My mother has been happier here than I ever could have imagined. It feels like a warm family more than an elder care facility. Staff all know her by name and treat her with great care. I don't know anyone who is as happy with parents' elder care as we are.

This facility treats its residents with dignity & respect, providing them a heimisch environment without religious pressure, in a well kept, up-to-date friendly facility, providing wonderful programs, helpful experienced staff & administration, healthy meals, welcoming family & friends, & making residence a memorable & warm memory.Having been in many senior citizen facilities professionally in the 6 County area of Chicago over 11+ years, I can say that The SelfHelp Home was one of the 5 best I have visited.

My mom spent her final 11 years at the Selfhelp Home. We were so happy for her to be in this enriched environment with caring staff, truly home-cooked meals (including home baked challah on Friday evenings), and amazing musical performances by award-winning musicians from around the globe.

If someone you know is looking for a senior residence, take a look at The Selfhelp Home. It is truly one of a kind.

One of the best senior living communities. Everyone at Selfhelp cares deeply for the residents. Quality of life is high, great cultural programming, community events and food. They go the extra mile and people who volunteer here actually move in later in life.

Oh yes, I highly recommend ShelfHelp Home especially for rehab. I credit my time there with my final recovery from a very horrendous postoperative experience. The the care, physical and occupational therapy, comfort, support, and food was superb! One experience I had was the occupational therapist knew that I paint, and she arranged part of one therapy session so that the therapy included me painting! I thought that was terrific! The facility is super clean with no odors and constant cleaning, many caregivers, and the support and care could not have been better! I really did not want to leave there! I was impressed with the arrangements and preparations made to send me home, and the social workers follow-up once I was at home. I also found that having a private room was very much to my liking as the room was huge with a huge private bathroom, the dining room was like being in a hotel, and there were many activities to participate in!

As an employee, this is where my friends and family are when they need care.
Not only does Selfhelp only hire the best nurses, doctors and caregivers with years of experience in healthcare..... they are NICE and genuinely caring people. I know I'm putting people in the best hands.

I work at the Selfhelp Home. From the moment I walked through the front doors, I could feel what makes this place so special. Lots of love and life here. And if your loved one is in need, you could not find a better place. They will be well taken care of by an incredible, committed staff who genuinely care about, respect and treasure older adults.
