We have partnered with Naperville School District 203 to bring on summer
interns interested in health services. We are providing 12 hours of caregiving
training, including 6 hours of Dementia training and skill building. These
interns are working on various projects to improve the quality of life
and social engagement in senior's lives.
Seniors Today on NCTV17 most recent episode was "Health and Wellness
During Covid-19" and Dr. Phillip from DuPage Medical Group gave very
helpful advice on reducing Covid-19 risk and also protecting our mental health.

We have started a weekly social engagement program called "Coffee Klatch" in partnership with Naperville-Lisle Triad, Lisle Park District, Naperville Township, Homewatch CareGivers and Independence Village. It is a Zoom social group that meets each week at 11:00 am. The seniors are getting to know each other, look out for each other, offer each other suggestions, become friends. We are looking for more volunteers to run additional groups as we want to keep the groups under 8 seniors to keep everyone participating.
The first episode on Health and Wellness During Covid-19 aired June 16, 2020! What a great job Dr. Philip, Frank and Alan did to get such great information out. DMG should be so proud of this! Thank you to the NCTV17 team for making us shine!

The office and the team all have extremely kind, attentive, and organized people that are genuinely concerned about client needs. Homewatch CareGivers employs talented and loving caregivers that make the caregiver-client relationship an entirely new dimension.
Homewatch Caregivers have been great! Dennise and her staff have been wonderful to deal with and have helped get my dad additional care with not a lot of notice. All of their caregivers have been very good to deal with in a new situation for my folks. Each and every one of the caregivers has been polite, patient and very caring.
We are grateful for the chance to help our caregivers, our families and our community during this time. So humbled that folks wanted to hear about our story. If you or someone you know needs safety supplies, food, help with something or wants to help volunteer, please let us know. We are all in this together!
Congratulations to Julie Hoben and Haley Harbath on being Caregivers of The Month for May! We appreciate all you do for our clients and keep up the great job! So proud of you both! 💛🌻💛
Dennise and her team are true professionals who care about what they do! Having worked alongside HWCG for some time now, I can see why folks choose them time and again. It takes real passion to go above and beyond for those you serve and Dennise and her team have what it takes!

Thanks to Reza, the owner of Reza’s Auto Repair in Crest Hill!
Reza was driving home one day when he saw a line of cars 1 mile long near a church. He later found out the line was for the food pantry that typically serves about 40 families every other week. This location is 1 of 2 pantries that serve the Joliet area.
On this particular day, the pantry had over 400 families needing food! Unfortunately, they were only able to provide food to half of the people in line. So, Reza blasted a message on his personal and business FB pages to reach out to as many people as he could to help the church provide more for these families.
Today, he has accumulated 2,500 pounds of food donations and dropped it off on May 2nd.
If you or anyone you know would like to donate more this week, he is located at:
2386 Jorie Ct.
Crest Hill, IL 60403
They are open M-F from 8am-6pm
Homewatch CareGivers is so grateful for the work Ashley Rodriguez is doing for our Bolingbrook Community. Ashley and her family built and stocked a Micro Food Pantry outside of the Bolingbrook Fountaindale Library in April of 2019. With the support of the library, township and the community helping to donate, stock and organize the non-perishable items, this has become a vital part of filling some of the needs of the town. Whether its students coming to the library after school, to families facing unemployment, or to our homeless population, all are welcome to come and take items that they need. Over the past year, Ashley has been amazed at the generosity of the people of Bolingbrook to make a difference in someone’s life. This would not have happened without many hands and hearts, especially the employees at the library. They care so much for the students who fill the library after school each day. Thank you, Ashley, for seeing a need in her town and coming up with a creative way to reach out and help so many people.
NCTV17’s “Seniors Today”, hosted by our own Dennise Vaughn, is a show about helping seniors and those that love them, lead their very best lives! April’s topic is about:
Many Generations Under One Roof. We hope you enjoy the show!
I could not be more please with Homewatch. Everyone from administrators to caregivers are great. Very responsive to our needs. Literally a lifesaver!
Our team is so excited and grateful! Thank you so much to you and all the kiddos! It makes such a difference when people feel appreciated for all they are doing! You are the best! 💛

