Are your staff that deliver elderly care in Dallas insured and bonded?
They are. We know how important it is that you can feel like you can trust us, so all of our staff that provide home care in Dallas are bonded, insured, and covered by Worker's Compensation.
We find that not only does this provide you with the assurance that your loved one will never be liable for any losses, injury, or damages but also at the same time helps to attract the best caregivers to come and work for Always Best Care.
How are your staff that provide elderly care in Dallas vetted?
Our vetting process is incredibly meticulous due to the level of trust that has to be put into a caregiver's hands. If an applicant manages to make it past our two-round interview process, they will then be subject to drug testing and criminal background checks. If that wasn't enough, our recruitment team also get in direct contact with references and double check an applicant's work history. While this all might sound a little over the top, we only ever employ people that we feel can provide the highest standards of elderly care in Dallas to seniors.
What hours do your staff provide senior care in Dallas?
We want families that live in and around Dallas to know that they can count on Always Best Care whenever they need them, so our caregivers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We understand that each senior is different and each family worries about different things, so having a fully flexible approach means we can help to accommodate every senior that requires home care in Dallas.
Will my loved one have the same caregiver to provide them senior care in Dallas on every visit?
Yes. We will match your loved one to the most suitable caregiver available, who will then become responsible for their senior care in Dallasfor the foreseeable future. For your loved one to truly become comfortable with their caregiving arrangement, they need to build up a level of trust with the person responsible for their care, so we will only change this arrangement upon your request.
Of course, it's important to remember that a caregiver is permitted to take up to four weeks annual leave per year, so there may be occasions where a substitute caregiver will take over the mantle. When this does happen, the substitute caregiver is made fully aware of any preferences that your loved one may have, so you don't have to worry about any disruption to their usual care.
Finally, if your loved one requires care at different points throughout the day and night, we may have to introduce more than one carer into their daily schedule.
How will my loved one be matched with their caregiver that's responsible for providing their elderly care in Dallas?
Our process is fairly straightforward - you answer some simple survey questions on behalf of your loved one and we'll match them up to the answers our caregivers provided on the same test. By matching their hobbies and interests, we find that the two often have something to bond over from the get go.
There are also other considerations to take into factor, such as the level of physical care needed, that play a part in who we choose to provide home care in Dallas for your loved one.
How are your caregivers trained to provide senior care in Dallas?
Once a new member of staff has accepted a job offer from Always Best Care in Dallas, they will be required to undergo a week's worth of training to prepare them for their new role. Topics that are gone over include work on their communication skills and ability to spot symptoms of illness.
Even once they're in their role supplying senior care in Dallas, they will undergo an annual refresher course to keep them up to date with the latest caring techniques and equipment.
Why should I choose your elderly care in Dallas instead of an independent provider?
As shoppers, we always hunt for the best bargain, but when that bargain involves the questionable quality of home care in Dallas that your loved one could receive, you have to wonder whether it's the correct approach for finding an in-home care provider.
Instead, we tell potential clients to look at the facts. All of our caregivers have been vetted, bonded, insured, and trained to provide a service that you can always trust. If an independent provider isn't offering these things as standard, then the alarm bells should already be ringing.
How quickly can my loved one expect to begin receiving senior care in Dallas?
Thanks to our experience and resources, we're able to have a care plan and caregiver in place within seven days of your first contact with us.
This includes carrying out a risk assessment on your home, creating a nutritional meal plan, matching your loved one to the perfect caregiver, and scheduling their timetable of seniorcare in Dallas for the month ahead.
What role do family members play in their loved one's elderly care in Dallas once a caregiver has been hired?
Families hire elderly care in Dallas for a variety of different reasons. Some like to take a step back from their caring duties to regain a better work/life balance, while others choose in-home care as the result of their loved one suffering from some form of accident or illness.
Whatever the case may be, we want you to play as large a role as possible in your loved one's life. That can be in a caring capacity or as a friend, it doesn't matter, as long as your loved one gets to see you on a regular basis.
For our part, we'll always include you in any communication and keep you abreast of any changes in your loved one's behavior. Remember, we're a team, and together, we'll give your loved one the best quality of life possible.
How do I know if Always Best Care is the right choice for in-home care in Dallas?
Come in and see us! Yes, you could read our countless good reviews online, but we always think it's better to meet the people behind the business so that you can get a full opinion as to whether we'd be the right fit for you. Our consultation is completely free and we're more than happy to run through every aspect of our in-home care in Dallas in detail so that you can feel confident moving forward.
What steps are taken to ensure that my loved one's in-home care in Dallas is safe?
The cornerstone of our business is based around making sure that seniors in home care in Dallas are safe. To ensure this, all of our caregivers are provided with the most up-to-date safety procedures and are required to carry out regular risk assessments of a senior's home.
If they spot any potential hazards, such as a rug, or think of any way to improve a home's safety, such as the installation of rails in a hallway, they will suggest this to you in a written report.
Outside of the home, they'll also suggest any items that they think could make your loved one's mobility safer, such as walking frames, canes, wheelchairs, and mobility scooters.
Do I need to sign a contract or agree to an hourly minimum for my loved one to be applicable for your home care in Dallas?
No. We want to be able to help as many seniors that require home care in Dallas as possible, and we believe the introduction of a minimum tier service or contracts could harm our chances of doing just that. So, even if you just require a caregiver to help get your loved one washed and dressed on a Monday morning, we'd love to help.
Do you provide in-home care in Dallas for individuals suffering from Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia?
Yes. Dementia affects thousands of seniors and their families right here in Dallas alone, so we have an especially devised team of caregivers in place that has been trained on how to cope with certain behavioral aspects of the condition.
Along with providing comfort for those living with dementia, our caregivers will also be responsible for ensuring that you have the necessary emotional support throughout your time with us.
Those that live with dementia often react poorly to any changes to their usual routine, so choosing elderly care in Dallas instead of a nursing or residential home could be the best option for your loved one.
If I choose your in-home care in Dallas, what type of services can my loved one expect on a day-to-day basis?
No two senior's needs are ever the same, so our team of compassionate caregivers are responsible for providing a variety of services during their senior care in Dallas. To give you some indication as to the type of assistance they could provide your loved one with, we've come up with a short list, below:
- Washing up
- Emptying the dishwasher
- Cleaning (vacuuming, dusting, etc.)
- Toilet assistance
- Watering plants/garden
- Mobility assistance
- Medication reminders
- And plenty of others...
Do you provide respite in-home care in Dallas?

In these circumstances, Always Best Care can provide a respite in-home care service in Dallas, where one or more of our fully qualified caregivers will look after your loved one during your time away.
