“Always Best Care comes in to help my dad a shower at night. When the guy came out to interview, he was really good and helpful, but it was just hard to find someone to help with dad been a little bit bigger and heavier. They like the person that they had come out a couple of times. The caregiver is good.”

How does In-home Senior Care in Chanhassen, MN work?

Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it's especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.

The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.

At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one ages, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.

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.

In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a unfamiliar assisted living community, 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, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old. With the help of elderly care in Chanhassen, MN, 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.

Healthy Living
Healthy Living

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 an assisted living community. 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.

Cost and Convenience
Cost and Convenience

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 to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, can be 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 in Chanhassen, MN 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.

Empowers Seniors

Affordable Care Plans

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:

Veteran's Benefits
Veteran's Benefits

Aid and Attendance benefits through military service can cover a portion of the costs associated with in-home care for veterans and their spouses.

Private Insurance

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.

Respite Care Chanhassen, MN

During your Care Plan consultation with Always Best Care, your Care Coordinator will speak with you about in-home care costs and what options there may be to help meet your budget needs.

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 Chanhassen,MN 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.

 Caregivers Chanhassen, MN

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 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:

An assessment of your senior loved one


An in-depth discussion of the needs of your senior loved one to remain in their own home


Reviewing a detailed Care Plan that will meet your senior loved one's needs


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.

When you're ready, we encourage you to contact your local Always Best Care representative to set up a Care Consultation. Our Care Coordinators would be happy to meet with you in person to get to know you better, discuss your needs, and help put together a personalized Care Plan specific to your needs.

The Grief Club of Minnesota celebrates one year in Chanhassen

“A grief center is a specially designed place or a building that would support the multiple modalities of grief expression,” Cara Mearns-Thompson, co-founder of The Grief Club of Minnesota, explained.Those who have traveled down Coulter Boulevard in the last year may have noticed a new tenant in the building at the road’s intersection with Stone Creek Drive: The Grief Club of Minnesota.

“A grief center is a specially designed place or a building that would support the multiple modalities of grief expression,” Cara Mearns-Thompson, co-founder of The Grief Club of Minnesota, explained.

Those who have traveled down Coulter Boulevard in the last year may have noticed a new tenant in the building at the road’s intersection with Stone Creek Drive: The Grief Club of Minnesota. It’s been a year since the grief center moved to its Chanhassen location, and after a year in the community, Mearns-Thompson reflects on the successes of the past year and the work that’s still to be done.

The nonprofit was founded in 2020 and has since been serving grieving children, teens, young adults and their families across Minnesota. Last August, The Grief Club moved to its 10,000-square-foot space in Chanhassen which has allowed it to expand its programming and serve a greater number of individuals.

The Grief Club offers individual and family counseling and a number of different support groups, as well as special events. As a nonprofit, the services offered come at no cost to the client, and the organization relies on donors to maintain its programming.

In the first half of 2023, the nonprofit surpassed the services it provided for the entirety of 2022. “It’s a really, really sad reality of the need, but it is a need, and so we’re just there to do what we can,” Mearns-Thompson said.

The new space allows The Grief Club to readily host special events, furnish a dedicated art room, hold yoga and breathwork classes, and have plenty of room for in-person support groups and counseling.

What sets The Grief Club of Minnesota apart from other grief centers is its inclusion of professionally licensed counselors — something many grief centers are unable to provide.

“Oftentimes, the clients that we’re working with, they have profound grief, but they’re also experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations, self harm …comorbidities that are also working alongside the grief,” Mearns-Thompson said. “And it’s very, very important, in our opinion, that we have licensed mental health counselors who do the clinical care.”

Mearns-Thompson and co-founder Sarah Kroenke have nearly 50 years of combined experience in the field of “death, dying, and bereavement,” Mearns-Thompson said. Through hospice and social work, as grief counselors, therapists, and authors of grief support curriculum, their careers have revolved around the issue of childhood bereavement.

“Our entire mission this whole time has been to professionally serve the grieving children, teens and young adults, and then their families, in a community environment,” Mearns-Thompson said.

In addition to their professional experience, Mearns-Thompson and Kroenke both have personal experience with childhood bereavement. In her adolescence, Mearns-Thompson experienced the death of a sibling and her father and, as a teenager, Kroenke experienced the loss of her mother.

“We understand at a really deep level the multifaceted emotions of grief,” Mearns-Thompson said, and the two know all too well that resources like the ones offered at The Grief Club haven’t always been readily available.

Although the two maintain the importance of having licensed mental health counselors, the co-founders do not believe in grief itself as a medical diagnosis. “We fundamentally believe that grief is a price of love, and it’s a normal and natural part of our human experience,” Mearns-Thompson said.

Citing statistics from the JAG Institute, a research organization focused on grieving children and families, Mearns-Thompson asserted that childhood bereavement is a public health crisis. “One in 12 children in the United States, under the age of 18, will experience the death of a parent or a sibling,” she said. “What’s really important for us is that we help the kids process the grief in healthy ways, because we do also know that unaddressed and unprocessed grief can lead to poor academic experiences, mental health challenges, and negative behavioral outcomes.”

