They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.
However, as seniors grow older, sometimes they cannot live independently without someone by their side to provide care. Unfortunately, some older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.
Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live in the comforts or their home rather than in an assisted living community. Home care in Manchester, CT is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.
Since 1996, Always Best Care has provided non-medical in-home care for seniors to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle as they age. We are proud to have helped tens of thousands of seniors to maintain a higher level of dignity and respect. We focus on providing seniors with the highest level of home care available so that they may live happily and independently.
Unlike some senior care companies, we genuinely want to be included in our clients' lives. We believe that personalized care is always the better option over a "one size fits all" approach. To make sure our senior clients receive the best care possible, we pair them with compassionate caregivers who understand their unique needs.
The Always Best Care difference lies in life's little moments - where compassionate care and trustworthy experience come together to help seniors live a fruitful, healthy life. Whether you are an aging adult that can't quite keep up with life's daily tasks or the child of a senior who needs regular in-home care services in Manchester, CT. Always Best Care is here to help.
Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it's especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.
The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.
At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one ages, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.
To give our senior clients the best care possible, we offer a full spectrum of in-home care services:
If your senior loved one has specific care needs, our personal care services are a great choice to consider. Personal care includes the standard caregiving duties associated with companion care and includes help with tasks such as dressing and grooming. Personal care can also help individuals with chronic conditions like diabetes or Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.
Sometimes, seniors need helpful reminders to maintain a high quality of life at home. If you or your senior has trouble with everyday tasks like cooking, our home helper services will be very beneficial.
Using this kind of care is a fantastic way to make life easier for you or your senior loved one. At Always Best Care, our talented caregivers often fill the role of a companion for seniors. That way, older adults can enjoy their favorite activities and hobbies while also receiving the care they need daily or weekly.
According to AARP, more than 53 million adults living in the U.S. provide care to someone over 50 years old. Unfortunately, these caregivers experience stress, exhaustion, and even depression. Our respite care services help family caregivers address urgent obligations, spend time with their children, and enjoy other activities. Perhaps more importantly, respite care gives family members time to recharge and regroup. Taking personal time to de-stress helps reduce the risks of caregiver burnout.
When it comes to non-medical home care, our goal is to become a valuable part of your senior's daily routine. That way, we may help give them the highest quality of life possible. We know that staying at home is important for your loved one, and we are here to help make sure that is possible. If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.
Always Best Care in-home services are for older adults who prefer to stay at home but need ongoing care that friends and family cannot provide. In-home care is a safe, effective way for seniors to age gracefully in a familiar place and live independent, non-institutionalized lives. The benefits of non-medical home care are numerous. Here are just a few reasons to consider senior care services from Always Best Care:
While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit.
In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a unfamiliar assisted living community, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.
How much does a senior's home truly mean to them?
A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old. With the help of elderly care in Manchester, CT, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.
Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors. Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.
For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like an assisted living community. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.
More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, can be less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.
With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care in Manchester, CT gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.
In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.
Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.
At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.
When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.
Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.
At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Manchester,CT understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.
Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.
Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.
The first step in getting quality in-home care starts with a personal consultation with an experienced Care Coordinator. This initial consultation is crucial for our team to learn more about you or your elderly loved one to discover the level of care required. Topics of this consultation typically include:
An assessment of your senior loved one
An in-depth discussion of the needs of your senior loved one to remain in their own home
Reviewing a detailed Care Plan that will meet your senior loved one's needs

MANCHESTER — A fire that started on the outside of the Pathfinders Club building on Norman Street around noon Thursday damaged the building but was brought under control quickly and caused “minimal damage under the circumstances,” town Fire Chief Daniel French said.
Michael Pohl, executive director of the Pathfinders Club, which hosts 28 meetings of substance-abuse recovery groups every week, said a neighbor across the street spotted the fire and notified someone who was cleaning on the second floor.
They notified people engaged in recovery counseling on the building’s lower level, below the main meeting room, and everyone got out safely, Pohl said.
