"Get~it~Done Gurus, I am so glad I found you when I really needed you. I appreciate everything you did for me. I'm sorry my physical condition [and needing more in-home care] wouldn't let me continue with your great service.

I would recommend you to anyone."

— Marion, Villa Park

 

"The Get~it~Done Gurus came to our rescue when my 92-year-old mother needed to move into an assisted-living apartment.

They planned and managed the move so there was minimal disruption and stress for Mom. They were probably racing around behind the scenes, yet they always maintained an air of calm around our family’s matriarch.

The ladies were extremely patient with her as she walked through years of memories. They unobtrusively donated or discarded items Mom couldn’t take with her.

The family was quite pleased with their management of this move. The Gurus made sure Mom was not only settled in, but also feeling at ease and comfortable in her new home. For example, they made sure to hang her pictures and mementoes just the way they had been arranged before.

I was impressed with how these women helped my mother get through a taxing transition.

This personal concierge company is now among the few exceptional service providers I have programmed in my phone."

— Frank, Glen Ellyn

Today’s seniors approach life with grace and gusto. Yet, everyone can use an extra pair of hands now and again.

The Gurus understand that family members who are assisting their elders can be strapped for time or hampered by distance and competing responsibilities.

We help seniors and their families by getting the groceries, running errands, brushing the dog, offering companionship, and more. No need to fret if what you need is not listed below. We do most anything as long as it's moral, ethical, and legal!

The Get~it~Done Gurus are fully insured and bonded for your peace of  mind. And, you'll receive a 10% discount on all services, if you're 65 or over. Call for your free consultation with the Gurus today!
