We needed someone to stay with a family member while we were out out the house for an extended period. Our contact with Home Instead Senior Care was professional as was the staff member who came to our home. She was always punctual and most helpful. We were well pleased by our experience and do not hesitate to recommend the agency.

Very fond of Shirley appreciated her companionship. Primarily needed her for driving and errands. I'm new at this and it was a very fine experience. I will miss Shirley and so will my dog.

The management at the Oak Park office has been very professional and caring of my loved one. They have always been available when we needed someone to talk with or come out to the home. Their caregivers are very caring and provide quality care. If we ever need a replacement, they are quick to staff someone. We are happy to give them a 5 star rating.

I hired Home Instead to provide 24/7 home care for several days after my brother's surgery. I was very impressed with the overall quality of the service and their caregivers. The caregivers were helpful, kind and considerate of my brother's preferences. The attention to details was great. This agency far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend them, without reservation. And my brother was very pleased too.

Home Instead made it possible for my mother to stay in her own home with her pets. With family living far away, it was comforting to know that Mom wasn't alone, and that she was well cared for. As her health became worse, Mom's care became quite involved. Her caregivers were up to the task. They were kind, dependable and knowledgable. They respected my mother's independent spirit, and were able to adapt their care to her changing needs and abilities. I am grateful to all the staff at Home Instead for everything they did to make my mother safe and comfortable.

My caregiver, Mary has the gift of love. She kept my apartment clean, so I would not get depressed and was always there when I needed her. She knows your needs before things together. Put all of this together and you have a reason to live.

The presence of your caregivers has helped my mom. She is less angry, so that helps me; I think this is because she has more people to talk to. She is also very happy the caregivers get her out walking most days. I find your service dependable.

As a Geriatric Care Manager I am very happy to have Tia and Richard H. that I can refer families to when they are looking for great care for their loved ones to enable them to stay in their home. I know that they will find a caregiver that will meet the physical and mental needs of the senior they will be caring for and their caregivers are dependable, professional, well-trained and compassionate. Tia and Richard are great about communicating any questions or concerns with the family and have always been proactive in finding solutions if problems do arise.
