In these cases, it pays to find an agency with deep knowledge of caring for older residents and a reputation to prove it. Enter Best of Care, Inc. and their story that began 37 years ago. I spoke with Kevin Smith, President & COO of Best of Care, to learn more about his business. Kevin Smith’s father, Stephen Smith, opened Best of Care in 1981 to help serve the people in the community. Best of Care focuses on everything from general home care to highly specialized services for managing chronic conditions. These services help people living in the community by adding value to families, extending beyond the direct care that they receive. “The family members of our clients often comment that the services we provide to their loved ones allow them to continue to work, raise their own families, travel and maintain peace of mind knowing that there are professional caregivers in the home,” says Kevin Smith, President & COO of Best of Care, Inc.For an industry that generally finds it’s business with their customers’ family members, Best of Care is also family-owned and operated.“My father, Stephen Smith, started the company in 1981. Since then the agency has grown dramatically.”And that it has. Best of Care now employs over 400 caregivers who serve more than 1,500 clients throughout Greater Boston, the South Shore, South Coast, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.“The services that our caregivers provide to elderly and disabled members of the community allow them to remain at home – where they want to be,” added Smith. “Our goal is to maximize each client’s independence for as long as possible.”From helping with cooking and cleaning, to assisting with daily activities like bathing and dressing, to nursing care and rehabilitation services, support for those with moderate, severe or chronic medical conditions, Best of Care offers a concierge approach to families’ loved one’s unique needs.“It is equally important to add that the services we provide prevent our clients from hospitalization, or worse – re-hospitalization. Often, when clients return home from a hospital stay they require an increased level of care as they try to get acclimated to the surroundings of their home,” explained Smith.If you’ve started the search for an at home caregiver, make sure to check out these trustworthy tips from your BBB.Best of Care, Inc. is a BBB Accredited Business.