The chief said Engine 4, based at the Highland Street station, was on the scene within three minutes, 30 seconds of the call. He described that as a rapid response time that helped firefighters bring the blaze under control before it could spread further.
“We were able to get a good hole in the roof, ventilate the fire, and knock it down, with minimal damage under the circumstances,” French said.
The town department’s other three fire companies eventually cleared other calls and joined in the response, he said, as the Glastonbury Fire Department provided station coverage in case of additional calls.
“I can’t say enough about the professional firefighters we have in our town who responded so quickly,” Pohl said, adding that Thursday’s windy conditions added to the challenge of fighting the fire.
He said a cleaning company was at work in the building today, adding that he was unsure whether there would be expenses not covered by insurance.
A Facebook fundraiser, entitled “Sarah’s fundraiser for the Pathfinders Association of Manchester CT Inc.,” had received 31 donations totaling $2,625 toward its $10,000 goal, according to information on Facebook this morning. Pohl said donations are tax deductible.
Pohl said he was looking for an alternative location for the recovery meetings “for a short period of time.”
He said the fire started in the area of a garbage can outside the building. French said that was on the Florence Street side of the building, which is on a corner lot.
The chief said the fire got into an exterior wall of the building “a little” and ran up the wall into the attic. Pohl said there was some structural damage as well as smoke, soot, and fire damage.
There is a sign over a window to the building’s main meeting room that reads, “Gratitude Changes Everything,” Pohl said.
“If that window had let go, we would have lost everything,” he said.
“We are incredibly grateful to our neighbor and the Fire Department,” Pohl said.

MANCHESTER, CT — Members of the Manchester Legislative Delegation are applauding what its members termed "the inclusion of significant funds to benefit Manchester initiatives" in the state budget.
It's millions of dollars.
The contingent includes House Majority Leader Jason Rojas (D – East Hartford, Manchester), State Reps. Geoff Luxenberg (D – Manchester), Jason Doucette (D – Glastonbury, Manchester) and Jeff Currey (D – East Hartford, Manchester, South Windsor), and State Sen. Steve Cassano (D – Manchester).
On Monday, the House of Representatives voted to approve the budget proposal and sent it to the Senate.
Manchester projects earmarked for funding include:
The state budget includes a motor vehicle tax rate cap reduction from 45 mills to 32.46 mills. Manchester will receive an estimated reimbursement of $1,712,853 for revenue loss because of the mill rate cap, according to the budget.
In 2021, the 21st Century Public Library Task Force recommended that Manchester build a new library after an expansion of the Mary Cheney Library was deemed unfeasible. The current square footage of the town's two libraries — 26,135 at Mary Cheney and 12,367 at the Whiton Branch — limits the ability to offer robust and simultaneous programs for patrons, officials have said.
Among its other recommendations, the task force said that Manchester's main library needs to be three times the square footage of Mary Cheney with adequate parking, flexible space design for multipurpose uses, private and group meeting and workspaces, and sustainable "green" design with efficient building systems.
Here's how the legislative contingent reacted:
Rojas: "The state budget that we passed makes key investments in our community and our residents. I am particularly pleased to see funding for our magnet schools included. This budget will go a long way to enhancing resources and shaping our future. I would like to thank Toni Walker, House Chair of the Appropriations Committee, and Sean Scanlon, House Chair of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee for their efforts to draft a state budget that continues to meet the moment for our state."
Luxenberg: "I have been working to make sure Manchester has a top-notch library system since I secured nearly $500,000 in bond funding to save the Whiton Branch in the north end from closing plus modernized and made it ADA accessible about 10 years ago. Now, we have delivered $5.5 million to construct a new main library in Manchester to meet the programmatic and educational needs across the entire community. It will also create local jobs and is a major savings to our taxpayers who will not have foot the bill with local property tax dollars."
