Tom Merlin says: “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 client’s 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.”
