I appreciate all the things that are done for me by my caregiver, Caroline. She is always helpful, cheerful and always ready to be of assistance when asked or not asked. I couldn't get along without her.

I have been with Assistance Home Care South City on a continual basis since 2018. As my needs change, Assistance Home Care has provided me with the care I need to stay at home safely and I love them for that. Assistance Home Care provides my family and I a sense of peace. They are great! I am lucky to have found them. I can't thank them enough!

Assistance Home Care helped my friend for a very long time. The people are friendly and the agency is extremely kind to work with. They have compassion for the needs of the individual and help to keep people from going into homes as long as possible. I would recommend them.

Assistance home care was like having another family around for Grandma when we were not able to be there. JJ and her team always took the time to answer any questions we had and fix any issues that may arise. I couldn't imagine having anyone else around during the end of her life to help us bridge that gap.

Provider Response

Thanks for your kind words about our Team and the opportunity to play a part in you Grandma’s care! Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

Assistance Home Care promptly matched experienced In-Home Caregivers for our elderly Mom suffering from Dementia. Her Caregivers are kind, attentive, capable & caring. Our family especially appreciates AHC's efforts to provide continuity of care by assigning a small number of regularly scheduled Caregivers.

We were very hesitant to have In Home Health for our Parents. Assistance Home Care assured us they could provide good quality care with great people and they did! The caregivers were wonderful, helpful and very qualified! They always came on time and were always there when expected. Provided meals, did housekeeping services, had good ideas and just generally did a great job interacting with mom & dad. Both our parents were very happy and enjoyed all the things Assistance Home Care caregivers provided. We couldn’t have been happierwith the agency.

I use Assistance Home Care to keep my bed and bathroom clean and tidy plus prepare and serve me meals as needed. I also use their personnel to go to various appointments. The personnel are friendly and cooperative. Also they are usually on time and responsive. I have had very few problems with the personnel.

This is the most professional caregiver agency I have used since my mother began requiring 24/7 care. They are very hands-on and keep in touch with their clients and their caregivers often. They are very good at pairing clients with caregivers that are a good fit, personality and skills needed. They’re caregivers are prompt and very respectful. This agency has been very responsive and understanding to our needs and the stress we all may feel on this journey. They also offer the creation of a life journal for their clients - an added touch of service to their clients.

We're using the Assistance Home Care services, and so far it's been very good. We chose them mostly because of location. We've only had three people; two of them worked out really well and one didn’t out very well. She's actually no longer with the agency. The ones we've had consistently were very good. When we go out, we have them come and sit with my mom. I would recommend them. We've been very pleased.

We used Assistance Home Care, and we had excellent care from all of those kind ladies who did everything they could for us. They took care of my husband. They cook for him. They washed, did the dishes, and cleaned, and they were very good in providing everything that I needed. I would definitely recommend them.

We originally consulted with Allen and AHG about the options and choices available for our aging mother. The input and guidance given to my brothers and I was tremendous and we immediately hired AHG. Mom has thoroughly enjoyed the caregivers. They are all kind, caring and compassionate to her. AHG did everything they said they would do and much more from a business perspective, but they far exceeded in their relationship with mom. Gary G.

We used AHC for private home companion care for my mother - 93 yo with dementia. At first, the new people in her life was confusing; however, on the 2nd and succeeding visits Mom enjoyed everyone who came. All of the caregivers were very patient, cognizent of Mom's situation, and so very caring to her and to us.

Assistance Home Care is all about caring for people; and they do it VERY well. Our initial meeting was with Sally and Chrissy to address my parents needs. They took notes and were very attentive to what we had to say. We also were able to meet with the caregivers to address needs/concerns of my parents. (They also took notes!) After our return from vacation, my parents response was: "We want the same caregivers when you travel again. They were so nice to us and could not do enough for us." Overall, we were very impressed by the people at AHC. We will definitely use their services again in the near future.

Both of my parents suffer from Dementia and Assistance Home Care has been the perfect fit for us. The goal of my family was to keep my parents in their home for as long as possible and Assistance Home Care is doing just that. Their caregivers are very professional and trained and are great problem solvers. They never give up which is what you need when dealing with dementia. I can't say enough about how glad we are that we selected Assistance Home Care. Allen, Sally, Chrissy and Jennifer are always available if I have questions or concerns. It is truly a team approach. Wonderful company.

We have been using AHC for a year to fill in when one of our full-time assistant is not available. We've been impressed with both the management and the people that they have provided. When we had to find a new week-end person, we turned to AHC to provide the help we needed.

Assistance Home Care is a first class operation, manned by the most caring and dedicated team of professionals. They consistently demonstrate a dedication to their clients, a caring attitude for families and others, and employ a staff of highly trained and compassionate professionals. No matter the time of day, they are always available. I would highly recommend Assistance Home Care.

I am grateful for the terrific support you and your company, Assistance Home Care, gave me in caring for my husband. After being the main caregiver for 13 years, i became acquainted with your company during the last 6 months of his life. It was a time when i really needed help and for someone to care and listen to my concerns. You did all of that. I had used several other companies and was becoming frustrated in finding the help I needed along with trying to satisfy and insurance company's demands in using a long term care policy. Allen was my advocate and didn't give up when i was about to. I am so grateful that you and your staff worked tirelessly to find a caregiver that was the right fit and was willing to find a replacement to meet my satisfaction if i asked. The quality of your caregivers is top-notch and I feel so blessed in meeting them and having them come into our home. It is evident that you have high standards in your hiring process. There are so many reasons to say thank you to you and your company. At the top of the list is for Allen's promise that he wouldn't let me down and he would find the help I needed. Since I had a high expectations, that wasn't easy but he kept that promise. I thank you for taking the time to get to know your clients and treating us like family. You have that personal touch that says you really do care.

