Our home care services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, so you know your loved one’s needs are always being met. We offer care when and where it is needed, whether it is at home, in a retirement community, assisted living, or skilled nursing facility.
We also help those recovering from surgery or injury, coping with a long-term illness, or managing an ongoing medical condition such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, or ALS. Whatever your family’s needs, Home Helpers can provide the care that makes the difference.
Owners, Christine and John Browning, decision to open Home Helpers of Barrington, was twofold. We were driven by our passion for providing quality care, as well as a concern for friends and family with aging parents. We saw the need for our services, as many of our friends and family were feeling the stress of juggling the demands of their personal and professional lives with the increasing needs of their parents or children.
Many people think their only option is assisted living. Not only is this costly, but it moves the parents out of the home in which they are comfortable. We felt Home Helpers was the perfect opportunity for us to apply the skills we have developed over the past 20+ years to help our community members continue to live independently in the comfort and security of their own home. With Home Helpers, we are there when you need us! When you contact Home Helpers, you can count on speaking with a caring individual who is happy to assist you with possible solutions to your issues and concerns.
Our Compassionate Caregivers
Our caregivers are the key to our success, so hiring the best employees is a top priority. We also pride ourselves in finding the best caregiver for your loved one, and we will do everything we can to ensure your loved one is satisfied with their caregiver. Many of our caregivers are licensed certified nursing assistants, registered nurses and licensed practical nurses. Our caregivers are compassionate individuals with loving hearts and have significant caregiving experience that possess a genuine desire to help people.
Each caregiver is carefully selected and must satisfy our rigorous employment criteria, which includes:
• A comprehensive interview process
• Previous employment verification
• Reference checks
• Extensive criminal background check
• Motor vehicle driving record check
• Pre-employment drug testing
All of our caregivers can legally work in the United States, speak English fluently and have their own car. They are our employees, and we take full responsibility for their day-to-day supervision. At any time, if you have questions or concern about your loved one’s caregiver and/or care plan, we are more than happy to work with you to adjust it to fit your needs.
