Description of Home Helpers
When your loved ones need care... Home Helpers Cares! Home Helpers of Northeastern Illinois was founded by Lisa and Tom Merlin and Joy Schaefer to provide a way of "Making Life Easier" for their clients and their loved ones. Our in-home caregivers will help with household support services, personal grooming, transportation and most importantly - companionship. Whether our clients need half-day respite shift, daily care and companionship or full-time live-in care, we have the staff to provide the level of service that is required.
Home Helpers of Northeastern Illinois is licensed as a Home Services Agency by the Illinois Department of Public Health as of September, 2008. We proudly serve our local communities by supporting of the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce, the Skokie Chamber of Commerce and the DBR Chamber of Commerce. Tom and Joy have both taken the course of study and passed the examination to become Certified Senior Advisors. We have also taken the "Best Friends Approach" train the trainer course offered by the Alzheimer's Association.
The experience of owning and managing Home Helpers of Northeastern Illinois has been a richly rewarding experience. We strive to relieve the stress that can come with making a decision about who is going to fill in when a family caregiver can no longer provide the service their loved one needs and deserves. Through our free in-home consultation we can evaluate the situation and match the clients requirements with a customized care plan. We have become the source of caregiving we wish we knew about when we needed help with aging parents. We hope we can spare our future clients the anguish of not knowing who to turn to when they need help. Home Helpers of Northeastern Illinois is just a phone call away from helping out at home, wherever our clients call home, be it an independent or assisted living facility or that bungalow they have owned for decades.
