Meet the Owners

Jon and Emily Brandt


Jon and Emily Brandt moved to the Central Coast in 2000 when Jon retired after 20 years with the Marines. Jon is the local owner and general manager of Always Best Care Senior Services on the Central Coast. With this business he serves his neighbors throughout Monterey County by providing compassionate in-home attendant care for adults needing help with their activities of daily living. Jon joined the Salinas Valley Chamber of Commerce and opted to become an Ambassador in which he enjoys meeting Chamber members and promoting the value of a connected and interactive community.

Always looking for ways to improve the lives of others, he volunteers in several capacities locally. He is a Watch Lead with the Los Olivos-Riker Neighborhood Association (LORNA). He drives with ITN Monterey and Meals on Wheels Salinas Valley as well as sitting on the Board of Meals on Wheels SalinasValley.

When they can, Jon and Emily enjoy exploring the parks, reserves and trails. They also spend time working to raise funds and awareness for several worthy causes. The most notable of those being the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, iTN, Children’s Miracle Network, and Meals on Wheels Salinas Valley.
