A few words from some of our clients…..
It has been since November that Senior Helpers has been working with my Mom, Lila, and myself. I live in Denver, so for starters, it has been of utmost importance to have a competent and trust worthy agency helping out. Senior Helpers has gone way beyond the call of duty to make sure that my Mom has received the best care and great people. I must stress that my Mom has been difficult beyond belief, so I know she has to be one of the most challenging clients they have encountered. Obviously, I am one of the best references, because they know that I know what has been involved in staffing her 24/7. I am so thankful that their patience and concern for my Mom's well being has been ever present. On more than one occasion, I know Senior Helpers has made special exceptions.
Jonathan has even brought my Mom home from the Hospital personally and Cody has come to train numerous care givers in my Mom's extremely specific and particular needs. They have kept me up to date, and informed on so many levels, and continue to follow through every time. You will be in good hands with Senior Helpers.

We love Senior Helpers! Senior Helpers came to our rescue when we needed reliable care for my mom who wanted to remain independent. Not only did they have a variety of caregivers to select from, but Jonathan has an uncanny ability to understand and determine the level of care my mother needed. He is well educated in the medical as well as the social and emotional aspects of Alzheimer’s and recommended several resources and techniques that helped my mom and her family maintain her independence. Without Jonathan's professional judgment, we would be lost! They are a hidden treasure.

Senior Helpers was very helpful this past year when both my parents, Parkinson's patients, needed full time help. We were generally very pleased with the helpers, and if an issue arose, Jon and Cody were there immediately to remedy the situation. They are very flexible and responsible, and hire warm and caring people.
I wanted to take a minute to tell you how delighted I am to be working with Senior Helpers and Kari Martin, who is assisting my father as he transitions from a nursing home back to his home. Senior Helpers has been an amazing support to me and my father. When deciding which company to recruit, the decision was made very easy because Kari was so incredibly responsive and helpful from day one. I recall spending an hour on the phone with her for our initial conversation. She was so kind toward him, and understanding. Then, on Sunday, her day off, she was right there when my dad arrived back home for the first time since February. She was so encouraging to him, and helpful, and assisted our "senior helper," in getting my dad settled. Thank you for making this transition go as smoothly as it possibly could.
-Thank you, Louanne
A client of ours has a very particular need and he enlisted our help. Tom has Cerebral Palsy, he lives at a semi-independent community home where there is care available to him should he need it. Tom utilizes a motorized scooter to get around. His disease has made it almost impossible for him to walk and somewhat difficult to communicate. However, Tom hasn’t lost his desire to enjoy life. He has enlisted us to accompany him (two separate times) to Disney World! He couldn’t possibly have made the trip alone, so we provided Tom with a “senior helper” to accompany him. Our caregiver flew down to Florida with Tom, stayed with him at his hotel, and accompanied him to all the wonderful rides and attractions that Disney World has to offer. This is a dream of Tom’s and we remain absolutely thrilled that we have been able to help make it a reality!

Senior Helpers was a tremendous resource to me when my husband was in the final stages of small cell lung cancer. Their caring and compassion was wonderful. They responded immediately to any changes needed in scheduling and always insured that Richard had the very best of care in my absence. The caregiver was with all our family in the last hours of Richard's life, helping to make important phone calls and providing comfort to family members. I will be forever grateful to Jon, Cody and the entire Senior Helper Team.
Senior Helpers helped my friend when she was dying of cancer. She was a difficult client but they always managed to find someone "better" for her. When I broke my leg this year, and I needed help around the house, I didn't hesitate to use them again. I have wonderful help during a time when I went from being completely independent to needing someone with me even for simple tasks such as taking a shower. They are 100% dependable, flexible and very accommodating. I highly recommend them.
Senior Helpers was able to provide care resources incredibly fast. They provided my family with around the clock caregivers for both the home as well as the hospital. During very complicated times, Jonathan and the rest of the Senior Helpers staff were understanding and eager to help provide the support my family required.
Senior Helpers came to us thru a local Physician. My Mother was diagnosed with cancer, and Senior Helpers was there with us every step of the way. Their ability to give her a quality of life to the very end was amazing. It was like they became part of our family. They are 100% dependable and I highly recommend Senior Helpers.
EXTREMELY RELIABLE. My husband has dementia and requires a caregiver whenever I am not at home. I am a small business owner who must be responsive to my clients, sometimes at unusual hours. Senior Helpers is remarkable in the ability to respond quickly and on short notice. When long term planning is required, I know that we will be covered. The entire staff is capable, sincere, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, caring and friendly. Senior Helpers anticipate needs, and provide the kind of attention to detail that gives me great confidence in their work.

“I'll be more than happy to write a letter or anything. You helped me so much I can never thank you enough. Especially for your personal attention!”
-From Carolyn Sakolsky when asked if she would write a review for us on Google!
Extremely reliable! I live far from my parents who are both weak and unsteady. I needed to know someone would be there with them 24/7. Senior Helpers made certain there was never a gap in care...our providers did everything for them from escorting them to drs appts, grocery shopping, light housekeeping and meal prep. It was very comforting to know that we could call Jonathan at any time and he was responsive and sensitive to all issues.

We asked Senior Helpers to find very qualified and sensitive caregivers for our 100 year old mother, with only 96 hours notice. Quite frankly, we thought we were asking for too much at the time. But Senior Helpers came through, even though it required extra time and effort to fulfill our needs. Our assignment did not last many weeks, since we decided to move Mom out of the Chicago area to be closer to us. But be assured we would call on Senior Helpers again if we ever needed caregiving assistance in the Chicago area.
Last year when my wife was dying I needed someone to help take care of me and our home while I was taking care of my wife, Seniors Helpers was the ideal answer. They were sensitive and efficient, needing little direction. After my wife died Senior Helpers, coming once a week, is a perfect fit for my needs.
Senior Helpers in Chicago has been an absolute godsend. For the last year, Jon Wishnick has sent me truly wonderful caretakers for my 92 year old mother, who broke her hip and is living with me. Because of their reliability and love for my mother, I have been able to continue to work during the day and go on necessary short business trips. I am amazed at the quality of the staff he has sent (to date, a former nurse and a former teacher). We have been blessed. And I know that at every turn ahead, Senior Helpers will be there with me. I strongly recommend this organization - and thank them for all they have done for my family.
