Home Care Reviews for Home Instead Senior Care - Chicago, IL

I am a current client of this provider

Our caregiver Liz is exceptional. Not only does she follow my instructions she also sees and executes tasks. I have not even thought of her sunny, cheerful attitude that makes our aches and pains almost tolerable. She has literally rejuvenated two old people.

After our Dad passed away, we needed someone to stay with our Mom during the day. The staff at Home Instead matched us with a care giver who was perfect for Mom and her particular needs. For 3 years, Jean was reliable and provided Mom with the best of care and companionship. As Mom's care needs changed toward the end, the staff at Home Instead were able to provide us with the additional help that we needed - even within hours. We are so pleased to have found Home Instead! They were always available, caring, and supportive. We highly recommend Home Instead for any family looking for a caregiving provider that is reliable and responsive to their needs.

Home Instead came to the rescue when my mom, who has Alzheimer's, declined quickly and needed a caregiver. The office staff are responsive, understanding and work quickly to meet your needs. The caregivers are simply amazing - caring, friendly, patient and truly loving. I highly recommend Home Instead!
