They have the ability to provide all the care she needs. They are compassionate to her. I have been using them for over a year now and we have never had any issues.

I am wheelchair bound and cannot walk on my left foot. I am sleeping in our den instead of going upstairs. She helps me when I need help. I am good as long as I'm sitting down. I like that they have provided a great caregiver for us.

This time, I broke my ankle, so having them in helping me and my husband around the house has been great. We needed someone that we could rely on during this time. They are in Hinsdale, so it is close to us, and they supply someone terrific. They have been helpful. They have helped us understand the whole program.

They provide services that I need. I have two different people that come and they both are willing to do what needs to be done and what I ask them to do. The care takers that come are always very prompt or even a bit early. I'm never concerned that someone has forgotten about their shift.

She is confined to her apartment, and she doesn't leave. She is so lucky to have them. They are very thorough. They follow up every day since I am out of town.

Some of them are fabulous. Some of them, like fill-ins, are not good. One lady sat around and didn't help so I had to do the laundry. Most of their caregivers are very good people.

It allows me to spend time with my husband and not just take care of my mom. It has been a life saver. I have already recommended them. They are so professional and kind.

They help her by being present. He helps transfer her from her wheelchair to the couch. I like the owners and I like our caregiver. I also like the fact that they are good about coordinating with my insurance company.

He really looks forward to the caregiver coming over. They give me time to do the things around the home and run errands. They seem to screen their employees very well, and we are very happy with the caregivers they send us.

They help me with everyday things. They will occasionally provide transportation. They are well trained. They do everything they are supposed to do. They are fine people.

Our caregiver helps in a myriad of ways. I can't say all the stuff. She is pleasant and upbeat, he looks forward to her coming. They chortle, she makes meals and does diaper changes. She does it beautifully since it's an embarrassing thing to need help with. She has just been a gem. Our transitional caregiver was excellent at helping him get used to the new things at home. I already have. They have sponsored a few things at the community house.

She is bedfast, and all of our efforts go towards her. Their first responsibility is my wife, and they check on her throughout the day. They have provided excellent, trained, and very nice ladies to take care of my wife. They are congenial, and she likes them, and they like her.

They know what they are talking about, and they have seen this thing before. They change his poos and tinkles. I like the men from Lithuania. They are wonderful.

We find the services helpful, but we do find it as an intrusion, since we aren't used to having people here for 12 plus hours. It would be interesting if whoever is there at the agency could come by to see how the caregiver is doing. The problem we have is that some of our caregivers are better than others.

It would be great if they would email a copy of the schedule to me weekly or monthly and communicate scheduling changes. I think they could follow up and do more light-housework stuff.

I like the interaction between the caregiver and my mother. She is very good at getting her to play games and just interact. I like the communication. The caregiver is extremely caring and goes above and beyond my expectations.

I live in a different state, so it has helped me mostly with the distance. I like the way they take care of my loved one when they are there.

The caregiver could lift him from his chair to the transport chair to go to the bathroom. She was very strong. They're very reliable. The girl that we have is outstanding and even came on weekends when they couldn't get anybody.

Stay Away from this agency! Independence 4 Seniors hires unqualified and untrained caregivers. They show up at all different hours. They are not attentive to the client. They are on their phones or doing their own thing. The owner is rude and has an heir about her and speaks to you in a condescending manner. Like your business doesn't matter. The agency charges high fees but does not put the money into training the caregivers. Some caregivers have no knowledge of caring for patients with memory issues or fall risk. It is a gamble to put your loved one in their care. The communication is poor between you and the agency. And Between the agency and the caregivers. It is a sad situation when you have to find care for a loved one and can't find quality care. It is hard to find good care for a loved one. Needed to write this review so you don't get stuck with a bad agency. Stay away from Independence 4 Seniors if you value your loved ones care.

It is important because the quality of the person impacts the quality of the life. If things aren't going well with my mother, then things aren't well with me. They consistently send quality caregivers. We had a visit from the owner to my mom's hospital room. All of these are positive indicators to me.

I don't have to worry about my sister for those few hours each day or each week. I can just judge by the person they sent to be with my sister each week that they're great. The lady they send is very nice, pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful.

They could have higher quality caregivers. They could improve the customer care because questions or issues we had, were met with negative attitudes. One caregiver was condescending toward my loved one, and the agency seemed annoyed that we wanted to change.

I can't go shopping or take myself to the doctors. I would definitely recommend it. I like what kind of people they are. I can depend on them. I can deduct the money into my health care benefit.

I didn't want anybody, but they are fine. They just are helpful and pretty good. Some of them are really good. They do everything they say they are going to do, and I think that is a good reason to recommend them.

Her caretaker has allowed me to sleep through the night. I am 100% confident that if anything were to happen, I would get a phone call. They are extremely professional and we have never had a phone call go unanswered. There has always been 100% communication.

They have helped me feel confident that I can leave him in their care. They were quick to provide care and it was pretty seamless. I found that I could leave, go to work, and feel comfortable leaving the caregiver there.

The caregivers are very independent and don't need to have constant contact with us. I like the personal contact with management.

The individual can be more suggestive and be opposed to open-ended questions so that way my loved one doesn't have an opportunity to say no. They are quick to follow through with any questions or changes that need to be changed.

This is our first time working with them and we feel good about the caregiver who comes. She does a great job. It's all been good care. She works nights here and she's kind and patient with her. She gets my mom up and down as needed to use the restroom.

I would tell someone about Independence-4-Seniors Home Care because I think they are really good, except for the first caregiver, which seemed a lot better than she ended up being. Independence-4-Seniors Home Care has made life easier because I know there is someone there with my loved one, and I do n't have to worry about her as much. She is happier with having a live-in caregiver.

One of the caregivers is very good, and one of the other caregivers isn't so good. I couldn't do it without Independence-4-Seniors Home Care because of my physical abilities.

I would tell someone that the caregivers seem to be well-trained and know the procedures. The owner puts them through an awesome training. It's obvious that the caregivers speak and act like the owner. My aunt has never had services like this before. For years, she has lived alone. Now that we are getting her weaned off of medication, she is much more cooperative and happy.

I am satisfied with the care. Independence-4-Seniors Home Care has sent good workers that I have no problems with. Independence-4-Seniors Home Care is a help for me. I have the help I need for my husband, which is why we hired them.

At the beginning, I had one caregiver but she felt the care was too much for her. I think when Independence-4-Seniors Home Care brings caregivers on a case they should explain more what the work will entail so they can meet that demand. Independence-4-Seniors Home Care has helped with my stress level and being able to do things I have to do without being worried about the client's care.

We've had the same caregiver for five years and we have been very pleased. When our regular caregiver took time off, Independence-4-Seniors assigned two really good caregivers to take his place during that time. The office staff is delightful when I call them, even though that's not often since I've been so pleased. If it weren't for Independence-4-Seniors, I could not take care of my husband by myself. The impact has been wonderful.
