Always Best Care® CEO Provides Americans with Helpful Advice For Family Caregiver Month

Company Receives Industry Leader Recognitions; Honors Own Caregivers

November 24, 2014 // // Roseville, CA - In support of family caregivers nationwide and National Family Caregiver Month in November, Always Best Care® Senior Services Chief Executive Officer Michael Newman announced today his "Best Advice" for helping families identify the need for increased care for their loved ones at home.

Founded in 1996, Always Best Care began franchising in 2007 and is one of the fastest growing senior care franchise systems in the USA and Canada. It was recently recognized with several industry leader distinctions and also honored those among its own 5,000+ caregiver network with its annual awards series.

Best Advice for In-Home Caregivers

"With more than 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day, very few of us are free from the vital and very difficult role of caring for an aging parent or other loved one," said Michael Newman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Always Best Care. "There is hardly a job more important or more emotionally, physically and financially challenging. In support of National Family Caregiver Month, I not only salute caregivers everywhere -- including our very own network of 5,000+ women and men – who are dedicated to providing quality and compassionate care, but I also am pleased to provide the following tips that might help families better recognize the need for increased care for their mother or father at home."

Five signs your loved one may need more care at home:

1. Failure to Thrive - Your senior has difficulty with daily activities; doesn’t eat well; isn’t showering as often as before; can’t keep the house as clean; isn’t dressing as well.

2. Chronic Health Conditions - Your loved one may be getting sick more often; losing or gaining weight; becoming more frail; having difficulty walking or with balance issues; or needing more time to recover from colds.

3. Behavioral Changes - He or she has become more forgetful, more agitated and is having mood swings.

4. Medication Management Issues - Your mom or dad is forgetting to take prescribed medications.

5. Socialization Declines - Conversations are getting shorter; there’s less community involvement and less engagement with friends.

Always Best Care Honors Caregivers

In a nationwide competition, Always Best Care selected seven caregivers as recipients of the company’s 2014 annual awards. The honors are given to caregivers who:

· Acknowledge and meet the unique physical, emotional and practical needs of clients and their families

· Have improved the quality of life for clients and their families

· Have been available and enthusiastically step in when needed due to absence of other caregivers or unanticipated demand