In order to support its programming and growing client base, The Grief Club of Minnesota will host a fundraising event on Thursday, Sept. 14. Healing Hearts Soiree will feature “heartfelt stories of healing and resilience, and the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of grieving children, teens, young adults and their families,” according to the Grief Club website. Registration is required for the event, and more information can be found at griefclubmn.org/soiree.

With few of the frills or ceremony so often associated with the late music icon, the Minnesota Department of Transportation on Thursday installed new road signs designating a section of highway in honor of late recording artist Prince.

From now on, a seven-mile stretch of State Highway 5 near the musician’s Paisley Park home and studio in Chanhassen will be known as Prince Rogers Nelson Memorial Highway — with bright purple signs marking the route.

About a dozen people, including fans and family members, were on hand Thursday as one of the signs was installed a short distance from Paisley Park. Purple flowers, photos and signs honoring and remembering Prince lined a fence along the property.

Prince’s sister Sharon L. Nelson said that after a long effort to get the project approved at the Legislature, the sign’s installment felt like the “cherry on top.”

“You know Prince’s DNA is all up and down this highway, right? For so many years, he really was,” Nelson said. “And we're going to remember, every time we pass this way, every great song he ever made.”

State lawmakers earlier this year overwhelmingly approved and the governor signed into law a bill greenlighting the rebrand of that stretch of highway.

Mark Webster was a close friend of Prince’s and pressed the Legislature to approve the signs — and to make sure they were purple.

“We had to testify in front of a couple committees to get that purple sign but you can see that we got the purple sign,” he said. “I think they’re a going to look beautiful going down the highway, and this highway will be here for eternity.”

State Sen. Julia Coleman, R-Waconia, said the project had been a long-time mission for her too since Webster brought the pitch before the Chanhassen City Council.

“Today is about Prince because Prince transcended things like partisan politics. It's a bipartisan bill, a bipartisan effort to honor a great man and Chanhassen’s favorite neighbor,” Coleman said.

Motorists driving in the area will be able to see the purple signs along with roadway and pedestrians can take a closer look — and a selfie — near Paisley Park.

Come Aug. 1, adults 21 and older will be able to consume all forms of recreational cannabis.

But neither may be readily available in all communities across the south metro anytime soon.

Legalization of recreational cannabis in all forms, expected to be signed into law by Gov. Tim Walz, allows for communities to place temporary moratoriums banning the sale of cannabis until Jan. 1, 2025, along with allowing municipalities to put in temporary ordinances.

- Advertisement -

While possessing cannabis will no longer be illegal starting Aug. 1, and adults will be able to begin growing up to eight plants at home for personal use, dispensaries aren’t likely to be open for over a year.

Last July, state legislation went into effect which clarified federally legal hemp-derived THC products could be sold. The law said edible products which contain less than .3% THC, five milligrams per serving and up to 50 milligrams per container can be sold to adults 21 and older.

Those retail dosage limits will remain in effect under the new law.

“I’m proud of the communities that have worked on this issue for decades,” said state Rep. Jess Hanson, DFL-Burnsville, following the bipartisan support vote on May 19. “Starting as a legalization advocate and now an elected member of the Minnesota House of Representatives, I know the amount of time and energy spent to organize and educate our government around the harms of prohibition and the benefits of legalization.

“As we move forward, we must stay involved with our government to ensure this is a responsible market accountable to the needs of small businesses and consumers. I’m thankful for this bill, and I look forward to continuing the work.”

Will cities continue moratoriums?

On the front of Green Leaf Depot in Savage, a sign is hung up on the glass of the storefront advertising the sale of delta-8, -9 and other THC products derived from hemp.

But despite being open since September, the store hasn’t been able to sell the products at all after the city council placed a one year moratorium on the sale of THC products in September. For now, the store is selling CBD and other products.

Legislation from last July allowed individual communities to put up to one year temporary moratorium in place, which Savage did in September.

In an interview May 22, Pease said he is excited to see the process going forward and said he expects it to not take very long to have products in place once regulations are settled.

He said his business has received numerous inquiries from venders interested in having products sold at Green Leaf Depot, and oftentimes the vendors were “shell-shocked” to find out there was a moratorium in place.

“It’s nice to see things are in motion, of course, and things are in process… it is exciting times and I think Minnesota is happy for it, too,” Pease said.

Jordan also has a temporary ban on hemp-derived edible products; however, the city council grandfathered in Strains of the Earth which was selling products before the ordinance was considered.

In Carver County, Chaska, Chanhassen, and the city of Carver are all currently without THC ordinances, and none have moratoriums in place. Businesses are currently operating in Chaska, Victoria and Carver.

No future bans

Unlike some states, Minnesota won’t have any opt out options for communities to ban cannabis outright.

