Home Helpers sent me a caregiver who was totally useless, but I had a caregiver I really liked who is off until January. My caregiver now is set in her ways and doesn't want to provide care the way I want them to. My mother doesn't like anyone here, but we have come to the conclusion she needs someone here. For us, the impact has been important so she wouldn't fall.

Home Helpers is great at taking care of my wife and I. Home Helpers caregivers are totally with my wife during every step of the day. Home Helpers helps me to do the things that I need to do outside the home as well as take a break knowing that my wife is being well taken care of.

I needed to hire full time round the clock caregivers for my mom who was moving into a nursing home because she had dementia and the nursing home required it before they would admit her. Michael and his team were able to establish providers within hours of my calling. My mom was moved back to assisted living days later and put on hospice. His team worked with hospice to ensure my mom had round the clock care. One of his caregivers worked on her day off just because she became so fond of my mom. She attended my mom's funeral Mass and even brought me flowers. Not only did I get the care my mom needed, I made a new friend for life! I don't usually do reviews but I had to as I want to help other families make the right decision on who to hire to care for their loved ones.

I have already delivered fliers for Home Helpers to doctors offices. They communicate very well, their staff has a genuine feeling of care towards their patients, and the agency is aware of services being provided. My personal life is personally better. They communicate to me and with me.

Home Helpers has made us really happy with the caregiver that they sent us. We couldn't be happier. Home Helpers has given me a piece of mind to know that he is getting his needs met, I am sure he feels the same way.

Home Helpers isn't consistent with the care that is provided to me. I have been asking Home Helpers for a couple of months now for consistency in caregivers. Home Helpers' caregivers are very sweet. I am easily moved to tears because of the inconsistency of caregivers that I have.

Home Helpers' owner tries to satisfy their clients. Home Helpers needs to have better trained caregivers. I have had several caregivers who were poorly trained.

When chatting with a neighbor, the discussion turned to the caregivers for our elder mothers. When I mentioned the issues I was encountering, she suggested checking out Home Helpers. She provided a glowing recommendation. She stated, yes there were minor issues each were addressed by Michael or Tracy of Home Helpers. The next day, a call was placed. A few days later, Michael was sitting at the kitchen table with my mother and me. The services met my "has to list" and caregivers training programs were very impressive. Arrangements were made to engage Home Helpers. Michael stated he had two possible caregivers, both who lived less than 15 minutes away. The two caregivers, within one week, had won over the heart of my mother. No longer was she “concerned” that control of her house had been taken away. She like the foods which were cooked, playing word games and being able to work in her yard. The caregivers “listened” to her and talked "with" her. The communication which is present: between the caregivers , with me, the primary family member and with my mother is refreshing. There is a TEAM working to support my mothers, which will help keep her in her home. It has been two months and Home Helpers have met or exceeded my expectations of support and care. Strongly recommend you give them a try.

I really enjoy Home Helpers because they're not here too long and they go out and are really helpful. Home Helpers makes my life easier because I lost my car and I have no way of going anywhere, so I'm happy there's someone here to take me shopping.

Home Helpers is very accurate, on time, and they do what I want to be done and sometimes even a little extra. They keep me company. The caregivers help make a positive experience by keeping me company, being there for me, and they don't hesitate to stay a little longer. They have gone to get my medicine.

Home Helpers is a good agency because they've taken such good care of my mother, and they're always available. The services help my mother because she's not allowed to be by herself anymore, and I couldn't be with her everyday. We now have a caregiver around the clock.

Home Helpers is convenient because the caregiver takes photos on her phone and sends them to me, so I know what groceries to order and if the client is taking her medicine. The photos are very important. I wouldn't use them without the photos. I know that my mother-in-law is being safely taken care of by the Home Helpers caregiver.

I would tell someone that I have no reason not to recommend Home Helpers, and I would tell them about the manners and knowledge of the caregivers. I didn't think that I needed the services from Home Helpers, but now I can see what they have added to my life.

Home Helpers is accommodating and the business owners are caring. Home Helpers wants to work with you. If there are any issues, they work to address them. Being a child of my parents, it is wonderful knowing that there is someone caring for my parents for me.

I would tell someone that Home Helpers seems to be flexible and able to work with us for scheduling purposes. We haven't had to change hours around yet, but there could be a need for that in the future. Home Helpers' services relieves me of having to go to the client's home so often, and of having to do so many simple things for him. It's a good feeling that he's being watched over more than I could have.

I would hesitate to recommend Home Helpers because of their pool of caregivers. Home Helpers' services have allowed me to continue working and to live my own life while they take care of the client. They also give the client the ability to continue living in her own house.

I would recommend Home Helpers because we've had very good luck with them. People show up on time, they're personable, well-trained, and they offer good companionship.

Home Helpers is very down to earth. They're very easy to talk to and they're very helpful. They seem concerned with what you're looking for. They're ready to give you the best advice. I can't praise them enough. My mother has a 24 Hr caregiver and she's like a member of the family.

