Are your staff that deliver elderly care in Fairfield insured and bonded?

Of course.

To make sure we are able to offer the very best care we need to ensure that our people are fully bonded, insured and covered by Worker's Compensation. Every caregiver is directly employed by Always Best Care and we make certain that they can be relied upon to take care of your loved one.

How are Always Best Care's staff that provide home care in Fairfield vetted?

Every caregiver employed by us is intensively vetted before they are hired. Background checks are carried out, as are drug tests. All former employments are checked thoroughly and all references are contacted. Always Best Care wants to be able to guarantee the best senior care in Fairfield. In order to do that we must be certain that everybody who works for us is properly trained and displays professionalism at all times. When we interview potential caregivers we only look for people with the highest levels of integrity.

What hours do your staff provide senior care in Fairfield?

The requirements of elderly care in Fairfield are not straightforward and not everybody is going to need care for exactly the same hours. We give the highest assurances that caregivers are going to be available whenever they are needed, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. You can be safe in the knowledge that your relatives will be able to get the care they need, when they need it.

Will my loved one have the same caregiver to provide them in-home care in Fairfield on every visit?

As we consider the relationship between caregiver and your loved one to be of the utmost importance, we always try to make sure that the same caregiver makes every visit. However, even the best intentions in this area can sometimes be interrupted by sickness or vacations. On these occasions we will ensure that suitable substitutions are put in place. If your loved one has a care plan that requires visits both day and night then we will also need to allocate more than one caregiver. When providing in-home care in Fairfield we make consistency a critical consideration. We realize that we need to be trusted to treat our customers and their family compassionately. We understand that our elderly customers expect things to be done in a certain way and have routines that are important to them. We know that the trust placed in us has to be earned and we do this by ensuring that our caregivers fit around everybody's unique requirements. In order to achieve this we make sure that every caregiveris matched very carefully with each and every customer.

How will my loved one be matched with their caregiver that's responsible for providing their elderly care in Fairfield?

At Always Best Care we strongly believe that a perfect match between caregiver and the person who requires care is absolutely key to a successful relationship. The matching process we undertake is thorough. Firstly we make sure that we get to know our caregivers completely, understand them as individuals and know exactly the talents that each one brings to the role. Knowing our caregiver s as well as we do makes it much easier to match them with the perfect person to care for. We will of course find out from you your loved one's likes and dislikes, their routines, personality and what they expect in a caregiver. Putting likeminded people together is important to us. If you or your loved one is not happy with the caregiver provided then let us know and we will make immediate changes. A determination for the perfect match is why we provide the best senior care in Fairfield.

In order to ensure we provide the best home care in Fairfield we insist that all of our caregivers are trained across a wide range subjects related to care.

Why should I choose your home care in Fairfield instead of an independent provider?

At Always Best Care, we realize that you have a number of choices when you are looking for the best senior care in Fairfield for your loved one. We know that some independent providers of care offer what appears to be a similar service at very competitive prices. Going directly to an independent caregiver without the added expense of dealing with an established company may seem like a good idea but would you be getting the best care for your loved one? Always Best Care ensures that all itscaregivers are vetted, bonded, fully insured and trained to the highest levels expected in the industry. With an independent caregiver you are not guaranteed that.
