presence of E.coli, as reported by the Napa Valley Register.

E.coli—which stands for Escherichia coli—is a bacteria that normally lives in our intestines, where it's generally harmless, but has a few strains that can cause people to feel sick with abdominal pain, headaches, diarrhea, cramps, fever, and nausea, among other symptoms.

The Bulletin

Your daily briefing of everything you need to know

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), young children, the elderly, and those with a compromised immune system are most at risk of developing severe symptoms from accidentally consuming E.coli-contaminated food or water.

The outbreak of E.coli in Burney has already caused several people to feel sick and seek treatment at a local hospital, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. The newspaper wrote that, as of Thursday, the Mayers Memorial Hospital District had treated four patients with confirmed cases of E. coli. Valerie Lakey, the hospital's chief public information officer, told the newspaper that other patients may have had the same symptoms but had not been tested for E.coli infection.

The town has not yet identified how the bacteria ended up in its water system and, despite attempts to fix the situation, has not yet solved the problem, as per the latest update on July 18.

On Friday, July 14, the Water District added sodium hypochlorite to water storage tanks to disinfect the system. The Burney water district has informed the public that it has since been flushing the chlorine from the water system and, once dechlorinated, it will conduct samples to test the water for E.coli.

Sign up for Newsweek’s daily headlines

"We are working carefully through the process to assure our drinking water is safe and healthy and the Boil Water Advisory can be lifted as soon as possible," it said.

Newsweek has contacted the Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency and Yountville Chamber of Commerce for comment by email on Friday.

In Yountville, authorities said they expect to get the problem fixed by Monday, saying it will inform residents of when the water is once again safe to drink.

After 13 years of Napa Valley fine dining, chef Richard Reddington will the close the doors on his eponymous restaurant, Redd, after service on October 7.

The restaurant opened there as one of the tiny town of Yountville’s few upscale restaurants at the time, joining the French Laundry as an elevated dining destination.

“I wasn’t going to come into Yountville and compete with Thomas Keller in the super fine dining realm, so I just wanted someplace that would be a little more casual, fine dining but not pretentious, and I wanted a fun bar to appeal to the locals,” Reddington told Eater SF in 2015, following a remodel of the restaurant to mark ten years in business.

Buoyed by cocktails and a deep wine list, Redd became a hangout for locals and tourists alike over the years, with a cozy patio, small but busy bar, and menu of casual — but elevated — fine dining dishes. Signature dishes at Redd include glazed pork belly with apple puree, burdock, and soy caramel, and risotto with lobster, lemon confit, and white truffle oil; the pork belly bao served at the bar became a classic over the years.

Now, Reddington is ready to open a new chapter: He’s becoming bicoastal, building a home in upstate New York and splitting time with Yountville, where he will remain a partner in his casual Italian restaurant, ReddWood.

“I spent a lot of years running back and forth between the two restaurants, I would never miss a Saturday night,” Reddington told Eater. “As you get older, its like ‘what is really going to make me happy?’ At a certain point you gotta take a step back. Now I get to go watch my nieces play soccer and basketball. I’m trying to find a better balance.”

Reddington’s impact on Yountville’s dining scene can’t be underestimated. After working in some of the Bay Area’s best restaurants — including at Wolfgang Puck’s now-closed Postrio, as the opening chef at Traci Des Jardins’ Jardiniere, La Folie, and more — the chef was lured North by a good friend, chef Thomas Keller. Together, their restaurants have changed the landscape of the tiny town, which is now a destination for food-loving tourists from all over the world, and a draw for other culinary talents.

After 13 years, the recent death of Reddington’s business partner, and departure of key staff members, the chef felt that time was right to move on. The prime real estate that houses Redd will come up for grabs soon. “You can’t look back, you just look forward,” says Reddington. “It will be fun to walk into my restaurant and to see what it becomes; I just hope it’s not a chain.”

Reddington is currently working on a project in New York, something smaller and slower-paced than Redd. “For me, [closing Redd] is a positive thing,” says Reddington. “You have to close one door before you can open another.”

NAPA COUNTY, CA — Starting in May and continuing through June, Pacific Gas and Electric Company is conducting an internal inspection of its natural gas pipeline between Napa and Yountville.

The inspections support the ongoing safe and reliable delivery of natural gas in the Napa area, and PG&E does not expect any disruption to natural gas service for customers while the work is conducted, PG&E Spokesperson Megan McFarland told Patch.

PG&E is using In-Line-Inspection —ILI— technology for the inspection process. An innovative tool known as a Pipeline Inspection Gauge —PIG — travels through the pipeline looking for potential issues that can occur over time, such as dents and corrosion. This is a preferred inspection method because it does not require any digging and minimizes impacts on traffic, McFarland said.

Before an inspection begins, temporary devices are installed to maintain the flow of gas, which propel the tool through the pipeline. These devices also help reduce gas emissions and the risk of unplanned interruptions to customers’ gas service.

Starting in late May and continuing through June 2023, PG&E will be in the area conducting these safety inspections. During this time, customers may observe crews, trucks and other equipment while work is staged and conducted.

"We expect work will take place from the early morning hours through the early evening hours," McFarland said.

Tall Metal Devices Temporarily Stored Near Calistoga, Yountville

As part of this safety project, PG&E will temporarily stage equipment at Dunaweal Lane and Highway 29 near Calistoga and along Highway 29 south of Yount Mill Road near Yountville. The two sites will be used to operate enclosed combustion devices —ECDs— which consume natural gas to help generate additional gas flow in the pipeline.

The devices look like tall metal barrels that are 25-35 feet tall and 8 feet wide. The ECDs were expected to arrive Wednesday, May 24, and will be removed once the inspections are completed, McFarland said.

The devices will likely operate from early in the morning until late in the afternoon; a glow at the top of the devices may be visible, McFarland said. This is due to the process used to support the inspection tool.

"Since 2011, PG&E has been rigorously inspecting, replacing, and modernizing pipelines to proactively ensure the safety and reliability of its gas system," McFarland said. "Some of the newer technologies applied to the gas system include remote-control and automatic shut-off valves that can stop the flow of gas faster in an emergency and highly sensitive methane detection sensors that can track microscopic emissions."
