They say that your golden years are the best years of your life. For most older Americans, that's how it should be - a time to relax, reflect, and live life in a familiar place. After all, senior citizens in the U.S. have worked tirelessly to build a better economy, serve their communities, and raise families.
However, as seniors grow older, sometimes they cannot live independently without someone by their side to provide care. Unfortunately, some older Americans aren't able to rely on their adult children for help. The reality in today's world is that family members do not have the skills or time to dedicate to caring for their parents. That's where Always Best Care Senior Services comes in.
Our in-home care services are for people who prefer to stay at home as they grow older but need ongoing care that family or friends cannot provide. More and more older adults prefer to live in the comforts or their home rather than in an assisted living community. Home care in Wincheste Hills, UT is a safe, effective way to give your loved ones the care they need when they need it the most.
Since 1996, Always Best Care has provided non-medical in-home care for seniors to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle as they age. We are proud to have helped tens of thousands of seniors to maintain a higher level of dignity and respect. We focus on providing seniors with the highest level of home care available so that they may live happily and independently.
Unlike some senior care companies, we genuinely want to be included in our clients' lives. We believe that personalized care is always the better option over a "one size fits all" approach. To make sure our senior clients receive the best care possible, we pair them with compassionate caregivers who understand their unique needs.
The Always Best Care difference lies in life's little moments - where compassionate care and trustworthy experience come together to help seniors live a fruitful, healthy life. Whether you are an aging adult that can't quite keep up with life's daily tasks or the child of a senior who needs regular in-home care services in Wincheste Hills, UT. Always Best Care is here to help.
Home is where the heart is. While that saying can sound a tad cliche, it's especially true for many seniors living in America. When given a choice, older adults most often prefer to grow older at home. An AARP study found that three out of four adults over the age of 50 want to stay in their homes and communities as they age. When you begin to think about why, it makes sense. Home offers a sense of security, comfort, and familiarity.
The truth is, as we age, we begin to rely on others for help. When a family is too busy or lives too far away to fulfill this role, in-home senior care is often the best solution. Home care services allow seniors to enjoy personal independence while also receiving trustworthy assistance from a trained caregiver.
At Always Best Care, we offer a comprehensive range of home care services to help seniors stay healthy while they get the help they need to remain independent. As your senior loved one ages, giving them the gift of senior care is one of the best ways to show your love, even if you live far away.
To give our senior clients the best care possible, we offer a full spectrum of in-home care services:
If your senior loved one has specific care needs, our personal care services are a great choice to consider. Personal care includes the standard caregiving duties associated with companion care and includes help with tasks such as dressing and grooming. Personal care can also help individuals with chronic conditions like diabetes or Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.
Sometimes, seniors need helpful reminders to maintain a high quality of life at home. If you or your senior has trouble with everyday tasks like cooking, our home helper services will be very beneficial.
Using this kind of care is a fantastic way to make life easier for you or your senior loved one. At Always Best Care, our talented caregivers often fill the role of a companion for seniors. That way, older adults can enjoy their favorite activities and hobbies while also receiving the care they need daily or weekly.
According to AARP, more than 53 million adults living in the U.S. provide care to someone over 50 years old. Unfortunately, these caregivers experience stress, exhaustion, and even depression. Our respite care services help family caregivers address urgent obligations, spend time with their children, and enjoy other activities. Perhaps more importantly, respite care gives family members time to recharge and regroup. Taking personal time to de-stress helps reduce the risks of caregiver burnout.
When it comes to non-medical home care, our goal is to become a valuable part of your senior's daily routine. That way, we may help give them the highest quality of life possible. We know that staying at home is important for your loved one, and we are here to help make sure that is possible. If you have been on the fence about non-medical home care, there has never been a better time than now to give your senior the care, assistance, and companionship they deserve.
