Jeffrey Jaunich

Owner / Director of Client Care

Jeffrey had a successful career for 25+ years in the financial service industry serving large corporate financial institutions. As part of his transition out of corporate life and to better serve the community and the aging population, a new calling was established after his father was placed in a memory care facility close to five years ago. Seeing the struggles that his large family of sibling went through to finally come to that ultimate decision left him feeling that more could have been done to make that transition less disruptive for all involved in the process. Finding Always Best Care Chicagoland and the services they currently provide would have helped that transition especially for the family members involved with care giving support for his father. Jeffrey has lived in Elmhurst for 25 years along with his wife where they proudly are raising two boys.
