Jonathan Wishnick, Owner
Jonathan opened Senior Helpers of Chicago and Senior Helpers of Wilmette-Evanston so people who need assistance would get well trained, well managed, and smart assistants. Opening Senior Helpers was in many senses a tribute to his mother. Jonathan’s mother, Maxine, had multiple health issues (Heart Attacks, Stroke, Emphysema, and the loss of movement of her left shoulder due to an auto accident), yet she led a very full life. At many times over the last 15 years of her life she needed assistance; eventually Jonathan decided to open Senior Helpers. Jonathan makes sure that we treat every client with the same respect and care as Maxine would have expected and deserved.
