    I hired Home Instead to provide companionship and conversation for my father 3 hours a several times a week. The caregiver helped with lunch, played cards, reminded him to take his meds and assisted us with simple chores around the house. The office and caregiver assigned to my father was very helpful and had been with him for 2 years. This gave us peace of mind knowing that someone was watching out for him. They were very professional in everything they did. Thank you for being there for us.

    Home Instead provided terrific care and great communication! They told me right away about any issues of concern. Home Instead was always respectful of my mother's pride, with 2 mornings/week care for my mother, it gave me huge peace of mind.

    We've been using Home Instead Senior Care - Grayslake for my husband for about a month now. They come to our home. They watch him so he doesn't fall, they help him to the bathroom, and they do puzzles and card games. I have them for three hours every Thursday. They're very caring people and he seems to enjoy them. I appreciate that they come to the house and that they're always on time.

    Going outside your family to involve a unknown caregiver is scary. Most of us don't have time to place an ad in the paper and interview many people. So I chose to contact Home Instead, who does the interviewing and background checks for you. Their caregivers are very capable service oriented people. I've always felt comfortable with the caregivers they have sent to help take care of my Mom. Home Instead is an honest and reliable company who you can count on. They act professionally yet are easy to talk to and get to know your specific needs.

    For my mom, not myself, but I was able to coordinate repute time for her, and after have dismal results from another agency, Maria from Home Instead Grayslake made my mom who she needed to be. Helped with whatever was asked, but most importantly was able to provide companionship to my mom as we struggled with my dad's hospice stay and subsequent passing. Cannot say enough good about Maria and the ENTIRE staff I had the genuine pleasure to interact with there. Very highly recommended...as they care even more than family for those you love the most.

    The care provider from Home Instead has been a life saver. She is prompt and reliable,and has been a true friend to my sister. I don't know what we would have done without her. Home Instead has been an attentive observer, and has contacted me whenever questions arose about my sister's well-being. I am grateful that I found Home Instead.

    A home care lady from Home Instead Senior Care comes in once a week just for companionship for my mother. The quality of care is fine, I don’t see any issues with it because it is mostly companionship. My mom loves the lady, and they get along pretty well. We have found a good match for her. I gave Home Instead a high rating because they are really good and they call me every two weeks to check if everything is OK, that I don’t need anything else. They are very thorough, and they stop by to check on my mom and the home care lady. I would definitely recommend this agency to other people.

At this time in our lives we need a great deal of care because were are still in our own home. Our Germaine is our caregiver and we wouldn't be able to keep our home without her help.
