For over 20 years, Always Best Care has been a trusted name in senior care, helping thousands of elder clients with in-home care and assisted living referral solutions. We ensure that all our clients receive exceptional care in a comfortable environment from trained, caring professionals. A national family of home-care agencies, each Always Best Care office is independently owned and operated. This Always Best Care team was assembled by Sanjay Das, who originally grew up in India but has made the United States his home for over 23 years. With his decade-long experience as a family caregiver, he started the agency as a tribute to his grandmother, who raised him since the day he was born. Both mentor and matriarch, she transformed the lives of countless women and children through a women's co-operative she started during the 1940s, a time when women's lib was unheard of. In his grandmother's honor, Sanjay proudly carries on her legacy of compassion and dedication to making a difference in the lives of others. This enduring principle is reflected in our team's mission: create certainty and hope for our seniors by helping them stay active, healthy and in touch with their loved ones.

Are your caregivers insured and bonded?

Yes. When it comes to choosing home care in the Raleigh area, it's critical that you find a caregiver you can trust completely with your loved one. Providing the best care possible means making sure our senior caregivers are bonded, insured and covered by Worker's Compensation. Every senior care provider on our team is an integral employee of Always Best Care, which means that you can always trust them to do what's right and in the best interest of your loved one.

How are Always Best Care's caregivers vetted?

We strive to provide the best home care in Raleigh and throughout Wake and Johnston County communities like Clayton, Garner, Apex, Cary, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs and Morrisville. That's why we work so hard to ensure that every caregiver on our team is not only a trained professional, but has the integrity and character necessary to represent our high standards when they care for your loved one. Every senior caregiver must go through a rigorous and thorough vetting process before hiring. This entails a criminal background check, drug screening and a comprehensive evaluation of references and past work history.

What hours are caregivers available?

Seniors who require in home care in the Raleigh area need to know that help is available at all times throughout the day. Every senior has unique needs, the care for which should not be constrained to limited hours. Always Best Care's caregivers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and our scheduling experts work directly with families to ensure that seniors never need to worry about receiving care when they need it.

Will my loved one have the same caregiver every visit?

Yes, in many circumstances. However, illness, scheduled time off and other factors may necessitate temporary substitution. Additionally, if your loved one requires care at different times of day or for many hours at a time, it will be necessary to schedule multiple caregivers.
One of the most crucial aspects to providing quality senior care in Raleigh and elsewhere in East & South Wake and Johnston Counties is consistency. Seniors become accustomed to trusted, loving family members who provide compassionate care, and they learn to count on having things done a certain way. We strive to ensure that our caregivers earn that level of trust. This is done through a comprehensive matching process, which allows caregivers to build strong relationships with the seniors to whom they provide care.

How will my loved one be matched with a caregiver?

The proper fit is a significant aspect of the in home caregiving process, which is why we work hard to make ideal matches between seniors and their caregivers. At Always Best Care of Raleigh, we know our diverse team of caregivers well, and understand what makes them unique as individuals. This allows us to take into account your senior loved one's preferences, likes and dislikes in a way that matches them perfectly with the right provider. And if we don't get it exactly right the first time, we'll reevaluate to ensure that your special senior receives the proper care from the perfect individual.

How are caregivers trained?

Every senior caregiver on our team receives extensive training upon hiring in addition to ongoing training to ensure that they are kept up to date with the latest standards and techniques in our industry. Our in home caregivers are trained on communication, activities planning, recognizing symptoms of illnesses, safety and a number of other issues that are pertinent to providing the finest senior care in the Raleigh area.

Why should I use an Always Best Care caregiver instead of an independent provider?

Home care providers can be found in a number of places, with many offering services and prices that seem too good to be true (and probably are too good to be true).
Sure, you can find independent caregivers that would seem to save you time and money by cutting out the "middle man," but you can never be sure that they can be trusted with your loved one - they simply can't be held to the high standards of excellence that are required of the caregivers on the Always Best Care team. Our compassionate senior caregivers are fully vetted, insured, bonded and kept up to date with the latest training, so you know you can trust them to provide the finest senior care in Wake and Johnston Counties.

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

If you are concerned about the time it takes to get the ball rolling on receiving senior care for your loved one, you may be surprised by how quickly Always Best Care can match you with a compassionate caregiver. The process of matching a caregiver with your senior loved one is a thorough and comprehensive one, but thanks to our experience, expertise and ability to attract the best caregivers in the Raleigh area, your loved one can expect to receive home care services within a week of making your first call to us.

What role do family members play once a caregiver has been hired?

One of the more challenging aspects of hiring an in home senior care provider is the shifting role of family. However, you can rest assured knowing that part of our process is making sure that family members always feel like they are crucial members of the caregiving team. Our goal at Always Best Care is to provide home care in a harmonious, integrative and inclusive fashion.

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

When selecting the right in home care provider in Raleigh, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices that are available for your loved one. We can't speak to the effectiveness, safety and reliability of other senior care providers in Wake and Johnston Counties, but we proudly stand behind our record of offering compassionate care that seniors in our area - and their family members - can count on. If you're skeptical about the tremendous quality of service we offer, we urge you to schedule a free consultation with us.

What steps are taken to ensure the safety of my senior loved one?

Safety is an essential cornerstone of providing the best in home senior care in Wake and Johnston Counties. Our caregivers are trained on the most up-to-date safety procedures, and they receive ongoing instruction to ensure that they always know how to keep your loved one as safe as possible in the home, while running errands or performing household chores. They can also take steps to make sure that your loved one's home is free from the hazards that can lead to falls, accidents and other mishaps.

Do I need to sign a contract or agree to an hourly minimum?

To ensure the absolute best care, we require a three-hour minimum, but you will never have to sign a contract. We mold our services to the needs of your loved one. Nothing more; nothing less.

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

What is respite care?

If you are a family member providing home care to a senior loved one on a consistent basis, you may be wondering what you can do during those periods of time when you are unable to be present. For example, if you are ill, on vacation or otherwise unable to provide in home care, you may feel like you have no one to turn to. Respite care allows you to hire one of our well-trained and highly experienced caregivers temporarily so you can step away from your loved one for short-term intervals. If you've ever wondered how you can maintain consistent care of your loved one while you are unable to do so yourself, respite care service from Always Best Care is the answer!
