Praise for The Selfhelp Home’s Commitment to Care!

My mother, Adele Shore Bernstein, was at The Selfhelp Home for five years, entering at the age of around 98 and living there for five years until she passed away at age 103. I have the highest regard and greatest appreciation for the attention, care and kindness she received from the wonderful staff at the home. They were all wonderful and those close to my mother are very grateful for the care she received at the home. She hardly had any complaints, even thought she was in bad shape and very low spirits (through no fault of the home). The home did its best to maintain her physical condition and boost her spirits.

My mother lived at The Selfhelp Home for eight years. She was a Holocaust survivor and lived in Florida. At age 89, my brother and I felt she shouldn’t be alone. My brother lives in Washington, DC and I live in Chicago. I had heard of SHH And thought she would be a good fit. Despite the difficult initial adjustment, she fits in great. The environment is warm and cultural, offering weekly concerts, book clubs, political discussions and an array of residents with fascinating histories and supportive families.

The staff has been there for many years which speaks to how well they are treated and at the same time they treat the residents with loving care! I would be grateful moving to SHH myself when the time comes!

My father, who is almost 90, had some ups and downs with his health prior to moving to Selfhelp. He has been in excellent health since moving to Selfhelp. I think that is because he eats three healthy meals a day in the dining room, he exercises in a class or in the fitness room, and the staff manages his medications. My dad often comments that all of the staff are “so nice” and how much he appreciates the great quality of care. He greatly enjoys the concerts, movies, social events, sense of community, and the friendships he has made. I’m glad I chose the Selfhelp Home for him, and I have peace of mind knowing how well taken care of he is of there.

I entered The Selfhelp Home after emergency surgery for a broken leg (Femur). I was told a rehab facility was required and I had a vague awareness of The Selfhelp Home. I called, was accommodated graciously and entered not knowing what to expect.  There in no way to analyze or describe all aspects of the experience at Selfhelp but the bottom line includes the descriptive term: “superb”. No facility could do better in terms of satisfying all aspects of care and personal accommodations. It is clear that the personnel and administration of the facility are directed to achieving the goal of satisfying the patients needs as its primary objective. They succeeded for me to continue to do so for all in need of their services.

My congratulations to whoever planned the Chanukah event. It was perfection, well thought out and planned, organized and I cannot praise you enough. For me to even pay attention and notice is one thing. But for me feeling compelled over a month later to tell you is just a small indication of how impressed I was. Thank you for a wonderful evening and the most impressive event I have ever attended in my 87 years.

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.

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!

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.
