When Dennise Vaughn, Administrator, Homewatch CareGivers heard there was a need in the community to give high school students experience helping others to prepare the students for health careers, she stepped up and said she would put together a program. “In my 27 years as a healthcare professional, mentoring has always been my passion. Helping student explore opportunities may inspire them to do their life’s work.” Vaughn commented.

HomeWatch CareGivers interns in NapervilleThe students had weekly “Homewatch Huddles” to review the client cases and determine which clients they would shadow. The Homewatch CareGivers office also worked on partnerships with other senior service providers to give the students additional experiences. The students worked with Naperville Senior Center Adult Day Services and with Peace Hospice in Naperville.