Currey: "In the second year of the biennial state budget, we had the opportunity to make fiscal adjustments to better meet local needs and provide vital funding to all public schools through the adoption of a student-centered funding formula. While the administration did not support these efforts, this budget increases support for our districts' public schools and makes key investments to offset the ever-increasing cost of tuition at area schools of choice. The state budget will help stabilize local education budgets to ensure students in every community have the supports they need to succeed. Thank you to the House Chair of the Appropriations Committee, Toni Walker, and the House Chair of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding Committee, Sean Scanlon, for their work developing this budget."
Doucette: "I am proud to join my colleagues in support of a budget that brings home so many worthy specific funding items directed for Manchester. After hearing input from town and school officials and from constituents about urgent and pressing needs in Manchester, we got to work to help find the needed funding. I am grateful to my colleagues in the delegation as well as the House Appropriations and Finance Chairs for helping make it happen."
Cassano: "I'm very happy to have the strong working relationship I have with the House. Together, having both chambers working as one, Manchester truly benefits from this budget we've worked hard to develop and pass."

MANCHESTER — The town has long considered acquiring a large parcel of open space along the Glastonbury town line that officials say would be a worthwhile investment.
After deciding not to authorize purchasing the property last year, the Board of Directors now has another chance at acquiring it, with the property again hitting the market.
In September 2021, the Land Acquisition and Historic Property Investment Committee issued a favorable report to the Board of Directors on the purchase of 705 Keeney St.
The Metropolitan District Commission, which owns the land, had offered to sell the property to the town for $216,000.
After getting the recommendation, the Board of Directors privately discussed the issue during an executive session, Director Dennis Schain said.
But directors were unsure how the property fit into the town’s broader goal for land acquisition and ultimately decided not to take any action.
“It never gathered momentum to come for a vote,” Schain, who also sits on the Land Acquisition Committee, said.
According to information from the town, 705 Keeney St. is a 27-acre parcel in the southern section of town along the Glastonbury town line. The property has 174 feet of frontage along Keeney Street and bisects the neighborhoods between West Gerald Drive to the west and Gerald Drive to the east.
Directly south of the property is about 268 acres of former MDC land that Glastonbury acquired to preserve as passive open space.
Members of the Land Acquisition Committee said they believe the property would be a strategic and worthwhile acquisition because of the size of the parcel and the opportunity to connect the Nike site, north of the property, to open space in Glastonbury.
Although it is private property, the site is still used by people who traverse its steep topography using an existing north-south trail, according to heat mapping data from AllTrails.com.
Speaking during the public comment portion of Tuesday’s Board of Directors meeting, Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Eric Prause asked the Board of Directors to reconsider purchasing 705 Keeney St., which was re-listed for sale on April 15.
Prause, who also is a member of the Land Acquisition Committee, said that acquiring the property would create contiguous open space and provide critical trail connectivity. He said about $2 million is left in the town open-space fund.
“This is not something that we just came up with off the fly,” Prause said. “This has been part of a target property for the last 25 years.”
Prause encouraged the board to discuss the matter before the June 15 deadline to submit bids for the property. Since being re-listed for sale, the property has received prospective interest from six companies that have registered on the MDC’s bidding site, Prause said,
Establishing connectivity has been a focus for the town, whose 2021 Parks and Facilities Master Plan states the goal of providing new trail connections and completing gaps in existing facilities.
The town in 2018 used $300,000 of open-space bond funds to acquire 261 and 262 Center St. and 31 Pine St. for the purpose of extending the Cheney Rail Trail.
The Land Acquisition Committee was formed in 2017 after voters approved a $4 million bond to repair historic buildings and acquire property to preserve as open space. The group serves as an advisory board to the Board of Directors.
Schain said he was the only person on the seven-member committee to vote against the recommendation to the board to purchase 705 Keeney St., mainly because he wanted to compare that property to other open spaces under consideration.
But after Prause’s pitch on Tuesday, Schain said he asked General Manager Steve Stephanou to approach MDC “to see if we still have an opportunity to reconsider and revisit” buying the property.
“If it became clear that it really made sense to make this purchase, it’s something I would certainly consider,” Schain said.
