In the mid-1990's, just outside of Sacramento, California, Michael Newman felt frustrated by the lack of resources for seniors in his community. An owner and operator of facilities for seniors, he saw many seniors and their loved ones arrive at his facilities confused and overwhelmed after trying to find the right assisted living community. This frustration eventually shaped his vision: To create a company that would serve seniors in the community by providing trusted care, compassionate support and professional advice.
In 1996, Michael acted on his vision and founded Always Best Care. Since that time, Always Best Care has become one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care, assisted living placement services and skilled home health care (in select markets). Always Best Care was formed with the belief and agenda of taking the burden off families’ shoulders and putting it on our own.
People with passion have made Always Best Care what it is today. Although times may change, our foundation never will.
Michael Newman believes that at its heart, what makes a successful home care company is nothing more than successful relationships, at every level, in all directions. The things that make every relationship work make business relationships work too – caring, trust, respect and communication. These are the values that guide our relationships with our clients, franchisees, employees, vendors, our community and everyone we touch. Caring relationships are the foundation of our work – a sincere concern for the betterment of life that goes beyond just doing what is required, but doing the most we can for the seniors entrusted to our care.
Always Best Care began franchising in 2007 and today, ABC provides services through a network of more than 200 franchised units across the U.S. We expanded to Canada and we’re preparing to award our first European franchises, too, with projections for new senior home care agency franchises in Germany and the United Kingdom.
Let’s meet the team who will help you build your business as an Always Best Care franchisee.
