An in-home care provider that is insured protects you and your loved one against theft. This is a very important question to ask any outside contractor or in-home care provider before they are hired. For your added peace of mind, Always Best Care provides our employees with Worker's Compensation as well. That means if they suffer from an accident while working in your loved one's home, you're protected against any claims or damages. While these protections benefit you and your loved one, they also directly benefit our staff, meaning we are able to attract some of the finest caregivers that provide elderly care in San Bruno to Always Best Care.
We try to make your life as easy as possible, so our caregivers are typically available 24-hours a day and 365 days of the year. We understand that each senior in-home care agency in San Bruno has different requirements, yet with Always Best Care, it doesn't matter whether your loved one needs help getting dressed first thing in the morning or whether they need someone to tuck them at night, our caregivers are available to help them around the clock.
To be able to provide the finest senior care in San Bruno, we think it's vital that a caregiver and our seniors have an opportunity to build a strong relationship with each other. Trust is such an important aspect of caregiving that without it, all parties may suffer. However, our caregivers are allowed requested vacations each year and there may be times when they become ill. If they do take a break or are suffering from a bug, a substitute caregiver will become responsible for your loved one's care. In these situations, we try to inform the substitute caregiver on all of your loved one's likes and dislikes, so disruptions are kept to a bare minimum. If your loved one requires care during the morning, afternoon, and evening, an additional caregiver will be scheduled as part of your loved one's daily care routine. We do this to ensure that every member of staff has enough time to recharge their batteries between working hours.
Before our caregivers are allowed to begin working for Always Best Case, they must go through introductory training. Our caregivers are trained according to the state of CA specifications as well as received further specialized training. This is just to ensure that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect from our caregivers. During this training, they will brush up on their symptom spotting, safety awareness, and communication skills, so that your loved one is assured of the highest level of home care in San Bruno from day one. Every year, our staff also has to undergo further training to make sure that they are up-to-date with the latest caregiving techniques and technology.
Thanks to our resources and expertise, we are able to offer a very timely turnaround service from the first moment you get in contact with us. We'll arrange your loved one's care plan, nutritional diet, schedule, and match them to the most appropriate caregiver. This quick turnaround time is just one of the numerous reasons why we're renowned for offering the most flexible home care in San Bruno.
If you're looking for advice on the best elderly care in San Bruno, you'll undoubtedly start your search online. Sometimes, however, it's best to talk to an actual person to get the answers to the questions you're looking for, which is why we offer a consultation service to any family considering choosing Always Best Care for their loved one. We'll run you through everything you need to know, from the level of detail we put into our care plans to our transparent pricing plans, so that you can make an informed decision on your loved one's future.
One of the most important aspects of home care in San Bruno should be safety. Our staff is trained to be able to assess a senior's home so that they can spot any potential hazards that could lead to an accident. We will carry out a safety assessment on your loved one's property before we begin our caregiving service. The assessment will advise on the small ways in which we can make your loved one's home safer, such as by introducing grab rails in hallways and showers. During your time with Always Best Care, your loved one's caregiver will continually monitor your loved one's mobility and will advise on any specific equipment or technology that they feel would make their life easier.
We certainly do. Dementia can have a devastating effect on the lives of our clients and their families. For our in-home care clients in San Bruno, we've introduced a specifically trained group of caregivers to keep any disruptions to a minimum. They're trained on how to respond to certain behavioral aspects of this condition in an attempt to give the person with dementia the highest level of comfort possible. What's more, they'll also provide support to the families as we know how upsetting it can be to see your loved one acting out of character.
Our team of caregivers can provide a number of different services to help make the life of your loved one a little easier. This includes but is not limited to:
If you're still not convinced that Always Best Care can provide the senior care in San Bruno that your loved one needs, get in touch with us today to find out about some of the other services our team of incredibly talented caregivers can provide.
Yes. Respite care is a service we offer to families that are responsible for the care of their loved ones. There may be an occasion, for example, where you can't provide the necessary in-home care for your loved one for a short period of time because of other responsibilities. In these circumstances, one of our fully vetted and trained caregivers can step into the void to make sure that your loved one is well looked after. It doesn't matter if you've got a long vacation planned or if you just have some small workplace duties to attend to, our expertise and resources can arrange a suitable replacement for their care in just a few days. It's just one of the reasons why we're the right choice for home care in San Bruno.

I was in a very dark space when I was looking for a place for my mom and I was referred to you by our social worker at Kaiser and a young lady named Shannon called me and she came to meet with me and my mom and she was with me every step of the way from beginning to end to help find me a place for her. She was very in tune with our budget and the needs that I had for my mom and she did not stop until we found the perfect place this past February. I was crying and shaking and melting down on the day that I had to move my mom and I realized that I couldn't do this on my own. So Shannon came over and she hugged me and she told me you don't have to do this on your own! She gave my mom a bath and we packed her things and she took her on over to the place for me and then I came 2 hours later with my son. I will never forget Shannon and the help that she gave to me and my family. She knew what an emotional wreck I was and how I felt like there were dark clouds all over my house and she brought the light and the peace back to our home through Seniorly.

Angela and her team have been helping me with my Dad for the last 4 years. As my Dad's needs have changed ABC has come to my rescue. I started out needing someone to help me for a couple hours. We progressed to a point that my Dad needed 24 hr care. Angela provided around the clock care in my Dad's home until his health stabilized. After his stabilization, Angela helped me find a wonderful Board & Care facility where my Dad has been living for two years. Last year, when I found that I could no longer take my Dad on outings by myself, Angela started sending Mark to accompany us on outings. ABC has been there for us every step of the way. I would not think twice about calling them for help and I would recommend them in an instant.

You can not get a better working partner than Angela Encarnacion From Best Care Senior Services. Her professionalism and caring attitude made it so smooth to place a new resident in our RCFE home, both for the family and us. It is such a difficult and challenging situation to transfer an elder to a Board and Care but she was the in between person that just made the move a huge success. I am so impressed how detail oriented, punctual and knowledgeable she is. Her experience just facilitates any transaction because she has already thought of what is needed and its already taken care of before the situation arises. Just fabulous! Can't get Best Care Senior Services than what Angela offers!
