I had the occasion to use Assisting Hands twice in the last month. They're professional, reliable, and very easy to use. In addition, they are more cost effective than using a taxi for transportation not even considering waiting time spent at a doctor's office. You can't go wrong using Assisting Hands!
Our family has had various questions about the best way to care for my mother-in-law and Assisting Hands has been wonderful in answering these questions and helping us in these difficult times. The caregivers from Assisting Hands who have provided care for my mother-in-law, April and Celeste, have been attentive and skilled, and most of all kind. We are very appreciative for everyone's help.
I called and talked with Marissa. She was very helpful and pointed me to an organization where the help I was looking for might be covered through our medical benefits. Such integrity and helpfulness. I was also impressed with her background, the background of the owners, and their screening process. Assisting Hands Home Care of Naperville will always be my first call when I need services they provide.
I have referred several of our patients to Assisting Hands and all have been very pleased with the competent workers they have received. They do a great job of finding the right person to care for your loved ones and go the extra mile to make sure everything is just right. I highly recommend this wonderful establishment.

I am thrilled to call Assisting Hands friends and partners. I have had the opportunity to refer several of my clients/families to them and the feed back has been very positive. They do a great job.
Our experience with Assisting Hands in Naperville in regards to my husband's over 100 year grandmother has been a wonderful experience. Grandma has had a caregiver coming in for approximately six hours per week over the last couple years. The caregiver, Rosie, has been a sheer blessing to Grandma. She does Grandma's laundry, provides companionship, plays cards with hers, has taken her out on errands, etc. Rosie goes out of her way to make Grandma feel special.....makes her ice cream shakes in conjunction with her protein shakes, rubs her legs and feet, engages her in conversation, brings her things to read, etc. She shows a genuine interest in Grandma that shines through in all that she does. Rosie is a burst of energy and a positive force in Grandma's life. What a wonderful match especially for a Grandma who didn't want a caregiver .... what she has found is a friend. Thank you Assisting Hands!
Assisting Hands is quality home care. Very caring and professional. I have never been disappointed with the care they have provided for my husband. I recommend them highly.
We remember the good care our dad had from the staff at Assisting Hands, and are thankful for the time we had with him. We also thank you for the kindness to our family.
Assisting Hands staff served me for 7 weeks of recovery from a fall. They were knowledgeable and experienced in the help I needed. Their suggestions made life easier for me, They acted as cheer leaders. Even in the worst weather, they arrived. Barbara used her advanced training to coach me in helpful exercises. A helper from eastern Europe background whose name starts with Lit.....was a wise, patient coach in making me confident about taking a shower alone.
All of the caregivers have been nice and we have especially enjoyed Eileen who had been here in the past. The staff is responsive and professional. You have given me peace of mind knowing someone is with my mom. Thank you!
Thank you for giving us the security to know that mom would reliably have a caregiver show up each day. Furthermore, we were always satisfied with the quality of caregivers provided.
Emma really had a way with my mom who was pretty resistant to having a stranger stay with her. My mom really relied on her. Emma took charge and took excellent care of our mom.
Natalie is capable and organized and really takes pride in her work.
Sarah was so helpful. She was also very sweet and easy to get to know. I have told all of my friends about Assisting Hands.
My mom was positive about your staff staying with her. I want to thank Doris who stayed and helped me pack up my mom’s things. She was so helpful and took a lot of stress off of me. Your coordinator went above and beyond to help me when I called at 5:30pm on a Friday. She was so understanding and really came through for me. I really appreciate all her efforts.
My caregiver is a warm, caring person with a sense of humor. She is a self starter, efficient and industrious.
I was very happy with the service provided by Shannon. She was very helpful to me and my twin girls that are only 6 weeks old. Shannon was very comfortable handling my young babies and assisted with feedings and diaper changes. Anyone with twins needs Assisting Hands!
I really enjoy having my caregiver around. She helps me with everything I need. I don’t know what I would do with out her.
Brian has been great and so have you– thanks for all your help! My dad is moving but we will definitely keep Brian in mind if any other needs come up in the interim! Thanks again for all your assistance!
