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 Torrance 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 Torrance 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 Torrance, 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 Torrance 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 Torrance.
If you're looking for advice on the best elderly care in Torrance, 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 Torrance 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 Torrance, 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 Torrance 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 Torrance.

I recently used the services of Always Best Care to find a place for my mother who is relocating from San Diego. Carrie and David spent several hours with me showing me many board and care and assisted living facilities in the South Bay. Carrie and David were both very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the type of care my mother would need as well as the best places for her in this area. They worked closely with me to determine the facilities that would provide appropriate care for my mother based on her current as well as future condition. They also made recommendations based on our budget. After a thorough review and additional site visits, my siblings and I ended up selecting the facility that was the one originally recommended by ABC! The bottom line is these people really know their stuff and I can not recommend them more highly.

I have been using Always Best Care for over a year-and-a-half. We began by having a strategy meeting with one of ABC's Marketing Reps to compose a comprehensive needs profile for a close 91 year-old senior friend of mine whose personal affairs I have been hired to oversee as an administrator. In a subsequent meeting in the senior's home, I was introduced to ABC's Placement Coordinator who brought not just one but three potential candidates for me to interview and evaluate. You can't always get a full feeling for the appropriateness of a candidate by merely reading their resume or hearing about their experience over the phone. By having the candidates meet with me in person, Always Best Care offered a much for effective way for me to find the right person to provide care for my friend. Over time I didn't really even need to interview prospective candidates because the Placement Coordinator was so familiar with my wants and needs that I trusted her judgment implicitly. The business of Senior Services is not an exact science, and there have been occasional times when a caregiver was not a good match for my senior friend; however, all I had to do was call Always Best Care's office, and they immediately provided another caregiver to meet our needs. When I first used Always Best Care, I was splitting the caregiver hours with another Senior Service Agency (that shall remain nameless), and in just a few months time I switched our entire account over to Always Best Care. I continue to utilize their services for my senior friend, and feel very confident in recommending their services to anyone who requires quality home care for a beloved senior in their life.

Where do I start? My family has been a customer of Always Best Care for the last year and a half. I wouldn't trust my mother's care to anyone but Carrie Bianco and her team. I was lucky enough to be referred to Carrie by a family friend and am so grateful. The staff at Always Best Care is beyond compassionate and will go the extra mile for their clients. Cleints become like family and are treated as such. If you need assistance with a loved one, call Carrie. You don't need to do anything else. Your questions will be answered and your loved one cared for. They can also help with Assisted Living and finding the rght place. I can't say enough about this business. These days it's hard to find a business owner that has her heart in her business and does what she loves.

After having no luck with several other caregiver companies, we were lucky to find Carrie and her Always Best Care Services company. What a God send! Caring for our 86 year old father with advancing Alzheimers was challenging, to say the least. I can’t imagine how we could have made it through to his eventual passing without Carrie and her team.Carrie was hands on, compassionate, understanding, patient, but most importantly always came through and delivered as the situation changed and things got tougher. I would recommend Carrie and ABC to anyone, without hesitation.

I find myself talking about you and ABC to many people lately. You were a blessing to me and my dad. I had so many rough days with other agencies and with ABC it was as if a bolder was lifted from my shoulders.
