Sahara Homecare Opens New Location in Mount Prospect

Sahara Homecare has officially opened its tenth location in Mount Prospect to better serve the senior citizen community residing in Chicagoland's Northwest suburbs.

A ribbon cutting ceremony and inauguration was recently held at the facility located at 1717 West Golf Road.

In addition to the opening of the 10th location, Sahara is also approaching its 10th anniversary in the coming months.

"I'm very thankful to the Lord that He has blessed us with our 10th location and upcoming 10 years," said President Armaghan Rana in a statement.

Sahara Homecare's Community Care Program (CCP), which receives funding through the Illinois Department on Aging, gives extra assistance to the elderly free of cost if they meet certain qualifications. Homecare providers assist clients with everyday tasks that can become difficult due to old age and deteriorating health. Services include laundry, light housekeeping, meal preparation, grocery shopping, as well as help with feeding, grooming, bathing and dressing among others.

To qualify, potential clients must:

- Be 60 years or older

- Be a U.S. Citizen or legal alien

- Be a resident of Illinois

- Have non-exempt asset value of less than $17,500

- Have an assessed need for care

Sahara is always hiring caregivers in all locations. Starting wage is $12/hour and caregivers are eligible to receive health benefits if working at least 20 hours per week. The Mount Prospect location is expected to be in operation by December 1.
