I would like to thank my mother’s nurse Jeanne for her excellent care and compassion. I cannot say enough about Jeanne – she made my mother’s last few months come with peace. I would also like to thank Kathleen (Social Worker) and Molly (CNA) for their care. Her loving daughter. -Cheryl
In loving memory of Ted C.
My dad was at JourneyCare from March 14 and passed away on March 21. My mom, husband and myself are so appreciative of how kind, thoughtful, compassionate and respectful the staff was when administering care to my dad and responding positively to our requests and wishes. In particular, Nancyand Maria. They were exceptional. Thank you so very much.
In loving memory of Alberta S.
On behalf of my family, I want to sincerely thank JourneyCare for your compassionate and professional care of our mom. From the very first visit to making the decision to move mom into hospice to her very last day, she was treated with kindness, dignity and a dose of humor. You provided the needed support to our caregivers and our family to make mom’s final months comfortable and purposeful. Mom truly appreciated all the care and attention she received at her visits each week. She was the most giving selfless person, full of goodness and it was a joy to see her accept the care and grace from others. I’ve told our JourneyCare story to our friends and family because you all made mom’s final journey a beautiful experience for all of us. Her life ended much as it began; with love and grace. We are grateful. Sincere thanks, Barbara
In loving memory of Frieda E.
My mom Frieda and I had the privilege of getting to know the Sapphire Team because Frieda’s roommate was/is under their care. It was wonderful to be observers of their care, compassion, sense of humor and energy. When Frieda began to show signs of more dementia, increased congestive heart issues and overall weakening, I knew getting her enrolled in JourneyCare was the best thing to do for her new needs and conditions; and to be sure of her comfort and peace. What a blessing to be told we, too, would have the same team? Anytime I needed to ask a question, no matter how minor, Nancy or Theresa was there, or a nurse would be at the “Hotline”. More eyes and ears -and HEARTS on my precious Mom. THANK YOU! more than words can say!
In loving memory of Dorothy B.

In loving memory of Russell S.

In loving memory of Joseph C.
I wanted to say thank you to Jeannie from your organization who helped us through the final hours of my husband’s death. Not knowing what to expect, she guided us step by step as to what happens and suggested ways to keep him in a calm state and ease any pain he might have had. My family and I want her to know what a comfort she was throughout this difficult time. Sincerely, Maryann
In loving memory of Jane O.
We can’t thank you enough for our mom’s care once we switched to you. Each person we encountered was professional, kind, caring and responsive. Nurse Michelle helped our family make difficult choices, but always put mom as #1. Her recommendations and insights were spot on. CNA Brittney was comforting and caring and patient when bathing mom. Both cared so deeply. Thanks to all JourneyCare. Our family will be forever grateful.
In loving memory of David Joseph P.

In loving memory of Dorothy W.
My mother was the beneficiary of JourneyCare’s professional care and assistance while she lived at Sunrise of Schaumburg. My mother, who passed away on January 27, 2018, after several years of deteriorating physical health, was fortunate to have had such excellent care during this difficult time in her life. My sister and brothers, have all commented about the very professional care that mother received. While difficult for each of us to watch her deteriorate from the self-sufficient woman we knew… it was very reassuring to know that she was being taken care of by JourneyCare during her difficult last years. Please express our appreciation to those who provided services to our mother. They were wonderful! Sincerely, George
In loving memory of David B.

In Loving memory of Elsie R.
We don’t know how to thank you for everything! Thank you for making my life easier. Thank you to all the nurses who took care of mom. You always took the time with her and she liked the visits. There are so many people to thank… from the social workers to the lady who would give her massages and the “shower girl” who was persistent! Every time I would call JourneyCare, you were so helpful and concerned. Thank you for the phone calls and helping me through this all. To the chaplain that held her hand and prayed with her. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Kathryn and Jeanne the day Elsie passed away. You were there with my family, consoling and guiding us. Hugs to you all. – John, Debbie and Family.
In loving memory of Helen G.
Thanks for all you did in our family’s time of need. You made this rough time in our family’s life very easy. It is a shame people don’t realize how much your services are needed at a rough time. Keep up the great work. I will spread the word about you to people who can use your services.
