“Since joining Best of Care, I’ve been proud to expand our agency’s geographic footprint, increase staff recruitment and improve training and educational activities. By implementing new communications technologies, we’re keeping our team connected and providing even more responsive care to clients and their families.”
– Kevin Smith, President and COO, Best of Care, Inc.
“We understand your family’s caregiving challenges because our family has been there too. We strive to provide affordable quality home care services. To match your loved one with the right care professional, we always ask ourselves, would this be the type of person who I would want to care for my mother and father?”
– Stephen Smith, Founder and CEO, Best of Care, Inc.
Since 1981, family-owned and operated Best of Care, Inc. has helped aging adults from Greater Boston to Cape Cod and the Islands. We help people maintain independence, stay safe and address their health needs as they age in place. Our services help you or loved ones with daily activities of living, address mobility challenges and offer much-needed interaction. We support a caring environment, promote healthy living, and keep people positively engaged. By monitoring the care that’s provided and making adjustments to the care plan when they are needed, we can help you or your loved ones avoid hospitalization or nursing home care.
What do we believe? How do we work?
We’re not just caregivers, we’re trusted advisors. We help our clients and their families assess their unique (and often complex) care challenges, then design a plan of care that’s tailored for their needs. Caregivers may visit a client in their home three days a week for three hours a day. Or, our caregiving team may provide round-the clock support. Regardless, we’re constantly monitoring each client’s situation. If changes to the plan are needed, we make sure that each client’s designated family contact(s) are on-board and involved.
Our employees’ education, growth and professional development are a priority. We provide a rigorous orientation and training program for new employees. We also provide ongoing training, certification opportunities, highly competitive pay and benefits for our team. As a result, Best of Care manages its turnover well in an industry where high turnover is prevalent.
We’re actively cultivating a new generation of home care professionals. In partnership with Quincy Housing Authority and Quincy College, Best of Care recently launched a new Home Health Aide non-credit training program. Students who graduate from that program become home care aides with Best of Care.
Our alliances strengthen our region’s home care infrastructure. Best of Care is a designated home care provider for clients of Massachusetts’ Aging Services Access Points and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission. We also work with Visiting Nurse Associations, the Veterans’ Administration and many other community partners that offer adult day care, assisted living facilities and long-term care planning.
We’re into the latest technology. From telemedicine to remote monitoring to assistive devices to voice-recognition information systems for our clients’ families, the individual plans of care we create for our clients incorporate the right combination of high-tech with an always-needed personal touch.
As more people choose to age in place, Best of Care will continue to uphold its commitment to quality care and personalized service.
