Meet the Team
Owner and Administrator
My name is Diane Mathis, my Husband Bill Mathis and I started Always Best Care over 10 years ago in San Diego, California. I am a Mother of six and grandmother of 3. I was born and raised in San Diego, and have been a nurse for nearly 30 years with most of my experience in Physical Rehabilitation and Home Health. I enjoy providing exceptional care to my patients by employing only the most caring and educated staff. As a Nurse and having an aging parent and family members myself, I have experienced both sides of caring for and educating our senior population. I personally understand the difficulties that come with making life changing decisions for our patients and their families. Our goal is to be a source of information as well as caring for your loved one’s healthcare needs.
My Name is Bill Mathis. Diane and I have owned and operated ABC San Diego for more than 10 years. My previous career was in Information Technology as a Chief Technology Officer for more than 20 years. I found the senior industry to be a lot more satisfying and heartwarming that I sometimes wonder why I took the long way around.
I oversee the business from keeping us Medicare compliant to bringing in new Insurance companies. I network a lot in San Diego and Always Best Care is a name most have heard.
We provide a full line of services from free daily calls to Medicare certified Home Health and everything in between. If it’s senior services you need, look no further. Dedicated to Exceeding Your Expectations…Always
