Meet the Team

Bonnie & Neil Zwack

President & Vice President

Neil and I were born and raised in the Minneapolis area and lived there until we moved to the desert 18 years ago to retire. Because Neil had owned his own business and I had worked for 20 years as a real estate closer, we both had part-time jobs to “keep us occupied”. While living in our retirement community, I witnessed my friends and neighbors struggling with options for one or both of their parents as they aged and could not be left alone. Neil and I also witnessed the shameful care that our grandparents endured in the “nursing home” system years ago. My desire to make a difference and to be able to help families navigate the system, led us to Always Best Care. After 8 years of devoting my life to our seniors, I believe that I was “led” to this calling. I no longer consider this a job, it is my vocation. Knowing that I have given families peace of mind by offering my time, my passion and my support comes back to me two-fold and I truly love what I do!

Brett Shepard

Community Liaison

Hello everyone, my name is Brett Shepard I have lived in the Coachella Valley my entire life with the exception of attending the University of Arizona. Upon my return to the Valley I tried my hand in a couple of different industries from the casino industry to medical staffing where I came across what I believe to be my calling. My position here at Always Best Care is a community Liaison, meaning I am the connection from this company to dozens of facilities, country clubs, and everyday places that our residents of this great town frequent. I am a firm believer in the simple fact the truth builds trust and the truth of it is, we have salt of the earth owners, an amazing staff and the backbone of our company our caregivers are like none others. I strive every day to educate and inform the Coachella valley on our service and what we can do to simplify yours and your loved one’s life.
