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 Austin 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 Austin 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 in at night, our caregivers are available to help them around the clock.
To be able to provide the finest senior care in Austin, 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 Care, they must go through introductory training. Our caregivers are trained according to the state of Austin specifications as well as receiving further specialized training. This is 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 Austin 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 one of the numerous reasons why we're renowned for offering the most flexible home care in Austin.
If you're looking for advice on the best elderly care in Austin, 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 Austin 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 Austin, 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 Austin 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's one of the reasons why we're the right choice for home care in Austin.

I had the pleasure of working with Lori Schrayer in a professional setting where she was in a leadership role. I worked with her and her team on multiple projects as a liaison to the County Manager or head of the municipal organization. Lori is consistent in her treatment of peers, communication style, and commitment to her staff. I would be fortunate to work with Lori in the future and would provide her business if given the opportunity as I know they’d be in great hands.
