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 Princeton Junction 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 Princeton Junction 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 Princeton Junction, 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 Princeton Junction 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 Princeton Junction.
If you're looking for advice on the best elderly care in Princeton Junction, 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 Princeton Junction 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 Princeton Junction, 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 Princeton Junction 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 Princeton Junction.

ALWAYS BEST CARE, Princeton Junction is the place to call if you need help in caring for a loved one. We have a brother and his significant other who were living independently and when visiting them realized they had not been eating or keeping their home clean. Since we knew of Always Best Care and heard of their excellent reputation we contacted them. They immediately stepped in and assisted us in knowing what steps we needed to take. After taking both our brother and his significant other to the doctors and learning that they had the beginnings of Alzheimer’s disease, we met with Carmen who helped us set up a plan. She suggested that we start with a few days a week of in home care so that we would know that they were eating. She provided us with excellent aids that not only helped prepare meals, but also interacted with our family members to encourage socialization. These few days increased to five days a week which left us with Saturday and Sunday to monitor their eating. While this was taking place, Carmen helped us find an Assisted Living Community where they could move. We visited several in the area and decided on one after consulting with Carmen. She and Gimbert were always available to take our calls if we had any questions. They helped us with finding someone to clean out the house and assisted us in relocating our bother and his significant other to their new home. We have recommended Always Best Care to several of our neighbors who have needed assistance with caring for loved ones. Carmen is on top of any situation that needs attention. Whether a person needs an aid for a week, a month or indefinitely she arranges the right person for the client’s needs. Always Best Care, Carmen and Gimbert, cared for our family members as if they were their own family. We would not have been able to care for our family members as well as the aids from Always Best Care.Hopefully we will not need the services of Always Best Care again, but if we do we know that they will be there to help us.
