Meet the Team

John, Wendy, & Danielle


John, Wendy, and Danielle started this business as a result of their experience as a family with Home Care. As a family, we saw a real need to provide a trustworthy resource in the senior community. John ran and owned Service Oil Company for over 30 years, Wendy has been a caregiver her entire life, and Danielle has worked in the Adult and Children’s protective service field for 8 years. This is a journey we wanted to take as a family, so we could offer families support, resources, and the compassionate care in their time of need. We are blessed to be in the senior community and to work alongside all of the great community senior resources.

Client Service Coordinator

My name is Stephanie Stevens, and I am a Client Service Coordinator at Always Best Care-Michiana. I have been in the Healthcare Field for several years now, both in a facility and HomeCare setting. It has been my pleasure to get to know and care for all my clients over the years. There is so much to be gained in caring for seniors, and there is no better feeling at the end of the day than knowing you helped people, and honestly made an impact on their life. I truly empathize and sympathize with clients that have lost their abilities to do things on their own they way they used to. It is that sympathy and that empathy that drives me to want to go above and beyond for my clients, and ensure them the best care possible: and I pride myself in doing so. Additionally, I am a mother of two very handsome men, a mother-in-law to my favorite daughter-in-law, and a “MiMi” to my precious granddaughter, Brayleigh. I also enjoy spending time with my miniature Schnauzer, PeeWee.

I started as a caregiver to a private client, then joined an agency and became a Clients Care Coordinator within a year. I pride myself on being a positive voice and strong advocate for our clients and my co-workers.
