Why Home Helpers

Why Home Helpers of Kankakee & Frankfort for In-Home Care?

Making decisions on providing care for a loved one can be overwhelming. How do you know what’s right for your family’s unique situation? Is in-home care the right solution? Or does your loved one need more?

Your Extended Family When Family Can’t Be There

At Home Helpers Home Care, we’re here to do exactly what our name says: help. We’re more than an in-home health care agency – we’re your extended family when family can’t be there.

From our initial free in-home consultation to compassionate, caring in-home health care services to medical monitoring, we provide exceptional support for you, your loved one, and your entire family.

We work with you to create a customized care plan that matches your family’s needs, taking time to understand your unique situation through a step-by-step process for the best quality of life for your loved one and peace of mind for you.


We meet with you at no obligation to get to know you and understand your family’s needs, answer your questions, and assess care needs.


Our free home environmental assessment identifies potential hazards and helps ensure the home is safe for your loved one to age in place.


We know it can be difficult to open your home to a stranger, so we match every client with the most compatible caregiver, and we personally introduce caregivers and clients. When your loved one is partnered with the right caregiver, they become members of an extended family that provides compassionate, attentive care and the best possible quality of life.


We work within your budget and partner with your long-term care insurance provider to ensure your family’s care services fit your financial requirements.

Call (815) 427-4238 today to schedule your free in-home care assessment.
