An in-home care provider that is insured protects you and your loved one against theft. This is a very important question to ask any outside contractor or in-home care provider before they are hired. For your added peace of mind, Always Best Care provides our employees with Worker's Compensation as well. That means if they suffer from an accident while working in your loved one's home, you're protected against any claims or damages. While these protections benefit you and your loved one, they also directly benefit our staff, meaning we are able to attract some of the finest caregivers that provide elderly care in Basking Ridge to Always Best Care.
We try to make your life as easy as possible, so our caregivers are typically available 24-hours a day and 365 days of the year. We understand that each senior in-home care agency in Basking Ridge has different requirements, yet with Always Best Care, it doesn't matter whether your loved one needs help getting dressed first thing in the morning or whether they need someone to tuck them at night, our caregivers are available to help them around the clock.
To be able to provide the finest senior care in Basking Ridge, we think it's vital that a caregiver and our seniors have an opportunity to build a strong relationship with each other. Trust is such an important aspect of caregiving that without it, all parties may suffer. However, our caregivers are allowed requested vacations each year and there may be times when they become ill. If they do take a break or are suffering from a bug, a substitute caregiver will become responsible for your loved one's care. In these situations, we try to inform the substitute caregiver on all of your loved one's likes and dislikes, so disruptions are kept to a bare minimum. If your loved one requires care during the morning, afternoon, and evening, an additional caregiver will be scheduled as part of your loved one's daily care routine. We do this to ensure that every member of staff has enough time to recharge their batteries between working hours.
Before our caregivers are allowed to begin working for Always Best Case, they must go through introductory training. Our caregivers are trained according to the state of NJ specifications as well as received further specialized training. This is just to ensure that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect from our caregivers. During this training, they will brush up on their symptom spotting, safety awareness, and communication skills, so that your loved one is assured of the highest level of home care in Basking Ridge from day one. Every year, our staff also has to undergo further training to make sure that they are up-to-date with the latest caregiving techniques and technology.
Thanks to our resources and expertise, we are able to offer a very timely turnaround service from the first moment you get in contact with us. We'll arrange your loved one's care plan, nutritional diet, schedule, and match them to the most appropriate caregiver. This quick turnaround time is just one of the numerous reasons why we're renowned for offering the most flexible home care in Basking Ridge.
If you're looking for advice on the best elderly care in Basking Ridge, you'll undoubtedly start your search online. Sometimes, however, it's best to talk to an actual person to get the answers to the questions you're looking for, which is why we offer a consultation service to any family considering choosing Always Best Care for their loved one. We'll run you through everything you need to know, from the level of detail we put into our care plans to our transparent pricing plans, so that you can make an informed decision on your loved one's future.
One of the most important aspects of home care in Basking Ridge should be safety. Our staff is trained to be able to assess a senior's home so that they can spot any potential hazards that could lead to an accident. We will carry out a safety assessment on your loved one's property before we begin our caregiving service. The assessment will advise on the small ways in which we can make your loved one's home safer, such as by introducing grab rails in hallways and showers. During your time with Always Best Care, your loved one's caregiver will continually monitor your loved one's mobility and will advise on any specific equipment or technology that they feel would make their life easier.
We certainly do. Dementia can have a devastating effect on the lives of our clients and their families. For our in-home care clients in Basking Ridge, we've introduced a specifically trained group of caregivers to keep any disruptions to a minimum. They're trained on how to respond to certain behavioral aspects of this condition in an attempt to give the person with dementia the highest level of comfort possible. What's more, they'll also provide support to the families as we know how upsetting it can be to see your loved one acting out of character.
Our team of caregivers can provide a number of different services to help make the life of your loved one a little easier. This includes but is not limited to:
If you're still not convinced that Always Best Care can provide the senior care in Basking Ridge that your loved one needs, get in touch with us today to find out about some of the other services our team of incredibly talented caregivers can provide.
Yes. Respite care is a service we offer to families that are responsible for the care of their loved ones. There may be an occasion, for example, where you can't provide the necessary in-home care for your loved one for a short period of time because of other responsibilities. In these circumstances, one of our fully vetted and trained caregivers can step into the void to make sure that your loved one is well looked after. It doesn't matter if you've got a long vacation planned or if you just have some small workplace duties to attend to, our expertise and resources can arrange a suitable replacement for their care in just a few days. It's just one of the reasons why we're the right choice for home care in Basking Ridge.

I would like to recommend the services of Always Best Care from personal experience through the tremendous care that our Father received during the last few months of his life. Greg and his team understood my Father’s needs at a time when the caregivers we employed before Always Best Care were struggling to meet our expectations. Greg and my family had numerous conversations and follow up concerning schedules, specific caregiver personalities comparable with our Father, assistance during rehabilitation, and homebound assistance with our families primary caregiver. We were grateful for the patience the caregivers showed for our Father. Greg’s ability to connect with our father was extraordinary. Frequent visits and personal ”check ins” to his home made our care for him that much easier in what can be an overwhelming experience. Frequent long distance conversations kept me in touch with his care, progress of his health, and his personal needs. Greg is a unique businessman in that his connection with his clients is personal. Greg shared with us the progress of a close personal relative that was going through the same medical challenges as our Father. This foresite gave us a perspective into our eventual preparations and transitional stages that helped us cope a bit better till the end of Dad's life. Greg’s upbeat personality was encouraging to my Father. He had many conversations about Baseball….my Dad’s favorite pastime. Greg and his team attended our Dad’s funeral which we thought was a kind gesture to our family. There were challenges along the way since this was a unique situation for all of us. Greg’s team as well as his wife were very involved from the beginning. I hope this gives sheds some light on the culture of this small business.

Always Best Care took away most of the stress I was having with the care of my 98 year old mother. They got to know my mother. This meant that they just didn't send someone to watch her, but someone who would understand her likes and dislikes. At 98 she is very set in her ways but they did a great job finding someone who took the time to understand her quirks, but also keep me informed of any changes. I can't thank Greg and Robin enough for being so understanding and for the care they have given to my mother. I highly recommend Always Best Care if you need any assistants in the care of someone you love.

My mother has been a client since Feb 2017. Mother's aide, Alexandra, has become mom's friend, not just her daytime caregiver. Greg and Robin have gone way beyond expectations of their service to assure that mom gets to her appointments on time and that Alexandra has enough instructional support to be able to do her job w/my mother. Knowing that mom is safely cared for during the day while we, her children are at work, has eased our family's worries greatly.
