Founded four years ago, an in-home care company located in the Oak Park Arts District has enjoyed steady growth while focusing on its four pillars: accountability, respect, integrity and service.
The agency places such a premium on those qualities that the company’s name is an acrostic of those traits: ARIS at home. The dedication to providing compassionate, quality in-home care is reaping results, with a 30 percent annual growth in clients that prompted the company recently to move into a space roughly double its original outpost at 329 Harrison St.
“In our industry, reputation is so vitally important to sustained growth and success,” said company founder Travis Slaby. “We are grateful to the families and individuals who have entrusted us to provide care in their time of need, as well as the team of in-home care professionals who have been such outstanding ambassadors of the ARIS at home name.”
The move, which officially occurred on January 1st, was about as short as they come: ARIS at home shifted its operations one door to the east. The enterprise now occupies the 1,000-square-foot space at 327 Harrison St. that had been home to a dry cleaners for at least 30 years.
The business is in the heart of the Oak Park Arts District, which spans the nine blocks along Harrison Street that are west of Austin Boulevard along Oak Park’s eastern border with Chicago.
The move enables ARIS at home to recruit many more compassionate caregivers to serve its growing client base, to expand its workshop-training capabilities, and to provide a venue for educational presentations from experts in other industries, said Slaby.
ARIS at home’s services range from assistance with activities of daily living for seniors to respite care for people of all ages who have family caregivers in need periodic breaks in order to tend to their own needs.
Its array of services include assistance with personal care (bathing, grooming, dressing, and medication reminders); companion care (such as talking, listening, playing games, routine housekeeping, and running errands); respite care (support for caregivers who need a break); and memory care (attending to the special needs of those with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other memory-loss issues.).
Based in Oak Park and operating throughout Chicagoland, ARIS at home is a family-owned provider of compassionate, quality in-home care. ARIS stands for Accountability, Respect, Integrity and Service. Online, visit www.arisathome.com, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone: 708-934-4676.
