Always Best Care Opens First Location In New Mexico

Local Entrepreneur Provides Award-Winning
Senior Care Services in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho

ROSEVILLE, Calif. (Jan. 31, 2017
) – Always Best Care Senior Services, one of the leading senior care franchise systems in the United States, announced today that Darlene Wood has opened the first Always Best Care franchised location in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Located at 6300 Riverside Plaza NW, Always Best Care of Albuquerque provides senior care services in the Albuquerque metro area and surrounding communities including Rio Rancho.

Always Best Care is one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care, assisted living placement services and skilled home health care. The company delivers its services through an international network of more than 200 independently owned and operated franchise territories throughout the United States and Canada.

“Always Best Care’s reputation as an industry leader in providing senior care services has allowed our brand to expand to new states such as New Mexico,” said Jake Brown, President of Always Best Care. “Darlene has opened our first location in the state and I can’t think of anyone better to take on this territory. Her previous success as a business owner, combined with her love for helping others, makes us proud to have her join Always Best Care and bring our services to the people of Albuquerque.”

In 2012, Darlene Wood’s brother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. During this difficult period in her life, she experienced firsthand the impact of in-home care and assisted living. It was then that Wood first found a true passion in helping others care for their families, and sought out to start a business that would allow her to provide families with the exceptional care they need, as her brother once did.

“I am driven by my personal story to provide care for those in need,” said Wood. “I chose Always Best Care because its values seamlessly aligned with my own and fit the criteria of the business I was looking for, all while providing me with the support and training I needed.”

By working with case managers, social workers, discharge planners, doctors, and families, Always Best Care franchise owners provide affordable, comprehensive solutions that can be specifically matched to meet a client’s particular physical or social needs. The hallmark services of the Always Best Care include non-medical in-home care and assisted living finder and referral services, with skilled home health care now being phased in throughout the country.