I did some research for in home care companies on the internet. I found a lot of companies but Assistance Home Care was the first one to call me back. They're fine and they did a good job.

I just have an excellent experience with Assistance Home Care as far as punctuality, availability and attitude of all the workers and Allen himself. They were more than cooperative and really bend over backwards to try and accommodate the needs of my friend. We would call them at the last minute and within an hour, they have someone available.They're very personable and very accommodating. I would definetely use them again.

Our Mom has needed 24/7 live-in care since she fell and broke her hip at the age 0f 89. We used a different care provider company for the first year and a half. Our experience included high turnover of care givers. The good ones left. and the closure of one franchise and our automatic assignment to a different franchise. We are so happy that our Mom's care manager suggested changing to AHC. Allen and his office staff are so responsive. Most important, our care manager and Allen have worked diligently to quickly identify excellent matches - care givers to our Mom. And they clearly enjoy our Mom as much as she enjoys them. They are truly caring and careful and provide only the best for our Mom. And they have stayed so Mom is no longer confused by new people in her home.

They're very professional. The lady that I have working with me now is both kind and competent. She's not lacking at all in personal interest but she's also aware. She doesn't walk in the door and look at me like I'm suppose to tell her everything. She looks around and picks up on things. She's very bright and right on the ball. I really appreciate that.

I just wanted to say "Thank You" to Allen and Sally and our caregiver Diana for all your support and loving care provided to my dad last winter. As a RN, case manager, who was working full-time and caring for dad at my home in his last months, I was very particular about who I wanted to care for dad when I had to leave the house. The respite care provided was caring, confident and made me feel very secure. I am grateful that I met Allen at a seminar and that he and his staff could meet my needs. I would highly recommend this agency for any family or caregiver needing assistance in the home.

Assistance Home Care continually went above and beyond to minister to every conceivable need possible. Their team anticipated our family's needs and proceeded to assist and problem solve each step of the way. The care-giving team was not only experienced in caring for our loved one but always demonstrated the highest level of respect when interacting, helping our loved one maintain his dignity through very difficult circumstances. Each member of the team from the owner of the company to the office staff/coordinators to the care-giver in the home continually provided detail oriented, personal attention in every aspect of our loved one's care. Our family will be always be grateful to the loving care provided by Assistance Home Care. They truly helped us carry our load leaving more time to simply "be" with our loved one in his final days.

I can't say enough good things about Assistance Home Care! From the beginning, they stepped right in and provided such excellent service...it is difficult being out of state and trying to manage my father's care, but since using Assistance Home Care, all of my concerns have been greatly relieved. They have filled a very important role in my life and my father's life and we are very grateful. Everything runs very smoothly with the arrangements we have made with them and probably most importantly, my father's spirits have improved and he looks so forward to his care giver coming. I highly recommend this organization to anyone searching for quality, caring, excellent service.

Assistance Home Care has been caring for my dad for almost 1 year. I would recommend this company because of the compassion, dedication and integrity that the owners, Allen and Sally, demonstrate. They hire friendly, honest people like Chrissy and Heather. They make it a priority to find caregivers who are compatible with my dad's personality and needs. With any home care situation there are unexpected circumstances. When issues were brought to Allen's attention, he and and his team handled them immediately and professionally. They put my dad and my family first. On behalf of my family, thank you to Assistance Home Care for your personalized attention as you continue to accommodate our ever-changing needs.

I can't say enough wonderful things about the people and service provided by Assistance Home Care. They provide exceptional service putting the individual client and familiy first.

My mother had fallen several times in the previous month and the last spill was bad enough to teke to the ER. Along with the doctor we decided against her will that she needed help, Assisted living is what she required, but the facility we wanted did not have an opening. So until thenwe needed some help, an Assisted Living was the bridge we needed. My mother fought us on this. She felt she was fine. About a month past and a room opened. Now she does not want to go to the home, she is very happy with Assistane Home Care and wants to stay in her condo. While this is not an option, it worked out better than we could have hope for. I would strongly recommend them and will tell friends who are in the same situation about Assisatnce Home Care.

I am so very pleased with Assistance Home Care and their relationship to my elderly (95 yr young) cousin. My cousin has the perfect match for his needs. Margie is warm, caring, always ready to meet John's every need. She has great insight into what is needed. I never worry when I know that Assistance Home Care and Margie are on the job. I am impressed to the individual attention that is given by Assistance Home Care to find the right match for their clients. If a replacement is needed do to illness or emergencies, Chrissy from Assistance Home Care is very sure to get a person who 'gel' with my cousin. I feel blessed that we have found this wonderful agency and their very caring staff. I would highly recommend them to any family who is in need of high quality care for their loved one.

When Moving Isn't An Option... Assistance Home Care is committed to honoring one's wishes to stay at home and enrich the journey of aging with compassion, dignity, and respect.

Established in 2011, Assistance Home Care was founded by Allen & Sally Serfas, who started their home care journey in honor of Sally's mother whom she lost to Alzheimer's disease.

Assistance Home Care has grown to serve two major areas in Greater St. Louis, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois. Our team prides itself in its ability to provide customized and specialized care for seniors and elderly needing personal care assistance or who are struggling with the challenges they face with age-related disease or conditions such as Dementia, Alzheimer's disease, Movement Disorders, Parkinson's disease, MS, ALS, stroke, and hospice & palliative support care at home.

Our Care Professionals are committed to education to better serve others and themselves by fulfilling 12 hours of continued education each year.
