Helping Seniors in the Northern Lake County area Since 2001

The Home Instead Senior Care family network located in Grayslake, Illinois (Northern Lake County) was developed with a passionate desire to be your trusted source in helping your family keep your aging mother, father, grandparents or friends in their home as they grow older.  To us, it's personal.

The office was opened in 2001 by two sisters, Denise Trinka and Cindy Madson.  Having dealt with the need for in-home care for their parents, ​both Cindy and Denise became aware of the necessary level of care and attention that aging adults requir​​e.  They both felt that together, they could make a difference in the quality of life for aging adults through the development of their Home Instead Senior Care franchise.

Because the home care services you, your loved one or friend needs must come from someone you trust locally, the Northern Lake County Home Instead Senior Care office is passionate about meeting the needs of the elderly in our community. We're not a giant corporation run from the top down - we're a community-based, friendly and responsive office right here in Grayslake.  We make it simple.

Today, many relationships are formed daily through CAREGivers who provide home care help to clients and their families who desire assistance with activities that used to be simple. Tasks like grabbing a can of soup from the top shelf, opening the mail, reading a book, folding laundry, tying shoelaces or scrapbooking family history are not as easy as they used to be for many seniors.

No matter where seniors live, in their home, in assisted living facilities or even nursing homes, Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing thousands of hours of senior home care services annually to the Northern Lake County area.

These senior home care services may include assistance with trips to the doctor, reminders to take the right medication at the right time, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, shopping and even Alzheimer's care. The result is c​ompanionship allowing seniors to feel safe and independent while they age in place in the home they've lived in for years.

And in those situations when a client has aging-related medical needs beyond our home care capabilities, we refer them to our close partners in the health care industry.​
