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 Marlborough, 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 Marlborough, 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 Marlborough, 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 Marlborough, 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 Marlborough,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

College football can be a fickle business, but the wheel just keeps on turning. And three-star athlete Kahlil Ali has given Pitt fans a little bit of hope.
Ali, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete from Pennsauken High School in New Jersey, narrowed a list of offers from Akron, Buffalo, Boston College, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Florida State, Illinois, Louisville, Maryland, Miami, Michigan State, Nebraska, Old Dominion, Ole Miss, Pitt, Penn State, Rutgers, Syracuse, Temple, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia to his Top 5 — with all receiving official visits.
With official visits to Boston College, Cincinnati, Louisville, Pitt and West Virginia, Ali has locked in his Top 5.
Ali was a two-way threat as a junior at Pennsauken, impacting the game as a running back/wide receiver slasher and a defensive back. He ran for 73 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries and hauled in 25 passes for 424 yards (17 yards per reception) and six touchdowns. He also added 25 tackles (21 solo), a tackle for loss, three interceptions, four passes defended, a forced fumble and two recoveries — scoring once on defense and once on special teams.
While Ali is listed as an athlete, who played well offensively and defensively as a junior at Pennsauken, his game is tailor-made for a strong defensive back.
247Sports rates him as the 377th-ranked recruit in the class of 2023 (the 35th-ranked safety and the sixth-ranked recruit from New Jersey) while Rivals rates him as the 47th-ranked athlete and the eighth-ranked recruit from New Jersey.
Ali has visited Pitt twice already, once in January and again in March, and he expressed how he’d been able to feel the genuine love with Pitt’s staff — including Pat Narduzzi and Cory Sanders.
“That is definitely playing a part in my recruitment,” Ali told PSN before his January visit. “In the end, it’s going to be important for me to go to a program that really wants me and shows me real love. Pitt is definitely doing that and is a real option right now so it’s going to be important for me to get up there and learn more about them and to see what they have to offer, like I said. But by getting the chance to talk with them and build our relationship, I can tell how much they want me.”
Ali’s official Pitt visit is scheduled for June 17, between trips to Cincinnati and Boston College and West Virginia and Louisville. A strong official visit could be the piece Pitt needs to secure a top secondary target in the class of 2023 — the third time’s the charm, after all.
Pitt has landed in the finalist tier for a couple of 2023 recruits over the last few weeks, including: three-star tight end Vance Bolyard (Greensboro, North Carolina), three-star defensive end Kamari Burns (Columbus, Ohio), three-star cornerback Jermaine Mathews (Cincinnati, Ohio), four-star defensive end Desmond Umeozulu (Upper Marlboro, Md.), four-star offensive lineman Amir Herring (West Bloomfield, Mi.), four-star defensive end Dashawn Womack (Baltimore, Md.) and three-star offensive lineman Jordan Church.

If you still need a gift for mom, there is some time left to get a last-minute bouquet or box of chocolates
MARLBOROUGH, Conn. — Mother’s Day is Sunday, and local florists and shops are working round the clock to fulfill orders for this special spring weekend.
Leah O'Hearn, the shop's owner, said Mother's Day is a "high volume holiday," even more than in years past.
"We are rockin' and rollin' with flower arrangements out for delivery, for pick up, we’ve got flowers, plants, candles, you name it, any give for mom, we got it,” O'Hearn said.
Ranunculus has resources and wholesale suppliers that have been helpful in making business bloom, but some product has been affected by persisting supply chain issues.
"It was hard to get hydrangeas this week. The quantity that I normally buy, I just couldn't get what I wanted," O'Hearn said.
That doesn't deter clients from finding the perfect bouquet, according to O'Hearn.
"Our customers are so adaptable. They know what they get is going to be beautiful."
Holidays like this are an opportunity for folks to support local businesses.
"It is so important to use your mom and pop shops," O'Hearn said. "There are a lot of 800 numbers you can call and a lot of online companies...they're not real people in your community."
A gift for mom can also be a sweet gift for these small businesses like Divine Treasures over in Manchester, offering plenty of Mother’s Day chocolates and specializing in vegan chocolate options.
“It means a lot especially in today’s economy that they are choosing our products,” Divine Treasures owner, Diane Wagemann, said,
So whether that special mom in your life is your mother, wife, sister, or some other maternal figure, supporting local businesses this week is also special to them.
“We have had amazing customers who are constantly supporting us because they want to see us stay alive,” Wagemann, said.
If you still need a gift for mom, there is some time left to get a last-minute bouquet; but with the time crunch, the designer may end up choosing the arrangement.