Always Best Care in-home services are for older adults who prefer to stay at home but need ongoing care that friends and family cannot provide. In-home care is a safe, effective way for seniors to age gracefully in a familiar place and live independent, non-institutionalized lives. The benefits of non-medical home care are numerous. Here are just a few reasons to consider senior care services from Always Best Care:
While it's true that some seniors have complicated medical needs that prevent them from staying at home, aging in place is often the best arrangement for seniors and their families. With a trusted caregiver, seniors have the opportunity to live with a sense of dignity and do so as they see fit.
In-home care makes it possible for millions of seniors to age in place every year. Rather than moving to a unfamiliar assisted living community, seniors have the chance to stay at home where they feel the happiest and most comfortable.
How much does a senior's home truly mean to them?
A study published by the American Society on Aging found that more than half of seniors say their home's emotional value means more than how much their home is worth in monetary value. It stands to reason, that a senior's home is where they want to grow old. With the help of elderly care in Wincheste Hills, UT, seniors don't have to age in a sterilized care facility. Instead, they can age gracefully in the place they want to be most: their home. In contrast, seniors who move to a long-term care facility must adapt to new environments, new people, and new systems that the facility implements. At this stage in life, this kind of drastic change can be more harmful than helpful.
Institutional care facilities like nursing homes often put large groups of people together to live in one location. On any given day, dozens of staff members and caregivers run in and out of these facilities. Being around so many new people in a relatively small living environment can be dangerous for a seniors' health and wellbeing. When you consider that thousands of seniors passed away in nursing homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, opting for in-home care is often a safer, healthier choice for seniors. Aging in place has been shown to improve seniors' quality of life, which helps boost physical health and also helps insulate them from viral and bacterial risks found in elderly living facilities.
For many seniors, the ability to live independently with assistance from a caregiver is a priceless option. With in-home care, seniors experience a higher level of independence and freedom - much more so than in other settings like an assisted living community. When a senior has the chance to age in place, they get to live life on their own terms, inside the house that they helped make into a home. More independence means more control over their personal lives, too, which leads to increased levels of fulfillment, happiness, and personal gratification. Over time, these positive feelings can manifest into a healthier, longer life.
More independence, a healthier life, and increased comfort are only a few benefits of aging in place. You have to take into consideration the role of cost and convenience. Simply put, it's usually easier to help seniors age in place than it is to move them into an institutional care facility. In-home care services from Always Best Care, for instance, can be less expensive than long-term solutions, which can cost upwards of six figures per year. To make matters worse, many residential care facilities are reluctant to accept long-term care insurance and other types of payment assistance.
With Always Best Care's home care services, seniors and their families have a greater level of control over their care plans. In-home care in Wincheste Hills, UT gives seniors the chance to form a bond with a trusted caregiver and also receive unmatched care that is catered to their needs. In long-term care facilities, seniors and their loved ones have much less control over their care plan and have less of a say in who provides their care.
In-home care is a valuable resource that empowers seniors to age in place on their own terms. However, a big concern for many families and their loved ones is how much in-home care costs. If you're worried that in-home care is too expensive, you may be pleasantly surprised to learn that it is one of the most affordable senior care arrangements available.
Typically, hiring an Always Best Care in-home caregiver for a few hours a week is more affordable than sending your loved one to a long-term care facility. This is true even for seniors with more complex care needs.
At Always Best Care, we will work closely with you and your family to develop a Care Plan that not only meets your care needs, but your budget requirements, too. Once we discover the level of care that you or your senior need, we develop an in-home care plan that you can afford.
When you or your senior loved one needs assistance managing daily tasks at home, finding a qualified caregiver can be challenging. It takes a special kind of person to provide reliable care for your senior loved one. However, a caregiver's role involves more than meal preparation and medication reminders. Many seniors rely on their caregivers for companionship, too.
Our companion care services give seniors the chance to socialize in a safe environment and engage in activities at home. These important efforts boost morale and provide much-needed relief from repetitive daily routines. A one-on-one, engaging conversation can sharpen seniors' minds and give them something in which to be excited.
