Living in your own home can be the most wonderful thing in the world.  It's where you're most comfortable, where you belong.  But sometimes it can get overwhelming and you'd like someone to help out.  What better solution than to call us!  Whether it is long or short term, we offer quality live-in companion care as well as care by the hour.

Several years ago, my dear mother fell and broke her hip.  She went to rehab, but then could not return to her assisted living facility in Chicago.  She was transferred to the nursing home wing of her facility.  She was very unhappy there, so I determined then that I would move her into my home in Rockford.  I left the workforce and decided to care for her 24/7.  I had no idea what to do or who could help me.  I found a hospice and a home care company and decided to give them a try.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made.  In fact, the caregiver that helped me take care of my mother became one of my first employees!  I know what it feels like to be the adult child of an elderly parent that needs help.  I have worked for two home care companies and now I own Best Home Care of Northern Illinois, Inc. I promise to provide you & your family with the very best care at the very best price.

What do others say about us?

Meet our Caregivers

Our caregivers, or Personal Care Aides, are screened, insured, fingerprinted and trained.  They must pass strict background checks, including criminal background checks.  We comply with the regulations set by the Illinois Department of Public Health and provide our caregivers with the ongoing education required.  The caregivers are our employees, so we take care of all taxes, general liability insurance,  and Worker's Compensation insurance.   

It is our goal to match the right caregiver with the client, and then keep that caregiver with the client.  Keeping things consistent has proven to be what puts us ahead of our competitors.
