“We should all have healthy, fresh food. Some seniors default to frozen and canned foods when grocery shopping becomes burdensome. Our caregivers grocery shop and prepare meals, making sure to cook extra for leftovers that can be reheated easily.” — Alex Petukhov, co-owner
For some seniors, moving to a long-term care facility can be disruptive and even traumatizing. Today, many people who need help seek alternative sources of care that allow them to remain in their homes as they age. Best Senior Care, an agency licensed to provide personal services and nursing care, makes it possible for seniors to remain at home as long as possible.
Founded in 2002, Best Senior Care offers customized, in-home care plans that include assistance with eating, bathing, toileting, dressing, grooming and household tasks. Family owned and operated, the agency provides one-on-one relationships with clients and quickly responds to their needs. With no corporate bureaucracy, Best Senior Care can offer services that a franchise agency might deny, such as allowing a caregiver to accompany a client to a family wedding or on a vacation.
The process begins with an in-home assessment of the client, followed by a safety assessment of the home. A plan of care is developed by a registered nurse and a caregiver is carefully matched with the client to ensure that they are compatible and have the experience and skills to meet the client’s needs.
Most caregivers with Best Senior Care are Certified Nursing Assistants who are friendly, well trained and fluent in English. Many come from nursing homes or long-term care backgrounds. To maintain its high standards, Best Senior Care is in regular contact with clients and staff to explore any areas of concern. “Our communication is direct and productive,” says agency co-owner Alex Petukhov. “Clients and family members appreciate that there is no bureaucracy standing in the way of solutions.”
