Our Story

Western Illinois Home Health Care is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of the individual, the

community and our employees through professional health care, communication, and education.

Ron and Barb Byers founded Western Illinois Home Health Care in 1981. At that time, there was no home care available in their rural community. They proudly opened their first office in Monmouth, Illinois in July of 1981.


Western Illinois Home Health Care provides third party reimbursed skilled services (Medicare, Veteran's Administration, Private Insurance Companies, Medicaid) to people in their home setting. The Byers felt the need, early on, to expand and offer additional services that may be needed to help people remain in their homes. A sister agency, Western Illinois Managed Home Services, was established in Galesburg, Illinois to provide care to clients in all age groups and offer expanded hours of service with up to 24-hour coverage in a home if needed.


Since opening in 1981, Western Illinois Home Health Care and Western Illinois Managed Home Services have expanded to four offices.  In addition, Ron and Barb’s two daughters and their husbands, Jen & Jeff Podhajsky and Amanda & Joel Newman, have joined the agencies to help with day-to-day operations within the agencies.  


For over 35 years, the Byers family has been committed to their staff and to the community they serve.  Through the many changes in health care over the years, the agencies have remained family-owned and locally-operated.  

The vision of Western Illinois Home Health Care is to be the unparalleled leader in responsive, efficient

home health care in west central Illinois. We support this vision through collaborative planning

and application of resources and services. We support the individual, the community and

our employees so that they may thrive in a changing healthcare environment.
