We have strong relationships with area hospitals, social workers, senior communities and senior resources across the front range. We're here to serve your needs, and we can help.

Yes. Any member of staff involved in providing elderly care in Memphis on behalf of Always Best Care is fully insured and bonded. We take these precautions to protect seniors against any damage or theft in their own home.
At the same time, we also provide all of our staff with Worker's Compensation. This ensures that if they do hurt themselves while working, they will be able to claim for compensation. Thankfully, it also ensures that a senior isn't liable, so they'll never have to pick up the bill.
Our vetting involves a three-step process:
Interviews: each applicant that is invited to an interview has to answer several questions regarding their past workplace responsibilities and where they see themselves in the future. Our interviewees will be looking out for how a candidate copes under pressure and how good they are at communicating in a calm manner.
Checks: we run criminal record checks on every applicant that makes it through to the interview stage to ensure that you can feel safe leaving your loved one in their care. On top of this, we also carry out random drug tests and speak directly to an applicant's references.
Training: If a candidate has lied about any past workplace responsibilities, it will quickly become apparent during our one-week training course. At this point, we still have the option of turning down an application if we feel that the applicant lacks the required integrity to carry out senior care in Memphis on behalf of Always Best Care.
We operate for 24 hours a day, so your loved one really can receive home care in Memphis when they need it most.
If you need any help planning out your loved one's care, speak to a member of our scheduling team today.
Yes. We want your loved one to feel safe and respected at all times while they receive senior care in Memphis with Always Best Care. One of the only ways we can help those feelings to develop is by allowing time for a senior's relationship with their caregiver to grow.
Only on occasions when their caregiver is ill or on vacation will they have a different person responsible for their care.
If your loved one requires assistance on many different occasions over the course of 24 hours, at least one other caregiver will be involved in their care on a daily basis. We often find that seniors enjoy the companionship of more than one caregiver and it helps to ensure that our staff have the appropriate rest in between their shifts.
We'll match your loved one to one of our special caregivers based on three factors:
Physical needs: some seniors that require elderly care in Memphis need help with more physical tasks, such as getting out of bed or up off their seat. If this is the case, some caregivers may be better suited than others.
Location: we always try to match your loved one to a caregiver that lives close by as it makes things a lot easier for all parties concerned.
Personality: to help their relationship to get off on the right foot, we try to match seniors to their caregivers based on their likes and dislikes. We find that by having things in common, they're much more likely to settle into their care routine quickly.
Any new members of staff that we take on at Always Best Care have to take part in a week's worth of training to ensure that their level of care is up to the high standard we expect.
During the week, they'll brush up on their ability to spot visible symptoms of illness, work on improving their communication skills, and learn how to carry out a thorough risk assessment of a senior's home.
We also ensure that all of our staff take part in regular 'refresher' training during their time with the company. This involves learning about any new technology or equipment in the industry and practicing new caregiving techniques.
We take all of these steps to make sure our home care in Memphis is the best that the state of Tennessee has to offer.
There are a whole variety of things to take into account when choosing a care provider, but one that we don't think should ever be overlooked is trust.
You have to be able to trust the person that will be responsible for looking after your loved one when you're not around.
Many independent providers aren't insured or bonded when they provide home care in Memphis and very few also have Worker's Compensation. All of Always Best Care's staff are also vetted, trained, and monitored so you know that you're loved one is receiving service you can trust.
With Always Best Care, your loved one could be receiving elderly care in Memphis within 168 hours from your first call to the company.
In that time, we can assess your loved one's home for potential hazards, choose a caregiver with similar likes and dislikes, and schedule your loved one's care for the month ahead.
That's entirely up to you. With our flexible services, you can pick and choose our in-home care in Memphis as and when you need it.
When we take over the mantle, you can feel confident that we will take good care of your loved one, and we promise to always keep you up to date with their condition or behavior via email, phone, or text.
There's a lot of contrasting information available online about senior care in Memphis, which can make your final decision about which provider to go with much more difficult than it really should be.
To help give you some clarity, we offer a no obligation, free consultation service for any families interested in finding out about what we can offer. We'll run you through every aspect of our care and our transparent price plans, so you can make an informed decision as to whether we'd be the right choice for your loved one.
All of our staff are trained in the ability to spot signs of illness, both physically and mentally, as well as the ability to report on potential hazards around a senior's home and how it could be made safer. Some examples include:
No. Our elderly care in Memphis is designed to be open to everyone that needs it, so we don't ask anyone to sign up to any long term contracts or require a minimum number of hours of care to be booked per month.
Simply request Always Best Care's services as and when you need it, whether that be for one hour a month or for 40 hours a week, our standards of care and reliability will always be the same.
Yes. Living with dementia can be difficult for a senior, but with our specialized dementia home care in Memphis, they should still be able to lead an independent lifestyle.
We train each of our team members to know how to respond to certain behavioral characteristics linked to the condition so that they can reassure and calm any senior living with the condition quickly.
Our caregivers perform a range of services for seniors all over Shelby County on a daily basis. To give you some idea as to how our senior care in Memphis could help your loved one, we've created a list of seven everyday duties, below:
Yes. Respite care is a service we provide for families that need to take a break from their caregiving duties for a short period of time.

Our family is in its 7th month of using ABC to provide in-home care to help my father (who has severe physical limitations) care for my mother as her Alzheimer's continues to progress. The personnel are extremely efficient and warmly friendly, and that's a rare combination from our other experiences in elder care. They are knowledgeable and accommodating because customer service is so important to them. When our first caregiver couldn't continue with us due to personal reasons, ABC worked closely with us to find another caregiver whose personality was open and infectious and engaging to both parents. While all the caregivers we've met have been skilled and professional, finding that emotional connection can be tricky. ABC insured that the caregiver ultimately assigned to us treats us like family, and we feel the same way about her. The administration has been diplomatic and professional and gracious at all times, and our family has certainly tested those qualities as,at times, they've had to deal with three different adults with three different opinions about decisions or actions. They have been respectful and worked with all of us to reach a mutually agreeable solution. On every level, ABC interaction with us has been positive and encouraging. Their presence in our lives and home has made such a positive difference in difficult circumstances, We've never had any regrets or second thoughts about choosing ABC. I would, without hesitation, recommend this agency and these people with the highest possible praise to anyone looking for help for an elder relative.
