Always Best Care Senior Services

Friday, April 28, 2017

Erin Nichols and Mick OsterymerAlways Best Care Senior Services of Denver (ABC), under the direction of president and owner-operator Erin Nichols, has been a long-time community supporter of several of Denver’s high-profile arts and health-related organizations.

“Giving back to the community is a win-win for our team,” states Nichols, “We feel that we share common goals and objectives with our partner non-profit arts and health-related organizations and are proud to support their events and education programs.”

Since 1996, Always Best Care has helped hundreds of families with non-medical, in-home care and assisted living referral services. ABC’s passion for helping people maintain a safe, independent and dignified lifestyle represents the strong foundation of Always Best Care; every client receives extraordinary care in an inspiring environment with caring and compassionate staff.  Always Best Care Senior Services provides senior care in the Denver Metro Front Range communities from Castle Rock to Longmont. For additional information, contact Always Best Care at (303) 952-3060.

In 2016, ABC was entertainment sponsor for Colorado Ballet’s “Queen of Hearts Ball” and provided the funding for entertainment by Tony-award winner Tom Wopat.  Proceeds from the Ball were used for ballet dance scholarships, as well as for  Colorado Ballet education and community engagement programs, which make more than 30,000 contacts each year. 

In 2017, ABC was presenting sponsor of The Little Mermaid ballet, performed at the June Swaner Gates Concert Hall at the Newman Center for Performing Arts. This production sold out quickly, and was instrumental in helping Colorado Ballet exceed projected ticket sales revenue for the 2016-2017 season. 

Since 2014, ABC has been a significant supporter of “Saturday Night Alive,” the mega-fundraiser for the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.  SNA raises nearly $1M annually to provide funding for over 50,000 Colorado students to attend performances at the Denver Center for Performing Arts.

ABC also supports Central City Opera, and Nichols and her team members often volunteer to help increase Guild membership, help plant flowers in the opera house garden as well as help with maintenance of the historic homes used as residences for opera singers who perform during the summer Festival Season. 

In addition to arts and education outreach, Nichols and her ABC team have recently supported the Alzheimer’s Association at the “Reason to Hope” event and the ALS Association in fundraising for research and patient services through participation in the “Walk to Defeat ALS” and “Ski to Defeat ALS” at Eldora Mountain Resort.
