With Always Best Care, every client receives extraordinary care in an inspiring environment with caring people. We listen to our clients’ needs and provide attentive, individualized solutions. Our clients know we care. See what they say: I had placed my severely disabled sister, Mira, in an Assisted Living facility in Tampa. I became concerned about the care she was getting there and wanted to find a new facility that would accept her with her substantial care needs. I saw an ad in the church bulletin by Always Best Care offering free service searching for an Assisted Living facility. I called them, spoke with Michele Manzo-Lembo and engaged her. We met the next day,, and I described my sister's need for substantial care. The next day she provided us with a matrix listing five facilities, their amenities, costs, and availability of a room. We selected two and Michele arranged a visit to each. We made our selection, placed my sister there, and are delighted in the facility and the care they are giving her. Michele's knowledge of the Assisted Living market was invaluable. It saved us our time and energy to research the market, sort through their information, and arrange visits. With Michele's help we had placed my sister in the new facility within three weeks of engaging her. Without reservation, we would highly recommend Always Best Care to assist anyone searching for an Assisted Living facility.

Thank you again for all of your great help! Everything is going great. I love the owners, they are so nice, thorough and so organized it is truly unbelievable. The transition (from home) has gone alone better than expected and my mother is receiving services I just wasn't really expecting. She goes to bed early so they wake her at 9 pm to give her a pill an late night protein snack - both at the recommendation of her doctor - and they constantly clean and care for her hearing aides. They even painted her finger nails yesterday. I am very pleased with the assisted living community you found for us. Thanks again, you did a great job!

My mother’s memory and mental state was slowly getting to the point that she should not be living alone. Then she had a mild stroke that left her just weak enough that she had to accept the fact that she needed help. My brother tried to move her in with him, but it was evident after a couple of days that it wasn’t going to work out. She can be a challenge to deal with. We relocated her from North Carolina to a facility in Florida to get her closer to me. Her finances were budgeted out to support her for just a few more years. However, they did not account for the cost of Assisted Living. And the cost of the facility we originally chose was more than she could afford. We had to rethink her budget and planning for the long term. So, we had a very limited amount that she could afford to support her. It was a very stressful situation. Starting the process of finding a new facility was daunting and confusing. Michele from ABC Senior Services was recommended to me by a lawyer specializing in elder care. Michele was wonderful to work with. She met with me, in person, to get a thorough understanding of our situation. She did her research and came back with suggestions for facilities that met our financial and care needs. We went together to tour the facilities and she was very helpful in asking the right questions. This is in contrast to other services that basically sent me a list of facilities they work with, many of which were way over our budget. In the end, Michele helped me find a nice, clean, safe facility that we can afford to keep mom there for as long as she needs. Thanks again for all your help." ~Lori C., Safety Harbor, FL

My mother is elderly and unable to take care of her own affairs any longer. She has been living at the same assisted living facility for five years now. Unfortunately the price to stay at the same facility has gone up every year to the point now that she can no longer afford to stay there. My wife and I decided it was time to explore other options for my mother, and reached out to a resource we had at our church for guidance. Thankfully, our resource put us in touch with Michele who right away contacted us and scheduled an appointment to meet and discuss our situation. She listened carefully, took meticulous notes as we spoke about my mom’s situation to her. Right away Michele got to work on the hunt for a private assisted living facility that would work with us within my mom’s budget. Within a week we had a scheduled appointment to see two private facilities. She met me again and within a week we toured the two facilities. Then she coordinated another meeting so my mom could see the facilities and make an informed decision on the one she liked the best. We’ve been quite impressed with Michele and her professionalism and the courteous service she has provided. She’s been a God send as she’s helped ease a burden that was weighing heavily on our shoulders. Thank you Michele for your help with everything. ~D & M Gonzalez, Tampa, FL

You are one of Earth's Angels!!! Thank you so very, very much!!!" ~NMR, Lakeland, NH

Dear Always Best Care Senior Services: I just wanted to provide feedback on the wonderful work Michele Manzo-Lembo did for our family. Transitioning my father from his home to an assisted living community was an extremely hard decision for the family to make. Not only was it hard, but the thought was just overwhelming. Michele came highly recommended by a friend. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for everything Michele did for us. She made the process look and feel so simple. Michele was so easy to talk to and to work with. She seemed to know exactly what we were looking for and made our search extremely easy. The research process from start to finish took less than two weeks. She was extremely flexible with last minute appointment schedule changes and was always cheerful and a delight to be with. I remain eternally grateful to Always Best Care Senior Services and applaud the fine work and professionalism Michele bestowed upon my family." Gratefully yours, ~ Lily D, Tampa, FL

Michele….. Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the assistance you gave us in the transition for our Dad. He fell in his condo a few weeks ago and required surgery, a hospital stay and physical therapy. As a result of his accident and rehabilitation, we decided the best thing for him would be to consider alternative living arrangements. Initially he was completely against this and was set on continuing his home care – regardless of the costs involved. After a brief conversation with you…..my brother and I decided we should visit some facilities to determine if our Dad’s concerns were legitimate. You showed us several options, several levels of care we could afford and made the decision to relocate our Dad much easier. After a brief discussion with our Dad he too agreed that the facility you had recommended would fit his needs much better than him struggling to live alone in his home. Your knowledge, level of expertise and compassion made all the difference in the world for my brother and me as well as our Dad. I am certain we would not have been able to make this move without you and your guidance. The entire process was a sincere pleasure and we will forever appreciate the help we received from Always Best Care Senior Services. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Michele, "You did an amazing job of helping our Mom find the Assisted Living Facility that most suits her personality, needs and feeling of comfort as she makes the transition from her own home to assisted living. She was anxious, concerned and not particularly looking forward to the change, yet after seeing a variety of locations which could meet her needs and "like to haves" she was able to make a decision that same day and was ready to move in immediately. Our family was trying to find the best way to express our appreciation and gratitude for the efficient, timely and proactive way you put it all together in such a sort time and we thought the following might say it all about the service you and Always Best Care provided: A ttentive L istens W orks with you A ction oriented Y es they can approach S ympathetic B elieve in what they do E ffective S incere T ime sensitive C aring A vailable R esourceful E fficient It will be a pleasure to recommend the services of you and Always Best Care to friends and extended family members whenever possible." ~ Jeanne H., Safety Harbor, FL

Always Best Care Senior Services were utilized to evaluate Assisted Living Facilities following our 88 year old Mother's fall which caused a broken hip and approximately 2 months in a rehabilitation facility. Michele met with our family to determine my Mother's care needs and size and type of Assisted Living Facility that would meet these needs. Michele subsequently put together a package of information on the ALF's that met our requirements and were in our area. Once the discharge date was set by the rehab facility Michele arranged the ALF tours on an accelerated schedule until we had narrowed down our selection to two facilities. We were able to make an informed decision based on the information that she provided and moved our Mom into our first choice of facilities. Mom has been acclimating to the new environment and loves her new home. I learned about Always Best Care Senior Services via word of mouth from a neighbor and will certainly pass the favor along to some other family in need." ~ Robert S., Safety Harbor, FL
