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

Of course. Having fully insured and bonded caregivers protects your loved one against any theft or damage to their home. In fact, we'd go as far as to advise you to only choose a provider of senior care in Jacksonville if they offer this service as standard.
Not only that, are employees are all covered by Worker's Compensation, so if they suffer any injury while in your loved one's home, we'll foot the bill, not you.

How are your staff that provide home care in Jacksonville vetted?

Our vetting process is one of the most extensive in the industry. We take this strict approach as we only want to supply the best senior care in Jacksonville, and to be able to do that, we have to have the best staff.
Even if our recruitment team are impressed with a candidate's character and experience in an interview, they'll still have to pass a criminal background check, drug screening, and be referenced checked before they're able to take up the role.

What hours do your staff provide in-home care in Jacksonville?

We know from our decades of experience that every family's needs are different. And we also know that providing elderlycare in Jacksonville isn't your typical 9-5 job. That's why here at Always Best Care, our caregivers are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. It doesn't matter whether your loved one needs a hand getting up out of bed on Christmas morning or if they need tucking into bed on New Year's Eve, a senior's needs never stop, so we don't either.

Will my loved one have the same caregiver to provide them senior care in Jacksonville on every visit?

Yes and no. We always match your loved one to the most suitable caregiver, who will then become responsible for your loved one's care for as long as you're happy for them to do so. We believe that by having the same caregiver for each visit, your loved one will start to feel more comfortable in their care, and hopefully over time, will even start to see them as a friend.
There may be odd occasions, however, when a substitute caregiver may have to step in to handle your loved one's care for a short period of time. All of our caregivers are advised to stay off work if they become ill to reduce the risk of them passing on the bug to your loved one. In a scenario such as this, a substitute caregiver that has been briefed in your loved one's preferences will step in.
It's also worth considering the hours of the day that your loved one will require in-home care in Jacksonville. If for example, they need help to get out of bed in the morning and being tucked in at night, it's extremely likely that a minimum of two caregivers will be involved in your loved one's care. This is just to ensure that every caregiver has an appropriate amount of time to rest in between shifts, otherwise, the standards of their care may fall.

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

The physical requirements of your loved one's home care in Jacksonville is one of the first things we take into consideration. That's because some staff may be unsuited to roles where they have to help a senior get out of a bed or chair.
After that, we look at personality. We'll ask you or your loved one to fill out the same quick questionnaire that all of our new caregivers have to once they join the company. From that, we'll match up any interests, such as a love of jazz music, to try and find the perfect match for your loved one.
We find that by having some interests in common, it helps to build a bit of common ground that makes the process more comfortable for your loved one.

How are your caregivers trained to provide senior care in Jacksonville?

The large majority of staff that we take on at Always Best Care have some prior experience of caregiving, but despite this, we still ask them to take part in a week's worth of induction training before they begin any new role. This is just to help them to understand the high standards of care we expect from all of our caregivers, while the week also gives them the opportunity to brush up on any areas that they may be a little rusty.
Even members of staff that have been with us for a number of years still have to take part in yearly refresher training courses that involve learning about the latest technology and care treatments available in the industry.
This is all done to ensure that Always Best Care supply the safest elderly care in Jacksonville.

Why should I choose your elderly care in Jacksonville instead of an independent provider?

To say it's a little confusing choosing a senior care provider in Jacksonville would be somewhat of an understatement. With widely varying prices and differences between the levels of care hard to establish, we wouldn't blame you for feeling a little overwhelmed.
All we can do is remind you of the high standards that our caregivers have to reach on a daily basis. The fact they are bonded, insured, vetted, trained, and monitored should fill you with the confidence that by choosing Always Best Care, you know your loved one is in safe hands.

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

While many of our competitors that supply senior care in Jacksonville take weeks to set up their services, we offer all of our clients a rapid, seven-day turnaround service at no extra cost should they require it.
During that short time period we'll arrange and sort out all elements of your loved one's care, so you don't have to worry about a thing.

What role do family members play in their loved one's elderly care in Jacksonville once a caregiver has been hired?

We actively encourage families to play as large a role in their loved one's life as possible, as the social interaction they provide can be better than any form of medicine.
With Always Best Care, you can feel safe in the knowledge that we'll treat you like a member of our team – every piece of information that is passed onto us will be passed onto you.
By working together, we can ensure that your loved one's experience with in-home care in Jacksonville is a positive one.

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

You've probably spent a fair bit of time reading through all of the content on our website, so why not come and join us for a chat?
We offer free no obligation consultations with every new family that is interested in receiving home care in Jacksonville. We'll run you through every last detail about our care and happily answer any questions you might have. Hopefully, by the end of our consultation, you'll be able to make an informed decision as to whether Always Best Care is the right choice for your loved one.

What steps are taken to ensure that my loved one's in-home care in Jacksonville is safe?

The odd accident or mishap is just part of life, but one of our main duties as responsible caregivers is to try and reduce the likelihood of your loved one causing any harm to themselves.
Before we begin our elderly care in Jacksonville, a caregiver will carry out a safety assessment on your loved one's home. They'll then produce a written report detailing any changes that we think are necessary, and that point, the ball falls back into your court to implement them.
Your assigned caregiver will also monitor your loved one's mobility at all times. If they're worried at any point, they may advise the use of specialist equipment, such as a walker, to help them to get from A to B.

Do I need to sign a contract or agree to an hourly minimum for my loved one to be applicable for your home care in Jacksonville?

No, you don't. Home care in Jacksonville should be available for anyone that requires it, and we strongly believe that care providers that use contracts or hourly minimums are more concerned about profits than the well-being of seniors in the local community.
It doesn't matter if your loved one needs an hours' care once a month, we will be there as long as they need us.

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

We certainly do. Dementia is affecting more and more residents here in Jacksonville, so we developed a specialized team to help seniors and families living with the disease.
They've all been trained in how to respond to typical behaviors caused by the condition to help reduce the stress of your loved one. Not only that, they'll be able to provide you with advice on routines and activities to take part in that will help your loved one to continue to lead a happy life.
Our aim is to become the number one provider of in-home care in Jacksonville and the whole of the United States for those that suffer from dementia by 2020.

If I choose your in-home care in Jacksonville, what type of services can my loved one expect on a day-to-day basis?

Every day, our team of reliable caregivers provides a range of services to seniors in home care in Jacksonville. Some examples include:

  • Cleaning
  • Washroom assistance
  • Washing and bathing assistance
  • Laundry
  • Ironing
  • Transport
  • Help with dressing
  • Medication reminders
  • Help with mobility
  • Much, much more

Do you provide respite senior care in Jacksonville?

If you provide full-time care for your loved one, taking time off can be tricky. With our respite care service, however, you can take as much time off as you want without having to worry about your loved one.
Our caregivers provide the best in-home care in Jacksonville and will be more than happy to look after your loved one while you're away.
