    The Home Instead of Green Valley staff did much for me as I recovered from hip surgery. They stayed over initially at night, helping me in so many ways. Shopping, house work, watering and feeding my birds, until I could do it. Elie Serrano, in particular, drove with me and helped me shop until I could be independent and do those things for myself. She was so helpful and caring and listened to me as I needed to talk. I would recommend them to anyone needing help.

    They hire anyone who can pass a background check. They will train employees if the employees are willing to pay for training. Most are not willing to pay for training because it comes out of their wages. So a lot are unqualified too care for your relatives. I had a few that were great caregivers for my father, but the rest almost killed my dad. In fact I have pages upon pages of them reporting falls and overdoses because they were unqualified to properly lift him and give him his medication.

    Home Instead - Oak Park, IL is the group that we went with and they're wonderful and we're very happy with them. I couldn't have asked for better ladies and better care. They have just gone out of their way. We have someone every single day and that's not easy with today's market of employees and staffing. Tia is the manager of the group in Oak Park and she has worked diligently to get us the two ladies that we have that are wonderful. They get my husband up in the morning and help him dress. They bathe him. They will get things for me, either in my bedroom or the kitchen. They will make my lunch and my husband's lunch. They will make sure that he has water or some liquid to drink, basically kind of like your mother or your sister would take care of you. They're wonderful. There isn't anything they won't try to do to help you. I don't ask too much of them. I just really cannot say enough about the two women who are coming and the agency itself. I have no problem with the cost. We're lower middle class people, and what we're paying for the help we're getting is greatly appreciated and I think it takes care of our needs.

    Both Richard and Tia couldn’t of been more helpful in helping us find temporary help for mom. Even though they knew this was only a short time situation. They found us 2 great people to help our. Mom was safe and EPL taken care of. Both persons showed up on time and never requested any time off. Richard was able to get us people after only a 24 hour notice. I would recommend Homeintead oak park to all. Great job and thanks again.

    Home Instead caregivers always took the best care of my grandmother in law. I would recommend them to anyone I know. She would go above and beyond to fulfill her every need. Because of that my wife and I were given peace of mind that her grandmother would always be ok in their care.

    My husband and I decided to try Home Instead-Oak Park for my bedridden 83 year old grandmother. She really wants to be at home however both myself and my husband work. When I had the initial consultation with Richard, we discussed my grandmother’s wants and the care that she currently needs. The caregiver that was sent was exactly what we need for my grandmother. She is a great companion and takes very good care of her. When my husband and I need to get out for a date night, I know I can call Richard and he will have someone here to stay with her. All of the caregivers that have taken care of her are always on time and have the knowledge to make sure she is clean, fed, and also engaged. I strongly recommend Home Instead-Oak Park if you are looking for someone to care for your loved one.

    Home Instead has provided 4 hrs of service 6 days a week to my mom for the past 5 years. The owners of the Oak Park Home Instead have been wonderful. Dependable, helpful, caring, and understanding and have done their best to take care of every issue that has arisen. I strongly recommend the Harrisons and their team.

    I have worked with Home Instead OP for over 10 years to take care of an elderly relative who lived alone. 10 years ago, it stared with a few hours a day and as years progressed, it became full time live in care. I can not say enough about the care and dedication provided by the management. I live out of state and if urgent situations occurred at the house, management went above and beyond to take care of things and keep me informed. Many of the caregivers over the years became like family. They protected and cared for my relative like member of their own family. My elderly relative wanted to age in her home and with the help of Home Instead OP, we were able to make that happen.

    Our two caregivers make up a cohesive team. They are very well matched and make my life easier. The main purpose is caregiving to my husband. One of them likes to cook, and the other one likes to clean, so they make a good team that way. They also provide companionship, bathing and dressing him, and giving his medication. I like the way that they picked out the caregivers to match the patients. They bring them for interviews with me, so that they can see the home in which we live. Then the caregiver determines whether they want to work there as well as me determining whether I want them to work. I'm satisfied. I picked out Home Instead based on the reviews in Caring.com.

    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.

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.

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.