We had some serious concerns about our mother's residence. We were in the process of finding a new memory care community for her and we needed someone to be her companion. Someone who would talk to her, read to her and spend time with her during the day when we were not available to be with her. Homewatch provided exactly what we needed! The women who spent time with our mother were gentle and caring. They treated her with respect and dignity. They advocated for her and were adept at redirecting her when the need arose. Working with Janine and the women who provided companionship and care for our mother was a true pleasure. Our mother felt safe with these women. Homewatch was a great help during this time of transition. Our mother is happily settled into her new community now and it was a smooth transition, thanks to the excellent help we received from Homewatch. I highly recommend them.
A big thank you to Debbie Breihan, Senior Citizen Coordinator at the Lisle Park District!
While currently working from home instead of leading a multitude of programs at the Senior Center, she is now busy calling up to 200 seniors per week to check on them and inquire about their health and welfare. She also spreads cheer by writing uplifting chalk messages on theirs and neighbors’ driveways as a way to help people stay connected and feel brighter in these difficult days of social distancing. She is always ready to offer help and is full of ideas about making people’s lives better. www.lisleparkdistrict
We are so excited to have Julie Hoben back on our team as a caregiver! She originally worked with us in 2017 as a caregiver and office support. Julie comes to us with many years of experience in home healthcare. Welcome back Julie and thanks for thinking of our caregiver team with these colorful masks and appreciate Trisha Rempel donating them.
Congrats to our Caregivers of the month for April! Awesome job Elizabeth Musaazi and Eileen Orris! Keep up the great work with your clients!
To thank their incredible dedication and service,Homewatch CareGivers andOasis Senior Advisors provided lunch to Edward Hospital Care Coordination Group.
On April 1st, Paul Beach, Community Outreach Business Partner, Homewatch CareGivers delivered a Panera lunch to Edward Hospital for the Nurses and Social Workers of the Care Coordination Group.
We support these wonderful nurses, social workers and all care professionals who are truly on the front lines.
Amazing! They truly care about your family member and want the best for them. Very flexible and accommodating. There is never one ounce of worry when I know they are with my mom.
Paul Beach, Homewatch CareGivers of Naperville https://www.homewatchcaregivers.com/naperville/ and Tammy Smith, Peace Hospice Naperville https://www.peacehospice.net/ have teamed up to help our most needy at this time.
Paul and Tammy are collecting leftover food items which have been donated by local company Eby-Brown Corporation http://www.eby-brown.com/. In coordination with Edward-Elmhurst Hospital Transitional Care Clinic Care Managers, Paul and Tammy are going to their patients homes and distributing the food to those who have been greatly affected by the recent Shelter-In-Place mandates.
What a great partnership to help our neighbors during these trying times. We definitely are all in this together.

🌻We Are Open, We Are Here to Help and We Are Hiring🌻
Is anyone looking for work?
🌻 Is anyone looking for work? Want to make a huge difference in a senior’s life? Especially now? Are you comfortable going into an elderly client's home to assist with meal preparation, grocery shopping, laundry, medication reminders, tidying and being a great companion for a few hours? There is a demand for more care as seniors are encouraged not to leave their homes. Flexible schedules, all the training you need, heavy focus on infection control and protection. Caregivers are considered “essential persons” needed to protect the health and safety of their families and not add to the burden of our at capacity health system. If you are healthy, caring, honest, reliable and friendly we would love to have you join our team wonderful Homewatch CareGivers team! Families need you! Please call our office at 331-702-9975.

We need short term, round the clock care for my mother as she declined. The caregivers were experienced with clients who were on hospice and understood the need for staying with familiar routines, giving repetitive compassionate care, and working with the requests of our family. It may take a few adjustments to get the right team but these ladies are fantastic caregivers! Homewatch Caregivers of Naperville is a professional agency to work with and my family recommends the great people who serve there.
We love our caregivers at HWCG! Enjoyed honoring & celebrating them on Friday, National Caregivers Appreciation Day! Thanks for all you do! For any help with your home care needs, please call 331-702-9975 or visit hwcg.com/naperville.
