Yes. We do all that we can at Always Best Care to reassure families that their loved ones are in safe hands with our caregivers, and one small part of making them feel this way is by ensuring that all of our staff are fully insured and bonded. This protects any seniors in our home care in San Mateo against any theft or damage in their own property.
We also off complimentary Worker's Compensation for all of our staff so that if they do suffer any injuries while performing their caring duties, our insurance will cover any claims for damages.
Vetting plays a vital role in ensuring that we can offer the most reliable senior care in San Mateo, so we have a dedicated recruitment team in place to make sure that our vetting is as thorough as it can be.
Along with the usual job interviews and conversations with references, each applicant that applies for a role with Always Best Care also has to pass a criminal background check and a random drug test before they'll be offered a position with the company.
24/7. Yes, our caregiving services are available every second of every day, so you can pick and choose what time your loved one needs assistance without having to worry about whether or not we'll be available.
On top of this, our in-home care in San Mateo is open all year round, so it doesn't matter whether it's a sunny Monday morning in June or an overcast Christmas afternoon, your loved one can get the help they need and deserve.
Yes. We feel that it's important that a caregiver and a senior have the time to build a relationship. If a senior can learn to trust the person responsible for their home care in San Mateo, the whole experience can turn into something positive.
Sometimes, if a senior requires care at various times over the course of 24 hours, more than one caregiver will become responsible for looking after them on a daily basis.
If your loved one's caregiver becomes ill or takes some time off to go on vacation, we can arrange a substitute caregiver in short notice to take over in their absence. Please be assured that any substitute will be fully briefed in every aspect of your loved one's care, so any changeover will run smoothly.
We don't just match your loved one to a caregiver on a hunch, we actually take the time to get to know them so that we find them a caregiver that they have plenty in common with.
Finding out small details, such as your loved one's hobbies, interests, or even political affiliation, can make the world of difference when it comes to finding a caregiver that they enjoy being around.
We also take into account the amount of time it could potentially take a caregiver to travel to and from a senior's home, as well as the physical requirements of a senior that requires home care in San Mateo.
Every time a new employee joins us here at Always Best Care, they have to take part in a week's training course before they're allowed to begin providing elderly care in San Mateo on behalf of the company.
During the week, they're taught about every key aspect of home care, including how to detect symptoms, carry out a risk assessment, and communicate clearly.
It's also worth noting that all of our staff, irrespective of their experience, are expected to take part in yearly top-up training, where they'll learn everything they need to know about any new technology or equipment making its way into the industry.
For us, and a lot of families in the local community, it comes down to an issue of trust.
Independent providers have very rarely been vetted, let alone have any insurance or training, so it comes down to whether or not you'd feel comfortable leaving your loved one in their care.
The fully flexible nature of our in-home care in San Mateo also makes us an attractive proposition when compared to some of our rivals. Many independent contractors prefer to work more standard working hours, while our caregivers are available 24 hours a day.
We can set up every element of your loved one's in-home care in San Mateo in a matter of days, not weeks.
Our fast track service, which can take up to seven days, is designed to help families who need support as soon as possible.
No corners are cut during this process, and we'll take care of every last detail of arranging your loved one's care so that you don't have to worry about a thing.
A huge role. Nothing can compare to the understanding and love of a family member, so we want you to play as big a part in your loved one's elderly care in San Mateo as possible.
We'll always try to do our part by keeping you constantly updated about every detail of their behavior and health when you're not around.
There are no two ways about it: choosing a home care provider for your loved one is a complicated process. There are many companies offering what seems to the same services at widely varying prices.
To help families make some sense of everything, we invite them in for a sit down chat over a cup of coffee. We'll run through every last detail of our care, including our prices, so you can get a real idea as to whether Always Best Care is the right choice for your family moving forward.
During the chat, no question is off limits about our in-home care in San Mateo, and we'll even come up with a care plan for your loved one thenandthere.
In our line of work, safety is the cornerstone of everything we do. Our sole purpose is to keep your loved one happy and healthy, so you'll have to excuse us for being a little over the top with our safety precautions!
During their initial weeklong training course with the company, any new recruits are taught about how to spot symptoms of physical and mental illness. Along with that, they also learn how to make a property more senior friendly. This includes things such as improving lighting, reducing trip hazards, and adding handles or banisters to rooms that seniors can grip onto.
While they're carrying out elderly care in San Mateo, your loved one's caregiver will also assist with their mobility and suggest any equipment, such as a walker, that could make their mobility safer.
No. Part of our responsibility to the local community is to ensure that it's open to everyone, so we don't ask any of our clients to sign any long term contracts or agree to a minimum number of hours of in-home care in San Mateo.
This way, families are able to choose a caregiver to fit around their lifestyle and can change any arrangement whenever they so please.
Yes. We offer specialized home care in San Mateo for those living with dementia. Our caregivers have been trained how to respond to different behavioral aspects of the condition so that they can provide maximum comfort and reassurance.
Caregiving is a job that encompasses many different roles, as they often have to adapt to the situation around them. To try and give you an idea of how our home care in San Mateo could benefit your loved one, we've come up with a typical list of duties, below:
Yes. We can provide senior care in San Mateo on a short-term basis. We often find families that provide full-time care for their loved one struggle to find cover for their duties when they want to go away on vacation.
Our fully trained and vetted caregivers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so they can step in when you need them most.
We know that exceptional service sets us apart from all other home care companies. All of our team members and caregivers receive comprehensive training before being assigned to a care plan. Our standard is that "we only hire care providers we would have care for our own loved ones."
Always Best Care provides in-home care services from as little as one hour per day up to 24-hour care, and up to 7 days a week. Whatever your care needs are, Always Best Care is there for you.

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.

I can't say enough good things about these folks. But the one thing that is at the top of my list is the way they sincerely cared for Mom. This wasn't just some helpers showing up every day and putting their time in. Each of them cared for Mom in a way that was respectful and kind. I was also very impressed with the flexibility in their scheduling. If Mom was ill and needed help around the clock, they made it happen. I'm so glad they were there for her.

Once again, my experience with Always Best Care has been extraordinary. Since 2010, Angela and her staff have helped our family through a variety of medical difficulties with my parents. From the overwhelming moment my Mom was diagnosed with Dementia to several operations for my Dad, the caregivers and the quality of service has been awesome. We truly do not know what we would do without them.
