About Us

We are privately owned and intend to remain so. From the beginning in 1982, the founder, a registered nurse, made the decision to focus on her clients, care providers and creating new client services. Homeward Bound has no other agenda but to provide our clients with the safe, quality care they need and deserve.

Not only is Homeward Bound an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau, but the Bureau has also given us an A+ ranking – the highest level of credibility any business can achieve! We are also a proud member of the Private Duty Home Care Association which keeps us continuously updated on our industry’s news and current affairs. We know it benefits our clients and caregivers to remain involved in all aspects of the home care industry.

Did you know… Homeward Bound's quality care and reputable service is listed by the Les Turner ALS Foundation as the number one referral choice for private agencies that supply caregivers? We also receive referrals from hospice organizations, nursing homes, senior centers, doctor’s offices and hospitals all across Illinois! This honor would not be possible without Homeward Bound’s strong management and history of excellent home nursing services. Our trusted reputation has also led social workers, doctors and nurses to choose Homeward Bound for their loved ones as well as their patients. After experiencing our caregivers working with their clients, health professionals know firsthand they can trust us with their loved ones. We would be happy to provide you with a list of current references.

To provide the best care possible, we encourage clients to hold interviews at their home, hospital, facility or our office so we can assess the level of care needed. We also consult with your doctors, social workers and facility nursing staff for any specialized instructions regarding your care. If there is not enough time for interviews or consultations, which is often the case, we respond quickly and strive to provide the right caregiver every time!Our client & caregiver enjoying birthday cake
