From Open Arms Solutions

Home is where the heart is. For the caregivers of Open Arms Solutions, home is where they strive to give aging adults the dignity to maintain their lives in a familiar environment. Julie Kollada began her in-home care business after watching a loved one struggle with Alzheimer's and since Kollada dedicated her home care business to the people she and her team care for.

Open Arms Solutions' caregivers and staff keep people engaged with daily life and give families the assurance that they will be connected with their loved one and their treatment every step of the way. From meal preparation and errands to memory care and transfer assistance, caregivers are companions specially trained to provide the best in one-on-one care.

In order to offer excellent personal care, companion care and certified nursing assistants each employee goes through a series of screenings and a multiple interview process before stepping foot in a caree's home. One of the questions Kollada and her team ask themselves when deciding whether to hire someone is by asking, "Would we let his person care for our own parent?" Everyone works as a team to stay involved with the care of each individual. Open Arms Solutions provides their services spanning over the counties of North Cook County and Lake County. The organization surpasses state mandates of checking in on hired cargivers and uses automated check-in services to ensure they arrive on time for their clients.

With Open Arms Solutions families can rely on support that exceeds their needs and calms their minds. If you are seeking one-on-one care that you can trust, contact Open Arms Solutions.
