When a loved one needs assistance, the entire family may be sad and struggling. “My father and my mother-in-law were clients of ours. We understand how difficult things can get,” said Bob Tucker, a qualified dementia care provider (QDCP) and co-owner of Northbrook-based Senior Helpers serving the north and northwest suburbs to the Wisconsin border.
“So, we created a series of programs and support services to help our client families manage these difficult times. Of course, we can provide caring, professional in-home caregivers for one hour each week to around the clock care...but, we offer so much more to help families navigate through tough situations.”
Here are some of the services that are offered:
Educational Family, Business Presentations & One-on-One Discussions and Recommendations:
Senior Helpers is available to provide insight on a wide variety of senior care topics-at no cost to you. From Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy Body and other forms of dementia, to fall risk situations, bathing and toileting challenges, issues related to social isolation, anger confusion and much more. They can also fill you in on all of the ways to pay for these services, what Medicare will pay for, and how to know when your loved one needs help.
Daily Logs Wherever You Are:
Here is an inside look, day-by-day of what your loved ones are doing. This information can be forwarded to you in a timely manner.

“We have cognitive games and activities that your loved ones will enjoy,” said Abbie Tucker, senior advocate and client services director, certified senior advisor (CSA) and a qualified dementia care provider (QDCP). “In addition, our office maintains a wide assortment of books, DVDs, magazines and articles on senior care. Everything is available at no charge to any family or professional healthcare provider. We also have medical equipment resources so you know where to go for any type of equipment.”
