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.
