Being a caregiver for a family member or loved one is often a job that requires a delicate balance between a career, a personal family life, and trips back and forth between homes almost every day. Many family members become overwhelmed with the daunting task of helping a parent or grandparent remain independent in their own home, sometimes losing their own home by taking on this huge responsibility.

Doug Boyce is the owner and area director for Lake, Cook, and McHenry counties in IL. He graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign, IL with a Business Degree and moved to the northern suburbs a couple of years later. After working over 25 years as a manager in one of the nation’s largest insurance companies, Doug, like many others, experienced his own parents requiring help in their daily lives. First, his mother entered a rehabilitation facility and then on to a full-time care facility and then his father needed to get help at home. It was this experience that would lead to the career change that would define the next chapter of Doug’s life.
It didn’t take long to realize that there was a tremendous opportunity in Home Care to create something “special”. A way to provide a much higher level of care for those needing some help to remain independent in their own homes. In an effort to bring back the extraordinary quality of service that has seemed to disappear from many of today’s businesses, Doug jumped at the chance to bring ActiKare to our northern suburbs. “I want to serve my communities and their members by providing assistance to those individuals who wish to safely maintain their dignity and independence in their own homes. And I believe that we have answered that challenge.” Join our team today!
