More Information


In the mid-nineties, 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 with finding the right placement. 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, Mike acted on his vision and founded Always Best Care.  Since that time, Always Best Care has become one of North America’s leading providers of non-medical home care, independent and assisted living referral services and skilled nursing care. 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, a successful business 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.
