In the mid-1990's, just outside of Sacramento, California in the western part of the United States, 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 after trying to find 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, Michael acted on his vision and founded Always Best Care. Since that time, Always Best Care has become one of the USA's leading providers of home and community care, residential care placement services and hospital-at-home. 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.


Always Best Care began franchising in 2007 and today, ABC provides

services through a network of more than 140 franchises across

the USA and Canada.And we were named the fastest growing senior care system

by Entrepreneur magazine in its January 2011 Franchise 500 edition.

Now this outstanding opportunity is being made available in Australia.

The Always Best Care business model has been meticulously

reviewed and adapted to specifically for Australia by a local Australian

team of healthcare and home health consultants, business

consultants and legal team.


Always Best Care also was selected as one of the best franchises for minorities.
