"A friend recommended that I contact Home Instead Senior Care. That call turned out to be the best thing I could have done.... Kristina Turk came out to assess my parent’s needs. Kristina was just wonderful. She was informative and genuinely concerned about finding the 'right' person for my folks. She helped me to understand the process and made me feel confident that I had made the right choice.... I was impressed that Kristina brought the caregiver on the first day to introduce them. This helped to ease the transition of having a stranger move into my parent’s home.... the caregiver was a godsend. She took care of my parents with kindness and compassion and did absolutely 'everything' for them. I had complete peace of mind that my parents were being taken care of in the same manner that I would take care of them…no small task.... I would highly recommend Home Instead Senior Care to anyone in need of the services of a caregiver. And, if I ever require this type of service again, my first call will be to Home Instead. Thank you so much for all you did for my parents and for me."
-Joyce K. Manfre, Norridge, IL
"... I want to thank you for the care that all of the caregivers at Home Instead provided to Roy. From your administration in the office to the care in his apartment, everything was first rate. I can't imagine how we would've allowed Roy to fulfill his wish of remaining at home (in Evanston) without your care. Special thanks to Sharon, Verona, and Lilly...I can attest to his feelings for them. Well done and thanks again."

“I cannot tell you how nice it felt to have one person to call to handle any of our needs. Each one of them has done a great job in providing companionship for my mother. I have called many times and always felt that the people at the Home Instead office knew my mother and had her well being in mind. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants to help their aging parent remain in the home. Special thanks to Gina who lent an ear so many times and also to Vilma who was the very best caregiver for my mother. Vilma really cares about the people she is helping and takes charge of the situation and gets the job done.”

“Zahava, thanks for all you have done over the past six months. I feel that you and your agency have gone above and beyond the call of duty in assisting my mother with all schedules and changes that have occurred. The ladies that assisted my mother have given me peace of mind while living so far from Chicago. You have in a way, personally taken care of the physical and emotional well being of my mother when I was unable to. Words can never thank you enough.”
Jay Fick, Charlotte NC
“We are grateful beyond words for the care you arranged for my mother. Maria has been more than any of us could have hoped for, and she has been vital in keeping my mother from going totally downhill.

"I am writing to express my appreciation and to commend Zahava on helping us with the care of my sister Sheila R. From the very first contact Zahava has gone above and beyond to assist us in finding someone to help Sheila. Even when I called at almost the last minute or changed the time schedules, Zahava never complained, and was always courteous, professional, and effective. She always returns my calls and has always accommodated our requests even though I know at times it was not easy. Zahava, and everyone at Home Instead, has made a most difficult situation a little better."
Esther Mazur, of Fair Lawn NJ
"Agnes seems absolutely wonderful. Her caring demeanor is perfect for Mom, and she can give Dad a run for his money with his sometimes off-color humor. Mom seemed so happy to have Agnes around telling her how much she loves her, and a weight seemed to be lifted from Dad. I'm so glad everything is working out. We have only had great feedback from Ziggy, Sally and Agnes on how things stand. How wonderful and amazing is it that this is even happening! One of our blessings to be thankful for this year is how you stepped in and found Agnes for Ziggy and Sally and gave them a new life! Priceless..."
Lori & Mike Wallach, Cindy & Jim Habel, Chicago IL
"Back in September we were under the gun to set up care for him and I felt lucky to know Jill through my neighbor O.H. Talking to Biju was so reassuring. He was professional and kind. Thank you for your flexibility. It gave me a little peace of mind during a trying time, and warmth – to know that its not just strictly business for you."
Frannie Benbow, Skokie IL
“Dear Gina: Please express our family’s thanks to everyone involved in the care of our mom. People were always caring and attentive, whenever we called.

With deepest gratitude…”
Brenda Wolf & Sandy Wall, Chicago IL
“Gina, Thank you for the holiday card—you look just as I imagined—and that NEVER happens! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for being so caring and supportive of me and my family. You are always so solutions-oriented, take the time to really listen to the “why” behind a request, put up with all the complicated nuances of a family doing its best to help our Dad. You obviously care a great deal and it shows. I hope I have a chance to meet you and thank you in person one day.”

“I wanted to let you know what wonderful & caring employees you have in Antanita & Carolyn. Aunt Ginny loved having their care and companionship which make her final years so much more enjoyable. Ginny always prided herself on being independent, but with age & deteriorating sight, she relied more & more on those two great associates of yours. I & my family would like to thank you for the years of wonderful care & concern you showed my Aunt.”
James Hornbrook, Park Ridge IL
