Caregiving is one way that we have chosen to impact the world for the better: Each client. Each Family. Each Caregiver. The unique opportunity to help people as a vocation is what motivates us each day. At Homewatch CareGivers of Crystal Lake, we provide unique philosophies, including “Eden at Home,” as well as superior technology. We bring our hearts into the organization to foster a culture, we believe, that stands above the industry.

Owners Alan and Tamera Mongin are Certified Eden at Home Associates. The Eden philosophy focuses on improving quality of life for elders and their care partners by seeking to eliminate the three plagues of “loneliness, helplessness, and boredom.” Addressing more than just the physical needs of our client benefits the care partners, as well as the care recipient. Bringing this philosophy deep into the culture of the organization is foundational in all we do as owners. The company environment we foster has led many of our caregivers to express that we are different, and the best place they have ever worked.

Tamera has 14 years’ experience working directly in health care. She has also provided leadership, developed coursework and training programs for volunteers, and served the community as a resource for people experiencing difficult circumstances. She currently serves as an officer on the McHenry County Taskforce on Aging board.

As a family, we have long participated in local and international missions, providing help to families in need, and opened our home to children in crisis. Both of us have served as board members to various Christian and non-profit organizations. For both of us day to day ministry comes down to listening, caring, and praying for people in our circle of influence.