At Always Best Care, we only hire care providers that we would trust to care for our own loved ones. Our senior caregivers in Wincheste Hills,UT understand how important it is to listen and communicate with their seniors. A seemingly small interaction, like a short hug goodbye, can make a major difference in a senior's day. Instead of battling against feelings of isolation, seniors begin to look forward to seeing their caregiver each week.
Understanding the nuances of senior care is just one of the reasons why our care providers are so great at their job.
Unlike some senior care companies, our caregivers must undergo extensive training before they work for Always Best Care. In addition, our caregivers receive ongoing training throughout the year. This training ensures that their standard of care matches up to the high standards we've come to expect. During this training, they will brush up on their communication skills, safety awareness, and symptom spotting. That way, your loved one receives the highest level of non-medical home care from day one.
The first step in getting quality in-home care starts with a personal consultation with an experienced Care Coordinator. This initial consultation is crucial for our team to learn more about you or your elderly loved one to discover the level of care required. Topics of this consultation typically include:
An assessment of your senior loved one
An in-depth discussion of the needs of your senior loved one to remain in their own home
Reviewing a detailed Care Plan that will meet your senior loved one's needs

Winchester is the fastest growing city in Virginia, according to a new report from the website 24/7 Wall St..
The site compared data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Labor Bureau, focusing on rates of unemployment, job growth, population growth and the median household income.
Winchester stacked up better than most cities, with an 8.6 percent population increase between 2010 and 2018, versus Virginia’s 6.2 percent; an unemployment rate of 2.8 percent compared to the Commonwealth’s 2.9 percent, and a 14.9 percent job growth between 2010 and 2017. During that same period, Virginia’s job growth was 8.5 percent.
Residents said they are not suprised by the ranking.
“If you watch what’s happened in our community and this region of the state over the past couple of years, it makes absolute sense that we would be one of the fastest growing communities, not just in virginia but in the country,” Victoria Kidd, the co-owner and general manager of the Hideaway Cafe, said.
“You have Clarke County that wants to remain rural. You have Leesburg that has gotten extremely expensive to live in, so where are people going to go when they’re looking for a good place to raise families and buy their first homes, and a welcoming and open and beautiful community. We’ve made a beautiful community, so clearly we’re going to attract those people,” Kidd said.
For Justin Kerns, the executive director of tourism for both Winchester and Frederick County, that line is familiar.
“I moved here with my family,” Kerns said, who had previously lived in Los Angeles. “We decided to relocate here. We don’t have any family in the area. It was for career and family that we moved here.”
Kerns says the ranking is obviously celebrated by his team, but he understands why some residents are hesistant to embrace the change. T
he culture of Winchester and the small town feel is what attracted many people to move to the area, he said.
“We want to work very hard to protect that,” Kerns said, adding that the city hopes to ‘grow, but grow wisely.’
Still, many residents are supportive of the growth.
“I’ve seen it grow from the tiny podunk town it was to this mecca for really good food and really good beer,” said Winchester resident Nick Blackcloud. “It’s a small price with some of the traffic that we have.”
Another resident, Mary Howley, agreed, adding, “It’s better than Loudoun County.”
Traffic is one of the concerns residents voiced when it comes to the area’s growth. Housing costs, another. Others fear a change in the culture.
But city resident Bob Read, who moved to the city in 1974, says the change is positive.
“Everyone wants their place in the sun. They move out here,’oh isn’t this wonderful?’ Problem is, once I get here, ‘I don’t want anyone else in here! I want it like it used to be,'” said Read, mimicking residents who dislike the growth.
Still Read says the growth does change the flavor of the city and he knows some people worry about what that change brings.
Kerns too knows the small town charm is one of the things people love about Winchester. But he says city and county officials are committed to preserving the area’s slower pace and sense of community, and he believes newcomers to the region are as well.
“We see those people moving here as a way to get away from what’s there,” said Kerns, referring to D.C. and Northern Virginia. “Instead of trying to replicate what’s there and bring it here, they’re moving here because it’s not Northern Virginia.”

