“I would highly recommend Sara D. as a caregiver…Sara is a hard worker and likes to keep busy. Once my personal needs were met, she would make my bed, clean the kitchen including washing dishes, do my laundry, go to the grocery store for ingredients for meal preparation, and tidy up the house. We often chatted about family or news and she was always quick to offer an encouraging word concerning my recovery. Sara is a competent and kind caregiver. She was always concerned for my welfare and responded positively to any request I made. Often she made helpful suggestions before I could even make a request. She caught onto my routine quickly and was always eager to please. I felt very comfortable with her, and my family was appreciative of her efforts too. She is an excellent cook and always made sure that I ate good healthy food to help my recovery. She served a variety of foods that were always delicious. I know that my quick recovery was, in part, thank to Sara’s good care.”
— Janet D., Lake Forest
“The caregivers were caring, helpful, and well-trained. Took exceptionally good care of the patient. Also were most helpful taking care of the home, doing any food preparation that was requested, and often cared for the home without being asked. They were always prompt, responsible, dependable, and were with us when needed.” [Particularly Valued:] “The willingness of caregivers to take on extra work. They were usually two steps ahead in what needed to be done.”
— Howard L., Highland Park
“[The services] are excellent. All the caregivers who have helped Bob have been both caring and professional, and engaged him readily from the first day he went home from the Whitehall.

— Carol M., daughter-in-law of client Bob S., Glencoe

“[Particularly Valued:] The speed with which Margalit was able to provide us with…an exceptional caregiver – quality of service is super! How fortunate we were to have Victor K. Margalit chose so wisely! He was wonderful! Outstanding! We hardly have words to describe his care. He made sure that I did some exercise and of course his being a nursing student was so reassuring. He has a warm, friendly manner, is knowledgeable – our dog Pete liked him too! We’d never needed a caregiver before, but if we did, again, we’d ask for Victor in a heartbeat…We cannot forget this remarkable man.”