State Sen. Eric Pratt, R-Prior Lake, said more control should’ve been given to local communities.

“Some of the more troubling parts of the new Minnesota law are the limits placed on cities in making decisions regarding cannabis retailing businesses,” Pratt said in an email.

One provision in the legislation allows for municipalities to limit the number of cannabis businesses to one per every 12,500 residents.

But Pratt argued there aren’t any minimum requirements for the number of businesses required for other industries. He said based on population Shakopee, would be required to have up to three stores, and Prior Lake and Savage will need two.

“Regardless of whether you support legalization or not, we should allow local communities to address both the direct and indirect impacts of allowing cannabis dispensaries, including how many and where they should be allowed to operate,” Pratt said.

Cannabis businesses will also need to meet local zoning and other land use laws, and local communities can put in measures like prohibiting the businesses from being within certain distances of a school, daycare, residential treatment facility or public facilities frequented by minors like public playgrounds and parks.

Eye on the future

While most communities in Scott County don’t have any legally operating cannabis businesses, Strains of the Earth has been able to sell in Jordan for almost a year after the city granted an exemption from the moratorium.

Jim Cramond opened another store in January, across the river in the city of Carver, which has no regulations on cannabis products.

Cramond said his plan is to move forward with applying for a license to sell recreational cannabis as soon as license applications become available.

“Ever since we’ve gotten into the industry, this certainly has been a goal of ours,” Cramond said.

Unlike some businesses, Strains of the Earth is sectioned off by product. In Jordan, the business sells CBD, mushrooms and hemp-derived THC products; however, they are all sectioned off and have different entrances. In the future, Cramond said he wants to add a fourth division of the company which would focus on plant-based medicine.

Cramond said the benefit of his approach is it allows his staff to direct customers on what is recommended for them based on what information is provided by the customer. For example, a customer may be looking to purchase THC edibles, but staff at the store may recommend CBD instead.

“We just want to give you what truly assists you, the individual, so you don’t have to guess we are going to assist you with proper products,” Cramond said.

In addition to his stores in Jordan and Carver, Cramond said he’s also looking to expand to higher populated areas but wouldn’t comment on which locations he has his eyes on just yet.

Chanhassen EDGE Sam Macy explains why he committed to Minnesota Football

Minnesota's 2024 recruiting class is ranked top-15 nationally as we finish the first week of June, and the Gophers have added to that class following their first camp of the season on Sunday. PJ Fleck and staff decided to offer Chanhassen (Minn.) rush end Sam Macy following camp, and he just announced his commitment to Minnesota less than 24 hours after the offer. Macy had earned offers thus far from Air Force, Army, Navy, North Dakota and South Dakota. The rising junior weighed around 190-195 lbs last fall, but has completely reworked his body and weighed in yesterday at 220 lbs. He tested really well and showed physicality in drills.

Here's what Macy told GopherIllustrated about his Minnesota camp/commitment.

"I thought it went well at camp on Sunday," Macy said to 247Sports. "DL coach Debo told me after camp to head up to the players lounge after I got changed out of my gear. I went up there and then eventually was pulled into a room with Debo, defensive analyst Dennis Dottin-Carter Dott and defensive coordinator Joe Rossi and we had a really nice conversation. After that, I was told to head to Coach Fleck's office where I received my offer after having a conversation with him."

Minnesota Hard Commit 6/5/2023

"When I was with the defensive coaches, we talked about the defensive system at Minnesota, about the camp and how I did, and then the academics and campus itself really. I also got an overview of the day and what the University of Minnesota is about," Macy explained. "When I stepped into Fleck's office, we again talked about the camp and school. After that, he said it was time to talk business and he offered me. We talked for awhile about how I wanted to approach it with him, and I eventually came to the decision that I'd take the offer.

Coach Fleck said he wanted to offer as he liked my motor and drive that he saw at camp. He explained how my testing numbers hold up very well with everybody at rush end."

Macy had been dreaming of this moment for a long time.

"I grew up watching the Gophers. And also seeing guys come through and then seeing the way Coach Fleck has established a culture and stability here. Once I started this recruiting process, there was nowhere else I wanted to be. Honestly to start, I never thought I was going to be able to be in this position so truly blessed to be able to say I’m a Gopher. When Coach Fleck offered me, it didn’t settle in right away honestly. I was super excited and it felt surreal. It didn’t hit me until the morning after when all my friends found out at school. Seeing just how excited everybody was not just me. When I committed that night, Coach Debo literally picked me up. He was so excited and Rossi gave me the hardest pat on the back I’ve ever received. Overall, everyone was just super excited and again it felt unreal."

The Chanhassen product is happy to be staying home.

"I'll be playing rush end at Minnesota and I absolutely think it's a great spot for me. It’s similar to what I do right now with enough difference to where I can really find my true potential as a football player. It feels unreal to be done with the recruiting process. I'm done. Minnesota is where I'm going to be. I want Gopher fans to know that this 2024 class is special and we’re coming for something that hasn’t been done in a long time."