After interviewing the management from four home care companies as well as those individuals from each company who would provide daily 24-hour care for my mother in an independent living community, we chose Home Helpers. We were impressed with the high quality of the companies with whom we met, but Home Helpers seemed to have an edge in their determination to match the right caregivers to the needs of the patient. We hired Home Helpers in early 2016 and they provided mom’s continuous care until her death at age 100 in the Fall. In the intervening months, Home Helpers was instrumental in helping my mom enjoy life to the fullest extent possible. Lorna, mom’s caregiver, routinely made it a point to involve her in the many activities within her retirement community and even accompanied mom on an outing to the Macy’s Spring Flower Show in downtown Chicago. Lorna also assisted mom on a trip to the Art Institute of Chicago as well as several excursions to the Morton Arboretum. When mom entered hospice, Home Helpers worked seamlessly with the hospice company to make her as comfortable as possible. We are most appreciative of the effort Home Helpers made - particularly Michael, Tracy, Lorna and Araceli – in all they did for my mom. More importantly, I know that mom appreciated all that they did for her as well.

I needed help after I shattered my ankle. Every person who came in was respectful of my home and took care of all my needs. It wasn't the most exciting job as a lot was just watching me try to do things. They helped with light cooking, light cleaning, sponge baths, help dressing, moving around my house, brought me coffee and towards the end, we played games. The companionship was really great..

Home Helpers was just that! We needed someone to assist my Mom on Christmas Eve and they came through. Our needs were somewhat last minute and Home Helpers easily accommodated us. They sent Tracy who was warm and personable. So much so that we insisted that she join us for dinner and try Mom's family pasta sauce recipe brought over from Italy by her mother. The evening was a success. Many Thanks!

Alls well that ends well. I found myself needing surgery for a hip tear that would require six weeks of recovery. I found Michael and Home Helpers. What a gift. I had four trusty companions during that time who were so kind, smart and helpful. I would not have recovered so well without their help. Thank you Michael and Home Helpers !

Very impressed with Michael, his staff and his caregivers. They listen, they make every effort to get good match and fulfill needs. We interviewed several agencies and this one was the clear one to top the list. I also like the idea that the people they send are their employees, not contractors. That saves a lot of administrative hassle that makes the price a great value.

Michael, I just want to thank you and your staff for the help you have gave to me for my Mother. From the beginning your team was able to adapt to my ever changing needs that allowed her to live at the house longer. The care giver Elsie is a fantastic person and always did the extra steps it took to care for my Mother. I really cannot say enough about her and the care she showed. She is a true asset to your company. Tracy and your wife were also great . Filling in when needed and adapting to what seemed like my ever changing needs. Thank you for all the help,

Of the 3 agencies we interviewed, Michael with Home Helpers stood out as the one we felt most comfortable caring for my mother who needed 24 hour care. Michael's agency started in October of 2014 and stayed with my mother until her passing in December of 2015. Laverne was her primary care taker for the entire time. My mother was treated like family by Laverne. My mother was given great care by Michael's agency. When she had to go to a doctors appointment there was always proper assistance to helper up and down the stair lift. I highly recommend Michael and his agency. Thank you Michael and your staff.

I used Home Helpers from June of last year to January of this year to provide companion care for my mom. The care giver selected; Elsie, was a perfect match for my mom. Michael and Tracey in the office were fantastic also and great at accommodating my requests for additional coverage as my needs changed. From the first meeting with Michael to the very end, all of the people involved were responsive, courteous, friendly and followed through as needed promptly. This was truly an exemplary performance by the whole team at Home Helpers.

My wife was diagnosed with brain cancer and I needed somebody to help to take care of her. Carol was my caregiver and they saved my life. I wouldn't made it through without their help. Carol was great and we had her for almost 4 years. She's still a friend whenever I see her. They really helped me a lot.

Home Helpers is just amazing! I've been working with Michael and Thomas. My mom has dementia and she has mood swings and we can't leave her at home. Michael found us and he worked really hard to make sure it was a good match for my mom. My brother got married a few weeks back and we asked for Michelle to be her caregiver that day. Michelle is the best caregiver for her. She came out and took care of my mom and she was great. They were always polite and on time. Asolutely nothing bad thing to say. I highly recommend them to others.

My sister worked at Edward's Hospital and I was looking for a caregiver. She went to the office and found that Home Helpers was on the hospital's list. So she got me the name and called them and hired them. They're very good. I have an excellent caregiver, Liz, who is always there if you need her. When I call, she's there. I had 3 or 4 other services and Home Helpers is the best I ever had for 2 and a half years now. My caregiver is such a good cook and good at cleaning the house. She does my shopping real well. She takes care of me. I'd be lost without her.

First of all, I called several agencies and I started with one organization that turned out to be a complete disaster. When I researched Home Helpers and contacted Michael he was very informative and very genuine about the needs that we were looking for. He was very responsive and initiated very well. He set up a meeting right away. There was no delay, no "I'll call you back". He was just very responsive to our immediate needs. We have found a wonderful caregiver and she is actually priceless. Her name is Jenny. She is passionate and very attentive. My mother has Alzheimer's and she is diagnosed of stage 4 lung cancer. We have 2 separate issues going on with her medical condition. The caregiver is very in tune in trying to provide quality of life. She takes her out the best she can. She reads to her. I couldn't ask for even a better family member to be with her. If we could have 10 Jennys the world would be a wonderful place. Mike follows up regularly with the clients. He always wants to make sure if there's anything else that we need or change or any issues. It's not just where you sign and contract and then you don't see him ever again. He's very in tune to staying on top of each of clients' case.
