Giving Back to the Lockport Community
The top caregivers across the country who provide homecare, elder care, senior care, Dementia care, 24hour care, and other home care serves for seniors and people with disabilities are recognized by this national company.
“Caregiving is tough. It requires a special kind of empathy that not all people are lucky enough to possess,” said HCAOA CEO Vicki Hoak. “This award is just one way we can lift up our caregivers, who are a vital lifeline to the clients they serve at home. It is a pleasure to recognize those who go above and beyond with a song, a surprise outing, or a client’s favorite meal to ensure they are cared for."
Trina Glowienke -
"I was 50 and I did it in my 40's as a volunteer too neighborhood seniors and got paid some with residents at Bensenville Home Society and Castle Towers for apartments seniors associated with Franciscan Sisters. (My mom was living there at the time) So employed 16 years now. I worked for Abcore Health in Arlington for approximately 8 years. I was at Assisting Hands in Downers Grove about 2 1/2 years and also at Snug and Comfort Caregivers for 2 years. During this time I was recommended to Homewatch CareGivers with Denise Vaughn's company. I would say I've worked in caregiving since 1995. I've been in health care in general since 1980. Schooling 1979 - 1984 for respiratory therapy and did clinicals and also worked at two hospitals, Mercy Center and Good Samaritan. In the late 80's early 90's I worked in medical records at Elmhurst Clinic.
My caregiving is my retirement career and I hope to work another 10 years improving peoples lives to help them be independent and safe and cared for in their homes as a companion and personal caregiver.
Our symbol for friendship, trustworthiness, compassion, and dedication."
The top caregiver will be announced at the HCAOA Annual Leadership Conference this year at the Hilton Orlando, and will receive a cash award of $1,000.

Keeping our Seniors Safe
Police Commander John Arizzi gave a very informative talk this week at the Lockport area TRIAD meeting to the seniors about the epidemic of fraud and how to avoid it. The technology used to commit fraud now is very sophisticated and he gave several great examples of the most frequently used ones. The seniors were actively participating in the meeting by giving some of their stories on how someone tried to scam them in resent years. He stressed the importance of always reporting a suspected scam to the police department because sometimes they are able to get someone’s money back and, hopefully, catch these criminals. Kris Chrzan the Client Manager for Homewatch CareGivers was there handing our great snacks and answering any questions people had about Senior homecare.