WINCHESTER HILLS – A proud community gathered on Saturday for the groundbreaking of the Winchester Hills Fire Department’s new station.
The ceremony started at 11 a.m. with about 65 residents in attendance. Those who were instrumental in bringing the project to fruition each delivered a brief address, followed by the fire crew striking shovels into the ground.
The department is currently using a portion of the Winchester Hills Water Company’s building as a station. Located just off state Route-18 at 5297 North Winchester Hills Drive, the new facility will be a 6,300-square foot upgrade that is expected to greatly improve response time.
The total cost of the station is approximately $610,000, and the project is being funded mainly by the Southwestern Special Service District with a loan from the State of Utah’s Community Impact Board. Construction is expected to finish by Aug. 30.
“This is a concept we’ve been working towards for years,” Southwestern SSD board member Cheryl Christensen said. “We’re finally to the point where we can realize our dream to better serve the area and the people who live here.”
The all-volunteer department consists of 12 firefighters led by Chief Don Christensen. With three engines equipped to combat structural and wildland fires, they serve approximately 500 residences and businesses covering 50 square miles in Winchester Hills and nearby areas. Operations are funded through a portion of the property taxes in Winchester Hills and Diamond Valley collected by the Southwestern SSD.
The department was established over 25 years ago with primitive equipment and scant support. Until 1998, firefighters were alerted to emergencies by an air raid siren atop the station, rather than dispatched.
To learn more, call 435-619-3406 or visit the Winchester Hills community website.

CANAL WINCHESTER, Ohio (WCMH) – Rayne McCann, 17, loves football. He loves it so much that nothing was going to stop him from playing or being part of a team.
What he didn’t know was that being part of Canal Winchester’s team would change his life.
“Being under the lights is the best feeling I’ve ever experienced in my life,” Rayne McCann said. “The best.”
Rayne McCann has a special appreciation for moments of normalcy. Having 25 surgeries due to arthrogryposis will do that.
“It’s like clubbed hands and feet, but it’s all of my joints, so all of my joints are contracted,” he said.
“We didn’t know before he was born, and so it was a surprise for everyone,” his mother, Leslie McCann, said.
It was the first of many surprises in Rayne’s life. After learning to walk at 8 years old, Rayne decided he would be a football player.
“It was definitely a change,” he said. “Like, I went from not really doing anything physical to playing football in a very short span. It was just like, ‘Oh, I want to do this,’ and I did it.”
“For him to be included in a program that is school-based, it’s not based on the disability,” Leslie McCann said. “It’s based on Rayne’s ability.”
While Rayne transitioned to athlete life, he was going through a personal transition as well.
“I never wore women’s clothes, ever,” Rayne McCann said. “I just never liked girly things.”
“I knew, I knew at a very young age that Rayne didn’t want to be a female,” Leslie McCann said. “I support his disability; there is no reason I wouldn’t support him being transgender.”
“That was probably an easier decision than to play football, to be honest with you,” Rayne McCann added.
Through his transition, football stayed Rayne’s constant, and instead of judgment and doubt, he found support and community on the field.
“And the fact that they accept that portion of Rayne’s life is heartwarming,” Leslie McCann said.
“It’s definitely something I didn’t expect to happen, but, at the same time, if it didn’t happen, I was not going to quit playing the sport that I love,” Rayne McCann said.
“They treat him as a teammate,” said Canal Winchester head football coach Jake Kuhner. “Football culture, they accept those people who are willing to put in the work and come on a daily basis and do the same thing that everybody else is doing. And that’s what I love about sports.”
Rayne admits his life’s journey so far hasn’t been all touchdowns and celebrations.
“People are always going to have something to say, whether it be about my disability or transgender,” Rayne McCann said.
But being part of those touchdowns and celebrations has shown him that acceptance can happen.
“What do you see your future as you to be in this world?” NBC4’s Whitney Harding asked Rayne.
“Hopefully, somewhat what it’s like right now,” he replied. “Because it’s enjoyable right now.”
