Always Best Care Expands in Canada, Bringing in-demand Senior Services to Calgary

Local Husband-and-Wife Team Open Always Best Care of Calgary to Deliver Award-Winning Senior Care Services to their Local Community

Always Best Care Senior Services, one of the leading senior care franchise systems in the United States, announced today the opening of its newest location in Canada. Always Best Care of Calgary is now providing award-winning senior care services throughout SW Calgary and surrounding areas. The new business is owned by local husband-and-wife team Kiersten Wudel and Kris Rudy.

The couple brings a variety of skills – including Wudel’s background as a registered nurse and Rudy’s experience as a recruiter – to their new entrepreneurial endeavor that will aid in developing client and caregiver relationships. Wudel is a Calgary native who has spent her career in the healthcare industry after graduating from the University of Calgary with a degree in Nursing. Rudy grew up in Manitoba, moving to Calgary twenty years ago as a small business owner. First-time franchisees, both found what they were looking for in Always Best Care, which is the opportunity to help others while investing in an established brand with a strong business model.

“After 12 years working in Acute Care, I know firsthand that our community needs more access to homecare support,” said Kiersten Wudel, co-owner of Always Best Care of Calgary. “Kris and I want to provide services that will allow seniors to remain in their homes as long as they want to, living their happiest and healthiest lives.”

Kris Rudy added, “Calgary’s senior population is growing rapidly, and with Always Best Care, we have an opportunity to enhance quality of life and bring peace of mind to many families in our region. We are excited to build our caregiving team and make a difference here at home.”   

Always Best Care’s growth in Canada is being spearheaded by Steve Kelly, who was awarded a Canadian Master Franchise territory and opened Always Best Care of Oakville, Ontario, in 2020. As part of the master agreement, Kelly is responsible for driving the brand’s expansion throughout Canada by attracting new franchise owners like Wudel and Rudy. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome Kiersten and Kris to the Always Best Care family and look forward to supporting them as they serve in the Calgary area,” said Steve Kelly, Master Franchisee for Always Best Care in Canada. “They have a passion for helping others, and we are confident their work ethic, values and integrity make them a true asset to their community and to our brand as we expand our presence in Alberta, Ontario and beyond.”
