Senior Care in South San Diego

Are your caregivers insured and bonded?

Yes. When it comes to choosing home care in South San Diego, it's critical that you find a caregiver you can trust completely with your loved one. Providing the best care possible means making sure our senior caregivers are bonded, insured and covered by Worker's Compensation. Every senior care provider on our team is an integral employee of Always Best Care, which means that you can always trust them to do what's right and in the best interest of your loved one.

How are Always Best Care's caregivers vetted?

We strive to provide the best home care in South San Diego and throughout the region in communities such as Coronado, Ocean Beach, Point Loma, North Park, Downtown, Encanto, Skyline, Bonita, Chula Vista, Eastgate and South Bay. That's why we work so hard to ensure that every caregiver on our team is not only a trained professional, but has the integrity and character necessary to represent our high standards when they care for your loved one. Every senior caregiver must go through a rigorous and thorough vetting process before hiring. This entails a criminal background check, drug screening and a comprehensive evaluation of references and past work history.

What hours are caregivers available?

Seniors who require in home care in South San Diego need to know that help is available at all times throughout the day. Every senior has unique needs, the care for which should not be constrained to limited hours. Always Best Care's caregivers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and our scheduling experts work directly with families to ensure that seniors never need to worry about receiving care when they need it.

Will my loved one have the same caregiver every visit?

Yes, in many circumstances. However, illness, scheduled time off and other factors may necessitate temporary substitution. Additionally, if your loved one requires care at different times of day or for many hours at a time, it will be necessary to schedule multiple caregivers. One of the most crucial aspects to providing quality senior care in South San Diego is consistency. Seniors become accustomed to trusted, loving family members who provide compassionate care, and they learn to count on having things done a certain way. We strive to ensure that our caregivers earn that level of trust. This is done through a comprehensive matching process, which allows caregivers to build strong relationships with the seniors to whom they provide care.

How will my loved one be matched with a caregiver?

The proper fit is a significant aspect of the in home caregiving process, which is why we work hard to make ideal matches between seniors and their caregivers. At Always Best Care San Diego South, we know our diverse team of caregivers well, and understand what makes them unique as individuals. This allows us to take into account your senior loved one's preferences, likes and dislikes in a way that matches them perfectly with the right provider. And if we don't get it exactly right the first time, we'll reevaluate to ensure that your special senior receives the proper care from the perfect individual.

How are caregivers trained?

Every senior caregiver on our team receives extensive training upon hiring in addition to ongoing training to ensure that they are kept up to date with the latest standards and techniques in our industry. Our in home caregivers are trained on communication, activities planning, recognizing symptoms of illnesses, safety and a number of other issues that are pertinent to providing the finest senior care in South San Diego.

Why should I use an Always Best Care caregiver instead of an independent provider?

Home care providers can be found in a number of places, with many offering services and prices that seem too good to be true (and probably are too good to be true). Sure, you can find independent caregivers that would seem to save you time and money by cutting out the "middle man," but you can never be sure that they can be trusted with your loved one - they simply can't be held to the high standards of excellence that are required of the caregivers on the Always Best Care team. Our compassionate senior caregivers are fully vetted, insured, bonded and kept up to date with the latest training, so you know you can trust them to provide the finest senior care in South San Diego.

How quickly can my loved one expect to begin receiving in home care?

If you are concerned about the time it takes to get the ball rolling on receiving senior care for your loved one, you may be surprised by how quickly Always Best Care can match you with a compassionate caregiver. The process of matching a caregiver with your senior loved one is a thorough and comprehensive one, but thanks to our experience, expertise and ability to attract the best caregivers in South San Diego, your loved one can expect to receive home care services within a week of making your first call to us.

What role do family members play once a caregiver has been hired?

One of the more challenging aspects of hiring an in home senior care provider is the shifting role of family. However, you can rest assured knowing that part of our process is making sure that family members always feel like they are crucial members of the caregiving team. Our goal at Always Best Care is to provide home care in a harmonious, integrative and inclusive fashion.

How do I know if Always Best Care is the right choice for in home care?

When selecting the right in home care provider in South San Diego, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices that are available for your loved one. We can't speak to the effectiveness, safety and reliability of other senior care providers in South San Diego, but we proudly stand behind our record of offering compassionate care that seniors in our area - and their family members - can count on. If you're skeptical about the tremendous quality of service we offer, we urge you to schedule a free consultation with us.

What steps are taken to ensure the safety of my senior loved one?

Safety is an essential cornerstone of providing the best in home senior care in South San Diego. Our caregivers are trained on the most up-to-date safety procedures, and they receive ongoing instruction to ensure that they always know how to keep your loved one as safe as possible in the home, while running errands or performing household chores. They can also take steps to make sure that your loved one's home is free from the hazards that can lead to falls, accidents and other mishaps.

Do I need to sign a contract or agree to an hourly minimum?

No! It's important to us here at Always Best Care that families have access to the finest senior care available in South San Diego, so we do not require you to agree to receive a certain number of hours or a minimum tier of services. We mold our services to the needs of your loved one. Nothing more; nothing less.

Do you provide care for individuals suffering from Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia?

Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia affect millions of seniors across the country and right here in South San Diego. We recognize the unique and specific needs of those who suffer from these diseases, and our caregivers are well trained to assist families when it comes to ensuring the greatest comfort, care and ease of living. Alzheimer's Disease and dementia present challenges that can seem impossible to overcome, but our in home caregivers are able to provide the specialized care that loved ones like yours require.

What types of services do in-home caregivers provide on a day-to-day basis?

In home care in South San Diego means different things for different seniors. That's why our caregivers are trained in a number of wide-ranging care areas. Some of the services that they can provide include:

What is respite care?

If you are a family member providing home care to a senior loved one on a consistent basis, you may be wondering what you can do during those periods of time when you are unable to be present. For example, if you are ill, on vacation or otherwise unable to provide in home care, you may feel like you have no one to turn to. Respite care allows you to hire one of our well-trained and highly experienced caregivers temporarily so you can step away from your loved one for short-term intervals. If you've ever wondered how you can maintain consistent care of your loved one while you are unable to do so yourself, respite care service from Always Best Care is the answer!

*Because Always Best Care is compensated by our contracted assisted living communities, we are happy to provide our senior housing and assisted living referral services at no charge to you.

Learn more and FAQs

Is your senior care provider that delivers in-home care in San Diego insured?

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 Diego to Always Best Care.

What hours does your in-home care provider offer in San Diego?

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 Diego 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.

Will my loved one have the same caregiver providing them in-home care in San Diego with every visit?

To be able to provide the finest senior care in San Diego, 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.

How are Always Best Care caregivers trained to provide senior care in San Diego?

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 Diego 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.

How quickly can my loved one expect to begin receiving home care in San Diego?

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 Diego.

How do I know if Always Best Care is the right choice for in-home care in San Diego?

What steps are taken to ensure that my loved one's senior care in San Diego is safe?

One of the most important aspects of home care in San Diego 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.

Do you provide in-home care in San Diego for individuals suffering from Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia?

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 Diego, 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.