EAST HAMPTON – The CT Draft Horse Rescue is sponsoring its 10th annual low-cost gelding clinic on Saturday, May 7, at 113 Chestnut Hill Road. The rain date is Sunday, May 8.
Since the start of this vital program, the CDHR has helped over 100 equines and horse owners in need with the issue of unwanted horses. Veterinary students from Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, under the direct supervision of both Tuft’s and local veterinarians, volunteered their time and expertise to perform the gelding.
The program was developed based on a philosophy that the castration of a stallion will help prevent accidental, backyard, or overbreeding, thereby reducing the number of unwanted horses being born. Pre-registration is required. The rescue will be closed to the public on this day.
Registration is required. Visit https://www.ctdraftrescue.org/geldingclinic2022 for more information or to fill out an application.
EAST HAMPTON – Dr. Mike Dietz, a professor at UConn, will give a talk on ways East Hampton residents who live on Lake Pocotopaug and those in the watershed can help prevent nutrients, chemicals, oil, dirt, bacteria, and sediment from entering into the lake and fostering the growth of algae.
The talk will be held on Thursday, May 5, in the East Hampton Town Hall’s Community Room, 1 Community Drive, at 7 p.m. The talk is sponsored by the East Hampton Conservation & Lake Commission.
The presentation is open to the public and those unable to attend may participate by Zoom and YouTube. For further information, contact EHC&LC member Marty Podskoch at [email protected] or 860-267-2442.

Nassau residents and local officials expressed outrage at what they deemed antisemitic comments made at a Rockville Centre board meeting.
The board was discussing a home in Marlborough Court with a large menorah in front of it.
A resident identifying herself as Michelle Zangari responded to the discussion with what some say were antisemitic remarks.
"This is very emotional for anyone who lives through the transformation of the Five Towns, many of those people live in Rockville Centre now," Zangari said. "It began exactly this way. Rabbis and their families purchased homes, creating small synagogues. Congregants then looked to buy property nearby."
Zangari then went on to say, "I am asking you to amend the village code so that a synagogue cannot be on every residential street like they are on the Five Towns. Please believe me and every Five Towns transplant that it can happen because we watched it happen."
Village Mayor Francis Murray responded at the meeting by saying, "The board will be very concerned and look into it immediately."
Zangari wrote a letter to Rabbi Mendel Gurkov, who owns the home, saying she never intended to create feelings of divisiveness.
"This is my private home, but as a Chabad, I believe my home should also be a source of anyone who needs that knowledge about Judaism or anything at all," Gurkov says. "Like a favor, food, clothes or anything, to be able to knock on my door and ask personally."
In response, Gov. Kathy Hochul, Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman and Rep. Tom Suozzi said on Twitter that these comments were antisemitic and should have been condemned.
Hochul said, "The despicable and antisemitic rhetoric used at a Rockville Centre board of trustees meeting has no place in our state. We must root out hate wherever it rears its ugly head."
Blakeman said in part, "Freedom to practice religion and freedom to live where one chooses are rights guaranteed by the Constitution…It is the duty of responsive public officials to condemn the type of antisemitic hate speech that was in evidence at the Rockville Centre Village Board Meeting."
Rep. Suozzi said in part, "Regardless of the intent of the speaker, the remarks are antisemitic and must be called out."
Some residents still were left confused about why the menorah was in front of the house.
"I completely believe in freedom of religion and freedom of expression but Hanukkah ended five months ago so I'm just wondering why it's still up and what's going on in that house where they feel the need to keep that up," says Kenneth Nugent.
Gurkov says the menorah is a symbol to let other Jewish people know that a Chabad rabbi lives there.
"As a Chabad rabbi we enhance the community in any way in which the community needs," Gurkov says.
Video playback of the meeting from April 4 can be found on the village's website.
Rockville Centre's board issued a statement, saying in part, "Rockville Centre remains a welcoming, caring and inclusive community that embraces all members of the village."
Rabbi Gurkov says he wants an official apology from the village.
"The content of what was said was prejudice," Gurkov says. "I believe there has to be a response and a pathway forward."
