Q: Why choose Best Senior Care?

A: As a family-owned-and-operated business, we can serve our clients promptly and offer premium, individualized care — for up to 24 hours a day — at affordable prices. Over 20 years, we have built trusting relationships with clients and their families, caring for them with expertise, patience, kindliness and love as we would our own parents. All caregivers are carefully selected certified nursing assistants, supervised by registered nurses and thoroughly assessed through background checks and references. 

Q: What is your approach to service?  

A: We begin with an in-home assessment of the client and their needs. A registered nurse then develops a specifically tailored care plan, and we introduce a caregiver to the family, keeping compatibility in mind. Ultimately, we want our clients to feel heard, understood and cared for with dignity and respect. 

Q: How has the global pandemic impacted your business?

A: The American population is aging, and as life expectancy increases, so does the eventual need for at-home care. By the end of 2020, in the heart of the Covid-19 crisis, the number of people receiving care at home jumped from five million to 12 million. But Covid-19 has also exacerbated a pre-pandemic trend in our industry — the shortage of at-home healthcare providers. There are likely several contributing factors, including the growing number of seniors and the difficult nature of the work. But we remain committed to providing the highest quality of care to our clients, and we are dedicated to helping them and their families navigate their home care journeys. 

For 20 years, Best Senior Care has provided seniors with top-quality, individualized care for up to 24 hours a day, helping them live confidently and age gracefully in their own homes. “Our communication is open, direct and productive, with no bureaucracy to get in the way of a solution,” says the company’s founder, Alex Petukhov.
