What Our Clients Say

““My wife and I were facing those life challenges that no one expects. Last spring Doris was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I thought I could handle her care on my own. After a few months, my own health started to go downhill and we decided to hire a caregiver. Tom and Joy came out to meet us and left us reassured that life would be easier with their help. After using their services for the past few months, I don't know how we would go on without their guidance and especially their caregivers. Instead of being a caregiver for my wife, I am again her husband. While life still has its ups and downs we have a wonderful support system with Home Helper of Northeastern Illinois. “”
